Get in on it.

1. So yeah, the news about Arrested Development's imminent demise has got me bummed out. But, as troubadour76 pointed out, this is not the first time that AD has been threatened with cancellation, and we're already into Season 3. But still. In the words of wienerschnitzel: "Looks like most Americans these days need a good dose of analrapy."

2. I neglected to mention that my work situation is about to receive an upgrade - I will finally have some real work to do, starting next week, as I move to a new floor and start working with 2 new people. It's a quasi-permanent position; I'm filling in for someone who's taking an extended medical leave, but from what I understand the person, if they return, will NOT be coming back to this particular desk, so it's as good as mine. I'll have more of a comment on this when I'm actually there, doing something. Good: no more days of nothing to do. Bad: less time for iPod wars.

3. Playoff baseball! Reading all the series profiles, I tend to agree with the general consensus, which is that there is no clear favorite in either league. Here's my prediction for the Yankees/Angels series: the Yankees will advance IF AND ONLY IF they manage to win Game 1, which is tonight. Which Mussina will show up? If we get the good version, and he manages to go at least 6+, I think we have a great shot. However, there's a distinct possibility that he will get beaten about the face and neck, and if that's the case the series is all but over.

4. My copy of the new Broken Social Scene album was supposed to arrive today; it has not. I ordered it from because they were offering a special bonus CD with it, but does not feature any package tracking, even though they say they do. Many of you are saying the new Wolf Parade album is awesome - I may end up picking it up, but first I must get my BSS fix.

5. Nerd news: Peter Jackson is producing the upcoming Halo movie! Also, my life is about to get incredibly expensive. Arrested Development Season 2 comes out next week, and there are a SHITLOAD of games coming out between last week and the next month or so, which will make my Xbox360/HDTV purchase that much more difficult to rationalize.

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
