Sorry, Simon and Garfunkel

I'm not going a back to a silent, no-sound-card-having computer again.

Okay, you're all going to comment (well, Deidre will, at least) to tell me how I'm like a billion years behind everybody else who uses the Internets, but I have been listening constantly to Pandora internet radio and whatever algorithm they're using is like magic!  I just told them I want music like the Decemberists, the Mountain Goats, the Old 97s, Kimya Dawson, Vamipre Weekend, and about 4 or 5 others, and BAM! I've got more mellow angsty music than I can shake a stick at.

AND, like the Jurassic Park dinosaurs, IT LEARNS!  Okay, so my iPod can do this too, but fuck off, okay?  I can even tell things to go away for a month if it keeps coming on too much.

Anyways, I really am just looking for an excuse to ignore the pile of papers on my table that need to be graded.

Glad you found it.

Dude, if anyone is behind in the use of the Internets, it's me. I don't even update my blog, and I'm so too lazy to figure out how to put anything more than pictures on it. That being said, I did first use Pandora in the summer of 2005.

And, I should add that while you and Tyson are speed-demon blog readers and commenters, your correspondence by real mail is behind the times, to say the least. Even the Phoenecians wrote letters, especially as a courtesy after having received them from family and friends! Which reminds me: I thought that there was a subscription to Gourmet magazine coming my way.
