So the man leans over to me and whispers:
"Neutral Milk Hotel
The Microphones
The Shins
The Dismemberment Plan
Need New Body
The Mountain Goats
Boards of Canada
... and You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Belle & Sebastian
The Hot Snakes
The White Stripes".
And so it shall be done.

Got NS 4.7 and DNS working on my Sun box. Wow, the site looks like poop. That's okay though, since I might be redesigning in the next couple weeks. I know who we can thank for that.

My page is now HTML 4.01 Transitional and CSS compliant. Does anyone still use Netscape 4.7? I made some other changes to the layout, so it is very possible that the site is broken in NS 4.7. The only machine I have that has NS 4.7 is my Sun box, but I can't seem to get DNS lookups to work properly...

I only watched one show this year (other than SportsCenter, but all males watch that so it doesn't count), 24. How, in the name of baby Jesus, did it rank below The Chair and just above Spin City? Good thing there is going to be a second season. If it got deleted like so many other shows this year, I would cry.

Simpsons fan rejoice: Albuquerque's baseball team next year will be the Isotopes.

"Tolls go up if there is only one road in town." So true.

Since starting my new job back in April, I have had almost nothing to do. I have found creative ways to make myself look busy but there are only so many hours a person can spend at Slashdot and fark.

Well, today was given an actual assignment. It is something simple (rebulid a laptop), but is it actual work. Now that I have gotten a taste of doing actual work, I don't want to go back to having to kill time. I would rather coat my ass in honey and sit down on a seething pile of fire ants; I would rather swallow a towel; I would rather pound nails into my dick.

Another thing Mike hates: People that use the word `read` in place of `book`. Such as "Son of a Grifter was the most insanely fabulous read ever!" Book, the word is book. Thank you.

The scene: Last night, 8:20PM, Mike's bedroom. Mike, feeling ill from the burrito he ate earlier in the night, decides to lay down. Cut to his alarm clock, not ringing, but clearly displaying the time as 7AM. Cut back to Mike, groggy after 10.5 hours of sleep.
Damn, being late for work sucks.

Forever changing "I fuck like a chimp" to "I fuck like a toy dog", quoth Chris.

So, today is Tuesday, which means that it is cool to like anything cool in the indie rock world. Thus, I will add And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead to my list of music to hunt down and devour. It got a 10. A fucking 10. Pitchfork is usually full of shit, but a 10 is a commanding force.

New bands I need to find more music of: Mudvayne, Taproot, White Stripes and The Hives.

Well, Sony dropped the price of the Playstation 2 to $199. I still think that I got a great deal on my PS2: PS2, 4 (four) (yes, four) controllers, memory card, and 10 games (Including Tekken Tag Tournament, Gran Turismo 3, Armored Core 2, Midnight Run, Madden 2001, NHL 2001, and Fantavision) for a whopping $225. Beat that!

Strawberry jam is the best Jelly Belly flavor. Well, second to Sizzling Cinnamon.
