Classic MadTV meets AppleTV = iRack

MadTV meets AppleTV = iRack

This classic skit from MadTV runs a great parallel of current events.

Apple iPhone…Holy Crap!

Holy Crap! Is this iPhone thing gonna be awesome or what? With so much hype it seemed near impossible for Apple to not disappoint, but it looks like they may have met or even exceeded expectations. Expensive, very expensive, but I’m sure I’m gonna have to have one. Loving that stock action as well! (aapl)


Chappelle’s Show with John Mayer

I hadn’t seen this one in a while, it just cracks me up…classic…

My Tivo Awaits reports –

Hitachi today introduced the Deskstar 7K1000, the world’s first 1TB hard drive for desktop systems. The 3.5-inch 7200RPM drive, which was originally slated for 2006, uses the company’s own perpendicular magnetic recording technology to store five platters of 200GB each. The drive sets a new record for density, according to Electronista, and the added size does not detract from performance. The 7K1000 is one of the only drives to feature 32MB of cache over the industry-standard 16MB on serial ATA models, and boasts a rapid 8.5ms average seek time. Shipments are scheduled to begin in the first quarter of the year for $400, while a version optimized for media streaming and quiet operation — dubbed the CinemaStar 7K1000 — is due in the second quarter.

Can’t wait to put this bad boy in my Tivo hopefully it isn’t blastoff noisy.

WOW!! Boise St. Rocks & Oklahoma Rolls

What more can you say but wow! this is why I love sports…

I loved the comments here from Seattlest who turned me on to this today.

Who wrote this script? Underdog Boise State gives up 15 points in about ten seconds to fall behind by a touchdown, ties Oklahoma with seven seconds left on a hook and ladder play, gets a TD in overtime on a halfback pass, then goes for the win with a two-point conversion and gets it on a Statue of Liberty play. As our roommate observed, Boise State’s coach brings his testicles to the game in two duffel bags. Then, after the game, star running back Ian Johnson asks his girlfriend, a Boise State cheerleader, to marry him (she said yes).

This went to immediate “save until I erase” status on the Tivo. All the plays are above on this YouTube footage via Deadspin.

Helping Where Help Is Needed.

This clip is from the show Studio 60 aired 12/4/06 and again 12/18/06. It featured musicians from New Orleans and there are links to the Tipitina’s Foundation as well as a link to a free download of the song they played, Oh Holy Night. Check it out. I really enjoyed and was very much moved by it.

There is a lot of need in New Orleans, Mississippi and the entire Gulf region. Let’s not forget that they are still struggling to get on with life. Please help in every and all ways. The Tipitina’s Foundation is just one avenue of helping. It helps to keep the creative pool of energy alive for the unique music of New Orleans to continue.
