Comme i comme a

Today's Home Agenda:
  1. Take care of the kids while O is out on the town.
  2. Tape Buffy the Musical repeat for O.
  3. Tape Iron Chef USA for O and posterity.
  4. Tape Iron Chef on FoodTV for our SFO friends who turned us onto IC in the first place, but do not have cable.
My diurnal rhythms suck. I feel tired around 6-9, then all of a sudden I'm zippy again. I'd like to transfer that perky time back to the daytime. Maybe I'm just more a night person, but it's hard to do that when you've have to get into day care and work at a certain time, and out at a certain time. I'm not complaining, it's just that a decade of hacker hours spoiled me.


Must try harder

I am 35% Metal-Head.

Most other metal-heads acknowledge my presence, but they laugh at me behind my back. Maybe I need to stop spending all that money on haircuts and invest in a few Pantera T-shirts.

Take the Metal-Head Test at Fuali.com!

There was this guy in my dorm who would probably scored only a little higher than me on this test but was metaller than most people who looked the part more. My only metal albums are by Alice In Chains, M�torhead, Sabbath, Sepultura, and Metallica (does War of the Superbikes by the Meatmen count as metal ?), although "Balls to the Wall" by the Scorpions is a catchphrase in our merry household.

Ever see that video of Black Sabbath doing "Paranoid" ? They looked just like Butthole Surfers circa 1986.


It's OK to change your mind

But why is it so hard to do it public ? Like Polly Toynbee, I applaud people who reassess things when the world changes. A misguided desire to appear "authentic" and "steadfast" when things change not only wrecks your credibility, it can lead you into bitterness and irrelevance.


A Hard Look at Iraq Sanctions

Good stuff from The Nation.
