First off, I’m gonna apologize for my Larry King-esque lack of commitment to my blog recently. I’ve been about as prolific as Jesse Jackson is in praising white folks.
I guess I’ve been a bit out of the loop. I’ve been meaning for a minute to jot down some irreverent ruminations, but just haven’t gotten around to it. It seems like the endless list of things to do has been just that over the past few weeks. And…I still got a Mt. Fiji worth of things to purchase for this haphazard shack I call a joint. I know that I said that I didn’t want to rush into buying anything just to populate the crib…but this is getting ridiculous. Inspiration has evaded me. Hopefully, in the next few weeks or so, I can add a few pieces here and there. That Grilled Cheese and Wine party seems like an unattainable island hidden miles away.
My company is having its annual holiday party this coming Saturday, so I’m intrigued to see how that will be. This will be my 1st Xmas with this company, and the 1st Xmas I’ve ever experienced with a larger company, so it should be interesting to see the chasm of differences between my former employer and current. There will be free food and they’ll be handing out gifts to some folks too – so that in itself is enough reason to go. I’ll be taking my Asian Persuasion Sensation Fascination former co-worker. It should be good times. I hope I win the 42″ Plasma TV they’re giving away. You may or may not see that on Craigslist the following day (ya never know!).
So, a friend of mine who shall remain proper name-less (The Hamster) made privy to me a new hack for the iPhone. There is a hack called hackulous (click on link to view video showing how to install Hackulous on your JAILBROKEN iPhone) that allows you to download any paid application (from the App store) for FREE. So, while thousands of dumbfucks…err…I mean…misguided folks are throwing away their paychecks at mindlessly irrelevant apps, we can download them for FREE! And so can you…if you jailbreak your iPhone.
If you can somehow pilfer a legitimate justification as to how this is NOT genius, then “call me when you’re on my block…I’ll be in my tuxedo…waiting on my bride!” They actually sell iPhone apps that are priced over $30! And…oddly enough…most of those are religious-oriented apps (Quran, Bible…etc.). Gives whole new meaning to the phrase “Get Religion”, no? Get religion? For a $30 pricetag? I pass. But for free? “This changes everything!”
I’m gonna go watch “Slumdog Millionaire” tomorrow. I’ve heard quite a bit of hype regarding this movie. The basic premise is that a kid from the slums in India makes it to the final question on an Indian version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”. Before he can answer the final question, the police take him into questioning accusing him of cheating. They’re wondering how a kid from the slums could have made it further than anyone in the history of the show. It’s an independent movie that’s built quite a head of publicized steam for it’s theatrical locomotive. It wasn’t even playing in Atlanta until last week. Apparently, we DID get the memo…albeit a bit late.
I’ll let you cool cats know how the movie is (I’m thinking that it won’t live up to the hype). I guess that’s just the pessimist in me.
I was considering going to The Fat Apple for Christmas, but that doesn’t seem as likely now. Tickets are a bit pricier than I’d prefer and I may just stay here and relax my time off (a PAID week off!!! – hip hip…Hoo-freakin’-RAY!!!). On a comparative side note, my cousin in Brooklyn (“I was born in Brooklyn!!!”) Sagar Desai Never Lies has decided to move back to Atlanta after residing in the hipster borough for only a few months. Good to have him back. Maybe he missed Waffle House too much? Shit…the things we do for a plate of Cheese ‘N Eggs. Can you honestly say that you blame him?
Pulp Fiction is on the telly. Good movie. Excellent dialogue. The part where John Travolta jams a needle in Uma Thurman’s heart to resuscitate her from her apparent overdose. Classic part in a classic movie.
I’m gonna try to dot my i’s, cross my t’s, and stay on my p’s and q’s a bit more consistently in regards to this blog.
