Cruising on Auto

The Paper Trail would like to thank everyone who came to our redemption show last Saturday at The Chubby Pickle. Nice to know we're still capable of being a rock band.

The Paper Trail would also like to thank the staff of Passport Canada for their speedy and efficient service in dealing with applications. When I'm seated under a breezy palm tree writing short stories in a couple of weeks, I will have a daiquiri for you.

Casual break continues apace, which is just as well, since it seems to be a quiet night out there overall. Everyone seems to be lost in the Oscar hooha [none of which I watched, except for Stephen Cojocaru's typically maddening best dressed list].

Of course, there's also that thing of Pakistan inadvertently shutting down YouTube across the globe yesterday, which you can see explained on Ars Technica.

Chris Anderson, Wired editor and author of The Long Tail [just read it] posts a long rant to preface the release of his new book Free!, which posits a forward thinking look at how to make money providing things people can score for free online. It's a long, deep read, but worth the effort. Watch the video while you're at it.

I totally want to sleep in the bookcase igloo.

As someone who overall enjoyed the movie Juno, but threw up in my mouth a little everytime that overwrough dialogue got out of hand, I fully endorse the Diablo Cody backlash brewing online. Really, she was begging for it, and she probably knew it was coming anyway.



Men have been sweating in a ring for 30 minutes now, and I've been here with you. What the hell, Windsor?
