I saved your screen shot Bill, thanks it works! Have to toggle it off and on but that's little to bear.

Anyone else think Hulu blows?

rino,

You're welcome. The proxies are a moving target (at times). If one stops working, one must search for alternatives. If anyone has any tips on doing this, I would appreciate it.

What a journey.

one more Q... what's the Mac user's best lap solution for keyboard/mousing? I want to sit on couch and use my mac+projector, but a regular mouse is da-bust. Keyboard with touch/track-pad, trackball, IBM-like pointing nipple/joystick, anything else?

What a journey.

Choral Music for Palm Sunday: 'Miserere'


Basically it goes like this: the Miserere was written by Gregorio Allegri and once the Pope heard it wanted it all his own to play only in the Sistine Chapel during Holy Week. Well, a young Mozart (14) happened to visit and heard the piece. That night the musical prodigy transcribes the score, and went to hear it again to correct his mistakes. The piece made it to London where it was published in 1771 and the ban by the Catholic church from playing it anywhere but the Sistine Chapel during holy week was lifted.

Funny story considering the tight asses who just want more money for the studios and their pockets. (also think this one across the line when discussing wealth and homelessness)

The Bionic Woman finally gets to London. The show made it debut in London. But... SO WHAT??? It's canceled.

What a journey.

LMOTP is pretty cute, and interesting the way it seems to show people taking a lot of things in stride. plenty of sitcom in it, still, though.

If anyone wanted to learn some interesting info on 'the trouble' in northern ireland, I highly recommend it.

What a journey.

I was feeling depressed and in a mood to punish myself. It worked.

Scattered moments of cheesy fun drowned in a sea of awfulness.

Heh.

I only saw that movie because a good friend wanted to see it and was moving out of state (to MN, now Cali) and I obliged. It was the last time we hung out...

Ha. I actually really enjoy movies with bad production value/poor writing cheesy special effects (think any horror film made . Something about how ridiculous they are make me laugh. Snakes on a plane made such little sense, I could find nothing redeeming out of it...

I have weird musical tastes. Music that I've wanted to buy, but can't, from either iTunes or Amazon:

Kimiko Kasai's "Butterfly" album - Disco with a Japanese torch singer and Herbie Hancock beats. Awesome, intense, transcendent of the genre.

The Jay-Z "American Gangster" instrumental (oddly enough, the original, the lackluster "Make the Road By Walking" by the Menahan St. Band, was available on iTunes.) I really despise Jay-Z's rap style. Don't know why, it just grates. But the music... yeah. Take all that is awesome in New Orleans brass band jazz, and bring it to a sharp, sober focus - wow. I know a fat man with a tuba who sits in the park playing for nickels all day, and he emailed me to say that track changed everything. Jazz albums from NOLA next year will be awesome.

Anything and everything by Cop Shoot Cop, especially the fantastic "Ask Questions Later." Seriously, these guys are insanely influential and sound as edgy and new today as they did in '89. They kinda went off their meds and fucked over their label on the last album, so that may be why they've disappeared from everyone's catalog. By "they" I mean "he."

Music that I will be buying from the local record store run by music nerds: all of the above. Special Order sometimes does require channels we can't get to on the internet.

Do not watch The long drawn out assassination of Jesse James. It's a long drawn out movie about nothing.

Saw Big Fish tonight. I love Tim Burton, but never thought I would really enjoy this movie as much as I did. Makes me mad I didn't have interest in Sweeney Todd.

interest as in curiosity or financial?
