When You Say Uncle Tom.....

do you think of me?

I officially became an uncle. Should I feel excited about this, because I really don't. I'm feeling kind of ambivalent about all this. Is it wrong that I actually don't really care? (Partly cause the mom is a crazy bitch....) Maybe it takes a little bit to sink in? Maybe I have to actually see the child in person....

Funny thing is, I could of know yesterday at 5:51, if I wouldn't have left my phone on vibrate in my bag. Oh well. Hope my brother enjoys the child support payments. That should make him even more bitter when he tries to compare paychecks.

It's Alive!

Just call me Dr. Frankenstein....or you can call "Ahren" (I swear that's what his name was) at the Genius Bar (aptly named, by the way) Dr. Frankenstein. Either way, I'm happy. My iPod is up and running again. Looks like there was a loose connection inside.

I'm gonna have to start saving for a new one. I picked up the new 80 and it was thinner than my 60 I imagine the 160 gig iPod is a little thicker, but I bet it's smaller than mine.

By the way, those new Nano's are freakin tiny. I swear I have a credit card bigger than those things. Very cool.

Death in My Family

DAMMIT! Way to ruin a great night.

It died on me last night, and I think my warranty expired at the end of last year. I'm stopping by the Apple store in the Willow Bend mall on my way home tonight to see what they can do.

I'm sad, luckily I have my 1st Gen Shuffle to hold me over. God forbid I actually have to pop in a CD.

P.S. That's not my hand/picture.


I actually felt stupid for buying it yesterday, mainly because of the cause, but when I got home last night and opened it, I thought it was money well spent.

It's bigger than I thought (Yes, that's what she said...ha ha're very funny)

It's well built. Not particularly heavy, but not flimsy either. It's solid. Does not feel cheap at all.

It's cool seeing Master Chief's helmet 6 inches from your face (That's what she said!...ok that one is kinda funny)

Very Impressive

Cool thing is it comes with a slip cover, and when you put it on over the helmet, it looks like a ninja.

P.S. Seeing that I didn't take these pictures, that I took them of the interwebs, it's come to my attention (AGAIN!) that I need a digital camera. I must be the last person on earth that doesn't have one. I think my AMEX points may be put to use real soon.

God of War II

...and Penny Arcade summed up my thoughts perfectly.

Finally finished it today and couldn't have been more impressed. I can't wait until God of War 3.

The Roots at House of Blues

Going to see The Roots tonight at the House of Blues, and I'm beyond pumped. Today's pretty much a wasted day at work, as I've gotten the bare minimum done.
I've been waiting on this show for a while now, and the past 2 days have just crawled by.

It's the second time I'll be going to the House of Blues. I went about a month ago to see Shinedown (who?), but that was more about checking out the place than the music. I think I may have had a post about....or I just never finished it. Gotta check.

All I know is that they better play "The Seed", or I'll be disappointed.

Tomorrow's another day I'm looking forward to, as A&M is playing Miami on National TV, and while I'm a little nervous, I really think we can win, which will help our teams confidence and really springboard us into conference play.

Halo 3 Museum Teaser

1st Ad

2nd Ad

It's now less than 1 week from the release of Halo 3 and I'm really starting to get excited about it. Here's the two Halo 3 ads on tv right now. I'm liking them.

Jobsite Photos

Not much to talk about, so I thought I would throw up some jobsite photos.

North Elevation: Taking a picture of the northeast corner. The east side is the main entry side. You can see the entry vestibule (the part that sticks out).
Taking a picture of the west elevation. Plaster will be going above the brick. Personally, I like the color of the brick.

This is the south side of the building. This side is the side that faces Highway 121. This side will have the pool.
Taking a picture from the southwest.
That's the exterior of the building. I'll try to remember to put up some interior shots later on.

Shoot...Me...Now says I'm a Kinda Dorky High Nerd.  What are you?  Click here!

What's worse, my score on this test, or the fact that I took the time to take the test?

College Football

Cause I can't wait until tomorrow's games, first a joke.

A first grade teacher explains to her class that she
is a Texas Tech fan.
She asks her students to raise their hands if they
are Texas Tech fans too.

Not really knowing what a Texas Tech fan was, but
wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands fly into the air.

There is, however, one exception.
Susie has not gone along with the crowd.

The teacher asks her why she has decided to be
different. "Because I'm not a Texas Tech fan" she reports.

"Then," asks the teacher, "what are you?"

"I'm a TEXAS A&M fan" boasts the little girl.

The teacher asks Susie why she was a TEXAS A&M fan.

"Well, my Dad and Mom are Aggie fans, so I'm an Aggie
fan too" she responds.

"That's no reason," the teacher says. "What if your
mom was a moron, and your dad was an idiot. "What would you be then?"
the teacher asks..

Susie smiles and says, "Then I'd be a Texas Tech fan."

HAHA! tceh sucks!

Kanye West's Graduation

First off, which is the correct album cover? I do like the first one more, as it keeps the continuity going.

Early listen to the album coming out next Tuesday (which I guess would make this sorta ice cold....but then it's been leaked for about a week, so we're back to being piss warm...all depends on your point of view, eh Old Man Kenobi?)

I've got Homecoming (with Chris Martin....Coldplay guy) stuck in my head and quickly has become my favorite track. Stronger is the single you've probably already heard. I like it, but then again, i'm not quite tired of it, as I haven't listened (scratch that, don't listen) to the radio all that much. Champion is another pretty solid song, although it's got a bit in the chorus that I can see getting anyong (Hello!). The song that really caught my attention though was Big Brother, where he raps about Jay-Z. Pretty cool song. I wasn't all that impressed with Can't Tell Me Nothing. Not even the remix did anything for me on the 1st listen. We'll see what happens after a few more spins.

Looks like Kanye's got another hit on his hands. I am curious to see if his CD or 50's will sell better next week. I haven't heard anything of of 50's new one, Curtis.


Why the hell do they go bad so quickly? They last maybe, 1 day before they start to get all mushy and gross. Another day in the fridge and they start to get some sort of gray funk on them, which I would call mold, but I know that's not right.

It's almost a waste to buy them if you don't eat them that same day.

Fuck you strawberries for going bad so quickly.

"That Looks Great, but Who are the Chefs?"

That looks great, but who are the "raidiers"

Linky to the official site. Let's see how long it takes them to catch that.

Stupid 'tards.

Even More Stupider Update:

Also not circled, "Ga e 4".

More Gameday Videos

There's a Spirit video 2007:It's been changed a little for this year.

2007 Team Entrance
: I know people rip on this entrance, but I kinda like it.

We Bleed Maroon music video
: (Cause Aggies everywhere haven't heard enough about this song)

You know what, I can't believe they actually played that at the game. This belongs at the bar at closing time or some shit like that. Hopefully it was played at halftime and not before the game, although I doubt it.

Death Sentence

Don't even bother with this one. It blows donkey.

There is a hilarious montage (We need a Montage!) of Kevin Bacon shaving his head (poorly I might add) and learning to use a gun. Pathetic.

Montana State Highlights

Well, here are the highlights from the A&M game. Good luck trying to figure out what's going on with the shitty quality. God I hate it when they don't televise games.

Does Anyone Else Think...

It smells like vomit in Dave & Busters? Last night I was at the one in Dallas off of Stemmons and in the arcade, there are certain spots you walk through that just smell like somebody threw up. It's fucking gross.

As a super fun side note that I'll use on him for a while (he would always win on the N64), I kicked my brother's ass at NBA Showtime 75-74. He was the f'in Orlando Magic, and I was the Knicks (it's an older game, and they're the only team I could remember being good before the timer ran out). Intense game. Very back and forth.
