Sit back, relax and enjoy the jolly trumpeting of a Nebraska beauty pageant entrant as she blow her trumpet to the very appropriate accompaniment of "Star Wars". Note that it's not just a trumpet but an intergalactic light saber phallic thingy too! In tribute to Al Gores recent victory we also get to see her walk like a Penguin. This is my new fave video for absolute silliness.
I stumbled upon a website called Animoto. Upload 10 photos or more, add a sound track they provide and hit the magic button and out pops a MTV style remixed video of your photos. The kool thing is that no two videos will be the same and if you don't like the mix they create the first time around then you have the option to remix it again and get different effects. This is gonna be hot peeps!
Was on my way to the Polaris Husky Rescue when I came across a bike parade on Main St. The 2007 "Tour de Fat" is an annual bike parade through the streets of down town Ft. Collins Colorado.
(This articles describes my experience with external computer microphones.) I've been doing the internet voice chat thing for years, mainly to talk to the family back in Africa so I've had my fair share of microphones in the past.

I came home the other day to find a brightly colored yellow flyer taped to my front door. When you see such a thing the first thought that pops into your head is that perhaps it's some kind of public service announcement "Gas leak, do not enter" or "Will be turning off the water at such and such a time - be advised ..." But on this occasion is was none of the above - it turned out to be a shameless promotion for "Hazardous Tree Removals and Stump Grinding"!
I like to start off by saying that I don't yet own an iPhone but I'd like to post my impressions of it here from the 30 minutes of intimate time we spent together at my local Apple Store here in Boulder on Friday 29th of June 2007. The photos to the left were take with an iPhone at the Apple Store (modified with ImageWell).
I just came across this on the Interwebs, it actually turned out to be an urban ledgend buy it appears to work at least for shorter words, fascinating none the less!

Ladies and Germs, I give the the Hyundai Atos "a city car" my mom just bought. This is what R69000 ($10000) gets you in sunny South Africa. No Airbags, no ABS and stability control, forget it! I I inquired about the Euro Ncap saftey rating and my mom just laughed at me - South African's don't need none of those safety nannies!! My mom added that she's been driving on some of the most dangerous roads in the world for the past 30 years in an old BMW320i sans airbags and ABS! Yeah, BooYah! BooooooYahhhh go South Africa!
Poor George, on a recent scenic jaunt through Rome his limo broke down and he was forced to get out and jump into another one. Silliness aside, did you know that the Cadillac DTS he drives is not really a caddy but a vehicle based on a GM truck chassis with a specialized engine, built by a company now owned by the Brit defense contractor BAE. So have a chuckle and learn an interesting fact for use at your next cocktail party (George Bush's Limo is a British assembled truck that is prone to breaking downs when in Rome).
Below are my perosnal notes on a Canyoneering trip I took to the Escalante region in southern Utah during the Memorial day weekend 2007. Feel free to add comment at the end and contact me personally if you want to know more about the outdoor group I belong Chaos Boulder. We normally takes a jaunt down to the slot canyons in southern Utah in the Spring and Fall each year. On this trip I was sans my biatch Dan so I rode with AJ. We left Boulder at about 4pm getting there at around 1.30am.
