I might ride this...

I might ride this, if like 4 other people were riding them with me.

It's no joke.

Ok, for real, this is the bike I want!

I want this bike so bad, it hurts! Below the picture is an excerpt from the online info about the bike.

It's called SASS, from Bianchi.

Fully wicked chromed frame and fork. The seventh edition of our famous one-speeder. And since you can’t chrome aluminum and you can’t chrome carbon, the frame and fork are steel, the frame material God rides on Sunday. Did we mention it was chrome?

You know it's hot. Please everyone, pitch in for an early birthday present. Look, if just 30 of you just give $28, then I can have it. But I may be able to find it a little cheaper, if I can, don't worry, I give you the difference back. Tell me what you think.

Back by popular demand!

Yeah, I really liked the old look a lot better. I just wanted to make sure somebody saw it before I changed it back. For those of you who didn't see it, well, sorry we missed you!

Well... Let's think of what's new...

Last night, after dinner, Nick and I did a nice little ride. Now his bike is squeaky and mine is silent. But he also has an XT rear derailleur and upgraded shifters and brakes. I would like them too, but I just don't need them. He needed to get them when he had to replace his old Acera. He also upgraded to a 9 speed cassette, but why am I making this whole blog about him?! Either way... we did a nice little ride through part of the Mason-Dixon trail near our house, trails were pretty try (that was a test) and then took Creek Rd to the small bridge over the creek, followed that over hopkins into the Nature Center, then up the hill, across the field and up the road to the Park Office. We then went up the small road to Corner Ketch, then back down some decent hilly, windy, singletrack and then the same route back home, except we went up Wedgewood Rd. Lot's of fun though.

When we got through everything and were on our way home, my stomach had had enough! I wanted to throw up but couldn't. It may have had something to do with the 3 lbs of teryaki steak I just ate (well not really 3 lbs, but a lot)! But luckily, I brought some Brioschi, that stuff works miracles. I was back on the saddle in no time and beating the Nick up the hill (but he also had some shifting problems)!

I can't wait for tomorrow! The Allen's have a youth group thing going on and it should be a blast, even though I'm there to mostly just help out. I'm not allowed to have fun. Sike! Sike na! But after that is a movie/Halo/Katie beating Dave feastival at the K's! It's going to be great, because I'm bringing a Red Bull.

On Ebaums World, I just watched a video of a guy pulling his big toenail off with vice grips. That's disturbing. I need to know details, anybody with details or anyone with a good imagination and likes to make things up, leave a comment. I would put a link on here, but Ebaums is blocked from work. I also have only been there like twice, I like big-boys better, I think...

That's a good enough post for now, maybe I'll get some time wasters on here in a little bit. Pace makers!

It's better than being naked!

I found 2 shirts that I want. Pretty bad too. The first one is Lances yellow jersey. Well, not the one that he wore, but one you can buy, for me. But if the price for that yellow jersey is too steep, then one of you can buy me this one, its significantly cheaper, but equally or not greater in coolness.

The more and more I look at my new template, the more I don't like it. I really think I'm going to be going back to my old look. You know what they say, people in glass houses sink ships.

If someone were to either give me this bike, or let me borrow it for a year, I would seriously consider never owning a Specialized again! This may be the bike that converts me!

I got to touch it at Bike Line... I'm in love...

Oh, I won a Sierra Mist at work today. We played "Let's Make a Deal!" The thing was, whoever had a 1994 penny, well, you know I did! Booya! Ooombop... I'm so happy! Ok...

It's been constantly call after call! Uhhh...

I also wouldn't mind getting this bike either.

This is what goes on inside of my head!

Well, that's a good post for now.

New Look

What do you guys think of the new look? Be honest too. It seems a little "busy." I may go back to my old one. We'll see...

Funny Pics!

Here are a few funny pics for ya!

I actually might have a use for the tombstone...

You wanna laugh?!

If you wanna laugh, then you have to check out this. Biker Fox. He lives and rides around in Tulsa. I've met him and see him now and then. Never on the trail, but riding on the street on his mountain bike or in coffee shops.

