Here are some things John talked about:

  • Isaac Newton’s – John celebrated his ninth wedding anniversary recently with dinner and drinks at this fine eating establishment in Newtown, Pa.
  • FFFFOUND! – John has been bookmarking images like crazy since he found…er…FFFFOUND!
  • EwingNJ.org – John serves as chair of the Ewing Township, N.J., web site committee and he informed us that the site officially goes live on January 1, 2009. Watch John’s video of the public unveiling. Or…read this Trentonian news story (that refers to John as Jack).

Here are some things Brian talked about:

  • Christian Beach – Brian talks about his friend Christian’s Nov. 29 show at Googie’s Lounge in New York City and future CD releases.
  • Warren Wolf retires – After coaching all 51 seasons of football that have ever been played at Brick Township (N.J.) High School, the 81-year-old Warren Wolf retired as the state’s winningest football coach with a record of 361-122-11 to go along with 25 division crowns and six state sectional titles. Not really related to technology and arts, but Wolf is worthy of the acknowledgment. Read this Asbury Park Press story and be sure to watch the video on that page.
  • Truphone – A free, voice-over-IP application for the iPod Touch that sort of turns it into an iPhone.
  • Princeton University Art Museum – A recent visit allowed Brian to see two special exhibits, Jasper Johns: Light Bulb and Frank Gehry: Online. Brian also had the chance to visit the newly opened Lewis Science Library, which was designed by Gehry (see photo above).

  • David Tennant leaves “Doctor Who” – David Tennant, who plays the titular role of The Doctor in “Doctor Who,” has announced he will be leaving the show after a series of specials air in 2009, leading to a regeneration to an 11th Doctor for the fifth season (or series, for those of you in the UK) in 2010. Good luck in your future endeavors, David…you were arguably the greatest Doctor of them all. But the show shall move on, as it always has…even if there is a 16-year break between series.
  • MTVMusic.com – MTV has established this online archive of more than 16,000 music videos — and it’s growing every day. The site has a large number of rarely seen clips, such as long-forgotten gems by Mike Oldfield like “Shine” (featuring Yes’ Jon Anderson) and “Magic Touch.”
  • MTV-Harmonix, Beatles reach deal on video game – Apple Corps has signed a deal with MTV-Harmonix, the makers of Rock Band, to create a standalone video game featuring music from The Beatles’ catalog. The agreement marks the first time Beatles music will be moved into the digital realm (outside of CDs), as the legendary group’s music has yet to appear on iTunes, Amazon.com or any music download service.
  • Philadelphia Phillies – Brian is ecstatic about the Philadelphia Phillies winning their first World Series title since 1980 — and only the second in the franchise’s 126 seasons of play. He also thanks fans who uploaded video of the historic moment to YouTube and web sites like The 700 Level, The Fightins, PhilliesPhans.com, and, especially, BackSheGoes.com for enhancing his experience of this championship season.
