The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

“Night of the Lepus” was based on a book‽

I'm going to lunch with a few cow-orkers and ST is driving. While driving, we're subject to his music listening choices, which tend towards movie and video game scores. As a joke, I mention that he's playing the score to “Night of the Lepus” and to my total surprise, no one else in the vehicle had ever heard of the movie.

So of course I start reading off the plot synopsis from Wikipedia and I'm amazed to learn that it's based on a book! “Night of the Lepus” was originally a book! I then switch to reading the plot synopsis of The Year of the Angry Rabbit and … it sounds amazing! An attempt to eradicate rabbits in Australia leads to world peace through an inadvertant doomsday weapon with occasional outbreaks of killer rabbits.

Wow!

Why wasn't that movie made?

Obligatory Links

Obligatory Miscellaneous

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

http://boston.conman.org/2000/08/01

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
