Taiwan

Comin @ ya from Tainan, Taiwan.

Got the call last Friday, been here since Tuesday night (local time), Monday night (Eastern time). Flew in to Kaushiung at about 10pm; waited almost 90 minutes for the hotel pickup. Had to work the next morning, of course.

Did get the last installment of my VA money tho, thank goodness.

Stressing about filing my taxes this year... Now I'm not sure if I'mma be home before they need to get taken care of.

Got smashed last night.... Paid for it, big time. I'm drinked out for a while.

Uploading some pics to flickr, check out my photstream.

Got an iPod Video before I left MA. All those movies I encoded with Handbrake work great. Been watching the first season of The Shield; if you haven't seen it, check it out.

Well, that's all the random, discontenuous thoughts for now. More inane ramblings headed your way later. Stay tuned!

On the radio!

Eh, ok, so its not the radio. It's better than that. I sent in an audio comment to Adam Curry's DSC podcast, and he actually played it on yesterday's episode. I think its a pretty big deal, because I was probably heard through earbuds world wide. Assuming that people didn't just fast forward over me, that is.

I love podcasts and podcasting. I'm all about user generated content. Blogs, personal web sites, podcasts. Who needs mass media or giant corporations controlling what we hear and see? I sure don't.

Well, I have to say that as much I as I hope that plugging my site on the show increases traffic, I'm also slightly afraid of that also. I've been pretty slow to update, and there really isn't anything up here right now, other than the blog... Oh well.

If you're reading this, leave a comment. Mention something you like/hate/would like to see on the site.

Just a night in 1985!

Dave & 'is kids came over for dinner, and as it turns out, we spent the rest of the night glued to the TV. Not because of an xBox 360. Not watching movies. Not even PS2 or Gamecube. We've been rockin the NES! Wouldn't you know, its 6am, and Dave & I are still dukin' it out to Hogan's Alley.

Its been a pretty much solid stream of various gun-games. We started out with Hogan's Alley, then spent quite some time with Duck Hunt. Snuck in some TNMT, Excitebike, and Wrecking Crew just for good measure. We've also squeezed off a few rounds to the likes of Wild Gunman!

Old skool. That's the way we roll!

P.S.
Dave's been pretty much cleaning up on all of the gun based games. I mean, makin Sharon & I look bad. Real bad.
