Shelfari

Spent some time yesterday trolling a new site I discovered: Shelfari. I went ahead and signed up and put in as many books as I could. A link to my shelf is: http://www.shelfari.com/thenewuniverse/shelf Check it out – sign up and…

The Touch Free Car Wash

I wish I’d invented this. I mean, it’s a fantastic scam and has to be hugely profitable. The concept: pull your car into a car wash where water and soap is sprayed at it. No ‘harsh and abrasive’ thingies whipping…

Upgrade

I upgraded WordPress tonight – boy was that a HUGE mistake. 🙁 It doesn’t work in Firefox (the back end stuff) at all on my Mac and Safari it works a little bit. BLEH!

Infinity Inc.

Talking Murloc Plushie

If you like the World of Warcraft, you probably hate Murlocs. I mean, they gang up on you, they run away when you’re trying to kill one and come back with a couple more in tow. All of em say…

Batman: Gotham Knight

Well. What can I say about this other than it is unbelievable! I picked it up tonight on the way home from work and manoman – this kicks ass! This is probably the best animated Batman since Batman: The Animated…

Independence Day

In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and…
