Some of it is blurry, but the show was awesome.

They played all of “It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back”

Prof. Griff and the SW1s were even there.

The injured ‘pet’ bumblebee

Last week there was what appeared to be an injured bumblebee.
img_5613

I say ‘appeared’ because I am not a bee doctor and have no idea how to actually tell that a bee is injured, except that it seemed sluggish and couldn’t really fly.

Day 1

He was on the floor of our porch and tiny ants were attacking him. I picked him up and moved him to a plant. Another clue that he was out if it was how easily I moved him.

Day 2

I just took some photos assuming he would get out and fly away soon.

Day 3

I decided to do my best to help the bee get better. My logic being that perhaps he was just out of it from lack of food.

I filled a bottle cap with honey and another with water. He went after the honey like bee to.. ehhh…. ummm.

Day 4

He was flying around like crazy on the porch, but couldn’t seem to get outside.

I caught him in a can and let him go outside.

He flew away.

So is ‘bumblebee rehab’ now a hobby of mine?

Pics grouped by topic.

Video to come.

the xbox cometh

So I am only a few years late to the game, but I finally got an Xbox 360 today.

Ordered it from Amazon with GTA IV, but the game itself is taking longer to ship.

I set it up, did updates, created ID, then realized I needed to setup an ID in LIVE.

Setup LIVE ID, paid for 12 months of Gold, and then needed an update to display video.

I understand the need for updates, but the whole setup process took too long and too many accounts.

There should be an obvious option for me to do all the data entry via a web browser on a PC on my LAN.

So now that I played audio and video from two PCs (WMP11), played back audio and video from my Zune attached via USB, and set everything up, it is time for a real game.

Went to the mall about bought a new copy of “Assasin’s Creed” for $30 and a 2nd wireless controller.

Played a little bit last night and dig AC.  Need to play more, but I won’t have much time today as I am going to a meatspace event… a wedding 😉

GTA IV made me do it.

GTA-IV_screens2

So I have a birthday coming up and I don’t have a next-gen console.
I own a Dreamcast, PS2, and PSP and my household also has an NES, SNES, and N64.
My couple-year-old HDTV is aching for some more HD goodness and I must do what my electronic devices ‘want’.

The TV talking to me while I sleep, and the constant barrage of GTA IV ads and discussion made me anxious about someone ruining a plot point.  So, much like I went to see Iron-Man this weekend, I was forced by my fears of ‘spoilers’ to buy a 360.

Today I saw that Amazon had a deal where you get $30 off when you buy a console and the game at the same time. That and a trial for Amazon Prime got the price way down even with 1 day shipping.

All these factors and what fields like the world were telling me to buy it, so I finally did.

So I sit here… waiting… how many hours will it take? Come on shipping company… be fast!

HRC (barely) wins Indiana DEM primary

obama HRC Indiana Primary results

Obama (BARELY) loses Indiana…

51% to 49%

637,389 HRC, 615,370 Obama, difference only 22,019 votes.

And they both get about the same number of delegates.

Indiana DEM Primary 2008

dem_prim_2008
My original plan was to vote early, but that didn’t happen.

I simply rode my bike over to get a newspaper to see if I could learn something about the non-pres primary folks. So the Herald-Times for today and yesterday were just useless. I don’t think they really understand what you should do with a local paper.

Anyway I have voted… now it is time to wait and see what the rest of the state does.

See this post for result updates.

Barack Obama Rally Bloomington, IN

IMG_5021
So I shot video of most of the speech.

UPDATED: Link to my video of the rally.

Have photos on Flickr too.

Rob Riggle (from the Daily Show) was there as well.

I paid attention to him and the bouncing gigantic beach balls until Senator Obama finally arrived.

The line(s) to get in was pretty crazy.

Assembly Hall wasn’t full, but was pretty close.
