It's "This Diamond Ring" for Me


or "Tired of Waiting for You" by the Kinks, if you look at the UK chart (which is much cooler than Gary Lewis and the Playboys).

What was the #1 song on the day you were born?

What happens to you when you write the worst song about rock and roll ever?


This is what happens.

One Word Movie (onewordmovie)

The name says it all:
One Word Movie
I've only tried 'guitar' and 'library.'
Anyone else tried something interesting?

MIT students research Aluminum hat effectiveness


On the Effectiveness of Aluminium Foil Helmets:
An Empirical Study

Book just finished

On the way out to California Tuesday, I finished Chuck Palahniuk's newest,
Haunted.

Now, I'm a big fan of Fight Club, but this one was a bit dissapointing. I thought several of the stories had promise but the ending just fell flat.
Anyone else want to weigh in?

Night Music with Jools Holland & David Sanborn

I'm posting this in hopes someone sees this and lets me know if there are any copies of this great show floating around. Do you guys remember it? I want to say it was on late night on Sunday, and featured a variety of musicians, all playing together. The combinations were always way out there, but the music was fabulous. I'm thinking Hal Wilner had something to do with it.
Does anyone have copies of this show?

A whole month?

Man, has it really been a whole month since I posted? What's wrong with you people? How come someone didn't wake me up when the alarm was supposed to go off?
Jeez, OK, I'll get something up right away.
