Kayaking Gear List
Seeing as I’ll be leaving on a kayaking trip tomorrow, I figured I’d throw up a kayaking gear list.  This should also be useful as a camping or backpacking gear list, for the most part.  Hopefully some other people can find this useful if they …

Accidents that Don’t Have to Happen
I found out today that my cousin just cut off his thumb a few days ago.  He was using a chopsaw on very thick lumber, and there was evidently a knot in the center of it, and the blade hit it, jerked the wood, and …

My Music
Well, it only took a full two days, and I do mean full, but my cd collection (minus 16 discs that I can’t find) is finally imported into iTunes.  3238 songs, 8.5 days, and 11.65 GB worth of music.  That’s almost obscene.  It definitely puts …

Wierd Al’s Parents Found Dead
It’s a sad story, that could happen to anyone elderly, really.  Weird Al’s parents, in their eighties, apparently died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a wood burning stove, and had accidentally left the flue closed.  Sorry, Al.  At least they lived to see their grandchild …

John Woo and… Metroid?
Word on the street (well, okay, it’s actually on websites, not on the street) is that legendary director John Woo has optioned the rights to make a movie based on the video game series “Metroid”.  I never really got into the Metroid games primarily, I …

Gimme my Gmail!
The recent “Gmail” announcement was touched on in one of Derek’s recent posts (and comments).  Contrary to initial speculation, Google’s forthcoming entry into the “free email” arena is for real.  No, seriously.  If you don’t believe me, take it from Google employee Kevin Fox.  Fox …

American Express has launched a new format of commercial.  Five minutes long.  And they’re not showing them on tv.  As Jon Stewart put it last night, “because if there’s one thing that people are saying about commercials, it’s, “why can’t they be longer?”, and “I …
