Perhaps the decision to include a reference to a ridiculously addictive Justin Timberlake song on this month's banner image was a poor choice. I have had that song stuck in my head for the entire week. That's why the theme for this week's edition of TWII is "Justin Timberlake Songs." I am hoping that invoking the names of so many of his (and 'N Sync's) past songs all at once will somehow short-circuit my brain and rid it of its awful new tendency to play "Sexy Back" in a constant loop.

Digital Get Down: I'm clumping a few computer/technology links under this title, because I'm having trouble finding technology allusions in JT's canon. Shocker, that.

- If you have Photoshop you will enjoy playing with the Crest-o-Matic on Jon22.net. I'm still working on my McMahon family crest, and of course then I'll probably have to make an Addison-Weemer one or Cathy will be jealous.
