Something strange has happened in the last two weeks to me. I find myself refreshed, renewed, and ready to do some serious work. It really is a pleasant change over the semi-burned out standard of the last couple of months. I’m not sure what brought it on, but I’m very happy about it.
I spent the weekend celebrating birthdays. My friend Jean-Claude had his on Friday.
I’ve been diggin in the lyrics of the new Beastie Boys’ record. As usual, there are amusing and obscure cultural references.
C-Net has a great Gadget section. One of the article explains why DIVX is crap. Seeing as how I own a DVD player, I am biased against this technology. I really like the DVD technology, but I hate the fact that I can’t capture video or stills from it because of its copy protection.
I’m doing a lot of writing. I’m working on a piece for a print publication that is about pirate radio moving to the Web. If you know anything I should cover or know, please mail me.
I also bought a new PlayStation over the weekend. My old one burned itself out on carpet fibers. Word to the wise: don’t use yours sitting directly on the carpet.
