Today’s Music: J. Roddy Walston and the Business – Heavy Bells
Round and round! WHEEEEE! IT’S FRIDAY AGAIN!!! I TOOK IN TWO CONCERTS AND SLEPT TOO LITTLE THIS WEEK!
But you could probably tell that last part. So if there were only two concerts, how did I spend the rest of the time I should have been sleeping? Why, reading blogs of course! Here’s some of what I saw.
Scarp went shopping. Live Clay opened the Tooth Fairy’s luggage, and Quirky had a baby!!!
Wow! Thanks to them and all of you for the great eye candy this week.
(Yes, some of these are from a couple of weeks ago, but still, I still wanted to mention them.)
Besides concerts, one of the things that kept me up this week was last weeks poll. We asked what the next technology should be. And boy, were you all forward thinking. Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments beep and whirr in italics.)

Congratulations to Red for this weeks winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most popular was Whatever it is, it will mostly be used for porn.. So it looks like the future will bring confusion. And sex.
Funny how those two often travel together…
Well, you know what comes next. This is the part where I ask an incredibly stupid question. But this time, that’s not going to happen. This time I’m just going to write the answers. You get to write the question!
Pick as many answers as you like. But “Other” answers should be the question that these are in some vague way related to. And if you leave a write-in, leave some ID too so I can link back to you next week. Oh, and do all that by 2359 EDT on 2 October, because that’s when this one ends.
And to send you on your way while I catch a much needed nap at my desk…
Yes, it’s a car commercial. But it’s still funny.
And since I seem to be all technology-future this week, let’s finish off here.
Thanks for coming around, and I’ll see you…well, some time next week, I guess…
Have a great weekend!
