So, inspired by a link over on the ol' Metafilter, I went over to yongfook.com and went exploring. I found this written about a little thing called Carrot Au Lait:

"I’m going to make it a personal mission of mine to race through the streets shaking people violently, screaming “THIS DRINK IS DISGUSTING AND THE EMPEROR IS NAKED” until either people understand and companies stop selling this foul-tasting opportunistic rubbish, or I get run over by a huge truck carrying a shipment of acorn jam to the citizens of crackpot land."

Had me laughing quite a bit. Think I might read some more of this chap.

In the it's a small world after all category, I saw William Chesser at Hugo's the other night. If you're reading this Will, 'Hi there.' Anyway, conversation came around to Will (who incidentally did not go to AGS with me, but I do believe that he attended a few years later) possibly going for Brad Lawless's (an old friend of mine from AGS) job after he leaves it to start his own company (hope I got that right). Then Ken, who's sitting right next to me (and also related to me tangentially through mutual friends that went to AGS with me), tells me that he took Brad's old job at Tyson. Seriously. Small world. It's even crazier and wierder than that, but I won't go into that here, since it involves old girlfriends and so on.

Anyone else think that the word verification on blogger looks like Welsh? "zwmkgskl"

Oh yeah, via getlofi, is this cool project over at ruinProjects. Click on the "Portable Modular." That's very close to what I have in mind for my massive circuit bending, DIY synth project, except mine's going to be more on the circuit bending/using found circuits side of things, a la David Tudor. Still need to find a proper case for the project, and I think that a portable turntable like what Jomdom is using here is very cool, and I might look for something like that.

Well Brad, the grass is always greener.

Ken, Yeah but why do you have the same bitching hairdo as Brad?! Huyh HUH and his old job. huh! huh!

And come on, being Brad isn't all it's cracked up to be. [His student loan debt alone . . . .] I'm sure you have figured that part out by now and gave up to move to LR. (heh heh ;))

Moving to LR? Hide the ferrets!!! (oh wait that's someone else)
