Goodbye, IMDB

Dear Internet Movie Database,

I hate to be so blunt, but there’s something that’s been on my mind and we can’t just keep ignoring the issues.  We’ve had our fun over the years, but I really think it’s time we see other people.

It’s not me, IMDB, it’s you.  You just give and give… but lately you’ve been giving too much.  I understand that your services are provided at no-charge to me.  I understand that a website needs a little extra cash on the side to keep itself going – even if that means bringing in little advertisements on the side.  But lately we’ve grown apart.  We’ve become so distant, so out of tune.  Suddenly you think you’re larger than life.  I load you up and you’re not even ashamed of the little ads you’re hanging out with these days.

Sometimes I just want to find out who played “Russian Suit #2″ in the new Indiana Jones flick, when suddenly the cast list is overtaken by a giant “Bat Signal” floating around the page.  It’s very distracting.  Even insulting, really.  Am I not good enough for you that all the sudden you have to flaunt the Dark Knight in my face?

I thought, “hey – I’ll just refresh – maybe it was a mistake.”  I did my little F5 dance for you and began reading the plot summary when, low and behold, the words become riddled with bullet holes.  Disgusting.  Are you just trying to impress me?  It’s just slowing down my already-sluggish mail machine.

Sorry IMDB – I can’t take it anymore.  I thought you were “The One”, but I realized there are other movie databases in the WWW Sea.  Maybe one of them can make me happier.

I’m going away now and will never look back.  Please, don’t keep in touch – it’s too painful.

Your once-loyal patron,

Get what you pay for with UPS 2nd Day Air!

I shipped a box down to California for about a 750-mile trip.  2nd Day Air was expensive, but in tracking the package I see that I’m getting my money’s worth:

If you can’t handle the heat…

Weather WarningYeah, if the local Washingtonians aren’t complaining about all the supposed rain they get up here, they are complaining about all the sun they are about to get for the next few days!




What really made me laugh is the “Weather Warning” that is being highlighted everywhere…

More puddle-blowers spotted!

Things that keep me up at night No Comments »

I wish I had a better camera on my phone… I tried to snap a picture while waiting at a red light as proof but it did not turn out at all.  Anyway, I spotted more people with leaf blowers out in the drizzle blasting the sidewalks when there were NO LEAVES there.  I thought maybe they were cleaning up after trimming or something, but I didn’t see any tools or clippings anywhere.  One was spotted on Monday evening on my way home, and the other was spotted here on Microsoft grounds early Tuesday morning.
