Really Hi-Tech

All you folks who haunt the music/video stores may know this, but long-form music videos on DVDs are new to me. The list of performers releasing them is certainly eclectic. On the darker side of entertainment, your favorite Internet radio station may go dark as of Sunday; the bill to block the Library of Congress royalty schedules from going into effect has died, at least for the moment.

Speaking of flying to work (see here), how about riding choppers to work?

Teenage angst has gone agoraphobic in Japan, if this story is to be believed. Over one million teenage boys have become hermits in their own homes in the past few years. I remember being pretty reclusive when I was 15-16 (Mom calls it The Great Silence), but certainly nothing like this. I lived in that country for two years, but I never really understood the people, and reading this makes me think I never will.

not to be crass, but don't all teenage boys that age lock themselves in rooms and, you know, ... i mean, it's fairly normal?
