i am not a stuffed tiger.


for those of you counting down to November 2005, Ralph Fiennes has been signed to play Voldemort in the next Harry Potter movie [guardian]. Whether he's allowed to say his character's name remains uncertain.

Also: I think that the Guardian has Clemence Posey playing the wrong character. Given that she's a French actress, it seems more likely that she'll be playing Fleur Delacour. You think that since it's a British paper they might have someone on staff who read the books.


in other news; Apple's service is exceptionally fast. I sent my laptop to them on Tuesday and it was back in my office this morning with a shiny new hard drive.

things you should know

(or, I don't want to be the only one to know this)

There is a reality show on VH1 about Hulk Hogan, his teenage singing daugher who is managed by Lou Perlman. Like the Osbournes, they have a lot of pets, but the Hogan pets include a greater variety of species.

I only watched it, but didn't hear any of the dialog (upfall/downfall of gym facilities with multiple televisions).

Everyone in the gallery was wearing fake silver construction helmets, on account of the new Forgotten Works being under construction. And by everyone, I mean the few people officially involved with the gallery, not everyone at art walk. This was on Thursday, and when we arrived some percentage of the entries in the challenge had already been purchased off the walls, but the space was full of people and rather toasty, temperature wise. The quality of the art was surprisingly good.

Later, we walked around through the thing in the brick courtyard where people set up booths to sell their art and checked out the opening at calix. Also, Pioneer Square was flooded with sailors in their dress white uniforms, possibly because of SeaFair. We tried to guess the percentage of them that would find sexual partners that evening.

Somehow we ended up going to the Live Girls cabaret and had science-fiction themed refreshments while waiting for the show. Very exciting options included: TANG and vodka and StarCrunch(!). The beginning of the show was funny, but went on too long given our group's level of hunger, which we satisfied by going to that italian place by the lofts.

At the restaurant, there was a guy freaking out about his dead cell phone battery. His job is to accommodate people who get stranded by airline cancellations, which sounds like a great way do develop an ulcer.
