Why I love my iPod even more:

I was able to use the new iTunes 4.7 software to convert my .mov Quicktime file to an iPod audio file.

Now, I can listen to the trailer whenever I want at work, in the car, at the store.   ;D

I've got it programmed so that "Lord Vader... Yes Master?... Rise" plays every time I start up the iPod Playlist...

$10 to ship a single Kubrick? That's weak. They have one of those shipping systems set up by total price of the item?

I was snooping around trying to decide if I should buy one and it looked like it was $5.45 for basic AirMail (7-10 days), $14 for Express (2-4 days), and then $5 more for Insurance/Registered mail.

The $10 was probably Basic shipping plus Insurance/Registered Mail perhaps?  :-\

I am not sure what to make of this Logray/Jawa mystery.   :-\

I am tempted to buy 1x each chase from Actio-HQ, then sell the extra (what ever I don't get in my case), then again, I am tempted to not spend $50 on a single figure.   :-\

Decisions, decisions, decisions...

Unforunately, I am sensative to MSG in large doses so most Asian Foods are out for me (lest I spent the rest of the night in the bathroom  :-X). 

If I am feeling particularily willing to risk my gut on Chinese, I will indulge in a Sweet and Sour Chicken or a Sesame Chicken with rice dish, but that's about as far as I push it. 

I agree though about the Mongolian BBQ, that is usually pretty good.  We usually end up at Khan's Mongolian a few times a year for a tasty "meat cooked on a big rock" treat!

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC C-3PO on Ebay??

Very interesting...

Seems like NewForce got in the wave 2.5 vOTC case and are shipping them now (I got my ship confirmation today... I totally forgot that I had ordered this case from them). 

Got my 2x 3PO from Amazon today, along with my wave 2.5 case from NewForce (which I forgot I ordered because I didn't expect it to ship).

So, because I only needed 1 C-3PO,  it appears I've got a few extra C-3PO to sell.
edit: my extra C-3POs have been SOLD!

I curse you, Hyper$pace!


Now is one of the times I wish I had it...  :(


Was there anything funky going on in that room?

Maybe the dog saw something "weird" that you were trying in there and now he's afraid to see it again?   :P

Or maybe it's just strange dog behavior.  My sister's dog did basically the same thing, just stopped going in her room one day.  After a bit of investigating, it turned out that her dog was freaked out by a new stuffed "Tigger" she got as a gift. 

When Tigger was on the dresser, facing out into the room, the dog wanted no part of it.  However, if my sister turned the Tigger around, the dog had no problem.  It used to be a fun game at our parent's house for a bit.  Walk towards Tigger and watch the dog get up and leave the room.

For some reason, that Tigger freaked out her dog.  So, is there any 1 new object that has been added to the room recently?  A figure, an article of clothing, something?  If so, try moving things arouns and see if that "fixes" the problem.

Hi All,

Just wanted to report in on a deal I've got going...

I sold some extra stuff to Jesse, and he was right quick to respond to my PMs and he sent out payment with lightning speed! 

How fast you ask?  Well, we started dealing, closed the deal, AND he sent payment all in the same day!  Can't get much faster than that!   ;)

Thanks again for the quick and easy transaction, Jesse!

 :) A++++

Watto's Junk Yard / RIP Sergei Zholtok

Center collapses after excusing himself from game
Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Nashville Predators center Sergei Zholtok died Wednesday of an apparent heart ailment. He was 31.

The Predators announced that Zholtok died in Latvia, where he was playing for Riga 2000 during the NHL lockout.

"We are all saddened and shocked to hear of Sergei's sudden passing," Predators general manager David Poile said in a statement. "He was a hardworking player who was well-liked by his teammates and coaches. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Zholtok family." reported Wednesday night that Zholtok excused himself from a game and collapsed and died on the way to the locker room.

Zholtok left a game in January 2003 because of dizziness and fatigue and was taken to the hospital for tests, causing concern for Wild coach Jacques Lemaire.

"I don't think he's OK," he said at the time.

Zholtok was also a late scratch two nights later against Buffalo when he skated during warmups but didn't feel well enough to play.

The forward then sat out early last season when the problems returned. Zholtok again left in the second period because of fainting spells. He returned to the hospital and was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat and flulike symptoms.

After missing seven games, Zholtok was cleared by a doctor to return to the lineup.

"It's a very sad thing," former Wild teammate Filip Kuba told The Associated Press. "He was a very close friend of mine. He was a very good person. ... It's hard right now to talk about it."

Zholtok appeared in 588 NHL games from 1992 to 2004 with Boston, Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton, Minnesota and Nashville. He joined the Predators on March 5 in a trade with Minnesota.

In 70 games last season with the Wild and Predators, Zholtok had 14 goals and 17 assists. For his career, Zholtok had 111 goals and 147 assists.

"Sergei was a great competitor and a valuable member of our organization for almost three years and will be greatly missed by his teammates and his fans in the hockey world," Wild general manager Doug Risebrough said.

Nashville declined to make a qualifying offer to Zholtok after the end of the season, which ended in a playoff loss to Detroit.

In recent years, Zholtok hooked up with fellow countryman and former Carolina Hurricanes goalie Arturs Irbe to organize an online auction of hockey memorabilia to benefit abused children in Latvia. They collected pucks, sticks and equipment autographed by more than 115 NHL players from 18 teams, including the Wild's Marian Gaborik, for sale to the highest bidder.

"Sergei was the consummate team player," Senators president Roy Mlakar said. "He will be remembered in Ottawa for his sincere involvement in our community. Moreover, he was a class human being and family man, who will be remembered as such by the Senators family."

Zholtok is survived by his wife Anna, and two sons.



He was one of my favorite players when he was with the Wild... Guess I'll have to break out the Zholtok jersey to wear to work tomorrow in memorial.  :(
