It’s now 2:30am Saturday morning and I’m finally getting home to get some sleep. Soon, anyway. I was with Jeff McClure working on a Ghostbusters Proton Pack replica. He got some new parts for it and had since lost the sound and light synchronization. I wasn’t sure what I was in for, but Jeff pulled… Continue reading Geeked Out at 1:00am
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)
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
Raquy Danziger Workshop
Saturday I took a workshop with Raquy Danziger of Raquy and the Cavemen. She’s touring for her latest album release, “Naked.” I’ve been looking forward to this workshop since before it was actually being offered with her busy touring schedule. Perseverance paid off and the schedule was finally updated to include Atlanta as a stop… Continue reading Raquy Danziger Workshop
I just bought a new DVD player to replace our perfectly working existing version. But this one is so much cooler! It has a USB port on the front, which most people gloss over at the mere mention of interrelations between household electronics and computer technology. However, I see the potential here. With a USB… Continue reading Philips DVP5960
Zune Wish List
I couldn’t find a place to send my Zune wish list, so hopefully the Microsoft product managers are reading my blog… Zune Hardware: Alphabet ToC Navigation in addition to click-wheel Ratings categories (so I can play 4-star or 5-star music only, for instance) The ability to remove songs from my “quicklist” Setting EQ attributes to… Continue reading Zune Wish List
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
I was totally dissappointed to learn that I missed Balthazar’s first ever live solo gig. It was a total surprise to Amy too. Today, Balthazar took part in his day care’s Christmas pageant thingy. He had learned a song on Monday that he apparently showed great enthusiasm for. So this morning, they handed the mic… Continue reading First Solo
White & Nerdy
Weird Al’s new video, “White & Nerdy” is completely hilarious. Spazzmanda brought it to my attention here at work, where it’s all too appropriate. YouTube has a copy to view (as of the moment of this posting).
Cat insanity! YouTube brings us one of the funnier cat-antics compilations around. Enjoy.
