Daily Grind: Calm

Name: Vin (aka shaggy)
How Vin feels today: Calm @ 1:18:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Enjoy a quiet Monday at the office due to the holiday. Attempt to get a leg up on some upcoming work projects.

Music Stuck in Head: Nothing
...and it's kind of nice actually.

Stuff to do today:

  • Convert some non-compatible iPod movies to compatibile versions with iTunes 9
  • Converting...    converting...   converting...
  • Holy crap, this is taking a long time
  • Twiddle thumbs
  • Start drawing up new DotComic strip for this week
  • Note that season premier of Dexter was pretty good, creepy as always, but pretty good
  • Thank Showtime for showing more than enough of John Lithgow for one week
  • Post-rehab House should be interesting tonight as well
  • Note that overall Fall television programming so far has been pretty entertaining
  • Even Heroes was borderline decent

Your gateway to iTunes on your television site will now set you back just $229 instead of the previous price of $329. Oh, and you can kiss the forty gigabyte model goodbye. C'est la vie!

Live action Star Wars television series might be hitting the air in 2012.Live action Star Wars television series might be hitting the air in 2012.

The show is rumored to be of the hour-long drama variety and may feature very few characters (if any) from the existing Star Wars universe.  Sounds good so far. Note to LucasFilm: please follow The Force Unleashed plotline.

Ten of the most underrated cartoons of all time.Ten of the most underrated cartoons of all time.

Ah, the days of Danger Mouse. Batman Beyond (also on the list) was a pretty awesome (and suprisingly bad-ass) series as well. Those looking for a nostalgic dose of it should check out the movie, Return of the Joker.

Not sure if I can see this happening as an updated AppleTV seems to be more sensible.
