Evening Reading: 1/17/08

Rory Blyth and that girl.  Rory writes blog posts the way I used to try to write songs.  It’s hard to explain, but that’s a compliment.  I say try to write songs because I spent teens of hours writing more than a few songs that aren’t nearly as interesting as some of these posts Rory cranks out, seemingly in one take.

Seth Finkelstein’s New Year’s Resolutions.  Good advice for many of us.

TDavid’s sons rock (star).  I played Wii Tennis for the first time at a New Year’s Eve party.  I thought it was a blast, which is why I can’t let my kids talk me into getting a Wii.

Warner is right- this is wrong.

Earl says that for him iTunes is about convenience.  I get that, but I want my music, just like my internet content, to be free-range, existing outside of the Apple, or Facebook, walls.  The deal killer for me was when I found out I couldn’t move music files directly from my computer to an iPod.  Rory tells me about ml_iPod in the Comments.

Steven Hodson talks about the same thing that got me all worked up with the Groundhog Day post.  I don’t know if it’s still getting pumped into Jake’s feed- I unsubscribed when it kept showing up day after day.

So what do you do when you find a giant 40,000 year old mastodon skull?  Auction it off, of course.

Coming soon to the Ocho: competitive video gaming.  I will say that I’d rather watch someone play Frogger than poker.  Or golf.
