I think it's a great song, but I don't even think it's Willie's best -- Crazy.

I love technology . . . except when I don't.

In the rare down time between semesters, I have found myself with the opportunity to read for pleasure. At my wife's suggestion, I read a book on her Kindle. It wasn't my first reading experience on the Kindle—in fact, I have used the Kindle a lot. I love the Kindle, and just about everything about the experience of reading on it. Reading the book was great, even with booklight at night.

When I moved on to the second book, I used an actual book I checked out to the library. And honestly, I find the process of using an actual book to be a bit clunky in comparison to the Kindle. I love the limited movement/noise of only having to click a thumb to turn a page (especially when I'm reading in bed and Em is asleep and I'm trying to stay quiet—I can't help it, I'm a noisy page turner). The book is significantly bigger, it's heavier, and it's just more cumbersome all around.

But the problem is this. Now that Em and I have both read the book that she bought on her Kindle, we're stuck with it. That's my biggest problem with the e-book technology—they have worried so much about protecting the technology, they have made it too hard to do the most important thing that people love to do with a good book -- pass it on. I love buying and selling used books on Half.com and eBay, but I can't do that with the Kindle books. There is no secondary market. And that's going to be the biggest letdown about this technology when "the next big thing" in reading comes along -- there will be no way for this window of time to be captured.

Right now, if I were to stumble upon an old box of books somewhere, it'd be awesome. Even if I didn't know any of the authors or titles, I could try one out, or look them up, try to sell them, etc. Ten years from now, what is anyone going to do if they find an old Kindle?

I love having the Kindle technology. I just hate being stuck with the Kindle books when I'm done.

If the rest of Jason Mraz's new album lives up to this new song, it is going to be simply amazing. I love this song already. Simply great.

This is the stuff of nightmares. Absolutely frightening events in Ohio right now.

Awesome cut of The Office remade about a sadistic serial killer, Toby.

It's not Bebo's song. It's by a guy named John Gorka.

Amusing, and a little sad all at the same time.

Ok Amazon, I am very impressed. The Amazon Kindle Owners' Lending Library is legitimately awesome.

I am looking for 1 lawn ticket for the Avett Brothers show in Greensboro this weekend. If anyone has an extra, or comes across one, please let me know.

Although I have to say, Avett shows in NC are an extra level of awesome.

By far, the best and easiest experience I have ever had with a car dealer. Every single member of the staff went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable, informed, and generally taken care of. Derek Parker could not have been more helpful in the process of me getting my new Nissan Leaf. He answered all my questions, and was incredibly helpful in making this a great decision.
