Child-exploiter, product placement shill and recent divorcee Kate Gosselin is now immortalized via wig. Really hurting for a Halloween costume idea? How about going as Jon?
I got my Google Voice number a few days ago and man have I been having a BLAST with it!
With Google Voice, you get all your calls through a single number. You can access and make calls from the phone and the Web, block annoying callers at will, and record custom greetings for different callers or groups of callers.
Engadget does a much more thorough review here.
So I left my iPhone 3G in Vegas. Dignity, hygiene, girlfriend… all replaceable. iPhone, due to AT&T’s iron clad early termination fee, not so much. Thankfully because I was previously on a family share plan with a buddy I could still qualify as a NEW AT&T customer (Suck that you monopolistic, corporate d-bags).
So deciding to really stick it to the man, I decided to opt for the $50 upgrade and get the White (pure class) 16GB 3GS. The ‘S’ is for speed btw and it signifies the upgraded hardware. Did it blow me (ha), a 3G user for the past 9 months, away. Short answer: Kinda, Sorta, Maybe, Meh.
Before you know it, you’ll have one of these bastards chasing you down the street…damn you Japan!
I once had an argument with friends over what would be more terrifying: The zombie apocalypse or the robot apocalypse. I argued that the robotics industry is nowhere near making robots as menacing as the ones in the Terminator movies and we are basically at the Johnny 5 (The robot from Short Circuit for you popular folk)level of robotics minus the intelligence. I went on and on about how biochemical engineers are making some crazy discoveries in the field of re-activating dead brain tissue etc.
My friends insisted I was wrong about my fascination with zombies and that robots were the real threat. They had me watch Ghost in the shell and some other anime involving cyborg women with enormous naughty pillows. After I ran out of Jergens I began searching the web for breakthroughs in robotics. This is the first of many twisted creations the Japanese are cooking up. Cue Terminator music and a bowel movement.
I went to a Catholic High School mostly because “all my friends were going”, and because I got to wear a pretty cute uniform skirt which I’d hike up every chance I got ; An act that very often landed me in detention.
While I didn’t really pay too much attention in Religion class, I did come away with a few things. Some rules Catholicism likes to call The 10 Commandments. Numero Uno on His list is not worshiping any other gods. Yours truly went through a Wiccan stage in High School but I’m pretty certain that any of the Gods/Goddesses I was worshiping at the time were way fucking cooler than Shia LaBeouf, so forgive me if this collection of artwork from crazed fans is a wee bit disturbing. As a culture we tend to take our celebrities and turn them into Gods. Now, fans are creating their own religions based on these celebs.
This is a great little free app on the iPhone for Exercise and Diet monitoring. I’ve been using it for a week or so now, and keeping track of your daily calorie intake and calories burned through all manner of activities.
