Re-posting webcomics like We The Robots, and repackaging and re contextualizing Stuff White People Like to be relevant to my own life.

It really is the most useless part of The Internet.

Pho tic-tac

Aug. 29th, 2008 | 02:33 am

This is seriously the best pho I have ever eaten.
It's right near 85th and Greenwood.

The broth was immaculate.
Adding Sriracha or Hoisin to the broth itself is a crime against carefully crafted flavor and a slap across the face of a cook who clearly has not had their spirit crushed by the tasteless masses.

The broth is thicker and heartier than the overly salty watered down au jus you are used to from places like Than Brothers, and it has more than three distinct flavors.

The meat tastes like meat, instead of tasting like old. The veggies are crisp and delicious.

The people on yelp (http://www.yelp.com/biz/pho-tic-tac-seattle) Like to complain about slow service, dirty fish tanks, and rude service. Those people have no business in a good pho restaurant, and would be better served by the most mediocre of pho place with clean dishes, westernized servers, high prices, free refills, and a willingness to take credit cards (read: What the Pho).

I've said it before, and I mean it:
Pho tic tac is so good, it makes other pho seem like a kick in the crotch.

When is that 3g network coming?
And what about the Android?

Swearing off piracy, realizing that it really didn't change anything.

music: Kettel - Days for Bennet | Scrobbled by Last.fm

After the initial few weeks of absolute abstinence from downloading music, I realized that I can't listen to Oingo Boingo and Sleater Kinney the rest of my life.
(well, I could, but... yeah.)
This morning I have been exploring the world of music that the artists want me to download, for free.

This is working out quite well.

for example:
http://freealbums.blogsome.com/
Which has a post featuring some pretty good ska

and there is last.fm
http://www.last.fm/music/+free/

and all the shit listed here:
http://mashable.com/2008/06/30/free-legal-music-sites/

and I've been using songbird as an interface for this whole process.
I am not sure about songbird still. I sort of get how it works, but I know that if I sat my grandparents they'd have no idea what was going on.
I suspect the same would be true for a lot of people I know (if working an iPod is hard...).

regardless of that, I prefer this setup (philosophically) a lot more than the pay to rent sites like zune.

ETA: I like this song.
