I had been planning a political diatribe, but I haven't been able to come up with any useful solutions to the world's problems, and I don't want add another thousand word whine to everybody's daily reading.

I also had planned on having a book review by now, but I haven't been able to commit the time to finishing the book I'm currently working on.

So, having no real content to add this past week, I did what seven years in the Internet industry has trained me to do, and I added a bunch of features to the site.

KitschI was watching the Game Show Network while Office was installing, and they showed a clip from what must've been a 50's variety show. It was a set of quadruplets (three girls and a boy) doing a version of "Istanbul (not Constantinople)."

I had been under the impression that that song was a TMBG original, but I guess I was wrong. It's funny the things you come across on late night (or early morning, as the case may be) cable.

Update: It was an episode of "I've Got a Secret" from sometime in the spring or early summer of 1960.

KitschI kept saying that I'd get around to it, and it appears that I finally have.

I now have my own damn blog, so I won't have to clutter up people's comments sections anymore.
