Things I Get Excited About…

Fictional destruction, cataclysmic events and horror. (I own a Doomsday Dictionary if that’s of any hint)
Computers and technology
Video games
Photography
Electronica (8bit, house, etc…)

Dancing around my apartment with a dress on.

I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone. I hate my phone.

Don’t Tell Me This Shit Ain’t Sexy

Black Monolith of Awesome

So I’m in Wisconsin with my parents (didn’t think the post would start out like that, huh?) and I forgot my mom said that we’d be excited about some new additions to the kitchen. Well when we walked through the door my sister dropped her bags and ran for…the refrigerator. Yep. My Mom and dad got a brand new Samsung black refrigerator, and a new stove. We took a tour of the new fridge and man, it’s sweet. I don’t know if this is pervasive with other females, but I’m not particularly domesticated, however I love refrigerators and washers and dryers. It’s like embedded in my very being.

Anyhoo, it looks like I haven’t really stopped doing what I was doing my regular schedule at home. I got up about a half-hour ago went to facebook, twitter, my blog then I’m going to hit up my Google reader and then do some work, maybe have a meeting. Sounds like I never left home, huh?

Well except my mom is making me muffins. : )

Gotta Sell Some Tech to Get Some Tech

Okay, so now I’m obsessed with getting a Zune. I’m going to pick up iPod Touch some time in the future, but I want the Zune now. If you didn’t know I was a gadget whore before, you now know.

I currently own 4 external hard drives, two 80GB, one 120GB and a 1TB (which I just bought). I’m going to sell the first three, and I’m clearing them off at home as we speak (figuratively). If anyone is interested or knows anyone interested just let me know and we’ll negotiate a price.

They’ve all treated me well, never failed on me, but I cannot continue to stack these bitches on top of each other.

Willing to ship too. It’s all first come first serve.

There’s a New Baby in the Gadget Family

This little berry, I think it's a berry, made my day.

This little berry, I think it's a berry, made my day.

Yesterday I welcomed my new Nikon D90 into my home. Many pictures were taken and many MANY more will come. I’ve also launched a new blog, a photoblog, called This Channel Always Changes. I started it yesterday and updated it late today, so you can expect to see the third picture up Tuesday. I’ve thrown away my disdain for digital SLRs and am willing to embrace (and re-learn!) the art of photography all over again and without the cost of development!

Camera Upgrade, Canon Rebate

Nikon D80

So I’ve decided to give in to the digital overlords and succumb to buying a DSLR. I’ve got a bevy of cameras lying around my apartment, but as I’ve discussed with several friends, film is just too expensive to work with these days. So now I’m in the final throws in deciding what camera I want to get. And I’m leaning toward a Nikon D80 or a Canon 30D.

I’ll spare all the technical talk, but I did learn at the Ritz/CamerasWest in Seattle that the Nikon D80 and above is compatible with all Nikon lenses from 1950, digital or not. That’s a pretty sweet deal, because lenses that old tend to be cheaper and sometimes even better quality. The Nikon is also not as heavy as the Canons are.

However, via Gizmodo, Canon is giving pretty big rebates on DSLRs and Lenses. And these are instant rebates, no headaches with snail mail. [Coupon PDF]

Canon Rebates

I’ll update when I’ve got my new camera, hopefully within a week or two. Post Script: If you’re ever in Seattle and can’t say more about the Ritz/CamerasWest on 1908 4TH Ave in downtown Seattle. They had the best and informative people I’ve ever met in retail.
