The Internet is fun!

First up, I kind of like Formula 1. It's kind of a soap opera, that drags out for a few months and features really fast cars. But I think a fan back in the 70's had more to cheer for. Check out this video of Gilles Villeneuve. It's like a Monty Python sketch. Look at him wave at the crowd as he drives around with his rear wheel trailing behind him. Listen to the crazed announcer. It's amazing madness. I love how everybody is really excited that he could have killed them all. That's what is lacking in society today. A sense of danger.

Next, I've been away for a few days, so I think I missed the original posting. But this video about the HTC phone vs. the iPhone makes me cry it's so fantastic. I was more impressed when I thought the guy that created it had animated it himself and just used some kind of text-to-speech software to create the dialogue. That he just typed some shit into a website and this video popped out makes it a bit less impressive. But I'm inspired, nevertheless.

Incidentally. What are you guys up to? Evan, you seemed to be off to a promising start. Now...what? JD has at least started his second posting. He seems to have lost his train of thought, probably due to his cat finding a ball of yarn, but at least he's started something. Tell us a cat story, JD. I know you have many.

  1. When I first read this posting I thought it said, Tell us a story, JD. I know you have many. So I was all like, yeah, I'm a good story teller. Then I saw the cat comment. Dammit. I do talk about my cat too much. Man I'm boring.
