Weird


We are gone

There comes a time in one’s life where they must move on to bigger, better things. You can’t stay in you’re old ways, you must move on to new, more exciting things. Like, I don’t know, having your own domain? Yes, that’s right ladies and gentlemen. As of today, this site will no longer be used by the likes of Nate and I, we have spawned our own domain: www.lawnofthemonth.com. Don’t forget to update your RSS Reader. You know there’s some old person group out there wishing they would have jumped on that domain before we did. Oh well, slow people end last.

Update: Looks like I had to edit my picture because it was temporarily gone.

I’m an avid Digg user and I go there daily for my news. Today, May 1st, has been the weirdest day on Digg. Everyone is posting this secret HD-DVD code that allows you to strip off the DRM and watch them on your Linux box. It’s comes up for submissions and also randomly throughout every story as a comment. When a submission containing the”secret code” gets to the front page, it is immediately taken down.

Yes I know what the code is but I’m way to lazy to rip a HD-DVD just to watch it on a Linux box that I don’t have. I have nothing against pirates but I rather buy my movies from Best Buy because I like to have a physical media in my hands to collect. Music? Well that’s an entirely different story for a different time. I’m sure that if you really wanted the code, you would be able to find it. When will the industry learn that you can’t stop a committed community when it comes to DRM. Only time will tell.

I can’t believe the insanity that a maintenance gone too long has caused. People are literally going nuts without there Xbox Live fix. If you didn’t know Live is, or was by the time you read this, down for schedule maintenance. While visiting a forum I go to regularly, I noticed that most of the stories on the front page of the 360 forum are Xbox Live related. Everything from I love or hate Major Nelson (who has nothing to do with the keeping Live running) to we should sue Microsoft. If you really need that 30 cent back that was lost from the 60 bucks you spend a year on your subscription to Live then I’ll setup a PayPal account for you.

People are even speculating  different reasons for this “maintenance”,  saying that it is a cover to get the Halo 3 beta up and running…which would be awesome. But seriously who cares. I think around 10 tonight Major Nelson is going to let loose the secret that he works for Sony and he is the one who shut down Live. I mean seriously people, get a grip of your emotions. It’ll be up when it’s up. Then we can all go back to listen to that whinny 10 year old about how we are hogging the shotgun in Halo 2. Or even better, yelling at his mom to get him some chocolate milk.

The title says everything. Just press play and enjoy!

AssholeUsually I’m a nice, easy going type of guy. But when I read things like this it pisses me off. Let me let you into this rage I have for this guy.

So apprently this weak-minded 27 year old tool by the name of Tyrone Spellman killed his 17-month old daughter over a video game! This little bitch of a man, punched his little daughter twice in the face and then slung  her over a chair because pulled the cords on his console, causing it to fall to the ground. Are you as pissed as I am? Screw sending this asshole to jail, every other day let someone from the community or the family take a bat to his face for the rest of his life.

I have no tolerance for a man hitting a female and the fact that he punched his own daughter in the face over a damn video game system just makes me furious. May you burn in hell Tyrone and I hope the in-mates of the jail you get sent to find out why you were sent there in the first place. You’ll be lucky if you last a week.

Yeah, so I finally have something worth posting. Found this other guys blog about weird technology and gadgets. Some are completely useless, but are still freakin’ awesome. http://blog.coolz0r.com/category/gadgets-digital-toys/


When this alarm clock goes off, the puzzle pieces pop out. The only way to turn the alarm off is to put them back together. Genius.

And this shoe, well, I wouldn’t wear it…. but I bet Jermaine would.
