house paint

No wonder it will cost $5400 to paint this house. Seems like the winter was really hard on the remaining paint. The front looks extra crappy because I actually hung out the window and scapped it in the fall thinking I was going to paint it.

I hope people don't think I'm a slum lord. I guess it will be fixed soon enough.

Geiger Counter

Does anyone know anything about a (WIKIPEDIA - Geiger counter)? I really need one for a mapping site of radioactive places in buffalo. I am just so damn curious where it is radioactive and where it isn't and moblogging seems like the way to do this right now. I figure I will use an interface based on the interface seeing as no one is using it. This is defiantely a hint to click on the rememberbuffalo link right below the gather link on the right.

Seems useful and scary yet exciting. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about geiger counters other than I want one that is digital.

image

This nice USB one that works with mac and PC comes with a glow in the dark radioactive glass bead.

image

What freaks me out is that most of them come with a radioactive glass bead to test with. Just where or where do you store that? In a lead box. It is seriously the stuff kryptoniite is made of. Maybe this is a bad idea?

Vaseline Glass Test Source
Need a safe way to test out your geiger counter? Try our Vaseline glass bead. Vaseline glass is a type of glass with a small amount of uranium oxide added, which makes it glow under ultraviolet light (also called depression glass). This also makes it slightly radioactive. With the GM-10, we get about 200 CPM with the bead directly in front of the detector window, or about 0.2 mR/hr.

image

The bead is available for just $9.99, and may be ordered online or you can order by mail We're having a special right now, you can get 5 beads for just $39.99!

Congratulations Buffalo Punditit

But why the casino ads? I posted about the artvoice best of buffalo award on (e:news,835) . When I got home I went to checkout buffalopundit's site to see what he wrote about winning the artvoice award. Holy crap, giant casino advertisements. I never got pop up ads visiting buffalopundit.com before. Casino pop up ads?

At first I though maybe I had a virus but no other site does it. Whenever I have no cookies and visit the site, I see full screen casino pop up ads.
The little pop in ad was okay and the banner flashing advertise here

image

but then came these. Maybe he is just trying to take advatage of winning the artvoice award.

Strawberry Shortcake,meet my little pony

The world of scented plastic has a new united front. If you don't believe me check out Record you own strawbeery dance here.



They have combined strawberry shortcake and my little pony into one sweet world of narcotically strong plastic fullfillment. I met a straweberry shortcake at the Salvation Army recently and she still smelled after living through the 80s and 90s. It makes me wonder what kind of toxic compounds make her have such an exceptional "half-life"

image

Last night at (e:robins) party I though there was this bowl of ashes in the food area. Turned out to be a bowl fill of zauberpilze. I ate a handfull figuring why not, it isn't often they have these kind of snacks materialize.

It ended up being the strangest evening. First of all never watch the Chuckie movie before such an adventure. I spent the entire night thinking about chuckie. At one point I convinced myself the only thing that could stop him was strawberry shortcakes sweet scented plastic smell. In my dream I would see evil chuckie and everything was lik black and red and burned. Then a my little pony would ride in with sparkle glitter and stars trailing behind her and a strawberry shortcake doll on her back. Her strawberry smell would cover everything and my dream would return to a natural green scheme which was much more calming.

Saw (e:enknot) for a bit and we taked about new rss like feeds that are pure javascript. We bored everyone but ourselves with out computer talk. Frankly, it was some of the most interesting conversation of the night. I bet you will see more javascript feeds.

There was tons of crazy teacher to student flirt action which was so bizarre considering it all started with a conversation about Mary Kay Letourneau (WIKIPEDIA - Mary_Kay_Letourneau), the teacher with the 13 year old boyfriend that ended up in jail and latter married him.

I had a someone confess their crush on me.

Hate me because I am white and middle class
On the way walking home from (e:robins) there was this increasingly large group of black people that was walking ahead of us. It started out with two guys double riding on a bike but they got off and went slow right next to us, then more and more of them gathered.

As more and more of them gathered I would have normally avoided it (any group of ten people - even hippies) by myself but (e:terry) and (e:matthew) just trudged through. Of course this caused a commotion. The people patted us down to scope and size us up, all in the guise of a hug for the sabres victory which I had no idea about.

I think the main dude was trying to show off in front of the ladies. I think they really wanted to beat up (e:terry) because of his overwhelming whiteness but I think the guy realized he wasn't a little guy when he patted him down. It was the first time in my life I would have been ready to fight, even though they still woud have taken me down. That felt good.

It is kind of ridiculous that I have to be threatended walking home just because I am white and not poor.

Usually, this kind of stuff doesn't happen to me so much alone because I am not so white. But mix (e:terry) and (e:matthew) in and it gets a lot crazier. It's like when I was in Mexico with (e:terry) - we were the target of every scam artist and prostitute.

