Hot Fuzz

Hells yeah! The teaser trailers for “Hot Fuzz” are online!

As a Simon Pegg/Nick Frost/Edgar Wright fan I honestly cannot wait for this film to come out. Does anyone have any idea when it’ll be released in The States?

P.S. Keep an eye peeled for the “Shaun of the Dead” hat tip towards the end — those of you in the know (My we’re condescending, aren’t we?) ought to get a kick out of it… ;)

Tangerine

So I’m letting the much buzzed Tangerine scan thru my Powerbook’s iTunes library (Don’t judge the Beyonce or Timberlake, okay?) so I can see how well it works at automagically building playlists based on BPM and beat intensity. From what I’ve read about it so far, it sounds promising — but we’ll see how well it works once I’ve had the chance to road test it by loading up the Shuffle for my evening walks.

BarCamp LA, The Weblog

The BarCamp wiki is great for coordinating planning and all, but I’ve got a theory that we can spread the word on BarCamp LA related events (monthly dinners, future BarCamps, etc.) better with a proper weblog. Check it out if you’ve got a second!

P.S. If you’re free the weekend of November 11th & 12th, swing on by the Little Radio Warehouse. The price (free) is right if nothing else… ;)

Lady Sov Tops TRL

Yesterday, the (almost) unthinkable happened, as Lady Sovereign’s video for “Love Me or Hate Me” vaulted to number one on MTV’s “Total Request Live” countdown. Yes, more people voted for Lady Sovereign being chased by a ghost hamster than Justin Timberlake and T.I. in “My Love”.

News like this is almost enough to get me watching MTV again. Almost.

Registration

Yesterday’s election flavored edition of ZeFrank’s The Show is out-fucking-standing. Go watch it now. Don’t worry, I’ll be here when you get back.

Seriously tho… If you watch only one piece of internet video this week, then you’ve probably never heard of YouTube. But that’s beside the point, isn’t it?

P.S. You still have time to inform yourself before the November 8th election comes around. It might be a good idea to do that. Just saying, that’s all…

New York City Stories :: CBGB

This is a great skit from last week’s SNL featuring Fred Armisen and Amy Poehler as Lou Reed and Patti Smith riffing on the demise of CBGB. Since it’s on YouTube, I’m sure NBC will smack it down pretty quickly — so watch it while you can…

Just Browsing

So I’ve been using the Firefox 2.0 betas (as well as the release candidates) for the past couple months as my primary browser at work and I have to say that I’ve really come to like it quite a bit. So much so that I’m actually considering getting rid of my beloved pimped out version of Safari.

Since I spend a lot of time in a browser, switching over can be a pretty monumental task — but at this point the built in spell-check and crash recovery as well as all the freaking extensions out there are really starting to make the hassle worth it.

Then again, I loved Flock too — but a built-in weblog editor and Flickr client, while quite novel, still weren’t enough to get me to switch. *shrug* Get back to me in a couple months and we’ll see where I stand, I guess…

Little Superstar, I Love You

Plus One

It’s time to mark the start of another year on Sarah‘s calendar. She’s now officially the age where she can get a break on her insurance and rent a car without any penalties. And while that’s kind of boring compared to the American porn/tobacco/voting age (18) and the booze/nightclub age (21), I still think its a respectable place to be.

Happy quarter century, my lovely little doe. I love you so very much that my heart feels as if it might explode every time we touch or I’m near you. May your next quarter century be as interesting and full of potential as one you just completed.
