Jukebox Fun

I’m trying to make a digital jukebox. Here’s My MP3 Collection so far (this link is an Excel spreadsheet). Most are legit MP3s, for the record. EMusic.com is an excellent legit MP3 source. They pay royalties to the artists. Sounds good to me! But yeah, I’m as guilty as most, in the respect that I used Napster and Audiogalaxy to get some hard-to-find and selected tracks.

I love my new Yamaha CRW2100FXZ (Lightspeed 16x10x40x External Firewire CD-RW). I highly recommend it. Got it at Outpost.com for $149 after rebate… a VERY good deal. Been using it for some well-overdue archiving and also for ripping more MP3’s.

Just bought a copy of Tropico this afternoon, after playing the demo for a couple hours last night. It rocks. Bonus, it works in Mac OS X… but haven’t tried it yet since I’m a OS 9 devotee. Anyhoo… I love sim games. But I have been almost afraid to play SimTower, one of my favorites, because it reminds me too much of the WTC. 🙁

X-Files tonight. I’m sure you’ve all heard that it’s the final season. Time for me to admit that it’s on its last legs.

Enough links from me for tonight. I’m working tomorrow, so enjoy the holiday, those of you that have it off, and take a moment to remember Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy.

I Scream, You Scream

Anyone like Cold Stone Creamery? They finally opened one in Waikiki and I hit it up while on a business excursion yesterday, on a bright sunny afternoon. Ah, the pains of working in Hawaii. I had a regular sized coffee ice cream with a fresh brownie mix-in and caramel. Yum. Anyone have a favorite concoction there (hint hint, post some comments)?

More stuff I like. Quirky cute characters from San-X Japan. Now you know where I find my Afro Ken stuff. 😉

Tonight is Happy Family Plan night on KIKU channel 9. IT IS TIME TO FACE YOUR DESTINY!

root beer ramblings

Yesterday I was so excited to go to the ONLY A&W restaurant on Oahu. It’s all the way down Nimitz Highway, past the airport, near the Navy Golf Course. It’s weird, too, because it’s a combo A&W/Long John Silvers. I was disappointed because the workers decided to make the root beer floats BEFORE making the food. By the time I got back to the office, the floats had a golf-ball sized bit of ice cream left. Blah. But the root beer was good. Ah well, maybe next time.

Slow day at work… first one in a long time. Come visit us. 😀

The Luxo iMac

Say Hello to iMac, again. It’s so cute, I want to pinch its processor. I’ve already dubbed it the “Luxo iMac” because it looks like Pixar’s Luxo Jr. 🙂

As with most new Apple product releases, it’s sooo cool, I want one, but don’t need one, it’s too much money. Buy me one. 😉 Bummed that I couldn’t be at MacWorld SF this year, but hey, there’s always next time… and it’ll be bigger and better every time.
