(1) TomTom XL340-S 4.3" Touchscreen Portable GPS w/ Text to Speech, IQ Routes & Lane Guidance
Description: (click show to see it)
Remember how it used to be? We were crazy and fancy-free. We were lost in love. And also literally lost. All the time. You had the worst sense of direction! We'd go out for groceries, get somehow turned around on the interstate and before we knew it, we were in some shabby little border town shooting dice to try to win our car back. Those were the days! We'd be on our way home from your mother's place, lose our way, and stumble upon a traveling carnival, or a secluded lake, or a drug deal gone bad. Now that was excitement.
Sure, there was a downside. We were late for my sister's wedding. We didn't get your uncle to the jailhouse in time to stop that one execution. But at least every day, every drive, was an adventure!
Since you got this TomTom GPS, all that's changed. We never get lost anymore. We never run late. We never have to hitchhike to the nearest gas station. We're always executing Plan A. I miss Plans B and C and D!
It used to be that when we planned an 8:30 dinner at Chez Bud's, I'd wonder whether I should wear a swimsuit under my clothes. You know, just in case. Now that mystery is gone. Now I know as soon as you make the reservation that we'll be ordering a plate of Bud's famous snail poppers by 8:40. Our lives have become just that predictable. We're in a rut.
Remember the time when we were running so late to the airport for our non-refundable week-long Caribbean getaway? And I saw our exit too late, and we were way over in the wrong lane, and you cut hard across four busy lanes of traffic, and we skidded off the highway and through the chain-link fence and crashed into the back of the sandwich shop and missed our whole trip? That place had the best turkey wraps. I miss happening on those kinds of surprises. But thanks to your TomTom's "Advanced Lane Guidance," we never miss an exit or intersection now. We're always in the right lane. The only places we ever end up are the places we set out for in the first place. It's stifling, and I can't live like this anymore.
I miss the spontaneity we used to have. I miss not knowing where a drive might take us. I miss our long, romantic walks through the desert looking for cell service after losing the car in a ravine.
I guess what I'm saying, Clem, is that something has to give. Lose your TomTom touchscreen portable GPS --or lose me... 4evA.

Hey, loose energy. Think you've ridden it all? Think you're tough? Well, come on down to The Primary Earth Dimension this weekend for a THRILL. PACKED. EXPERIENCE. Ride... THE OUROBOROS.
The Ouroboros is over ten billion years of curved spacetime designed to SIT YOU ON YOUR ASS. From the second you arrive through a Big Bang, you'll move at the speed of light, feeling the excitement of a universe full of black holes, white dwarfs, green giants, even a nebula or two. And then, when it seems like you can't take any more, you'll coalesce in a pressured-filled soup alongside some of your best friends, and everything will really COME. TO. LIFE.
That's right, you'll be MATTER. Maybe you'll be a tree. Maybe you'll be water. Maybe you'll be a REAL. LIVE. BOY. Nobody knows what happens. All that we can promise you is that, after you're released back into your original state around the time of cosmic destruction, you'll be ready to DO. IT. ALL. AGAIN.
Don't sit around worrying that you can't be created or destroyed. Ride THE OUROBOROS and discover a brand new state of being. You'll wish it could all go on... FOREVER.
(all participants must be of legal age relative to the current time/space dimension height limits will be imposed no food or drink will be allowed on the ride energy must obey the ride operator at all times not every rider will become matter some experiences may vary no refunds or credit will be offered for unsatisfactory rides offer void to pandimensional chtonic parasites)
SEE. YOU. THERE.
Wear this shirt: when you're feeling cold hearted. Have someone look into your eyes. Oh, oh. You'll be telling lies.
Don't wear this shirt: only once. It should be something you wear again and again.
This shirt tells the world: "Here we go again..."

(2) 2005 Jocelyn Lonen Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Description: (click show to see it)
To know that each sip comes from a love and a passion that was handed down to the next generation. To know that each bottle is a tribute to the progenitor's dream, and that if the kids screw it up, they might just have to deal with the founder's angry vengeful spirit some dark and stormy night.
