note to maie potts and the other woman hosting tonight’s tokyo police club show at nathan phillips square:
one moment you are upset about the lack of respect from the crowd, and the next you are talking about next week’s concert featuring the weakertons. i can’t imagine why you weren’t getting the crowd’s respect.

i still have a working 2400 baud external modem in my closet…

there was a great line in last sunday’s toronto star article entitled “road testing the $100 laptop’s ‘appropriate technology'” by ryan bigge, discussing the TRS-80 model 100, a laptop from 1983:

for any youngsters reading this, 300-baud is only slightly faster than watching jean-dominique bauby composing a sentence in the diving bell and the butterfly.

and if you haven’t seen that film, please please do.

a long overdue facelift

as you may (or quite possibly may not) have noticed, i’ve finally given chumptastic a long overdue makeover. in the process, i’ve moved chumptastic to a real host (rather than an ancient and slowly dying P2-800 PC that’s been sitting on my floor for 4 or 5 years), and i’ve finally ditched movabletype in favour of wordpress.

things are still a bit rough around the edges, so bear with me. oh, and you’ll have to update your feeds – apologies.

Pronunciation: 'ch&mp
Function: noun
Etymology: perhaps blend of chunk and lump
Date: 1883
