Happy St. Patricks Day!

This is pic of my complimentary pint of Guiness after my tour of the Guiness factory in Dublin, Ireland in 2001. Amazing the shape of a pint of guinness with a 360 degree view bar at the top...I highly recommend

NCAA - March Madness - On Demand

NCAA March Madness On Demand

What have I done? I guess I won't be getting much work done on Thursday or Friday...but what else is new? March Madness consumes me just like every other male in the U.S. And this year I get to watch all the games I want online for $20. (Actually its only $10 for me cuz my buddy Tony and I are splitting their 2-for-1 deal) I'm just watching a press conference right now and I'm getting excited. Its crystal lag...perfect! Can't wait for tomorrow. Gotta love the fact that I'll be here by 9:05am not to get started on experiments, but to catch the tipoff of just about EVERY game.

Sing with me (in the tune of Kip):
I love technology, but not as much as you, you see...
But I STILL love technology... Always and forever.

UPDATE: Having full access to the tourney like that was FANTASTIC! I'm doing this again EVERY year hands down. Kip was right, the world wide web IS great!!

Lebowski Fest 2005

Lebowski Fest West - LA!

Right on Dude, right on! This should be quite an event. Who's in for some ROCKIN' on Friday night at the Knitting Factory followed by some ROLLIN' Saturday at Cal Bowl? Check out the stellar lineup:

Fri, Mar 25th Pre-Party - @ The Knitting Factory
Live music, unique performances, midnight movie
-Peter Stormare (Uli the Nihilist / Karl Hungus)
-Jack Kehler (Marty the Landlord)
-SKL - Performing as Autobahn
-Little Lebowski Urban Achievers
and much, much more...

Sat, Mar 26th Main Event - Cal Bowl
Bowling, costume, trivia contests, what-have-you
Appearances by:
-David Huddleston ( The Big Lebowski)
-Jeff "The Dude" Dowd(Real-life inspiration for The Dude)
-Jim Hoosier(The Jesus' Partner, Liam)
and much, much more...

Wow...I'm speechless. I don't think I will be in attendance though. I might be tempted to go if they offered some door prizes (like VHS copies of 'Log Jammin' or some Creedence 8-Tracks) and an open bar full of Caucasians and Sasparilla. And of course I would enter the costume party as the "oriental"...just walk around peeing on rugs. Should be quite a weekend. The Dude abides...

Coldplay "Talk"

Found a leak of "Talk" from the new Coldplay album...its okay...nothing special in my opinion. What do you think?

Coldplay: TALK
(this is a yousendit that means it will be up for 25 downloads or 10 days, whichever comes up first)
