Plea from a Cat Named Virtue: My pick for best song of 2003… I know, I know, it’s a little late, but if you don’t know of the Weakerthans - You should!

The song came to mind as a perfect cross between the sleep deprivation caused by last night’s cat-terror-awakening and something I heard on Roderick on the Line E16 about over-produced music.  It also speaks of card catalogues… so it was doubly-double dealing in my stream of thought.

Before making this post, I was actually trying to buy and gift this album (Reconstruction Site) to Merlin Mann as a thanks for producing so much amazing work-spiration on Back to Work and 43folders (all part of my move from cube-job to self employed) via an Itunes purchase, but aparently you are not allowed to be nice to people who are across a border from you.

Thanks I-tunes/music laws, way to promote world peace.

Anyway, this one goes out to you #hotdogsladies - You are NOT wrong about Sloan, and the Weakerthans are not afraid of dynamic range in their recordings.

They’re my pick for the past decade.

Another Winner in our Color Naming Contest!

Winner: Red 0.45 is now "Ensign Red" by NurkRed 0.45mm latex is now known as “Ensign Red” as Nurk was awesome enough to vote for.  Unfortunetly Nurk was killed by a tribble while down on planet as part of an away party… still we sent his corpse a lovely $10 E-gift certificate.

Next up in the naming contest? WHITE!… boring old white.

You certainly can do better than that, and to reward you we’ll give you $15 in E-gift certificates to our store.

Once that’s done we’ll reset the survey and choose 3 new colors to name!  Thanks to everyone who has voted, and thanks to everyone who has re-tweeted, blogged, posted, and.. yelled out of taxi cabs about our contest.
