    Odds of regretting this tattoo at some point?

    Earth Crisis was a band. A very very bad band.

    TV shows you wish would die

    All the shows that star a so-called "expert" who's lacking in any real credentials yet still claims to help people (and usually just ends up giving bad advice)...Dog Whisperer, Dr. Phil, that guy who claims to talk to dead relatives. South Park needs to die. At one point in time it was...

    Grip for ripping although I have been experimenting with rubyripper. I use mpd/sonata for playback.

    Just got my iPod shuffle....

    Wouldn't the buttons on the iPod Shuffle Pro defeat the purpose of having a shuffle? But the screen would be very nice - I'd like to be able to see the song info of what is currently playing.

    How do you guys find new music?

    I've bought lots of cds recently after using the listening stations at a local record store (Sonic Boom). Otherwise I go off the recommendations of my friends, most of whom are musicians, or from reviews in magazines like Wire.

    Scariest movie ever

    When I was in middle school, the Nightmare on Elm Street movies scared the crap out of me, but I couldn't stop watching them. Nothing really scares me anymore. At best it creeps me out a little (like The Ring), but Texas Chainsaw Masacre (the original) came pretty close.

    I used to have a septum ring (6ga) and plugs in my lobes (.75" diameter) for a number of years but I took them out because I like being able to choose when I look like a freak and when I don't. At least with my tattoos they are all hidden when I put on a long-sleeve shirt. Oh, and after you go...

    Can i do linux on a powerbook?

    Yes it's possible. Check out Yellow Dog Linux. Although I've heard about small problems (like power management) but that is true of most notebooks.

    Post your desktop!

    Oh and I have to say that the digital clock (Konfabulator), GokieKS has in their screenshot is the prettiest desktop clock I've ever seen. Man I wish Linux had something as equally nice (gdesklets is not bad, but not nearly as good).

    So is NPR hipper than I previously thought?

    I was just listening to NPR and they started playing The Shy Retirer by Arab Strap. Not exactly chart-toppers they are. And I've heard Marketline (I think that's the name - their money/economics show) play the opening riff to the first song off Fugazi's I'm On The Kill Taker (I don't remember...
