Friday Night Time Killing

Another Unapologetic, Scattered, Meaningless Blog Post - For Your Reading Pleasure.

@Tankboy made a musical recommendation this evening and I am quite pleased. I am currently listening to Naked & Famous – Passive Me, Aggressive You, as I sit outside, in the sidewalk cafe of a closed Starbucks typing this.  I was immediately taken by the title of the album and because @Tankboy said something about my “Inner 80s electronica…” and really, is there anything other than my inner 80s electronica?  No.  What’s even funnier is the song, “Punching and Dreaming” that actually happened to me once.

#NerdBar – it’s been a long dream of mine. A bar where we just stay up all night drinking wine and dicking around on our computers.  We don’t talk to one another and no music plays because we all have our headphones on.  We still tweet, IM and email with one another – like all perfectly normal people do. is the easiest URL to drive traffic to. Catchy URLs win all day long.  I just leave a blog comment (almost anywhere) and boom, 100 hits that day.  I’m just too lazy to leave blog comments.  Well, not lazy, I just don’t really care, or have a reason to. Or, I’m too busy doing other things like writing this blog post.

I’m messing around in my Google analytics and what do I see? In-page analytics. Kinda cool for a minute but I see it mostly as a gimmick. I know where you’re clicking by looking at the numbers, I don’t need pictures, I am not 8 and this isn’t color by numbers. 

Oh, I guess I still need to check out this Lion thing they all keep talking about.  This OS X Lion For the Mac..  Perhaps @dupreeblue can tell me what it is?

iTunes, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store

My musical taste is random. – and I will be the first to admit, not always good random. I mean, I am a Toby Keith fan and I am listening to "Young Blood" by Naked and Famous". I’m looking at my "Genius” area in iTunes (because I am mostly procrastinating) and I see: “Tanto Tempo” by Bebel Gilberto, “Cry for You” by September, “I Predict a Riot” Kaiser Chiefs, “Paper Planes” by M.I.A., “Gold Digger” by Kanye, “That’s Entertainment” by The Jam, “Time to Pretend” by MGMT and “Wake Up” by Arcade Fire.  I don’t have a Toby Keith genius.  – ha ha, I just said “Toby Keith” and “genius” in the same sentence.  

My, everyone that walks out of Ditka’s is really fat and driving a big car. I never really noticed before, but then again, I don’t always sit outside Ditka’s for two hours.

OK, for realz tho, I need to send an email to all those who are attending the social media scavenger hunt breakfast tomorrow morning.  Guten nacht – as my dad would say. (Before I get all my stuff jacked out here by those teen flash mobs).

Lion is the new OS for your mac. I can't tell you about it yet because I haven't downloaded it. I'm probably waiting until there's an update so that the first round of bugs are fixed. I'd recommend you do the same. Then I'll tell you all about it.
