12:38 pm - Help!

Dear Nerds and Music Lovers Alike --

I am annoyed with iTunes.  Most of my data and world exists in the cloud (Web).  I've organized myself this way so that I can access my stuff from any computer I'm on.  I know with MP3s and music copyright issues, etc. this gets a little more complicated - but I genuinely don't mind purchasing music the legit way, I just don't have a computer I can download iTunes onto and so can't purchase and then load music onto my iPod.  I have to jump through a couple of hoops to get iTunes on my work computer, but regardless, I end up buying all this music and then have no easy to transfer it.

So anyway - here's my question.  Has anyone worked out a system where they buy music, store it online, and then are able to sync their iPods from that online spot, not matter what computer they happen to be on?

Much love,

10:06 am - iPhone scorecard
Valleywag rounds up top reviews to-date (mossberg, pogue):  http://valleywag.com/tech/critical-consensus/the-iphone-scorecard-272765.php

So far I trust Pogue the most -- and fancy screen and awesome browser aside, sounds like there is some serious latency issues due to the AT&T network.  As a Treo owner now, NOTHING drives me more nuts than waiting for a site to load.  Especially when you're trying to get shit done.  So I may wait on this.......

9:28 am - oh man
oy, this morning was rough, to say the least: http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/us/AP-Highway-Collapse.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin

Is it just me or does the Bay Area have a larger than normal volume of freeway ramp collapse situations?

9:22 am - are you kidding me?
Omg. I was under a rock all weekend and missed this breaking story: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2006/10/2/8273/04875

I'm starting to feel like the ones who scream the loudest are guiltiest, know what I mean?

1:31 pm - oops.
Yesterday I had that feeling you get when the boy you like in school gets a hold of that note you passed to your friend about how wonderful you think he is while Sister Mary Gabriel Joseph has her back turned to you while writing examples of cursive a's on the chalkboard. Not that I've experienced that before, I'm just speaking hypothetically. At any rate, I can imagine the embarrassment that kind of thing could cause a, say, third grade girl, after the virtual note I passed my online buddies yesterday accidentally fell into the lap of its subject.

At any rate, the folks at TNR were very kind and even gave me free stuff for the post and assured me they saw the humor in it all. So now after coming out of the blogging closet for a moment, I will retreat back to the privacy of my own friend's list.

9:54 am - Foer Family
Last night I saw Jon Stewart on Larry King Live at the gym. It was even more hilarious than I expected and sort of screwed up my work out because I was laughing so hard. I don't know how you people dig up links to that stuff, but I mean, you should check it out if you can.

I just started reading How Soccer Explains the World: An Unlikely Theory of Globalization - it's like Freakonomics - I've just sort of been slowly making my way through its very interesting chapters in between the fiction I read. Also, Brandon is OBSESSED with soccer as a sport and its global, political and cultural implications -- so this book has been interesting to me since he talks about this all the time.

Anyway, I didn't realize the author was a senior editor at The New Republic and I really didn't know he was Jonathan Safran Foer's brother, until this story about becoming editor today in the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/28/arts/28repu.html?8hpib

He's kind of like my dream come true - soccer loving, newly appointed editor, political version of JSF. *sigh* dreamy.....

8:37 am - Special Elections
In honor of today's special election here in California. I'd like to ask this political question:

Does Gavin wear make-up? I feel like I see a distinct make-up line there.

3:54 pm - Calling all hipsters, scensters, and music geeks
A friend of mine asked me to help him out and suggest some bands for a radio show he is producing on the Seattle music scene (at his college) as part of a series about music coming out of cities from all over the country (Austin, New York, etc.).

I'd like to know your thoughts. What bands do think HAVE to be included on a playlist about music born in Seattle? Past, present and future.
