After this scene was done last night I was wondering how fast someone would animate it a post it on the web. I am wowed a less than 24 hours Vulture has created it and a fine job too
Change is good they say. I believe that. I’ve gone through plenty of changes, some good some bad, some that I never really thought about if it was good or bad. I guess that would fall under “meh” Either way it’s a change. Most of the time a change is needed for a while and we push it aside until it’s really needed. We are then forced to make a decision we never wanted to. Of course we always think the worst is going to happen once we decide. In the end though we realize it wasn’t that bad at all.
I am now single.
I have a new job.
The lady and I went hit a little speed bump a while back and then got back on track. This past month we decided to go back to roomies as well as friends. We are about a month into this and doing just fine. As a result I am still in the process on creating a bedroom out of my office. A little challenging because it’s a small room with two doorways without doors. For a while when i was still working 3rd shift we were sharing the bed, it worked out due to the different sleep schedules.
I have left the drug store. I quietly left. which is odd because I am not a quiet guy. I really only told my boss and the guy I work with almost every shift. I needed to get away from the 3rd shift. For some reason my boss there though I loved 3rd shift and never wanted to leave it. There has been opportunities to switch but it was never offered. I don’t think it would have ever be offered. My boss was a very passive aggressive guy. He is a very nice guy but when I came to any type of problem he avoided it. As a result problem would just grow into uncontrollable monster. He found it amusing to relay the shit talk to the person who was being talked about and then didn’t understand why everyone hated each other. It wasn’t a one team it was many and they all competed. Often I would hear, “that’s not my problem”.
I am a parts guy again. This time at Nissan. I work with a great team. We are all there to get the same job done. We work together like Voltron.
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:
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!

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.
