Replacing a rant...

I had posted a rant here about how crappy my afternoon was but, in the spirit of my New Year's Resolution to be a happier person who doesn't let work stuff annoy me, I'm replacing it with a list of a few things that I've been enjoying lately.

StumbleUpon There used to be a web browser that would send you to random sites that I loved. I can't remember the name of it but I missed it. This is actually better than that because you can tell it what kinds of websites you like to be sent to. I've found tons of games and photo sites and things that might be illegal that I never would have found on my own.

Internet Archive I've only used it for the great Old Time Radio collections but I'm planning on spending quite a bit of time snooping around the ephemeral films section soon.

RUSC and OldTimeRadioFans are also great places to download old radio shows. I'm completely obsessed with them now. I've been listening to them all day every day at work and the days are just flying by. My favorite is still the sci-fi series "X Minus One" but "The Saint" (with Vincent Price) and "Dragnet" are great, too. I'm also really enjoying all the WW2 era variety shows and the commercials. Really fun stuff.

The Lost Room I watched all six hours twice last weekend. They totally better make this into a series or at least do another miniseries because I haven't had that much fun with a tv show in a long time.

A belated happy holidays...doesn't the day after Boxing Day count for something?

I agree with you about the old-timey radio shows...so glad this stuff is readily available on the Web. Check out the Shadow show (starring Orson Welles and Agnes Moorehead!) if you have an opportunity.
