    Glenn links to this interesting rundown of the Kerry September Hijinks. People wonder why he isn’t going up in the polls?

    Some interesting bits over at NewsAskew including that Buffy’s own Faith (Eliza Dushku, as if you didn’t know) was who Kev had in mind for the part of Maya in Jersey Girl.

  • The Inside

    Somehow missed reports that Angel/Wonderfalls vet Tim Minear may be signing on as exec producer/showrunner for a new Fox ‘high school undercover drama’. Rachel Nichols (Dumb and Dumberer) and Peter Facinelli (Six Feet Under, The Scorpion King) are set to star. Link via Whedonesque where one smartarsed commenter asked if this wasn’t the basic plot of 21 Jump Street.

  • Fixing an oversight

    Here’s Gregg Easterbrook’s TMQ for Week 1 and Week 2 of the NFL season. It’s not really football season until you see “Les Mouflons” and “former extraterrestrial Kurt Warner” in the same column.

    But sadly, “(WARNING: MAY CONTAIN FOOTBALL-LIKE SUBSTANCE)” has been retired to mark the Denny Green era. (Bonus snark aimed at Green is included, as is bonus snark aimed at Tuh-RAY-za. I’m serious).

  • And I thought hurricanes were bad

    Looks like Mt. St. Helens is clearing it’s throat for an encore of it’s 1980ish tantrum.

    Dan Rather is apparently being forced into retirement in the spring. Too far off, but I’ll take it anyway.

  • Tease

    Power went out Saturday night around 3 AM. I woke up then and both my UPSes were almost dead, meaning it had gone out about 15 minutes before. And that’s also why I didn’t post the “The power’s gone out” message from the last 2 hurricanes. Anyway, this time I had a generator so it wasn’t nearly as awful. I was able to watch DirecTV, keep my fridge spitting out ice cubes, run some fans (and lamps after dark), and even microwave things. Unfortunately the cable doesn’t seem to work when my neighborhood doesn’t have power (I tried) or I might have even posted something.

    You know you’re a threat to the Donks when the New York Times does a hit piece on you.

    UPDATE: Lileks is of course on this too.

    Ian wanted me to let you all know that he is surviving the long power outage and accompanying messy weather. Normal transmissions from the Terran Bunker in the heart of Hurricane Land will resume ASAP.

  • Starting to pick up a bit…

    Some fairly big wind gusts now (probably 40-45 MPHish), but we’re not supposed to start seeing “real” effects for another hour and a half or so. Wheeee.

  • Hmm

    The 11 PM track shifted slightly south and west again. Should make it slightly less bad here. I hope.