But if you really wanna laugh, then check out his pictures here!

Bikes & Bugs

My fit kit for the Buick came 2 days ago. I installed the roof rack on the Buick last night. Here are some pics.

The Buick began its new life!

The Subaru... Naked...

A depressing lineup.

Poor Suzy Subaru... being mocked...

Ok, enough with the pics. I just had to get some because it was the first day with the new rack.

I also got my bike fixed yesterday, the bottom bracket was just loose. Jeff, my neighbor, took the bottom bracket out, degreased and regreased it
and put it back it. Silence once again! I had a few more things I wanted him to look at but he was busy with his little son, so I didn't want to bother him more. I'll talk to him later, maybe tomorrow or something. He is like the best neighbor that we could ever have!

He is practically a bike mechanic with a whole shop in his basement. But he just brought one of his bike stands in the garage, that way we could just work out there. Great guy though. He has one of these, but his is way upgraded... like carbon fiber crank arms... stuff like that. Jeff also has a cannodale cyclocross bike. Not the same as this one, but just to give you an idea... I'll have to just get a picture of it and post it because its one of the sweetest bike I've ever seen. He also has a tandem, don't remember the model with a baby carraige pulle behind attachment. Then he has a mountain bike, Specialized Stumpjumper, and older model, and a carbon fiber bike, but that's back at the factory right now. Can't remember the name of the carbon fiber bike... Either way...

Yesterday, after dinner, I saw a praying mantis on the porch door. So I said to myself "Kyle (I call myself Kyle), you need to get a close up of that!
" And I did! Check it! This is the closest you can zoom in on the camera. I used my Minolta X50 with the Macro feature and then zoomed in all the way, and used the flash too. His eyes look blurry, but it's just because his eyes are like that. I think he's smiling!

I think that's good for now, I'm sure I'll think of something else and add it, but maybe during my lunch break. Take luck!

Sand, sand, everywhere, sand, sand, in my hair.

Yep, nice day at the beach yesterday. Sunny, warm, water was ok, nice, very nice. Me, Jenni, Kenny, and Charis all went. We first went to Cape Henlopen State Park, then walked around Rehobeth in the evening.

I'm going to try and plan one more beach trip with just Jenni and I before school starts. But we'll rent those beach cruiser bikes, go up an down the boardwalk and the stores and stuff, then walk along the beach. No sand castles, just relaxing. You know, like with my khakis rolled up above my ankles and my hawaiian shirt loosely hanging around my sculpted body with my hair gently swaying in the ocean breeze... wait, I don't have hair! But everything else is correct.

Here are some pics from the trip:

View from behind our umbrella.

A busy day at the beach.

In an alley in Rehobeth.

It was a really relaxing day. The whole day just clicked. The drive was perfect. Barely any traffic, (even though the Cape Henlopen parking lot was fairly packed) we found close parking spots, and it wasn't super hot, just hot enough to feel like the beach. I even collected some neat shells and rocks and put them in my glass snapple bottle. I'll have to get a picture on here later.

I wish I had a road bike because that way I really think I would consistently commute to work if I did. Some days, I think the biking would take the same amount of time driving, well, going home at least. Nick said that MBNA has a bicycle commuter reward type thing, you can redeem points for prizes like a video camera... stuff like that. I checked, but AAA doesn't have anything like that, so I don't see a point in getting a road bike right now. They're not really that cheap. If need be, I'll just buy a 2nd set of wheels so I can keep my mountain bike road tires on, buy an aero bar and bam!, instant commuter bike, just roll up the right pant leg...

A lot of bikers have problems with drivers on cell phones. Do you think this is an idea that they will embrace? Oh boy...

As you know, I just got my first credit card. Well, today, we have reached another milestone... my first purchase with my first credit card! I don't know if the link will work, if not, it's a book for school I needed, "DVD Studio Pro 2 for Mac OS X."

My neck is crazy sore! I have no idea why... I slept great last night... I went to bed early too, around 10:30 or 11:00, can't really remember. I fell asleep with the tv on though, because I remember waking up with glasses on and tv on, so I turned off the tv and put my glasses on my bed side table and conked out again.

