nokia aeon concept phone.



i've been telling a few people about a phone LIKE this for a bit now. i saw specs for something similar a couple of years ago when i was working at MIT. this damn thing looks SICK. i don't remember if nokia had folk at MIT working on it so i can't say if this was the same exact phone but i know it was something in the same vein.



a ton of other lil fun perks are gonna come with the phone, including but not limited to:
GPS
RFID
garage-door opener
credit card
an electronic wallet with built-in ID
from what i remember there talks of using it as a long range remote for your air conditioner.



who knows if it'll ever come out and if it'll even be a great phone. but i'm curious as hell about it.

awesome.



thanks to E.

2 road trip/bored as hell games.



so i like playing "silly lil road trip/bored as hell it is too hot to move and get monopoly out" games. here are a couple ..

game one:
today i was introduced to a new one by my brother and cousin. they ain't have a name for it so we'll just call it the movie game.

the game goes a lil something like this ..
name 2 actors that have been in a movie together ..
*jack nicholson & danny devito in one flew over the cuckoo's nest*
take the last actor of the two ..
pair that actor with an actor he's been in a movie with ..
*danny devito & arnold swarchenegger in twins*
keep the chain going ..
*arnold swarchenegger & carl weathers in predator*
keep the chain going ..
*carl weathers & adam sandler in happy gilmore*
keep the chain going ..
*adam sandler & jack nicholson in anger management*
.. and so on and so forth.

you score points by stumping your opponent and stealing a turn.
say my opponent can't go past arnold and carl in predator ..
they give up ..
i succesfully name a matching actor his partner and movie ..
i get the point.

Bella and i played this one for quite some time tonight.


game two:
the other game was one i played with mr hamlyn and
mr morrison on our roadtrip from los angeles to the bay. it's called the acronym game.

basically you start it with a word ..
for example ..
*spanish*
you make an acronym out of the word ..
*spanish - some people are naked inside stranger's homes*
so you take the last word of that acronym and turn that into an acronym ..
*homes - hung over mary ejaculates softly*
and keep it going ..
*softly - sold on fucking, tabitha licked yams*
and keep it going ..
*yams - yesterday adam murdered sea lions*

if you have a g rated mind then this game sucks ..
but if you have no quarrels with making fun of race, religion, crimes, sex and midgets then this game kicks ass.

just don't play it in your living room ..
works better while on tour or road trippin'.


ok ..
that's it ..
i don't know why i felt inclined to share all that.
fuck off.

don's an idiot.

it's hot today ..



i'm in one of my asshole moods (when ain't it??). seems like the only people that are safe on days like this are people who are assholes just like me and Bella. she doesn't get caught in my verbal drive by.
but yeah ..
today i'm in full swing.



i've hated on the assholes out in this 90º+ weather in corduroy, tank tops as a dress, thick wool suits and thick dark denim.
i've hated on the asshole that eats hard boiled eggs, stinkin' up the office, while chewing with his mouth open.
i've hated on the project i'm working on.
i've hated on the iphone.
and i think i'm about 2 seconds away from punching someone.

all that, it's only 5pm and i ain't going home NO time soon.

i'm still smiling tho.




ps - the photos add nothing to this blog entry .. i was just feeling myself.
