Keith Explains Podcast
I worked on a TV show called Keith Explains! that aired on public access TV in Cupertino, CA. Keith Stattenfield was the host, and hilarity ensued every 2 weeks.
Unfortunately, the TV station was shut down and so no more Keith Explains! But now, you can enjoy Keith Explains! on Podcast! I took the audio from some of the shows, and turned it into something you can listen to on your iPod (or in iTunes, or whatever else you use to listen to things).
Check it out! It's really great! And podcasts are really trendy now!

Duane's Top 100 Song List
In a previous entry, I wrote about the lists of the top 100 songs of all time my friend Duane and I were going to come up with. I posted my list, and so here is his. Clearly, mine is better.

I went to Battery Spencer just across from the Golden Gate Bridge and took this fabulous picture on Sunday.

My Top 100 Songs of All Time
My friend Duane and I were having a discussion over dinner a couple weeks ago about what our favorite 100 songs of all time were. It was difficult to name them off the top of my head, but it was an interesting question.
So I spent the last 2 weeks compiling my list. I started with all my 5-star rated songs in iTunes, which was about 450 songs, and started removing songs one by one. It became really painful near the end. I cut a lot of songs I didn't want to. It's hard to decide which song out of a list of 101 is "the worst".
But after all the pain, here's the list I came up with, sorted by Artist.
Duane is also compiling his list. When it's done, I'll post it here too, and you can comment on which list you think is "better". I don't think you can say one person's opinion is better than another person's opinion, but that was Duane's idea. Everything is a contest to him.

Where to move to in Canada
In light of the recent US election results, people have been asking me where in Canada they should move to. So here are some ideas.
Toronto in the financial and cultural center of Canada. It boats lots of tall buildings, broadway-type musicals, and major league sporting teams (NHL, MLB, NBA). It's a fun city with lots to do.
Ottawa, the nation's capital, is the center of the high tech industry. You can cross a bridge to get into Quebec, where the bars are open later.
Vancouver/Victoria on the west coast have the same kind of weather as Seattle. So, you don't have to worry about snow like the rest of Canada. And it's close to Whistler, which is a top notch resort town known for skiing and other stuff.
I think Quebec City is the prettiest city. It's real old and looks like an old European city. Perhaps a place to visit instead of a place to live. Knowing the French language helps.
I don't know the legal issues about moving to Canada, but Canada pretty much lets anybody in. Say you're seeking asylum from a madman who is going to get your country bombed.
No Canada safe haven for Democrats
