i want my money back - iPhone "3G"

So finally, after waiting for what seems like multiple lifetimes, the "3G" iPhone arrives, with guns blazing. GPS, white or black, half price, 3 "G's", a touchy screen, third party applications, dangerously shiny, better battery life, and ...oh i don't know, lets say, a...can opener.
But lets take a deeper look here, whats under all that shiny touchiness? It may have 3 "G's", but how about a meat tenderizer? 12 gauge shotgun shell re loader? book binder? thumbtack sharpener? No. No it does not. You can put as many "G's" in a phone as you want, but without a laser pointer and a pasta strainer it means nothing to me, i want my money back.

Movie Time

saw a kind of funny movie this weekend, it was like... seth rogen played this dude who got a high school girl with a funny name pregnant, she wanted an abortion but the baby had fingernails and she worked for E! and they didnt really know each other so they tried to get to know each other by eating lots of orange tic tacs and shrooms while at a cirque de soleil show. they were having money issues with their softcore porn site, so he started running on a track team which didnt really work out except for the sweet headband and the ball shorts. jason bateman and paul rudd were pretty funny as usual, decent music; velvet underground, sonic youth covered the carpenters, old dirty bastard, cat power covers waits, all in all in was nice to see a movie that makes random drunken single accidental teen pregnancy cool again!

Christian Jihad


"The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for Peace in Our Time, in the United States or any other country. Make no mistake about it: We are At War now -- with somebody -- and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives ... It will be a Religious War, a sort of Christian Jihad, fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerrilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy.
We are going to punish somebody for this attack, but just who or what will be blown to smithereens for it is hard to say. Maybe Afghanistan, maybe Pakistan or Iraq, or possibly all three at once. Who knows? Not even the Generals in what remains of the Pentagon or the New York papers calling for WAR seem to know who did it or where to look for them.
This is going to be a very expensive war, and Victory is not guaranteed -- for anyone, and certainly not for anyone as baffled as George W. Bush. All he knows is that his father started the war a long time ago, and that he, the goofy child-President, has been chosen by Fate and the global Oil industry to finish it Now. He will declare a National Security Emergency and clamp down Hard on Everybody, no matter where they live or why. If the guilty won't hold up their hands and confess, he and the Generals will ferret them out by force."

lots of places in japan are no shoes. restaurants, all homes, most offices. snapped this picture just after yuko hung up our laundry, tells a lot about japan, and im sure some real depth about the inner workings of the two of us, but im not really sure what it is exactly? (hers are coincidentally all checked, and mine stripped)
