Manic Mondays

04.11.2005 · Posted in Entertainment, Technology

Had a rather manic day – meaning I haven’t had breakfast yet. Instead of bitching about it, I’m just going to recap some interesting things I’ve been exposed to today:

This little bugger is a wireless webcam. It’ll stream video, snap pictures on a timer and email them to you, or just act as your regular webcam – except it’s wireless so you can put the thing damned-near anywhere, within reach of an electrical outlet, anyhow. “No, I’m sorry, I don’t know anything about the camera in the ceiling tiles above your shower. My Word, that’s just awful – who could have done something so invasive?!” $200 retail. Read about it on Gizmodo.

Victoria Gotti is my new favorite pastime. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it yet, tune into Growing Up Gotti on AETV. The rich and famous daughter of a mobster serial killer turned single-mom / gossip columnist. She’s got the house on Long Island and my fantasy job. She’s a total nutjob and she’s fabulous – I love her.

And speaking of AETV – have you seen Dog The Bounty Hunter? It’s a hillarious show about a white-trash family of convicts turning do-gooders. They’ve cleaned up their act and now make their livings as bounty hunters – and let me tell you, I wouldn’t mind one of “The Dog’s” nephew/helpers pinning me to the ground and slapp’n on the cuffs.

And this is way too cool – this guy somehow merged the real estate and rental listings from craigslist and Google Maps to make one tool that you can browse real estate and rentals from a map view – VERY FUCKING COOL. And can I just say again how much I love Google Maps? Thanks.

  1. Go ahead and take the white-trash family. Whoever you want.

    I’ll take Ms Gotti’s sons, either of them.

  2. Growing up Gotti is a great show. Bill and I watch it every Monday night – and yeah, the sons are way hot.

    I still can’t get over that fact that Victoria thinks her friend is actually macho. HAHA.

  3. I watch it as well … Luigi cracks me up. The boys are a bit off the wall though, they remind me of all the boys in Philly growing up, you could barely understand what they were saying.
