Is This Me?

It's the new Avatars that Xbox makes you create when they released their new system update yesterday.

What do you think? The choices are a little limited right now. I may need to make my skin darker, but I think I'm pretty close. My hair is not quite that long, but it's the closest I could get.

Also, please excuse the queer pose, as that's the only pose those things have.

Selling stuff on Ebay...

Exciting Stuff.

Here's a LINK to my first item I'm trying to sell on Ebay. 120 GB Hard Drive for the 360.

Started it last night at $.99 (not sure that was a good move as it was the default) and it's moving up pretty quickly.

Editors Note: Ended up selling for $145.50. Not too bad. Now I'm waiting for his "e-check" to clear before I send it.

Started my next auction...same item, soon after it ended. Going good soo far. Had some pretty dumb questions though. If I say I only ship to the US on the auction, why do you email me asking if I will ship to Brazil? I may do it, but outrageously overcharge him, just on principle. The "buy it now" price is pretty prominent on there, why do you email me asking how much it is? Bah....must be new to Ebay.

Xbox 360 on the Fritz

Again. At least I got to finish Gears 2, which was excellent by the way.

Fuck you Microsoft for making a shitty system.

The Badger Song

So far, this is the greatest thing I've seen all week, and that's even with me playing Gears of War 2 most of the week.

Tell me what you think of this video.

By the way, if you hear me randomly blurt out, "Mushroom! Mushroom!", you know where it came from.

You've been warned.

I Slapped It a Couple of Times....

like I had to tell it twice, and it came back to life.

Thanks to this blog post and the comments that followed it. I was on the verge of opening up the iPod and tinkering with it and seeing if I could buy a new 1.8" hard drive when I read about the slap method. I took a shot as it's already out of warranty and BOOM, POW, SURPRISE! it's working.

Fucking Awesome.

Let's see how long this lasts....

...Apparently not long. I can navigate the menus, but it won't play anything. Reset Time.

And it works....for now. Let's see what happens when I take it home and sync it.

You need to see this if you liked Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels and Snatch. It's another good British Crime Thriller. It's also pretty freaking funny.

Also, from the movie, comes this song, Rock and Roll Queen from The Subways. It's featured pretty prominently in the movie, and in the trailers (which oddly enough, I haven't seen in a while). Anyways, here's the video I found on Youtube. I'm off to go look for the entire album. Not sure if I go with the movie soundtrack, or their album.

After a little research, it turns out I have this song already. Twice in fact, once from The O.C. Mix 5 and the other one is from an Ultimate fan made O.C. mix. Ooops. I still may have to get their albums anyway.

Thought this was Funny

...and appropriate for today. Laugh now (or not, it's not that great)....cause you may not be able to later.

Edit: Sonuvabitch! You can't see the full picture in IE6 (it's a work computer and they won't let me update it cause of instability with some other programs) and Chrome (yea, I have this one for browsing so I don't have to update IE..get it?) without clicking on it. So click on it.

You Dumb Bitch
