Wasn't in front of a computer much today and didn't really watch anything tonight besides MLB Tonight and the pilot episode of Twin Peaks (re-watching the series). I'm currently reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I couldn't get into it the first time I tried reading it, but I'm having more success this time and it's really good. Looking to read some nonfiction next with a book about a sociologist who lived in the Chicago projects and a bunch of Civil War stuff (specifically on the Southern mindset before the war, during the war, and during Reconstruction). Um, what else... I'm pondering Donte Stallworth's thirty days for killing a guy and whether or not the Ravens can get Brandon Marshall. I'm trying to decide why Yahoo Music refers to Silversun Pickups as new when they've been reasonably popular for a number of years. My legs are killing me from a day of playing football at a barbecue and then EA Active (two workouts left in the 30 Day Challenge). How else can I bore you? Instead, check out this enjoyable video from the not-so-distant past:

Sociologist who lived in the Chicago projects - is that the guy that was in Freakonomics? Amazon recommended his book to me about the work he did there, but I have not picked it up.

Yep, the same guy. He wrote his own book to expand on what was in Freakonomics.
