November 21, 2000

Saw a fire safety film at work last week. The film was Copyright 1991, which explained the hairstyles and clothing choices (pre-Gapification, big hair). One specid thing about the move: The narrator/host walked out of a stairwell and on to an office floor. There was a weird background noise as he spoke and people went about their staged work. The noise? Electric typewriters. Nary a click of a computer keyboard.

I think the last time I used a typewriter was 1998.

Several new CD purchases, most notably Los Lobos: El Cancionero. U2: All That You Can't Leave Behind, and Geddy Lee: My Favorite Headache. More on these later.

Flash generally sucks, and to find it on www.myfavoriteheadache.com is a bit annoying. I'm not sure I like having to go to a web site to get the lyrics for a CD. At least there's a place there for official news and info about a possible tour. Let's see if the notify list they have is actually used.

New Month, New Entry

Quite some time since the main page has been updated. Whoops.

Seems that the Las Vegas pages have been popular at Google with searchers. I should add some more/new text to them. Does anybody find them useful?

Since the weather's been so strangely moderate for this time of year, I was able to dirve out to the suburbs last night with the sunroof open. Pink Moon came on the radio, and I had my own little VW commercial on I-90 out by O'Hare, except it was just me in the Jetta.
