Mad Magazine

It's what all the smart guys in the future will read.

Kim got me this Schecter Hellraiser in Black Cherry for my birthday. Can't believe they finally had one in stock that didn't have bats on the fretboard. Coil taps on the volume knobs (yes, 2 knobs so I can go all Ace Frehley with the pickup switch).

How Hard Can It Be?

We use FileMaker Pro for tracking our bugs at work. It's shared among developers and testers/support. If one person is editing a record, nobody else can use that record; can't even scroll a scrolling text field if it contains more text than is visible (which is a pretty stupid UI peculiarity). Everybody knows this, but it seems like I'm the only person who remembers it when I use the db. Everybody else will leave records "active" and then go do something else or even go home for the day, preventing everybody else from being able to edit it. We've used the same db since about 1998, yet people still do this on a daily basis and I have to send them a message asking if they're done editing the bug, when I really know they just aren't using their goddamn brain. Like right now I'm looking at a bug that's assigned to me and nobody has any business editing, yet somebody in Peoria clicked into it or something and now I can't do a fucking thing.

I'm just bitching. This pisses me off. Ah! 21 minutes later he finally gets my email and clicks out of the bug.

A Prayer for Cool

This is great. A modern film shot on Super8. I love the expression Foo Man Lou gives after Smokey hands him a cigarette.

Flustered by the presence of super smooth biker "Smokey", Foo Man Lou attempts to kick start his new chopper. Frustrated with Foo Man's failed attempts and lack of finesse, Smokey has just about had it until a visit from the divine changes Foo Man Lou forever.
