Belkin Wifi Skype Phone

Good News!  This new WiFi phone ships next month and is cheaper than originally expected.  I believe this will be the device that replaces our landline in our condo.  Well, we don't actually have a landline, but this replaces our need to get one.  Cellphone service is less than stellar inside our place so we are relegated to the patio for calls.  Since we have WiFi throughout the whole building (or will soon ) this phone would give us coverage from the kitchen to the pool.

We are starting to use Skype more and more, in fact this August when I go to Europe for a two week tour we'll be using Skype to call each other. I'll be using the Sprint PPC6700 in any hotspot I can find while I'm there.

Media Central 2.0 is Bigger and Better, but now it's $29.95!

equinux - Website

I love this application so much.  You can see my write up about it on my site under the GOTG heading on the Home Media page.

The programmer who made it got hired by Equinox and now it has been repackaged and cost $29.95.

I'll probably go ahead and purchase it.  It really is quite cool.

If you have a MAC, check it out.  If not, go get a MAC and then check it out!

Muse - Black Holes and Revelations


Granted, I just bought this new Muse album, but I'm really enjoying it so far. I'm only on the fourth track at the time of this posting. I really really liked the last record so my expectations are high.

Soldier's Poem has some real cool "Queen" influences.

Check out their website, it's Uber Rad!

The Magic Castle

Last night we went to Hollywood and visited the Magic Castle with our good friends Renee, Ugo, Josh and Judy.

It's a private club that only allows visitors with an invitation.  Renee is a Massage Therapist and was invited by a client, so that is how we all got the opportunity to  attend.

It was interesting to say the least.  We had dinner and drinks and went to three different shows.  The showrooms are all quite small and intimate so everyone has a good view of the performers doing their tricks. Of course there were card tircks galore, vanishing doves, and amazing slight-of-hand magicians donning their talent of 30 some years. 

I don't think Chelle and I are going to try to become members anytime soon, but it was fun to visit and people watch for sure, and now we can scratch that off of our list of things to do before leaving Cali.

Thanks again to Sweet Renee for her cool event planning skills and the chance to do out of the ordinary things with fun friends!
