Feed me music

I've said this on many an occasion: I spend a lot of time in my car commuting, and I need lots of new music when I'm driving. Lots!

If you can suggest anything, please leave it in the comments. Here's what I've downloaded lately:

Keri Hilson - In a Perfect World
This album is dope. Granted, if Timbaland produced my album, it would also be pretty dope.

Jazmine Sullivan - Fearless
I'm also digging this album, Jazmine Sullivan has a sexy voice, and a matching crowbar to bust the windows out yo car!

Leona Lewis - Spirit
Solid top to bottom, it's no wonder that this album was nominated for a Grammy. Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III was also nominated, forever tainting the credibility of these awards.

Kelly Clarkson - All I Ever Wanted
I don't give a fuck! I love this shit!

Let me know what you're listening to!

Aritzia?

If you ask me, this messy cursive script seems to read "criteria". In
fact, whenever my wife goes to shop here, that's what I call it.

Let's buy a T'Nah bag at Criteria!

Rough times for Raptor Fan

I can deal with a season that didn't meet expectations. I can deal with watching the Raps go through a losing season ... In fact, I've had to endure many losing seasons.

I know that the Shawn Marion experiment hasn't worked, and that the playoffs aren't in our cards for this season.

But what I can't deal with is lack of effort. These guys have given up, and they're just going through the motions. Raptor fans expect effort, and all of this losing to sub-par teams is bullshit.

Internet Explorer 8

Windows users (aka losers)! Listen up!

I just read over at the Wired News that Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 8.

Internet Explorer 6, which still owns approx 20% share of the browser market, is the absolute bane of my existence. Nothing renders properly. Javascript has to be written twice. If I ever meet any of the IE6 developers, I'm going to punch them in the face. When I catch people using IE6, I get verbally abusive with them. My blood is boiling just writing this.

Please, think of me. If you are among the 20% that still use the crappiest browser ever (EVER!!!!), and for some reason you still haven't upgraded to IE7, please head over to http://www.microsoft.com/ie8 and help reduce my blood pressure. IE8 does a much better job with standards compliance, even though it's still not as fast as Google Chrome or Apple Safari, or as good for development as Mozilla Firefox. Now that I think about it ... fuck Internet Explorer! Get a real browser, idiots!

Mike Rowe from Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs demonstrates how to get a great workout in any space by performing several sets of descending repetitions of the classic "burpee."

The burpee is by no means a new exercise routine, but if you're looking for a little variety in your fitness routine or you don't have space for a treadmill or other exercise equipment, burpees are a great option for staying fit. [via Kyle Pott]

Review - Right America: Feeling Wronged

I just finished watching an HBO documentary by Alexandra Pelosi, titled ... uhh, it's up top and I'm too lazy to type it again. Anyways here's a link:

and here are some YouTube videos:


I know that the people she's picked out are the most ignorant, most angry, and the craziest, but she found a lot of them -- and they scare the shit out of me! This misguided fusion of religion and state is a dangerous ideology, one that starts wars and propagates ignorance. Obama is a muslim? Obama is the anti-Christ? Obama's rise to power mirrors Hitler's? Are you kidding me!?

It's unbelievable that you can walk into a state like Mississippi or Alabama and find entire communities that share this view. There were enough of these Fox news watching, bible-thumping, gun-toting maniacs to elect Dubya Bush for a second term. They spend their summers visiting the Creation Museum.

I'm scared.
