Dexter is going to be back on air again soon, and I'm totally amped up for the return of my favorite serial killer ;) Now that he's got a newborn son and two kids, I wonder what this new series' motif is going to be? Last time it was the battle of the family man and his inner evil, but what about now? I hope it's not anything cheesy or boring, especially involving too much story-telling involving Debra. Michael C Hall might be married to her in real life, but her character is so damn annoying. Perfect rendition of the character or just true personality? You decide...

the notorious msg - No Good Muthabitch - Lunch Money

This is what I listen to while rollin' along the neighborhood of suburban whites. Suck that, muthasucka.

Sense. This Car Makes None.

A hybrid? Okay, that's fine. A sports car? Okay, I can see it. But how the hell can it be both? This isn't a pure electric sports car like the Tesla Roadster, nor is it a stripped down, high power-to-weight ratio, coupe. It's a silly idea at Honda for a "sports hybrid", which I think in of itself is a terrible idea.

Have you ever seen a BMW M5? The e60 model? That's a proper sports sedan. It has a naturally aspirated V10, and it makes about 8-12 MPG. What you also get is 500+ hp/tq.

Lets take a look on the other side of the spectrum at the Toyota Prius. It gets about 50MPG, and is a proper hybrid. In fact, it defines the hybrid market. Specs aren't terrible either, at about 120 combined HP.

But what the hell is this Honda CRZ? It has neither the fuel efficiency of a Prius, nor the sportiness of anything more than a Corolla.

Do yourself a favor and skip thinking about this car; sportiness and fuel efficiency is not impossible, but you shouldn't have to settle for the CRZ.

My recommendation? If you like fuel economy, go with a Prius. Or a Civic, if you want to be a bit more "sporty". Want something bigger? Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Want sporty at a low price? Mazda MX-5. Don't want a convertible? Hyundai Genesis Coupe or the new Mustang. If you've got the money, spur for a 3 series coupe, MercBenz SL/SLK, or maybe even a Porsche Cayman.

Please vote for my friend's brother! He's a blind artist and would really appreciate your votes :)

Here's his website and some of his work:

Intel i7 860

I've been using this on my work computer for the past few months, and it is sooooo quick. My usual rig for posting and just surfing the web (and maybe a bit of casual photoshop/itunes/etc) is a Macbook Pro 2.4ghz 15" with 2GB RAM, basic onboard video, and the works. It's pretty zippy already, but NOTHING compares to the i7 860.

It's probably the best bang for your buck you'll ever spend; it retails for something around $250 at the time of this posting. Anyways, look into it, especially if you're thinking about updating your rig.


I loved it when I first saw it, but the closest I'll ever get is the BMW Z3 :(

Canon 60D

They're really blurring the lines between camera and camcorder. I don't think it supports autofocus while shooting 1080p, but it's getting there...

Looking for something a bit more professional? Try the Canon EOS 7D or 5DmkII. Looking for a cheaper dSLR? Try the Rebel series, including the new Rebel t2i.

I can't wait until Top Gear returns..

It's one of my favorite shows on the BBC, and the single best automotive program on television. Fifth gear doesn't even compare. Hopefully the USA version will have a shred of resemblance to the genius and interest that Top Gear UK has.

How To Argue

1. Drink Liquor.

Suppose you're at a party and some hot-shot intellectual is expounding on the economy of Peru, a subject you know nothing about. If you're drinking some health-fanatic drink like grapefruit juice, you'll hang back, afraid to display your ignorance, while the hot-shot enthralls your date. But if you drink several large shots of Jack Daniels, you?ll discover you have STRONG VIEWS about the Peruvian economy. You'll be a WEALTH of information. You'll argue forcefully, offering searing insights and possibly upsetting furniture. People will be impressed. Some may leave the room.

2. Make things up.

Suppose, in the Peruvian economy argument, you are trying to prove Peruvians are underpaid, a position you base solely on the fact that YOU are underpaid. DON'T say: "I think Peruvians are underpaid." Say: "The average Peruvian's salary in 1981 dollars adjusted for the revised tax base is $1,452.81 per annum, which is $836.07 below the mean gross poverty level." NOTE: Always make up exact figures. If an opponent asks you where you got your information, make THAT up, too. Say: "This information comes from Dr. Hovel T. Moon's study for the Buford Commission published May 9, 1982. Didn't you read it?" Say this in the same tone of voice you would use to say "You left your soiled underwear in my bath house."

3. Use meaningless but weightly-sounding words and phrases.

Memorize this list:

Let me put it this way

In terms of


Per se

As it were


So to speak

You should also memorize some Latin abbreviations such as "Q.E.D.," "e.g.," and "i.e." These are all short for "I speak Latin, and you do not." Here's how to use these words and phrases. Suppose you want to say: "Peruvians would like to order appetizers more often, but they don't have enough money." You never win arguments talking like that. But you WILL win if you say: "Let me put it this way. In terms of appetizers vis-a-vis Peruvians qua Peruvians, they would like to order them more often, so to speak, but they do not have enough money per se, as it were. Q.E.D." Only a fool would challenge that statement.

