I’m pretty much shitting myself right now zOMG!!! (<===click here if the video doesn't load!)
posts about stuff on TV

So, this might be pretty nerdy, but I’m fine with that. I am right now watching AMA Motocross from the Red Bud National in Buchanan Michigan, LIVE ON THE INNERNETS zOMGZ!!!
In detail (which is the nerdy part), I have the video playing in Windows Media Player via Windows XP on my iMac, thanks to Parallels. Then on my iMac’s 2nd monitor, I have the same video playing in Quicktime, but delayed a bit so I have an ad-hoc instant replay. I just have to move my head to the right a bit to see what I just saw again. The twist to this is that I’m actually not listening to audio that accompanies the video… I am instead listening to the live audio feed because I have a very non-gay boner for Jason Weigandt, (that was meant as a joke!) and, frankly, I feel that his announcing makes the racing a lot more exciting.
Finally, on my laptop, I am chatting with my buds (just make up a username… leave the password box empty), watching the lap times (I miss being able to color label the riders like I could with the Supercross timing thing), and looking at the track map and just getting annoyed by mototalk people, and extra frustrated that I can’t interact with them because I let my membership lapse and I don’t have $30 ear tagged for a renewal.
If watching MX on the net isn’t your cup of tea, you can watch the 2nd Motocross class moto at 6 PM on Speed!
So, that’s what I’m up to on this rainy first day of July. Come to think of it, this is pretty much how I spent 2 Sundays ago, too. And actually, I guess that if I’m going to paint a picture, I should tell the whole story (WHAT? I have no idea what I just typed!)… My MX Sunday actually started late Saturday night when I was trying to be asleep by midnight so I could wake up by 6 AM so I could watch FIM World Motocross via MediaZone.com, but I ended up falling asleep somewhere around 3! I woke up at 5:50, on the couch, so I loaded the video stream from Sweeden on my iMac (in Windows) and tried to watch it from bed. A few laps into the 1st MX2 moto, I fell asleep. I woke up many laps later, and Josh Coppins was quite a ways back. I think this was the 2nd MX1 moto, but I really can’t remember. I kept waking up, watching a lap or 2, and then falling asleep again. I still don’t know who won the MX2 overall, but I plan on downloading and watching the motos again later tonight, or maybe tomorrow.
I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL I CAN WATCH EVERY AMA MOTOCROSS/SUPERCROSS RACE LIVE ON THE INTERNET!! Even if it’s only the 1st motos like now. It gives me enough of a mental image of whats going on that I can run the 2nd motos in my head. Especially with Jason’s excellent announcing.
P.S. In making this post I pretty much missed the first lites moto. Updating the blog was a bad choice.

Next to Apple, I think Amp’d Mobile has some of the best commercials. About a year or so ago this was my favorite commercial. (mostly because I’m in love with the shake your junk girl! If you want me to be in love with you all you have to do is dance like that!)
Well, earlier this year (I think) this commercial came out and I liked it a lot too. I think I would be able to relate with it a little more if I had a kid. Interestingly, Amp’d also has my most hated commercial in this piece. Man, I hate that guy so much! I get grossed out and have to change the channel whenever he comes on.
However… This beauty makes up for it!
EASILY MY CURRENT FAVORITE COMMERCIAL!!
I crack up every time I see this one, and then I get the E-40 song stuck in my head. I think it’s extra special to me because they showed it on the huge screen at the Orlando Supercross.

I have drama (and yes, this will reveal how amazingly complicated my life is).
The Seattle Seahawks are slated the take on the 49ers tonight on my TV at 8 PM. Sounds awesome, right? Especially since I was stuck in a car heading to Seattle on Sunday when the Seahawks last played (and lost). Only, there is a problem… That Nike run thing is supposed to happen at 8 PM too.
I am torn. Do I stay home and watch the Seahawks or do I go out and see Vanilla Ice, De La Soul, Young MC, Coolio, and Digital Underground??I can always tivo the Hawks game, but watching it after the fact just isn’t the same.
Does live in real life trump live on my TV?
WHAT TO DO??

Do you know what really bums me out about this year’s weak hurricane season? Fewer opportunities to capture something like this!
I don’t even watch hurricane news, but I happened to have it on when this happened, and I decided to put it on youtube. (obviously this was months ago)

PLZ 2B telling me where the hot spot on the beach is to watch the Heat game tonight.
I will accept submissions for places off of the beach, but only if you’re offering me a ride there too.
Oh, and the first round will be on me, naturally!
Thanks for being the mostest bestest friend evAr!

Hmmm… Looks like a Kawasaki… Looks like it has a #7 on it… Skin looks a little darker than mine… MUST BE JAMES STEWART zOMGz!1!!
Check out the rest of the set! (and no, these are not my pics. And it’s not really Bubba!) Related.
Oh, also somewhat related… Here are some sweet pics of James Stewart from this past weekend’s race in Southwick MA. (again, not my pictures)
(This is my current desktop picture. I love this gear so much!!)
I am currently watching Skyscraper on one of the Showtime derivatives. Can I just say this has got to be the most horrendous movies I have seen in… Maybe ever? About the only saving grace is that I tuned in just in time to see Anna Nicole Smith’s boobs/shower/sex scene!
A few days ago I installed Windows Vista Beta 2 on my eMachine. It’s actually a lot better/nicer/whatever than I was expecting it to be. I actually like it! My display is a little too small (only 15″ – 1024×768 and $1100 in 1999!) for me to be content. It makes using the computer a little annoying, no matter what OS I’m using. The HD I’m using is only 5200 RPM, so that’s not helping things either.
Oh, hay! I’m hearing fireworks outside!! I’m gonna go check that out now.
