This plane is a better dancer than I am. I’m amazed that it can just float there and hover like that. I want one now.

Starlords starts off kind of slow, and the introduction goes on way too long. Once they break into the dance number though all is forgiven. That’s some funny, wacky editing right there.
Cripes! What do you suppose the chances are that I won’t be acutely aware of Justin’s Rattlesnake Bite story the next time I go hiking? Seriously, I was overly aware of looking for snakes before, and that was when I thought that snakes would mostly try to avoid humans if possible. Justin says he was [...]
Windy Days is a delightfully cute little game. It gets old pretty quick, but it’s nice for a few moments. I like the depth of field — until I start feeling like I’m going blind.
Bendito Machine is a cool little flash animation, but I have no idea what it’s supposed to be about. The site that’s hosting it says it’s about our capacity for hate and war. I don’t get that out of it, but I guess it’s as good an explanation as any.
Since I still had some time off, I checked on visiting the Getty Villa. It just reopened, so you have to get reservations to visit. The rest of the month was full, but I got lucky and was able to get in yesterday. I think I like the Villa even better than the new Getty [...]
I had some time off from work, so I took a quick trip North to California’s Central Coast Area (Morro Bay, Cayucos, Hearst Castle, Cambria, Big Sur, Carmel-By-the-Sea, and Monterey) (photos). Then, I cut over to Yosemite National Park (photos). It was a nice and relaxing trip. I hadn’t really been to either part of [...]
How is it possible that Donald Rumsfeld still has a job in this government. Actually, I’m not even sure why Bush still has a job, but the country spoke, and we get the government we deserve I guess. What was I saying? Oh yeah, Rumsfeld. Well, how about a little: Donald Rumsfeld Orders Breakfast at [...]
I found Anatomy of a Software Bug to be fascinating. Now, I’m a bit of a geek, but I think most people would be interested in this in a detective story kind of way. It basically walks the reader through an error in an old version of Microsoft Word and explores some of the differences [...]
What if… presents a series of ethical thought experiments. I was kind of turned off when I read the first thought experiment which was really transparent. However, the second twist on the trolley experiment was interesting. I think I can rationalize my choices, but even still, I feel like I’m less consistent in my thinking [...]
