Google: Still Around After The Holocaust

Oh crap. As you may recall from earlier posts that I:

1. Have been watching some tv but I didn't tell you that I've been diggin' on Jericho
2. Love Google

Well, I nearly choked on this episode when at the last the FBI agent was contacted about lying when lo and behold Google Earth pops up on his computer. Google is still around after the holocaust. And, they're working with Nasa and, apparently, the FBI. Woo Whoo! Go Google.

I'm a freak.

Monster Commercials Rock

I've never confessed to you my love for Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). Monster's commercials rock.

My Review of

I signed up to be a member of Review Me. In case you haven't noticed, I am a big fan of all things tangible. I do like to keep up with the latest and greatest of everything and if I can bring good information to you and make a wee bit of a living at it then I'm going to and I encourage each of you to do the same. That is what Review Me will allow, at least as I see it now.

What is Review Me? Review Me is a site that will pay you to review things on your blog. Your pay is based on certain factors like how many readers you have and other popularity factors. Now, this isn't to say that every post will be a review by any stretch. But every once in a while, you may find one and I hope that you will find value in it. Truth be told, I'm still a bit leary of it all and am anxious to see how it all plays out. This may turn out to be a passing fad instead of a means by which to earn a little green.

What's On Your Tube?

Well, Lost isn't on tonight and so I must fill the void with something besides sitting around on the internet... And so it was that I discovered Sleeper Cell on Showtime's on demand series.

I was feeling pretty hooked but tonight, after watching episode three and hearing my beloved group, The Distillers, I knew right then that I was hooked. Call it crazy but it resonates well with me to hear music that I actually like in a show. And the particular song, City of Angels, was, at least in my limited perception of reality, a little known song but it is the one that rocks the most.

Other shows that I am watching now or are eargerly anticipating the return of include:

Battle Star Galactica

What are you watching?

On Skype

I've got Vonage and it works well. I'm pleased about the low prices that I get. I'm also a Google lover and try to stay on top of all things Google. Yesterday I was alerted that there was new software to download by my Google updater. Come to find out it was Skype. Now, I had been thinking about adding Skype to my toolkit but it was conveniently laid before me by my beloved Google.

But my mind now ponders, what is the advantage to Google to include that as a downloadable application? Doesn't Ebay own Skype? Where does this lead and what does the future hold, I wonder. I must have missed the discussion on Google/Skype for surely there must be one... there's always a story.

So, I've downloaded the Skype and tried to go through the set up but seem to be lacking the test link. Anyway, do you use Skype? I need to add some contacts! I was also in Office Depot today and saw the Skype Cordless phone. Oooohhhhhh....

The Begging Continues

I previously posted my official 2006 Christmas Wish List. For those wealthy readers, please feel free to purchase any item on my Christmas Wish List and have it sent to me. Thank you!

Here is an addition to my list. This, as it turns out, is a VERY good deal as Wal-Mart had it for $1400 and was charging shipping and sales tax. At the time of this posting, this item is less than $1400 with free shipping and no sales tax.

We Rented Bully

Saw Bully at the Video Store. Rented it and while I don't play video games myself, my teenage daughter played it and I got to watch. I thought it was quite humorous and one does take some pleasure in getting back at the bullies.

Still Not Done: My Official 2006 Christmas Wish List

I've added more stuff. I'm a big kid at heart, really. If there is anyone out there with more money than they can spend here are a few ideas for you. Spend a little of that expendable dough on me... I'm begging, I know.
1. The Slingbox

2. CityKitti

3. The Game Formerly Known As Deflexion

4. The Roomba (Yes, I'd even take it remanufactured)

5. The Scooba

6. This Cordless Phone Set. It's so cool that it only requires one phone jack. This works really well for those who have Vonage like I do.


8. Home Security

I Am A Lot Of Things

But an Irish pop singer I am not. What am I talking about?

Someone I gave birth to composed and performed the intro music to this (up to the heartbeat).

I saw a story on EnviroMission. They are building a tower that will use air to create energy. I often wondered, and this may sound very crazy, about how we might harness the very hot air of certain regions and pump it into other areas of the globe as heat. Now you may chuckle. Hardily if you wish.
