From the internet video invasion, we have Mr. and Mrs. Bender exploring the new field of straightness, and from A Liam Show we have a teenager getting what she wants. Both set to techno and both addicting views.

I feel bad for these guys, but it's also terribly absurd that anyone would go to such lengths just for 10 minutes of TV

For states, I counted anywhere I've touched down in an airport or rode through on a train. I can't say I did anything in Delaware, for example, except sat on a train going to New York.

Using the motion sensor in a Macbook, Erling Ellingsen has worked it so that his desktop manager switches desktops when he taps his laptop screen, like a little shove. So fun!

Someone pointed out Erdõs-Bacon numbers to me today. My first thought was, "Who the hell thinks this stuff up?" The second thing I thought was, "Hey, what about that Winnie chick from Wonder Years? I wonder what her number is."

Silvia Night, a character from an Icelandic comedy television program, entered the Eurovision Song Contest and totally fucked with it. Nice. See videos of her performance and a Greek news segment on her involvement.

Looking over the latest WordPress themes, here's the ones I really dig:

Fun article from the SF Gate on real-life ghost hunters and a weekend conference held in Mendocino, in two parts. Sounds fun, actually, and I say this as someone who doesn't believe in ghosts. (I'm sure they're running into something, I just don't know what.) Lots of fun moments from the weekend:

After the lights come on, Sarah Disparti looks at what her camera captured and is wildly excited about a few images of brightly colored lights in the darkness. The group quickly hooks up the computer they travel with, and when the images are downloaded and displayed, there is disappointment in the first few.

"What do you think this is?" asks Young to the excited teen.

"A ghost?" she asks eagerly.

"No, honey — it's a reflection of your flash."

But at the last image — bursts of light in purple, pink and white — there is a resounding "ahhh!" Even the pragmatic Young is impressed. This is the mother lode for ghost hunters.

Dee Disparti hugs her daughter. "My little medium," she smiles.

One of the organizations mentioned in the article, Ghost Trackers, based in Santa Clara, has a radio show and a podcast. I think I'm going to have to finally sit down and set up something to grab some feeds…

"In 2004-2006, Arial enjoyed a revival and people figured out a way to make it look halfway decent."

Four Second Fury is all about the minigames. Surprisingly fun even if it encourages ADD.
