Near my bus stop there is a store that sells stupid novelty stuff.
In the window of the store is a boxed game. The game is an
Operation rip-off called "Alien Autopsy". The slogan of the game is
"One false move and its scream will send you running!". It should
really be dead before you autopsy it. It's not "Alien Vivisection", after all.

Thanks for telling me that the IPTD link didn't work, nobody.

I just listened to IPTD and the guitar part sounds really bad,
like I've been playing for six months instead of four years. I mean,
I'm no Frank Zappa, but I think I can play the relatively simple IPTD part. Something with the guitar setup (like the ancient strings) may
be the problem, as I can play IPTD fine on the acoustic (which I
use almost exclusively now, but I have no reliable way of recording).

A while ago I read an article about the guy who invented the
computer algebra system (I believe he wrote Maple), and how he had
this book coming out where he would revolutionize everything
with his ideas about cellular automata and the like. My question is,
what happened to this guy, and where is this book?
Speaking of revolutionary books, Susanna gave me Guns, Germs, and Steel
YES. Read it. It is a work of unparalleled might.
It took exactly as long for me to read it as it took to fly back to LA
from Virginia. I will lend it to anyone who wants to read it and
to whom I can give it instead of having to mail it to them.

I find it difficult to think of why Trader Joe's sucks. But I'm sure I could
think of a reason or two when pressed.
