What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?

Frequency is probably a term more commonly associated with 80’s synth-pop artists and electrical sound engineers. However, it’s not to be underestimated or underutilized as a viable word in other situations. I worked with one of the more difficult teaching challenges in my experience yesterday at my drum circle. A gentleman joined us with a… Continue reading What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?

The Horrors of the Obama Administration

This week’s “The Pain” comic tells the story – probably from my area of the world – of Obama’s election. When I first perused it, I had assumed Mr. Kreider was not a fan of Obama. For this one, you need to read the Artist’s statement which raises the comic wit. …watching Obama‚Äôs luminous acceptance… Continue reading The Horrors of the Obama Administration

Tastey Nuts

I’m a fan of the seed and nut family, as many can attest. I maintain a supply of them at my desk at work for the occasion of snacking, which comes regularly. There are also infinite jokes to be told that never get old: Hello everybody. I have brought my nuts for everybody to enjoy.… Continue reading Tastey Nuts

Dragon*Con 2007 :: Wrap-Up

Upon arrival at DragonCon Friday evening, I was met by a frantic Jeff at the Hyatt hotel. It would seem that the hotel doesn’t actually guarantee two beds in reserved rooms. A curious approach, as we had booked the room for quad occupancy. To make matters worse, the room presented to Jeff had a window… Continue reading Dragon*Con 2007 :: Wrap-Up

DiY PC: Antec Truepower Trio 650W (PSU)

Now that I have a case, the Antec Nine Hundred if you remember, I needed to get it powered…adequately. I went through quite a bit of research to try and figure out how much power I would need, but in the end I found it more difficult…and inexact to do the “right” thing. It seems… Continue reading DiY PC: Antec Truepower Trio 650W (PSU)

Microsoft Acquires SeaDragon: Photosynth Preview

Wow! I mean, really?!? Words cannot express this amazing (new-ish) technology. A picture is worth 1,000 words, and this technology brings together thousands of pictures in new and innovative ways. Perhaps we’re getting close to a proper expression now. I’m not going to attempt to rationalize or dissect this concept because I really don’t know… Continue reading Microsoft Acquires SeaDragon: Photosynth Preview

Four Eyed Monsters (2005): Film 2.0

My mind was working on a few different angles while watching this film just now. I saw the advertisement on YouTube and had the 70 minutes free time. Well, actually I was busy working on a wedding video and wanted a distraction – how apropos. At once I will congratulate the creators on a job… Continue reading Four Eyed Monsters (2005): Film 2.0

What is Hentai?

I get a lot of comment spam with the word hentai mentioned. I get that it must be something erotic from the context, but that’s it. Sometimes it’s in the same random group of words as handjob and Asian. When did Asian become a dirty word? I’m a little afraid to do any searches with… Continue reading What is Hentai?

Too Zune to Tell

I got a Zune for Christmas – a wonderful gift, really. I really wanted to get into the iPod/Zen/etc. scene, but I wasn’t that interested in the whole iTunes thing. I also want video to be a comfortable size and 4:3 aspect ratio. The Zune has that, and is still pocket size and relatively inexpensive.… Continue reading Too Zune to Tell

Christmas is a Time for Family, the Black Mafia Family

My Jewish friend at work, Mr. Smith, brought to my attention a Creative Loafing series about the Black Mafia Family (BMF). Just in time for the holidays I learned about a brotherhood so rich in…well…ice, scrilla, green, snow, and other hip-hop terms I’m learning. The whole nasty crew started up as small-time drug dealers and… Continue reading Christmas is a Time for Family, the Black Mafia Family
