The Hair, My God the Hair!

30 Nov

Look, I know it was early in the morning, but you actually went with THAT hairstyle? I mean, you got up, took a shower (I hopefully assume), stood in front of the mirror, got out a brush, combed the back part of your hair normally and then said to yourself: “You know, I think I’ll go with this really long and ugly, stringy hair out past my forehead so that it hangs down and looks really out of place.” THAT is what you thought. Really? Frankly, I wish you hadn’t even attempted to comb your hair. That way you would have an excuse not to have those intensely long, pube-resembling strands flailing all over the place. But instead, you went and tried. And in the process of trying, you failed. At life. And at hair.

Come on.

Come on.

Really?

Really?

My new best friend!!!

9 Jul

I did it. I finally fricken did it. Last night I got up the nerve to drive myself over to Microcenter and spend almost $600. On what and for why? Well, as of yesterday, all I had was a seven-year-old laptop sitting on my desk like a retarded brick – if in fact, bricks can be retarded. Can they? I mean, they really don’t have brains, but I do think that some bricks look smarter than others…

Anyway, it was a Dell 5100. A blue, heavy workhorse of a machine, and before you yell at me for some reason, I have to say that it was one of the most reliable pieces of electronic machinery that I have ever owned. I bought it in 2003 to use for college and it performed everything that I needed it to. It wrote me essays, burned me CDs, got me cheat codes for Grand Theft Auto and cruised the Internet (obviously never going onto any of the seedier sites… my computer was too high class for that). But now it is ridiculously outdated and struggles to work. It lays on my desk and just tries so hard. Its like watching your best friend die. I sit there some nights and just sing sweet lullabies to it. Holding the mouse and clicking softly as the fan whirs away.

Loudly. Like its gasping for air. Every whir one step closer to death.

I decided to put it out of its misery last night. I haven’t fully euthanized it yet, but the time is at hand. I already got the replacement for it and it has taken its place on my desk. Its black, with a subtle weave pattern on the case, has a bright LCD screen and an integrated web cam and is super fast. Now, again, before you start to yell and throw things at me for what I bought, let me just say that it was a super deal, has a ton of power and is specced very nicely.

Deep Breath. OK, here I go.

It is a Gateway. Yes, the boxes still look like the skinned remnants of the cow I grew up with and had to brutally slaughter because it held succulent meat within it, but you no longer get the satisfaction of also getting a squishy cow stress toy or a cow skin logo mug to go with your computer. Things just are not what they used to be I guess.

But its a nice looking computer and comes with some good hardware. I won’t go into it all here, but here is a link to some specs if you want to check it out for some reason. Below, you will find the unboxing pics. And yes, I was watching The Simpsons while doing this, and extra special brownie points to whoever can tell me the name of the episode that is being shown!

Ke$ha Simpsons opening

10 May

Had to post this here. I dig Ke$ha. Not entirely sure why I do (possibly because she is a durty girl), but there is just something about her that I can’t look away from. Sure her songs are pretty lame if you actually listen to the lyrics (but who the hell does that anyway when all you really want is the beat), but then along come The Simpsons to make “Tik Tok” make some sense. This is a great opening to the show and must have taken forever to do. I am really only a fan of the show up until the ninth season, but this is one of the better things I have seen them do for some time. So click the link to see the Ke$ha opening of The Simpsons in all its glory! (By the way, for those who don’t know, when there is a super long opening like this, it means the writers were probably struggling to make the actual episode an acceptable length, but couldn’t come up with anything).
