Watch in amazement as I finish the week on a positive note, laughing in the face of all those (people and things) that have pissed me off this week.
- If you see 'owlet' and think it is some kind of exotic omelette, then shame on you! In reality it is a tiny owl. An owl so tiny that they don't even call it an owl. An owl so tiny, it has its own genus! (kings play chess on fat girls stomachs... a genus is one step up from a species). An article with words about owlets lives here. While an article with hot owl-on-hand action is here.
- Owlets are cute, but they are no Red Panda. Red pandas are related to the big black and white pandas you normally think of, even though they look like little cat sized racoon-fox-bears. (Note: do not confuse a racoon-fox-bear with a manbearpig! One is extremely cute and cuddly, the other is Al Gore.)
- What could possibly be cuter than a Red Panda and an Owlet? A mini red panda! Sorry for sending you to an msn video page, but it is all I have. It is worth it though. Note that these are very endangered animals, they have a death rate of nearly 90%. If you think zoos are bad and horrible and evil, well fuck you, I'd rather have some red pandas living in spaces smaller than their natural habitat, then to not have any red pandas in the world.
- Want to try out a Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 without spending $2500+? Well, check out LensRentals.com, where you could let that bad boy live with you for 2 weeks for the low price of $130. Other lens have different prices, like the Canon 100mm f2.8 macro that I want to try which would only put me out $50 for two weeks.
- Kaleidescape won its fight with the DVD Copy Control Association. Kaleidescape makes a set of 'computers'/'consumer electronic devices' that let you rip your entire DVD library, and then access any DVD from your TV using a fancy menu system. In a nutshell the DVD CCA is a bunch of freaking lunatics (along with the RIAA, the MPAA, and the rest of the bunch) who think that now is a good time to try to overturn fair use / personal copy / VCR rulings that were made back in the 70s.
