just when i start to get into the sopranos, i find out that the fifth season will be the last! damn, that sucks. [link from august sky]

2001 august 28

i've been laying low the past few days. not too much to report, although i'm working at a client's office for the next few weeks - things may be quiet around these parts. wish i could get some comments going, but that will have to wait.

look who's stuffing the ballot box over at TRL? just another dirty record company. nothing too shocking, but still, i wonder about the teens who eat up that TRL crap.

after all the wait - oysterhead dates are up!

let's talk about HBO for a minute. we decided, after a few months in the new apartment, that is was time. time to make the move towards premium cable. specifically, we got HBO. no more staring blankly when talk of the sopranos started in the monday morning meeting. no more missing out on the hype surrounding six feet under.

however, when we flipped over to catch the last few minutes of the sex and the city finale, i was left speechless - more than once! i don't get this show. i don't think i am the type the show aims to please. but, really, what the hell was that episode trying to say about these supposedly strong women? ick, ick, ick. that is all i can say. and, shit, i haven't even mentioned the clothes. am i that different from the legions of people that fall over themselves for this show?! aw, shit, i know the answer to that question ;-)

things are happenning over at, including the finalized list of the six live discs coming out in september/october. also, word is that oysterhead tour info will be out by the end of next week!

given the success of that '70s show, it was bound to happen: the same creative team is close to finalizing a deal with Fox for a sitcom set in the '80s.

although i've never tried the green stuff, i can get down with the latest craze from Heinz: purple ketchup! [link from laura]

i am in so much pain today. clean up after the flood yesterday was extremely taxing on body & mind. luckily, i'm only dealing with a possible VCR death, but it was just horrible. my cab ribe home in the middle of the storm was something out of a movie...
