I assume you people have seen the news. I hope you have. It's better than Saturday Night Live. Then again, I'd rather watch C-Span.
Ike slammed Galveston in a spectacular rush of wind, water, and filth. Does anyone remember a tiny little storm called Katrina, that wiped a city off the face of the earth? For the life of me, I won't understand why anyone would stay during the mandatory evacuation. You know what? Stay and suffer.
I wonder how fast the rich white people will get back to Texas, compared to the poor african americans of New Orleans. Apparently, as our recently imprisoned friend Kanye West once said, "George Bush don't like black people"... Well, he doesn't really, but he sure does love Texas! You know his redneck ass is gonna haul back to Crawford to clean up his front porch the second he gets a free chance. I give that until Tuesday.
I'm awake at this obscene hour. Why? The Today Show.
Continuous coverage of this storm that was the size of the state it hit. If I see one more interview of one more redneck who lost his 3 story condo to a storm, and who's life was only made worse because he stayed, I'm going to run down my clean non-flooded street screaming.
Here's an idea, did anyone down south see the news? Anyone see this thing on local or national weather broadcasts? It's not like it was hard to miss. Someone explain to me why anyone stayed. I don't get it. You know that your house is just going to fall on you and you may end up just floating a few towns away on your front door.
Rebuild, redecorate, buy crap for your mobile homes all the way up to your gated mansions. I feel bad for everyone involved because this shouldn't be happening in today's society, but if you're stupid to make it worse on yourself, I don't know what to say. Read through the rest of my blog perhaps.
Good luck people. Peace. Watch out for those waves.

So it's going down. Are you ready to rock Keith Richards style? Minus the coconut tree.
Like before all iEvents, Skippy is here to help you out in all of your last minute shopping needs. What can you buy your annoying little nephew that bites this holiday season? Well, aside from one of those monkey/backpack/leashes, you'll be seeing plenty of great new iProducts in just a few hours.
Let me explain.
I know what goes down. I just do. How? Who knows. It's a gift. An iGift.
I'm going to run down the list:
Price drop on the Shuffle
Price drop on the Classic
A newly redesigned Nano that's been splashed all over the Interwebs
An iPod Touch with more curves than your size 0 dream date
iTunes 8 - yes, because everything should be as good in thousands of squares.
Remember that multicolored rumor? Bullshit. Those muti-colors are going to be in the form of an expanded color palette for the Nanos / Shuffles. No, you won't be seeing Dalmation or Flower Power iPods. Sorry.
Steve's gonna go all out. No iPod is safe when it comes to the yearly September update in 2008. If you're really good, you may even see colors on that iTouch.
That's right, I said iTouch instead of iPod Touch to save time, instead of taking the time out of my day to say 2 words instead of 1.
For all you kiddies that think your pet peeve is hearing the word iTouch, I have this to say to you:
iTouch iTouch iTouch iTouch iTouch iTouch iTouch iTouch iTouch iTouch...
I'll be seeing you all later! Enjoy your day, and Steve, prove to the world you're just fine.
He looks better. Trust me. It was a bug, and he isn't sick. He's Steven P. Jobs. What the hell on earth would make him sick? Sars? The Plague? He's immortal. That's all there is to it. Just like the iPod.
Peace fellow iLovers. May your wallet be bountiful, and your credit cards maxed, en lieu of iDay.

Every single damn Latino song has the same beat.
I'm not bashing you if you happen to be Puerto Rican, Cuban, Mexican, Texican, or work at a Taco Bell, but JESUS.
Get some imagination people. Pull a Bono. Mix it up a bit.
Yeah, that's about it.
I want a Crunch Wrap now.
