Those Smileys are so 2006:

It's funny that one day I'll see these gif's and think, "Ha, I remember when my mom sent me emails in college with that Incredimail program and these were attached to each one!"

Keith Jones: Blocks and Machines


I was just looking at the different Giant Robotstore websites, looking for art to buy, and I came across this guy at the GRNY site. I love it so much, too bad there 500 dollars a piece. They remind me of children's books I used to look at. So.....CHECK IT OUT!

For some reason I decided to "check for purchases" on iTunes today (it's under Advanced). Turns out I had a track that I bought (well not bought, remember the pepsi caps? I drank a lot of pepsi), but never downloaded the song.

So, now I have "Jesus the Mexican Boy" by Iron and Wine. It's okay. I remember buying it though. I was sitting out in the lobby at Washtenaw Community College during my Recording 2 class (by the way, my teacher for that class just got a job to make beats in Kanye West's studio). Wow, March 2004, I was still in high school. I miss high school.

P.S. If you came to the NHS show last night. Thanks! It was fun, Todd, Anthony, George, Karen, Lindsay, Anne, Sam, Cigar-Guy and Girl, Stinky-guy who was super into it, and blue shirt guy.

Jan Kmenta: Elements of Econometrics

I washed the windows of a semi-famous author today. He's a professor at the UofM. I realized he must have wrote the book when I saw 10 copies on a bookshelf and a giant cardboard box version in the basement. His book is on Amazon.


According to the review it's a classic:

This classic text has proven its worth in university classrooms and as a tool kit in research--selling over 40,000 copies in the United States and abroad in its first edition alone. Users have included undergraduate and graduate students of economics and business, and students and researchers in political science, sociology, and other fields where regression models and their extensions are relevant. The book has also served as a handy reference in the "real world" for people who need a clear and accurate explanation of techniques that are used in empirical research.
Throughout the book the emphasis is on simplification whenever possible, assuming the readers know college algebra and basic calculus. Jan Kmenta explains all methods within the simplest framework, and generalizations are presented as logical extensions of simple cases. And while a relatively high degree of rigor is preserved, every conflict between rigor and clarity is resolved in favor of the latter. Apart from its clear exposition, the book's strength lies in emphasizing the basic ideas rather than just presenting formulas to learn and rules to apply.

Here is a review for milk, i hope (and sort of think) it's a joke

A wonderful gift, August 3, 2006
Reviewer: A. Liebling (Long Island City, NY United States) - See all my reviews

Go ahead and buy milk from the store and try giving it as a present - your girlfriend will see the shape and know right away. There's no surprise. But Amazon gift wraps and puts it into a nondescript box. You could really brighten someone's day with an unexpected gallon of milk. Isn't there someone you care about? Don't you think it's about time you sent them a gallon of milk?
