Char Aznable Action Base

If you're as impatient as me you often brush things by in the store quickly, not often gathering all the details. One such item for me was the Char Aznable theme's action base for 1/1444 & 1/100 scale kits. The bag art contains pictures of the stand covered with Zeonic & Char markings. For a while I thought, "that's nice, shame I don't have any of Char's Gunpla or it would be a good fit" moving on to the clear action bases instead. What use would a Char detailed stand for my RX-87-2? Well, turns out the detail makings aren't actually the base at purchase, but they come as a sticker sheet with each base. Granted I notice now there's a small thing on the front pointing that out but the pictures give no indication. (There's no way in hell the marking in the photo are stickers) Lesson of the story?

Dear Firefod design developers...

I'm sorry but the default Mac theme for Firefox 3?
Click for Larger
It's absolute rubbish. The old default theme for FF2 was a lot better. According to FF's website... """Platform-Native Look & Feel The new Firefox looks and feels like home. Think of it as a Firefox who’s really good at making friends. Whether you use Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac or Linux, the browser seamlessly integrates into your computer’s environment. A native look makes for a flawless interface that never gives you pause.""""" That's just awful. I don't want Firefox to look like the rest of Finder's gray gradients. Maybe if it were just one, okay. But I'm looking at at least four different ones right now. WTF....a;foiasd;fohas;kdhfklasdhfklashf I need another beer.

FOX rips off Cover Flow

Less than half an hour ago I sat down to catch some classic Simpsons, particularly Radio Bart, the one where Bart ticked Springfield about a boy being stuck in a well, later to fall in himself. During an early commercial break I noticed something familiar, Apple's Cover Flow. However to my surprise it wasn't yet another cheesy Mac ad, but a commercial for the local FOX 5 News...

Mmmmmm... Change

Huffington Post is reporting on an interesting story, McCain has chosen a new logo and slogan. Let's just say they were a tad "inspired" by Barak Obama's campaign. The problem is, when I look at McCain's new logo & slogan, something else comes to mind...

Oh, sorry if it looks like shit, 'twas a really quick edit. 30min by my count, made worse by by game six of the Stanley Cup finals. Go Penguins! (Nothing against the Red Wings, but I'm from PA and you have enough god damn Cups)

Experience you say?

First of all…WAY TO GO OBAMA!

That’s right! Obama has officially secured the amount of delegates necessary to be the 2008 Democratic Nominee for President. After 52 primaries the Democratic Party can now, hopefully (and in theory), unite together and work towards winning in November.

This morning, I was watching a clip on YouTube of Barack Obama’s victory speech from Minnesota. While watching I scrolled down and read some comments STILL about Obama’s “inexperience.” Now I don’t know people’s party affiliation (not that there is a huge difference between Republicans and Democrats in the grand scheme of things), but when people talk about Obama’s “inexperience” I get pretty flustered. AND I turn to looking at the FACTS…

College kid gets screwed again!

A week or so ago my parents opened up their mailbox to find a check for $1,200 - meet their "economic stimulus" package from the government. Now that's all good and well for my parents, they could use an extra $1,200 for all the home remodeling they want to do around the house; but, where's my stimulus package?

I have a Social Security Number, an income higher than $3,000 and I filed a tax return. Those are the main three conditions on the Internal Revenue Services main page about the stimulus package. BUT...read the fine print and no such economic luck for this 21 year old college student because my parents can claim (and do claim) me as a dependent!
