'We're going to have to leave it there'

Loved this segment on "The Daily Show" last night...

Blogger help needed

I've made a lot of alterations to my Blogger template over the years, but there is one that has always eluded me.

Does anyone out there have any clue how I can move the "Newer Posts - Home - Older Posts" links from the bottom of post pages to the top? Any enlightenment you can share would be GREATLY appreciated!

UPDATE: Big thanks to Vin "The Blog Doctor" who spotted my tweet on the subject and pointed me to the tip I needed. It was quick and easy to pull off!

Tape deck flashback

I fished out an old mix tape and popped it into the tape deck while driving home from work tonight. I made it in 1995. Here's what was on it:

  • Blues Traveler: "Run-Around"
  • Spin Doctors: "Jimmy Olsen's Blues"
  • Sophie B. Hawkins: "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover"
  • Counting Crows: "Mr. Jones"
  • Hootie and the Blowfish: "Drowning"
  • 10,000 Maniacs: "These Are Days"
  • R.E.M.: "Man on the Moon"
  • Genesis: "Driving the Last Spike"
  • Jan Hammer: "Too Far"
That was side A. Side B had Queen's Greatest Hits.

That damn Rally Monkey

So the Yankees will face the Angels in the ALCS. I spotted SportsCenter promo on ESPN that I hope will prove prophetic for the series...

UPDATE: Nate Darling informs me on Facebook that this promo is two years old. I just saw for the first time today. I guess I'm not watching enough ESPN.

New look for 'Who'

When "Doctor Who" begins it's next regular season in 2010, there will be a new Doctor, a new companion, a new creative team behind the scenes -- and a new show logo.

The BBC unveiled the artwork this morning.

With the new logo, it's probably safe to assume there will be a whole new opening title sequence with a another new arrangement of the classic theme song (the current version of which is the ringtone on my phone -- yes, I know I'm a giant geek).

In the meantime, there are three more episodes to go for the current iteration of "Doctor Who." The next is due sometime next month with the final two set for Christmas Day and New Years Day.
