Wedding day

Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable, western spiral-arm of the Galaxy...

MP3s of the Month are up. Actually, they've been up since the first but I neglected to mention them until today. Five of them this time in anticipation of the upcoming Hitchhiker's Guide movie. Four have been taken from the ambitiously unfinished Us (Not Them Productions) recording of the radio series. I've linked directly to the files, but you'll get a better description from my website.
  • Lady Cynthia Fitzmelton: Part of the original radio series which was cut from subsequent versions of the story.


  • Vogon Poetry: The third worst poetry in the Universe, preceeded by a warning and a near-inaudible reading of the very worst poetry ever composed.


  • Infinite Improbability Drive: The science of lynchings, undergarments, and really hot tea.


  • Introduction to Fit the Third: The intro to the third episode of the series in which we learn about the planet Magrathea and its debilitating effect on the Galactic economy. Features a cameo by Meg Ryan.


  • Journey of the Sorcerer: My arrangement of the Eagles song chosen by Douglas Adams to bookend each episode of the radio series. I've always wanted to do my own version, and I doubt that it will appear in the movie.

Wedding day

Anybody looking for a roommate?

I've just been informed that when our lease expires in August, I'll have to find a new place on my own as Nate and Sean are looking for another house with our friend Lance. Three-bedroom rentals are difficult enough to find, let alone four-bedrooms, and they're not exactly looking in an area I'd like to live, so I'm gonna have to find other arrangements. I may end up leaving Madison (not the area, just Madison) because I can't maintain my standard of living here on my own. I'm not too happy about it, but we all want to get away from downtown, and this is a better choice for Nate and Sean.

Maybe it's karma. I wrote something earlier today which I didn't actually post about something that happened at work. Remember that woman who always sends out the most asinine forwarded messages? Well she sent two today. The first one was the usual "send this to five people and the fairy at the top of this e-mail will give you a high-five" (I'm paraphrasing, but I didn't make that up).

The second e-mail comes after not having even seen her since last year, and was sent to me and two other guys I work with asking for help moving from the West side of Madison to Janesville. One of the guys always deletes her stuff without reading it, so he didn't know about it until I pointed it out. The other guy said he was just going to pretend he didn't receive it. I'd like to do that -- I really would -- but the AEG is trying to guilt trip me into helping, and it might be working.

I'm not real happy about that either.
