So the new iPod does indeed have video capabilities. That's cool. I take comfort in the fact that since I primarily use my iPod in my truck I have little to no need for video. Although having Battlestar Galactica available for play on any TV at any time might be worthwhile. Maybe I'll get one just for that. Yes I bought all of the No Doubt videos on iTMS. Yes I have some of them. Yes, I'm slightly disappointed in the quality. Though, redemption isn't far off, I'm not sure if it was worth it. I understand the videos are optimized for the iPod and that 320x240 is still better than SD resolution, but come on. This is supposed to be the year of HD! I'm thirsty.

Queue Ethan Hawke complaining about the lack of piss in his piss. That's better.

My brother has a blog. I find this interesting because a) he's only recently discovered what a blog is and b) he's starting to use his brain and think critically. Good thing too, because I hear he's trying to be a lawyer. Maybe he'll apply these new thinking skills to something else that needs to be reevaluated. We'll see how that goes. He's also started using his Google Talk account. I feel like I should talk to him, but then I'm like "m'eh…" I wonder if he'll figure out that I'm spying on him. That's right little brother, you can't hide anything from me.

On a completely unrelated (yuk, yuk) note I'm going to have to tell yet another of my relatives not to e-mail me crap. Why is it that every moron who gets my e-mail address thinks that it's free license to forward me the most mindless drivel imaginable? The only other person who sent me this much crap is now dead (not that that's a threat, just a coincidence). Unfortunately I have to wait a few days to let things die down between me and him. Yesterday he called me up and expected me to apologize for something that someone else did. I'm not married. I have no children. I don't even have employees that report to me. I don't know how in the hell someone would even come up with the notion that I should be apologizing for someone else's actions. I'm sorry, life just doesn't work that way. I don't care who you are, if you want me to apologize for someone else's actions you can just screw off. Retrospectively, our conversation went pretty much like that yesterday. That's why I have to wait a few days before I lay the e-mail smack down on him.

On yet another note, my life changed yesterday. Very drastically. I don't even know what the ramifications of this will be, but it's big. But it does also make things a bit more complicated, but what life changing event doesn't? It could be a year or more before fully realizing the importance of these events. And being quite honest, I think that's all I want to say on the subject. At least for a long time. I'll see how things go, but when I feel it's time for you to know, I'll tell you. So don't bother asking.

I had my braces tightened today. I graduated from power thread on the top to a power chain. That's good because it means things are progressing. Hopefully it also means that my two front teeth will stop cutting into my gums. In the process of putting the chain on she broke two brackets today, the same two that the thread was anchored on. I felt bad at first when the first one came off, but when I realized that it was probably due to the thread I got over it. Anyway, these things hurt, which only makes me thirsty. Although at this stage, it's not hurting nearly so bad right now ;-).

Oh, and one more thing… I've been thinking of doing something new.
