Straight out of Waterworld

| August 28, 2008

Dude. Without a backup plan, the two used a satellite phone to get in touch with Roz Savage, who was crossing the Pacific solo in a rowboat and happened to be in the same area at the time. Savage, who was heading from San Francisco to Hawaii, was in dire need of water after [...]

iPhone, Fashion

| August 28, 2008

It’s interesting to see what people think of for iPhone apps. Hmm, double preposition “of for.” Is that legal? Somehow I got from there, to Giorgio Armani’s wiki, but I’m not sure how. That baller.  Oh wait, it was from here: Armani designing villas in Egypt.

The Girl in the Window

| August 27, 2008

Sad. Not to sound overly dramatic, but it really does sound like her human spark was just extinguished. Thanks Eric. Her caseworker determined that she had never been to school, never seen a doctor.

NYC stab victim’s cries ignored for half hour. August 25, 2008. Hey! This sounds familliar! 1964, NYC, Kitty Genovese killed in public after calling for help over a 30 minute period. I guess society hasn’t learned shit. Then there was that dude in LA who got hit by a car, and no one helped him. [...]

DuckTales Intro Revisited

| August 24, 2008 O.M.G. Amusing, yet disturbing for its corruption of my fond childhood memories. Thanks Andre.  

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

| August 23, 2008

I’m late to the party, but I finally got around to watching it. It’s low-budget awesomeness. Three acts comprise one episode. Why does Joss Whedon own so much? Neil Patrick Harris was pretty good, too.

Liberal, But Not Against the Death Penalty

| August 22, 2008

I wrote this draft about a week ago, then I got lazy, with a mix of a sense of futility. I’m not as enraged as I was then. But I still think he should die. Actually, I just looked at the pics of the poor kids. WTF is wrong with him. He’d make good target [...]