I bet you all have seen this, but just in case, here is a great link for the cheapest gas in Delaware, well, a list of the gas prices... There are other states listed if you don't live in DE. I signed up so I can start getting points. Just read into it!

It's being a long after noon. At least its finally 4pm! This part goes kind of fast. I clock in 3 min early, so I can leave 3 min early. Not too much, just enough though. Also I usually take my last 10 min break around 4:47, so then it's just a break then I leave. It works for me.

Well, I think I'm going to post this before I lose everything, but don't think you've seen the last of me!

Oh, first, special props to Lil' Rach (unless you don't want to be called Lil') and to Jenni's parents because they are both reading this now. I guess I have to watch these fingers... SIke, you know my blog is good! It's rated "R" though, "R" for "Really Cool"! Hah!

What's "Plan B?"

I saw this on my candy wrapper. I'm a little scared. You think it's a secret code for something... Oh, the candy was Sweet Tarts. I never did trust that Crazy Wonka...

Let's Sqaush the Myth.

Nod your head!

I don't know what it is, but I love Will Smith's song "Black Suits Coming (Nod your head)" from MIB 2! The hook is way off! Is that how you say it? Either way...

Here's a clip...

Didn't go see Must Love Dogs last night... Instead, we went to see Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Must Love Dogs was sold out and we were there 30 min early! Oh well... We'll see it at the $1 theatre in Tulsa later.

I did have something to say, but can't think of it now... I wish I could... I think I'm going over big O's house tonight for a little "Party"... If you know what I mean. The Crockett should be there, sure to be a good time.

I need to do laundry... The corner in my room is starting to smell... No, I'm just kidding. If my english professor saw this blog, she would probably die because of all the "..." in it. I know I'm using it incorrectly, but I like them... SEE! I did it again! Without even meaning to! Either way...

I got my first credit card. I Citi Bank College Credit Card. I get money back and stuff like that. When I called to activate it, the guy, I think his name was "Amir" or something like that, actually it was Michael but either way... After he said "You're all activated..." I said "So I can start charging everything up?" He laughed. I did my job in society. Thank you, no, your welcome.

I ran sound this morning, well, for special music. Amy and Annie did a great job. I especially liked Annie's voice and piano together, no offense Amy, but I've never heard her sing before, you're good too! It was a real nice duo. Mostly because I mixed it! Oh yeah... j/k, g2g, ttyl, n2m, brb, lol, n/p...

Play nice.

In memory of the Chinese.

I love the Chinese! I really do! They have great food, have a cool language, dress cool, but I just have one problem. Those fortune cookies! They used to be good, I mean, they would predict everything perfectly, but... as you can see below, they are just not cutting it anymore.

I mean, c'mon! The last living brain cell comes up with this one! Maybe they should just put Chinese money inside fortune cookies. I would love to have some Chinese money, maybe even start collecting! Who knows!

Oh, looks like I am going to the movies tonight. Going to see this. I am going to be so early. I hate getting to movies late, trying to find a seat in the dark, missing previews... Oh! I love those previews! They really get me pumped for the feature presentation! This might be going a little too far...

I need one of these! A computer-on-a-stick! Brilliant!

Mindball?! I'm game! Best out of 3...

This is so Colby...

I'm sure most of you have seen this before, but it's real life "Warthog!"

A little something for the nerds to read.

When I get rich, I'll compete in this.

Just what we need, a new soccer mom ride... Can't wait to get by one of those on my bike...

Does the world really need this? The P-Mate... take a guess.

The sad thing is, I would probably actually use this.

Sounds like a good idea, just don't go swimming with it...

Bike powered boat? Sure, why not.

Underwater motorcycle? Even better!

Mr Wayne, your boat is ready...

Well, that's good for a little while, till later...

What to do, what to do...

It's just my Dad and I at home this weekend... Oh yeah... No Mom, Nick, or Ana... I don't know what I'm going to do. Actually I have some ideas.

