"When asked to give a quote for the dust jacket to Kurt Cobain's posthumously published diaries submitted this quote: 'Please don't do this to me after I kill myself.' (The publishers opted not to use the quote.)" - From the Eel's All about Blinking Lights and Other Revelations. You can listen to a little bit of it here.

Apple's Magic Act (January 12) |
The Mac Mini and the iPod Shuffle may sound like good news to some, but one Fool thinks he hears the sound of Steve Jobs slipping his foot into a neoprene booty, slipping on Fonzi's leather jacket, and preparing to take a trip off the ramp and over the shark tank. By Seth Jayson

Living Up to the iHype (January 13) |
Don't let the headlines fool you (little f). It's about more than the iPod. But the amazing increases in profitability at Apple have one Fool wondering if he's not the one putting on the leather jacket and grabbing for the waterski rope. By Seth Jayson

Post (Halifax Locals)

Junior Boys (makers of Last Exit) at Reflections on March 4th.

That is, if I can believe what I read on the internets.

Here is a thing on the Concert for Asia and an EPK thingy for Matt Mays.

Note: ex-pats Bontempi have a nice, cozy home on the web.

Yet another "next big thing" article on Buck 65 (<- recently renovated).

Stupid Baby Names

Some may see this as a new low, but I can't help it if parents are stupid enough to label there kids with such silly handles...and publish it in a newspaper. It's not like I am making fun of how stupid many of them look. That would be cruel.

Here are some dandy ones:
* Cash Bartholomew Bertolo
* Maximilian Logan Butler
* Connor John Joseph Cool
* Ayla Laurine Pearl Hogg-Chasbassol
* Logan William Kenneth Leigh Stewart

I also noticed a pattern of frigging up the spelling (I am one to talk) of normal names like these: Emyleigh, Emilee, Rebekah, Rebekkah, Sydnee, and Madyson. Also, the mash-up is popular, like Rylan, and I also gave bonus points to someone for naming their child Autumn Pilgrim.
