Sunday Night Quick Hits

• Good news! The DGOW page is updated with all the stuff I had on my old site. Thank God for, which I’d used a while back to save my old dotMac site (basically, all the non-blog entries never got migrated to iWeb, so my backup became pretty critical). Plus, now I think I have all my old entries and entertainment reviews.

• Speaking of reviews, I will have that Kelly Clarkson album review soon. I’ve listened to the album twice through now, and I’ve got to say, it’s pretty damn good. “Never Again” is growing on my, and really, the first 5 or 6 songs on the album are very re-listenible (and I know that’s not actually a word. I don’t care).

• I got to play with the iPhone a little bit. I need one. It’s freakin’ awesome. I can’t really describe how awesome it is, so I’ll go to a nice go-to movie for quoting, “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.”
Goldstein: You know the Holocaust?
Kumar: Yeah?
Goldstein: Picture the opposite of that!
Basically. That sums it up.

• I’ve been traveling a lot more lately, for both work and pleasure, and I’ve gotten a little more used to flying. I still hate it, of course, but I don’t freak out on flights like I used to. That will be put to the test next week, when I have to fly to LA. Even with the stopover, that’s a long damn flight. It’ll be worth it though, when I get to go to the ESPYs.

• OK, I swear this really just happened. I’m watching “Sunday Night Baseball” and they’re talking about the iPhone. Peter Gammons interviewed Justin Verlander, who bought his, and one for Justin Morneau, at the Apple Store Friday night. This thing is so pervasive that even Jon Miller and Joe Morgan have now had a 10 minute conversation about it. Gammons even explained that to activate it, all you have to do is use iTunes. This is freakin’ incredible. I need one now.