I got 2 more free movie tickets at work today, so if the lady wants to go, I think I'll take her out to see Must Love Dogs. I think she'll like that one. So that's tomorrow, but what of the rest of the weekend?

I'll probably take her to the beach on Monday. I also have to drop the Buick off at Pep Boys to get the spark plugs changed and a new PCV valve. They made 3 of the plugs super easy to get to and the other 3 impossible. I would do it myself, but like I said, you can't even get to the back 3 plugs without taking the engine out and the passenger side seat, honestly!

So the beach... I wonder what the weather will be like for us, it's usually not very good, cloudy or cold or rainy. I think this time it will be like 104 degrees and 300% humidity, but we'll see. Probably go back to Cape Henlopen.

Oh, I saw the new Wal-Mart the other day, opening day. It was packed like many a sardine, less the need to be said! That's how I say "packed like sardines, needless to say... It's a little strange, I know. I saw the K's in there, very nice, very nice... Just buying one plate and a Pringle, not a can, just a Pringle. They are strange, but nice.

I just ordered my new fit kit for my roof rack to go on the Buick.

Can you imagine this thing with a bike rack?! It's going to look crazy! The picture isn't really my exact car, mine is white with different wheels, it's just a pic I found online. I almost want to take the minivan back to school, because it gets decent gas mileage, tape and cd player, room for all your friends... It's hot, yo.

Well, that's good for now, let me see if I can find some new fun links...

You gotta check this out! Breaking news on Noah and his dudes.

700hp motorcycle? Always welcome in my blog.

Another fun way to get hurt, which looks like fun.

No parachute? I don't think I want to do this.

1TB on a CD!? Oh yeah!

Funny, but serious (I think), Wal-Mart page.

Another Wal-Mart page.

Should I shave/wax my legs in the name of cycling? I honestly am considering it...

That's good for now, take care.

Nope, a funny joke first!

A man is lying in a hospital bed with an oxygen mask over his mouth.

A young nurse enters his room to sponge his face and hands. "Nurse," he mumbles from behind the mask, "Are my testicles black?" Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know Mr. Jones, I'm only here to wash your face and hands."

He struggles again to ask, "Nurse, are my testicles black?" Again the nurse replies, "I can't tell. I'm only here to wash your face and hands."

The head nurse walks by and sees the man getting a little distraught, so she marches over to find out what's wrong. "Nurse," he mumbles, "are my testicles black?"

The head nurse whips back the sheets, pulls down the man's pajamas, moves his penis out of the way, has a good look, pulls up the pajamas and says, "There's nothing wrong with them." Frustrated, the man said.................. "ARE MY TEST RESULTS BACK YET?"

Now I'm done!

I blogged in someone elses blog!

I put a quick little update in the comment section of Davie's Xanga. Here is his link. You have to select Comments/Eprops to see my comment. It's pretty long, well, not really, but long for a comment.

Great scotts!

Back to the Future...

Here is a great link on making your own stickers, shirts, mugs, stamps... stuff like that. I think it's really cool you can make your own "euro" (oval) style stickers and stamps. I gotta get on that.

Time waster and a half!

This is something that I don't think will be available after today, so go there right away. It's to commemorate the first landing on the moon in 1969.

A fun, fun link!

New dogs and noodle salad.

Crazy title huh? I know, I made it up myself!

Anyway, I went over Jenni's house last night after dinner to eat dinner. Well, I wasn't going to have anything, but I ended up just having a little piece of chicken, a roll or two and some brownie with ice cream. They had a bunch of people over, well, not a tone of people, just family friends. Anyway, it was a lot of fun.

Can you believe the new Wal-Mart opens today!? I can't wait!

On another note, the Safrit's got a dog. It's a female white german shepherd. She is really nice! I like her, she's not very big though, but they wanted something a little smaller than the last one. Below is picture of what it looks like, it's not exactly the same though.

They haven't named her yet though. She seems like a really great dog, real friendly and all.

Well, that's a good post for now, I know there's more to say, but I'll do it on my lunch break, maybe... maybe not... maybe...

