Whoa, big news, ladies and gentlemen. A while back I saw a rumor that Pink Floyd was reuniting to play for the upcoming Live 8 benefit concert. Like most Pink Floyd reunion rumors, I thought it was pure bunk. Especially when they said that Roger would be joining up too.
To my great surprise it turns out to be real. My pal Sean forward me a tip from CNN that seems to confirm it. The official Pink Floyd site also confirms it. Unfortunately none of the above links says where they’re going to be playing (Live 8 is spread across London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, and Philadelphia). A trip to Philly is a possibility, but budgetary constrains rule out the transcontinental stuff.
Keeping my fingers crossed that this is the beginning of something big, like a reunion tour (hey, KISS pull that off pretty well) or (gasp!) new music. I’m twitching in anticipation. Stay tuned!
Pulled in a nice 14.6 miler on Saturday morning. I overslept and started later than I wanted to; so, I just grabbed a 20oz plastic water bottle because I didn’t want to mess around with one of my camelbacks.
Worked out pretty well. No more annoying than a camelback, except a little cramping in my hand from holding it. Man, summer runs are gonna be tough, it was only around 70 when I got back I was already one big puddle when I got back. A couple of 32oz gatorade’s later, I was hydrated again…
Here’s a cool NYT article about the next generation of high performance running clothes. Wool is the next big thing. Unfortunately, with running shirts $50 or more and socks $13 a pair they’re both outside of my gear budget at the moment.
Geez, how much fun can you have with flash game that uses only 1 button? Check out Leo Steel to find out. Great way to kill a few minutes or hours. Good thing I didn’t find that at work.
Maybe you need more fans in your pc. How about a PC case made entirely of fans? Yes, all the fans actually spin. Geez, I can barely live with the noise from the 2 fans in my Dell. Hehe. Be sure to send this all your overclocker friends.
“Bless Me, Blog, for I’ve Sinned” is a cool article on NYT about online confessionals. One of the more interesting sites they referenced was PostSecret. Their hook is that you submit your confession anonymously via a postcard, which they scan and catalog. Geez, I could just sitting around all day reading their submissions. My current favorite is this one, pure class, of course!
