Huh? What’s That? Huh?

I need to get new earplugs. I initially got them because the Smashing Pumpkins nearly deafened me on the Adore tour. I had great seats, but it was at Constitution Hall in DC, which has the most atrocious acoustics I’ve heard, ever. They had the subwoofers (low frequency, like the bass) jacked way up, and ...

D’oh

these wouldn’t post last night because the server was being a pain. enjoy!

Cleaning solutions

So I mopped the kitchen and the bathroom in my apartment today. The entire apartment smelled like Jewel-brand Pine Cleaner for several hours after I finished. To an alien arriving on the planet Earth, this would seem like an odd phenomenon: “So let me get this straight. You’re going to take your living space, which ...

Blink your way to better web design

The one thing that really drives me absolutely bananas about web design is that I can only seem to do it between the hours of one and six in the morning, and I always end up with a massive headache from staring at a computer and not blinking for several hours. I think I need ...

Blah

I have come to the conclusion that the ideal career for me is Idle Rich. And I don’t mean Powerball rich, I mean Bill Gates rich, but without that whole antitrust thing. I could sit around and just buy crap online and play the guitar all day, and not have to worry about money. Because ...

Technology has its revenge

I was feeling rather confident and nerd-like yesterday, marvelling over the immense amount of knowledge I have somehow come to possess about computers. It doesn’t mean a damn thing when it comes to getting them to behave, but nevertheless, I seem to have soaked up an unusually large amount of knowledge about computers. And then, ...

Blog This

I keep seeing all these stories about how (we)blogging will change the world and how it empowers people and enhances debate. I think that’s a load of shit. I think those types of weblogs that address serious political issues should all go sit in one little corner of the web and fight and spit at ...

Are you open 24 hours or aren’t you?

I went to White Hen on the way back from a midnight IHOP run for the second time in about a month, and for the second time in about a month, White Hen was closed for cleaning. Employees were shooing people away, even as I looked down the door to the sign that says “Open ...

Hmm…

It has occured to me that either the TA or the prof of my News and New Media course may get bored with reading fake AP stories and click on my weblog link when they hit my index page, and thereby end up reading my last post, thereby leading them to strongly consider failing me ...

“I’m gonna make this a little easier on you all…”

Beware these words when they come out of a professor’s mouth. They THINK they’re making things easier for you, but nine times out of ten, they’re making your life more difficult. Case in point: My comm studies prof told us he wanted to “save us some money on coursepacks” and decided to not have a ...
