Tony Kanaan was in excellent position to win at the Milwaukee Mile last weekend. Alas, running second, he pushed just a little too hard and spun himself into the wall with 30 laps to go. Get ’em at Iowa Saturday night, TK!
We gave Famous Joe’s in Madison a shot on Tuesday night. There are appealingly specialized pizzas available, as well as a decent draft beer selection. I think I enjoy Village Pizza a bit more, but Famous Joe’s definitely has a geographical advantage. Ask to sit in Molly’s section; she was top-notch. (And Famous Joe’s, it’s 2011. Do you seriously not have a web page?)
The Alien Blu-ray is good. The Aliens Blu-ray is excellent. Still spectacular films, both.
I first drove a BMW 5-series in 1993, and I’ve never forgotten what a presence that car had. It was crisp, authoritative; dismissive of distraction. I loved it. It was like driving a machete, and it looked the part. I got my first close look at a current-generation example last week, and I’m pleased to report that the stylistic missteps of the past several years are now vanquished.
More people I know (and believe in) are ending their marriage. Still punches me in the stomach every time I hear about it. May I never be desensitized to such.
A tenth-anniversary Halo is coming out (this time for the Xbox 360, of course) this November 15. I’m playing back through the campaign on Heroic difficulty in anticipation/preparation. Halo 4 follows about a year later.
I got to point out a tiger bee fly to my boys last weekend. It was resting on the side of Staples.
