Damn if These Ain’t the Coolest

Filed under: Geekery — bbluesman @ 11:28 am

These are absolutely the coolest looking guitars ever. Made by Semie Mosely-owner of Mosrite(same guitar Johnny Ramone played) and hand painted by latter-day pop icon Van Dutch. Selling on E-Bay. If you even buy 1 for me, I’ll be your best friend in the Ed Grimley-way.

Australia or Brazil National Team Phone?

Filed under: About Taiwan,epiphany,Geekery,News — bbluesman @ 4:43 pm

How about this snazzy cell phone with 1.3 million pixel camera, mp3 formatting, and compatabiliy with ScanDisk memory card. Best of all it's in Australia and Brazilian national team colors. You can be the hit of the football pitch with this phone-just in time for World Cup this summer. All yours for only US$400

Doggy Bag?

How much is that doggie in the push bag? What'll they think of next? Why bother to actually walk the dog when you have this handy-dandy wheeled pooch-pod? All for only US$30.

Taiwan gadget goodies

Filed under: About Taiwan,Geekery,My Word...,Taiwan Pop Culture — bbluesman @ 3:56 pm

Once you've done tidying the house with your lovely little robot vacuum cleaner, you might be tempted to nod off for a little bit. Fear not-this lovely nod-off alarm device will set you straight. We only want high-production slackers here. Wouldn't this be a great gift item for college students to use in "organic chemistry" and other tediously boring classes. Better still devise a gadget that shoots a stream of warm water on your wrist or ankle, causing you to… ah I think you know the rest.

I've been living in Asia and eating japanese food for over 30 years and I never knew these things. What a hoot. Check out video here.

Simpler is Better

Filed under: epiphany,Geekery,My Word... — bbluesman @ 2:01 pm

I can't explain why I get such a wonderful feeling when I sip from my blue glass tumbler. The little blue world within , the deep blue sheen of the liquid. Kind of like the feeling the dope dealing neighbor(Wes Bentley) of Kevin Spacey in American Beauty, would get when the empty baggie got caught up in a little whirlwind. I don't want to quantify or intellectuallize only enjoy.

I’ve decided to throw my lot in with Frank Key and others and lend my support to the “Eating Swans is Unacceptable” campaign. Yes, friends this is my entry into fowl activism. Ducks, chickens, cornish hens, and geese are all fair play.

Was having a bit of a geek epiphany with some fellow sci fi geeks on a Wingin’ It chat during taping of Wingin’ It 52. Karen form Kalifornia, Tee Morris, Summer Brooks, Simon and NeoDoug from the UK and Bronze Thumb from Oz were all in a group chat. Might even be better than actual show( sounds blasphemous). Supposedly, we’ll get a streamed feed of live show next time. Why am I writing about this? Why am i doing this? Hmm, maybe I’m becoming a geek myself.

TD-0013 move over

Filed under: Geekery — bbluesman @ 12:32 pm

Never thought I’d be saying this. TD-0013 who previously was my favorite personality/character on Wingin’ It, has been pushed aside, at least temporarily by Jimmy (Denver). Jimmy (Denver) is a caller who’s shtick is kind of spastic learning disabled guy selling magazines. Picture an audio mashup of the best of the Farelly Brothers and you get the idea. TD-0013 do I need to get the “Man in Black” on you?
