That’s kinda pitiful, I guess, but man it’s a good song. I’ve had the album for… three days.


Dear Apple,

I love your laptops. As soon as the MacBook Pro is in stores (February 15th, from what I hear) I am going to run down and buy one. I have an Apple sticker on my beloved car and I’ve shaved an Apple into my back hair. I love Apple.

But, I have a complaint. Your laptops should have a docking station connector. Something nice and high density that is on the back of the computer. As it is now when I get home I have to hook up my power, USB keyboard, Firewire drives, speakers and monitor and it’s a big pain in the ass. It also makes it really hard to move the laptop around on my desk cause I have so many cables hooked up to it.

How about a nice high density connector on the back that I can hook some kind of nice flexible cable to that goes to a breakout box sitting on the back of my desk where all that shit is already plugged in. You could even make the box out of white plastic.

I have one further suggestion. You guys are all about doing the improbable. How about running all those various ports over a single strand of fiber? I haven’t bothered to bust out a calculator and see if the combined bandwidth of all those components is too high but that’s what your engineers are for.

Thanks a ton.


Hear No Evil

My parents knew where they were when Kennedy was assassinated and when we landed on the moon. Their parents remember hearing about Pearl Harbor.

I’ll always remember where I was when Google decided to do evil.


See the animal in it’s cage that you built
Are you sure what side you’re on
Better not look him too closely in the eye
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on
See the safety of the life you have built
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it’s all
Right where it belongs

What if everything around you
Isn’t quite as it seems
What if all the world you think you know
Is an elaborate dream
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you wanted to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afriad to see?

What if all the world’s inside of your heart
Just creations of your own
Your devils and your gods
All the living and the dead
And you really are alone
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can’t find the words
Are you hiding in the dreams?

Switching Sides

Man, I can’t wait till I can sleep on my left side again. It’s been weeks! I hurt my shoulder skiing a few weeks back and then with the tattoo… man. I wanna sleep on my left side so bad.

Flickr and Ink

I’m trying out all this crazy Flickr stuff. Pretty cool.
