Ukulele Jake

Wow is all I can say. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on Ukulele. This video, is badass. Sorrry, but it's in MOV format, you can find a WMV version on Spiked Humor, but the quality is lower. If you like music at all, you should check this out.

It does seem odd to play a song about a guitar, on a ukelele...oh well, better than a flute I suppose. The artist is Jake Shimabukuro.

A Car That Drives Itself

Looks like GM is going to be the first to make a self-driving car.

You can read the article about it and maybe Google it a little bit to read more. I'd rather muse about the great possibilities with this car.

You could go out drinking all night and still get your car home. You could read a book on your way to work everyday. You could talk on your cell phone (because nobody does that while driving right?). Ever have sex in the back seat of a car? While it was going down the road? With nobody in the front? Or perhaps roadhead? This would be excellent for a minivan and a road trip. Eat, drink, read, screw, sleep, whatever. I didn't really think I'd see it in my lifetime, I may never have one, but it's cool to think I might. Perhaps when I'm 85 and not capable of driving anymore, my car can do it for me....While I masturbate to in-dash internet porn.

Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory

This is certain to be satire, but it is easily believable given the group that it pokes fun at. Just as soon as the Miserable Failure himself succeeds in erasing the seperation of church and state, we'll probably have to criminalize science. Fucking neocons.

T-Shirt Hell

I'm a fan of T-Shirt hell. I like offensive things. They have a few new shirts posted today, have a look.

What I am really blogging about is the newsletter I get from them every month. Here is the first paragraph:

Word on the street is that Aston Kutcher and Demi Moore are trying to have a baby. Demi has 3 children with former husband Bruce Willis: Rumer, Scout LaRue, and Tallulah Belle. If the new child is a girl, she plans on naming her Doorknob Underpants; and if it's a boy, Kick My Ass And Take My Lunch Money. As for why they're having a child, Kutcher is said to be desperate for an intellectual and emotional equal; while Demi is just looking for someone new, and younger to fuck.

There is always something worth reading in them, They also respond to hate mail in each newsletter. If you like what you read, sign up for the newsletter, the link is...ah hell, find your own link this time.

Tried to ammend my carnivorous habits...

I have eaten at two Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurants in the Indianapolis area. I was impressed, each time I've been has been during the week, and each time there was live music. I love live music, that was almost enough to sell me on the place. Then I had a look at the menu. I ordered the Cheeseburger in Paradise burger, it comes with (yep, you can guess) Lettuce and tomatoe, Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes, a big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer (on request for an extra fee). I decided to bastardize it a bit by adding bacon, and I ordered it medium instead of medium rare, I'm sure Jimmy wouldn't mind too much. The price isn't bad when you consider you get atmosphere, waitpersons and live music.

If you need a little more Buffett from this post, then have a look at Radio Margaritaville. You can also get it on Sirius Radio channel 98, or Dish network channel 6098. I love technology.

Add this to my wishlist

If anyone out there is trying to find the perfect gift for my home here it is. It's a steam bath / shower / whirlpool / etc. It's large, room for two, well, probably more if you want to push it a bit. Anyway, if anyone wants to buy this for me, they have free shipping. Oh, I'll need a bigger bathroom as well.
