University Square

They recently posted a directory of the services that will be in the UW half of University Square, if anyone is curious about more specifics:

It looks like UHS will be dominating most of the tower.

James Bond: Quantum of Solace

James Bond: Quantum of Solace


So, I might be the only one, but I thought the Quantum of Solace was much better than Casino Royale. Casino Royale was bit to slow for me, and Quantum of Solace really picked up the pace. It has all the car/boat/plane chases and ass-kicking we have all gotten to know and love, without the cheesiness or horrible special effects, of, say, Die Another Day. Plus the opening sequence and song was really sweet. James Bond's character may have not been as witty as Casino Royale, but his innovative use of objects for weapons and fancy espionage-ness makes up for it... plus I still got plenty of laughs. Definitely check it out. Let me know what you think.

Election Day in Madison

I've heard all over that lines at the voting locations weren't bad. I voted at 8:30am and the line was only 20 minutes long. For the post part it was very quiet (probably because everyone had just woke up) except for an intense discussion about the separation of Church and State prompted by the fact that our voting location was a Catholic Elementary School and they were selling cookies.

Obama Tent on UW-Madison's Library Mall McCain Signs in the Madison Camp Randall Neighborhood

Supporters from both parties are out and about, and both were having difficulty keeping their signs upright with the occasional gusts of wind on an otherwise beautiful day.

If you haven't voted and don't know where, Google Can Help.

Added 2:00pm: My friend Kennis posted a photo of an Obama ad projected on the side of Memorial Library last night.
