Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure: Factual Error: There is a heinous...– One of the best IMDB goofs ever written
Okay, so apparently there was an Xbox dev program, called Community Developer Program, but it’s closed to applicants since they hit their desired maximum of 50 PEOPLE. Yes, that’s not a fucking typo—FIVE ZERO PEOPLE. How fucking stupid does a company have to be to have millions of users, thousands of interested developers, and only allow 50 people into the development program?...
Why is there no web API for Xbox Live friends, games, etc? How difficult would it be to create a development program where I can register for a key and then I can use a simple API to build an app that lets me see who is online, what they’re playing, and so on? There are apps that do this, but they all use the full HTML of each page at the Xbox Live website and they use regex to pull...
The key to being a good manager is keeping the people who hate me away from...– Casey Stengel
The last six months have been a period of working on things we haven’t shown to the general public, so I’m glad to say we’re currently shooting a short film that will be released before the year is over. It’s the first time we’re using my recently acquired 35mm lens adapter on top of HD, so it looks gorgeous. We’re nearly done shooting and we have tight...
The New Xbox Experience, summed up in a single word that I possibly use too frequently—but I’m not going to stop using because it’s a great word for describing a lot of things (maybe not as many things as I use it to describe, although it’s all subjective anyway so who are you to tell me it’s not a fine word to use so much?)—in all caps to really drive home just...
Shawn Morrison: Well, assuming you have at least one other pair of shoes, I say you forget Mr. UPS and go see if my package is there.
Me: Well, see, therein lies the problem. Because I knew I had shoes being delivered today, I went and burned all my other shoes.
Me: Stupid idea, sure, but it made sense at the time.
Shawn Morrison: Did it?
Me: Alright, fine, it didn't.
Me: I'm trying to secure cats to each foot to use as temporary shoes, but they're not cooperating.
Me: It's also surprisingly hard to balance while standing on guts.
Me: I just got back from solving my winter coat issue. $400 poorer.
Brian Fling: Oh crap. What did you get, a mink?
Me: Well, $300 poorer for the coat, $100 more for a few hats and some gloves.
Brian Fling: For some reason I'm picturing you dressed like a pimp now.
Me: Yeah, I got one with that fur collar.
Me: And rhinestones everywhere.
Me: On the back it says "THE MAN" in metal studs.
Brian Fling: Did they throw in the cane for free?
Me: Yeah, and also they told me which street is my territory.
Brian Fling: Nice.
So let me get this straight—the McCain aides and staffers are leaking all this supposed Palin-is-a-douche info to the press now because they’re pissed off they didn’t win and they want to blame someone and Palin is an easy target because, well, she is a douche, but: THEY PICKED HER. Worse yet, are they admitting to us now that she’s a complete moron and a horrible choice...
Lil’ Bill O’Reilly “Is there a difference between the democrats and the Nazis? I can’t see it!”
SNL: Countdown with Keith Olbermann This is long, but it’s worth it (especially if you’ve ever watched Countdown). It takes a few minutes for Affleck to get into the impression, but then he starts to nail it and it gets better and better from there.
I have to admit the elation from last night’s results are soured some this morning by California passing proposition 8. It’s disgraceful that today, in 2008, people are still making it a goal to keep rights away from people based on their sexual preference. Even more depressing is looking at a county-by-county breakdown of voting results, seeing that only 10 or so counties voted no....
We did it. We did, you and I, the generation everyone thought were too lazy or too detached or too careless. We did it. We, the generation who believe that our government should work for us, not against us. We, the generation who doesn’t care about race, who doesn’t judge people for their sexual or religious preference. We did it. God damn what a good day.
