Discarded chicken feathers may be basis for new computer circuit boards @ 09:55 pm

I just got finished watching this cool They Might Be Giants documentary I got for Christmas. It's called Gigantic and it pretty much juts chronicles the careers of the Johns. Anyway, one of things I learned from it was that TMBG wrote the theme song for The Daily Show of all places. How weird is that.

They're also the official band of This American Life, my very favoritest radio show.

#1) I totally agree, I friggin love that show. I want to rig up my linux box to record the show automatically and dump it to ogg

#2) Ira Glass has a pretty decent section on the documentary.

1) Sweet!

2) Been meaning to do that for a while. Except mp3 so my ipod can play them. I don't have a fast enough *nix box to really work on it yet, though.

Right now I record Loveline every night just via line-in on my sound card. It works really well, but I want to get a radio card so I can change stations.

Wow, I totally got the numbers backwards. Go me. A beer plus being sleepy = stupid, apparently.

Flood was a great album, but I think I wet my pants

I think I've mentioned this to you before, but when TMBG stayed at the hotel they were the biggest dicks that we've had. Self-absorbed, pompous, and rude (and didn't tip despite needing the bellmen's assistence), I was sorely disappointed considering how much I loved them when I was in junior high and high school.


Not that you can't love them just the same.



(btw, did you and angie still want to meet up this weekend?)

Wow I don't think you told me that about TMBG. That really sucks, I had no idea.

I forgot to reply to you earlier about this weekend. I'd love to go out sometime, but Angie and I are going to the beach this weekend. How about next weekend?

Maybe some other time--let me know what works for the two of you. I 'd prefer Saturday nights over Friday nights.


Oh, and while TMBG were awful for us, they could well have been having a bad day or a rough leg of their tour.
