Here is the quick review from the brave eater...
I'm not sick and I say I would eat this thing again if it weren't so expensive.
And I relly must say that this propably is faaaar better when you're many kilometers away from civilization on top of some mountain and you can whip out a cheeseburger with nearly the same quality as a McDonald's cheeseburger while your friend eats dry bread or power bars.

Canned Hamburger


Ooooh, how delicious! You can enjoy this tasty hamburger right out of the can on the road, at the table or in the tent. I wonder if it tastes as good as it looks.

Asus EeePC vs. Everex CloudBook

I have been looking into possibly getting one of these super cheap laptops and have been doing some comparisons. (Don't know why Blogger is having issues with displaying my table under this text :-/)

Battery2.8-3.5hrs5+ battery lifeCloudbook
Cost$399$399Tie
Overall Score1010Personally I like the Cloudbook more because of the 30GB drive


Weight - Both weighing in at around 2lbs. Winner: Tie
Display - Both displays are 7". Winner: Tie
OS - With Everex's gOS being Ubuntu-based I may have to go with it but that is a jaded point of view. Winner: CloudBook
Memory - Both can be upgraded to 1GB. Winner: Tie
Storage - I like the Solid State Hard Drive in the Asus EeePC but I like being able to have a larger hard drive. This one is a personal preference. Winner: Cloudbook on size and EeePC on technology
CPU - I don't really know any stats on either so I can't make a good judgment call. Winner: ?
Camera - Wouldn't use it anyways but since they are the same it is a tie. Winner: Tie
Battery - The winner is the Cloudbook if it lives up to what it promises. Winner: Cloudbook
Cost - Same price. Winner: Tie
Other - 1)My girlfriend likes that you can get the Asus EeePC in different colors including pink. 2)The touchpad/mouse for the Cloudbook looks pretty weak (above keyboard on right and left side, see pic) but if you plan on plugging in your own mouse then it should be fine. Winner: EeePC
Overall - I really like both of them but with the specs I have right now I would have to go with the Cloudbook. Winner: Cloudbook

I Hate About.com

Photobucket


Every now and then I get up on my soapbox and bitch and moan about something that pisses me off....this post is no different

So today I was searching for some information on Google just like I do everyday of my life. I got my result set and started opening all the links that looked promising (in other tabs) as I went down the list. Once I got through the first page of Google's results I decided to start going through the tabs that I opened. First tab, about.com (aka crap). Second tab, about.com (aka shit). Third tab, about.com (aka kaka). Fourth and fifth tabs, not about.com and finally some good and useful information. I don't know if any of you have stumbled across or know anything about about.com, but it sucks! I have never, and I mean NEVER, found anything useful on an about.com page. Nothing pisses me off more than ending up on these pages. I usually pay attention to the actual URLs before I open them but sometimes when I am not paying attention the shit-ass site catches me off guard. Make no mistake, about.com is a parasite on the web that needs to be permanently blocked by search engines.

Lets do a little example, Google Search - TV Wakeboarding Tournament Schedule. Hey guess what the first two hits are? Yup you guessed it, About.com. Let's go ahead and take a look a these two links. The first link, TV Tournament and Event Schedule, Waterskiing and Wakeboarding on ... looks amazing when you read the title but once you get the site you realize that it is complete shit. The link doesn't even have a schedule of any sorts. It does direct you to a site that could possibly have a schedule, but after visiting that site too you realize that it sucks just as bad as the first. Thanks about.com! The second link Tournament TV Schedule - Waterskiing/ Wakeboarding Archives doesn't look nearly as good as the first link but it may give some insight on channels, other sites, etc. Nope, it is complete kaka showing you absolutely nothing! Thanks again about.com for wasting my time. A few more down the list and about.com shows up again, but I am not even going to open this one up because it is obviously not what I am looking for....but it is a link a ordinary user might open. Then guess what!? The next two links actually have some useful information about a wakeboarding schedule on TV!! Hooray!! It sucks that you have to wade through all the about.com crap before you can actually get some results that you were searching for. This one was just a quick and simple example but may are worse.

