I Say Ketchup, You Say Catsup

     In yet another example of the fact that for every oddball obsession there is in this world, there's a website devoted to it, in this case, that obsession would be ketchup. I'm guessing that whoever made this site is probably one of those nuts who'll douse a perfectly good steak in the stuff, something that always makes me cringe when I see it.


     In case you haven't seen it, Johnny Cash, who's been in very poor health recently, did a video of his cover of Nine Inch Nail's song, Hurt. You can see it here, on Mark Romanek's website, along with several other award-winning videos he's directed. Although the pairing of musical sensibilities sounded a little odd to me at first- NIN and Johnny Cash- it's a perfect fit and a really moving piece of work I highly recommend seeing.
Should We Be Happy or Worried?

     Well, big news in blogging land: Pyra Labs, the company behind this whole Blogger show, have been bought by Google, the internet search behometh. Maybe this will be a good thing, I'm not sure, but I'm thankful, at least, that they didn't sell it to AOL or Microsoft or something, that would have been really scary.
