A couple people asked about the mix CDs I asked for as birthday presents. My musical tastes are pretty eclectic, so yes, when I say 'whatever you want to put on there for me' I mean it (more or less.) I'm always a big fan of covers, remixes, and mash-ups. If you're looking for more specific suggestions, I keep the list of songs I'm looking to track down eventually here.

Again, lemme know if you wanna do a birthday dinner, so I can plot out next week efficiently. Karaoke looks to remain a go for next Saturday evening, in Laurel. Probably at Oliver's.

(I look forward to the time I can just host a party at my house, again.)

In unrelated news, tomorrow night, I believe I am hitting ChiaroObscuro ChairObscuro Chimichanga Two Laplanders and a dog that place.

We are living in an uneasy moment of moral crisis and institutional disintegration in politics as well as journalism. No administration as tightly wound and paranoiac as the Bush regime could hope to hold together after five years of supremacy and sectarian ruthlessness, governing only for its base."

"Vice presidential adviser I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby resigned after indictment on obstruction of justice, false statement and perjury charges." Also, who is Libby? (Bonus: BBC Q&A on the investigation.)
