The 40,000

I passed 40,000 characters written specifically for the book today – and that’s mostly photo captions. I have a pre-written backlog of much more, from my Web site primarily, to go in the body text.

I have other work I need to do, like Reader’s Digest research I’ve essentially ignored since December. I found out I now have a deadline for that; it will be published in July.

So I just spent a half day fiddling with Last.fm’s tools, building a list of currently played music, which you can see in the right sidebar of you scroll down. I’m not happy with the colours, but Last.fm won’t let you customize the palette.

Bonus thought on “300”:

I suppose more people know that “300” was based on a comic book than know it was based on a real battle.

  • Glad you commented on 300. This has been bothering me. I keep seeing it referred to as “The Spartan War,” and, granted I only took one class in ancient Greek history, but I don’t remember a “Spartan War.” Peloponnesian, yes. Persian, yes. Not so much Spartan.

    Ooooh. Battle of Thermopylae. The one with the pass. Okay. It makes a lot more sense now. But there still ain’t no Spartan War. Course, I guess the victors decide that sorta thing, but still.