So this is more of a plea to Google and other search engines. Please block about.com from your search results so that this horrible parasite on the web can die!

"Choke" Movie Review

Photobucket

...Chuck Palahniuk is my favorite author, and I’ve been waiting a long time to see Choke adapted to the big screen (and even longer for my Palahniuk favorite Survivor). Most people know Palahniuk as the author of Fight Club, which was adapted to the screen by David Fincher. A favorite of many people of my generation, Palahniuk has developed a huge cult following among young men and women. Choke is probably my fourth favorite book of the bunch, yet I’m shocked that this is the second movie adaptation. Especially considering the dark nature of the book which includes sex addiction and religious themes that is likely to upset any serious catholic.

Truth is that you couldn’t make Choke into a movie unless you did it independently on a small budget. And that is what they did. Made for $3.4 million, and filmed over the course of 25 shooting days in New Jersey, Choke looks nothing like Fincher’s film. I must admit, it doesn’t look like anything I ever imagined it would be, probably due to the budgetary limitations. That said, I loved every minute of this movie.

Sam Rockwell is everything I imagined Victor Mancini would and could be. He plays the part perfectly, and is the reason why this film works so well. Kelly Macdonald is wonderful as Paige Marshall. The cast is the best it ever could have been.

As a fanboy of the book, I’m finding it easier to voice my minor nitpicky complaints over offering up praise. So let me get through a couple of my issues. The book’s opening chapter is one of the best opening chapter’s I’ve ever read. The narrator attempts to convince the reader not to read the book. That his life is not worth reading about. I think they missed a huge opportunity by not translating this into a “Leave the theater now, shut off the DVD, this movie isn’t worth watching” opening voiceover. Also, writer/director Clark Gregg decided to abandon use of the voiceover shortly after the first act. I think this is a big mistake as the voiceover in the novel is one of the reasons it was so great. And this is evident in the sequences which involve voice over early on in the film. I’m not quite sure that the flashback sequences to Vincent’s childhood was well explained for those who had not read the book. And I also found some of the musical score (not soundtrack) to be too loud and corny. I hope they also get rid of the interstitial they use between flashbacks and flashfowards, as it seemed way too cheesy for this type of movie.

Choke shocks, offends, entertains and might even make you cry. Clark Gregg’s adaptation will please fans and non-fans alike. At only 85 minutes, I only wish the film could have been longer. I hope that some distributor has the guts (no pun intended) to pick this film up and give it a proper release.

/Film Rating: 8 out of 10

I HAZ Ginger!

There are many customizable start pages around the web including iGoogle, Pageflakes and my fav Netvibes. This morning Netvibes released a Beta version called Ginger for a select amount of users. I read about this on Tech Crunch and was too late to get an invite from them....but a little hard work, determine and Google and I found myself an invite code from Wired!

What's new with the Ginger release? So far I have noticed a few things 1)You can create your normal personal page as well as a new 'Universe' page that can be viewed by friends and others. 2)Better customization settings including themes, backgrounds and profile settings. 3)The thing I really like is the new interface to add content to your page. Here is a small snapshot of my new page and me looking for new content....

Lippi Selk Sleeping Bag

Photobucket
Little did you know, there actually is a sleeping bag that you can wear. The Lippi Selk Sleeping Bag ($175) is a sleeping bag/suit that is designed to keep you warm while allowing you the mobility that in the worst of conditions can keep you alive. Because crossing cold rivers or climbing up the side of a mountain can be rough. We tried to climb up the side of Space Mountain, and we didn't even make it half way before we had to defend ourselves with laser guns. True story. Those damn Disney security guards have stuff you haven't even heard of.

This sleeping bag is sweet! I would probably sleep in it every night and then lounge around in it all day! You can find them in assorted colors here
