Bullet Sunday 47

Posted on Sunday, September 9th, 2007

Dave!It's Bullet Sunday under medication as I try to rid myself of the last vestiges of the plague I've been fighting off all week!

• Horrendously Awful... As a certified Apple Whore, the Microsoft Zune media player was always off my radar. It isn't Mac compatible, so I just didn't care. I said my peace on the matter and moved on. Apparently, so did the rest of the world, because Zune never made much of an impact against the iPod. But then today I actually got to play with a Zune. And the entire time I kept thinking to myself over and over again... "holy crap this is lame!" I could detail the entire horrifying experience of both Zune and the Zune Marketplace, but there's nothing to be said. It's just bad, and that's the end of it.

• But Not Really... Okay just one more thing about Zune. THIS WAS WHAT MICROSOFT THOUGHT WOULD BE AN iPOD KILLER?!? It's so craptastically bad that I can only guess it was crapped out of somebody's ass in an explosive case of diarrhea. It certainly looks as if that's the case...

Zune Ass

Microsoft has BILLIONS of dollars! But what good is it if they only spend $2.50 on research and development when they decide to enter a new market? NOTE TO MICROSOFT: SPEND THE FUCKING MONEY TO MAKE OBSCENELY AMAZING PRODUCTS!! Put in a billion-dollars and come up with a media player that has anti-gravity controls, a 400dpi 3-D screen, wireless power recharging, and folds to the size of a pack of gum! Otherwise, why bother? Why continue to release complete and total shit that isn't a leap ahead of what's already out there? For crying out loud, who is in charge over there at Redmond? If this is your answer to iPod, I can't wait to see your iPhone competition. Seriously, I could use a good laugh.

• MTV VMA... Am I the only one who thinks that it is ironic MTV would still hold a Video Music Award show when they so rarely play music videos anymore? I tuned in to see Britney perform, but she looked completely zoned out... as if she didn't know who she was or what she was doing there. Girl has bills to pay... she'd better get it together quick, or she won't have a music career left.

• Sam & Max... One of my most favorite comic books is Sam & Max: Freelance Police. One of my favorite video games is Sam & Max Hit The Road. One of my favorite cartoons is The Adventures of Sam & Max. My favorite web comic is the Eisner Award nominee Sam & Max. I'm pretty sure that one of my favorite online games would be Sam & Max too if it worked with Macintosh. It certainly looks like it would be totally awesome...

Sam and Max!

Anyways, the good news here is that Shout Factory has announced that the animated Sam & Max are getting a new 3-Disc Set on DVD! It's a few months out yet, and no release-date has been given, but the news has me totally psyched. All I need is a Mac or Wii version of the new Sam & Max games, and my life will be complete.

• Dietary Suckage... What do you eat when you have to eliminate hydrogenated oil, gluten, and high fructose corn syrup... plus limit dairy products to three servings a day? Apparently its a lot of fruit juices, frozen vegetables, and rice cakes. So far it hasn't solved any problems for me, but not eating after 7:00 each night has certainly been making me sleep better. Last night, for the first time in a very long time, I managed to sleep six hours uninterrupted. I guess you do what you gotta do in order to stay healthy, but I can't imagine living in a world where I can't have a slice of freshly baked bread smothered in butter along with chocolate pudding and a can of Coke. Oh well. One week left to go.

And now it's back to work. And not eating.

    I wish I had the discipline to eat the right stuff – meaning the stuff that carries a real benefit to your health and all. I have so much admiration for vegetarians, you wouldn’t believe. I know what is good and what isn’t but I just can’t help it…

    I gots to have me some pig, man.

    All there is to it.

    And what genius decided that turd-brown was the next cool color? They also call their feature of sharing music via WiFi “squirting”. Some joker made the whole thing a metaphor and everyone was too clueless to catch on.

  3. apricoco says:

    ouch no gluten? sugar? do you still get sugar? I couldn’t live without sugar. I do commend you for trying to eat healthier. I make an effort to eat 5-9 servings of fruit and veggies each day and I feel better for it. (but I still add sugar, I am not crazy)

    On the plus side I am glad to hear that you slept so well. Perhaps this experiment will get you on a normal sleep schedule and you can slowly start to work up to eating after 8.

    Good luck.

  4. Mooselet says:

    I’m going to have that image in my head for the rest of the day, and I’m not talking about Sam & Max. I’m a little grossed out now…

  5. Tracie says:

    Dave…. oh Dave. Your timing is so awesome. I just shamelessly stole your Bullet Sunday idea for my blog and of course let my readers know where I stole the idea from and linked here to blogography, and THAT is the picture you share with us today?? LOL .. Oi.

  6. Avitable says:

    I remember those old Sam & Max games fondly. The new chapters they’re doing are supposed to be pretty good, too.

  7. Dariush says:

    Dave, that is the most horrifying of the pictures I’ve ever seen on here. Dear God in heaven.

  8. Wayne says:

    Granted, it was an acquisition, but still Microsoft has some pretty cool things with it’s PhotoSynth and SeaDragon products.

  9. Nat says:

    I love Apple and their products. I even love the packaging. Seriously, it makes me want to buy an iBook even more.

    When did Britney have a career in music?

    ON the diet… no glutten eh? I have to do that next. Ack. Good luck.

  10. karla says:

    I feel sort of sorry for Britney. Poor kid is obviously in the worst throes of post partum depression, plus whatever else. Her managers should try to find a way to update her image and help her grow up and instead they let her go out and make a fool of herself.

    I’ve never been a big fan, but my heart goes out to her. Plus, I think they are way harder on women than they would be on a man in that situation… she is making bad choices, perhaps, but she is also very YOUNG and doesn’t she have managers who are supposed to help her?.

    Ok, I SO should not take cold meds because they obviously make me worry about things that really make no sense to worry about.

  11. Tracy Lynn says:

    That diet scares me. Glad you’re sleeping, though, because I worried about you turning into a zombie.

  12. diane says:

    Are you fasting again, or this is another dietary change of some sort?

  13. Bre says:

    The zune is so boring – cheap imitations aren’t exiting, when will Microsoft get that?

  14. Hilly says:

    Wait – you took it up the ass from David Caruso?

  15. Dave2 says:

    Me and everybody else who has ever seen him “act.”

  16. Carl says:

    Awesome Dave. Nice choice of color for the ass cheek. I might go regurgitate my hamburger I just ate now. No seriously, if I could draw as good as you, I’d draw diareah too.
