‘Tis the Season

Happy belated Thanksgiving! After a crazy two weeks of starting a new job, being sick, and life in general, I packed my bags Wednesday night to stay with my parents for the duration of the holiday weekend. To be completely honest, I haven’t been feeling my best emotionally. I have been pessimistic and withdrawn, overanalyzing […]

BoA in Times Square

I’ve had the good fortune of meeting BoA, the Korean/Japanese pop sensation. My uncle is a very powerful man in the Korean entertainment business. When I visited Korea in 2000, he was the Vice-President of Broadcasting at MBC, which is one of the main broadcasting companies in Korea. (As a side note, I’m proud to […]

Natural Harvest

Um… Hmm. I’m not sure what to say. Curious? Yes. Grossed out? More so. Introducing Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes. Because semen “is not only nutritious, but it also has a wonderful texture and amazing cooking properties.” Via Geekologie.

Go Vote for Amazon’s $199-$229 PS3 Bundles!

I’m a total movie nut and own hundreds and hundreds of DVDs. However, J has forbidden me from buying any more. The problem lies in that we have a fairly large LCD television, 52″ to be exact. So while my DVDs looked amazing on my old 27″ CRT television, the non-HD is very evident on […]

D’Antoni’s First Big (Fail) Move

Warriors, Knicks agree on Crawford-Harrington deal; Randolph also traded Why? Whyyyy?!? They’re putting too much stock in the future – they need to concentrate on the NOW. I’m so upset I had to console myself some rudimentary Photoshopping. You may also like: New York Basketball Is Back Friday Brain Dump (Basketball Edition) Anyone Else Going […]

The End of Daylight Savings Time?

President-elect Obama is looking to axe the controversial daylight savings time (DST). I’ve always had a great sense of time so I have never had a problem with DST. However, I do get a bit sad every spring as we lose an hour. How about you? Do you think we should join the ranks of […]

Kickass Crochet Patterns

I love DYI projects and am a big proponent of small, one-man/mom-and-pop shops. However, I never caught the Etsy craze because there is just so much stuff on there! Alas, I have no need to worry. Fellow bloggers often come to the rescue by sorting out the best and the most interesting, saving my lazy […]

The Fail Caterpillar

Twitter has been a lot better with its uptime lately. However, it underwent an hour of downtime earlier today and bloggers everywhere rushed to report a big change. Bye bye, Fail Whale… Hello, Fail Caterpillar! Cute, but I don’t think it has the visual impact of the Fail Whale. What do you think? Via Mashable. […]

Snoop Dogg on Martha Stewart

Can you believe Snoop Dogg was on the Martha Stewart Show today? I couldn’t. Then I watched the video. And laughed and laughed. Moments of particular note include: Martha reads aloud some emails he’s sent her. He continually calls her “MS” and instructs her to “holla back boo” Snoop tries to explain “Snoop-guistics” to Martha […]

iPhone Numberpad App

As much as I *heart* my LG Voyager (especially its rockin’ Navigation system), I do get tempted to by the lusciousness that is the iPhone. In particular, the Safari browser. Although LG and Verizon like to tout the Voyager’s browser as a fully functioning HTML decoder, the fact remains that it doesn’t work too well […]
