Okay, so it's been a week of innovations, announcements, new releases, and anticipation. We've got a lot to look forward to, and at the same time, not entirely that much. A breakdown of stuff to come:
What thrills me but, by all logic, really shouldn't:
so, which spice girl are YOU?
I honestly don't know why I'm so entirely chuffed at the idea of a Spice Girls reunion tour, but I totally am. Maybe it's the part of me that still dances to 80's music in my living room on a Wednesday night. Maybe it's the sad, lonely part of me that publicly eschews all things cool while secretly wishing it could be a part of them. Maybe it's the part of me that's really been yearning to zig-a-zig-aah for so long but doesn't really know what that is. Regardless, I'm all for it, even if Posh has gotten all skinny and Ginger has gotten all hippie and Sporty has bangs and Baby is having a baby and Scary has had carnal knowledge of Eddie Murphy.
What really doesn't thrill me but, by all logic, really should:
It's an incredible piece of technology, and I'll admit, I lust after it. One of my favorite cartoons when I was growing up was Inspector Gadget, and it was largely because Penny had that notebook computer, and oh I wanted that notebook computer so bad. And now, not only is a WiFi-enabled notepad computer available, such technology is old news, because you can get a movie player, a music player, a photo viewer, a computer with Internet access, an address book, and, oh, yeah, a phone, all in one adorably tiny package.
Of course, if you don't have $500-600 to spend on a phone, and/or if AT&T isn't your cell service provider, you're SOL. Making the iPhone ever-so-slightly less attractive than it might otherwise be.
What really, really thrills the hell out of me that, by all logic, is absolutely right in doing so:
Hells yeah, I say. Hells yeah. Y'all know where I'm gonna be at 12:01 Wednesday morning.

Your Ten, and your expectations for old music and new technology and the full-on awesomest movie of all time, go in comments.
