2 (of many) cool Xmas presents

I’m trying out the Amazon plugin, so I figured I’d use it to put in a plug for two Christmas prezzies that are pretty cool.

Who Is This America

First, one of the many excellent CDs I got was Antibalas’ Who is this America, which is seriously excellent. Great Fela-Kuti-style afropop with wonderful (long) dance tunes with very cool political lyrics that Fela would have been proud of. A definite keeper.

The Kite Runner

I didn’t get so many books this year, mostly because I go so much music :-), but one book that’s looking really good is The kite runner. I’m only about a quarter of the way through, but the first section (in Afghanistan in the 70’s in the years before and in the early years of the Soviet occupation) is worth the price of admission alone. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of the novel.

Misty and I got the gallery working again!

Misty and managed to get the gallery working again! Actually I did all the technical fiddling, but she was able to run tests for me from St. Louis (iChat rules for this sort of thing!) and is now busily uploading some very cool Galapagos photos.

Much fun!

Now we need to fix the sad and pathetic theme situation on thomasmcphee.com.

I think we might be able to get a random photo plugin for WordPress that will pull photos from our gallery if we want. Would we like something like that, or does that clutter things up?

Are we going to want links to the gallery from the blogs, or just a link to thomasmcphee.com? If we want to link to the gallery, we can have a link that goes to the gallery as embedded in PostNuke, or we can link to the gallery as a more stand alone thing .
