Things I Noticed, Monday, February 9, 2009

Filed under: Entertainment — CPav @ 8:26 pm

Today is February 9, the anniversary of the first documented striptease performance (at Moulin Rouge in Paris, but not featuring Nicole Kidman), and is brought to you by the word “peelaflea”, a light person, not heavily clothed, from the idea of stripping a fly of its covering.

Here’s what I noticed today:

  • So you’re saying to me, “Wow, Chuckles.  I understand that The Sopranos broke quite a number of barriers involving violence and sex on episodic television.  But what I really care about are the $*%($% swear words.  Since I don’t have time to sit and watch the whole series, is there a way to just boil it down to the dialogue and, even moreso, to just the cussing?  Pretty please?”  Well, I certainly don’t have time to do that for you, so it’s fortunate that a director named Victor Solomon has.  Here it is from Boing Boing.  And don’t call me “Chuckles.”

  • Amazon’s coming out with a 2.0 version of its Kindle e-book reader, but assuming the price point will stay the same as the original model, I’ll stick to my smartphone.

  • Google has released a new utility to allow users to sync contacts and calendars with mobile phones.  I’m going to try using it instead of the free version of OggSync.  I’ll let you know how it works out.

  • New Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered senior Justice officials to review all instances in which the Bush administration invoked the spectre of state secrets to prevent information about warrantless wiretapping from being made public.
  • Evidently a Craigslist ad looking for a woman with adult entertainment experience to run for public office has resulted in a potential candidate being identified.  There appears to be a grass-roots effort to draft Baton Rouge’s Stormy Daniels to run against incumbent David Vitter.
