the 106,800 dullah blog...



i sensed some distress in soapyDave's post on the evil empire the other night. i called him immediately to coerce him into continuing his blog. it was a false alarm.

instead, he informed me of the million dollar homepage.

erected by a down-and-out university kid in the UK desperate to pay down tuition fees, his page is quintessential to the ideals of the internet.

it's all about money... all to a good cause of course. at $1 per advertising pixel, the guy paid off the cost of his "Uni" education for the remaining 3 years (about $37,000 USD), within 3 weeks of selling pixels.

it's rather ironic that he's quit school now...

interestingly, i figure the bigtubofgoo is worth at least $106,800 USD at the going rate. once again, i'm under-valued by da man.

but then again, beggars can't be choosers, eh.

the habs...

i cashed in on another xmas gift last night. i was lucky enough to attend the calgary flames-montreal canadiens game at the saddledome.

very entertaining game.

i'm a habs fan. we lost 3-2. not surprising though. i'd like to call out some players on my team: radek bonk, mike rebeiro, michael ryder, alex kovalev...

man, you guys sucked.

good news though. jarome "iggy" iginla might be back in form. goodie for da pool, eh.

movies and dvds...

war of the worlds...damn scary. spielberg gives tripods a really bad name. excellent (regardless of whether you think tom cruise is a freak in real life). 5 stars.

firefly... took awhile to watch the only season it was on FOX. slow start. picked up as the season progressed. interesting ideas. it's supposed to be cult favourite now; however, i can't understand how. there was so little of it shown on air... certainly, it FOX didn't cancel it i could see it blossum into something special. i'd recommend it if you were obsessed with sci fi. will have to watch "serenity" - the movie sequel to the TV show.

I was at that game too. I got tickets from a guy at work and sat up in the third tier. I didn't think the game was that great. Neither team really had long stretches of good play.

gee, i didn't see you there len. i was seating in the second tier.

there was a good fight though. i could see mccarty bleeding from at least 250 feet away. there's no bad seats in the 'dome, eh...

Len said...

Yeah, we could see the blood from the third tier, too. I did have bad seats once. I was on the third tier behind the camera. The best view I had was through his viewscreen.
