Last post of the night, promise

Last post of the night, promise:
I would be remiss if I didn’t note that tonight was opening night of an
off-Broadway play written by a longtime friend of mine (and a few other
readers of this weblog).

A long time ago in a far-away place (hint),
Garth Wingfield, a college student with a glob toilet paper stuck to
his neck following a shaving incident, came into my office seeking an
internship as a copywriter. I didn’t tell him about the toilet paper
but I hired him on the spot as I’d already read the impressive work
he’d earlier provided me. (And I knew he would see the toilet paper
soon enough.) I have some funny stories about working with him over the
next couple of years, but they are more funny about me, than about him,
so I’ll skip them until later.

Fast forward to tonight. Garth’s play, Flight, the rise and fall of Charles Lindbergh, opened at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. It’s scheduled to play through June 19 and you can purchase tickets online here.

I’ll get there before it closes.

Speaking of records

Speaking of records: Because of all those BlogNashville follow up posts and all the other posts that surely are causing people to flush me off their newsreaders, this has got to be a rexblog record for most posts in one day. I know no one will believe me when I say I’ve also been drafting a major new business presentation at the same time. Or maybe blogging about Renee Zellweger has been what has kept my sanity intact while completing it.

Ho-de-do

Ho-de-do: Northwest Noise podcaster Tim Germer (known around here as the first podcaster to ever mention the rexblog) is ‘pre-beta-ing’ Odeo. No, wait. He’s not, as he can’t really test it because, well, the syncing part doesn’t work with a Mac.

Podcasting without syncing would be a little hard to test. (update: see comments)

By the way, Tim (on his other blog) thinks Apple has a liability issue on its hands with security issues surrounding the Tiger dashboard.

Which
reminds me, I installed Tiger but don’t want to waste my time talking
about anything good about products made by companies which display evil
characteristics. So here are the bad things: It messed up my mail –
royally. Dashboard widgets remind me of that goofy Microsoft Bob thing.
Searchlight is cool but is not as good as Quicksilver. As I find more
flaws, I will pass them along. (However, if I weren’t going through my
anti-apple period, I would have some really swell stuff to talk about,
however.)
