Any idiot can drive fast in a straight line

I might be selling my laptop soon. (Thanks, but I already have a buyer). Should I drop 2 large and get a new Dell? Even with the money I will get for the old laptop, that is still a paycheck and a half! Here are my requirements for a used laptop:

  • Pentium III (thus, 450MHz or better)
  • 256 megs of ram
  • 5 gig hard drive
  • 14" or larger LCD screen that supports at least 1024x768
  • DVD drive
  • 10/100 network port
  • A working battery!
  • All for under $750
If something like that shows up on eBay, I am all set. These guys just might have something I am looking for...

There just might be a chance for the rest of the West to catch up with the Wings, but don't hold your breath.

I just found them so they aren't going on the side bar just yet: Aversion (punk and indie news)and Faction Radio (post punk, indie, emo and punk internet radio).

Note to self: stop linking to Pitchfork. There is something about the singing of a soft, little girl voice that will transfix me on the spot. It is vaguely reminescent of, what seems to be, a previous life. I cannot explain what it does to me; I feel at peace. I can close my eyes and feel that I am floating through an opaque peach sky, weightless.

Saloon is doing this to me right now. Make it hurt.

Alright, Fark got me. The headline Crack found in 2 shuttles, NASA grounds the whole fleet had nothing to do with drugs.

God damnit, Hasek is retiring. We better pick up Cujo while Legace matures or the Wings aren't going for the cup next year.

One of the oldest questions in history is, "What came first, the chicken or the egg?" One of the oldest answers to that question was given by Aristotle, who stated that it was, in fact, the chicken. The philosopher postulated that while a chicken is an actual chicken, an egg is potential chicken. Since actuality always precedes potentiality, the chicken came first.
