Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.
Marissa Mayer on Charlie Rose. (Curious that they're embedding Google Video here.) ((Also, expect Owen to say something snide and probably inaccurate in 5... 4...))
Two other Owen-related links: Where does Owen steal his material from? and Kitty's Got Claws.

Done. "Perhaps around the same time Mayer started dabbling dilletantishly [sic] at cross-country skiing and marathon running, where she's consistently placed in the back fo [sic] the pack."

Just found out that she is from Wausau and we went to the same high school (me being a few years ahead, ahem). So in my eyes, this girl can do no wrong and by Sconi law, I'm required to throw down on anyone that disses her.

That static shot before the video loads looks at a glance like it's from the mid-80s. I wonder what kinda (outdated?) technology the Charlie Rose show uses...
ps. Curious that they're embedding Google Video? Not really, all of Charlie Rose runs through GV... Unless you meant that it was curious simply in the context of this video...

I actually thought the "good students are good at all things" was a funny little zinger. (Different post though.)
Anyway, in broader news, has anyone else noticed that both Owen and Ryan Tate (and Gabe Snyder, when he bothers to contribute) totally have that same Nick Dentony way of composing and writing posts?
They all end with snipey one-liners that typically are constructed something like "Funny that _____ would say ______. She ought to know better, given ______."
Sometimes I have to scroll back up just to figure out which one was the writer.
