The Grey Album is less great in retrospect

culture shock

 It didn't occur to me right away, but I think I've been blogging for work lately. I'm occupying most of my day with keeping this Military Action Map and this Baghdad Map updated. I gather information from wire reports and present it in blurb style in reverse-chronological order -- how bloggy.

 Culture Shock! Okay, finding out Nora Ephron writes poetry (in the Times!) was a bit much, but Matt Dillon is directing? Since when? His new movie is out next month, starring him, Natascha McElhone, and Gerard Depardieu: City of Ghosts (trailer). Jeesh, next you'll tell me that Playboy is interviewing Steve Malkmus.

 English-language version of Al-Jazeera's website just launched. Also, here's a Al-Jazeera video livestream.

 Wow, everyone is talking about Where Is Raed? lately. Paul Boutin even sends out the sysadmin brigade on him. Dudes, I talked to him three months ago; he's legit.

 New trivia challenge on Amazon.com. Kinda dumb.

 Amy's Robot is one of many out there with an MP3 of Michael Moore's Oscar acceptance speech.

 I didn't buy the Sony V-1 like I said I would. I got the Toshiba M10 instead. I was in a hurry to get a Centrino, and it was the only one available in town. C|Net gave it a good review in their Centrino roundup though. I also thought about the Tablet PC (good PC Mag roundup) but decided it wasn't practical for my needs.

MUSIC NOTES:
 Godspeed You! Black Emperor Questioned as Suspected Terrorists in Oklahoma.
 Zack De La Rocha and DJ Shadow anti-war MP3: "March of Death".
 New Radiohead album to be titled Hail to the Theif.
