Short cuts for 2009-02-13


Musak, the company that displaced uneasy silences from elevators everywhere, has filed for bankruptcy protection. Cue the tiny violins. Oh, wait.

I wonder how Musak would have filled the carefully cooked acoustics of the Melbourne Recital Centre…I fervently hope we’ll never know.

Let’s shout out a big ‘Pip! Pip! Hooray!’ to Unix epoch time, as it reaches the arbitrary-yet-tidy milestone of 1234567890 today. (Also, 1234554321 a bit earlier, if you really need a monotonically-increasing excuse for a drink.)

Don’t forget, if you’re unable to hide irrationally from the world today, there’s another chance to catch up on Friday the 13th next month.
