Beginner’s luck at archery

I finally got to attend the free Saturday morning classes at the Pasadena Roving Archers‘ range this morning. I first heard about the classes about two years ago, but I had never gone. I tried going last week, but I got lost, which made me late. By the time I arrived, the classes had already…

Frozen Grand Central

I heard about Improv Everywhere a few weeks ago and the little stint they did at Grand Central Station. They got a group of people to all freeze at the same exact time for five minutes leaving onlookers curious and some workers aggravated. The reason I remembered them is because I saw an interview today…

Happy 20th, Jakie!

Jakie turned 20 years old today! There are no more teens in the family; I wish I were still a teen, though! We celebrated by inviting Nivel Cielo over to church tonight and by having a gelatin party—all the desserts had some sort of gelatin in them. The music was awesome, the desserts were great,…

Super-Fat Tuesday after the Super Bowl

It seems like there are a lot of “super” things going on lately. The Super Bowl was on Sunday, and today is both Super Tuesday and Fat Tuesday. (An interesting combination.) I only watched the last part of the Super Bowl; I was able to see how the Giants were barely able to squeeze in…

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get too many good pictures of it before the clouds rolled back in and it started raining…

Xerox goes 2.0

At the beginning of this month, Xerox joined a number of corporations and jumped onto the Web 2.0 bandwagon. When I first saw their new logo, the font reminded me of the new Kodak logo. Oddly enough, the logo wasn’t well received among many graphic designers and other people of that ilk. I have to…

iPod recycling speaker and dementia

I, like many other Mac users, have saved every box/package of every Apple product that I have purchased or have received as gifts. It’s not like I have a huge collection, but a few empty boxes can get in the way of being tidy. So, when something like the Bird-Electron EZ17-B iPod Recycling Speaker comes…

Sosumi and the Mac startup sound

The story of the Sosumi sound is widely known among Mac users. It’s not often, though, that you get to hear the story from the person that actually made the sound and so many other well-known Mac system sounds. So, when I came across this article at BoingBoing, I was thoroughly intrigued. Be sure to…
