Pondering the Imponderable

Ye gads, what a month. I can't remember ever having a month like this, especially not at the end of summer. Thankfully, if I can just survive until Sunday afternoon, I'll be all set. Then things will hopefully get back to normal, whatever that might be.

When I can grab a spare second, I've been trying out the Jedi Academy demo. I'm really enjoying it, especially with the two-handed saber. The new moves are very deadly if performed correctly. I really don't find a lot of use for dual sabers, which is a pity. It looks awfully cool. I like how you can deactivate one blade of the two-handed saber to use it like a normal single saber or even throw it. I'll be picking this one up with the first sale . . .

And finally, Slashdot got word that Berkeley Breathed (the cartoonist behind Bloom County) is returning with a new Sunday-only cartoon starring everyone's favorite penguin, Opus. I'll have to bust out one of my Bloom County books for old times' sake.

NFL Week #1 Final

I've always said that a week that finds both Eeyore and me in double digits is a good week. I ended up 12-4 while she was 10-6. On top of it all, my Fightin' Wombats eeked out a fantasy win. A good time was had by all.

Warren Zevon, Dead at 56

In an age of mass-produced prepackaged pop icons, Warren Zevon is a breath of fresh air. Yesterday, he lost his battle with lung cancer. He outlived the doctors' estimates by almost a year. I'll fire up some Zevon tunes in his memory. Lawyers, Guns, and Money sounds good right now or, perhaps more appropriately, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead. I'm going to have to check out this album he's been recording over the past half year.