Someday I'll work here...

This one's for Davie...

Tuesday, July 19, 2005

I'm back!

Ok, I just have time for a teeny weeny post because it's pretty busy at work... but you know how that goes, I will probably make this a huge one...

Anyway, here are some cool links...

Three different underwater hotels.

A totally time wasting time waster...

Hung out with the little lady last night on Main St, Newark. Fun. Got some cheese sticks at the Diner, then walked up and down main st looking at Grass Roots and stuff like that. Then topped it off with a trip to Rita's to finally use my free gelati coupon. I was bored out of my mind yesterday! I did absolutely nothing! Then dinner was perogies (I don't know how to spell it), and I hate those things!

Well, I'm back at work now. As usual.

I had so much fun in North Carolina last week! I got to do so much stuff! One of the highlights was riding a jet ski that Jenni's cousin Nealy brought. I got it up to 62 mph! It felt a lot faster than that! Also, the Safrit's bought a tube, the kind you pull behind a boat. That was a blast! The tube was a lot like this one, but different color and model, it was called Wake Burner or something...

The jet ski I rode was a 1999 Yamaha GP 1200.

While I was riding I saw another guy on a jet ski go by, so I chased him down and was riding along side of him at around 55 mph, when he looked over, smiled real big, then took off like I was sitting still, I was practically maxed out! Later on, Kenny and I saw him park at a house across the lake and Kenny went over to talk to him. He came back and told me that it was a supercharged four stroke! This is the new model of his, I think he had just last years model, it looked almost identical. He said it goes over 70 mph and has 215 hp while mine was only about 135 hp! I want one!

Every night at the lake, Kenny and Jeremy and I would fish, catching nothing really, but just hanging out and drinking Red Bull. Well, AMP for Jeremy.

Wisdom teeth are going to have to go soon... not sure when. They don't hurt or anything, but are going to be taken out just in case they kill me.

Info on the Tour.

Does anyone want Dorney Park tickets cheap? Well, a little cheaper than Pastor Ben is selling. I got 2 and I don't think I'm going, I may eBay them...

Well, that's good for now, take care.

Last Post... for a while.

This is going to be my last post for a while because I am going on vacation with Jenni's family to North Carolina. There isn't any Internet access there so that's why I'll be out of touch. Also, my cell will be out of service.

If you know what this is, this is where I'll be:
N 35 36.142
W 80 14.590

Well, see ya!

Saturday, July 09, 2005

I can't help it! Last one!

First, check this out...

I came across this info from a study by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry. Maybe not a good idea to read if it's that time of the month for you ladies though...

Little known fact...............

Did you Know?:

A study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of male face a woman finds attractive can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For instance, if she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features.

However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she is more prone to be attracted to a man with scissors lodged in his temple and a bat jammed up his butt while he is on fire.

El Randome (it's spanish for random, really!)

I came across this funny report card. See how your state fares... Here is the story.

Are you serious? They are just doing their job! Well, I mean... what they are doing is wrong... Yeah! Wrong!

Jenni, I hope you're reading this...

Well, that's really it this time. Maybe. I'll put a picture on here next... Till later on!

Me, working hard. Really! Don't laugh! Ahh, forget it... Posted by Picasa

Fast All Natural Heartburn Relief!

I love this stuff! I actually never ever get heartburn, I've never got it either. I just eat this as a snack. I like the way it tastes and makes you burp, just little burps. Not BBBBBbbbbbbbbrrrrrrrAAAAAAAAApPPPPPPPPP! It's like "ba-hurp" (soft, English accent).

Well, it's pretty busy at work today, they cut our lunches back to 30 minutes. I better get going, till ne

Warm furry feelings (fuzzy doesn't sound comfortable to me).

Do you ever wonder how many "warm feelings" we have about people, but never tell them? On my way to work this morning, I passed my high school History teacher running. I remembered how nice he was and really got me into learning about History. I wish I could have told him that I appreciated him being a teacher, but you can't when going 40 mph down the road. But that was this mornings "furry feeling." Although, it could have been brought on by the Enya I was listening too... Anyway, Mr. Martel, if you are reading this, thank you for being you, and teaching History. Mr. Martel is a real man of genius.

