Each of these t-shirts would be great for my friend Brett when he goes to the Around the Corner Bar:

All available from T-shirt Hell. Here's an odd thing: the Entertainment Software Ratings Board is apparently suing for copyright infringement... and they're not suing T-shirt Hell, they're suing a gaming blog that wrote about them.

In other news, perhaps more useful to my female readers: I've been informed that the phrase "just like my vagina" is the new "that's what she said". Go. Use it.

American Idol 2008 Week 14: Finale
Wednesday, 2008 May 21 - 6:55 pm
So here it is, the final competition. It almost doesn't matter how they sing any more; it's really down to popularity. So even before watching them, I predict David Archuleta will win, even though David Cook deserves it more.

That's What She Said
Tuesday, 2008 May 20 - 3:59 pm
I've had some pretty good "that's what she said" interjections over the last, oh, twenty years or so. So as you can imagine, I get a lot of enjoyment watching "The Office". Someone who's just as off-kilter as I am has compiled a collection.

Enjoy. (That's what she said.)

Whatchew Been Up To? (Redux)
Saturday, 2008 May 17 - 4:04 pm
It's been so long since I've posted anything about myself, "whatchew been up to" is, I suppose, a legitimate question now. Unlike before.

New iPhone "Imminent"
Monday, 2008 May 12 - 12:32 pm
Web sites are abuzz with the rumor that a new iPhone is imminent. The two latest signs:
  • The iPhone is out of stock in Apple stores all over the world, and the online store lists it as "currently unavailable".
  • AT&T has a new option for iPhone Black on its customer phone selection web page; this matches rumors that the new iPhone will have a black plastic backing instead of its current aluminum one.
Apple often makes product announcements on Tuesdays. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

Brooke went out in tears last week. This week: rock and roll hall of fame songs... that's right, more golden oldies.

Obama Wins North Carolina
Tuesday, 2008 May 6 - 7:21 pm
It looks like Obama will win the North Carolina Democratic primary handily. With 5% of precincts reporting so far, Obama is taking 65% of the popular vote. This doesn't surprise me in the least, as nearly every Democrat I know here is an Obama supporter.

Hillary looks to be leading in Indiana, though there's a geographic split in the state that's skewing the early results. The final results are likely to be close. In all, today amounts to a win for Obama; with each Obama victory (or near-victory), he moves closer to eliminating Clinton's case for staying in the race.

When Amy and I went to vote today, we couldn't help but feel a little bit of awe at the prospect of voting for the first African-American president in U.S. history... and this, in the heart of the deep South, the home of Jesse Helms. Amazing.

We might have to go through with this thing after all
Friday, 2008 May 2 - 5:28 pm
Flush the bombers, get the subs in launch mode. The on-again, off-again Microsoft-Yahoo merger might be on again.

A lot has already been written about the proposed merger, and my overall take is that most business guys seem to think it's a great idea, and most technology guys seem to think it's a terrible idea. Both arguments have some merit. I figured I'd take a little time to explore the pros and cons.
