Re: Firefox = T3h Fail

Hmmm.. it does let me login if I login from https://mail.google.com, specifically. The regular login uses https, but doesn't work... however, I still can't login to my blog (Blogger) or this website, for this matter. I also have no idea why it works in IE and not FF.

Re: Misheard Lyrics

I just remember this lyric from Phantom Limb by The Shins, where it goes...

"Another afternoon of the goat-head tunes
And pilfered booze"

Always thought it was something like
"Another afternoon of the gopher spoons
And pilfered boobs"

Without a doubt, Coldplay at Madison Square Garden, NYC, June 23rd, 2008. Tickets were win-only, and a friend of mine won and was in Pittsburgh that day. Fantastic show because of the amazing energy of the crowd, and the rawness of the show, as it was a pre-tour, exclusive concert. NICE.
