Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Some of you (like Tommy) have noticed that this shiny new blog is spitting out bogus permalinks and trackbacks. It’s true, the launch has not gone smoothly. These are the main things I’ll be occupying my time with this weekend; several other tweaks will be applied as well. Hopefully I’ll have it all fixed by the beginning of next week.

If anyone out there is a WordPress expert and/or backend website maestro (specifically regarding PHP), I’ll accept any help you care to give.

As a result of this, posting will likely be sparse (although not non-existent) for the next two days. There’s little point in creating a bunch of content if there’s no way to link back to it.

Highlighted by campaign visits from President Bush’s Hispanic nephew, Mexico is becoming an election-year battleground for these United States.

Initial thought: Just how many Electoral College votes do the Bush and Kerry campaigns imagine Mexico has?

But of course, the target is not Mexico itself, but the estimated 1 million American citizens who live there. In what’s looking like another tight race, both parties are scrounging for every vote they can get. Similar pushes are being made among expats in Europe and Asia.

Haven’t experienced a good live techno show in a while. So I think I’ll hit DJ Christopher Lawrence’s headliner show tomorrow at The Masquerade. Ten bucks — you can’t beat it.

Finally, a solid reason to hit Ybor. More to the point, a reason to visit The Masquerade for the first time in years. I believe the last time I was in there was around 1999, when Vanilla Ice was kickin’ off his nu metal tour (it was a huge disappointment, probably because I didn’t want to hear anything except the metal version of “Ice, Ice Baby” — like everyone else in the house).

I’m old enough to remember when The Masquerade was the only thing that existed, club-wise, in Ybor. Back in 1990, some friends at school dragged me out there for a rare off-campus clubbing opp. I was new to the area, and the drive seemed horrendously long from south St. Pete; for a long while after, I was convinced we had driven most of the way to Orlando…
