Invasion of the Time-Sucking Electric Box

Thanks to Tivo, we watched Invasion of the Saucer-Men tonight. It's one of the movies of my yoot, and it had all the standard ingredients of a late 50s teen movie: befuddled adults who refuse to believe the kids; secretive military guys; skeptical cops; and drunken cows. The technology of Tivo is certainly broadening our cultural horizons.

It wasn't totally wasted time, though. With our laptops before us, we multitasked. June whipped up web pages for Julian Charter School. Alex rewrote his blog software in PHP from scratch. I watched the movie.
