The falcon baby that fell out!

A friend sent me this picture of the falcon baby that fell out of its nest on one of the towers at University at Buffalo, last week.

Strangely, it reminds me of a puppy who has done something mischievous!

Clint Mansell = Linkin Park. No, Really!

How can you not draw this conclusion hearing these two tunes??!

Exhibit A: Clint Mansell: Stay With Me (The Fountain OST, 2006)


Exhibit B: Linkin Park: Numb (Meteora, 2003)


They are so strangely similar. Though one is "rock"-ish and the other is "classical"-ish the underlying notes, repetition and rhythm share such a very strong resemblance. I wish I knew music theory to be able to analyze these tunes further.

Was Clint Mansell "inspired by" (of all the bands on this planet) Linkin Park??! The possibility completely blows my mind.



PS: (e:boxerboi), I can't wait for your journal. And you know which one! :)

A Letter of Thanks to James!

image

The event was a HUGE success! We ran out of saliva kits! Nearly 700 people signed up in around 5 hours. If you are still interested in contributing your might to this massive effort against cancer, we are thinking about setting up another recruitment event at the Ride for Roswell event! Watch this space!!!

(e:mike) and (e:libertad), thanks so much for making it! I am so sorry we wrapped it up earlier than we thought - we hardly expected such an enthusiastic response! People were so motivated they dragged their entire teams to sign up! I think I must have consented more than 200 people personally. I feel drunk with happiness that people still believe in honest population research. I swear, I felt my life was worth living when I saw so many people. (e:James), I was delirious when I saw you! Thank you SO MUCH for coming and donating!! You ROCK! m/ :)

Spit for the CURE!!! TOMORROW!!!

It's time to join the fight against cancer, everyone!! It's time to spit it out of our planet! Quite literally...

image

We are asking you for a donation of a teensy bit of your saliva and a bit of your time for Cancer Research.

image

With the help of the saliva you donate, we can pool together information from a large number of people with and without cancer and find answers to the question of why some people get cancer while others don't.

image

With the help of the questionnaire we send you to fill out, we will try and figure out what kind of lifestyle changes will reduce the risk of cancer.

image

Though you won't personally benefit from donating your saliva, this is your chance to make a personal difference against cancer!

image

Your small and personal but incredibly valuable gift to cancer research will go a long long way!!!!

image

We need more weapons than ever to fight this scourge called cancer! Pitch in and spit it out!!!!

image

See you all at Susan G. Komen's Race for the Cure at Delaware Park's Rose Garden tomorrow morning!! Comment, drop me an email, post a chat if you have any questions!!

image

Together, we can research this evil little disease out! :)

image

Come and spit for the cure!! June 13 (Saturday, 7:00 AM to 1:00PM, Delaware Park Rose Gardens)

Microwave Trouble

My microwave just decided to throw in its nukey little towel. The turntable won't stop turning and the light won't shut off till I pull the door open. It doesn't start heating till I push the start button but the turn table and the light keep going as long as the door is shut. This is creepy so I have unplugged it.

image

... which has made me realize what a shocking amount of dependency I have on my microwave. It's especially disturbing considering I just started using a microwave around three years ago. I remember having had to consult a manual to figure out how the contraption worked the first time I used it.
