Well hello there, Google Reader

Colin told me about the new & improved Google news reader last night. I tried it out and after five minutes I was in lurve. I grabbed my OPML file and, one quick import later, I have a new home. I didn’t like the first incarnation of the Google reader, and kept going back to the FeedDemon/NewsGator combo. Recently, I had to ditch FeedDemon because of sync problems I couldn’t resolve, though I kept using NewsGator. However, NewsGator’s web reader is clunky and Google reader actually feels as fluid as a desktop app, so I’m sold.

For now.

  1. Here are some shots from the BYOP at the Horseshoe: http://flickr.com/photos/delineated/sets/72157594301285159/

    This was my second time seeing them. They first played the Mod Club but now have a new drummer. Their shows are all of 30 minutes but they make it minute count.

    Cold war Kids are profiled in this month’s Nylon: http://www.nylonmag.com/radar/featured_stories/092606bestwestern.html

    The Dears show at The Mod Club was on of the best show’s i’ve seen this year. And not just because I am in love with Valerie Jodoin-Keaton.
