Rumor has it that the Video Show set will be out on September 13, not October 5. C'mon Rhino!! If that's true then it's 36 days until I can get it!! This fall is going to be good.

Yesterday I finally was able to count the 9/8 in Supper's Ready. I know someone was saying last time I mentioned this that it's easy and you just count to 9, but I had a hard time finding it because of where Phil puts the emphasis during Apocalypse. So I promised myself after that joyous moment ("one two THREE four FIVE six seven eight NINE...") which brought a tear to my eye, I inch ever closer to making that phone call to see if I might start drum lessons. Apparently Phil didn't even count when they were playing this - he just "felt" it. Anyone who wants to say the man doesn't have talent can meet me outside. And show me their rendition of Supper's Ready.

Randomly emailed one of the guys from the Crowded House mailing list who had a G-related sig. Think I've got a new pen pal across the pond!

We're still plagued by ants in the kitchen. I'm so done with summertime. Work is busy and tedious. It's impossible to play air keyboard and clean data at the same time. Also why won't the tree trimming guy return my calls??

The hip_domestics memories section has an entire section on pests. Maybe it will help you with your ant problem!

summer_queen and I fought ants valiantly for months back in Annapolis, throwing every natural kitchen-safe remedy we could at them, and they just kept coming back. Eventually, we brought in an exterminator, who worked some magic, and the ants went away. He said the stuff he used was so safe your pets could lick it. Wild.

will give strong consideration to this exterminator business.

Okay, this is totally insane, but, I was listening to Elliott this morning, and there is a woman in Diane's neighborhood that swears that you can get rid of Ants by screaming at them for a few days. It's worth a shot? I guess...;)

I think Phil Collins has talent, I just think it's for drumming, not for singing.

Someday, I'll finally forget what "There's Something in the Air Tonight" sounds like.

Re: ...
i have a fondness for his singing, and i think he is musically talented in general, but i recognize that his voice is not to all tastes. i don't really have much of his solo stuff but i reckon i will before too long, because i'm an insane completeist.

Make a line of chalk that the ats have to crawl through to enter the house, right by wherever they're getting in. Ants don't like to walk through it because it messes with the sensory organs on their feet.

Re: ...
this seems easy enough to try, thanks!

Re: ...
Boric acid's a cheap, non-toxic chemical which kills ants by acting as a dessicant, sucking their moisture out. Yum! I bet you could pour the powder into a ketchup squeezy bottle from the dollar store, and make a line of that around your house. Again, worth a try until you decide on exterminators.

Hee! Hey, if Hugh Laurie can do it, why can't you?

You are my new favorite nerd.

dare i ask what song he was playing at the time?

Hee. It was The Who's "Baba O'Reilly" (which most of us, me included, thought was called "Teenage Wasteland" all these years). He has a fancy iPod station in his office and later in that scene when he is trying to dramatically dismiss the Big Jerky Boss Guy from his office, he defiantly turns the iPod back on...and it comes up with "Hava Nagila." Cracks me up every time.

isn't it fabulous when our obsessions intersect... even as tangentially as this? :)

Why yes. Yes, it is!
