Re-programming the Showbiz Pizza Place's Rock-afire Explosion to play modern songs. Man, I used to love this place.

Analyze your credit report carefully and any inaccurate credit report can be disputed. You do not need the help of any expensive credit repair service. Identify incorrect information, send a dispute to the credit-reporting agency, and wait for a response. This practice will correct your credit report. 2/26/2010

It's been a while, but this Joel Achenbach piece on GPS navigation was worth posting for. William

as soon as I post that pinball story, i see that gawker has ripped into it, saying it's a rehash of a BusinessWeek story from a few years ago. William

A story about the last pinball manufacturer in the world. That's kind of sad. William

The New Kids on the Block are reuniting! Everyone get out your old issues of Tiger Beat (with fold-out posters of Jonathan Brandis or Scott Baio) to get autographed at their upcoming world tour.

Clearly, this isn't going to be some trip down memory lane: "'I had no interest going out on a nostalgia tour and singing the same material,' said Wahlberg, 38....But he added: 'We absolutely will do the old songs for sure.'" You can almost hear the tour promoter elbowing him the ribs...tell them you're gonna do "The Right Stuff"!

No reason to think these guys have fallen on hard times or anything and need the money: "Wahlberg has acted on television and in movies, while Jordan Knight, McIntyre and Wood released solo albums." That's pretty good for doing stuff in the last 14 years, releasing solo albums. But then there's this: "Jonathan Knight became a real estate developer." Ding! Ding! Ding! The subprime meltdown captures another victim...America's ears. ben

An op-ed in the Times describes the benefits of willpower thusly:
[C]onsistently doing any activity that requires self-control seems to increase willpower — and the ability to resist impulses and delay gratification is highly associated with success in life.
And then there's this from George Will:
The sometimes terrible truth is that being a sports fan is a physical phenomenon as well as a psychological condition: It involves observable (with imaging technology) alterations of brain matter...."The scientific literature," Grafman says, "suggests that fans of losing teams turn out to be better decision-makers and deal better with divergent thought, as opposed to the unreflective fans of winning teams."
But there's a catch,
Studies of "induced sadness"—e.g., the brain activity of a person grieving about the end of a romantic relationship—might tell us something about a brain on Cubs....In fans, as in players, a team's success or failure can cause hormonal changes, particularly in the production of testosterone.
I guess I'll have to be satisfied with being successful (life-wise, not Cubs-wise) but not very macho. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some Cubs doilies to crochet. ben

I don't think we'll ever see a harvest quite like 1957's bounty: ben
