KEXP 90.3 FM - where the music matters: KEXP just played Hot Snakes. Hot Snakes, on the radio. Mmmm, if it wasn't for the fact that they play such a random playlist, I would love this station.

It's just too random, meaning there are a few songs I love mixed in with a bunch of stuff I've never heard. I rarely like a song on one listen, so I rarely find anything new to like.

AutoWeek - Car News: Woohoo, even more Evo goodness! This new model has just a few changes, but they are all improvements and the base price isn't dramatically increased ($32k for the highest-priced model). The new color is dark gray, which is going to be the new hot color. I'm sick of silver and its variants.

It seems that spammers are using a random dictionary attempt at creating "from" names. I just received an email from "Topsoil H. Motherfucker". Now do spammers really think I'm going to open a mail from Mr. Motherfucker?

Wired 12.03: The Complete Guide to Googlemania!: My first thought, 13 pages all about Google! This is great, mostly because Google is an interesting company to follow from a technological, political, economic and social aspect. Second thought, crap, 13 pages I have to slog through with a bunch of drivel added since this is Wired. Well, I read the whole thing, and it's at least worth a good skim. I didn't learn much, but that's okay.
