I think I’d like to waste some time trying to help you all waste time. So here are some tidbits that have been hovering around me today.

First: I motioned a while ago how the RIAA was complaining because a defendant in a file swapping case demanded that a neutral third party pull the data off her hard drive instead of a party chosen by Sony and the RIAA themselves. Well, the judge does not agree and he tells them so oh oh ooooh. Take that you RIAA babies!

Next up: It’s The Google!

Then: Wanna know why the current Congress is considered by some to be the worst in history? Then read “The Worst Congress Ever: How Our National Legislature has Become a Stable of Thieves and Perverts—in Five Easy Steps” in Rolling Stone. Yes, Rolling Stone! If politics trumps music in a music magazine, you know our government sucks. I haven’t finished reading the story yet, but I found out about it because the author was on Democracy Now this morning. Read the transcript, if you desire.

Meanwhile: Wired has a fun bit about Hemingway’s six-word short story and how it led them to commission new six-word stories from other writers. I dig Alan Moore’s! These are kind of like sudden or flash fiction, but shorter.

Finally: I re-visited a site I had scribbled down on a Post-It some time ago, and remembered why I had done that. It’s the site of Kazu Kibuishi, whose art I love. It was mostly Copper that drew my eye. Wow, I wish I could draw that well! (The first Copper comic, “R. Pack Fantasy,” is at the bottom of the page, and the newer one go backward from there.)
