I spent a couple of hours tonight at a little salsa event, so I'm all sweaty now and need to shower and get some work done before hitting the sack. Tomorrow is the career fair, so I should probably gey a solid 7 hours. Anyway, just a few quick stories I felt I might as well bring up:
So we all know that Jack Bauer is a complete and utter badass, right? Well if you want to be just like him then you'll love this roundup of things he uses. I thought it was just a ploy to buy some crap at first, but they seriously are the things he uses on the show. Very cool to check out, though I wonder why the knife costs like $300.
Some kid in New York is suing the record industry! I think this is pretty awesome. He's basically saying that he didn't really pirate music and the music industry is just trying to use intimidation tactics since he knows he didn't pirate music back when he was 11 years old. In fact, the music was for CDs he had already owned. His mother was also accused of piracy. He's countersuing for a number of things including defaming his reputation, taking focus away from his school work, legal fees, etc. I really hope he pulls this one off! It's not likely, but I'm rooting for him.
On the music topic, there's a new service in the works called Grooveshark that would not only pay royalties to the record labels but also compensate the users for uploading music, and all the music would be DRM-free. I signed up for more information, so I'll be sure to post when we know more. It sounds really awesome, I just have no idea how they plan on pulling this off.
Because I loved Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, I naturally had to mention that filming has begun on the sequel in Louisiana. If you remember the first movie, they're heading to Amsterdam to track down Maria, but they actually get detained in Gitmo because they think Kumar is a terrorist. It features a slew of comedians making appearances in it, so I hope it'll be funny!
One more thing, the entire Dead or Alive movie somehow found its way onto Google Video. I can't imagine that it'll stay there long, but enjoy it while it lasts.
Ah screw homework, I'll mind hump:
Favorite rock band?
The Red Hot Chili Peppers (who else?)
Favorite 80s song?
"Bizarre Love Triangle" by New Order
Favorite male singer?
Favorite female singer?
Sorry, but it's Mariah Carey. I don't care how embarrassing it is.
Favorite song for singing along?
In The Still of the Night, maybe. Too hard!
