Google is a surprisingly useful and powerful tool. As an odd show of this, today's Google Doodle for the 30th anniversary of Pac Man, a playable Pan Man game:

After the game is done the Google search for "PAC-MAN 30th Anniversary" comes up, and more of the hits are related to the Google Doodle than Pac Man itself.

It often amazes me when the news bringer is making more news that what it is supposedly covering.

that looks familiar

Check out my new and old motorcycle keys.

I went to go see The Business play on Thursday, and while I was at the show my motorcycle was stolen. Again.

Miraculously, it was also found and returned the next day, with the helmet still attached.

Apparently pushing a motorcycle out of a parking spot and a couple of blocks down the street in front of busy restaurants and bars, all the while bits and peices of the dangling helmet breaking off as you go doesn't alarm anyone.

Oddly the next day someone saw it and thought it shouldn't be there and called the cops, go figure.

After it had been towed to a lot by order of the police ($240, cash only, for almost 2 miles tow), I went and picked it up. The thieves hadn't had much time with it so all they had really done, aside from dropping it a few times, was break open the ignition lock. Luckily I was able to easily hotwire it, after having had some practice in the recent past.

I guess I need to invest in an alarm.
