The Morton Salt people have it right

When it rains, it pours.

The very cool thing I mentioned a few days ago is going well. It should be wrapped up within a couple days.

I have been handed another opportunity by a very nice person. No promises, but I would be a fool if I didn't act on it and no matter what happens it's a win/win situation.

The submission period for Polyphony 7 ends today. The new opportunity has forced a last-minute game change on Polyphony 7 submission.

It's a bit of a scramble right now, but a Very Good Scramble. And I can say no more, because I don't want to jinx anything and I should get back to working on stuff. More details when the proper time arises.

random threads of thought from my brain

The one key on my computer keyboard whose label has worn off is the 'n' key. I must open a lot of new documents.

(No) Thanks to gregvaneekhout, I now have "Thunder Island" running through my mind. Can "Muskrat Love" be far behind?

Yes, I did watch the new "Terminator" show "Sarah Connor Chronicles" (and try saying that five times fast). Yes, I have thoughts about it. Yes, I will eventually post them.

LOST comes back in 2.5 weeks. BSG comes back in April. Yay!

It is incredibly foggy today in Sacramento. I can't even see through the park across the street. It's like the windows of the world are all steamed up.

games we play with XM radio, channel 44 "Fred" (Classic Alternative)

I can usually name most of the groups/songs on the "Fred" channel, but occasionally I get a stumper. Tonight's was "Is Vic There?" by Department S, who I never even heard of back then.

Tonight's "Wow, I haven't heard this song in *ages*" was "Party Weekend" by Joe King Carrasco and the Crowns, an Austin-area new wave band in the early 80s. They used to play at dances and proms in San Antonio, then had their one big hit (yes, "Party Weekend"). Joe is still around and has his own web site.
