  • Mali

    Off to Mali to see my sister for two weeks. There will be pictures after I get back July 10th. In the meantime, I will continue not posting in my LJ :oD.

  • Mario Kart Wii

    And now, the online fun of Mario Kart! My friend code is 4339-2990-3722. The old tracks from the N64 version are still deep in my brain. For some reason, I’ve found “drifting” to be much easier with the Wiil than with a traditional controller, from say Double Dash. They may have just made it easier.…

  • Super Smash Brothers Brawl

    I got Super Smash Brothers Brawl, the game for which I bought the Wii. My friend code is 0087-2039-4826. I’ve played a bit with the single-player modes, and it’s bring back great memories of middle school wasted on the original N64 version.

  • Signs of Spring

    Riding home today, I heard geese. Between that and the Spring Forward, it’s starting to feel like the end of winter! Which is a little bit sad, as winter is my favorite season – except in Boston, where it rains too much and snows too little. Stupid global warming.

  • Vote!

  • Numerology

    I realized yesterday that I was 25.25 years old on the 25th. Nifty.

  • Paul & Storm and Jonathan Coulton

    Thanks to ‘s [FUN] post, I went to the absolutely excellent Paul & Storm and Jonathan Coulton concert at Johnny D’s in Davis Square. P&S opened (am I the only one who thinks Storm looks like Steve Jobs?), but they did backup on at least half of Coulton’s songs. I was introduced to some amusing…

  • Stolen Ringtone

    Now people are going to think I have a Kanye West ringtone. I pulled out a short snippet of the Daft Punk song “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”, because it sounds good on the dinky phone speaker, and I work too much. Almost the exact same sample is used in the background of a new West…

  • Warbussing

    So, for kicks, I kept the iPod Touch on active scan the entire length of the 1 and 71 bus routes. Along Mass Ave. there were generally at least 15 detectable wireless networks at any given time, thankfully all password-protected. Among some of the network name highlights: Wirenizzle MobileSex Bush is a Cocksucker Bluetooth

  • Victory!

    My local Star Market now carries Victory beers, including Storm King Imperial Stout, Golden Monkey Trippel, and Hop Devil. I win.
