Well Deserved Vacation
As I mentioned a couple of times over the past week or so, I’m off on a kayaking trip.  I’ll be away until late Friday (May 2) night, so there won’t be any updates until at least next Saturday.  I’ll be taking my new digital …

CMSimple
This is really just a quick note / reminder / suggestion / whatever for myself.  I’ve been looking for a suitable CMS for another project and came across CMSimple today.  Haven’t figured a whole lot out about it, but it looks intriguing.  Definitely have to …

The Matrix on… IMAX??
Yep, that’s what it looks like.  Apparently the next two Matrix movies—Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions—will both be shown in IMAX theaters. Imax and Warner Bros… announced that the second and third chapters of “The Matrix” trilogy… will be digitally-remastered using Imax DMR—a technology that …

Half-life 2 Info
I don’t know about you, but I always loved the game Half-Life.  Sure, it was just another FPS, but it really seemed to have a story to it that helped it flow and made it much more interesting.  Plus, it had cool expansion packs that …

Keep an Eye on the Weather…
My kayaking trip is now less than a week away.  Obviously, I’m counting down the days until it starts and I simply can’t wait.  I’m really excited to try something like this.  At the same time, I’m definitely keeping an eye on the weather to …

Kayaking, You Say?
Yep.  A little over a week from now (April 27 to May 1) I’m going to be off on a Kayaking trip.  Have I ever been kayaking?  Nope.  I’ve been canoeing, but we all know that isn’t quite the same.  So, this is going to …

Honda Accord – “Cog”
In case you haven’t heard about it or seen it, Honda has a new commercial out for the new Accord.  Lucky for us, it’s not the typical “drive down a nearly empty highway and look at the scenery” type car commercial.  No, this commercial is …

“Mothball the Airlines”
I love how the major airlines all cried wolf and claimed that 9/11 is what’s forced them to lose money and (for many of them) file for bankruptcy.  They completely gloss over the fact that they’ve been losing money for years and just try to …

What XHTML 2 Means to Us
I don’t always agree with everything Jeffery Zeldman says, but I definitely respect that he’s an authority on many web-related things and that a vast majority of what he says is spot on. Take, for instance, his recent posting about XHTML 2.  He explains how …

Screw You, Music Industry!
I’ve ranted before about the incredibly crappy behavior of the music industry, movie industry, RIAA, and in general “Big Content”.  How they’re using the internet, file-sharing, etc. as a pathetic crutch and excuse for an outdated business model. Well, Dave Farber’s “Interesting People” list had …

Bouncer killed after throwing out patron
A new law went into effect two weeks ago in New York, which bans smoking in bars and restaurants.  Good for them, I say - I wish Austin was stricter than it is.  I hate being in a smoky haze when I go out.  Anyway, …

Rumsfeld Answers Sex Questions
It seems that Esquire has a short, but rather funny piece about what it might be like if Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld answered sex questions.  One of the short ones: Dear Secretary Rumsfeld: I keep reading about something called the G-spot, but I can’t …

Return of the Matrix!
May 15 Matrix Reloaded hits the theaters.  Intellecutally, I knew this, but it didn’t really sink in to me that the date is barely a month away until reading this article.  “This article”, being one put out by Wired that mostly covers some of the …

If Fox News Covered Historical Events…
Fark (a wonderful site that I really need to visit more often) has a fantastic thread going where people are posting photoshopped images of what it might have been like had Fox News covered various historical events.  Some of the postings are a bit lame, …

The Tale of “New Girl”
I’ve read AccordianGuy’s Blog a few times, but I admit that it isn’t a regular destination on my daily websurfing circuit.  However, the posting on Boing Boing about something that happened to him is pretty incredible.  It seems that his blog saved him from making …

Top 100 April Fools Hoaxes
What else is there to say, but that the top 10 100 April Fools hoaxes are damn funny. In 1996 the Taco Bell Corporation announced that it had bought the Liberty Bell from the federal government and was renaming it the Taco Liberty Bell… …

X-Wing Vs TIE Fighter JAVA game
I usually hate JAVA-based games and applications.  Too many browser crashes and Bad Things happened in the past.  However, I’ll make an exception for something as cool as the X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter JAVA game.  Hope you have some time, because it’s darn addictive! I …

Got Game?
A really interesting new weblog, “Got Game: the future of play”, takes a look at the computer/video game industry and pretty much everything affecting it (Emerging Gaming Technologies, Emerging Social Phenomena Surrounding Games, Emergence of Games as a Societal Medium, etc.).  It’s quite an interesting …
