Yesterday was Apple‘s “Let’s Rock” event. A new iPod Nano? A reduction in options for iPod Classic? An updated iTunes? That’s it? Yaaaaaawn.
Now That’s What I Call Networking
I’ve been to many meet-ups in this town, many of which have produced nothing. Last night my friend Maigh orchestrated a great time at the Cypress Street Pint & Plate for the inaugural Atlanta Tweet-Up. I met many people that I would not have otherwise, and in the process was introduced to a few Twitterers who also live in East Atlanta.
The Cypress Street Pint & Plate (horrible name imho) is in one of those locations that you think would never fail, but in the past has hosted more than one failed restaurant venture. Perhaps it’s the lack of parking? Perhaps the proprietors had not struck the proper food/price balance for the neighborhood? Beats me. I had a near-handful of Sweetwater 420’s along with samplings of some half-priced (before 7pm) appetizers — french fries, onion rings, cheese dip, hot wings. Of the appetizers I tasted the wings and onion rings were the clear winners. And be forewarned, not only is it really easy to miss the parking garage best suited for parking for going there, it also cost me $5 (aka one Beer Unit) to get out of it.
It’s JalapeñoBeach FTW!
I finally decided that my new “brand” for all of my photography concerns shall be Jalapeño Beach. It makes sense that I should start re-branding myself for my photographic work since soon I’ll be receiving business cards pointing people to my photoblog at Jalapeño Beach (look at me drop in the self-promotion). Soon, you will also be able to check out and perhaps purchase my work at Red Bubble under the user name…. JalapenoBeach.
Next up: getting someone to create a logo. Then, all I need to do is take quality photographs…

Last Saturday I visited the Roosevelt Little White House in Warm Springs, Georgia. I thought that there would be a lot to shoot, but instead this is all I came away with.
In case you are wondering, that really is sixty-year-old toilet paper.
Netflix Must Love Me Right Now
Not only have I not watched a movie in over a month, I’ve yet to give up on the ones (whose titles I can’t recall) that I have at home. Therefore Netflix has had to do absolutely nothing to earn my monthly subscription. Not that’s a business model I completely understand.
I’ve yet to completely catch up on my mail since returning home. It’s not like there was a huge Santa Claus sized bag waiting for my return, but for one reason or another it has taken the lowest priority on my list of chores. I wonder how much it would cost to hire an assistant?
Half Minds With Sharp Knives
No, this is not about former-Top Chef cheftestant Richard Blais leaving the Atlanta restaurant HOME. Instead, this is about the meeting of the minds tonight at George’s that will occur between Niplets, Little Easy, and yours truly. We three will be cooking up a mess this Saturday night for the annual Lake Hartwell Black Sheep Hash “campout”. I’ve helped out in the past so I’m not concerned whether or not we can pull it off, but I want to find out what we’ll be serving up.
And who knows, if the weather is not complete shit I’ll even get a run in beforehand.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…

Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Rapture — “No Sex For ben”
Website Of The Day – One of the Twitter Followers/Following I finally met IRL is Evan LaPointe who has a thought-provoking called There Are Two Types Of People In This World. And don’t worry, it has nothing to do with binary numbers (you know that joke if you are a geek like me).
