1km
Hey, update! Running nerds keep like log books of their trips and I've finally reached a decimal milestone: 1km since I've started keeping track. Of course I mean not the diminutive kilometer but the non-standard kilomile, or 1,000 miles (that's 1.6 megameters). Only about 615 miles are for my Pactom project (see progress above); the rest are from running around in circles in Shadyside. Okay I know, boring, see you!


Also Q. What popular TV show has hilariously bad incidental music? A. Lost

And incredible floating-point error title sequence

Oh, yeah, that glitch in the Lost title sequence has been irking the hell out of me for a while.

(That having been said, I do really like the clean minimality of the title sequence and its accompanying "music".)

Ha ha yes, that gap is my favorite part.

Incidentally, what is it that makes the incidental music in Lost hilariously bad? I can't stand the cheap "Hurley listens to music on his headphones for an ending montage" stuff from Season 1, but I don't suppose that's what you're talking about.

There are a number of things, but particularly I'm thinking of the dissonant trailing off trumpets whenever something bad happens. It just gives me a chuckle every time.

(PS I'm still on Season 1 so no spoilers please!)
