Really. Seriously. Is this necessary? Bandages made from Duct Tape?
This really isn’t a joke, and they do now exist. The “manly” bandage. Apparently guys were just sticking duct tape on their cuts already, so the smart people at 3M decided to build on that by actually making it into a bandage.
Nexcare 3M Duct Tape Bandages are bandages made to look and feel like real duct tape. The packaging says they provide “heavy-duty protection for minor cuts and scrapes”, and are longer in length to accomodate the meatier fingers of a workin’ man.

The rain has returned to Vancouver in full force. It’s dark, gloomy, cold and wet.
Time to take the sweaters from the vacuum seal bags…
Time has an interview with Joss Whedon and Neil Gaiman here. Both of them have a movie coming out this Friday. Joss wrote and directed Serenity, and Neil wrote Mirrormask. They talk about their work, their fans and popular culture.
The remake of Oliver Twist is set to come out on Friday.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I never heard of this one coming. I have been waiting for some movies for months, but never heard a peep on this one.
Oliver Twist was a movie I watched over and over as a kid, and the remake is one I think more true to the spirit of the story than many recent remakes have been. The characters have great spirit and the cinematography looks inspiring. Sure to be a Roman Polanski classic.
Unfortunately, we’ll be seeing this later. We’re set to attend Serenity on Friday.

I’ve started to release some of the data from the Qumana Survey we did a couple weeks back. I think there is a lot to learn from the data, and I am so excited to be sharing it. The survey covers a lot of things in the blogosphere, including blog experience (today’s post), advertising, RSS and more!
I’ve released three questions now, and have done a bit of digging to see how certain questions fit together – I think understanding these patterns is really important.
Anyway, have a peek over there and stay tuned to the Qumana blog for the rest of the survey – I hope to get a post out every couple of days. The digging does take a bit of time!
Some data to crunch on:
Most people taking our survey had 3 to 5 blogs
A fair number of bloggers spend more than 6 hours per week blogging

ArtistServer.com is a really cool website for independent music artists and their fans. Artists get a place to showcase their music, share their thoughts and join a network of independent musicians. Music fans can download music, create playlists and explore the site to find new music (and keep up to date with tons of available RSS feeds).
The person behind all this is Gideon Marken, an entrepeneur and artist from San Diego. He has been involved in this since 2000 when he got fed up with mp3.com and started ElectronicScene.com which then evolved into an all genre site taking the ArtistServer name.
But now the service has come to a point where it needs some help to continue growing. ArtistServer needs new hardware and software to support their growth now and in the future. You can read the full details on the donation page.
If you like music or you are a musician (which means you probably like music) I recommend you go check ArtistServer out. And if you find that this is a site you would like to see more of in the future, help them out with a donation if you can.
