Yes, it's true, i have returned virtually unscathed from the Freezing Ass cold that was Michigan.
When i left there early christmas morning, it was 5 degrees.
Horrible, to say the least.
So i'm a bit tired right about now, plugged in with my headphones on and staring at the computer screen i call home here at work.
I managed to visit with nearly all the people i wanted to visit with, barring a few peeps that managed to slip through.
Here tis a few notable things i've been sent today:
Is Your Desk Making You Sick?
This should appeal to nearly anyone who works in an office, like myself. Watch what you're picking up! and clean that keyboard as much as possible.
This here's a brand new blog from Tomas, outgoing editor of XLR8R magazine. Seems like it might be pretty cool.
Rumsfeld says 9-11 plane 'shot down' in Pennsylvania
Wow, this is quite a stunning slip and/or declaration made by the increasingly embattled Rumsfeld. People should really be looking into this deeper.
Massive Earthquake Kills Over 23,000 Across Indian Ocean Region
The tsunami in Southeast Asia is beyond frightening, especially since i live so damn close to the Pacific Ocean and has made me reassess potential emergency situations that could happen here.
For some up-close-and-personal pics from the scene, check out these scary pics from Phuket.
The iPod Generation
Great story on one of the hottest trends, and changing the way we listen to music. I know i've been forever changed by iTunes (probably more so than my iPod actually) and the iPod.
Hooray For Ulrich!
anybody that knows me, understands my intense -- and recent -- devotion to Ulrich Schnauss, triggering the classic "how did i not know about him before?"
anyway, here's an mp3 blog with some great downloads of past and present work by Mr. Schnauss.
you know he's going to be near or at the top of my list of best albums of 2004. stay tuned for that post later this week.
Speaking of best albums of 2004, i just realized that the Detroit Free Press, for whom i've been a longtime contributor, printed their top albums of 2004.
My contributions are: Scissor Sisters, Magnetic Fields and Ulrich Schnauss.
so right there, you already know three albums that will be making my top 10 of the year.
ya'll come back now, ya here?
