God

Remember when I was so excited about the iPhone? Jeez. I feel so old now.

I almost did it...

I almost went one whole year without a single post.

If you enjoy this blog you should subscribe via RSS--I feel bad if anyone is taking the time to type out this address only to find this post.

But, Google Reader is pretty awesome. For the last six months I haven't really been actually going to the websites I like. I just go to this one website. It also works well--like crushing obsession well on my iPhone.

Can This Blog Go On?

Or rather, should it?

For at least one summer, maybe longer

I thought people were saying "artistic" when they said "autistic" and "old timers" when they said "Alzheimer's."

Give me that Nokia E70!

I never thought I'd EVER be saying this, but I think I want a NOKIA! I used to have a NOKIA long ago... back when cell phones were novelty items and weighed as much as bricks. But, I think I really want this NOKIA E70. What?

That's right kind reader. Once I read this little thing I've linked below (thanks, L!) I feel so much better that MyPhone doesn't have to be an iPhone!

Read it!

I Shouldn't Have... No I Really Shouldn't Have...

...touched that iPhone. I shouldn't have looked at the internet with it. I should have resisted turning the thing on it's side... I should have never flipped through the photos. I should have never, never, never touched it because I know I don't want it...

...I don't want it right now. It's better to wait. It's prudent to wait. Apple is bad with first generation things. I know that. I know about the limitations of the edge network. I know the battery life foible. I know that it's about $400 more than a really expensive phone. Do I even make enough calls to justify $600? Can the cost be quantified in calls alone? What about freakin' directions and crap? See? I should have NEVER touched it! God!

And yet...

I need a new phone. I need a new iPhone. Now every phone I see looks dumb and lame. But not as dumb and lame as MyPhone, the free jalopy that came with my service that doesn't even have a camera... that has a calendar as a major feature. Well, it is nice to know what day it is.

Do you know what else MyPhone DOESN'T do? It doesn't show your friend's face when they call. It also DOESN'T have a speakerphone. And, you can't SEE your voicemail on it either. And while you CAN go on the internet with it, it sucks. It doesn't looks like the REAL internet. God. Furthermore, I hate that stupid iPhone song. I hate it. I can't get it out of my head. Can a song be smug? I think so!

Do you like hip-hop?

If you do like hip-hop, you might want to check out this record. I think it's easily the best rap release of the year. Sure the lyrics are 100% egotistical bullshit--it is called "Jesus Price Superstar" after all, but the sampling, rhymes, and beats are sublime.

I still maintain

I still maintain this blog and I still maintain that this song is one of the best ever written.

Bruce Springsteen, "Born to Run"

It's so subversive. It's still hard for me to imagine that New Jersey chose this as their state's anthem. But, I've never lived in New Jersey so what do I know.

After the Cheese Rush

Last Sunday, that's right--Super bowl Sunday, after the party peeps went home, I checked in on something that I believe was made for me. So perfect it scares me:




That's right--I watched the whole thing!

Couldn't look away!

Well, You Wanna Woo-WOOOOO!

Bay area, I still miss ya. Note the very end of this video that you've seen a billion times where that Camero swerves, blows the stop sign.... How fast are they going?

Ahhh... the wild Oakland west.

Update! Quick Question

Should we just blame Conor Oberst for all these wacky-bad Emo bands? Or are there other guilty parties? I feel like Robert Smith is culpable but I have a hard time blaming him for anything other than Galore.

Further, how come they all sound the same? Like they're all from the same town in Nebraska. OMAHA*, I believe they call it.

My List of Wacky-bad Emo bands

Placebo
My Chemical Romance
Fall Out Boy
AFI (what does this stand for?)
30 Seconds to Mars


I am just curious as to whom I should address my letter-writing campaign.

*I thought it was Lincoln, but a stringer informs me it's Omaha, dummy. Whatever. I was close! This ain't the AP and shit!

Phone's for You

Normally I don't care too much about gadgets--they're cool and all, but you know in the end, who really cares. I have an iPod, but a problem invaded it and now it doesn't work, doesn't pull up any of my precious songs. It remains a useless monument to a bygone era--that era being early 2005-late 2005. Thanks, Apple!

Anyway, today I took a look at the new iPhone and I am surprised to say that I really, really must have one of those.

Not that I spend a whole lot of time texting, surfing the internet remotely, or watching videos on my iPod (see above). I also don't like the term, "handheld device." But, tantalized by the opportunity to do all of the above and more (you can do conference calls and it has a speaker phone!*) stuff in one handy little contraption, and I have to admit that I'm lead by the nose! Especially when I was considering buying a new iPod... why not have it all? Even though I recently acquired (thanks, Hamlice!) a similar piece of Apple mechanics that broke, no, DIED only months after it was broughten to me.



P.S. Children of Men is really good. You should go see it.

*I'm still impressed by this kind of technology. Ever since the 7th grade.
