The Bergen Mall. Ladies and gentlemen, this was my childhood.

Video of Banksy's Barely Legal LA. I'd really like to see it.

This might be the worst web site I've ever seen.

PDN: Photographer James Nachtwey has won the 12th Annual Heinz Award for Arts and Humanities, the Pittsburgh-based Heinz Family Foundation announced today.

I'm a big Jim Nachtwey fan. I'm so glad his work is being recognized.

"[Aperture] now features a new open library system that allows photographers to store image files wherever they want -- either within the Aperture library itself, or in other disk locations, including external hard drives, CDs or DVDs. Aperture can now generate high-resolution previews of each image so that users can review, rate and organize images as well as perform slideshows -- even when the master images are offline. The previews, which can be generated at a range of size and quality levels, allow photographers to keep their original images safely stored on a desktop system at home or in the studio, while still being able to take a compact version of their entire photographic library on the road using a MacBook or MacBook Pro."

This "offline library" function makes Aperture vastly more useful to me. It makes me think about moving from Bridge to Aperture for basic organization.

Even so, I was really hoping that Apple would announce new MacBook Pros with Core 2 Duo processors.

WTF is is going on here?

I just ordered some Chinese food (delivery) for dinner.

After I ordered one of the dishes, the person on the other end of the line said, "I don't know what that is -- how do you usually cook that?"

I wasn't quite sure how to answer.
