Blogging. Now on KUOW, Seattle's NPR station.

Yes, I'm an NPR junkie. I think that it started back in '96 or so, when my folks and the woman I was dating independantly suggested that I listen to Car Talk. From there, it wasn't long before I started listening to news quizzes, and if you're going to listen to a news quiz, pretty soon you've got to start listening to the news.

The morning news magazine (I'm still uncomfortable using that word to describe a television or radio program, but there you go) on my local NPR station is at this very hour covering the emerging subculture of Web Logging. Blogging. Bloggers. People who blog. I think that the host is just a little too entertained by the neologism. But that's him. He gets a little too caught up in superficialities and often fails to grasp the depths of the topics that he touches on.

This reminds me of the "Smatthew" episode of Newsradio. But I'll let that reference dangle there in the wind without going anywhere with it.

Today, I drove past a local movie theatre around 9:30am. Packed parking lot, spilling over into the grocery store parking lot across the street. It's just a movie, people.
