It’s been a long time since anyone accused me of being cool. Yesterday, however, that door slammed shut completely: I'm now officially uncool forever.
Last night, the Eagles played at Busch Stadium. I attended the concert. I even made sure to get there in time for the opening act, The Dixie Chicks.
Embarrassing as it is, this is my report.
Before I begin, however, I want to apologize in advance for some digressions I'm going to make along the way. They have to do with my new work-in-progress, Be Rich Like Me! A Memoir, by Evan Schaeffer.
Read on. All with be explained.

The evening began at a downtown restaurant called the Terrace View. I turned my car keys over to my wife, Andrea, and ordered a couple of vodkas on the rocks, doubles.
It's a pre-concert ritual I don't recommend to anyone who likes to enjoy a concert sober. For me, it works.
I also ate a little food. With that out of the way, we walked with some friends toward the stadium.
FEED MAGAZINE ARCHIVES: BACK ONLINE . . . You'll find the archives to the old web magazine FEED here, with this introduction--
Launched in May of 1995, [FEED] was among a handful of "webzines"--as they were once called--in existence then. FEED tried to re-imagine how we would read and write in the digital age even as we dedicated ourselves to the craft of writing, a craft we were perfecting as green writers and editors ourselves.
Roundup Moms in the Legal Profession #155. [PT-LawMom]
Look for next week's roundup at Thanks, But No Thanks then it's back here the week after that. You can find some other recent roundups in the "At the Law Schools 2" category, as well as sixty or so older roundups from 2004-2005 here. Finally, if you want to know how I choose posts to highlight, see "How I Write the Weekly Law School Roundup." (If you have a law-student weblog that I don't seem to know about or that isn't in my blogroll, please send me an email.)
CREATE YOUR OWN LITERARY iPAD APP . . . Or maybe not. Says Scott Lindenbaum of Electric Literature--
It takes hundreds of hours, with a typical development team, you could be paying hundreds of dollars an hour per developer. It can be very, very expensive. We got lucky because we had this team that's working for literature, rather than development, purposes. So we were able to build it sort of on the cheap. But even so, it cost us thousands of dollars to develop the thing.
