Ugh, this day hasn't been so great. Nothing horrible, but I'm (as usual) stuck on a problem at work. Hopefully these links will cheer me up!

I've spent some time this week looking at the exploits of Improv Everywhere. Wow, these people really make me want to live in New York! Some of their more entertaining missions: Best Buy (80 people enter a Best Buy store dressed in blue polo shirts), Surprise! (surprise birthday party on the subway), The Moebius (repeating time loop in a Starbucks), Look Up More (a bunch of silhouettes dancing in the windows of a building), Even Better Than The Real Thing (impersonating a U2 concert on a rooftop), The Dollar Dudes (handing out dollar bills on the subway), Best Gig Ever (massively attending the gig of an unknown band, and the band's response), and Ted's Birthday (pretending to know a stranger and throwing him a birthday party). Wow!

Sesame Street Video Clips! (from kottke). There are videos for a lot of songs on Songs from the Street, like "Furry Happy Monsters". Also an awesome Celebrity ABC song - Ray Charles plays piano, and Patrick Stewart really nails "T-U-V"! Born To Add is good too.

Apparently people are using laptops to steal cars with keyless entry and ignition systems. Um, great.

They're going to be selling the original unaltered Star Wars DVDs for a limited time! (from waxy)

I come across Damn Interesting every once and again - there are some cool articles there, like America's secret plan to invade Canada (and their secret plan to invade us!), and the creepy story of Centralia, PA (which was the basis for the movie Silent Hill. Their article on the parasite Toxoplasma gondii was the first article I read there, I think (and I may have linked it before...)

OK, I'm all linked out. Have a good weekend all!

Hanging out here at the ranch - my mom's in town for a conference and she's staying with me. We went places looking for a LaTeX book and the new Timesplitters game for me (got game (David will be excited!), but no book), and a confirmation card for Carrie, which are apparently very very rare or something. Anyway, hopefully I'll get a reasonable amount of sleep _and_ sleep well tonight, which would be the first time in a while. And then all my problems at work will clear up...and the world will live in harmony...

My hard drive unceremoniously died at work yesterday (the "repetitive whir of death", or something), so the last few days have been a mad rush to get stuff off of it. Luckily, I was able to get the important things off, so nothing was really lost except my time. Anyway, between this and the TiVo hard drive that died, don't let me near your data!