Without me you're just Aweso!

This post is going to be all about links. I love lynx! I mean links! But I love lynx too! Let's begin shall we!?

Here is a wonderful little bit on customer service.
“It takes 12 positive service incidents to make up for one negative incident,” Waller said. “Seven out of ten complaining customers will do business with you again if you resolve the complaint in their favor. If you resolve it on the spot, 95 percent will do business with you again.”

I took this test, and this is me:

Stability results were moderately high which suggests you are relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.

Orderliness results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly organized, reliable, neat, and hard working at the expense of flexibility, efficiency, spontaneity, and fun.

Extraversion results were moderately low which suggests you are reclusive, quiet, unassertive, and secretive.

There are some other cool tests, I haven't taken any, but they are here: HERE!

This is a great little time waster game I came across. I don't even know what's going on though...

Next time your Mom tells you that you waste time and do nothing constructive, just think of the years this person spent working on this!

Do you want perfect sideburns in just 5 minutes?! I do! NoT! But if you do... you know what to do...

I'm actually starting to feel really bad about all these links. I kinda stole them from another blog... but I added my own comments! Yeah, what am I worrying about... More?

Sometimes, this is what those "Share The Road" sections of the road feel like!

Is your hiney sore from that ride 2 weeks ago, but can't remember which route it was? Don't want to take that route again, check this out!

Don't ask me what this is about. SUV's... I drive a Subaru (or my bike...).

I'm so glad I'm not searching... because I probably would be the only one doing this.

Just the coolest of the cool stuff at Sea Otter 2005.

Couch potatoes rejoice!

I need spy stuff too!

I guess that girl I met in the chat room and I aren't going to meet next week...

Read this dude's feedback replies... they are hilarious!

If you call your bathroom your "office" like I do then you'll appreciate how far we've come. Well, the Japanese really, but same difference...

Adopt a penguin. Enough said.

If Jenni rode singlespeed, she'd ride this. Actually probably not, she's not that into pink... I for one would probably ride it though. Just keep it caked in mud...


Longest widdle... If you know what that is... Check the rest of the site out too.

How cool does this look! I mean on a sled or something. Read the story too.

You can't tell anyone secrets anymore!

New Mexico... barely better than the old one!

I really want one of these! Really!

Now this guy is hardcore!

I would really like to try this...

Well, I have to go. I hope I wasted your whole day with these links. I need to thank my friend Donut Guy for them. They really are awesome links!

Why the glove compartment?

I'm just sitting here on my luch break, listening to, no, Feeling, yeah, feeling, Death Cab for Cutie's Title & Registration and I believe they are right. The glove compartment isn't appropriately named! Well, I'll let you all ponder on that. Visit the link and you can hear a clip of the song on the home page.

Wednesday, July 06, 2005


I know, I know, I wasn't going to add anymore for today, but I though of some new things. I think one of the things I can Ebay is my iPod, but my goal is actually to get a new one. Like... I am starting the bidding for my 10GB 3G at $250, so I have enough for a new iPod. But I will enclose some extra things, like an iTunes gift card... I don't know, other stuff too. Maybe this, how about an auction for an iPod related item worth at least $40, and it's a random drawing from me out of items like: iTunes gift card, Apple Earbuds (refurb), iTrip, iTalk, iPod case... stuff like that, but the real goal will be to raise enough money for me to get a new iPod to pursue my photography passion.

I also could probably do one like raise money for college. Or advertise for a company by wearing their shirt every day (after classes) for 1 month. I don't know... Does anyone have any good ideas? Or even ideas that would fit me? Send them my way. I have got to cash in on this!

The summer is going by at a good pace. A litle faster would be nicer... I'm really anxious to get back to school. There's something relaxing about being at school, even with all the classes. I love the environment. You can go take a nap in the prayer gardens, play frisbee in the fields, swim at the aerobics center, get an ice cream cone and walk around after dinner, play UNO in the fish bowl, that sort of thing. Well, I really think that's all I'm going to write for now, getting tired...

