They will all be mine

I have a good start going, but its missing a few pieces and now that I've done a bit of research I have quite a few more to get. Fine China of Japan #6701 - if you got any, I may be interested.

A new record

Libby is the first Whitehouse Aide to be indicted in 130 years!! Go Bush!!



The indictments better damn well come out tomorrow - I've been waiting over a week now. I don't imagine this will be the final nail in the coffin for these fuck-jobs, but I don't mind watching the pain.

Sirius or XM

I just can't quite decide. I've been leaning towards XM lately, they seem to have a more complete programming which includes AirAmerica Radio, Starbuck's Hear Music stations, and local traffic reports. However, Martha endorsed and gave out Sirius radios on her talk show. As good gay boys, we promptly looked at each other and asked, "Should we go with Sirius?"



Off to Canada for the weekend!


A Question of Ethics

(Got this forward from a friend)

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. No one else will know, so you won't be fooling anyone but yourself if you give anything but a truthful answer. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer must be honest, yet spontaneous. Please read slowly and thoughtfully, giving due consideration to each line.

Here's the situation: You are in New Orleans. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury….

Suddenly, you see a man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer… somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's George W. Bush, President of the United States!! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under… forever.

You have two options - you can save the life of G. W. Bush, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.

So here's the question, and please give an honest answer: Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?


The anticipation is killing me

Apple's "One More Thing" event is Wednesday, a day after their financial results come out. I really, really doubt its going to be a video iPod, and probably the rumored Madonna Special Edition iPod nano in pink. Then ofcourse some updated PowerMacs and maybe some other small things, but we won't know until we know. And I want to know now!


The New Honda Civic Hybrid: 50/50 mpg gloriousness

OK, I've never been much for Honda vehicles - tending to prefer European cars. But with Toyota making headlines with their advances in hybrid technology and actually producing cars with the technology. I'm a little a-flutter with the new Civic - Its going to be starting at $21,000 - and it gets 50 mpg in city and highway. Thats awesome - especially compared with today's models. Now I just hope BMW can get there X3 Hybrid model out in time.


I can't decide

iBook or iMac?

It's Refreshing

I find it refreshing to actually hear of conservatives talking badly about Bush and his decision making skills. Its great. Now although Rehnquist was appointed to the Supreme Court without judicial experience, I still find it irresponsible to place a rookie on our highest court. My feelings are the same with John Roberts - who had only two years of experience as a judge and now he's the Chief Justice - it seems totally inappropriate.



Life has been boring around here lately, just work and home. There was a puppy for a few days, but it didn't work out so well. Tivo has been recording all the Martha goodness out there now. Rome on HBO has been hot. The Stargates were both pretty fun for their mid-season finales, but I think Battlestar Galactica needs to be recorded now. However, probably just shutting off the TV would be a good idea. Suddenly my computer and iPod will no longer talk with each other so I'm stuck listening to my thoughts at work among the deadly quiet of the office. We're all just starting at our computer screens, its getting very boring. We're hosting our first Thanksgiving this year, invited my parents up and apparently my brother will be tagging along which is and isn't all that exciting. Halloween is quickly approaching and so is Christmas, just 84 shopping days left. Yeah, I said it. We bought 230 pieces of candy for an estimated 15 kids - we'll both be getting fatter shortly. Kitty ate through my iSight's firewire cable again for the second time - but its not getting replaced again since I never use it and any notion I had of podcasting just isn't going to happen soon. At home my creative juices are just all gone, I don't blog anything but news with little else. I haven't painted in many months. Anything creative is all done at work - I've been learning the InDesign pretty well and starting to make some pretty cool things. I'm probably on the bottom in terms of quality of work, but I'm covering ground pretty quickly and I'll be taking classes sooner or later on the clock. I've been wanting to take some classes for the design programs for quite some time, but haven't wanted to fork over the dough. Now I don't have to worry about.

Last night we watched "Downfall" - a pretty good movie in German. Made you almost feel bad for Hitler, but then you quickly snapped out of that idea. I dreamt in German all night - I really need to improve my speaking ability, but then when would I use it?
