Graphics tablets RAWK!!!

I've got this old Wacom graphics tablet. (It isn't actually that one, it's the model before that one; the Sapphire CTE-430 but, as I said, it's old). I hadn't actually used it much until recently, when I decided I was going to use it enough to form an actual opinion.

I have now decided that this thing is the bee's knees. It's amazing the difference it makes in Photoshop. Go buy one now and start using it.

Bonus style points

I think beatboxing is kind of interesting, but a little goes a long way. I'm awarding 100 bonus style points to this guy, though, for creativity plus mugging.

Dixie Chicks? Rly?

My beloved wife TiVo'd a bit of the Grammys for me to share, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers performance (woo hoo!). She told me about the Dixie Chicks "wins", to which I replied "fark them ... that was nothing but cheap political posturing on the part of the Grammy voters, whomever they may be." Looks like other people have the same dim view of Grammy voters.
