You goin dooowwwnnnnn

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

The indictment of Scooter Libby is the most sinfully delicious story to break on the news wires since R. Kelly got caught piss-and-preteen-pussy-handed. Libby, Rove, Cheney — I hope to see them all swinging from the trees where they belong for their treasonous betrayal of their own cohorts in the CIA. As usual Andrew Sullivan is the queen to read when it comes to this whole affair, in particular this post tells the story in a concise way.

And we’re back

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

I’ve never been happier to pay $40 for a measely amount of gas. Thank god this period of living like Bosnians is over. Now, it’s time to try to salvage what’s left of Halloween Weekend *insert spooky sounds*..

Business idea

Friday, October 28th, 2005

I’m going to start a dating site that matches up people in a scientific way, kind of like eHarmony, but we’ll match people based only on their Selectcomfort Sleep Number.

Wilma, you whore

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

For some reason, my buddy list is almost entirely empty right now. Maybe its because 90% of miami is without power. You’d think FPL would “get it” by now but alas.

As usual I am saved by the Blackberry.

The wall of radar

Sunday, October 23rd, 2005

For those of you who can still muster the feigned interest to even read about Hurricane Wilma this late into the hurricane season, I suggest you check out the overwhelming and weird Drudge Report Wall of Radar.

Best Metafilter comment ever

In response to an article about windfarms and the birds that die as a result:

If the environment didn’t want to get raped like this, it shouldn’t have evolved us.

Children of house

Sunday, October 16th, 2005

It’s weird, to me at least, how house music went from being the foundation of nightlife in Miami to being an afterthought. I used to be surprised if I would hear anything other than house; I’m now surprised if I hear any house at all. It bothers me somewhat being the only person I hang out with who actually likes house, but I can’t do much about it. I guess I’ll keep trying to convince myself that Sweet Child of Mine is suitable for dancing.

An issue worth caring about

Tuesday, October 11th, 2005

Save Chris Wilson - aka the guy from NowThatsFuckedUp - whose barely-interesting porn site was recently taken down by the government due to “indecency.” He was thrown in jail. The openly discussed pretext for the arrest is the fact that Chris offered free access to the porn if you posted a picture proving you are serving in Iraq. Which meant that I got to see plenty of blown up Iraqi newspaper boys and whatnot along side smiling, dim-looking American servicemen. Can this administration get any more ridiculous?

Simplify

Monday, October 3rd, 2005

Have I mentioned how happy I am ever since I cancelled my Netflix subscription? No longer do I have this angry pile of unwatched artsy european movies staring at me every time I walk past the DVD player. Life is simple: I either like what’s on the four cable channels I know of (HBO, Comedy Central, IFC and CNN — I haven’t bothered figuring out the rest yet) or I don’t. End of story. No monthly “is it worth it” decision-burden. Nothing.

I am going to apply this principal to the rest of my life and ride a mule to work in my one tuxedo.

Background music

Saturday, October 1st, 2005

The National Geographic African Watering Hole Webcam is really really cool. I have a window open to it sitting in the background so I can feel like I am at peace with nature and the good spirits of the African savannah.
