Andre’s trip to Disneyland

Disneyland, January 18 to 20 How we know each other Rao and I worked together 10 years ago on an enormous Year 2000 computer project and have stayed in touch ever since. I attended his wedding in New Jersey many years ago and was unable to blend in to the crowd of hundreds because: (1) […]

Will Rudy drop out?

NBC 4 is saying that Rudy has not said he is dropping out but apparently in his Florida concession speech he kept referring to his campaign in the past tense. Here’s hoping he pulls the plug.

Co-president?

I like Senator Hillary Clinton but President Clinton is selling himself as part of the package. That’s not good. When he says “These are tough times. We can bring America back. We’ve done it before.” then he’s using the good will he built to get himself into office. I don’t like that; his time as […]

Shigofumi is one weird anime

I started watching Shigofumi. The idea here is that after people die they have an opportunity to write one letter to one person. Fumika’s job is to deliver that letter which she does dispassionately. In the first episode Fumika was to deliver a letter from Ayase Asuna’s late father to her boyfriend. Fumika finds Shouta […]

That’s the Rudy NYC remembers

The New York Times has a good article on Rudy Guiliani which highlights many of his bad temper abuses. It’s a little long but some of the examples I had forgotten about. I like the photo from the article, it shows a “lighter” side of the presidential candidate. I think the Rudy 2008 campaign is […]

Looks like no Amtrak strike

I heard on 1010 WINS this morning that a tentative agreement between 9 unions and Amtrak was going to be announced today. That’s a relief as both Lily and I both take the LIRR to Penn Station get to work. It would have been a pain for us to get to work, likely we’d have […]

DNA samples taken from anyone arrested?

In NYC for the state of the city address, Mayor Bloomberg apparently is proposing that DNA samples be taken from everyone arrested. I think the idea is like the police running the ID of anyone who jumps a subway turnstile. If they’re naughty enough to jump a turnstile then they might have an outstanding warrant. […]

They still have Blades of Glory

I loves parodies. This Youtube video sums up HD-DVD v Blu-ray nicely. Update: This link still works.

Is Rudy cured?

Wow. Miracles do happen. After many attempts and interventions Rudy has been able to appear in public without having his 9/11 Tourette’s syndrome kicking in. Every article I have read seems to concentrate on the fact that he left out the English only part of his talking points and how politically poisonous Katherine Harris still […]

HG Gundam Exia assembled

Just finished assembling the HG Gundam Exia. It’s good and when the weather is warmer I’ll probably paint it. Except for the shoulders, the whole thing breaks up for easy painting. The Exia was built right after the HG Shiranui Akatsuki Gundam was completed. Here is a picture of the completed model: Behind it are […]
