Health update

not mine..

My sister's.

She suffers from Intra-cranial Hypertension..laymans terms: she has too much spinal fluid buildup that eventually presses on her optic nerve..if not treated she could go blind.Thankfully she's being treated for it.
However getting the right treatment in a small town hospital with douchebag doctors who care more about fishing than most other a run around..a circle jerk.

stupid tech support won all the Oscars..

(yes im incensed and Im not talking about perfume or smells)

sonofa...stupid junk foreign movies

So that stupid Slumdog Millionaire won Best Picture..

IMO it's not deserved...why?

Changling and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I saw TCCBB at the theater and just saw Changling last night..

both movies were EXCELLENT....
The way they were filmed,the acting,the characters..both movies deserved more awards.

If I wanted to watch a east indian movie..I'd get Bride and Prejudice again...

Slumdog Millionaire had it's venue..The Golden Globes and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

In my opinion the Oscars should go to American movies..
and until SM was was mostly American movies.

This is the Academy Awards..filmed in L.A.
This isn't the U.N. international awards..

It probably sounds like I'm being a bit of a well something..but it's just how I feel.

my kinda station wagon

470HP,5.4L supercharged V-8
0-60MPH in 4.9seconds
Optioned out,it's near $100k..but the look on the rednecks with their loud pickups in these would be worth it.I could picture myself in the driver seat,my mom in the passenger seat,my niece and nephew in the 3rd row rear facing seat,waving at the rednecks as I fly off the line when the stoplight turns green.

Makes sense doesn't it?

Everyone (well mostly everyone) has seen display models for clothing stores..

An idea.

Have the display models actually depict what the clothes would look like in say.. a restaurant setting..standing in line at the post office,in other words..real life situations.
It would give people a better idea of how a certain outfit would look and it would influence their buying decision.

Which reminds me..there was a 1980s movie about display models..Mannequin.

Been playing Far Cry 2 for the PC for awhile now.

Graphically it's amazing,and my computer meets the minimum requirements to play it..that's a powerful game.

One of my Top 10 best movies

25th Hour

Directed by Spike Lee

Starring Edward Norton,Philip Hoffman,Rosario Dawson,Barry Pepper,Brian Cox

The 25th Hour depicts the last day of freedom for a young man before he begins serving a seven-year jail term for drug dealing. Prowling through the city until dawn with his two close male friends and his girlfriend, he is forced to re-examine his life and how he got himself into his predicament, which leads to a shocking, disturbing finale.

The finale is a tear-jerker..

The scene when Monty goes to the bathroom and looks at himself in the mirror is a good one too.

How the "bailout" should work..

First the government sends you a bat..steel or wood.

Then you recieve a photo of a banker who effed up..
Guilty or not..they're getting their kneecaps busted.
It will send a signal to the other bankers


Then the government should seize all funds from the upper echelon of the banks..down to their kid's savings accounts and trust funds (thats how bankers and senators get out of paying taxes on money..they put it in a "trust" fund)

Forgot socialized medicine..the government should focus on the health insurance companies..
Same rules apply as per the bankers that effed up..the healthcare CEOs,upper manangement..they all get their kneecaps busted.

Let a mob take care of him..I'm sure all the people that gave him money would love a few swings from a tire iron or a golf club.
Or..stick him in general population in a really nasty prison and tell the inmates that Madoff liked to diddle little kids while he stole their parent's money...

Your ideas and thoughts?

I mean why not? the government is giving away money like there is no they know something we dont?

let's give a visual representation of the bailout..

Like the Katy Perry song...Hot N Cold

"2009-02-06 20:44:05
Redoubt Volcano continues to be in a state of unrest.

Seismic activity remains elevated and consists of relatively continuous tremor that fluctuates gradually.

Nothing has been observed in clear web camera views today. The web camera is now dark for the night.

The volcano has not erupted and AVO continues to watch the volcano 24/7."

Nothing happening.

For anyone complaining about snow (up to and including The Lone Groover)

snow? want snow?

Taken in 2005

Those were taken on the backside of the house.
That is a yardstick.36 inches.The snow level is almost at the 35 inch mark.
What is the metric equivalent? some are wondering..well it's

Vista x64 Premium,DX10 and Flight Simulator X


just wow.

SLi is able to used as well..(using 2 video cards linked together to drive a single display..allows options like cranking everything up resolution wise)

looks great.

after going nuts........

I've come to realize..DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SHIT before you decide "well it says upgrading the firmware gives you the ability to boost the wireless signal strength...sounds good..shouldn't take long"..

Here I was thinking I had a standard Linksys WRT54G version 6.0 wireless router...nooooo...
I have a "neutered" router..half the RAM than other models..

After "upgrading" and flashing firmware and generally going nuts and shit ...the internet is working back in my house.

im off to bed.



I just bricked or fuXXored the Linksys WRT54G Version 6.0 router.
Turns out I have the "neutered" model..only has like 2MB of RAM..instead of the usual 4MB.

I've flashed and re-flashed the damn now I get to take it apart and short out 2 pins..
just what I wanted to do.

"All right... Where did he learn a word like pseudonym?"

I just finished watching RockNRolla with my mom..we loved it.

My family has a warped sense of humor..

The other two Guy Ritchie movies..Snatch and Lock,Stock and Two Smoking Barrels are hysterical.

Gerard Butler (SPAARTA!..that guy) plays a guy named One Two.

anywho..check it out if you like dark british/U.K. comedy movies.

Movie reviews

Eagle Eye
Shia LeBouf,Michelle Monaghan.
Good movie.I liked it.Kept up the suspense.
Can't tell you the ending..but like a M.Knight Shymalan'll see it if your looking for it.

Righteous Kill
Pacino and De Niro
Watch it.The ending just blows your mind.Another good movie.

Axis of Evil comedy tour
Funny stuff.

Ghost Town
Ricky Gervais,Tea' Leoni,Greg Kinnear
Decent movie.Ricky seems to get the same parts in different movies/TV shows.

I haven't had a chance yet to watch RockNRolla..but I will soon.

Nothing wrong so far.
Appropriate drivers have been located and installed..My Vista score is 5.0..

so the volcano has not erupted yet..
Certain items are a bit hard to find "..those will come in next week" which usually generates the response "..probably the day after the volcano erupts" and there is usually smiling or grinning.

Supplies? I'm good.
My sister? She's good.
My dad? he'll probably come over here..or I'll rush over there and help him attempt to cover his 1970s Kenworth. (it's his baby)..throw a tarp over the Jeep,and beat feet back to the house.

A lot of Alaskans lived through the 1989-1990 eruption of Mt.Redoubt..for them it's just get a few supplies and resume life as usual..with the accelerated response of getting home in case of an eruption.

Covering up all these LCD monitors and computers is going to be a bit time consuming..

I'd kill for a Panasonic laptop. water,dust and drop resistant (hard drive is shock mounted)

Couldn't find a new air filter for the van. (why a van? one might think after coming upon this blog)..quite simple really.
My brother is in a wheelchair..hence the van.

A couple of other things I should look into covering..the entertainment center,the wireless router,the DSL modem,fax machine.

Want to check out a good site about the Volcano?

In other news.
Got the AC Adapter for my toshiba laptop.Got my saitek x52 flight controllers (throttle and joystick) flying in Microsoft Flight Simulator X is a breeze.
Been playing COD4 for the PC,online. I've unlocked the 4xACOG scope for the M60 LMG..
On the 360 and PC version,I'm deadly with a ACOG'ed M60.belt-fed sniper rifle kind of.

Gotta look at paying some credit cards for Feburary.

Have a good one.
