>Groove to the (Video Game) Music

>I am so loving the altNPR podcasts, especially Press Start, all about video games. I love the episode about video game music. It brings back fond memories of my pals Amy and Bryan, using our tape recorder to record NES music. Yes, I know, the uber-geek/nerd/dork labels are all applicable here.

Did you know that Beck rocks like NES?

This has got to be one of the more interesting CRS reports I’ve come across:
Members of the U.S. Congress Who Have Died of Other Than Natural Causes While in Office
Yes, I know I’m terribly morbid and curious–but those are naturally inseparable charcteristics: curiousity, after all, killed the cat. And yes, it does list the cause of death.

So, how exactly does “drowned” differ from “accidentally drowned,” anyway?

    >”Members of the U.S. Congress” – Fascinating! This is the kind of find that makes being a librarian so much fun. I can’t wait to read it more closely.

    >No, I totally agree (and I’m glad I”m not the only person fascinated with it!)–when I got home last night and starting putting the second coat of semi-gloss black on my front door, my mind was running through the possibilities of why on earth Congress would need to research its members who had died unnaturally during their term, and the specifics of the cause of death. Hmmm. (Didn’t come up with anything.)
