If it weren’t for the DRM

…honestly, I’d probably have already ordered a Kindle 2. It looks like it resolved all my aesthetic issues with the original Kindle, and watching Jeff Bezos sling one around on [_The Daily Show_], it looks light and easy. Oh, to be able to easily search books. And all that jazz.

But I’ll be goddamned if I’ll put myself in a position where someone can suddenly declare that I can’t read the book I damned well paid for.

Weirdest probable homage

On the [_Eagles of Death Metal_]’s new CD, [_Heart On_], there’s a track named “Now I’m a Fool” whose vocal line is not without a resemblance to [_Steely Dan_]’s “Only a Fool Would Say That”.

The presence of “Fool” in both titles leads me to suspect this is intentional, not coincidental.
