Pretty funny! I never had a celestial sandwich though - maybe I should have gone to that library LOL :-)

Ελληνική Μουσική, που είσαι;

Όταν ήμουν στο λύκειο είχα λίγα πάρε-δώσε με την Ελληνική σκηνή. Δεν ήταν πως δεν ήθελα, ήθελα και παραήθελα, άλλα ως «μετανάστης» στην Αμερική δεν είχα και πολλές επικοινωνίες με την Ελλάδα - μόνο αλληλογραφία με πέντε φίλους.

Μια προσευχή για τα νεκρά podcast

Τις προάλλες άνοιξα το iTunes στον υπολογιστή στο σπίτι μου - πράγμα που δεν κάνω συχνά επειδή κατεβάζω podcast από το iPod Touch μου, και είδα πως είχα podcast  τα οποία είχα ξεχάσει - τα κατέβασα και τα συγχρόνισα με το iPod μου.  Είδα

Audible iOS app is good!

A week or so ago I heard on one of the TWiT Podcasts that audible had an audible application for the iPhone out.  Now over the years I've bought many Free audible books. They go on sale, or there is a special promotion going on and the books are free. These are automatically downloaded and added to my iTunes library. I don't have them automatically synced however because I don't plan on listening

Assassin's Creed II Weekend

This past weekend was a bit of an overdose on Assassin's Creed II - even though I did not spend the whole weekend playing it!  The game just sucked me in! I have to say that it is definitely an improvement over the first Assassin's Creed - which I loved - and I just realized that even though I've put in 20 hours playing this game (over the past couple of weeks), I still have a long way to go!

You're in the Matrix Now Mr. Phelps!

OK, I've mixed my movie metaphors a bit - Mission Impossible, the Matrix, James Bond, but it's all in good fun.  Last night I was out at the movie theater to view Inception.  The movie was a couple of hours long and I was getting a bit twitchy by the end, but it actually went by quite fast!I really liked the movie, It was like the Matrix had a mash up with Mission Impossible, Life on Mars

Wither the PDA?

I was reading this post yesterday on ProfHacker, and the author was asking where are the PDAs in today's smartphone world?  PDAs...you know!  Those pieces of technology from the mid-to-late 90s that were not connected to the internet and held information like your addressbook, calendar, notepad (and of course the games!). The author is contemplating getting an iPod Touch and a cheap, voice-only,

Floppy drive w/ legs!

Well, this is retro!A floppy drive that grows some legs to avoid spilling liquids (that invade from the bottom - top invading liquids are still a problem) ;-)I haven't used a floppy disk or a floppy drive in close to 10 years now so I took this to be more of an art installation rather than something of actual use :-)Floppy Legs Portable Hard Drive from James Chambers on Vimeo.

Πάμε στο μουσείο!

Αυτό το περασμένο σαββατοκύριακο είπαμε να πάμε στο τοπικό μας μουσείο να δούμε επιτέλους την έκθεση τέχνης των Μάγια. Στο τσακ το προλάβαμε γιατί αυτό το σαββατοκύριακο ήταν το τελευταίο σαββατοκύριακο το οποίο ήταν στημένη

Movie (procrastination) weekend

I love summer! I can actually kick back on the weekend, without any homework and just enjoy the weather (or a movie). This past weekend was a movie weekend (to the detriment of house chores - oh well!) In any case, here is a brief overview:GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra: this wasn't a bad movie - I was expecting it to be far worse than it actually was. Yeah sure there may have been a couple of plot holes
