Samsung BlackJack

I didn't like Danny's phone because I thought the volume of the calls weren't very loud and the ring tone was very soft. However, I've been reading up on the BlackJack and it's a lot of bang for the buck. I could have purchased my K790a however, there's no warranty and no returns. Even SE won't warranty their own product if you purchase it from their website, how #$%#$%$ retarded is that???

So I went ahead and got the Blackjack since the Wii wasn't available! hahahaah....
It's very different than a regular phone and there's a lot of features and getting use to buttons that I've never used before. The nice feature is that it has 3G technology which means it's FAST! The phone is 1.3mp which is OK. I'm still trying to figure out the email feature.
And this global warming sucks big time. It's snowing, hailing, freezing, lightning and thunder, power shortages, and ice everywhere is just terrible for business!!!
Happy Holidays!

New Balance Zip

I needed a new pair of sneaks and these were cool. It's not really brown as it's bronze. They're extremely comfy and cushiony. I was told that these were limited editions. Check em out, I guess they come in a variety of colors!



I'm sure some of you have used Phiten and swear by it. Neil recently fell on his ass and we happened to walk by the Phiten store in downtown Seattle. They were extremely helpful and taped a lot of titanium G on Neil's back to relief pain.

I snagged a few dots and placed it on my wrist pulse points and it helped with my carpel tunnel issues.

They also have Aqua Gold and water and lotion and everything you can imagine that has gone through the Phiten process. I got a few socks that's suppose to help alleviate being on your feet all day long.

I'll keep you posted as to the results.

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!

You know my name

I DL Chris Cornell's opening song for Casino Royale. It sounds really good turned up LOUD on my iPod in my Yaris.

Mash Up Xanadu

I was ready someone's blog recently that a local bar was throwing a DJ event of Mash ups. This got me thinking as I was driving home that the earliest memory of a mash up was of Gene Kelly with ONJ in Xanadu. He was from the 50s and she was from the 80s and they were both singing a song each from their era and as it progressed, the 2 songs combined together to become one song.

I couldn't find it on YouTube but here's the last musical scene. And if you pay careful attention to the fashion, it's what HOT now. High boots, the color purple, animal print, flowy Muse clothing....Ahh! Nostalgia...

Happy Feet

Saw an afternoon matinee of Happy Feet with a theater full of kids and their parents. The only thing irritating was Robin Williams playing duo roles. He's funny, I like him, but he can be just a bit over the top! The music and dancing was a big hit with the kids! I looked around the theater a few times and children standing up dancing or bobbing their kids and giggling a lot. There were a few scenes probably too intense for kids but overall, it was cute.

Sony Ericsson

I went to watch Casino Royale again last night with Danny and Ivy. It was just as good as the first time and things made more sense during the second viewing because the movie does has a lot of plots. Reminds me a lot of The Bourne Franchise.
Perhaps it was the dinner last night, but I had a lot of random dreams blending into each other all night long.
But back to the SE. Obviously, Sony owns Columbia which made Casino Royale, hence every computer in the movie was a VAIO and every time they showed the phone, Sony Ericsson was featured prominantly across the entire movie screen! Self promotion every few minutes. If Sony made watches, I'm sure Bond wouldn't have been wearing an Omega!

So this is the K790a/ K800i phone. Of course, there's no GPS. Silver Ltd Edition. If anyone of you see it around the net for sale, feel free to notify me as I' ve decided that my Motorola SlVR replacement sucks ass.

And this is the M600 e-mail (Blackberry) Vesper Lynd used in the movie.

Casino Royale

Who needs Brosnan when you have Craig. This was by far, the best and freshest Bond in years. You can't compare him to Sean Connery but he kicks Roger Moore's ass!

The moview was over 2 hours but I'll go see it again and will probably buy it on DVD. Why? There was great action, great acting, Bond one liners, and the best part, in my opinion, is the human factor so lacking in the Bond films I grew up with.

Watching Casino Royale, I couldn't help but think how the fight scenes in Moore-Dalton-Brosnan movies were really about gadgetry and no one really gets hurt. Whereas, the fight scenes here are a bit brutal and not a single gadget and I didn't miss the scene of Q demonstrating all the gadgets Bond would end up using to get him out of a bind. In fact, the only gadget I wanted was his cell phone! Remember the K790a SE phone I've been wanting for months? It's the limited edition version in Silver. Kickass. And as difficult as it is to find the K790a in Brown, where the *$U)$#%U am I gonna find it in Silver?

I hope Daniel Craig sticks around for a few more and we see more of the new Bond! I give this 9 of out 10 stars. Why not 10? The movie was a bit too long and what's up with the stupid token old Chinese woman who didn't have a single line? Why bother?

I'm sick again

I don't think that AIRBORNE stuff works. I'm fizzling it a few times a day to help get rid of this head cold. It's not working! I'm coughing, wheezing, headache, stuff nose, so you can't sleep!

Nothing some DayQuil and NightQuil can't take care of but it's going on too long!

Less than a month before I see y'all locals again for Pearl Jam and U2. I could care less about PJ at this point and U2 NEVER dissappoints! They will rock. Anyone seen the new video they did with Green Day?

Weekend flicks

Took Hiram's recommendation and the theater was packed! There were some serious over the top scenes that will become classic! Then there were some really stupid ones.

Saw Saw III over the weekend. I don't know why Neil makes me watch these stupid movies. The first one was good like watching SCREAM. It was original and unexpected. Then we watched the 2nd one it was just whatever. Then I had to sit through this one and it was simply idiotic. I mean the premise is the same, there were some interesting scenes but overall, it was really a waste of my time.
