There’s not really been a whole lot of news this week in my world. I’m feeling a lot healthier now, but that’s pretty much it.  I’m not thrilled about the weather, but that’s not surprising.  I was really hoping to stay at or around 50 deg F for at least a couple of days.

In the cool stuff department, check out this article.  The HUD maybe be closer than we think.


Big Butter and Birds


YEAH TOAST!! Heywood Banks was at the Buskirk-Chumley Saturday for a sold out show and was amazing as usual. It was definitely worth the 7 year wait to see him again. I picked up a copy of “Big Butter”, had it signed, and ended up giving my Sharpie to him in the process.

I got a chance to try out the new Songbird media player yesterday. It’s still lacking some features, but it’s really showing a lot of promise.  It’s built on Mozilla’s platform, so the extensions can be downloaded to customize it. Even though it says it’s a “Developer Version” don’t be afraid to download it and give it a spin. Do remember it’s not even to ver.1.0 yet, so don’t slam it too badly if it’s missing something you think it should have (though it’s impressive for ver.0.4).
