Cotner and Santa Monica January 21st, 2009 @ 9:44 am PST
In keeping with Obama’s new “Era of Responsibility”, I’m going to start a new recurring feature here at davidgagne.net. I was thinking of naming it “Assholes Who Refuse to Pay Attention to Traffic Signs”, but I think instead I’ll just go with the name of the intersection. Since I am forced to take the same […]
Eight Memorable Moments January 20th, 2009 @ 9:10 am PST
Everyone on the radio this morning was talking about what an historic day today is. I started thinking about today in comparison to the other “big days” of my life. I’m not talking about David Gagne here; I’m talking about the moments that I somehow share with everyone else. (I was born in 1973.) If […]
How to Subscribe to RSS Feeds in Mac OS X January 18th, 2009 @ 5:42 pm PST
At one point I was doing my best to try to read over 100 different blogs each day. It was, in addition to unbelievably time-consuming, very frustrating when I’d see that some large percentage hadn’t been updated since the last time I’d checked. Enter RSS. RSS stands for “real simple syndication”. What does that mean? […]
Stewart Mandel on Tim Tebow January 16th, 2009 @ 10:13 pm PST
In this week’s SI.com College Football Mailbag, Stewart Mandel addresses fans who complain of ‘Tebow Fatigue’. I did not see the Fox telecast of the game, but … unless those guys inferred Tebow literally does leap over tall buildings in a single bound, I’m guessing everything they said is absolutely true. I’ll admit it: I’m […]
Things to Say During Sex January 16th, 2009 @ 9:57 am PST
Incredimazing.com has a wonderful flowchart of Things to Say During Sex. The “bad” side of the chart is predictably much funnier than the “good” side. My favorites are: Heil Hitler! I just pooped. A lot. On your dog. We’re going to hell for this.
iTunes Plus January 11th, 2009 @ 11:03 pm PST
I like the idea of iTunes Plus. DRM is lame and so ’90s. So the fact that Apple is now allowing me to get DRM-free tracks is great. But why in the world do they insist I upgrade my entire library in one fell swoop? I’m not going to shell out $200 for music I’ve […]
Movies in 2008 January 11th, 2009 @ 2:55 am PST
You say you want an alphabetized list of all the movies I saw in 2008? I can do that.
Travels in 2008 January 10th, 2009 @ 10:05 am PST
I did a fair amount of traveling in ’08: January A yacht cruise in the Bahamas Snowboarding in Big Bear, CA February Super Bowl XLII in Arizona March Golfing in Portland, OR Golfing in Las Vegas, NV May Golfing in Portland, OR June Business in New York City, NY and golfing in Old Greenwich, CT […]
Catch-Up January 8th, 2009 @ 11:00 pm PST
I only managed 6.7 miles, today, and since I skipped my 5-miler on Wednesday, that means I’m a little bit under par for the year so far. But the Gators won their second BCS Championship tonight (in three years) so I’m cutting myself some slack. Go Gators!
iTunes Arrow Hack January 7th, 2009 @ 12:51 pm PST
I just found a super cool iTunes trick at the Unofficial Apple Weblog: If you hold the option key while you click on the little arrows next to artists and albums, it will take you to your library’s collection for that item instead of to the iTunes store.
