stuck at work links

This is a 70 minute video review of "The Phantom Menace" (some NSFW language). The voice is a little weird, and there are some weird offtopic bits, but overall it's entertaining and pretty spot-on. The bit at the end of Part 1 where he asks people to describe the characters in the original trilogy vs. the prequel is pretty awesome.
'Tis the season for cable company disputes. Here's Time Warner's take on the issue versus Fox's. I find it amusing that they think that setting up websites is going to lead to consumers reading both of them, weighing the facts, and deciding who to be mad at or something. Hint: I get my cable through Time Warner, and if all of a sudden I can't see shows on Fox, I'm going to be mad at Time Warner, regardless of whose "fault" it is. I better be able to watch Lost in February!
The health care bill in the Senate passed a critical test early this morning and it looks like it's going to pass on Christmas Eve. Now to the conference committee!
Heading out to Houston tonight. Happy Christmas!

We're here through Wednesday, so give us a call if you have spare time and would like to get together! :) (I'll certainly understand if you don't, though -- my family visits to Austin are often whirlwind-ish.)
Comment from gregstoll:
Cool! We'll probably be pretty busy, but we'll give y'all a call if we have some time :-)
Have fun in England!
Comment from abstractseaweed:
Judging based on the aesthetics of the competing websites, without actually investigating the issues, I vote that Time Warner's website is prettier. Fox has too much flashing, distracting, and moving stuff, and way too many links.
