[Short Blog] American Idol

My favorite line from the show last night:

I have 6 words for you: one of the best performances of the night.

Oh American Idol, I heart you.

Here is that performance. You know it’s good when the guy who wrote the song leads the standing-o.


Netflix v. Blockbuster

Let’s face it, if you dont want to pay for cable, having movies deliverd to your door step is awesome. So, who should be delivering them.

Until now I have been a Blockbuster guy. This is why. With Blockbuster, I used to be able to have my movies shipped to my house, exchange them for in-store movies, and simultaneously have my next two movies shipped out to me. The in-store exchange was the bonus. Then, suddenly, Blockbuster decided to change their system. Now when you exchange in-store, those movies count towards your “x” at a time, so your new movies don’t get shipped until you return the store ones. This equals lame.

I checked out Netflix and found that I can get the same thing, 2 movies unlimited returns each month, for $3 cheaper, and I can download some movies and shows on my computer or xbox 360. This equals awesome.

Blockbuster is trying though. They are working with Tivo to get on demand available and also have a Tivo like box they produce, but you still have to pay for it.

Kind-of long story short, I made the switch and now I’m a flixer. Guten tag.

$2,050 Car

I know its been a while since I posted, but lately I’ve found that I post blogs in my head and just think about them, and while thinking about them, simultaneously decide not to post it on my actual blog. Anywho, I thought I would get something up so you didn’t abandon me forever.

Today in Mumbai, India, Tata motors is planning to launch its new nano car. I’m not sure what the model is actually called, so it shall be named $2,050 car hence forth for all time.

Some information about the car: There are no airbags, it does not have powersteering, and they don’t plan to bring it to the U.S.

Some comments on the information about the car: An airbag will not save you in this car, so it’s no use whining about it, and if you think the steering will be too hard for your whittle arms in a nano-car, well…

Dear and What #1

A new blog vein of random information and maybe some good links…

Dear daylight savings, I don’t know who you are, but you need to stop what you are doing.

What’s happening: If you are into freelance work or can create logo’s, un-coded websites, etc. fairly easy, check out CrowdSpring when you get a chance. You might be able to make a few extra bucks (and yes I will take a commission for pointing that out to you).

Uh, Can You Do That?

This is a repost of a friend of mine who found this. Apparantely, they are all out of stock on the addidas website. Here is the picutre and quote from his website http://www.theunitedfreestatesofamerica.com/.

Adidas has recently released a new hat with the following description:

Show your love for the former USSR during training time in this adidas Marx A-Flex Russia cap, featuring a six-panel low-crown fit, deep pre-curved brim, an Always Coolâ„¢ sweatband to wick away the moisture, and a hammer-and-sickle graphic.



Uh, Sweet

First of all, if you haven’t read the post before this on Twitter, read it, because that is how I get awesome stuff like this post. This may be the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. Watch this video, it will blow your mind.
