All The Things I Saw And Didn't Share

As some of my BFFs know, I have been retardedly busy lately. I read all my fave blogs and occasionally comment, but work has been just absolutely ridiculous. So I'm writing this weekend to apprise you, much as I did a few weeks back, of things I wanted to talk about but have been unable to, due to schedule constraints.

Really, and truly, this is a bunch of horseshit, because I could make time if I wanted to, and I really should, because what's the point of life if I'm not making time for the things I like doing? So I promise to try to make a commitment to myself to make more me-time in the future. And if you happen to reap the benefits of said me-time, so be it. And if you don't give a crap at all about any of this, which is totally understandable, that's fine too, because I am perfectly aware that the world doesn't revolve around me, blah blah blah.

So, let's get started.

Faces In Places - this blog is great. Just pictures of random stuff that happens to look like faces. Some of them are asinine, some of them are brilliant.

You already know about the free mustache rides.

The One Laptop Per Child project's XO laptop is making quite a splash in the world, and now you have an opportunity to do something good for a child, as well as procure yourself the coolest new gadget going. Being that I am a nerd gadget freak and also have recently discovered a philanthropic side of myself, the Give 1 Get 1 program is right up my alley. I like the idea that I will be helping some impoverished child in another country become a little more geeky and will be rewarded for my generosity in kind with said gadget. Whatever, I'm a dork, it's still nicer than anything you did this week.

Gizmodo reports on the Art Lebedev remote that's coming out. For those who don't know, Art Lebedev makes normal computer/home entertainment-type stuff, but really expensive and with really slick design/looks. This thing however, reminds me of those candy dots stuck on paper (you have to click the link for that to make any sense). Which are totally rad in their own right, but not as a medium for controlling a home theater. They're better for like, riding your bike around the neighborhood at the beach and biting off while avoiding the little paper flakes that invariably get stuck on them when you eat them. And then maybe you run into a girl you like, and you have rainbow mouth, with paper stuck to your lips, and she assumes you're a retard on acid.

BLADE RUNNER! BLADE RUNNER! BLADE RUNNER!

Probably my all-time favorite movie, and that's saying something, Blade Runner is being re-released to theaters and with the subtitle "The Final Cut". Needless to say, I almost pooped in my pants when I heard about this, and completely gives me something to look forward to, other than my birthday, and seeing Coheed and Cambria in November. If you don't like Blade Runner, I will fight you. Also, you may have mental problems, and should consult a doctor.

That's all I got for now. I will try to write more frequently, as these built-up explosions don't help any of us.

Now, to enjoy some delicious whiskey. I surfed today, in some sick-ass storm waves, and had my ass handed to me, but also snuck a few hits in against Poseidon in the process. Nothing gets me feeling more alive than being absolutely brutalized by nature and then drinking lots of whiskey.

Push Brooms For Everyone!

I know, it's been like, almost two full weeks since I said anything at all. Sorry. Life sucks, what can I say.

BUT!

There's hope.

Look at THIS!

I feel like when I find little things like this, it makes my life that much more worth living.

And so many nerdy things have happened in the world, I don't even know where to start. Perhaps this weekend, I will force myself to make a few posts. In the meantime, enjoy what might be the sweetest blog ever.
