Sad single man I was doing my grocery shopping yesterday when I noticed that the man behind me in the checkout was buying somewhere between 30 to 40 frozen dinners, half a dozen 4-packs of puddings in a cup, three or four family-size bags of chocolate bars, many boxes of those breakfast cereal bars, and other such processed crap, all in multiples. I bagged up my fresh chicken breasts and strawberries and milk and so forth slowly so I could try to count how many frozen dinners he was buying. I couldn't. And let's just say, the man looked like he ate that way. Ew. Being single is no reason not to live like a human being.

She's an elementary school art teacher, and one of the most energetic and creative people I know. I think she's already going stir crazy (she's called me three times today), plus she's got 3-year old twins at home and she'll be missing them terribly, which will make her stay in the hospital that much more difficult.

Anyone know this movie? I'm trying to remember the name of a movie. The plot, as far as I can tell, revolved around a couple of state or federal agents that were sent to a town out west to convince the residents to vacate the land so the government could divert water into the valley. Released in the last few years. I kept thinking that William H. Macy was in it, but I'm not recognizing the name in his IMDB listing. I'm pretty sure the name of the film is a single word. Grazie.

"The Gay Agenda." It always makes me laugh. You know, I can actually understand -- even if it's so not my thing -- people being anti-abortion, anti-gun legislation, pro-war, pro-Jesus, whatever; I can understand people taking those arguments seriously. But "the gay agenda" is still comical to me -- it's just goofy, it makes me think of gay people chasing elderly straight ladies down the street and forcing them to be fabulous and listen to the opera. Or something. Do you have a catchphrase that you simply cannot take seriously?

The RIAA is trying to kill Radio MeCha
Specifically, Music Exchange, an org set up under the DMCA by the RIAA labels and some non-RIAA labels, has 'negotiated' a royalty rate with the Copyright Royalty Board that would cost most internet broadcasters more money than they can possibly make. How does this effect our little occasional broadcasts on LoudCity? "For noncommercial webcasters, the fee will be $500 per channel, for up to 159,140 ATH (aggregate tuning hours) per month." If Radio MeCha is defined as a 'channel', we're screwed. And it's retroactive to the beginning of 2006. If LoudCity is considered a single 'channel', they may be put out of business by the retro charges, but they'll definitely have to jack up the cost to us. Just a little something to brighten up your Saturday Night.
