I enjoy playing instruments far more than I enjoy playing video games, but I remember spending hours upon hours playing air guitar pretending I was better than I really was and don't deny that I enjoyed doing so. It was just as much fun, I think, without a joystick. Imagination is such a glorious thing.

Check out Seamus Heaney's Translation and reading of Beowulf. His translation isn't literal, being considered by some as more of an interpretation because it attempts to capture the spirit of the original poem as it might have been performed over 1,000 years ago. Any fan of Tolkien will enjoy this work, and recognize in it the elements of myth that would later become King Theoden and the men of Edoras. Hopefully the new movie will generate some more interest in the real tale.

Wil - thanks for the heads up on this series. The first episode was excellent. I will certainly be talking this one up to all my sci-fi buddies.

Perhaps a bit OT, but I just discovered the cross-platform app called Songbird , an open source iTunes replacement based on Mozilla code! Although it's no Amarok, it has potential to redefine how music lovers experience music on the web. ...and Amarok isn't ready for prime time on OSX yet - though it is supposedly possible.

I've always been more of a Trekkie than a... Wookie? but I always thought that part with the sandperson shaking his stick over his head was looped! I can't believe they dissed you again. Just try to keep remembering that you're one of the young ones - someday you'll be one of the only ones left to interview, so you'll be a shoe-in.
