Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

Fuck Blogger, let's jump ship

Corte Madera Chronicles is dead. Blogger's update killed it. Let's jump ship and keep the group blog going over at wordpress. You will need to create an account, but it's VERY easy.

It's all ready to go at:

Email me the email address you use with WordPress and I'll add you as a user. Do it now.

To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars this year the United States Postal Service will be rolling out mailboxes that have been completely wrapped in custom R2-D2 graphics.

They’re not going to fool anyone into thinking it’s an actual astromech droid ready to deliver your postcard to Obi-Wan but they get the idea across. And I think it’s a good idea these will only be appearing at US Post Offices since if they were installed on the streets something tells me they wouldn’t be around for long.

You might also notice that each mailbox has the website uspsjedimaster.com on the front. The site doesn’t appear to be live at the moment but it’s obvious the Post Office has even more Star Wars tie-ins planned. I don’t think a forthcoming line of stamps would be a bad guess.

TV

So Mrs. Lorrimer and I never watch television, except that now we have Netflix, so when people highly, highly recommend certain TV shows we can get them on DVD. Several months ago we burned through Firefly, for example.

The new show that is like crack for us is this. The cast seems to be mostly Canadian stage actors from the big Shakespeare festival up there, and the show is about a big Canadian Shakespeare festival and all the backstage drama. And they get it. They get the backstage drama, and they also get the Shakespeare. Watch it so that we have people to talk about it with.

upgraded blogger

Aw crap. Fucking Blogger is going to make all of us get gmail accounts to be able to post to this blog. It's fairly painless, and I use gmail anyway, but it's still fucking annoying. I hope you all go ahead and do it and keep this silly thing going.
