(2) Wed Aug 10 2005 10:09 PST How I Spent My Summer Vacation:
Just a list of things I want to talk about, so I don't forget. More information in additional NYCB entries available on request. Also available not on request but it'll take longer.
- Bozeman: downtown, the co-op
- Museum of the Rockies
- Tiny dinosaur egg museum in the other half of a municipal building
- Lethbridge: town built on a huge gulch
- Brooks: town of boredom
- Canadian Safeway
- Dinosaur Provincial Park and badlands
- Drumheller: town of tourist traps
- World's Largest (statue of) Dinosaur tourist trap
- Reptile World tourist trap
- Royal Tyrell Museum
- Downtown Drumheller and co-op
- Glacier National Park
- Eagles cover band
- Yellowstone National Park
- Freelance antique museums as ways of getting your junk collection out of the house
I think that covers everything.

Continuing the trend of Ka-Ping Yee coming up with stuff that's obviously a total ripoff of my stuff, yet cooler, is Regender, which eats gender the way the Eater of Meaning eats... meaning. I especially like what it did to my Etiquette entry:
"If a man has a title of his own, he should be addressed as Dr. Michael Wilma." Even if that's not his name.
Update: I also like what it did to the part of this entry where I quote its output.

A clickolinko mention made me go check out Brandon Bird again (I thought I bruised him before, but my archives say no). He does really good pop paintings in a variety of styles. And he keeps putting them out; the best of the new crop is The Death of Jennifer Sisko, which I would love a print of (see also previous, more understated, DS9-themed work The Lesson of the Geese). If I could afford it I'd commission Brandon Bird to do my "First pirate on the moon" painting, but as it is I'm stuck haggling with Kevin's cheapskate artist friend.

Thank you, Lazyweb, for coming up with stuff I really had no interest in writing or even using, yet felt that it should exist: Dancing Monkeys analyzes MP3 files and generates Dance Dance Revolution step files for them. The end.
