||I've got Triads (and Cartels) right now, but I'm thinking about picking up a pair of P1.1s to ride this season. Anyone have experience with them, particularly compared to the Triads?

||I'm subscribed to a "future technology" blog, which often shows completely speculative technology or, at least, speculative applications of existing technology. It's an interesting mash up of science and science fiction-- things we *may* see in the next 5/10/20 years, but maybe not. Anyway, all that to say this article was in my reader today, and I thought it was interesting: http://www.tuvie.com/e-ink-display-technology-implementation-by-continuum/

||Shaka Shaka Shaka... I knew you liked to dress up like a tiger, but this whole interspecies thing is taking it to a new level. (OK, fine.... I admit it was photoshopped. The original you can find here)

||Check out this fun little audio tool: http://lab.andre-michelle.com/tonematrix It's amazing how intuitive some tools are getting for music making. This one is simple enough my nearly 4 year old can use it. However, the folks over at Hobnox took it up a level and combined it with a full suite of drum machines, mixers and effects pedals, all inside a web-based flash player. http://www.hobnox.com/noxtools.902.en.html Click on Audiotools and use the tone matrix configuration. Here's the result of my quick little 20 minutes toying around with this thing: http://www.hobnox.com/BenFoster,files,c01ae903bad48ee03ecc8dc82ee7aa29 Nothing too ambitious (the "bass" line and 2nd drum part are the defaults for the setup) but it was a fun little experiment. I'll play more when I have time.

||Don't know how many Rage Against the Machine fans are out there, but Tom Morello has a new rap/rock project with Boots Riley that I think is the closest to RATM he's come in 10 years. Great great great stuff... http://www.myspace.com/streetsweepersocialclub

||Alright kiddies.... We're in the process of finishing off a 16' x 32' room in the basement. The original plan was to make a play room out of it, but when the electrician wired a box high on the 16' wall for the "future big screen", and then I decided to wire for surround while the wall is open, I'm starting to think it's going to be a playroom/theater room. That said, I'm starting to look around for a surround sound system for the room. Not comitted to it yet, but looking. Anyone have any decent recommendations for a budget price? The viewing area is going to be roughly 16' x 15'-- the rest will be play area for the kids. Looking right now at the Klipstch Quintet III, but I don't like that it doesn't really have a comparable speaker to expand to 7.1 at some point. Also considering Definitive Tech and Mirage speakers as well. Most folks I know have done well with Onkyo receivers in the past, but not sure if anyone has another recommendation.

||I threw my back out this weekend. Badly. But I've got too much stuff to get done, including framing out several rooms in my basement. I'm thinking I'm going to need a back brace if I am to survive the week, though. Anyone use an off the shelf brace? (like from the sporting goods store, pharmacy, home depot, whatever?). My wife, who I should probably just consider an expert on this after three spinal surgery, has said that a custom fitted brace, essentially prescribed by a doctor, is the only way to go. Apparently she complains the off the shelf ones ride up, slip around and generally don't stay where/how they're supposed to be. I'm not sure I want to spend the time and money seeing a specialist and getting a brace fitted when I'm hoping this is a short term injury. Anyone have any positive experiences using a brace?

||I know the obvious answer is yes when it comes to new boards, but looking for some advice. My uncle just won a brand new 157 Rome Flag (wide version of Anthem, if I'm reading correctly). He's a hardcore skier and has no interesting in boarding, so he's looking to sell the board, brand new, in wrapper, and here I am debating if I want it.... My current quiver is: --Never Summer System 161/Cartels: 1st board, and my current "all mountain" stick (you know, as much as New England resorts can be considered all mountain) --Burton Hero 155/Triads: Will probably be my goof off/freestyle board. Haven't had enough time on it to get a real feel for it. --Sierra Crew 157/binderless: This had my triads until I traded for the Hero. Will likely be my early/late season board and loaner. Anyone know much about the Flag/Anthem? I'm hearing some compare it to the Custom, and others to the Custom X.... I'm not sure it's my style board, or how it'll compare to what I already have (ie, whether it actually has a place in my quiver)

||I found the camp I'm going to this summer... BACONCAMP!!! All proceeds go to the American Heart Association!

||Just noticed this new banner next to some reviews on a product page. I assume it's new, but not sure what it's telling me. Is it confirmation that said product was ordered from Sierra?

||Do the VZ feenoms come with 2 lenses, or is that just "creative license" in the product picture? If it is two lenses, what is the 2nd lens?
