Photo Album: Snow Attack 2008 War Journal

December 19, 2008

Since this morning, all of New York City has been under attack from white stuff lobbed by the fierce kilt-wearing Canadianistas and their smiling Arcticturian overlords!

I am one of the few still alive, with a crapcam to document this horror!



The houses of worship are empty! People have given up on God!



The streets are empty of life!

This is so sad:


Human beings would sit there. Now, forever a ruin!

And this is tragic:


The ghostly imprints of trudging refugees!

We are all abandoned:


And then mockery of mockeries! I came across:


One of the stormtroopers of the smiling Arcticturians! And me without a gun or knife!

Car are abandoned at curbside:


People know it is fruitless to try to escape!

Witness the horror through my eyes:


Well, the gimlet eye of the crapcam, at least!


Global warming?! These green lifeforms will not survive to burn to to a crisp!


I made it to the supermarket, crowded with despair …


… where they have been reduced to offering the burned bodies of birds for sustenance! Look this cruelty!


They expect us to maintain our dim lives with that?!

On the way back, I knew all hope was gone!


Just like in New Orleans during Katrina: the school buses aren’t being used to evacuate us!!!

Avenge New York City! If Bush was a real man, he’d use a few of those nukes we’ve been bled to pay for! Melt that damn polar ice cap and get the economy going again!!

Of course, after I got a fresh AAA battery in it and tortured the crapcam back into taking pictures, the blitz let up. Still, here are some photos of this horrible and unprovoked attack from the merciless Canadianistas and the heartless Arcticturians.




It’s clear I will be taking my life in my hands as I venture out to run to the store to stock up on war supplies.

Doesn’t much matter.

Doing this blog is sucking the life out of me as it is. Hurry up, damn you, December 31st!!

White Castle, Brooklyn, NY

Where the scene from Saturday Night Fever was shot.

I was there that night.

Long gone. One of the victims of the Yuppie Eighties.

Smart Car Pr0n For A November Weekend

November 2, 2008

All photos taken Saturday November 1, 2008 with the Philips crapcam.

First, the usual gray baby I nearly always encounter:

Then I was shocked to encounter a new yellow lovely:

And shocked again when I came upon a gorg-o-licious red one:

If you squint, you can see a traffic officer writing it a ticket!

Photo Album: New York City, Baby!

October 11, 2008

All photos taken with the Philips crapcam.

First two photos taken Tuesday, October 7, 2008:

Seated in front of the New York Stock Exchange is a certified Life Coach (the sign says so!), one of those bottom-feeders who prey on the ineptness and insecurities of others.

The New York Stock Exchange, aka Satan’s Branch Of Greed On Earth.

Remaining photos taken today, Saturday, October 11, 2008:

The corporate logos you see have nothing to do with the mural, which is below a freaking building-high ad for a videogame. Keep your gated community and sterile suburbs. This mural is exquisite. Only in New York City, mofos!

Our graffiti is better than yours. It’s Art!

Our street artists will create at home and bring it outside to tack it up!

Satan has an outlet store here too: That’s a Hello Kitty toaster!

And we know evil when we see it, dammit:

Satan’s Bitch. Too bad the crapcam cut off her horns!

This is New York City, baby.

You stay where the hell you are.

The rents are already too high for people like me — who deserve this city.

Photo Album: Latest Sylvania Netbook At J&R

October 4, 2008

I popped into J&R this morning. I saw a white MSI Wind. I also saw the latest version of Sylvania’s Netbook and grabbed some pics with the Philips crapcam.

Asus EeePC 1000, Sylvania Netbook

MSI Wind, Asus EeePC 1000, Sylvania Netbook, older Sylvania Netbook

Notice how the keyboard looks real

See that keyboard?

Looks good, huh?

Left, third row from top: near-microscopic Tab key!

This unit had a “Ubuntu Certified” sticker on it …

… yeah, like WTF?

Sylvania (or whoever created this design) cheated on that keyboard. The keys are tapered to be narrow on top, to provide the look of a real keyboard. Then when you try to type, you fall through the trapdoor into Typo City! The key depth is great, but the keytops are so damned small, it’s near impossible to do even slow typing without hitting the wrong key.

I guess there was some sort of customized version of Ubuntu running on it. I launched OpenOffice to try typing. And it was so slow!

J&R didn’t have a price for this. Their website lists it at $359.00.

Pass it up.

Red Sony Reader: REAL Pictures!

September 24, 2008

A kind soul who wishes to remain uncredited sent me three real pictures of the red Sony Reader!

