Steve Vai, For the Love of God, with the Holland Metropole Orchestra.  Closeups of his fingering.  Good God.  Impressive enough on the album, you have to see it to believe it.

Getting into space by broomstick. Not the broomstick from Clarke’s “2010”, but still a cool concept.

NY Times Media & Advertising:

Prominent Magazines Lose Weight, Shedding Nearly Half Their Ads.  Magazines that offer valuable content never need fear loss of sales, at least from me.  Those that are purely frameworks for ads ... well, if they die off, our landfills will be all the better.  And there’ll be more room for comfy chairs in libraries and bookstores.

Boston Globe:

Twilight of the color photo.  “Today, you get some glossies sent out as holiday cards, and some lucky ones get matted and framed, but the vast majority of color photographs now taken - and there are countless millions of them - pass before us, just briefly, on a screen.”  Guilty as charged.

Time to kill Blogtree, I think.

An underwear-sales SEO-bait weblog has listed my weblog as ‘blogparent.’  First I’ve heard out of BlogTree in years.

If you’re wondering why you might not be hearing from some folks in NM,

the Qwest/SkyWi dustup could be the reason. The PRC’s on it, because the outage is endangering essential community services ... but TV news was saying it may take a week to get things cleared up.

Happy New Year, folks!

Here’s hoping 2009 ends up being much brighter than the current predictions indicate.  Thanks for reading here over the last year (or more).  I’ll leave 2008 with this link: a history of Auld Lang Syne.  Here’s to breathing new life into the dry bones of our country.

“Hundreds of Neapolitan women have pledged to go without sex unless their men promise to refrain from setting off dangerous illegal fireworks.”  Bang ≠ bang.

What you get for $150,000.  This is a whole lot more interesting than, say, a mill.  In Santa Fe, you’d likely get an original old adobe, falling apart, patched with car parts and featuring a welded coffee-can septic system.

For Kennedy, Self-Promotion Is Unfamiliar.  You know, it does seem like she’s not ready.  The McCain choice of Palin put the spotlight on experience, you know, and Obama’s erudition put an emphasis on off-the-cuff wordsmithing. 

If she’s serious, she should use this as a learning experience for future political endeavors.  There has to be substance in addition to the name.
