More pointless time-wasting crap
Songs without lyrics quiz

I normally am not that interested in online quiz games, but it's interesting to see where your pop-music knowledge peaks (obviously the 90s is where it's at for me):

60s: 22/36
70s: 24/36
80s: 32/40
90s: 31/36
00s: 19/36

Musn't... Pun...
New York Times stoops low, publishes article on puns.

Obviously the writer has never witnessed a game of 187.

187 Op-Ed Contributors walk into a bar, the bartender says, "We don't serve your kind here." The Op-Ed Contributors reply, "Why? Just because we love Op-Eds? It's not like we're a pedophile (read: Op-Ed-ophile)!"

Ugh.

Yawn... election predictions... snore...
I predict exactly the same result as in 2006, except with one less Conservative and one more independent (ie., 2).

Rhombus
1) Adventure Time is the greatest video mankind has ever made.

2) Pendleton Ward, who made Adventure Time, has the finest Under Construction website mankind has ever made.

3) It was there that I learned that "Adventure Time" was greenlit by the Cartoon Network. GigaYes.

Nothing on the Schedule Today
NASA is paying people to not move (well, as little as possible) for 90 days in a controlled environment so they can study the effect of long-term immobilization on the human body.

One of them is blogging the experience.

Time Zone Map


Wikipedia has a really nice map of the time zone divisions around the world. Clicking the image will take you to the full 4779x1979 map. A number of interesting political-geographic choices have been made regarding time zones. China is huge, but keeps everything in the same time zone. Europe is pretty wide, but also keeps mostly in 1 time zone. The UK is close enough geographically to be in time with Europe, but is 1 hour off instead. India and some other countries are 30 minutes off the normal hours. It's an entertaining hodgepodge.

She folded her arms beneath her breasts
Author Robert Jordan has passed away.

This is sad. Many years ago I enjoyed some of these books very much.

http://www.dragonmount.com/RobertJordan/

However Gil said the following, Friday night:

"If Robert Jordan dies before he finishes the Wheel of Time series, I am going to kill the whole world."

I am already trembling.

Jarvis Cocker Throws Like A Girl
One of the gems of BBC2's Friday night line-up when I was in high school was the "celebrity game show" Shooting Stars. In fact, it was a part-scripted, part-improv comedy show hosted by Reeves and Mortimer, and was basically just half an hour of celebrities being made the target of cheap jokes. (It was also Matt Lucas's day job before Little Britain.)

YouTube is pretty thin on clips, but this one of Jarvis Cocker doing the 'final challenge' is pretty representative:

How to disable QuickTime movies opening webpages
Some QuickTime movies contain embedded "HREF tracks" that will open a webpage in a browser window during the movie (or at the beginning or end). This is highly annoying, not to mention a possible security risk. I looked far and wide, but I couldn't find a way to stop QuickTime from opening website links embedded in movies it plays.

The fix is to set movies to open in the excellent VLC media player instead of in Quicktime. VLC will play the movie properly, but ignore any links inside of it. On a Mac you can do this by doing "Get Info" on a movie file and changing the "Open With" selection box to be VLC. Then click the "Change All..." button below it.

Time Out -- Say What?
This Time Out New York article describes how cool and hip Montreal is.

Thoughts? Responses?

Here are some items that I particularly enjoyed:

a) Who the Hell stays at Hotel Godin?
b) The ONLY neighborhood they describe is Mile End...wtf?
c) Casa Del Popolo = "relaxing jazz"?
