  1. Of course, the religious overtones in Card's writings stem from his devout Mormon faith; he is a direct descendant of Brigham Young. I quite like Ender's Game, and, and I know everyone here will think this dumb or bizarre, but his "Learning How To Program Computer Games" series of articles in the old Ahoy! Magazine (for Commodore VIC20/64) was brilliant.

  2. My big dislike of cassettes was not the tape hiss, but rather the tape getting chewed, or broken, or just deciding it wanted to stick together, and the tape not running at proper speed because of resistance...

    I think I'll stick with LPs and CDs.

  3. If anyone wants to take a couple Michael Knott/LSU CDs off my hands, they're yours for the asking... I'll have to go double-check which they are, but Knott is *very* hit-or-miss for me.

    But I'm curious as to the Humb album; it looks like a couple of those 'new' tracks were on the Antarctica disc that Brainstorm put out after the Prayer Chain was no more...

  4. I do like Luxury. No, they aren't still together, if I recall correctly; I think Health and Sport was their kind of send-off as a band. But their albums are very good indie rock, hints of Radiohead and the Smiths and that sort of thing...

  5. Blue's Clues is a great show; my kids would much rather watch it than Sesame Street. More interaction with kids, and the theme and thrust of the show is creative problem solving. Steve is the better host; his replacement Joe just isn't as natural.

  6. John Samson... taking self-deprecating sadness to new lows. One of the Weakerthans biggest hits up here in Manitoba is their song "One Fine City" with its chorus of "I hate Winnipeg".

    But getting back on topic, hoping for the best for you, Lauren!
