Yes I did Ethan! Ethan, yes I did!

So I left the house to the odd sound of a very echo-y helicopter. Nope. No Echo; 5 helicopters.

It’s been an interesting Day for IP

Microsoft fights to keep “Windows” trademark.

ClearChannel owns a method of media distribution outright. (Why travel to some far-away island to protest the G8 Summit when the PTO and FCC are in a very lovely city? Well, Not lovely right now, but. . . ) Why they should be able to own an artist’s right to reproduce their performance is beyond me. I guess we need a mandatory 5 day waiting period before we can buy CDs.

FCC already gave away some control over your own property. Now they are removing more of it. I hear a lot about “activist judges.” How about we start talking about activist agencies? Especially when they start doing public takings.

Wow, voting with dollars actually works.

Family Guy Returns to production with a Summer 2005 airing date because people bought the (altered versions) DVDs.

Uh, I bought Futurama DVDs too jackasses.

Atlanta’s polution IS pretty bad. . .

Maybe I could really use this. On the other hand, It’s not like there are a shortage of WiFi connections here at Post Zanadoo.

Hey Kids! Lets all choose channel 6!

Hacking (not really) Netflix

I can do without the commentary, but the list of new releases is precisely something I have been looking for. Of course, It’s not like I really need the suggestions.

Freedom of the press is limited to those who got a Dell.

The most sucessfull way to defend the idea of blogging to me is that it drops the cost of publication. This can be good, or cause problems, but it also gives a voice to the masses. The problem is, printed word is old media. Some people are lucky enough to have someone who is willing to spend a ton of money to make their moving pictures dreams come true, but I’m still waiting for desktop producing to come to the masses.

Even if you believe

Andy Kaufman joked about faking his death and showing up 20 years later. Some people tried to keep the faith, some people tried to make it come early in blog form. His old partner threw a party for his return when the 20th rolled around last week. But Andy didn’t show. Which isn’t to say it was a total waste. Visitors who showed up got a free prostitute as a consolation prize. Thankyouverymuch.

Did I ever Mention how much I like derivitive works?

The photographs in this suite are the result of mean averaging every Playboy centerfold foldout for the four decades beginning Jan. 1960 through Dec. 1999. This tracks, en masse, the evolution of this form of portraiture.

6-year Reunion (by invite only)

So we went dark over the weekend because the afore mentioned guest did in fact arrive, 8 days late. While the arrival was not anywhere near Noon, that’s ok. I had other things to pick up at noon on Friday.

The Ben Stiller Show (1992)

The Ben Stiller Show aired on a fledgling FOX for less than a full season with the worst ratings of the year. The poster child for unseen talent the show had the titular Ben Stiller, Bob Odenkirk and (to a lesser extent) David Cross of Mr. Show Fame, A pre-political Janeane Garofalo and a still-functioning Andy Dick. The show also had a string of guest stars who had no business being on the show.
The show has definite highs and lows, but the most interesting thing about it is that a large percentage of the shows were written by Bob Odenkirk, making the show something of a preview for Mr. Show.
