‘ve had some pretty awesome New Years Eve’s. Last year I was with close friends at a great house party, the year before we were at Kells. This year we decided to try out Pioneer Courthouse Square–big mistake! It sucked.
I was cruising The Drudge Report for some brain relief after five hours of focus and came upon this article on creating synthetic life forms. The article is about a scientist named Craig Venter who is trying to create life from scratch. Craig’s credentials are pretty good. Previously he helped sequence the first privately-held map… Continue reading The Spark That Creates Life
Just a quick note to point out that Google is not your aunt May who bakes you muffins and tucks you in when you’re sick.

We started out at the Doug Fir, where we scored a nice corner booth. We drank and ate ourselves into good feelings and charged… Continue reading Super Furry Animals
I try to stay up on my Internet meme, but I simply can’t catch it all. Captain Dan Broschart dropped a doozy on me the other day after I probably said something boring and repetitive to him in a chat. That doozy was "O RLY?" [See Definition of O RLY?]Thus began a new minor obsession… Continue reading O RLY?
I have to publish this video of US President George Bush reaching a locked door at a press conference in China. Bush looks so embarrasingly sad in this. My pal Ala mentioned that he should have people taking better care of him. I agree, the poor bastard had to be humilated, you can actually… Continue reading Bush Locked Door Video – Bush Gets Locked In China
