First, a moment of silence for the VHS, which died earlier this month. At least, that's what some people say. Vinyl is making a resurgence in the music market, so who knows what might happen in the future?

On to perkier news. Motorhead is sponsoring a kids' soccer team! How awesome is that?

Also, the winners of the "Encyclopedia Brown for District Attorney" contest have been announced. I always suspected that Count Olaf was a Republican...

Remember the Spirograph? Now it's available in pen form. Weird.

If you're casting about for new stuff to read, I agree with the NY Observer's recommendation of Philip Kerr. It's not happy fluffy material, but it's good and layered and damn interesting.

>> Remember the Spirograph?

Mang, do I ever. I still think about Spirograph on a disturbingly frequent basis, and every time I do, I wish I hadn't lost track of mine. Do they still make them?

The pen, on the other hand, seems more like when my 'rents were going through their obsession with mandating electric teeth brushing.

Which makes me wish I could go back in time for another reason, this time to say, "whatever."
