Fastest Vista Machine is a Mac

October 29, 2007

Even though Apple is a megalomaniacal corporation with an overblown sense of self-importance and run by a guy who hasn’t changed clothes since 1998, ya’ gotta hand it to them on this one.

Key quote: “The MacBook’s score is far more impressive simply because Apple couldn’t care less whether you run Windows.”

ORU LAWSUIT: COMMENTARY

October 26, 2007

Not mine. Or Ryan’s. The kids over at SaveORU.com have listed a set of outlines for the ORU Board of Regents.

George Pearsons’ reponse is that he wants to obliterate the debt!  And he’s hired a Washington, D.C., law firm of Miller & Chevalier to ensure that there are no current improprieties (financial or otherwise) at ORU preventing the obliteration of that debt.

Key quote:

Pearsons said last week that ORU President Richard Roberts’ leave of absence during the investigation would help assure the public of the independence of the review. 


MORE NEW TRAILERS

MUSIC WITHIN – This looks important. Not in a filmic sense but in a societal sense.

WRISTCUTTERS – I keep seeing billboard for this movie all over town. It’s not as SAW-5 as the posters make it look!

SLIPSTREAM – But oooh golly! This looks phenomenal!

P.S. This also looks fun!

P.P.S. What is up with the Irish brunettes?!  UPDATE: I have a friend who’s seen this movie at a festival.  The word on the street is that it’s a “fantastic family movie.” 🙂

P.P.P.S. Finally, my friend Darren sent me this link to a youtube video about Yiddish Theatre: A Love Story. It looks quite batampte.


ORU LAWSUIT: HOW UNUSUAL IS THIS?

October 24, 2007

The University is in debt.

“When Oral said ALL these allegations were false, about 20 people clapped… very awkward.”


SOCAL FIRES: Hollywood Burning – An Update

October 24, 2007

Everyone keeps wondering how we’re doing down here in flaming socal, worried about how close we are to the fires. Just to let everyone know, we are feeling the effects of them, but we are quite far from danger. There is quite a bit of smoke hazing over the entire region, and we’ll likely be seeing a lot of ash on our cars this week. Air conditions in L.A. are poor as well. However, we’re staying inside and using the air conditioner to filter the air, and everything is fine here. The closest fire – Malibu – is still a good 20 or 30 miles away and there’s a lot of concrete between there and us. So, while everything else is Southern California seems to be burning down, Hollywood is relatively safe. We definitely encourage prayers for the over 1 million residents that have been evacuated, particularly in San Diego county. It’s a pretty big disaster there.
