  • Speaking of movies, are there any Netflix users out there who'd like to be one of our special Netflix Friends? You may not reach the current 81% level of compatibility that we have with our friends David & Chelsea, but it's still interesting to see what people we know have been watching and enjoying.

  • Long-time friend and local historian (and, until recently, Orange County Archivist) Phil Brigandi has a new blog called Notes From a Lost Valley, about the history of Lost Valley, home to the Boy Scout camp where we both worked. His most recent entry mentions me at the end — I'm a part of history!

  • We were in Philadelphia this past week, which gave us a chance to see the circus of the Pennsylvania primary up close and personal. (This was the first time that I saw a commercial for either Clinton or Obama on TV!) While I think that Obama did pretty well (considering that he was down by over twenty percent just a few months before), he could have chopped a few more points off of Hillary's margin if it weren't for this guy driving around downtown:

    Yes, it's a Prius with Obama signs taped to the sides and two loudspeakers on top, blasting the music from the "Yes, We Can" video loud enough to be almost completely distorted and unintelligible. Way to play to a stereotype, dude. This is why I don't have any bumper stickers on my own Prius; between our living in Orange County, the car, and the Berkeley license plate frame, anyone who wasn't already on my side would just say "eh".

IF you did this to your Prius in The OC -- it would be vandalized by die-hard Republicans with cans of Krylon.

We are only a 68% match. Don't worry, I'm sure your taste will improve with age. :]
