Code Monkey

I’ve known about Jonathan Coulton for quite a long time. I remember I heard the songs Ikea and Mandelbrot Set on an indiefeed podcast over 2 years ago. Podcasting was just getting big and I got into the whole scene for a while. I never really contributed anything (not that I ever do) but it helped me find lots of indie artists to listen to.

Over the last 2 years I played Ikea for a few friends who found it quite humorous. I never forgot about Jonathan but I figured he had given up the whole music bit. How wrong I was. He did a little thing called Song a Week where he made a new song every week and put it up for free on his site. He made some really great songs like Re: Your Brains, The Presidents, and, my favorite, Code Monkey. He is clever, geeky, and all-around awesome so I suggest you check him out.

I saw Live Free or Die Hard last night and it was awesome. It was a really great action movie and I kinda wish I could see it again. There were so many good lines. Maybe I will see it again if some other friends want to see it.

I want an iPhone. Sure its expensive and probably a waste to get it on launch day but I really want one. I’ll be outside an AT&T store after work on Friday waiting in line to get an 8 GB iPhone. I’ll let you know if I manage to get one.


Wow, April was a while ago.

It’s 3 AM so I have to keep this short. I’ve recently been inspired by some bloggers who blog and talk about each other and write stuff all the time. I never thought I could do it. They seem to find the time, however, and since all I’m doing this summer is working I figure I might give it another shot (as I always do).

Tonight I saw Live Free or Die Hard. It was an amazing movie with explosions, hacking, and lots of John McClane. I would have to order the films 1, 4, 3, 2. Its damn near impossible to beat the original (since all subsequent films are compared to the original based on its original merits) but this movie comes really close. In fact, if I was not nostalgic about the original I might put Live Free or Die Hard at the top of my list. It is my favorite movie so far this summer.

I’m sure I’ll talk about this in more detail after some sleep. Work in the morning dictates that I get an adequate amount of sleep prior to waking up at 8 AM. Usually that’s 8 hours or so, but I’ll let it slide on account of the fact that the movie was VERY much worth seeing. Goodnight, and yippee-ki-yay mother f—er!
