This is a really cool transcript of this guy trying to teach a class of third graders about binary arithmetic using the Socratic method. In other words, he could only ask questions. It's pretty neat.
You know those Michelina's commercials where they sing an even STUPIDER version of the Macarena? I hate those. I hate them. I vow to never eat a Michelina's frozen meal for the rest of my life. That's how much I hate them.

There's a pretty hot redhead in the commercial. But she ruins it all by singing. Ugh.

So, I'm reading a Storm of Swords. It's part of the Song of Fire and Ice series by George R. R. Martin. Quite good. I love how he makes run of the mill fantasy seem totally new and not cliched at all. It's full of battles, knights, rogues, dragons, bastards, incest, Machievellian intrique, fell magic and blood. Lots and lots of blood. What I love about the series is how he is always willing to kill off his characters. Any of them. The good guys, the bad guys. The bit players, the major players. Anyone can die. Just like in real life. That's cool.

Went to Arsagas on Crossover to hear the live jazz, which happens every Monday night. Very cool. The guys there even played a Sun Ra song. Granted, no Moog synth (as an aside, Sun Ra apparently never paid for his Moog according to this interesting book, Analog Days). The bass player, Jon Barrios was cool and very friendly. If you're free on a Monday night, you should go hear them.

During the drive back home, I turned on KXUA. Walt the Wizard was playing Dub Side of the Moon, a dub reggae version of the Dark Side of the Moon, by Pink Floyd. It's very very cool.
