Happy Birthday, Matt!

So this is one of the new 4G models, yeah?  And not a leftover 3G unit?
That's the first I've heard of any non-Apple Store retailer that had the new models in.

I was at a Target today and they still had all of the old signage and stuff up, and they're supposed to be official iPod resellers.

Hope you enjoy the iPod and I look forward to seeing what you think of it.

Yep.  The Target I went to still only had 3G left-over 15GB and Mini iPods, but Best Buy near my house had both the 20GB and 40GB 4G in stock (w/ the new clicky wheel, longer battery life, etc.).  

Just a quick run-down on what I got in my package from Best Buy:
20GB 4th Generation iPod
USB 2.0 cable
Firewire cable
AC Power adapter/charger
iTunes Software

And in the Digital Music Starter Kit:
2 months FREE Napster subscription service
10 FREE Napster downloads
Dumbass Napster sticker (for my skateboard I guess?  ::))
10-pak TDK CD-R
$100 in coupons (10% off CD-R, $20 off iPod speakers, $25 off inMotion iPod Stereo, $5 off CD label kit, 15% headphones, 10% any CD, 10% off DVD player, 10% digital music accessories, 10% off car stereo deck).

More to come...

I, unlike my esteemed colleague Virex, pulled the trigger on a 20GB iPod at Best Buy tonight.

I almost bought a 15GB version at Target for $250, but decided in the end that the extra 4hrs of battery life, the extra 5GB of space, and the $35-value free gift pack from Best Buy easily made up for the $50 price difference, so I grabbed a 20GB iPod for $300 tonight.

It's charging as we speak, and I'm off to download some music so I can cram my iPod full before I leave for Boston on Sunday.  Didn't buy any accessories yet, I'm gonna try it out first to see what I need, then when I get back, I'm gonna pick up a few other things to go with it (case, battery pack, etc).

Look for a full review of how my iPod worked out when I get back from Boston... after all, I wouldn't write a review for flip-flops if I hadn't broken them in first, right?  Same thing here  :P

What about Aero bars?  Youse guys have dose?  

I saw those both times I went to England, but I didn't try one.  I did, however, try:

That's right.  Yorkie wrappers have cool slogans like:
It's NOT for girls.  
Not available in Pink.



Must be the magic:

(subject to change)

I know you ordered one thing, but we're just gonna go ahead and swap out something similar, ok?   ::)

What next, shipping old PotF2 Emperors in the place of he OTC Emperor? >:(

These turds better get their act together or they are gonna go the way of the Wizards of the Coast Fan Club store...

To tide us over until the review gets here...

I've got something that should appease the flip-flop, vintage, AND, Star Wars fan in all of us:

Anyone got a complete set of R2, 3PO, and Vader ESB Flip-Flops?



1. Padme Amidala (Fireside Dress)
2. Clone Trooper (neutral pose, removable helmet)
3. Ask Aak (Gran Senator)
4. Ayy Vida (Twi'lek 'Entertainer' from Outlander Club)
5. Nyrat Agira (Human 'Entertainer' from Outlander Club)
6. Shu Mai (Separtists)
7. Owen Lars w/Droid
8. Beru Whitesun w/Droid
9. Cleigg Lars w/Chair
10. Pablo-Jill (Jedi Knight) w/base


Not too bad here... another 4/10.

When the heck are we gonna get our Lars Family 3-pack?   >:(


Here's my choices:

10.  Admiral Ozzel
9.  Captain Needa
8.  Major Bren Derlin
7.  Toryn Farr
6.  Cloud Car Pilot
5.  Zev Senesca with removable helmet
4.  Wes Janson with removable helmet
3.  Ice-Cream Maker Guy!  (great OCB, now you’ve got me wanting one too)  :D
2.  NEW Princess Leia in Bespin Gown
1.  NEW un-buff Dagobah Luke Skywalker w/cloth Yoda bag and crates.  It’d be nice if he came with a swamp base/stand that allows him to do hand-stands!


Hmmm... 4/10 not too shabby!  Actually, it looks like Hasbro read my list because I specifically asked for Handstanding Luke!   :P

My second deal with Dave is underway...

He sent payment out to me super-fast and super-smooth.

I would not hesitate to strike up another deal with him... and neither should you!

From the Pre-Season Rankings:
23.   Minnesota   10-3   187   17


Haven't seen that in a while!


I'm a tad bit nervous about my Wave 1 case from'm thinking its the one with Luke since other etailers are also shipping that case, but with those bastards it may actually wind up being the Wave 1.5 sans Luke.

Anyone want to place a bet?

I had heard a long while ago that Jackman was in the running, dangnabbit now my wife has something else to drool over.  That was the only reason we went and saw the LOTR movies together :P

He's the reason my wife went to see the movie "Troy" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" as well as the LotR flicks.

Hey!  If it's true, then for once my wife will actually be the one to suggest a Bond movie and I won't have to waste one of my movie picks on it!  :)

Have you guys hear about this?

I heard on the radio today that Brosnan is out as Bond and Orlando Bloom will be his replacement in a prequel-Era Bond movie?!?

MGM mum on Brosnan returning as Bond

Pierce Brosnan turns in his license to kill

Bloom to play Bond, young Bond



I've decided I'm mailing them to the North Pole

You're giving them to Brent?

Why does he want them?
