Estrella-spangled, lofted bedroom (Nintendo) Wii

+ Spanish 'Star-Spangled Banner' Draws Ire . Guess what I think about this?

"Would the French accept people singing the La Marseillaise in English as a sign of French patriotism? Of course not," said Mark Krikorian, head of the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that supports tighter immigration controls.

No they wouldn't, and isn't that part of the point? Do we want to be like the French in this regard? Political name for a think tank that's basically anti-immigration.

Still, the remix sounds pretty sketchy:

A remix to be released in June will contain several lines in English that condemn U.S. immigration laws. Among them: "These kids have no parents, cause all of these mean laws ... let's not start a war with all these hard workers, they can't help where they were born."

+ If I keep linking him, I'll have to add him back to my blogroll:

Having such small apartments, city residents want to make the most of the space that they have. In designing a loft apartment for his son, architect Kyu Sung Woo came up with an interesting solution to the space problem...he fit two stories into a one-story apartment. The result is The Interlocking Puzzle Loft, a surprisingly spacious two-bedroom palace crammed into 700 square feet.

As shown and described in this article from Dwell, the key element in the loft is the half-height bedroom above the kitchen and the bedroom's walkway positioned above the short downstairs hall closet and back kitchen counter, which allows the apartment's inhabitants to stand up in the bedroom. Pretty genius idea. #

+ The new Nintendo, which was codenamed Revolution, and which I wrote about before, now has it's official name: Wii.

I'll tell you what: some editor got that puppy updated fast at Wikipedia!
