my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

happy thanksgiving rickroll

the real rickroll this thanksgiving. for being like 90 years old, rick astley looks pretty good. he’s no match for barack obama’s rickroll.

hope everyone has a good holiday weekend.

looking to get past the monday back-to-work blues? some stories guaranteed to stir things up, like maybe in your pants:

get your special someone something for christmas from the new victoria’s secret catalog. i like how elegant the items are, nothing trashy or too boring [usemycomputer]

guys should save this letter somewhere and use it when they are about to dump their significant other. i like that term ‘throat yogurt’ [hogrock]

good way to kick off the weekend

some dmv’s are smarter than others

more prop 8 garbage

i still can’t believe that prop 8 passed here in california. there’s been protests in salt lake city at the mormon hq because of their involvement in providing money to the proponents of the measure, in addition to all the protests here at home.

keith olbermann actually gets a little nasally when talking about it all:

and…finally, do you really want this guy marrying your daughter? let them marry the other men so they can beat on each other.

tim lincecum wins the cy young

being of half-caucasian, half-asian descent myself, i can surely attest to the dominating athletic performance of tim lincecum. he won the NL cy young award today.

imagine where the giants would have been without him last season. if the devil rays can turn things around, so can the giants.

the power of google suggest

google suggest is a feature of the site where it will suggest words to complete your search based on what you’ve typed in. for example, if you start typing in a search string, it will return to you what other people have typed in and also how many search results you would get from the respective queries.

this could be good or bad

it could be girls in tight shorts or it could be a middle eastern guy.

pre-sorted news bits

i also have some new music. email or im me if you’re interested.

-california prop 8 i think is almost officially over. as of this morning, still too close to call but it’s a disappointing defeat. ridiculous that this can’t pass in california, of all places. the aclu is already on the case and i hope this can be overturned in the supreme court [sfgate]

-uk teen changed his name to “Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined”. his grandmother isn’t speaking to him. [upi]

-21 good condom ads from, mostly from durex. imagine working in the marketing department at durex and what tradeshows you’d get to go to. nsfw theme, but no skin showing. [divine caroline]

-i want to buy another camera someday – maybe it was good to shed the nikon so i can jump to the canon eos line and borrow lenses from steve. cool motion-blur photog [web urbanist]

while i can’t shake the thought of him looking for some rump ranger action in a public bathroom, it’s still a good song:
