it's a bit late, I'm feeling a little amped up...

and finally - finally - the ps3 rolls the upconverted dvd picture happiness, but first -
"when people who used to wrap tin foil around bunny rabbit antennas get a ps3..."

See, I hooked up things last night and was so happy with the visuals from music, and then I tried to play a movie.

Huh. Why am I watching static blink on my tv? It's very sharp static - like digital static - cool...
but it's not The Fast The Furious - All New Tricked Out Edition!! - What's going on???

ugh.... ok, google - hit me - what cha got??
"HDMI cable - bought a new one, stopped the flicker"
"HDMI cables are fickle ..."
"is it flickering with a red screen?"
"the red light of doom"
"I"m on CNET to show you the ps3 blinking problem - game goes in, and it blinks. It's the HDCP copy protection handshake between the game system and the tv set - the tv thinks everything is fine, and the PS3 thinks everything is fine. To fix it, if you're comfortable with a slightly technical fix - unplug the HDMI cable and wait three or five seconds. Plug it back in and voila - we've got sound. it's fixed..."

er, ok. tonight I'm gonna ... turn off the tv. turn it back on - aha!!!! Kung Fu - yay!!!

it's an interesting twist to the 'hold on, just a little bit more -cool - I can see the game - don't move at all, or we'll loose the station" ...

hope everyone is having a fine time ... and a great weekend ...

Saturday in March...

the rain makes that awesome rain noise - plit plat plit plat... a cool spring breeze rolls in through the living room window, over the back of the sofa and onto my shoulders and neck. Blue sits beside me, wondering if it's too early to sleep, or perhaps shel'll take a nap. Hard call, frankly.

We're pausing at the Hobbit House as we wait to go over to the Duke Coffeehouse - Ear Power is playing tonight. Sophy is someone's kitty...

We just came from helping Savannah celebrate her birthday - who remembers turning 22?? It was nice and fun .. yay tasty 33 1/3 chocloate cakes!!

We rolled in from Cary town - I want to go and spray paint an S in front of all the Cary town signs, for no good reason! We had a quick visit with the Nate and Carrie - and Nutmeg - they're chilling in a new place - they've got an apartment as their new abode is being built - yay!!! Spacious place, the apartment - and Boo's in love with their closets!

We enjoyed a bite to eat, a pet of the pup, and were off!

Not to bad for a day that also included a decent amount of moving shit around the house, some cleaning, and general weekend blase'-ness.... weeee....

Ok. just an update - for pics head over to my Flickr page - Here's a new set!!!!
