iPhone, Fashion

| August 28, 2008

It’s interesting to see what people think of for iPhone apps. Hmm, double preposition “of for.” Is that legal? http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/28/fashion/28ROW.html?_r=1&ref=fashion&oref=slogin Somehow I got from there, to Giorgio Armani’s wiki, but I’m not sure how.

Thanks Eric. http://www.tampabay.com/features/humaninterest/article750838.ece Her caseworker determined that she had never been to school, never seen a doctor. She didn’t know how to hold a doll, didn’t understand peek-a-boo. “Due to the severe neglect,” a doctor would write, [...]

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

| August 23, 2008

I’m late to the party, but I finally got around to watching it. It’s low-budget awesomeness. http://www.hulu.com/watch/28343/dr-horribles-sing-along-blog Three acts comprise one episode. Why does Joss Whedon own so much? Neil Patrick Harris was pretty good, too.
