There’s an energy crisis going on, no one can deny that. It hasn’t reached the point that it did in the 70s…yet.

Gas is expensive, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any cheaper any time soon. So what can we do about it?

Well, there’s a Japanese company that wants your car to run on water.

I think that is pretty damn ridiculous. It’s awesome. Genepax has actually created a water fueled car! And with all the ice caps melting, there will be plenty of water for us to tool around in our little SmartCar looking contraption.

New Contact Lenses!

At Citadel, the company that owns 101.9 The End, we have pretty good health insurance. As a part of that, I also have vision coverage, which is very nice for a guy that wears contacts and glasses.

Recently I went to an eye doctor and got a check up and some swanky new contact lenses.

I went to my provider’s website, and found an optometrist near my apartment. In particular, I was looking for someone who took appointments on weekends because I work 6 days a week. I found a doctor just a few blocks from my place that was open on Saturdays and made an appointment.

I get a lot of CDs each day, most of them I don’t ever listen to. Sometimes I feel randy and listen to something that is clearly going to suck.

Enter Eve to Adam.

These guys look like Crazy Town‘s stylist got a hold of Three Days Grace. Yeah, it’s that bad.

And the music isn’t any better.

The content of the lyrics, the theme of the song, is respectable. It’s about soldiers coming home. But that isn’t enough to save them like it was with 3 Doors Down. But it isn’t all bad.

The best thing about this CD isn’t the music, packaging, or anything that actually has to do with the band itself. No. It’s the little toy soldier that came with it. Is it bad that the best thing about the band is the toy they sent with their CD?

I submit that it is.

Yeah, I get a lot of terrible music, but sometimes I get toy soldiers, too.

Let’s call it a push.

It’s Friday the 13th. Yep, that means a bunch of otherwise normal people will be freaking out today. I’m not a very superstitious person, so I think people that freak out about a day like today are pretty silly.

What’s more is that there is no real historical reason for thinking Friday the 13th is unlucky. I was researching this earlier and on Wikipedia it is stated that the superstition didn’t even appear until late in the 19th century. Though Friday has long been considered an unlucky day, and 13 an unlucky number, the combination of the two as an ├╝ber-unlucky day is much more recent.

I’ve looked for a source as to why Friday the 13th did become an unlucky day, and can’t find any hard reason other than Friday and 13 are both unlucky, so why not Friday the 13th? I think most superstitions are pretty silly, and I especially think that Friday the 13th in silly.

I don’t know what you’re planning on doing to survive the day, but I’m going to see The Happening with the Redhead. Because there’s nothing better on Friday the 13th than a good scary movie!

Talk to you tomorrow…hopefully.

On Monday I went to see Kanye West with the Redhead. Holy shit, am I ever happy I made that decision! (A fellow blogger and friend, Luke, also went to the show, though he went in Phoenix. Check out what he thought here.) I Twittered throughout the show, you can see what I said then-and-there at twitter.com.

I’ve putting this post together for more than a week. Don’t get your hopes up, though, it’s not good enough for a week’s worth of effort. Anyway, with that disclaimer out of the way, let’s get to it!

I generally hate my birthday.

It’s supposed to be a day that is all about me. It’s the one day a year a person is allowed to be selfish, self-centered, and celebrate themselves.

But mine is usually forgotten.

I’ve had very few birthdays in my life that I can remember being really good. I didn’t get a cake for my 16th birthday, and no one remembered it until 3 weeks later. That’s just one example, but I don’t often finish the day thinking, “Man, that was one hell of a birthday!”
