Several things.

First, is this link to the blog about Scott Drave's electric sheep screen saver. Basically, the screen saver uses user's computers to render fractal animations. The result is quite pretty. Hypnotic. Psychedelic. Strangely organic. Compelling. Check it out. Via Boing Boing, as with most cool things.

Second, is this link completely rethinking everything about Star Wars. Doesn't really make it suck less, but it's fun to think about.

Incidentally, I forgot to mention how infinitely cool it was that Uncle Mike and Uncle Clint both had a chance to come and visit young master Jack, no matter how brief. I greatly appreciated it, as a new father and all that.

Listening to Star's End radio right now. In case you're not familiar, it's wonderful ambient music played every Saturday night out of WXPN in Philadelphia. Very very cool, if you're into ambient music. Very atmospheric. Wonderful for setting the mood for a hopefully tranquil and contemplative evening.

New years was fun, except for the puking. Don't know why, but I got really really sick. But I was fine the next day, eventually. What does not kill us, etc. etc.

Jack seems to be eating more. He actually slept long enough this evening (albeit in my arms, mostly) that Beth was able to take a 3 hour nap. Which is kind of a mini-milestone.
