Links for January 27, 2009

I don’t really follow Twitter accounts. I find them annoying and usually uninformative. There are very few people in this world that I want to have minute by minute updates on their lives and none of those people use Twitter. With that being said, if people used Twitter like Leonard Sweet does, as Michelle points out, I’d be a lot more inclined to follow the feeds. Jumping into someone’s brain occasionally to see some of their questions or thoughts on situations is quite interesting. However, then it gets really annoying again when it becomes like a Facebook wall where you start posting messages to people. Jordon is now moving his Tweets to his sidebar now too, which is good, I think it’s where they belong.

I have been waiting for this for a really long time. Brilliant move and now there is seriously no reason ever for anyone ever to use Outlook. Gmail is now offline!

Sweet new website that gives you recommendations of what movies to watch by what movies you like.

Going to a show on Friday called the Where’s the Band tour. It’s all the frontmen from a few of my favourite bands and most importantly Thrice. (Dustin Kensrue of Thrice, Matt Pryor of the Get Up Kids, Chris Conley of Saves The Day and Anthony Raneri of Bayside). It’s sold out though, so you can’t go, hopefully I’ll get some nice pics.

We have finished filming our first ever commercial for this year’s Evolving Church conference, and I’m pretty pumped to get it online. Mind you we shot it ourselves with our cheap equipment, but I think its great. It should be up before the end of the week.

Gran Torino was a great movie, really enjoyed the character development. Seven pounds was also pretty good, a little predicatble but still good. Slumdog Millionaire and The Wrestler are the next two on my list. I’ve also just started getting into the season called It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It is absolutely hilarious, a little racey, so if you are sensitive pretend I didn’t write that.

This e-mail reminds me of a lot of people. Some of those t-shirts are really hilarious though. Some….a little over the top.

Oh Mark Driscoll. Seriously, what a douche.

This weekend I was able to get OSX (or as Joe calls it, OS TEN) onto my PC using Kallyway. This is a giant step in my ultimate goal in life to prove to everyone how horrible of an investment purchasing a Mac is. If OSX will run perfectly on any laptop, it will be official that Mac users buy Macs and spend twice the money for the same speed strictly because of style and brand loyalty. I knew this was true long ago, but finally it is becoming more realistic. Plus, I’ll be able to run Final Cut on my PC now too, because none of my friends refuse to believe me that Premiere is just as good as a program, if not better in my opinion.

I’m now officially using Google Reader. Don’t know why I wasn’t before, I should have known that having it all online was a good move. Plus, now I can read it on my phone too with my Google Reader app.

We have an amazing new soup/wrap place across the street from theStory called Spoon Lickens. There is going to be 150 different soups to choose from on the take-out menu and 9 different ones each day to order. 3 of the 4 soups I’ve had were out of this world. It’s a bit pricey, but I’m pretty pumped we have another great restaurant downtown Sarnia.

I now realize that almost all my links are somehow tech related. Guess that’s just how it swings this week.

  1. If you’re using Firefox – check out the “Better GReader” extension for Google reader, adds some sweet things that are not present and make Google Reader that much better.

    Love the idea of OSX on the PC…I will have to check that out.
