In exactly one month, I will be sitting down somewhere with 12,000 other terrified applicants to take the New York Bar Examination.

Out For The Weekend

Going to Cali for my brother’s graduation in a lightening trip. Nearly 20% of the time away will be spent in airplanes, airports, or other modes of transcontinental transportation.

Be back on Monday, somewhat groggy from the red-eye.

And The Oscar For Best Sound Editing Goes To


I was flipping through the new feature list for Leopard and noticed that one of the demo movies… well, it needed a little more punch. So I fixed it.

Not to mention that the new soundtrack better represents, I think, what the whole Time Machine experience must be like…

Always Remember

The Key Date Is June 29

| 1 Comment

So the big Apple news tonight is that new ads for the iPhone have been broadcast tonight, showing of the UI and advertising the launch date for the device (in case you’re wondering, the launch date is June 29).

The UI as demonstrated is quite clever, and one of the ads features the disembodied hand looking up a restaurant… but unlike most ads of this kind, the restaurant that they look up is a real restaurant.

One thing I noticed was that the date on the iPhone that’s being demonstrated is June 3… which just happens to be the same day that the ads first aired.

Stop! It's The Police!

Stewart Copeland reviews the Police’s gig in Vancouver:

“Crack!” on the snare and I’m in, so Sting starts singing. Problem is, he heard my crack as two in the bar, but it was actually four – so we are half a bar out of sync with each other. Andy is in Idaho. …

We changed the keys of EVERY LITTLE THING and DON’T STAND SO CLOSE so needless to say Andy and Sting are now on-stage in front of twenty thousand fans playing avant-garde twelve-tone hodgepodges of both tunes. …

It usually takes about four or five shows in a tour before you get to the disaster gig. But we’re The Police so we are a little ahead of schedule.

As you may have known, May was National Hamburger Day, which was delicious enough, albeit perhaps a bit tough on the cholesterol count; as it turns out, the first day after National Hamburger Day turns out to be National Doughnut Day!

Who knew?
