When Did Tandy Start Designing Websites?

All of my posts have been short lately and this one will be no exception. Just one month left of school so I'm busy but I took a break and spent a few minutes on one of the coolest band websites I've seen recently. The Raconteurs. Maybe it's because I remember when computer screens really looked like this, but I loved it, especially how you navigate around sans mouse. Say what you will about them, I like Brendan Benson, and the song "Steady As She Goes" but they do risk overexposure.

Too Two Political?

Two semi-political posts in a row? Is that too much?

Did you see SNL with the Al Gore as president opening sketch? Priceless!

Catch it will it's still up on youtube

5/16/06 - Of course, the video has now been removed. Try this link if you didn't see it. You have to click the video link and choose QuickTime or WMP.

Big Fish

According to this article, when asked about his greatest moment of the last five years, GWB said it was catching a 7.5 pound fish.

Yep, that sounds about right...

Smile Like You Mean It

Here are the things that made me smile today:

A sunny day with no school and no work

Waking up without an alarm clock

Spending part of the day washing my car

Almost reaching my fundraising goal for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life

Chocolate soymilk and banana in a blender

The new Mac ads with the guy who played Warren on Ed

My apartment's secret garden in full bloom

My nice landlord being sure I saw it since it is kinda secret even to me

Hanging new art on my walls

Listening to Tamara's master's thesis, a 35 minute radio spot about Mormon dating in NYC

That wonderful moment at the doctor's when your name is called and you get to leave the waiting room - then leaving with a clean bill of health

Making vacation plans for the end of school

Hope you had a day full of smiles too.
