Battle of the bulge

Odd, this fascination with Republican bulges. First it was the bulge in Bush's back during the debates, and now it's Cheney's bulge. Either it's a wardrobe malfunction and we need to recommend a new tailor for senors Bush and Cheney, or we may have found one of the WMD.
A few years back, I bought Pink Martini's Sympathique and saw them in concert once or twice. That phase passed, and I haven't touched the CD since. They just came out with a new album, Hang on Little Tomato, and you can listen to it in lo-fi in its entirety on their website, through Pink Martini Radio. Time to put them back on the playlist for a bit and reminisce about daydream about travels through South America and Europe.
First was DJ Danger Mouse's Grey Album, a remix of the Beatles White Album and Jay-Z's Black Album. Now comes the video mash-up, the Grey Video, of the track "Encore" from the Grey Album. Is that John breaking it down? I just got served.

I was just thinking, yesterday, about the inadequacies of Mapquest for walkers/subway riders in NYC, and then today I read about HopStop. The site provides combination walking/subway directions. Now they just need to add checkboxes options so you can ensure you see a Chinese guy playing the erhu somewhere along the ride.

One must feel a sense of happiness for the two, the type of relieved joy you feel for two people you never thought would find love.
James sent me a link to the board game our family will be playing this Christmas. Wasn't this in a James Bond movie once? James saw a Hot Dog, Spiderman, and Mister Miyagi playing this at a Halloween party.
Half-Life 2 looks like a lot of fun. Too bad I don't have a PC anymore.
This Room Defender looks really cool. Too bad I'm not a kid anymore.