Click to make big!

OK, now is it tempt-o-liciously gorgeous and lustitastically irresistible?

Micro Fondle: MSI Wind At J&R

September 20, 2008

Photos taken Saturday, September 20, 2008 with the Philips crapcam.

Yes!! After waiting months and months and months, I finally encountered a real, live MSI Wind!

Since I’m probably the last frikkin person on the entire planet to do so, my observations probably don’t count for squat. Nevertheless …

At left is the hp Mini Note. The MSI Wind is just about the same size. It’s eerie. But as you can see, the MSI Wind’s screen sits higher, making the hp Mini Note look rather sad in comparison.

Left to right: hp Mini Note, MSI Wind, Asus 1000 EeePC. The MSI Wind has a glossy biohazard-inviting top cover. J&R left the plastic protector on it, but it didn’t cover the edges and the smearing was already evident. Inside and on the bottom, the plastic is matte and doesn’t do fingerprint magnetism.

Left to right: hp Mini Note, MSI Wind, Asus 1000, Sylvania ULCPC. The MSI Wind is noticeably lighter than both the boat anchor hp Mini Note and the Asus. In addition, the Asus is nearly the same width, but front to back it’s larger than the MSI Wind.

Two blur-o-licious photos of the keyboard. The thing about the keyboard that surprised me were the smaller keys for period and comma. The trackpad is responsive but seems small. The clickbar is a bit problematic. It’s thin, small, and really embedded in the top, with no overlap on the edge.

Build quality was excellent. My main test was simply typing on that keyboard, which was The Test for me. How was it? Spacing was excellent for me. After trying it, I went over to the Asus and over to the Acer Aspire One. It confirmed for me that the MSI Wind really has the best keyboard for me. Feedback is a wee bit harder than I’d like, but better than the Asus. And the spacing just killed both the Asus and the Aspire. I could really, really type on it.

If I was going to buy today, I’d get the MSI Wind. It really is what I’ve been waiting for in a netbook.

But now I’m on another wait-and-see. Next month Apple will unveil new MacBooks.

The point of the MSI Wind for me is to strip off Windows XP and replace it with Mac OS X.

But if Apple is going to unleash some lust-o-licious new aluminum-clad MacBooks next month, it only makes sense for me to wait and see what they offer and their prices. Why should I settle for shoehorning Mac OS X on an MSI Wind if I’d be able to get the real deal with no compromise and no fear of OS X updates (which might break the MSI Wind install!)?

Photo Album: Two Hot Cars In NYC

September 20, 2008

Photos taken Saturday, September 20, 2008 with the Philips crapcam.

This morning brought me to lower Manhattan, where I stopped by the Winter Garden. Some kind of car show had been there this week and now the cars were being moved out. Two in particular caught my eye.

Look below the plate at the huge center exhaust!

I have no idea what brand names these cars are or who makes them. They’re probably expensive as all hell, especially that red two-seater, which looks like half of it is taken up by its jet engine(!) in back.

Update: Judie Lipsett of Gear Diary — who apparently knows her rich-ass cars! — tells me the second is the Bugatti Veyron.

Update: Judie Lipsett is back again with the silver one identified. Aston Martin Rapide 4-Door Coupe.

Sony Reader At Brooklyn, NY Target Store

September 18, 2008

I had an appointment today that took me back to the neighborhood of the Target Store I’d been at a few days before I knew the Sony Reader was going to be on sale there. So I stopped in with the Philips crapcam and took some pictures:

The signage. So, only young and pretty white women read, huh? This Target Store is where young and pretty white women are a minority. So: Oopsie!

The Sony Reader itself, locked-down. Crapcam doesn’t pick up the text on the screen!

Blurry pic of the lightwedge cover.

That alligator cover and travel pouch combo.

Another shot. The color is waaay off. It’s darker and screams Suit!

The Sony Reader packaging itself.

If you squint, you can see the text on the screen.

Display also had prepaid gift cards and an AC adapter. And too many headphones!

Well, overall I was rather disappointed with it. Down the aisle was a display for a smart pen. It had a small screen with video demo. I think the Sony Reader should have had that too. As it stands now, only people who know about the Sony Reader will seek it out. This is a missed opportunity to educate people about eBooks — and about the existence and use of the Sony Reader itself. I’d upgrade these displays with video. Hell, I’d replace that signage with a big-ass LCD TV that silently shows how the Sony Reader works and a big-ass Press ME! button to run an overwhelming video/audio demo of the Sony Reader. Eat that, Amazon Kindle!
