I Heart NY

In New York Everything Is A Convenience

Spewed out 10 years, 3 months ago at 6:43 pm

It’s been awhile since my last post, I suppose the New York “lifestyle” has been keeping me busy but that’d be a lie. It’s more likely that I’ve just been way too tired and occupied with being exhausted.

This so called “busy-ness” and exhuastion has led me to offload more and more things I would typically do myself.  Of course this all comes at a premium, but I always justify it with the time I end up saving.  Time, after all is money right?

What makes it even easier is just how convenient everything is in New York City.  There’s literally a service for everything you can imagine. Big or small someone will cater to your need and has probably made a business of doing so.

One of my splurges is definitely delivery.  Those magic words “delivery please” that cause someone else to take on the burdens of some of the most simplistic things and provide for you.  The ability to pick up the phone and within minutes have your desires fulfilled and delivered to your door.  In fact there’s often the ability to not even need to pick up the phone, as there are online ordering options for everything.

In New York, I’ve found that I can practically get anything delivered. Things I would have never thought of ever getting someone else to do and deliver.

Getting The Blackberry 9700 Working With T-Mobile

Spewed out 10 years, 4 months ago at 9:27 pm

Having just got the new Blackberry Bold 9700 on T-Mobile, I thought the transition would be relatively smooth. Of course it always takes much longer than I ever anticipate.

I was upgrading from the Blackberry Curve 8320 and had decided to switch devices by using the *surprise* *surprise* Switch Device Wizard that is part of the Blackberry Desktop Manager.  Unfortunately I’m on a Mac and the relatively newly released OSX version of the desktop manager program doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the Windows version.

So I ended up having to drop into Windows and run the desktop manager from there.  Luckily you don’t have to go through a full sync process, you can pretty much use the Device Switch Wizard from any Windows Desktop Manager installation.  In fact I think this is pretty much what they’ll do for you if you got your phone in a T-Mobile store.

Loyal Dog

This Is Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats

People wonder why I think dogs are better than cats? This is the reason right here. They don’t just think about themselves all the time.

Some of the images after the jump might be a bit graphic for some, but it just goes to show how loyal dogs are.

Check out these stories of dogs that walked miles to return to their owners. There’s the two famous ones: Hachiko and Grefriars Bobby.

More after the jump.

Awesome Choreographers: Napoleon & Tabitha

Spewed out 10 years, 5 months ago at 8:17 pm

Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo also known as NappyTabs come up with some pretty awesome choreography.  I’ve been following some of their stuff here and there through the years, but never realized how awesome it was mainly due to the fact that most of the videos of their earlier stuff are just shot bad.

You know amateur camcorder stuff from a guy fully zoomed in at the very back of a performance venue, shaky and full of ambient chit chat and noise.

They got a huge boost in popularity with their appearance on So You Think You Can Dance and I was reminded of how awesome their stuff is.
