Stuff of the Day

Update of the Day: I’m dropping the “Brief” portion of this.  Sometimes it’s brief, sometimes, not-so. I’ve not invested the time yet to shove this theme into working like I want (variable-width columns that will adapt automagically to your monitor size/resolution) so when I type in the editor, what looks brief to me (a few lines) ends up appearing 3x as long when shoved into the middle column here.  I’m probably the only person to care about this anyway.  

Not a whole lot to really say other than that here.  I enjoyed Top Gear last night, after a night of new Chuck and Heroes.  Heroes is good, but I’m sort of getting a kind of Robert Jordan-esque sort of impatience with the show.  Baby “Touch and Go (and now Stop)” Parkman is essentially a Deus Ex Machina tool for the show, as he can “Fix” everyone’s powers, and I wish they’d stop fucking with Hiro and give him back his time travel, fix Peter, etc.  Lemme rephrase from above: I really enjoyed Top Gear.  I’ve got the first 10 seasons downloaded, I need to find time to get around to watching all of those.  But my time is finite, and other priorities intrude.  Most of the other things I need/want to do have ended up taking precedence over mere non-interactive entertainment lately.

Oh, and . . . WTFGO Tarheels!

Link of the Day: I almost want this shirt. If the stripe just went all the way around, as it properly should.  (I think.)

Spam of the Day: “Does your child suffer from CP?” – It’s for Cerebral Palsy . . . but the subject is unfortunately (and darkly amusingly) vague.

Pic of the Day: Normal?
