This week's futuristic onion has an AV club interview with Billy West, who does (or did) the voice of Fry in Futurama. He seems embittered by the soulless world of network television. A good read about wrangling with the always troublesome network executives. Link via scrubbles

Yesterday evening when I was coming home from work there were a few policemen on my street, just kind of milling about, which seemed odd. It was Gonzalo's birthday (31st) and so we were going out to dinner, and as we left the apartment, we saw that the whole street had been blocked off and a massive police escort and parked motorcade had ensconced itself down the block. I asked a policeman what was going on, and was told that it was "nothing bad" - but he didn't supply any more details. Of course, even before then it was rather obvious that someone important was having dinner on my block, which probably also means that there is a republican living nearby. I more cheering news, drinks were unexpectedly half off at leftbank, where we had dinner.

the poorly named yubnub is a nevertheless useful a command-line web search tool. For instance, typing "gmaps" followed by an address will do a google maps search. from the ever-useful lifehacker. in related gmaps news, someone has combined google maps with 2000 census data, and made a neat search interface.

Iconeon is a fabulous Chicago photoblog, focusing on loop/downtown buildings - I especially like these shots of Marina City.

There is quite a cache of fin-de-ciecle photographs of theatrical personages over here, including the divine sarah (also in a rather sapphic photo), people and their dogs, interesting sleeves which probably looked better in color, and people wearing birdcages.

Several years ago, I read All The President's Men and, feeling inspired, decided to rent the movie shortly after finishing the book. As I was watching it, I came to the scene where Bob Woodward places a flag in a flower pot on his balcony, I began to feel a sense of deja vu creep over me. And then my eyes drifted over to window next to the TV, and it was then that I realized that some of the film had been shot in the alley behind my apartment. And today I learn that not only was it the shooting location, but the real one, according to this washington post online chat:
