While the provision regarding TiVo and commercial viewing is alarming enough to consumer watchdogs, the Intellectual Property Protection bill also makes it a crime to watch aging white actresses in bath towels flirt with pro bowl wide receivers.

I'll back Explosions up on Nisei Lounge - that place really is cool, especially since most everything else around it is overrun by chest bumpers and pocket-sized blondes. I guess the Earth - even Wrigleyville - is not a cold dead place.

Re: and another thing:

Does Linkin Park's name come from the Lincoln Park in IL or NY? Or neither? <3. Linkin Park took their name from an actual "Lincoln Park" - the kind with trees and slides and bird feeders - in their hometown of Santa Monica. It was actually a switch from their original moniker of Hybrid Theory, whi...

I was driving from between Illinois and Michigan late last Sunday night, and picked up some hot Aurora Borealis action around Kalamazoo. They didn't let up until I was in the environs of Detroit City. These particular versions were a ghostly white/grey, and seemed to drop like miles of linen sheetin...

Fair enough. Vancouver then? Or maybe Montreal? Parlez-vous francais? Well, I'm torn. Based broadly on record labels, Vancouver has Mint, Montreal has Turbo, and Toronto has the promising Paper Bag. But that's just generalizing. We need some of GloNo's CanCon enthusiasts to chime in with the answer...

You're right Jake, Central America has the drug trade on cheap 'n' easy lockdown. But I can't stand lime in my beer, and getting taken hostage by a paramilitary group and having to beg the clueless American Embassy to pay the ransom so I can get out doesn't sound like fun. Just ask all the hostages ...

I'm so sorry guys, this really sucks. Well, is it too early to start planning the Great GloNo Northward Exodus? I was thinking of Vancouver, until I fell in love with "Brave New Waves" ( http://johnny.gloriousnoise.com/0407/north_shore_is_not.php ), which I think is broadcast out of Montreal. C'mon...
