Hacked Chuck-E-Cheese robots play hip hop. Perhaps the scariest thing I’ve ever seen?

The Lakewood Dog Park vs. Rocky River

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

Dear Rocky River, Only a person with no joy in their heart, a true miser, would try to close a dog park.

The Simpsons movie, while not terrible, wasn’t very good either. Good dog park day though. # Woke up much too early. Got an email from my sister, nice to hear from her Today is my Dad’s birthday! # Yes, the trailers before the Simpsons movie *were* terrible. Makes me want to gouge my eyes out: […]

Wtf NBC, how desperate are you? How many iterations of Taxi must happen to prove just how unfunny Jimmy Fallon is? Dude couldn’t make it through a single sketch on SNL without cracking up. Ooh he’s a perpetual 14 year old boy, isn’t that hilllllllllllllarious?

The Simpsons Movie

Like an episode of The Simpsons, but without the humor and the best characters. Too much plot.

More about the Rob Zombie Halloween redux. Rob Zombie’s movies would be 100x better if he quit putting his wife in them. Scant clothing, it doesn’t replace acting.

No mini rib ticklers # Can’t believe I heard a woman utter the words “Tampon Rock.” # Two hour meeting: Do not want. # My boss cracks me up. # The M&Ms in the vending machine get stuck, eating my dollar. I put another dollar in to get them out. Ate that dollar also. Wtf. […]

The nail in the coffin for live music in Akron, the Lime Spider is closing. This makes me so sad, I have a lot of fond memories of girls-n’-vinyl here. I have to wonder if part of the problem was when they really started focusing on local music, coupled with no one wanting to drive to Akron for a show unless it was really good. A lot of the regulars moved away too.

The end of weekly world news. “Without their insightful reporting, how are we supposed to make sense of the increasing number of heads appearing on our nation’s newborns?”

Awesome shirts from Handmade In Ohio. Nice to see some more great work coming out of Ohio. My favorite is the Bear Friendly shirt.

Nasa’s having a bad year. First diaper wearing stalkers, then boozing astronauts, now this.

Actually getting some work done on the site

Friday, July 27th, 2007

There’s been a little extra dirt the past few days because I’ve been doing some major revamping of both the Wordpress back end of my site, and the visual layout of different categories of posts. You may have even seen the site down a few times, thanks to my mad PHP skills. I hope my sarcasm isn’t lost over the internet. I’ve introduced a friendly way of displaying reviews, tweets, and remaindered links.

This gives new meaning to the whole “I walked to school barefoot 10 miles in the snow uphill both ways” adage.

I want to delete my MySpace account

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

I read a post today that pretty succinctly sums up my feelings about MySpace. It got me to thinking, why do I even still use this awful, bloated tool? Mostly it’s because they got my friends before a better site did. If Virb had come out within 6 months of MySpace, everyone would be using it instead. Now MySpace has become this substitute for email and IM and everyone’s too invested to leave.

The big to-do about Bear Grylls. I think anyone who actually believed he was out there with no help is an idiot. In the credits you can clearly see “Survival Consultant.” The show is intended to be instructional. And I think the fact he’ll willingly drink urine and eat a sheep eyeball in spite of […]

Wired interviews Martha Stewart. This interview really furthers my belief that just about everything you need to know in life can be learned from Martha. “When the Walkman first came out, I called it the Rudeman: Everybody who’s listening to those is rude to me. I think part of the reason I got divorced was […]

That crazy Sprint Flashlight Commercial. Alana’s been wondering how this was made.
