Hit List

***Random obsessions and other things consuming my time lately

1. Pandora Radio-
I have been spending most of my waking time perfecting my stations playlist! You can find the results of my efforts by searching for "Angel With a Crooked Halo" at By far my favorite moment? When "If A Girl Answers (Don't Hang Up)" by Vanity 6 randomly came on!!

2. Motion Comics "Watchmen"-
This morning I downloaded the premiere episode of "Watchmen" in it's latest incarnation- a motion comic. Drawing upon their vast library of graphic novels, DC has recently begun releasing them in a new digital format. These motion comics aim "to bring a visually engaging experience to life through the use of subtle movements, voice-overs, sweeping music scores and stunning comic book artwork". I was totally sucked into it. Sure it's a fantastic story- but even beyond that- this is such a cool way to enjoy it. The voice over work is very good and they have animated most of the tale. Between this and the kick ass trailer for the movie- I am on hardcore
Watchmen overload!

3. The new Iphone-
I am sure that most of my obsessing is due to the fact that I haven't received mine yet- but man am I so over stoked for this. Basically, I am going to continue to pretend that this is the tool that will finally help me get my shit together. I have Mobileme! on the way, and scores of new applications downloaded to Itunes. Now all I need is the damn phone and I am ready to rule the world. Once I start using everything, I will share some reviews!!
