Do all Asians look alike to you? Take the Test and find out. Here’s an interesting fact about me. I was almost perfect with the women, and almost completely screwed up the men. I guess it’s all what you pay attention to. Anyway, I split the ticket for 9 out of 18 which puts me [...]

So, TiVo recorded Gilmore Girls for me last night. And, that’s good because I feel like Gilmore Girls is one of the few really good shows on right now (although I am sort of getting into Lost). The thing is, I get it off of satellite, and there was a crazy amount of rain here [...]
This straw art is amazing. I’ve seen some cool things done with paper origami, and I’ve seem some lame things done with balloons. I had NO idea that there were people who were so creative with straws.
The Final Cut. is a fantastic movie. If you can get to see it, you really should. In the world of the movie, there are these implants that parents can purchase for their children. From birth to death, the implant records everything that the person sees or hears. When the person dies, an editor goes [...]
Fellowship 9/11 is a bit tedious, but then so is the guy they’re skewering. I never saw Fahrenheit 9/11. I’m probably sympathetic to the message, but I can’t stand the messenger. Still, from what I can gather from clips and things I heard, this looks like it’s probably a very successful parody.

The Ketchup Conundrum is a great read. I had no idea that flavor balance was such a precarious thing, or that so much thought and research went into creating mass market foods. Now, I want to go have a burger with a great big dollop of ketchup, but as with wines, I’m afraid that my [...]
Man, Jon Stewart went on Crossfire and took the whole show to task with both guns blazing. Samples: BEGALA: Well, it’s because, see, we’re a debate show. STEWART: No, no, no, no, that would be great. To do a debate would be great. But that’s like saying pro wrestling is a show about athletic competition. [...]
Wow! Frank Horvat knows a think or two about making photographs. Really nice stuff.
You know, I was blown away the first time I saw the “Games Without Frontiers” video. There was something so strange about seeing little kids dressed up like adults at a dinner party. I just saw the video for “Y Control” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. That video is MESSED UP. Little kids dragging a [...]