It made me realize that is exactly why people live in the suburbs. I mean this (e:paul,692) kind of stuff doesn't happen in Kenmore but you do get stuff like this (e:zobar,44) that would drive me just as insane.

Stop hugging my in the name of intimidation
I am really sick of strangers trying to hug me to find out what i have on me. It is such a perversion of a peaceful move. It kind of makes me want a tazer. This one night some guy at the subway stop at Utica and Main put his arm around my neck and talked for like 10 minutes about how he wanted more money for beer but he didn't know where to get it, insinuating that I had it. Anytime I tried to move he would just tighten his arm a bit untill he finally realized I really didn't have anything but a subway token with me and let me go. That was before the gym. I think now it wouldn't happen so much because I would have just punched the drunk in the face. It is precisely why I will not live on Prospect though and why the houses on Normal Street cost about 12k and always will.

I just don't understand what makes people act that way. There is no way I would do the same thing to poor people walking through my neighborhood. But honestly, I can't just pretend like it is just a economic class thing, it is totally racist that they target us. We are totally targeted because we are white. I have noticed the same thing on elmwood. It used to be that poor people asked me for money. But now it often hapens that black guy's in nicer clothes than I have harass me for money and get angry when I say I don't have any. What the hell is up with that?

rejected at goodbar

I am never going to goodbar again. Walked their or (e:jenks)'s birthday they refused me entrance because my license is expired. What the hell is that about?

It's so fucking retarded because I used to go there with chalked ID when I was like 17, so what is the deal now that I am six months short of 30.

I see no reason why an expired license should even matter. I am obviously the person on the card and I am not trying driving.

This is one thing I really hate about america.

The inside was disgusting

All hope is lost, the inside of the mansion at 23 North was disgusting even for $149,000. I would probably cost like 1.3 million to remodel it and would require cranes, something I refuse to need. I went and took a look at it during my break with (e:matthew) and the guy from Holcbery, the realtor. It was a fuckign disaster. Everything was not original, everything was tacky and broken. Honestly, the radio tower, outerbrick wall and parking lot was all it had going for it. In one area someone had shit on the wall I think.

image

image

All it had was this one pretty thing left.

image

image

I honestly smell like the side smell of the interior and it won't come off my clothing. I think even (e:matthew) is over it.

image

image

image

If it was an empty burned out shell of the brick wall it would have been better but I can't imagine halling out and tearing out the thousands of layers of nastiness, not to mention it was so moldy that there were actually mushrooms growing inside, which means you can't just cover stuff over.

Mansion Paradise With a Radio Tower

Oh my freakin god, give me a radio tower. This is my dream come true. a giant mansion at 23 North Street with commercial space, a parking lot and a fucking radio tower near my work. It would mean rental income, and estrip headquarters, a daycare - 11,000 freakin square feet.

I want a radio tower so bad you have no idea. Can you imagine all the applications? Can you imagine the photos?

Cancer Viewer Application

My dermatology viewer application is coming along great. Today I had a meeting with the doctor who requested it and he seemed genuinely impressed. It allows for zoom ,hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, sharpen and position changes which are all logged via surebert to a database so that the image maintains state between uses. Anytime someone switches images, saves, or leaves the site - the current images data is saved to the database. To remain compliant with HIPAA compliant it also keep an annotated log of what it is doing and who is using it and can report what it is doing using HL7

Doctors and clinicians can also add their own annotations.

It feels good to make things that have some purpose other than social networking. The app isn't blurry, I just blurred out everything you could identify.

image

I know its weird but I though skin tones was an appropriate color scheme. When testing some out in ther derm clinic today, I thought about how werid it would be to some day be a patient image inside my own application. I just hope that never happens.

super market sweep

We went to the grocery store last night after the gym. I was tired and really hungary. I swear the extra five more pounds (now at 155lbs) I gained is hungrier than the other pounds I previously had.

So it was like 11pm and I had no list, no coordinated effect with (e:matthew) or (e:terry) and decided to just do it supermarket sweep style.

I seriously just through everything I wanted in the cart and the trick was (e:terry) had the cart so I had to grab as much stuff as I could hold and then run to the cart somewhere in the store to drop it off so I could get more.

image

$500 laters I have food again. This is what we get for going grocery shopping only once a month for three people.

I didn't buy this sushi because it was too expensive $11.75, although I do love octopus and squid but not for that price for nighttime, grocery store grade susge.

image

I also bought some weight gainer mix that could be
3100 calories per drink. I drank half that and thought I was gonna puke. It felt like that episode of southpark when cartman becomes beefcake.

Glad I don't live in california. Apparently, it sucks there according the wegmans.

Yum stooper waffles. They are my mana.
