it’s funny cuz it actually messes with color blind folks… e.g. andy

a few pics i took with my camera (droid x) during the la galaxy v. red bulls soccer game

interesting location for a stadium — on csu dominguez hills‘ campus (yea i didn’t know it ever existed either). the campus itself is jammed in a residential area, makin’ it a pain to park for the game…

overall, i’d go to the home depot center again (if i didn’t have to drive). we sat right behind the angel city brigade. a ruckus group of fans with elaborate chants… best one was this (sung in the tune of “oh my darling, clementine“):

who’s your father?
who’s your father?
who’s your father, referee?
you don’t have one, you don’t have one
you’re a bastard, referee!

slightly larger panoramic shots here and here

some hip-hop for a friday…

such an epic video… i just hope no one starts referring to this song as “the facebook movie song”

kanye west – power

jay-z/jimi hendrix mashup – 99 problems and voodoo child

phoenix put on a pretty bomb show at sdsu’s open air theatre… i swear they had a different lighting setup for each song

neon indian opened for them — a lot of random sounds layered on top of each other… they output a TON of bass in some of their songs… i swear they hit the brown note a few times. anyway, i wasn’t much of a fan…

here are a few vids and pics i took with my phone. i didn’t realize til the last song that the camcorder feature had a CONCERT setting, which prevents microphone distortion and capturing loud music videos.

again, thanks to sam the cooking guy

Mac: "Yeah, well you need to jazz it up you know. Make it pop!"

Dear Chase,
I feel like I can call you Chase because you and me are so much alike. I would love to meet you someday. It would be great to have a catch. I know I can’t throw as fast as you, but I think you would be impressed by my speed. I love you hair. You run fast. Did you have a good relationship with your father? Me neither. These are all things we can talk about. And more. I know you have not been getting my letters because I know you would write back if you did. And I hope you write back this time and we get to be good friends. I’m sure our relationship would be a real home run.

so i’ve had this long-standing issue with my host, 1and1, where i wasn’t able to install plugins or upgrade the wordpress software to the latest and greatest version…

this really ticked me off because i would have to do plugin updates manually (upload via ftp) and the newest wordpress 3.x didn’t want to upgrade at all (i’d get server errors)

so i finally consulted google and was able to find a solution — apparently it has bothered other people!

If you are a 1and1.com user and are having problems getting the auto upgrade to work (for both the core and plugins), here’s the fix.

Add the following line to your .htaccess file (in the root directory of your WP install):

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

as soon as i updated the .htaccess file, i was able to upgrade plugins and even wordpress itself!

i was even able to install the WPtouch plugin through my phone! that’s sick.

happy.

…only by a few days (hopefully)

so rob predicted way back when (6/23/10) that the padres would clinch a greater-than-.500 record on 9/9/10 against the giants

it woulda happened too… if it wasn’t for the padres’ 10-game skid… tho even after a 10-game losing streak, the padres held onto first place — can’t say we didn’t give the giants a chance…

it’s been a while since i’ve been a stats nerd, so here we go…
