wtf?? [Oct. 7th, 2005|12:23 pm]

This is wrong in so many ways that it makes my brain hurt...

A bank robber in Bumpus, Tenn., handed a teller the following note: "Watch out. This is a rubbery. I hav an oozy traned on your but. Dump the in a sack, this one. No die packkets or other triks or I will tare you a new naval. No kwarter with red stuff on them, too." Dr. Creon V.B. Smyk of the Ohio Valley Educational Council says such notes are, lamentably, the rule. "Right across the board, we see poor pre-writing skills, problems with omissions, tense, agreement, spelling and clarity," he moaned. Smyk believes that the quality of robbery notes could be improved if criminals could be taught to plan before writing. "We have to stress organization: Make an outline of your robbery note before you write it," he said. "Some of the notes get totally sidetracked on issues like the make, model and caliber of the gun, number of bullets, etc., until one loses sight of the main idea -- the robbery."

I grabbed this off of http://www.crazycriminals.com/

The one after that is pretty funny too.

I'm always fascinated by the beginnings of electronic music and just analog circuits in general. I may just have to go out and get the Forbidden Planet DVD.

The Amiga is back!!!

From this article:

" Jobs was reported to be extremely worried about the Amiga, but fortunately for him and Apple, Commodore had absolutely no idea what they were doing."

The OS geek in me wants to get one, but not anytime soon.

Jesus, check this out:

And I remember everybody thinking the Cube was a technological marvel when it came out. Oh and the Cube was 4x the price of the Mac Mini.

I currently don't have a need for one, but for Apple's sake I hope these things sell like hotcakes.

Creepy [Nov. 30th, 2004|02:41 pm]

[music |The Jesus Lizard - Then Comes Dudley]

Something rather disturbing happened to me over the holiday. To give some background to the story, I have next door neighbors that have around 5 kids, most of them pretty young. One of them is around 5 or 6 and used to always try to talk to me when I would do yard work over the summer. He kept calling me Sparky because he couldn't remember my name every time I told him what it was.

This past Friday I came home in the afternoon to pick up a couple things before I went off to do dork things. Two of the kids were outside playing next door. It was the two oldest ones a boy and a girl, around 9 or 10, not the one who called me Sparky. When I came out of the house, there was a folded up note on a yellow piece of paper on my porch steps. It read:

Michael/Sparky,

Who is your favorite serial killer?


Keep in mind neither my or my roommates name is Michael. I did not reply.

[music |The Advantage - megaman 2, wiley]

At least there was one bright spot so far today...

On Talk of the Nation on NPR, they read some letters from listeners about some previous shows and someone commented about a show on video games and said something about Metroid. Then at the end they played The Advantage doing the music from kraid's lair and credited them with it. So I got a kick out of hearing The Advantage on the radio and it made me smile for once today.

I hate cars even more than usual today. They are expensive, unreliable, dangerous, and just an all around hassle. Their only redeeming quality is that they can get me from point A to point B in a reasonable amount of time.

writer's block, writer's block, writer's block

There is so much in my head, but none of it seems to formulate into any words. I feel like life is testing me right now, and I need to step up to the plate and show that I want it and can do it, rather than inching away or slipping by like so many times in the past.


P.S. - you are amazing and you know who you are
