Really lovely Quartz Compositor screensavers by the folks at Plasq. Requires Mac OS X 10.4.


I hope they mean “rapping”

Oh, Homer, no
. Perhaps the worst part is that the condition is listed as “used”.


worst. rerun. ever.

September 7th, 2006

I just saw an ad saying that on September 11th the Today Show will be re-broadcasting their show from September 11, 2001.

I didn’t want to see it the first time, even though I couldn’t take my eyes off the TV. Being a native New Yorker with family still there, and living in between Dulles Airport and the Pentagon at the time, I was mostly concerned about what the hell was going on in both both places. If I thought I needed to see the frequently faulty coverage (on the DC stations at least) of 9/11 again, I would have TiVo’d it and run off some DVDs for some card-carrying masochists.

What NBC is doing feels no different than ESPN Classic replaying past World Series games. I just don’t understand why anyone who was either in the thick of the attacks, who couldn’t have cared less, or who was somewhere in the motional middle would want to see this.

So if you happen to be watching NBC Monday morning and see planes hitting the Twin Towers, it is not, I repeat, not a Civil War re-enactment type of deal, but I’m sure we can look forward to that next year.

From the wildly talented production team that brought you the video for “War Photographer“, it’s “hinese Translation” — the new video for the single off the new M. Ward album, “Post-War“. Needless to say, it’s fantastic.
