iTMS now has "Popularity" Catagory

Friday, September 15, 2006
A feature of the iTMS that I have been asking for for a long time has now shown up: Popularity. When viewing a CD, for example, you can see what songs have been downloaded more than others.

To activate this "feature," in the iTMS, right click the title bar, and select "Popularity." The rating shows up as lines.


Nash cuts hair and lops mop-top

Saturday, July 22, 2006


VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Steve Nash has replaced his mop-top with a buzz cut. The two-time NBA most valuable player showed up at a basketball camp Wednesday with his trademark unruly hairdo gone.

‘‘I just cut it,’’ the Suns star said with a shrug. ‘‘I don’t really have a rhyme or reason. I felt like taking it off.’’ Nash is almost as famous for his long, wild hair as he is for his pinpoint passes and sharp shooting.

Fans of an NBA video game even complained the Canadian point guard’s hair did not ‘‘flow’’ properly, forcing the manufacturer to make changes.

Nash was in Vancouver to host a charity basketball game.

Jesus beer billboard causing quite a stir

(7/11/06 - KTRK/HOUSTON) - Sophisticated graffiti artists have left their mark near downtown Houston.

Someone covered up a billboard on La Branch at Winbern with a poster featuring a picture of Jesus Christ holding a Budweiser can. The company that leases the billboard believes vandals made the poster at home and then pasted it on top of the ad that's supposed to be there.

It shows Jesus holding a Budweiser in between the phrases "Jesus, King of Jews" and "Jesus, King of Beers."
"I thought that was just crazy," said commuter Jose Cazares. "It looks professional too."

Neighbors say the billboard has been up there for a week or more.

I know that this is just wrong, but I am still laughing at it!

BERLIN (Reuters) - Police in Berlin said on Wednesday they had arrested two men on suspicion of placing cement-filled soccer balls around the city and inviting people to kick them. At least two people injured themselves by kicking the balls, which were chained to lampposts and trees alongside the spray-painted message: "Can you kick it?"

Police said they had identified a 26-year-old and a 29-year-old and had found a workshop in their apartment where they made the balls. The two are accused of causing serious physical injury, dangerous obstruction of traffic and causing injury through negligence, police said.

My review of HoudahSpot as seen on

I tried HoudahSpot, and it was pretty cool. The interface was hard to understand at first, but once you do understand it, it works like a breeze. HoudahSpot provides one of the few things that Spotlight left out, which is logical statements (AND, NOT, OR). Ummm... for the two of you out there that read this and have a Mac, I would suggest that you download this and give it a try. Now you can search easily in Tiger, Mac OS X, with HoudahSpot!

NOTE:If you're seeing this on June 16, 2006 head over to, you might be able to get a Free copy of HoudahSpot!

A new study suggests that people preparing for surgery ask their doctor: "Have you played your video games today?"

Surgeons who warmed up by playing video games like "Super Monkey Ball" for 20 minutes immediately prior to performing surgical drills were faster and made fewer errors than those who did not, said Dr. James "Butch" Rosser, lead investigator on the study slated for release on Wednesday.
