Introducing kegz.net.2. It's not better. It's just easier and different.
Most of the links and updates on life that got posted here at kegz.net in the past are now ending up on twitter or my google reader shared items. The tumblr tools are a better fit for how I read and share online. Habits change over time.
So kegz.net has been pretty ignored. Not everyone uses twitter and/or google reader, but I still want to continue to share links and updates easily with all of you.
I've been magically scooping everything together at http://kegz.tumblr.com and now I'm telling you about it. Please come.

On the Fence and in the Spotlight
One previously uncommitted superdelegate relates her experience this primary season. This is worth reading to understand the process better.

We Are The World redone by Japanese impersonators
As with many things Japanese, kinda bizarre.
Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan says in a new book that President Bush relied on propaganda to sell the Iraq war and that he “veered terribly off course” and was not “open and forthright” about the conflict.
It's all a subtle ploy. We all know that Scott McClellan is a liar. Liars lie. Therefore, McClellan's claims now must be lies and, in fact, Bush was completely forthright about selling the war to the people. Yes, that's it…

In this pitch-perfect parody of Goodnight Moon, we see a child-like George W. Bush tucked safely away in the confines of his own room with all the toys he's willfully destroyed, abused, or defaced. Complete with 'a quiet Dick Cheney whispering hush,' this bedtime story lets us laugh at — and finally say goodnight to—the disaster of the last eight years.
Say goodnight? Unfortunately, it's not that easy.
The Parents' Choice Awards program honors the best material for children: books, toys, music and storytelling, magazines, software, videogames, television and websites. Parents' Choice Foundation's panels of educators, scientists, performing artists, librarians, parents and, yes, kids themselves, identify the very best products for children of different ages and backgrounds, and of varied skill and interest levels.
Added Word World to the recording queue. We'll see how that goes.

Some music tracks from Grand Theft Auto 4 on eMusic
I was driving over the blue-lit Borough Bridge at night with the ambient station (Journey) on and Stacy couldn't stop watching because the atmosphere in this game is just that good and the radio is a big part of it.
The album view of eMusic's offering is a good peek at the similarities of album design by genre. When was the last time you saw a picture of the artist on an indie rock album cover? A jazz record cover in full color? Nope. Russian rock is probably not all yellow.

The photo gallery is worth a look.

Wii Fit comes out tomorrow
We want one. Of course, they're sold out. Nintendo is kicking Microsoft and Sony ass with lesser graphics and I love it.
A very complete list of potential Obama running mates
Choosing the entire state of Ohio as a running mate seems promising.

Unassisted triple play
The rarest play in baseball. I think this is the 14th ever.

When Obama Wins
Keep refreshing. Data collected from twitter by Jason Kottke. My favorite? Fortune cookies will really end with “in bed”.
I'd like to add: The phrase “You don't have to be a rocket scientist” will be outlawed forever.

All of Inflation's Little Parts
NYT infographic on consumer spending categories and corresponding inflation rates. So much better than a pie chart.
Isabella Rossellini enacts mating rituals of insects and other garden friends. Fascinating for the science content, but also for the WTF factor.

If you like to visit factories when you go on vacation, then you and I shouldn't go on vacation together. But if you do, you probably know about Factory Tours USA. Make sure to check out Roadfood.com so you can at least get a good meal before the tour.

Today is Dan's birthday, and it is also this blog's birthday. Happy Birthday to both!
I've alternated posting random crap and things I care about here for 5 years. Over the last 2 years or so, I've learned that when it becomes a drag, just walk away, do something else for a bit, and it'll get interesting again. Don't think too hard and just enjoy it for what it is.
Thank you to everyone who has read and commented on this site. If I've moved you to listen to listen to something new, appreciate maps more or use an RSS feed reader to consume the internet, that's a good deal.
