It will never cease to amaze me how much engineering and thought goes into Lego Technics kits. The drivetrain isn't even halfway done.

RIP IndyCar. Sad to watch this series die such a slow death.
If there’s one company sponsor that’s synonymous with IndyCar, it’s Target. Sadly, that’s coming to an end, as Target will end its 27-year-long sponsorship of Chip Ganassi Racing at the end of this year, reports the Associated Press. New Target chairman Brian Cornell says he’s streamlining the company’s marketing efforts, and IndyCar didn’t make the cut.

If you want people to care you need a good rivalry and maybe even risk takers

"Your order of "LEGO 911 GT3 RS" has shipped."

(Ordered on June 1, delayed because of packaging defect.)

The final product. Modifications:

-Garam masala instead of powdered cinnamon (I find straight cinnamon a bit too bold).
-Extra egg yolk and almond in the picada for added richness (we had no accompanying carb, so)
-Extra garlic because duh

Overall, the result was excellent. Next time, I'd up the lemon juice slightly and might try adding paprika instead of saffron! Super rich, but not overwhelmingly so. The flavor is remarkable - the last time I had something like this, I was in Barcelona.

You need to spread those spices in a more shaped fashion. Now they look like ants eating your cookies.

+David Ruddock it may be the scotch that I've heard won awards. I haven't actually had any Costco liquor - the state I live in is to churchy/corrupt to allow anyone other than the state government to sell liquor.

I could immediately identify this as a Chinese movie based on the visual FX alone. I don't know what it is, but Chinese films have a very certain look to them - like the entire world is high-contrast HDR 3D. It's bizarre.

Also, Matt Damon as the one white dude among a bunch of Chinese actors? uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

This will probably review absolutely terribly. I don't think America is ready for Chinese movies or, perhaps more accurately, China's movie industry is ready for American audiences. This looks tremendously corny, and in the "no we're actually trying to be very serious" sort of way.

I suspected it was a Chinese movie when I saw all the Chinese in it. Plus, the Great Wall was pretty much a give-away.

Sony must be paying DxO good money for all that consulting work to get their score as high as possible. Give me a break.

+Thomas Heblinger not me personally, but I know lots of people using Sony phones. If I didn't use Nexus, I myself would consider Sony. I've owned many of their products over the years. Price isn't an issue.

"BlackBerry" DTEK50?

More like Alcatel Idol 4.

(it's literally an Idol 4 with a new rear cover and BB's custom software.)

$300 for an SD617 and 16GB of storage? Yeah, get lost, BlackBerry.

Fair enough. I guess Sprint compatibility just isn't worth the trouble.

Russia is literally becoming a Soviet-esque caricature of itself. The government there seems to spite, discredit, or ban anything that is popular in America.
The official launch of Pokémon Go in Russia has been delayed indefinitely, but Moscow City Hall promises to release an app by the end of August that’s kind of similar, but instead of stampeding after branded cockfighting critters, users can “catch” “historical figures” like Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, Yury Gagarin, Alexander Pushkin, and Russia’s only beloved dead post-punk rock star Viktor Tsoi. But you can’t battle them. And it will onl...

The Sand Fire north of LA has painted West LA's sky a rather interesting gray-ish orange this afternoon. Looks like something out of a nuclear apocalypse.

Good free breakfast, nice room, good rate during this time of year. No complaints. WiFi is reasonably quick, too.

Picked up a meeting pass. Hotel looks OK. Bit dated, and the theme (space) is kitchy.

WiFi is crazy slow and there are lots of regular laptop squatters camped out there. Coffee is good, though.
