Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin on "Lost," was arrested the other night for drunken driving on the island of Oahu where the television show is lost. Kim is the 4th actor from the series to have been arrested since the show began shooting there in 2004. First off, is there nothing else to do on the island but drink and drive? Secondly, I hope they don't kill his character off as they did with the other three actors. I sort of like Jin and it would be a shame to see him go.

Apple's new OS Leopard is officially available today. I watched the guided tour on the Apple web site and it looks pretty cool, like everything Apple. They sure know how to dress something up and make it look pretty so you want to buy it (like the iPod). I got an e-mail invitation to a little shindig they're throwing for the release at the local Apple store, and am actually bummed that I have a hockey game and can't attend. (On a side note, do you think it says something about the influence of Apple in my life that I always think of the pancake restaurant as iHop?)

The song of the day is "Joey" by Concrete Blonde off their 1990 album Bloodletting. For me, this is the most memorable of their songs, though I appreciate some of the others as well. This song was the most commercially successful for this alternative rock band. Johnette Napolitano has a great voice.

I'm more concerned that Apple now extends personal invitations to you! It's like when people get "comped" at Casinos - a sign you have been contributing a lot of cash!

Don't know how I missed this post.

Ahhh, Concrete Blonde, another one of my favorite bands. They did an acoustic live version of Joey on their Still in Hollywood album that will knock your socks off if you are a fan of Johnette's voice. She's also a killer bass player. There were lots of great songs on Bloodletting.

I am so excited for Panther. I think I might get my upgrade within the next few weeks.