Today's two pack of Jocelyn Lonen Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful example of the way a labor of love can become a form of respect. This wine has been overseen by Brandi Jocelyn Pack, daughter of Lonen Curtis, the founder of Jocelyn Lonen Winery. After his passing in 2004, Brandi continued in his memory, working hard to create this 2005 Reserve that even received 89 points from Robert Parker.
Parker puts it best: "Aromas of creme de cassis, blackberries, tobacco leaves, and pain grille emerge from the medium-bodied, elegant, nicely restrained but beautifully flavored, well- balanced." And who are we to argue with The Wine Advocate? They'd slap us down and pour out a bottle over our faces if we even tried. And not even a bottle of Jocelyn Lonen Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. They'd use some lesser wine that we couldn't even enjoy, just to teach us a lesson.
With grapes that come from vineyards like Stagecoach, Krupp, Bennett Ranch and Temple, we expect you'll find these two bottles of 2005 Jocelyn Lonen Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon make for a wonderful continuation of Lonen Curtis' dream.
(1) Jakks Pacific 59831 Pok�mon Diamond & Pearl Sinnoh Pok�dex Game
Description: (click show to see it)
You hear it from time to time around "smart" people. Everyone starts talking about Gossip Girl or Twilight, and the guy in sandals sighs and says "Oh, why aren't more people interested in the hard sciences instead of pop culture garbage?" And no one ever answers him. Well, guy in sandals, we have an answer. An easy answer. IT'S BECAUSE YOU JERKFACES ARE NAMING EVERYTHING YOURSELVES.
Honestly, this Pok�mon Diamond and Pearl Pok�dex proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that kids are interested in, and can easily memorize, lots and lots of complex information. Naturally, the first few times a kid runs into, say, a Charmander, the Pok�dex will have to explain things like type, number, letter, height, weight and abilities. But in about a week of playing with this Pok�mon Diamond and Pearl Pok�dex non-stop, that kid is going to know that a Charmander is a Fire type Lizard that uses Blaze, is weak against Water Pok�mon, and evolves into Charmeleon at level 15.
And do you know why they'll know this, Science? It's because little lizards are cute, and "Charmander" is fun to say!" Compare this to, say, any random element on the Periodic Table. We'll give you Yttrium, but after that, it gets kinda boring. They don't even have cute little tattoo-ready avatars!
And that's not the end of it. What about all those weird planet names in Astronomy? Or the bizarrely complex equations in Physics? Who uses Greek letters, anyway? Giving the ability to name important physical phenomena to the people that grew up reading Star Trek novels is a terrible idea, assuming you want to get normal people interested. Can't you at least throw a lowercase i in front of a couple things?
Everytime you complain that no one wants to help you calculate the rate of decay for the atoms in your french fries, keep in mind that if you, science, really wanted to be easily accessible to the world at large, you'd start learning a few things from the Pok�mon Diamond and Pearl Pok�dex. You'd begin to make cute little personas for each element. You'd have 7 mini-games, like "Who's That Pok�mon?" or "Which Pok�mon Doesn't Belong?" to teach kids about classification and logical thinking. You'd even have detailed information about 151 different Pok�mon, only instead of Pok�mon, it would be something sciencey!
But you don't have that, do you science? And that's because you really don't want the wonders of the world to be accessible to the common man. The common man didn't spend long nights working in the lab. The common man didn't skip the prom to finish splicing a potato in the greenhouse. The common man is just so... common!
Science, we're asking you: take a step back and consider the long term. Just like J.J. Abrams finally made a Star Trek for the cool kids, so you too can make a smarter, better, more informed world. Just buy one of these Pok�mon Diamond and Pearl Pok�dexes and study it, dissect it, take it apart and see what makes it tick. And then, give the world a curriculum that has kindergartners begging Mom and Dad to buy them the new "Nobel Gases Expansion pack", or rattling off the facts on how "Einsteinian Crisis" changed everything about Earth-Newton. Don't shy away from the Pok�mon Diamond and Pearl Pok�dex just because it's popular culture and you feel that is somehow beneath you. Embrace it! Let it help you make a brave new world in a single generation!
The data are there and waiting, science. Are you a bad enough dude to understand them?
