So here's the deal-io. I have always hated the radios what play the music. On my drive to work I listen to Sports Talk because it's generally inoffensive but interesting (since I like sports) and I can occasionally hear a traffic report (I will not get into how useless those are). This week the people on the station I like are all off, so they were broadcasting some national crap show, so I flipped around the FM dial looking for some traffic info (I really am stupid).

Never found a report, but what I did find was a station playing Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order, which is cool because any station playing New Order is probably going to continue to play interesting stuff, right? Next song: AC/DC, following that, some new pop rock crap I couldn't even recognize.

For some ungodly reason, I left the station on (probably because I was a block or two from work when the crap came on). So I got in the car to leave for home and what's on? Some odd recording of Blue Monday I had not heard before. Next song? Hootie and the Blowfish, then Red Hot Chili Peppers, then the White Stripes. What kind of schizophrenic station would sign up for that playlist? Now, I am not exagerrating that the New Order songs were what was on the moment I turned the station, two timews I turn it on, both times it's just starting a New Order song (well, for all I know the Blue Monday was 12 minutes long and I only caught the last 6 minutes. . .).

So, in other news, you all might know that I play the games online. Last night, I was trying out a newish mod on a popular server for CS: Source. And for the first time, I was banned from the server because I was 'cheating'. Yes, I was doing so awesomely well, I can't play there any more because the moderator decided I had to be using hacks.
That was awesome.

In other news, I'm still waiting for news on Milwaukee. Let's keep those fingers crossed. I will start getting impatient on Thursday, I think.
