Ticketmaster and Live Nation Win Approval To Merge - a.k.a: Good-bye music industry. Seriously, I expect this to bring ticket prices so high that they'll be essentially be cutting off their only other revenue stream: concerts. Although this wouldn't really be a bad thing. Would we really miss Ke$ha? I'd much rather listen to a jazz trio at a local martini lounge anyway.

A Single Man
This movie surrounds around a professor (played wonderfully by Colin Firth) who had just recently lost his longtime partner of several years. The movie is well-paced, beautifully filmed, and very emotional... providing a nice step back from the fast-paced blockbusters of today. And it has a message that everyone can take away from it: enjoy the good parts of life and try to forget the rest.

Why Can't the I.R.S. Help Fill in the Blanks? -
Yeah, government. WTF?
Requiring taxpayers to file returns without being told what the government already knows makes as much sense "as if Visa sent customers a blank piece of paper, requiring that they assemble their receipts, list their purchases -- and pay a fine if they forget one," said Joseph Bankman, a professor at the Stanford Law School.
And why does California get all the cool things like hydrogen-powered cars and pre-filled state tax forms?

Pizza Man Fire in Milwaukee
I had only been there once, but I think I can still say I will miss their amazing cheesy garlic bread. Since the area is very difficult to get to, and the photos various media outlets have taken are really crappy, I thought I'd take a couple for those wondering what the damage is like. It looks like they were still extinguishing some of the fire, 30 hours later.

Mission: Fix Wiimote. Result: Failure.
One of my Wii Remotes recently broke. Not totally broke... you could still point with it and press the buttons, but it didn't measure tilt/movement anymore. Probably as a result of it being the output of frustration from playing the New Super Mario Brothers.
