Journal Journal: Boy, did I get it wrong... 1

About Giuliani. And not with a bang, but with a whimper.

Next, I will post a list of stocks I intend to go long on. You should buy puts on them, even if you have to mortgage your house...


Journal Journal: Ironic numbers

Anyone noticed that Apple's market cap is approaching double that of Dell? Apple won't buy them out - it would just be to close them down....

It's funny.  Laugh.

Journal Journal: Rock and Roll 8

Do you see what they've done to this man? He is as innovative, accomplished and powerful a guitarist as rock music has chewed up and spat out. It's truly the Devil's music.


Journal Journal: WTF? Trent Lott?

The Republicans as we know them are doomed! Doomed, I tell you!


Journal Journal: [Ask /. Subset] 5.1 Computer Speaker Recommendations? 2

I'm looking for a new set of computer speakers with the following minimum feature set:

  • 5.1 surround
  • Wireless rear speakers
  • digital optical input
  • Doesn't look silly.

I'm leaning toward the Logitech Z-5450, if for no other reason that I've had a generally good experience with their products. If anyone knows what the full product space is, I'd be interested.

Journal Journal: Podcast recommendation

Point of Inquiry. Fearless and rational secularism. Their list of interviewees is off the A list - Sam Harris, Dan Dennett, Ann Druyan, Joe Nickell, and on and on. Their host DJ Grothe often plays devil's advocate and asks the tough questions.

Also, this podcast wastes no time on banter or weak humor. Although I must admit a certain affection for this at times, podcasts like Skepticality could shave off 20 minutes with little or no loss of content.


Journal Journal: Boz Burrell has Died

R.I.P. Boz. Although he was arguably the least talented musician to ever play live in King Crimson, this is only because the other guys were so stellar. He was either very brave or delusional to step into that role, but he did allright considering. Later he went on to the mainstream and the big bucks with Bad Company.

He is the first former Crim to cash in his chips.

Time is an illusion perpetrated by the manufacturers of space.
