iAm iPod

Holy shizz!  I just found out that Apple is releasing the 4th generation iPod this week; they might be released first thing Monday morning!

According to the Newsweek article, the new iPod will be a wee bit thinner (about 1mm), have a click-wheel modeled on the iPod mini (which is very nice) and these other upgrades:
  • Multiple, editable OnTheGo Playlists
  • Audiobooks can be slowed down or sped up
  • 12 hour battery life
  • Price drop, 40GB $399, 20GB $299

I can't even begin to tell you how tempted I am to get one of these upgraded 40GB 4th gen. babies.  They look sweet and I greatly approve of the upgrades but, I think I can hold out for the next upgrade.  I think I'll shell out the bucks for a new iPod when the storage capacity goes up to 50GB or, dare I dream, 60GB.  Sarah recently acquired an iPod mini and I was really impressed with the look and feel of the little sucker.  I really prefer the feel of the click-wheel of the mini to the touch-wheel of my iPod

So, Apple, when you decide to release a 60GB iPod with the updated click-wheel shout me a holla.  Then we can do business.


"Godzilla -- He Eats Big Towns"

Where do I begin? It's been a busy couuple of days. Yesterday night, Steve and Stephanie had a pre-wedding party. Jill, Erik and I arrived fashionably late and commenced to par-tay.  The most popular person at the party all night was Erik's blazer but I'm not going to give it any more attention than it has already stolen by writing about it in this blog. But we looked really cute, didn't we?

Tracey decided to show off her mad skillz:

Yes indeed, it was a fun time.

Today Jill, Erik and I met Stephanie at Toast for breakfast and then we hung out for a bit in Royal Oak before Jill had to venture back to Rochester, NY.  Unfortunately there wasn't time to visit Hell, MI on this trip.  Hopefully we'll get to go sometime soon. 
I was a little beat from the weekend's activities so we rested a bit before we had our Date Night part Deux.  I was able to finish watching the I Love The 90's series: 1990, 1998 and 1999.

And I offer you The Things I Love About I Love The 90's:
  1. "Two snaps, a twist and a kiss!"
  2. "Who killed Laura Palmer?"
  3. Mayor Marion Barry gets arrested, goes to jail and gets re-elected
  4. "Ditto"
  5. "I've fallen and I can't get up!"
  6. Slap bracelets
  7. Color Me Badd
  8. Wendy the Snapple lady (then, not now)
  9. Commentary by the original Black and the Pink Power Rangers
  10. Background music by Tara Kemp ("Hold You Tight")
  11. The blonde backup dancer in the C+C Music Factory video "Gonna Make You Sweat"
  12. "I could blade on yo' momma's ass"
  13. Felicity's bitch roommate
  14. Susan Powter's "Linda Perry" make-over
  15. Sheneneh
  16. Jeff Gallooly
  17. Dr. Kimberly Shaw, M.D. and her head scar
  18. Beth Littleford is the new Rachael Harris
  19. All of 1995
  20. "Mr. Hall, I was surfing the crimson wave.  I had to haul ass to the Ladies."
  21. "That'll do Pig."
  22. The Freshmaker
  23. Hal Sparks doing Forest Gump & Sling Blade
  24. A-Zig-A-Zig-Ah
  25. A whiskey drink, a vodka drink, a lager drink, a cider drink ...
  26. Ace Of Base
  27. "Anyone who doesn't like Hanson is mmmjealous!" [Thanks Sarah]
  28. Tamagotchis
  29. Tinky Winky
  30. Katie Holmes = poop of angels
  31. I like girls that wear Abercrombie & Fitch
  32. Y2K paranoia
  33. "¡Yo Quiero Taco Bell!"

Overall it was a cool series.  They will never duplicate I Love The 80's series but this one wasn't bad at all.  There were some really annoying things (the Michael Bolton segments were the worst!) but over all I really enjoyed the series.

So anyways, for date night we went to see Godzilla, the 1954 original Japanese film never-before-shown in the US, at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

We get to the DIA and there is a huge blow-up Godzilla in front ... so of course we took pix: 

Scary huh?  Anyways, the movie was very good.  It was much better than I had expected.  Erik and I were very sure that most of the audience didn't get the message of the film -- they were too busy laughing at everything the whole time.  This movie, made after WWII, was surely a commentary on the dangers of nuclear weaponry.  Godzilla represented the United States of America and the way it affected Japan since WWII.  There were some cheesy parts but for a film made in the 50's I found it highly entertaining.  It's nice to know that the "Godzilla sound" (his roar) has always been the same.  I've seen a few of the movies (including the horrid US one) and think I liked this one the best.  The film is in very limited release so we were lucky to get to see it.  Tracey saw it and highly recommended we see it too.  Two thumbs up!

And finally, I am happy to report that the kitties seems to be over their bad selves. 

They don't hiss and growl at one another anymore.  They just stare at each other.  It's nice to see family members get along.

This weekend was hectic and I'm looking forward to a quiet night with Erik so now I bid you adieu!
