Impeachment would be Eventful [13 Mar 2006|10:59am]

I'm not sure this is what the new "demand" feature at Eventful is supposed to be used for --- I think the idea is that people "demand" that their favorite bands and speakers come to their area, and try to build up enough of a crowd to make the show happen, like how I want Brad Mehldau to play in Boston --- but nonetheless...

Demand the impeachment of George W. Bush (in the metropolitan Washington area).

I didn't start it, but you can bet I'm on the bandwagon.

Though if Eventful takes it down, I won't accuse them of being a part of the "vast right wing conspiracy". But in the meantime, I'm going to get optimistic and start a tag here for impeachment.

Thin mints [13 Mar 2006|11:09pm]

novalis, here's a Thin Mints recipe.

I bet I can make these vegan. It might make the rest of you unhappy but it will make me happy. I'm doubting the whole wheat pastry flour, though. That's usually indicative of natural's nasty side.

Turn the tables [13 Mar 2006|11:20pm]

Here's an idea, let's sue the music industry for conspiring to put alternative music distribution networks out of business.

Prominent California attorney William Lerach has now launched a class action suit against the labels on behalf of consumers who have allegedly been overcharged for music. This in itself is not particularly surprising given the ongoing federal investigation into the same topic, but the lawsuit does contain some interesting tidbits. For instance, the suit claims that the music labels fought tooth and nail against the arrival of online music stores, and that they did so by launching their own poorly-conceived (on purpose) online ventures.

Maybe this kind of thing should be called a classy action.
