Man, faxing stuff at Kinko’s is expensive. I had to send five pages long distance and they charged me $7.07. Ridiculous, no? What a racket.

A couple neat links:

Ballad of Gordon – Awesome Barenaked Ladies video that was on FOX Kids back in the mid 90s. I remember watching this on TV… fantastic song.

Awesometown – The pilot episode for a series that was submitted to (and rejected by) FOX. Jones told me about this a couple months ago, but I didn’t get around to watching it till I happened to spot one of the creators’ other videos on YouTube yesterday. I really liked first half of the pilot, but the last 10 minutes wasn’t as good.

Two of the Lonely Island guys (the creators of Awesometown) have weird names — Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. The more I think about it, the more I like the name Akiva. Kind of scandinavian-sounding, right? Turns out it’s actually Hebrew though. Apparently it means “heel,” “protect,” or “replaces.” Jorma, OTOH, is the Finnish version of Jeremiah.

I have to go back to the Tri-Cities tomorrow morning. There’s a few movies I want to see, but I think the theaters there will probably only have one of them: Let’s Go to Prison, For Your Consideration, and This Film Not Yet Rated.

Jones grew a beard! Well, apparently he’s already shaved it off. But he looked way different when he had it. Actually, he bore a striking resemblance to my Networking Essentials 1 teacher, Don Humphrey. Very strange.

Welp, I’m gonna watch some My Name is Earl, then go play Magic at GameALot.
