The old adage, time is money is more relavant than ever in todays fast paced society. Every second counts and having to deal with unwanted phone calls is a pet peeve of mine. Enter The National Do Not Call Registry, a government database managed by the FTC that tells telemarketers not to call your number. After you register they have 31 days to stop calling you. After that you can report the offending number to the FTC using the same website. Here is the official description:

I'm putting this little page together for an Afrikaans rap outfit called "Die Antwoord". In english the bands name means "The Answer". I first came across them in a video interview on Boing Boing. Can't say I'm a big rap fan but there is something so real about these guys - they are incredible. The lead singer Ninza could be Morrisseys younger brother, the girl Yo-Landi in the band looks like she's 14 years old and progeria sufferer Leon Botha presence in the video makes the entire performance unlike anything I've ever seen.
Update Feb 2011 - I have just spent 5 hours or so trying to get my poor old 3G jailbroken and unlocked again. Six months ago the process did see a lot easier. HINT - Make sure you use the correct RedSn0w version AND the correct restore file. If you don't you'll waste half a day like me. You can't use a newer version of RedSn0w or start with iOS 4.1 !!

Quickfit / Quick fit fitness Studio you are officially on my shit list. On Tue Jan 24th an agent of yours was seen flyering cars in the Ideal Market / Vics Parking lot on Broadway. Ok, so you gotta get your message out somehow and even though I'm sure this is illegal as technically the parking lots in question are private property I am somewhat sympathetic to your cause.
But when I read the glossy full color flyer I was flabbergasted !! The leaflet proclaimed that they can help me loose 1-4 inches in less than an hour - sweet Jesus, what a crock of utter shite!!
Every time you begrudgingly remove your shoes for the nice TSA man at airport security send a bad though Mr Reid's way! Now when you're stripped down to your skivvies, send another nasty thought the Underpants Bomber's way too!!
Thanks to one Nigerian nutter, a Umar Abdulmutallab (AKA the Underpants Bomber) we'll all have to jump through more security hoops while flying this holiday season . There are no hard and fast rules so what happens at one airport may not happen at another. This is intentional so as to be unpredictable so the bad guys will have less of an idea how the new security protocol works.
This is what I've been able to ascertain from a bit of web research:
Here is the video I shot of the Thriller Flash Mob performance that took place on Halloween eve, 2009. (You can watch it in full screen goodness by clicking the four white outward facing arrows on the bottom right next to the Vimeo text.)
