Mixed Bag Special

Look carefully before you decide to close this window after it opens. Thanks, Sharon.

I am friggin’ tired tonight.

I didn’t know that “yo la tengo” means “I have it” in Spanish. I did know that “husker du” means “do you remember” in Norwegian and/or Danish.

Blogging is moving into the mainstream very quickly. Now, Harvard has hired Dave Winer to head up its new Weblogs at Harvard Initiative. So the question is begged: if blogging has made it to Harvard, have blogs moved into the mainstream? If so, I’m wondering what comes next, in whatever embryonic stage it might be at this time. Will blogs become pass? I don’t think so, at least not for a while. I think blogs will continue to evolve and mutate and morph into other formats. Time will tell.

Norah Jones and Christopher Cross? Will she suffer his fate? I doubt it.

Napster, seemingly forgotten these days, is set to return later this year.

    My dear Randy, bloggin became mainstream a long time ago. Somewhere between it being on CNN as a story and Al Rokker getting a blog.

    I read somewhere that “yo la tengo” (i got it)is used in baseball, so that the basemen or outfielders will know exactly who is going for a high ball.

    I didnt know about the husker du bit though. 🙂

    Generally, it’s the starting pitchers who sit around drinking high balls between starts. The others have a beer or two.

    And, dude, Norah Jones is much better looking than Christopher Cross — and even “Sailing” sucked.

    Napster will never rise out of the ashes. “Zeds dead baby, Zed’s dead.” I predict a short-lived and rather pathetic showing because free just cannot compete with for fee, and there are too many other options available.
