The iPod Death Clock

According to this, mine's got less than a year left before it buys the farm. That's not good. #link


The AV Club interviews Steven Wright

From last November. Steven Wright is a comedy genius, and a great performer to boot; when I saw him live a few years ago he did two-and-a-half hours straight, no breaks. That's something. #link


Manhattan Elsewhere

What would Manhattan look like if it could be floated to another city? Nice work, but an even more radical thought occurs: what if any city could float? We can already reclaim land from the sea and live on soil where there was recently only water -- what's stopping us from constructing a true floating city? And I don't mean some humongous ocean liner -- I mean a giant man-made island that could be propelled from one sea to another. Rather than a Manhattan Elsewhere, how about a Manhattan Anywhere? #link
