Maury Povich TV Paternity Tests

Why do people do this? My favorite is when there are two guys and a girl, and Maury says to boy number one: "You are NOT the father." And then to boy number two: "You ALSO are not the father." Then everyone runs backstage crying.

The Secret to Photography...

The secret is to take as many photos as you can: practice, practice practice! I also found that most shots are better off without using the flash, which totally changes the mood of the shot, adding a jarring brightness that's not naturally there.

Only problem is, when you're working in low-light situations, the shutter needs to be open longer, and the image is subject to the movement of your hands. I wish I had a tripod, but I'll have to do without for now. Here's a recent shot:

The Puerto Rican Day Parade

It turns out there were about 3 Million people at the parade this past Sunday. But there are only 800,000 Puerto Ricans in New York City. Hmmmm, there must've been either some imports, or some imposters. We only hung around for about an hour, but man what a celebration! It was a beautiful sunny day too, just perfect.

Lakers Got Owned Last Night.

Check the blurb from

If not for a Kobe Bryant trey, the Pistons would be one win from a Finals sweep.

Exactly. Pistons up 2-1.

"G4TechTV" Channel Removed from TimeWarner

It was a sad evening last night when I called my cable operator to find out that the network has been canned from my cable service. It turns out that G4 took over the TechTV channel, and TimeWarner doesn't have the rights to show "G4" content. I begged and I pleaded with them and all they could give me was 30 days of free HBO. I finally said okay, and flipped to HBO. They were showing PeeWee's Big Adventure... Just kill me now.

Kobe Ties the NBA Finals Series

With an amazing 3-pointer, with just 10 seconds to go. Still, the Pistons were right in the game the whole night, and I guess they just didn't want to foul him. They were on the brink of finishing off the Lakers' entire season. No team has ever come back from a 0-2 start in their home court. Looks like it's going to be a classic series.

Worst BatMobile Ever.

The New York Daily News features this picture of the next BatMobile, for the Bat-flick opening next summer.

I can't believe these designers. It's almost like they don't know what looks good to the general public.

"Someone's gonna have to get fired."

"Judgement Day" on G4TechTV.

The only bad thing about just getting the TechTV channel is that I missed out on some of the original episodes of this great show. I just catch the re-runs while I can, but there's nothing like fresh gaming news. Basically the show plays like Roger and Ebert, where two guys with different tastes review the latest games. A lot of times they bicker back and forth, but this is actually good because it helps to give you a more comprehensive review. Check it out, if you're interested. I give it the "A-Okay" sign.

What miserable weather for a weekend.

I thought it was June, and I'm sitting here in my apartment freezing. It rained on Saturday, and there's still a depressing cloudiness over the area today as well. I was going to grab some food at the supermarket, but I might be ordering some pizza instead. I hope all of you are doing well.
