I’m kinda pumped for this. I have yet to be disappointed by a daft punk album. $11.99 pre-order through iTunes? sign me up.
That short teaser video a while back during SNL was for reals.
It’s been a while since we last heard from them when they did the score to the 2010 Tron: Legacy as well as their cameo in the film. Before that their last album was about 5 year prior. I have noticed that a good chunk of my favorite bands have long gaps in between albums and I’m ok with that.
This was reported all over the other day many have seen it but hey maybe you haven’t. Last weekend over in London a Star Trek insignia lit up the sky with the help of 30 LED Illuminated drones. Not only did it just from the insignia but it also rotated.
I encourage you to watch this video.
Remember to mark you calendars for May 17th.
Also if you happen to be a TNG fan remember to check out to see if you can see “The Best of Both Worlds” two parter episode in theaters.
Here’s the info on that:
- “Fathom Events and CBS Home Entertainment are coming together again to celebrate Season 3 of the iconic series Star Trek: The Next Generation® in a special one night big screen event. For the first time ever, The Best of Both Worlds will be shown bigger and better as a full-length presentation only on Thursday, April 25th at 7:00 PM (local time) in select cinemas nationwide.
- This not to be missed movie theater event will feature one of the most memorable moments in TV history and exclusive clips about the making of The Best of Both Worlds and Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 3″
- Get tickets
I also encourage you to take about one hour out of your week and listen to the best Star Trek podcast, This Week In Trek with Mike and Darrel. It’s a good time.
Oh and hulu has made almost every Star Trek episode available to watch for free until the end of the month. Get on that if you don’t have the netflix of amazon instant, you do not have much time left.
What a strange day today, well the week has been a bit off. I blame the 12 days off I just had. Perhaps too much time doing nothing has mushed me up and maybe because I’m back to work this week at a different location (just for this week)
So this week I got to drive a hour away for work. Ick, well it’s a good thing I love my car and enjoy podcasts. The work flow has been busy though, so there was no time play on the social sites. That and the cellular service where I was totally sucked.
So I give you the social media updates I wanted to post
6:30am “wow ice fog really is pretty”
6:45am “And now I shall inappropriately eat this chocolate doughnut stick while driving”
8:00am “if you breath can stink up a room, it’s time for a new toothbrush”
11:30am “When asked what would you like on your pizza? and you say any kind of dead animal you’re messed up”
12:00pm “it’s best not to say look at all that dead animal meat when everyone is digging into the pizza”
2:30pm “What’s the opposite of talking behind someone’s back, because this guys doing that”
4:00pm “everyone here at work is so negative, they all have nothing good say”
That was my strange day. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
Back In September most iPhones got updated with iOS 6. We got some enhancements and a few new apps including Passbook. The idea is that Passbook would hold all your coupons, club cards, tickets and what nots like that. Many people are no impressed with this app at all.
I have Target and Starbucks linked to passbook but I often forget about. Even though you could setup location services to send you a message once you are close to said place. When you think about it’s a great idea. I guess the popular retailers don’t feel like pushing this feature. They’d rather give use 3 foot long receipts.
So if you’d like to make this app useful to you instead of tucking it away in a folder on the last page, I give Flonsolutions they have created some great tickets to show off. To name a few;
I think explains it. Now go watch it!
NSFW show on Twit
Earlier this week I had read about how the hostess worker went on a strike due to loss of wages and a cut in benefits. While that was going on Hostess told the worker that if they don’t come back they’ll be forced to shut down For-ev-a. Apparently the striking working thought that was a bluff.
Talk about a strike gone wrong at the worst time of year, no chocolate cover Twinkie for me this year If we are lucky a good company will purchase Hostess’ assets and make them better and more available across the states. Perhaps Tasty Cakes?
If you’re really fiending for some twinkles, zingers or devil dogs you could always hit up eBay, I hear they are selling at a pretty high price.
Wow and there’s still 18 hours to go, will some of these fetch more? I bet.
Perhaps Amazon is a better choice?

A while back i bought a domain. Slashgrats.com, The name came to me while playing some world of warcraft. At first it was just a forwarding domain to guilds website. Well I had noticed that nobody including myself used the guild site. So then I turned it into a RSS feed of the active guild members achievements. Then Blizzard removed the RSS feature of achievements.
Then it came to me. I’ll make the site a blog of players achievements with screenshots. I cleaned it up and made it easy for people to submit their screenshots to the site so they could share. I thought I was done but then i got another idea, a short podcast. One that can be downloaded and played on the site. To make things even more fun i also have the short podcast on the tail end of the popular Instance podcast.
You can hear me each week give a short tip on how to earn an achievement in warcraft. So far I have five podcasts in the feed and featured on the Instance. I must say it’s become a fun little hobby.
If you’re not familiar with Deadpool this video really does some him up. It’s on thing to have an awesome costume, but to pull off the total character is bonus.
Have some Gifs. Share them.
This is a neat little iTunes trick that I stumbled on.
That’s right folks. Twit swag is now available for everyone to buy. I was pumped when I saw their twitter update telling everyone about it. I must say the quality of this mug is great and it hold coffee with no problems. If you’re a fan of Twit head on over to http://twit.spreadshirt.com/ and pick one up. The prices are reasonable, shipping was fast with no problems and it seems that they are adding new items.
I just can’t wait for stickers. In the meantime I’m going to pick up a t-shirt and will follow up on that.
This is our 4th or 5th daywich. We made it for our dad on fathers day. We call it the daywich because it take all day to consume it. What in it you ask..
roasted red peppers
import broiled ham
mortadella with pistachios
a towel has immense psychological value
That’s right people it is May 25th. Known to many geeks as towel day. Towel Day is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). On that day, fans around the universe proudly carry a towel in his honor.
Head over to towelday.org for all the info you need for today and if you don’t have a towel with you today…DON’T PANIC.
So recently I picked up one of them new iPads. It’s a fun and useful gadget. For accessories I picked up a Incase case with the magnets on the back(provides more viewing angles with the smart cover) and that over priced apple smart cover.
I really wanted to get a stand. I’ve seen so many though and the prices are very high for something so simple. So i did some googling and once again I found my self on some DIY page. It would appear that a $6 metal business card hold with a slight bend in the front makes a great stand.
If you have an iPad or any kind of tablet device go walk down to the office store and pick up a metal business card holder, then thank me later.
Just as we were about to exit the car and head into the market I turned to my lady and asked if she had any gum. It turns out she did. Now I know why ladies carry a purse and I’m be honest I’m a little jealous. I could never have this kind of variety in my pockets. My pockets are occupied with gadgets and cigarettes.
Eddie Izzard did a great bit about the death stars canteen. There is a few of these video out there, most of them are done with legos but this live action one is great. Its a bit old but still makes me laugh
