Meanwhile, on Twitter. . .

See them as they happen at Twitter.com/augiedb!

  • iTunes 2008 Best of Podcasts lists disgusts me. 90% of it is rewarmed radio and television shows. They’re afterthoughts, not podcasts.
  • @LordShaper – I love people who tell you how easy it is to start a 10,000 listener podcast. Yeah, start with a 20,000 listener podcast.
  • Being home during the day is SO DAMNED COOL. Why must I go back to work tomorrow? Baby is so cute, too. She’s being an angel.
  • No, seriously, the girl and I (and her mother) had a very lovely day today. Tomorrow, it’s back to work and Suck Van Suck Suck life crap.
  • Pipeline #600. That’s right. 600 straight non-stop weeks of doing this thing. http://tinyurl.com/5amlot (I don’t normally mention comics on this blog, but it’s Column #600.  That deserves a mention. And if I don’t mention it, nobody else will.)
  • The Dark Knight Special Edition 2 DVD set sold out at my local BJ’s Warehouse by 6:00. And I had a coupon. So sad.
  • Oh. Boston Legal ended last night? Sad. I used to watch TV. . .
  • Those YouTube search bars across the tops of their videos is driving me nuts. I’m so shallow..
  • Why is Photoshop so expensive? Because it takes an awful lot of programmers and research to do the things it does. Coding ain’t cheap.
  • @OttoBott – From strictly an economic standpoint, I think Adobe might make MORE money if they lowered the price. Make it up in volume.
  • Whoever that was who used my Amazon Associates link to order themselves a new Canon XSI: Thank-you!
  • Canon 5DII vid from a “normal” user. Wowzers: http://tinyurl.com/6q5a3l  (I think the 5d Mark II is my dream camera, along with a nifty $1500 70-200mm f/2.8L lens.)
  • I almost wanted to donate to PBS today just to score the 12 DVD set of Victor Borge videos. If they sell that through Amazon, I’m in! (Lotsa Borge links in VandS here.)
  • Wait. The first set of 6 DVDs IS! Or, at least, you can pre-order it now. Very very happy: http://tinyurl.com/6cws9x  
  • Yay, I just got my $5 credit to the Amazon MP3 store. If only I liked any music these days. . .

  1. What bugs me about the iPod list – is that it only seems to be viewable if you’re part of the itunes cult that downloads the damn software. I think Smodcast is included, which is a fun show – but hardly one of the best things on the net. It also probably missed gems like John Siuntres’ great comic interview podcast at Wordballoon.com and keith & the Girl’s long running podcast at katg.com/

    Music recommendations? In his latest missive Warren Ellis recommended the new PARTS AND LABOR album “Receivers” – which is pretty good psychedelic pop I think. My recommendation is either RAPHAEL SAADIQ’s “The Way I See It” – which comes off almost as a LOST Motown album — or the BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB Live at Carnegie Hall cd – which is amazing. Or if you want bizarre – try Rufus Wainright’s Live at Carnegie Hall cd which is a 2cd set where he redoes the famous Judy Garland Live at Carnegie Hall set in all his pomp and glory.

    The pull of home gets pretty strong once that baby’s in the house, doesn’t it?
