I told the children I was going away for a little while. I told them, "New York." Since my daughter has only ever heard of New York in the movie, "Madagascar," she thinks that's where I'm going. Madagascar.

I made exactly one CD to take. I don't have a portable mp3 player (I'm hoping to buy Tony's off him when they release a new micro-terabyte drive model) and I doubt I'll be able to listen to iTunes on my laptop, so I didn't even bother with that. When I'm in the car, however...I'll need some tunes. This is what's on my CD:




  1. Homage to the Mountain - Yello: Baby

  2. Bogota - Mr. & Mrs. Smith

  3. Hammerhead - Broken Arrow

  4. Serenity - Serenity

  5. The Chase - Kill Bill Vol. 2

  6. The Equalizer Busy Equalizing - Steward Copeland

  7. We're of of Gas - Back to the Future III

  8. A Russian Overture - Trance 2005 Vol. 2

  9. Hymn to Red October - The Hunt for Red October

  10. Prolouge - BSG Season 1

  11. Passacaglia - BSG Season 1

  12. The Shape of Things to Come - BSG Season 1

  13. Allegro - BSG Season 2

  14. The Storm and the Dead - BSG Miniseries

  15. Ski Chase - On Her Majesty's Secret Service

  16. 007 - Thunderball

  17. Bond on Bond - Bond: Shine

  18. Stargate Overture - Stargate

  19. End Credits - Cutthroat Island

  20. Less Than A Pearl - Enya: Amarantine

  21. Chevaliers de Sangreal - The Da Vinci Code

  22. Creating Governing Dynamics - A Beautiful Mind

  23. Main Title - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

  24. Across the Stars - Star Wars: Episode II





Saw a few emails from my boss where this thing appears to be spiriling out of control. We'll now be working directly under his supervision, which is great - he's good at this sort of thing. Will be getting up at 0550 for my 0920 flight. I want to be good and ready. Took all day to pack today. Saturday, I bought a 25" pullman. $180 at Kohls. They were having a 60% off sale which ended the day before, but if I checked out prior to the computers updating at 1400, I could still get it on sale. Ran to the checkout and got it for $72. What a deal. Packed my laptop in my checked luggage so I wouldn't have to mess with it as carry-on. Then I checked the website. NO LAPTOPS ALLOWED IN CHECKED BAGGAGE. Nice.

You are too cool. However, a recent email from my boss read, "There is a lot of work, it will not be a lot of fun, plan on long LONG LLOONNGG days..."

Sounds like somebody’s boss is a Gloomy Gus.

Everything's so mixed up when it comes to packing for air travel. Pretty soon we won't be allowed any luggage at all :P

Have a good trip despite your boss, and enjoy your music - looks like a good line-up.

Yes, drax0r and I had a lively discussion concerning this very thing after the announcement of 'no gels or liquids.' All we did was follow this train of thought out to its logical conclusion, and it was very silly indeed.

Thanks!

I would be very interested in hearing what you conclusion(s) was(were).

I too, have a theory. I think that what will ultimately be the case is no luggage and required nudity...after a full body cavity search.

Why can't free people just be free? To create all these regulations is to let the terrorists win. They have succeeded in their mission: causing terror, chaos, and pandemonium in the hearts of American people. I say, let free people be free.

What, no Taking of Pelham One Two Three or Ghostbusters? What kind of New York mix is that!?!

No West Side Story or Gershwin?

Until you've seen me burst out with I Feel Pretty you haven't seen anything! My hetero-lifemate sings bass with me on that one.

I know, so much I left out...72 minutes! Gershwin sounds good about now though.

I don't know! Maybe I'll pick up a little local color while I'm here so I'll have a better idea for next time...

Ghostbusters... heh.

Thanks dude. So far the only real issue is lack of sleep. I'm averaging about four hours a night. *sigh*
