Pagoda down! Pagoda down!

May 8, 2010

Originally a gift from Midland’s sister city Dongying China, the much vandalized Beal Park pagoda has finally taken a tumble. Actually it looks like it was cut down (I’m guessing by the city, for safety sake, or by skateboarders with chainsaws.)

Old Linens ‘N Things to be New…?

March 28, 2010

The outside is torn up, but the inside has new walls. They even took out all the trees. I’m going to guess, it’ll be an extreme vegan barber shop. Yep, I’m pretty sure.

I’m rockin’ the Roku now!

Ordered it last Wednesday for $99, no shipping or tax, and it got here today.

Wanna download from YouTube? (Well you can’t, for now.)

January 21, 2010 is down. It says it will be back, but for now this method doesn’t work.

It’s as easy as 3. Not three steps, it just takes a “3.”

Go to any YouTube video page, like

Replace the Y in YouTube with a 3, like

And you can download an mp4 or flash video to your computer.

Ok maybe it is three steps.

Make Your Own Coffee Pod shoot set up.

January 16, 2010

My plan: a duel camera shoot on how to make your own coffee pods (like those used for the Senseo coffee maker.)

I did the set up tonight so I can shoot first thing in the morning. No shower, no brush, just the pure glamour of me right out of bed. Just like you would have to do, if you were out of coffee pods in the morning. If I can make it happen (with cameras rolling,) it’s easy enough anyone can do it.

Here’s the final result


Snow Birds

The birds didn’t come out of their houses. But the duck were ready to attack. (Good thing I had my laser pointer.)

Will iPhone go to the prom with Verizon, even though they fight on the playground?

November 27, 2009

I looked for something on AT&T’s iPhone exclusivity deal expiring, but all I found were rumors and even stories about the rumors.

If a 2010 Apple deal with Verison is in the works, I don’t think Verison would have used the Droid as a direct attack on the iPhone and I don’t think Apple’s latest iPhone campaign would be aimed at Verizon’s network (not just a handset.)

Sure I could see AT&T vs. Verizon, or Apple vs. Google & Motorola, but when Apple and Verison are directly going at it, will seven months be enough time for them to kiss and make up?

I saw a tiny pink lizard at the station today.

Hollywood’s Recycle Bin (or Box)

October 25, 2009

In Se7en Brad Pitt asked “What’s in the box?” Now The Box is headed to theaters and this one is not filled with Gwyneth Paltrow’s head. This one has a button, and a past.

The Box is based on the short story Button, Button, written by Richard Matheson. So if you don’t have 1 hours and 55 minutes to burn at the theater, here’s a 20 minute version from The Twilight Zone.

Part 1 of Button, Button

Paranormal Activity was well worth the seven bucks. One kid even ran out of the theater at the end.

October 18, 2009

But I’m not sure any movie is worth the ridiculous line infront of the theater. This many people, and they only open two ticket windows.
