Let's face it, if only our offices could have a battle like this every day, we'd actually enjoy going to work.
In addition I'm exceedingly jealous that they have gotten their hands on the upcoming N-Strike Vulcan. Powered by six D batteries, and a standard 25 round belt (sure to be modded endlessly), it's already in high demand event though it hasn't been released yet.

Some Vue cinema over in the UK is preparing for the upcoming movie, Hancock. Luckily the construction crew took a break long enough to please our most immature side.
Not sure if they're holding the premier or just really excited. Either way some really lucky usher is going to have a huge cock to take home after the buzz has died down.
If you're as impatient as me you often brush things by in the store quickly, not often gathering all the details.
One such item for me was the Char Aznable theme's action base for 1/1444 & 1/100 scale kits. The bag art contains pictures of the stand covered with Zeonic & Char markings. For a while I thought, "that's nice, shame I don't have any of Char's Gunpla or it would be a good fit" moving on to the clear action bases instead. What use would a Char detailed stand for my RX-87-2?
Well, turns out the detail makings aren't actually the base at purchase, but they come as a sticker sheet with each base. Granted I notice now there's a small thing on the front pointing that out but the pictures give no indication. (There's no way in hell the marking in the photo are stickers)
I'm sorry but the default Mac theme for Firefox 3?

It's absolute rubbish. The old default theme for FF2 was a lot better.
According to FF's website...
"""Platform-Native Look & Feel
The new Firefox looks and feels like home. Think of it as a Firefox who’s really good at making friends. Whether you use Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac or Linux, the browser seamlessly integrates into your computer’s environment. A native look makes for a flawless interface that never gives you pause."""""
That's just awful. I don't want Firefox to look like the rest of Finder's gray gradients. Maybe if it were just one, okay. But I'm looking at at least four different ones right now. WTF....a;foiasd;fohas;kdhfklasdhfklashf
I need another beer.
With the much anticipated "release" of Spore's Creature Creator fans world wide have begun to craft their own computer generated beings with ease. For better or worse some of these initial creations have taken an odd turn toward the "obscene."
Note that the small PNG's apparently contain the data to load the creature into Spore on your end. I haven't given it a shot yet, but if it works, awesome.

If you watched tonight's episode you may have been shocked about the condition of Earth. Unfortunately due to time limitations one important scene had to be cut...
Less than half an hour ago I sat down to catch some classic Simpsons, particularly Radio Bart, the one where Bart ticked Springfield about a boy being stuck in a well, later to fall in himself.
During an early commercial break I noticed something familiar, Apple's Cover Flow. However to my surprise it wasn't yet another cheesy Mac ad, but a commercial for the local FOX 5 News...
