Celtics v. Lakers 2008

At 2:21, 86 - 123 for Boston, there's no other way to describe it. It's a massacre. Boy, I wish I were watching this series live, but I'm listening to the live ESPN broadcast on NBA.com so all's well. Visuals shall have to wait.

Mad Money and me (I think)

Take this test!
You're probably no stranger to a little break now and then, but wouldn't it be great to pull out all the stops on vacation? So, if you had a fortune, you'd definitely spend it on seeing the sweetest sights on seven continents. From hiking the mountains of Peru to strolling down the boulevards of Paris, you'd love the chance to experience all the things the world has to offer, especially if they're totally luxe.

But you don't need mad money to indulge now and then. It might just take something as small as a three-day weekend or a sunny afternoon in the park to make you feel like (you've won) a million bucks. So the next time you're at home staring at the walls, it might be a good time to plan your perfect trip — who knows, you might just be able to make it happen some day!

Live Earth

1. I've just downloaded and installed Bryce 5.5 on my computer. I can't wait to start playing with it!

2. I'm watching Live Earth clips in increments on Youtube because the quality on MSN sucks when I'm using my favorite web animal. I hope more environmentally-friendly computing technology comes along after this; at the moment, my P4-powered desktop is a power-hog and I'm sure as hell not the only person using something like this. While "greener" processors have been developed and put into the streams of commerce, I have yet to see them proliferate in my corner of the world.

Unlimited storage

The storage meter is history. So Yahoo! says. I wonder when Google's going to make its own "unlimited" announcement?

The Untouchables: Capone Rising

300 star Gerry Butler and Nicolas Cage in The Untouchables prequel? That's two reasons for me to watch the film when it comes out. The Scotsman as Irish cop Jimmy Malone is just fascinating. Unfortunately, Nic Cage isn't on the roster anymore due to scheduling conflicts. Bring him back! I remember The Untouchables from years ago - that is one memorable Mafia movie. Of course, everything else pales next to the Godfather series, but who knows? I still think Cage would have made a great Capone.

Deaths in Malaga (not the Spanish Malaga - the Philippine one)

Just a little footnote on the struggle between some sugarcane farmers and hacienda owners: 2 farmers slain, 6 hurt in Negros Occidental clash.

As the caption to the photograph on inquirer.net says, there is "Blood in the Canefields". Private security guards fired at farmer-beneficiaries of a five-hectare portion of the Hacienda Velez-Malaga in La Castellana, Negros Occidental this morning. There are two deaths as of press time, but then, since when has there been peace in land disputes? The thing is, a little trigger-finger control could never have been amiss. Geez.

Bloody geography. I never knew there was a Malaga here (Velez-Malaga, to be precise).

Hope for the Trailblazers

I haven't seen a NBA game in ages, but the Trail Blazers used to be my favorite team - until they faded out of my sports news radar. After landing the monicker Jail Blazers and descending to the pits, it seems that my Trail Blazers have a chance at redemption. See these Yahoo! articles: West fumes after Portland Trail Blazers win NBA Draft Lottery and Cause for celebration.