4. Use snappy and irrelevant comebacks.

You need an arsenal of all-purpose irrelevent phrases to fire back at your opponents when they make valid points. The best are:

You're begging the question.

You're being defensive.

Don't compare apples and oranges.

What are your parameters?

This last one is especially valuable. Nobody, other than mathematicians, has the vaguest idea what 'parameters' means. Here's how to use your comebacks: You say "As Abraham Lincoln said in 1873…" Your opponents says "Lincoln died in 1865? You say "You're begging the question."


You say "Liberians, like most Asians…" Your opponent says "Liberia is in Africa." You say "You're being defensive."

5. Compare your opponent to Joseph Stalin.

This is your heavy artillery, for when your opponent is obviously right and you are spectacularly wrong. Bring Stalin up subtly. Say: "That sounds suspiciously like something Joseph Stalin might say." Remember that this is the alternative of last resort; it tend to close all options of retreat.

Keep these basic principles in mind, and you will find it easy (and perhaps even entertaining) to
out-argue anybody.

Not sure how to explain this, but pretty interesting and made me lol

Thinking about buying an iPad

I was really thinking about buying an iPad, but here's a few reasons why I don't have one already:

1) I already own a laptop. I can take it anywhere, it gets great battery life, and it's more powerful.

2) I already have an iPod touch. I can use it to play games listen to music portably, and it has similar touch-screen gesture features. Sure, probably not as versatile as an iPad, but it'll work.

3) I don't have such a huge chunk of money that I can't wait to spend. iPad ain't cheap, and even though I can afford it I have other things I'd rather have.

If you're looking for an iPad and you want to buy one, why not buy from the link to the left ;) It helps me get a referral fee at no cost to you!

I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

One thing kids like is to be tricked.  For instance, I was going
to take my nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old
burned-out warehouse. "Oh no," I said, "Disneyland burned down."

If you lived in the Dark Ages and you were a catapult operator, I
bet the most common question people would ask is, "Can't you make it
shoot farther?"  "No, I'm sorry.  That's as far as it shoots."

Final post before bed!

So, if you have a kid on the way to college, or you're en route to those ivied precincts yourself, what can you do to protect your checkbook?

  • First things first: As soon as the bookstore puts the next semester's texts on the shelves, pay the place a visit. Note all the required texts, and write down their ISBNs. The ISBN is a number that appears on the copyright page, usually on the reverse side of the title page. It's unique to each specific edition of a book. Knowing this number will ensure that you get the correct edition.
  • Next, the path of least resistance is to check or a similar site. Enter an ISBN in the search function and it will bring up the correct textbook. Buy used. It's much cheaper. As we've seen, even though new prices are less than you'll pay in the bookstore, even at Amazon they're out of reason.
  • If you don't want to own these objects (and really, why shoulda freshman comp text collect dust on your bookshelf from now until you die?), do a search for "textbook rental." The book in question can be borrowed for a semester from for less than $30.
  • Speaking of borrowing, check the campus library. Often faculty members put textbooks on reserve. Even though you can't take it home, few textbook reading assignments require more than an hour or two.

If you bought the book, resell it at the end of the semester. Check online for resale opportunities that will return more than the campus bookstore will pay you.

Remember that you can resell the book on Amazon, possibly for more than you could get on campus. Enter the ISBN, check the amounts people are getting, and compare with the figure the bookstore is offering. Don't stop at Amazon; textbook renters often buy used books, as do other marketers. Search for "buy textbooks" to bring up a variety of sites. Sell to the highest bidder.

Oh, I'm getting all worked up over this. It makes me so angry! The textbook business, which ought to be an altruistic endeavor, has turned into industrial exploitation of a captive audience, made even more inexcusable by the buyers' youth and financial naïveté.

If you're a kid, don't put up with it.

If you're the parent of a new college student, teach your student where to find textbooks at reasonable prices, and help them find ways to get supplies from sellers that don't steal from them.

Walk-around 40D and lens. Taken in a makeshift lightbox. Gotta love that L lens' red stripe.

I still haven't bought a filter for it, mainly because a 77mm B+W filter costs over $70. Insane price to play, but fairly justified considering the lens itself is $1,200.

We know we don't have to look pulled together when we go to Pilates class, but as long as we're paying so blessed much for use of the equipment, we might as well dress ourselves up a bit. This very hip Gaiam Metro Gym Bag (Green)
($42) is made of rice bag and jean material that has been gently used (better to make us look like we never miss a workout). They're sewn by the girls at Daughters NGO, a group in Cambodia that helps young women leave brothels. As if you weren't already sold, the proceeds from the purchase of the bag

Kinda like an iPad, but without all the fun.


Nooka Zub Zirc Watch
Finally: A nice-looking Nooka with a face that's actually readable. Taking cues from its unique perspective on time telling, the Nooka Zub Zirc Watch ($130) sports a familiar wheel of 12 dots to denote the hour, a simple bar for the minutes, a small window to count the seconds, alarm and chronograph modes, and a 20mm polyurethane band in your choice of six colors. Pick the color that matches your favorite attire, buy a few to mix-n-match, or buy all six and wear them up your atrophied arm like Swatch watches from the 80s.
