So the iPhone 3GS is about to drop. (I just got an iPhone 3G, so I’m eligible to return it and get this new one.) This is what’s most important about it: GPS (which determines the device’s location) + digital compass (which determines the device’s current direction it’s being pointed in) + tilt sensors (which […]

Feist on Sesame Street
This makes Mr. Grumpy Dude happy. Shut up.
Yes, Joss Whedon, I have bought your Internet TV thingy.
I now have $1.04 in my iTunes account, thanks to Joss Whedon. I hope your hard work is worth $3.99 of my hard-earned (by living for 30 years so my parents would give me an iTunes gift card for my birthday) money, Mr. Whedon. (I’m kidding. It’s totally worth $3.99, even if it’s only a […]
He just keeps saying he's "the Firestarter"
New Venture Bros. is up on Adult Swim for your (lo-res) viewing pleasure. Brilliant. Bonus quiz: how many of the 80s video icons in the steam tunnels can you name? I got Michael Jackson in “Thriller” of course, the dude from Alphaville’s “Forever Young”, and of course the Art of Noise (with the little girl […]
This is why I adore the Venture Brothers

Finished Life On Mars
Both seasons, and God, was it good. A good cop show, a good weirdo show. Bittersweet, lovely ending. Now, if they’ll release it on DVD in America, you can check it out.
I've Been Watching Too Much British TV Recently
After watching two episodes of Life On Mars in a row, I almost called my dad “Guv” when he came into the living room a few minutes ago. Reminds me of when Alex was in the middle of watching the first season of The Wire on DVD and, when his mom called him up, called […]
Life On Mars?
I checked out the first episode of the 2006 BBC series Life On Mars, which I missed on BBC America and had heard good things about. And indeed, I wasn’t disappointed: judging by the first episode, this looks pretty interesting. The short version: a Manchester cop named Sam Tyler is tracking a serial killer. Unfortunately, […]
