All You Have to Do is Look Hard Enough

"One day, when you are older, you will learn all about the people we've befriended and the dangers we have faced.

At times, the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place. But believe us when we say that there is much more good in it than bad.

All you have to do is look hard enough.

And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may in fact be the first steps of a journey. ..."

Fun things on internet

I wish I have more time to blog. Lately life just gets in the way. :P

-This is more fun than I thought. You can draw pictures with strangers on the internet. (It's good to clean the board once in awhile by reload the page)
-eBay Feedback Generator
-How to make a Coin Ring (technically it's illegal since it's agianst the law to destroy money here in the USA)
-A podcast from Microsoft (Microsoft Mobile)
-CBS just ran a segment on podcast

Kong is King

First look at Peter Jackson's King Kong (well, at least for me... I just found out that there's even production video diary.) These videos pretty much show how hard this man works. During the last week of shooting, Peter was so tired that he had to call fellow directors like Bryan Singer and Frank Darabont for a little backup help. A must-see if you are interested in filming and directing. The editing (of the actual videos) is pretty rough imho, not sure if they do justice portraying all the people at work... but still pretty cool to check out.

Peter Jackson calls, and Bryan Singer answers (75MB... Smaller versions if you want: 49MB and 31MB.)

Howard Stern vs. Adam Curry

Howard Stern vs. Adam Curry from MP3.com. Though the article is pretty much about podcast and not really Stern.

They also have a "How to Get a Podcast" page, if you are new to podcast. Pretty basic stuff, only mentioning the iPodder client (which from my experience doesn't always work with everyone--I personally got quite a few emails from people asking about it) and I hope you guys already know how, since you are reading my blog.

(Actually... come to think of it, I don't even have a good "how to get a podcast" on my site [and, I just checked, neither do all the main podcast sites o_O]. Wow, we take the basics for granted, don't we? Well, I personally can't find the one's that good enough to link to... I really don't want people to think that there's only iPodder lemon to download--I got nothing against them but I believe people need to know all the choices that they have, and not get frustrated if iPodder just doesn't work for them.)

also: a new PSP hack(kind of) to do MSN IM-ing on PSP.

Seiko Epson Watch

Cool looking watch, isn't it? It was co-developed by Seiko Watch and Seiko Epson, and is said to be developed from electronic paper.

It reminds me of a FF watch that I used to want. This kind of watch looks cool by itself, but i'm not sure how it'll actually look like when someone's actually wearing it. (Looks too much like a girl bracelet to me too >.<)

Life is messy

"At some point you have to make a decision,

boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in.

Life is messy, that's how we're made; so you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them.

But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross.

Here's what I know, if you're willing to take the chance: the view from the other side, is spectacular."

-Meredith Grey, Grey's Anatomy (TV Tome)


That Pepsi Girl

I was bored today so I went around people's blogs randomly... and look what I found :D. Internet culture is pretty fasinating, don't you think? lol.

That Pepsi Girl
[more GIFs and video]

And guess who's the one behind the blog? it's f.u.b.a.r. Justin! Probably this is old news but I just found out the new fubar url. Apparently, from looking at his site stat I'm very late on this. Well, it's better late than never, right?

(For those who don't know Justin, he used to run his personal blog at thatsjustnotright.com [no I'm not gonna link to that site since it sucks now that Justin left.] The site became so popular that he sold the url and format to a company. Evidently he got some kind of agreement that allowed him to keep all his content and just changed the url.)

Now fubar is at: www.dontlinkthis.com (Yea, at first I thought it's a fake link also. But it's not.)

More links I stumbled across - attack of TechTV:
-what. sarah. wore.
-sarah. pic.
-kevin rose

Pretty facinating; internet culture. Hey! Apparently YOU are part of it also. :P
