The End of the Internet?

Thursday, February 02, 2006 by Geoff

"Industry planners are mulling new subscription plans that would further limit the online experience, establishing "platinum," "gold" and "silver" levels of Internet access that would set limits on the number of downloads, media streams or even e-mail messages that could be sent or received."

Veni, Vedi, Vending Machine

Wednesday, February 01, 2006 by Geoff

All the vending machines at work last week were all removed from their respectable cubby holes along the walls. This week each cubby hole, which can house up to 3 vending machines were re-tiled, and are in the midst of being re-painted. These goings-ons can only mean one of one things. We are getting new vending machines! Yes, my excitement is uncalled for, but if you work where I work, or in a similar environment, you too would be excited. The previous/present vending machines, which are scattered haphazardly throughout the hallways have seen better days. Those better days, they occurred in the mid 80's, possibly even earlier.

Let me explain, our halls ways are separated into oasisssss, oasis A,B,C, and D. These oasi are where these vending machines are located. Each oasis has 3 vending machines: Juice/milk/chocolate milk machine, snack machine, and soda/water machine. Each machine is horribly out-dated, as if a caveman whittled them with a stone arrow-head and a round rock. The soda machine, which is a pepsi machine, which sells diet coke, features the pepsi logo of the mid 90's. The selector buttons on said machine features the diet-coke logo circa. 1988. And the water selector, the water selector says "WATER" written in handwriting.

I hoping we get some cool, space age machines. Maybe ones that take debit/credit cards, fore I rarely have cash on me. I would like fresh fruit to be an option also. Maybe even a sticker vending machine, or superball machine for those boring afternoons such as today's.

Snakes on a Plane

Tuesday, January 31, 2006 by Geoff

I really don't have anything to add to today's blog, except this:



I made it for some forum. Yes, I'm a dork. It made me laugh. In case you don't know what you are looking at, it is Sam Jackson's head on the body of legendary WWF/WWE wrestler Jake the Snake Roberts, whom is in a plane, because there are Snakes on a Plane. If for some reason you don't know, "Snakes on a Plane," is a real movie. Now you know.

note: I do have better photoshop skills, but it was late, I was tired, and did it in 2 minutes.

Whatcha listenin' to? Some crazy Russians!

Monday, January 30, 2006 by Geoff

Messer Fur Frau Muller, I read about them in this months URB, they were reviewing their newest album Triangle, Dot & Devil which I haven't heard yet, but I will hear it! I just finished listing to Allo, Superman! My thoughts? They have pretty interesting music. They use odd samples, fast breakbeats, crazy synths - they remind me of The Avalanches. I'm not saying they sound like them or anything, but that is the closest comparison. If you are a fan of The Avalanches, and other crazy sampled based music I would recommend Messer Fur Frau Muller, if you do not know what I'm talking about stay far, far, far away - for your head shall explode in sonic pleasure and fear. Feasure.

This is their homepage. Once you enter you can choose russian or english, choose english! ENNNGGGGLISH!
