New (Kinda) Music Website

A friend of mine sent me a link to http://www.id1g1t.com , a search engine that allows you to find your favorite artists and listen to their music. Poppet says there's a way to save the music to your computer, but I'm not very technologically savvy, so I haven't gotten it to work yet. At any rate, i...

There's a superstore in the Midwest called Meijer--as my dad says, you can get apples on one side of it and underwear on the other. Anyway, I'm going there at 11:30, doing my grocery shopping, then picking up the new Harry Potter book. No one (and NO screaming kids!) will be there, so I won't have t...

It's quite possible that he's responsible for the conception of my younger sister. He was a hell of a singer, and I'll miss him.

My father was born in 1952, in southern Mississippi, and remembers being afraid of white people because of what they could do to him and his family. I hate to say it, but I agree with him: justice delayed is justice denied. A guilty verdict--on MANSLAUGHTER!--won't bring those three men back. Still,...

Agreed, darlin'. The first time I heard that album, I was mesmerized for weeks. It's a true shame he wasn't able to give us more.

Spooky, I'm glad to hear that the good Doc is feeling better. No matter what Dr. Spooky says, make him take as much time off as is feasible--strokes run on both sides of my family, and I've seen first hand what they can do. As my grandmother would say, "tell him to sit his ass down somewhere!"

My boyfriend dragged me to the midnight showing, and I have to admit that I was amazed. And all the happiness didn't come from seeing Christian Bale shirtless (though...uh...yeah. That helped). Liam Neeson was a bad ass, Rutger Hauer found a new way to be sleazy and evil, Morgan Freeman was cool in ...

Went to a midnight showing. The visuals are stunning, and the story itself is well conceived. However, as a fellow nerd friend of mine said, "it would have been a perfect movie if it weren't for the sounds coming out of the actors' mouths that were supposed to be words." George Lucas has the mind of...

You spoil me, y'all do. Funny you should mention Samuel Delany, Bobster--I presented a paper on him and James Baldwin a few weeks ago at a symposium. I haven't tackled "Dhalgren" yet, but I'll finish it if it's the last thing I do. I've read "Trouble on Triton" and "Aye, and Gomorrah", but I've hear...

Agreed about "Here Come the ABC's"--I bought it and i don't have kids. Their children's stuff is awesome.

A couple of weeks ago, a coworker of mine burned me a copy of a version of "Rainbow Connection" by....Willie Nelson. Sweetest song ever--I imagine kids would adore it.
