I wish all antihistamine sellers would print the recommended dosage on the back of each of their little gel packs. I always seem to end up with little pills in my desk and no box to tell me whether I should take one or two. I took two. Hey, I’m an American. More is better. [...]

I was hoping I was going to like Rob Lowe’s new show, The Lyon’s Den. For entirely baseless reasons, I was hoping it would be as smartly written as West Wing. But, it’s just a silly soap opera. Are there any good new shows this season?
If you have a chance, you should go out of your way to check out the movie, My Life Without Me. I think it may well be the best movie I’ve seen so far this year. It’s pretty sad, so if you’re the type to cry at the movies, you may want to take some [...]
Making Fiends is sick and beautiful. Mmmm… Twisted Media. Thank you internet. And thank you Incoming Signals.
Wow! The US version of Coupling is horrible. H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E.!!!!! I knew it would suck, but I had no idea it could possibly be so stilted and unfunny. The weird thing is, most of the script seems to be taken straight from the UK version. Same jokes, but really just way less funny than the original. [...]
So, I was watching The Screensavers (I know, but what can I do? I’m just a big ol’ geek). Anyway, they did a segment on the Slimp3. I’ve looked at all those things, but never had any interest. Thing is — they have a software client that can be used without buying the hardware. Cool!!!! [...]

I wonder what Peter Kuper would do with In a Penal Colony (my favorite and by far the MOST disturbing of [...]
Magnatune: Open, unencumbered MP3s let you try before you buy. Buy and you get the MP3 and a high quality wav file. Even better, buy and 50 percent goes straight to the artist. I hope you’re paying attention RIAA member labels because these guys will get my money while you guys won’t. I just wish [...]
Dude’s Funny: Fortunately, my wife is understanding. She put Post-It notes on all of our large cooking vessels. Each says, in large, clear letters, “Don’t boil the baby.” It confused my parents when they came over, so, when they asked about it, I said “What? Are you saying it’s a good idea to boil the [...]
I was over on MetaFilter, and somebody had linked to this on-line writing workshop deal. I was kind of interested since I’ve been feeling like I’ve been neglecting my creative writing. I like the motivating elements of having assignments and short time frames and peer critiques. However, when I backed up to the main site, [...]
