Sometimes I wonder about the nature of what it really is to be human. I just finished "Foundation and Earth."

Countdown to Leopard

Well, it's now officially less than a week until Mac OS X v1.5 - Leopard is released. It's at times like this that I really wish I had one of the new Intel MacBook Pros. You can either wait until it's out or pre-order from Apple or Amazon. Although, I'm still getting quite a bit of use out of my three-year-old PowerBook.

Fast food?

I recently stumbled upon this video on YouTube! that features ingredients from a common "food" found in many American kitchens. However, after watching the video, you'll realize why I opted to put food in "Nixon Quotes." (For those of you wondering about my choice of expression, I intended to reference some nice Wikipedia article; I couldn't.)

I couldn't sleep -- not unusual, and I was reading through my backlog of RSS feeds -- also quite common, and I came across this post on the Google Operating System blog discussing the availability of new video units with AdSense on YouTube!. After poking around through the links in the post, I came across an older one that mentioned the ability to link Google accounts with YouTube! accounts -- something I had wanted to be able to do for some time now, and I found myself poking around in my YouTube! account setting. I discovered I can upload a video from my cell phone, and it even works correctly with Sprint's mangled support for MMS that keeps it from working properly with almost any sort of web service targeted at getting images and video from one's cell phone to the Interweb. Well, enough digression... What resulted is this:

While I've still don't know if having videos automatically show up as a blog post is possible, I bet someone has already solved this problem. I can at least put the nifty player below on my blog somewhere on my blog and have it display videos as I post them.

Admittedly, I should apoligise for subjecting unsuspecting internet users to my ugly mug, but hey... it could be worse; at least I'm not ranting about gay sex or something much, much more bizarre -- WARNING! -- NSFW -- or for sanity for that matter.

Don't Download This Song

I just discovered this video thanks to Amber Mac's blog post here.

Also, for those of you who would prefer a more direct message, try this video:

I'm just back from Waffle-House. It seems strange that it's non-smoking now. I'll post pictures of the last cigarettes later.
