So this past Thursday I went to Bellevue w/ homie-coworker Jon for an Adobe conference. There were two significant things I learned at this conference:
1. The Adobes are so hot right now.
2. The Man ain't kiddin' around!
I was under the impression that the new line of Adobe products
was just a minor upgrade, but oh no, they've changed some fundamental stuff that relates to preserving the actual pixels of each layer/object when you mess with them... so you can scale something down, then back up, and there's no loss of detail. I think it's a major step that's finally been taken now that computers can handle it better. Vanishing point is hot-t-t. Very hot. Am I now brainwashed by Adobe? Maybe. Brainwashed with hotness. Jon won a book!
Enough of this tech talk. I also met The Man. The Man is a bowl of hot sauce that an equally mysterious real man carries around Dixie's BBQ
. "Haveyoumettheman?" he says to everybody eating, with a great accent I cannot reproduce here. "Getbackoverheredammit! Youhaven'tmettheman!" Cracks me up. And then he set my face on fire via a pea-sized portion of The Man on my bbq ribs. It wasn't too bad at first - "The Man's got some kick!" I told him. "Heain'tdonekickingyouyet!" So true. Over the next 20 minutes my eyes began to water, and my lips turned first to fire, then to pain incarnate, then numb.
The Man is no hotsauce, it must be a chemical compound that has a highly violent reaction to BBQ sauce. Mix that with some stinky tofu
and you've got a biological weapon.
, er ahem, *fantastic football* the other day. Got some killer grass stains on my cords - bummer. What's the difference between ultimate frisbee and fantastic football? Fantastic football outlaws any additional equipment you wouldn't carry with you for a jog in the park, and is only played by people who are vomit-ready from exhaustion after one quarter. We're top in the league.
So I have a correction from the last post - the person I've been seeing did not sniff me out on Google and post a comment. Instead it was... none other than... Saundrah
, violin/vox from Math and Physics Club
! Ain't that somethin'? It's like I'm in 'the scene'! They're real neat, go buy their stuff!
It should be noted that Andrea was responsible for me going to the MAPC show last week.
I'm going to California in less than a month! I'm very excited. I really need to call my sister and tell her I'm coming, though...
I found something neat that made me remember how fun pro wrestling can be - Kaiju Big Battel
! It's a cross between wrestling and ridiculously corny Japanese-style 50' monsters. I was actually hoping for more monsters and less wrestling, but it was still a fun video to watch. Los Plantanos
are my heroes.
After a few weeks of waiting I finally got my pirate joke book
in the mail, thank you very much, United Kingdom. Now I can finish fleshing out Pir8Jokes.com
. I'm a little disappointed that I've only received one joke submission over the past couple months, but I haven't really been spreading the word that much, so perhaps that's why. I still need to finish several things on there, too. Yet another almost-but-not-quite finished project. Now that it's sunny my desire to sit in front of the computer all day is fading pretty fast.
Ok, so my roommate is a hair stylist. As such, there are hair products all over the place. One that really piques my interest is some thingamajig from Dermalogica
, which claims to be the product line of the International Dermal Institute. I thought this was a bunch of malarky, but it turns out such an organization exists
. Not that I would doubt that there is one, but that they are responsible for a highly-designed hair product line... seemed shady to me. I like how the middle button on their site is a Three's Company reference.

I want to meet the Man! The Man appears to be less than 2 miles from Kim's apt...hmm.
I'm the only one that has submit a pirate joke? That is lame. I will have to post more and give people something to shoot for.
P.S. you and Jon are bastards. You know why.
