now a study in moppishness

so i watched ‘better off dead’ last night and i was surprised to see a very familiar scene…

don’t get it? well this’ll jog your memory:

i always wondered where the hell that reference came from — now i know… i still don’t get why they do it in the movie… tho it was made in a time where making fun of asians was hip and cool (like sixteen candles?)

here’s the line:

“Truly, a sight to behold. A man, beaten. The once great champ, now a study in moppishness. No longer the victory hungry stallion we’ve raced so many times before, but a pathetic, washed-up, aged ex-champion.”

i’m on to you, family guy…

test post from crunchberry

So I got this new app for my phone made by wordpress — specifically to create posts on my blackberry.

I don’t know if I’ll use it a bunch or anything but it’s pretty cool that the wp folks are looking out for non-iPhoners

So this is just a small test to see what it’s like…

If you want the app and you have a bberry, go here: http://blackberry.wordpress.org/

fun with text to voice!

so i have a blackberry tour now — it’s not as cool as the almighty iPhone, but hey… i’m not a douche

they have a good/small set of apps that can be useful — i really like how they can be run in the background (boom!)…

here’s one good review site for all things blackberry: crackberry.com

anyway, i found this awesome app called drivesafe.ly — it reads your incoming texts so you don’t have to lose your focus while driving (cuz i’m already reading, smoking, and drinking… pfft)…

not only does it read names and texts really well… it makes for some fun times.

here are a few that chaunce was sending me during work:

marsha 1

marsha 2

he sent this one when we were eatin’ pho at lunch:

wtf

geoff even got in on the action (thank god i had the app turned OFF when he sent this):

handjob mart

there’s an iPhone version coming soon… so there you go

i’m still playin’ with it… but i think i might buy it… $14 one time? not bad at all…

why do i wanna buy a lexus now…

so this is my crappy audition to be a writer for the thoracic fax machine site, captained by sarmad

it FINALLY feels like “winter” in san diego… the weather is awesome and the air is crisp

so i totally found* these guys: rodrigo y gabriela

their music is like world/acoustic/percussion… crazy strong and aggressive and then melodic

i was listening to their “live in japan” cd and heard a cover of one of my favorite songs… dave brubeck’s “take five

this song is such a great cold weather song…

enjoy:

rodrigo y gabriela – take five

dave brubeck – take five

*found is an inside joke that most of you wouldn’t get… sarmad seems to find EVERYTHING in our circle, such as shepard fairey and barack obama

**i understand if sarmad doesn’t wanna give me an author account to his site :(