College and Chicken Nuggets

I just got my list of classes that I am taking in the fall. I'm in the MMI! The Multi-Media Institute. Here are some classes, Advanced Audio, Media Analysis (The Art of Watching Films), Field Production and Editing, Disc Authoring, and Film Production Techniques.

The software: Adobe After Effects 5.5, Dreamweaver MX, Flash MX, Director MX, and Avid DV Xpress 3.5. It's going to be tons of fun!

I'm helping run sound in church now. The mixer that we use is an Allen & Heath GL2000. I honestly don't know much about, I just know how to use it.

I have been looking at Ebay recently. Mostly the stuff in the section "Totally Bizarre" and stuff like that. Here are some crazy items that are actually selling: Jay Leno chicken nugget, sea horse chicken nugget, people naming their kid, buying a friend, college student getting help with student loans, and a piece of paper selling for $305. I really need to get on this band wagon! As PT Barnum was rumored to say "There's a sucker born every minute." I'm seriously thinking about starting an auction with food that looks like people or something. There seems to be a market for that.

Anyway, that's all I really got for now, I hope you enjoyed this episode of Scrap Paper, by the way, if you think of a better name, tell me, I can't think of anything better, not that it's the best, but it gets the job done. Anyway, have a great day!

New and Improved (or at least Cheaper) iPods!

It was just brought to my attention that the iPod Family has changed. No more 30 GB, he went on the South Beach Diet and is now more colorful after going to the beach, you know, South Beach... so he's 20GB now. Then the Shuffle shrunk in price. 512MB is still $99, but the 1GB is $120 with student discount, but there is a 512MB Refurb for $79. Tempting...

Anyway, what happened! Why 20 ang 60GB? This is just another ploy from "the Man" to keep us lowly peons down, away from the upper crust of society! Grab your torch and pitchfork! Whoaaa... let's cool down before we tar and lych Steve Jobs. Remember, he did (and "The Woz") bring us Macintosh. That's my only problem with Apple. They upgrade so fast... prices go down so fast... and that can be a good thing. Like if you never buy anything, you can just sit back and say, "Good thing I didn't buy that iPod a week ago, now it's $100 cheaper!" But if you ever buy anything, you have to just bite the bullet and accept the fact that in 2 months, there will be a new one! Oh well, I guess it's no hugantic problem...

That's all the upset and I can handle for now. Tune in next week for more adventures (This is an old school pod cast, I just type words instead of saying them, keeps bandwidth down...).

Help me!

I found this website, that if I leave a review for some kind of camera or equipment, in my case a camera (Minolta X50), and 50 people find it useful within a month of me posting my review, then I get $100 store credit. This is where you come in. I am going to put a review on the site, then need you guys to just visit the link I supply, then at the bottom of the review, where it says "Did you find this review helpful?" Click "Yes." And 50 people later all my dreams come true! I can get a number of things that would really help me further my photography hobby.

To show you how excited I am about photography, I have set up an online gallery that will showcase my best work. I don't have everything in there yet, but it can hold up to 30. I'll be putting some more on there in the next few days though. Also, I have a Webshots gallery, but I need to delete some of those, change some, ... just update as well.

Anyway, I know it's a lot to ask, 50 people to click "Yes" on a web page... But wait, it's really that easy, you don't have to give your name or anything, just click "Yes" then it says something like "Thank you for..." So, here is a "wish list" of things that I could get for my $100...

1. External 80GB Hard Drive - $120
2. Nikon 10 x 50 Binoculars - $100
3. Compact Flash Card or SD Card

Well, that's just a short list of the stuff I could get. I think I would certainly go with the 80GB hard drive, I could really use one of those for all the pictures I take...

Here's the plan: If you would be interested in helping me (which you all should be), please email me at: And let me know you are interested. Then when I post the link on this site, go to it, click "Yes" and we're all set! Please reply as soon as possible, that way as soon as I get 50 people to agree to it, then I will leave the review and post the link. Thanks again!
