somehow we're only 124th
I thought some of you might enjoy this. Hopefully its not too small.
Wow! of all the problems to have... yes, now scientists have now proven that the Jabulani soccer ball being used at the World Cup is "too perfect".
Yup, you read correctly, "too perfect".
Recently I was convinced to eat at Zingerman's Roadhouse after many a friend told me "how it has unbeatable barbecue". Sadly, this was far from the truth. While I maintain a strict love of Zingerman's Deli, I was disappointed by the quality of food and service at the roadhouse.
By contrast, I also recently tried the Arbor Brewing Company for the first time and was incredibly impressed. What are you best and worst restauranting experiences in AA?
Hey guys, I hate to make a personal army request, but a friend of mine and a UM student is in an online polling contest for a sponsorship by Taylor Acoustic Guitars and Elixir Strings. He's currently in sixth place and needs to be at least fifth place to qualify. However, today is the last day of voting (you can vote once per day per email address), so I'm here to call on the mighty e-power of the blog to help get him up into the top 5 before today is over. If he makes it through, I'm almost certain I could convince him to write a song about MGoBlog (many of his songs are already about UM/Ann Arbor or the area). Anyways, the voting link is here:
And if you want to check out more of his stuff before deciding to support him or not, his website has a few more songs than the contest page:
Thanks in advance!
A mosquito, thermo-nuclear Michigan sized, just landed on my desk, next to a spilled drop of coffee, and promptly drank up the entire drop.
I now have a hyper-caffinated giant mosquito attacking my head, and I am so, so screwed. I will probably go home today in hypovolemic shock.
Hey gang, I'm turning to you for some technical help as I have in the past. This time I'm trying to take streaming video and put it onto my iPod so I can use it on the go (really I just need the audio portion).
I have Real Player Downloader, and I had some moderate success downloading the streaming content with that ... except the sound was left out of all but one of those clips.
I'm wondering if I can just stream the video and have a cable going from my headphone jack to my mic jack and then use software to record it that way. Time is not an issue, I can leave it running overnight. I would like to minimize the amount of software I need though - I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible.
