Husky brain rescue

I have indeed been gone for a while. I ventured up to Baltimore, which while often argued to be in the south, is as far north as I go these days, and ended up getting snowed in. Apparently Airtran has made Atlantan snow theories company-wide policy. Represent.

Being in Baltimore does have certain advantages, it does mean that I am without convenient broadband access. Considering I was attempting to avoid weather, venturing out to my lifeline was more service to the dear reader than I was prepared to give. Instead I tried moblogging on flickr, but inside makes for poor pictures. I hope you will understand. My penance is approximately 1000 RSS articles plus message boards I must now slog through.

The good thing about partying like it’s 1999, some totally ordinary winter day in 1999, is that I got to listen to a bunch of podcasts which I had been putting off. Post in point – the Science Friday Podcast with Chris Mooney, author of The Republican War on Science. One caller asked him what he thought of Michael Crichton’s State of Fear. Mooney took the classy way out, simply noting that in a work of fiction the author may bend reality as he sees fit. Not particularly what either of us wanted to hear.


“The Republican War on Science”

Which is why I was so happy when providence dropped RealClimate » Michael Crichton’s State of Confusion in my lap. You can take the debater out of the activity, but you can never take his love of the cite.

Battle of the Bads

Consider, if you will, 3 really bad songs collected as one travels around the internet. And then go one step further. Vote for the one you think is worst here.

Condi will Lead Us

Featured on the Dailiy Show. This song pays tribute to the woman who used to be visible.

We Built this Starbucks

A parody of “we built this city” for a Starbucks corporate event. You Are Dumb (not a)blogged about it.

The World Cyber Games Theme Song

The “event” which “honors” the world’s “best” “cyberathleates” created a “song.”

Fall Media Roundup

I’m going off the grid for a few days, and haven’t really prepared anything to fill the time I’m certain you have budgeted for this site. Thus, I’ll be all spiritual about it and just point you to what has been occupying my time lately.

Amazon links first, more nerdy link following.

He’s as bitter as angostura honey

WFMU’s Beware of the Blog: Van Morrison’s Contractual Obligation Album:

In order to fulfill his obligation to his early solo label Bang Records,Van Morrison sat down in 1967 or so and cranked out 31 songs on the spot, on topics ranging from ringworm to wanting a danish, to hating his record label and a guy named George. Make sure you get past the first few tunes – it takes him a few to get cooking.

No, but maybe if you hum a few bars

Query by Humming at CS.NYU

Computer program identifies the name of a song based on you humming a bit of it.

As a side note, Copyright law makes both the program developer and the program user an infringer. Just today’s reminder of why you should give your fair use rights some lovin’.

George Bush Doesn’t Like Black People | Ourmedia

George Bush Doesn’t Like Black People | Ourmedia:

Given the vast pool of derivative works, Our Media has always been something I can get behind. But now I want to get behind it and do selfish things.
