my roots are made of grass

Although I have been known to proclaim the heart-felt joys of Podcasts for some time now, I generally do not suggest any particular one (other than suggesting new ones for people already "in the know", on occasion).

I am now making an exception to that.

Brave Men Run, a podiobook by Matthew Wayne Selznick, is the best audiobook I believe I have ever listened to. And, since podiobooks are the best thing to happen to podcasts since XML, I think it's my favorite podcast of all time!

And I've only heard 3 episodes so far!

Basically, I would summarize the story as "it's like x-men...but with real people". It is a novel "of the sovereign era"... the "sovereigns" are basically the "mutants"...humans with extra, or enhanced, abilities. The story revolves around a high-school kid named Nate...and he really seems like a real high-school kid. The story is well written, I can relate to the characters well... I'm definitely enjoying this story!

Check it out yourself!

well THAT was a dissapointment...

Note to self. In fact, note to everyone anywhere in, near, or possibly visiting, New England.

DO. NOT. GO...

to the Boston ChowderFest...unless, and until, they figure out how to RUN ONE.

Reports indicate that the recent 'fest in Newport, RI, had over 30 restaurants on-site, showing off their chowder ( http://www.newportfestivals.com/Chowder_Cook_Off/ ).

How many did Boston have, you ask? Surely they have a large number, being a large city, central in New England, with tons of restaurants in the area, you say.

You would be wrong.

Very, very wrong.

The grand number, my friends, is not "over 30"...it's not "close to thirty".

Hell, it isn't even double-digits.

The number...is 3.

But wait! It gets BETTER! One of the three (the group that WON THE VOTE FOR BEST CHOWDER LAST YEAR!)...ran out of chowder. Less than half-way through the event.

All I have to say is: when the booth giving out free samples of baked beans is better than your main event... you are doing something very, very wrong.

Weapons of Math Instruction

At New York's Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule, and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, an official said he believes the man is a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a fearsome cult,", he said. "They desire average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute value. They use secret code names like "x" and "y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns", but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. "As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, there are 3 sides to every triangle," Ashcroft declared.

When asked to comment on the arrest, he said "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes.

"I am gratified that our government has given us a sine that it is intent on protracting us from these math-dogs who are willing to disintegrate us with calculus disregard. Murky statisticians love to inflict plane on every sphere of influence," he said, adding: "Under the circumferences, we must differentiate their root, make our point, and draw the line."
He warned, "These weapons of math instruction have the potential to decimal everything in their math on a scalene never before seen unless we become exponents of a Higher Power and begin to factor-in random facts of vertex."

He said, "As our Great Leader would say, read my ellipse. Here is one principle he is uncertain of: though they continue to multiply, their days are numbered as the hypotenuse tightens around their necks...."

New blog location (maybe)

I'm trying out blogger, for a few reasons:

  • It's by google (i think)
  • it integrates with hello/picasa (for pics) (which are by google)
  • i set it up to work with feedburner, so it can make podcasting easier
  • it's new and cool (or something)
