Random things that made me happy so far today: More live Bonerama recordings. Bonus happy points for ‘Lost My House’, ‘Hard Times’, and ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ Best Game Ever: Fun and heart-warming. Iowa is thisclose to having a smoking ban! Woo! [Though I honestly wonder what will become of The Deadwood.] Spending time online with […]
but this news bite from the IMDB today made me smile: Theaters Begin Barring Children Some theater chains have begun barring children from theaters after 8:30 p.m. if they are not accompanied by their parents — in hopes of attracting more adults who are put off by the disruptive behavior of some kids, according to […]
From the Colbert Report last night: I had a doctor’s appointment this morning and I saw a chick carrying the book in the waiting room and she looked like she was only 1/4 of the way through. Seriously? Didn’t everyone finish it this weekend? I was done at 1:30pm on Sunday and that was only […]

This seems like it would appeal to Utech most, but who knows who else might find it fascinating: Fantasy Sports? Childâ€šÃ„Ã´s Play. Here, Politics Is the Game. – New York Times or if you want to skip the NYTimes rigamarole all together: Fantasy Congress
