Save the Internet: Click here

Seriously, there's not a lot of laws governing what can be done with the internet, so big companies are looking for ways to be able to monopolize your ip address. go sign the petition. please?

meantime, what is it with 1- watching a countdown show. it's compelling. 2- watching celebrities do stuff like play poker, or whatever. 3- vampires?

Last weekend was fun, here in our fine little city. We had an Asian Festival. Yummy food, multicultural dancing, singing, acrobatics and REALLY BIG Japanese drums. Playing those drums must be an aerobic experience. I've heard that the players train on a little Japanese Island and play for hours every day. It was the Matsuriza Taiko Drum show. I hear a lot of the acts at the festival, play at Epcot, Disney, FL, frequently.
And then, in the art museum, there were the Tibetan Monks. They've been here before and spent the whole week working on a mandala. It was awesome. Of course they ceremonially 'destroy' it when they're done and put all the colored sand in the river.

Okay, so let me get this straight... the Prez can seriously push for bigger fining for Hollywood, when a boob goes astray, based on the idea of 'Hollywood has to be responsible for the morality of kids'. (paraphrased)
But the war (and continuation of) is okay for the morality of kids?

On a lighter note, I find myself impressed with the post office. I am constantly amazed at the idea of sending a letter for $.39. The Post Office handles billions of pieces of mail a year and has a really good rate of getting it right. I don't know how many thousands of pieces of mail I've posted and received and I can count on one hand how many have gone wrong.
And to be able to mail a box overseas for the price of a movie is great.
This pic is just a random picture of a Twinkies recipe. Yes there really is a book full of Twinkies recipes. eh? who knew?

I think i just thought of a way to prevent sports riots. Lower the temp. in the arena. No One ever riots at an ice hockey game. It's too cold.
Here's a cool game: laser chess
I like the idea of a game that involves lasers.
Now that I've seen X-Men I'm looking forward to seeing Pirates of the Caribbean. There's always something to look forward to. I have a friend who's not religious, he says his religion is entertainment. It's the new world order.
Apparently part of the new world order includes invitation only e-mail. Gmail accounts are invite only, who ever heard of such a thing?

So Since the last time I blogged, I've dicovered podcasts. eh, it's been a while. Podcasts are a great way to get information and entertainment. I hate radio, it's all commercials and repeated songs. having an iPod has made so easy to listen to music and books and Japanese lessons. Then I discovered podcasts and found out there are a bunch of cool people out there saying interesting things.
Here's a few of my favorites: askaninja, topofthepods, slackerstronomy, universetoday, mondays, planetjapan, japanesepod101, theninjaconsultants, theanimationpodcast, annotatedalchemist, theparanormalist, themaccast, 3things, animetoday, astronomyagogo, smartassscience, doogtoons, thewordnerds, comedy365 and A.B.O.V.E.
these are in no particular order.
i keep toying with the idea of doing a podcast, but what the hell do i have to say anyway?
