DDD: Update

One of the biggest questions I get, and ask myself is "What's taking so long, why haven't you finished your book yet?" Is it "writers block" ?

 No, my problem isn't, and has never been writing. I never look blankly at a screen and don't know what to type. I'm not writing fiction, I don't have to come up with an idea or character or clever dialog.

The issue I've had with my book isn't coming up with an ending. It's not typing. It's not creativity. It's not even, as I've always thought it was - motivation. It's the mechanics behind what I found.

I know what it is. I know why it's there. I know who did it. I know when it was made. What I don't know is HOW it was made.

I ask myself constantly: "Is it really this complicated, was Da Vinci really that smart?"

When you write a research paper for school it's pretty easy. You read what other people have written about the subject, put it in your own wor…

It's A Whiskey Lullliby

It's A Whiskey Lullliby
She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette

She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget

We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time a little at a time

But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind

Until the night

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger

And finally drank away her memory

Life is short but this time it was bigger

Than the strength he had to get up off his knees

We found him with his face down in the pillow

With a note that said I'll love her till I die

And when we buried him beneath the willow

The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

I dont know what this commercial is trying to sell, but I'm buying it!

Charlie bit me!

This rivals Pink the Cat as the funniest movie ever.

Pinky the Cat

This is my most favorite video of all time. I can't, not laugh at it. Whenever I think that the world is a bitter place, all i need to do is watch this and it makes everything worth it. Every single second!

Cookies by Douglas Adams (author: "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy")

"This actually did happen to a real person, and the real person was me. I had gone to catch a train. This was April 1976, in Cambridge, U.K. I was a bit early for the train. I'd gotten the time of the train wrong.

I went to get myself a newspaper to do the crossword, and a cup of coffee and a packet of cookies. I went and sat at a table.

I want you to picture the scene. It's very important that you get this very clear in your mind.

Here's the table, newspaper, cup of coffee, packet of cookies. There's a guy sitting opposite me, perfectly ordinary-looking guy wearing a business suit, carrying a briefcase.

It didn't look like he was going to do anything weird. What he did was this: he suddenly leaned across, picked up the packet of cookies, tore it open, took one out, and ate it.

Now this, I have to say, is the sort of thing the British are very bad at dealing with. There's n…

See what I mean boo boo?

But how are you going to get out of the car yogi? You'll see boo boo, you'll see!

This gave me chills

G1 vs Vibrant

It's been almost 2 years since I got my HTC G1 Cell phone. 

It was the first Google Android phone. Android is an operating system on cell phones which is soon to evolve into a computer operating system as well - like Apple's Leopard and Windows 7 (vista xp)

It's amazing how far cell phones have come in such a short time. And by the time I finish writing this post a new-er and even better phone will be out.

My contract wasn't up so instead of paying an extra 200$ to switch to Verizon and getting the Droid X, I got the new Samsung Galaxy s Vibrant.

I didn't really want to upgrade but my G1 wouldn't hold a charge and would turn off if it wasn't plugged in.

 Since both phones have Android, as soon as I put my sim card in, everything updated instantly and I already knew exactly how to use everything. All my contacts, my email accounts, etc.

When I first started to play with the Vibrant I was so impressed with the speed. It has a 1ghz Hummingbird processor. I reme…
