wow...

just saw the movie "Requiem for a Dream" on Hulu.

absolutely amazing movie. Really good acting. Incredibly shocking. Definitely not for kids, but almost a must see for teenage kids who are thinking about trying their first dose of drugs to escape from some sort of pain.

man... i'm still a little on edge... not sure i'll be able to go to sleep tonight.

Had a great time building a Nintendo DS cake with Neo. This was no ordinary cake.

this is indeed very scary:


I am very concerned about hyper-inflation... and the very human reaction that will come after. If it happens, people will be ready to blame, even though this seems very predictable to me.

For anybody that wants to get as worried as I am, read about the Weimar Republic.

I really like my T-Mobile G1 Google phone.  It has been working really well for me.

I'm making this post from it :)

And this is how your first amendment rights are destroyed:

People... this is too important. The internet cannot be taken over by corporations who control what is allowed to go on the internet... that is precisely the reason it flourishes while other forms of absolutely controlled media (such as print, radio, tv) are dying!!! This is too important.

And the corporations want it bad enough to try and get senators like Feinstein to sneak it into a bill that is on its way to passage and has nothing to do with net-neutrality. They don't want a debate on the issue. They don't want it to be transparent. They don't want the public to even know it happened.

Don't let this happen. Be opposed to any legislation that allows internet service providers to filter traffic of their choosing. Take notice when senators try to sneak in legislation like this and spread the word. When they come to your town hall meetings, ask them why they would do such a thing instead of allowing it to be debated by the people.

We've had some pretty good Superbowl games in the last few years!

I started out pulling for the Steelers. But after seeing how the Cardinals refused to give up, I started pulling for them. Man, just a little different clock strategy and it would have been theirs.

And in terms of commercials, my favorite is still the e-trade golfing baby. I'm not sure if this was technically a "Superbowl commercial"... but I like it.
