Which tarp should I buy from +Amazon.com? The $2.99 or $99,990.00 version? This is an even bigger quandary than the old shoes I found for $35.99 or $10,250.00.

But some sizes are Prime-eligible, you get what you pay for, etc.

I had a pair of dark indigo raw selvedge jeans I wanted to convert into a pale blue pair. 

This is heresy in the raw denim community. I figured it was OK since I have two pairs of raw denim jeans, I'm going for the fade with the other pair, I really wanted a new pair of pale blue jeans, and repurposing makes more sense than buying even more.

To do the deed I used three Home Depot buckets in the tub. One was bleach with water, one was just water, and one was water with hydrogen peroxide to neutralize any remaining bleach. My plan was to bleach, rise, neutralize. Fun fact, bleach and hydrogen peroxide combined make Chlorine gas. So I had that going for me.

I used an old pair of jeans that I liked as a reference point. Since even light blue jeans look dark when they're wet I soaked these and kept them around during the adventure.

As afraid as I was of the bleach I expected the jeans to either immediately fall apart or bleach to white in 10 seconds. Turns out that with a 10 to 1 water to bleach ratio it still took 40 minutes.

When I thought they were finished baking I took them out and ran them through a regular washing machine cycle. I think I came pretty close for my first try.

I laughed when I saw it. But really? Who else could the Seahawks put on the ticket for the game against the Santa Clara 49ers?

A "Legion of Boom" boom truck appeared on the construction site building the new Google campus today. I approve. The arm is blue with a bright green hose and "Legion of Boom" in bold white letters. To complete the look the base is gray, lets say Wolf Gray, with a big Seahawk logo.

Basically it's exactly what I would do if I owned a big boom truck. The only way it could be any better is if it transformed into a giant Decepticon killing machine that ate the Santa Clara 49ers for lunch.

Transformers Age of Extinction is good and was nearly awesome. It seems like Michael Bay listened to some of the criticisms from Transformers fans and fixed a lot of the gripes from the previous 3. Slower robot fight scenes where you can see the action. No more campy slap stick shit or racist silly robots. No more Shia Labeouf. More Transformers from the G1 universe. Fewer Optimus Prime speeches. Spoiler: Optimus finally kills humans. The movie is filled with great stuff. There were a lot of scenes where I was so excited I had to either laugh/cheer or verify with Alison that it was really truly awesome. I'm talking "Fuck Yeah!" stuff. 

But... But it is simply too long. There's not 2.5 hours of goodness in the movie. Unlike the train-wreck of TF2 or the uneven TF3 which was weighed down by existing in the continuity of T1 and T2, this Transformers saga starts clean with a new story. And it's a pretty good one.

I left the theater feeling that I could take T4 and make it awesome simply by cutting out a few unnecessary characters and side plots. And after a day to think about it I doubly believe it now. Give me T4 as is, without a single re-shoot, new footage, or even dialog, let me edit it and take out a few characters, a few scenes, cut down on redundant battles, and I could give you a 90 minute kick ass thrill ride. A T4 that would make more sense to people who don't already know who Galvatron is and would make people who know who Grimlock is love it even more.

The Blu-Ray release of this move doesn't need and extended directors cut. It needs a reduced/streamlined fan cut. If Paramount is looking for a volunteer for that project I'm ready.

Today I learned that +NFL Shop sorts +Seattle Seahawks license plate frames by gender. I didn't know license plates were gender specific. Now I do. Here's where you find those womanly frames.

The best part of +Frontier Communications telling me my internet would be down for two days was when they tried to sell me virus protection. How am I going to get a virus without a network connection? Floppy disk?

My Trezor arrived. Yeah. Except their security warning made me laugh. They put a hologram on the box so you can tell if it has been tampered with. Except they only put a hologram on the top. Should I be concerned that I got my Trezor out of the box without hurting the hologram or ripping the box? Am I trustworthy? Can I trust myself with Bitcoin on a device I may have tampered with? Humm...

This is something I've never seen happen before. Watermelon rinds shriveled up into little hearts. Either I've picked up after myself 100% of the time my entire life, or this is what happens after you BBQ watermelon. BBQ watermelon you ask? Yes. We put a little salt, pepper, and honey on the watermelon slices and seared them on the grill. It tasted strange and great. BBQ watermelon. Who knew? And after you're left with cute little watermelon hearts.

We either got the bad crew, or got the good crew on their worst day. They created several problems in our yard. To start with they cut down a tree that was marked to keep. It wasn't supposed to be cut, one because we didn't want it cut, and two it was unclear if it was on our neighbors property. But they cut it anyway. Then they butchered our landscaping. One side of our house is an open path to the back yard. The other side has carefully installed landscaping. The crew decided to pull the debri they took (they left a fair amount behind) right through our landscaping. They couldn't even be bothered to carry the branches. So they tore up our plants and scattered gravel all over the garden as they drug the debri they took across the ground and over our plants and bushes. There is now dirt where there used to be gravel, gravel where there used to be bark, and damaged plants where there used to be spring. They're going to try and fix things, but even if they do, I still wouldn't recommend dealing with them.

Slow, expensive, and unprofessional. When I called he said it would take 20 minutes to get to my house. 15 minutes later he called back saying it would be another 20 minutes. 30 minutes after that he arrived. Somehow it took 45 minutes to drive the 1.5 miles to my home. When he arrived he quoted $140 to drill out the lock and ruin it, or $160 to open it. After opening the lock he said there was an additional $25 house call fee. This is at 4:00 on a weekday. And finally he required a check made out to him personally and not to Redmond Around the Clock Service. I’ve needed locksmith services 3 times in Redmond and this was by far the worst experience.
