The day the music lived

No, I didn't get new headphones (yet), but I did get a really spiffin' pair of blue drumsticks from Tyler and Angela for all my rockband drumming exploits.

Of course I don't actually have rockband here, so I'll need to wait until I'm back down in California before I can give them a proper workout, but I can enjoy drumming on a pillow in the mean time.

The day the music died

My headphones started coming unglued today. They're just the free ones that came with my iPod shuffle, and they began suffering the common ailment wherein the little rubberized rim around the ear buds starts to randomly peel off.

It's not a big loss, but all the same I do need headphones. I guess it's a good thing I put those Shure SE-115 headphones on my birthday wishlist so some kind soul could buy them for me in but a few weeks time.

They're holding together for the moment, but won't be lasting much longer.

Next on the shopping list

So it looks like apple came out with a new Mac Mini today. It's even better than I expected: not only does it support the 2560x1600 resolution required to run a 30" display, it can do so while also driving a second display at 1920x1200! Sweet!

It's so going on my christmas list. So many things to buy...
