So happy that the awesome guys at Bootsnake Games finally got this bad boy out the door. I did most of the writing (including that sweet-ass iTunes description), but you should buy it anyway!

Hey, internet. I feel like replacing my incredibly obsolete (GeForce 8800GT - almost four years old) video card. Give me recommendations.

So obviously anecdotal evidence... but I had nothing but issues with my ATI card. Even after replacing it... I still continued to have issues (built my machine in February). Now that could speak more to Sapphire (the company I bought my card from)... but I went with an EVGA GTX 570 and haven't had a single issue since. All my cards before this point (in recent years at least) have been Nvidia based and I have had good luck with them all.

My car assessed the coolant situation and decided that it would be much more efficient to just spray coolant all over the inside of the hood. I'm not sure that it was the best solution, but we'll just have to take a "wait and see" approach.

I'd go "Westside Connection album narrator/host" Keith David, with a sound chip that says "world motherfuckin' wide" every time you drink.

A quick Googling and a less quick pass through Chrome Extensions has turned up nothing. Anyone know if there's an extension or something that gets the "previous track" and "next track" functionality in Windows to play nice with Google Music?

Until there is an API released for Google Music, and someone can write an application to handle tracking, you're stuck using the extensions that only work in Chrome.

There's a black Lexus with heavily tinted windows and a Grateful Dead sticker on I-90, dangerously swerving in and out of traffic.

That sound you hear is Jerry Garcia's beard scraping against his tie-dyed shirt as he shakes his head sadly at you from beyond the grave.

So woozy. So clingy. So missing a spot of fur on his... foreleg.

Wasn't able to get an earlier flight, and it's 102 degrees so Disneyland would probably just kill me. What should I do for the next seven hours in Burbank?

I read that as "fuckyeahpurses" and couldn't figure out A) why you'd reserve that, or B) what the picture had to do with it.

Not wild about the font, but you can't argue with the results.
