These are the best I could find on YouTube. Left out some good, random ones that not everyone would get (like Shit Caribbean Moms Say). Check these out!
There’s more!!! Read the rest of this entry
“Within our lifetimes, we’ve marveled as biologists have managed to look at ever smaller and smaller things. And astronomers have looked further and further into the dark night sky, back in time and out in space. But maybe the most mysterious of all is neither the small nor the large: it’s us, up close. Could we even recognize ourselves, and if we did, would we know ourselves? What would we say to ourselves? What would we learn from ourselves? What would we really like to see if we could stand outside ourselves and look at us? “
In the wake of Steve Job’s death, which really still hasn’t hit me, I thought I’d share my technology history with Apple. As far as can remember I’ve had Apple computers (or back then, Macintosh) and products and I thank my parents for that. Dunno what made my dad buy us our first computer from them, but I think I’ll ask him now. RIP Steve – An Apple a day kept those nasty PC viruses away.
1995 – Macintosh LC
Great machine, did everything I could’ve dreamed back then and more. I have very fond memories of playing Oregon Trail and practicing my typing.
1999 – iMac DV (in Indigo)
This one was a hand me down from my sister when she went off to college. This was the updated version of the original imacs and around the same time that those color iBooks and the G5 were getting lots of hype as well.
2004 – iMac G5
When my iMac died, I got the newly released, fancy iMac G5. I love this computer to death and 7 years later it’s still going strong and still looks in fashion and sexy.
2004 – iPod mini
I had a blue mini after I retired my Sony Walkmen CD player. If you would have told me how Apple would’ve completely changed the music industry forever then, I woulda slapped you in the face with a fish. Really though, I would have called bullshit if you had told me that Apple would shape (and had already started) not only the music world, but the business world, and even the design world, how people look at things, what people like in marketing, what is considered sleek, out of all our associations we have today think about how many have been shaped by one company and for the most part, the vision of one man.
2006 – iPod Video
Videos too! Oh my gosh! “How do I download all these TV shows (what’s a torrent??!) so I can put them on my iPod and watch them on there!?”
2009 – iPod Touch
Got this for basically nothing with my MacBook, and then I ended up breaking it a year later 😦
2009 – MacBook Pro (not pictured above)
Going to college! Gotta get a new Mac and it has to be the new MacBook Pro.
2010 – iPod Shuffle
In between iPods I made the decision to go with the cheapest option now that I had plundered all my money away on booze and foolishness (food).
What’s next for me?
Waiting for that iPhone 5 to come out, not too impressed with the 4s as of yet…or maybe the new iPad!…or perhaps a imacquarium?
New 8tracks playlist (the fourth!) is here, ambient lovee. Time for bed.
I invite you to take a hit or two or three, play this, and scroll.
In the future people will live in house high up in the trees (above).
The people of the future will hopefully still have Ferrari’s like this concept, but hybrid (I know, that’s a pipe dream).
Consumers of the future (aka currently in Asia) will simply order all their essentials on the way to work via billboards in public places. Take a picture of what you want out of a product line-up with your iPhone, send your order out into the Cloud (lol), and an employee at a local grocery store will pack up your order and send it to your home. Basically, PeaPod on the go. Read the rest of this entry
Recently I saw many of the blockbuster hits (now that Blockbuster has gone out of business I find this expression both ironic and sad) of the early Summer. First, I saw Bridesmaids, starring my fav crazy girl, Kristen Wiig and SNL classic, Maya Rudolph. It was pretty funny, and kinda gross at some points. John Hamm’s character was almost unbearable, sucha a skeez. Overall I think my expectations were too high or I was just too familiar with Kristen Wiig’s comedy that I wasn’t surprised or dying of laughter. It also definitely could have been shorter as it dragged on for more than 2 hours. Read the rest of this entry
