>Look Good Dying

>Real quick, this site lets you create covers for your “smoke boxes” from any image on your computer. All it does it put the image on a template from which you can glue/tape together a cover. Now, if only I knew what these “smoke boxes” were. Perhaps European cigarettes are purchases separately from a container? Any ideas?

Nice. If I can’t keep my credit card in my pocket this will be my new computer come this fall. Perhaps I could sell my current Toshiba Tablet PC to help finance this…hmmm. Beautiful, small, light, and full of battery life (up to 6 hours!). 2 USB, 2 Firewire, PCMCIA…It has been and remains my estimate that this handtop/ultra-small laptop form factor will be the saving grace for the Tablet PC platform. If only us “tableteers” could get others to understand that Tablet PC’s reallly are the nifty and necessary things that you never thought you wanted or needed.

Seriously, everyone who has tried my Tablet, save one, and was skeptical ended up loving it. I think it’s just too hard for regular folks (read: non-pathologically tech-obsessed) to understand why they’d need or want a laptop with pen capabilities. It’s this dramatic change in the size of the computer that is gonna help people grasp that this is a whole new and desirable way to compute from now on. Vivre l’Handtop!

The “sheets” as they’re called over at Looroll make for some great wallpaper. I’ve been using ‘them’ for years to get wallpaper from and now, after a really long hiatus, ‘they’re’ back and have a sort of blog on the front page that gives out a new great wallpaper or wallpaper site every week. They’re not all serious and gloomy like the one above, there are some slick cartoon and illustration ones too.

This is desktop wallpaper, not the real stuff. If anyone knows of a good site to look at real wallpaper, I’d love to know it.

I know Larry King is one big suck-up but holy jeez check out his endorsement of “Bringin Down the House.” Ouch. What movies have you been watching, Mr. King???

Larry King,

Well kinda. But he does write a little update every once and a while (no RSS though, unfortunately for us more nerdly fans). The newest entry is only display in the main section. Notice his endorsement of Cabin Fever, one of the BEST movies of the last couple of years. Some of the funniest stuff I’ve ever seen is in that movie. No joke. Harr harr.

Speaking of funny, check out the super-wussy picture of Mitch on the front page. That’s not the smooth operator I saw this year.

And, oh yeah, that’s a real trivial pursuit card above. If you don’t get it, it’s the “Sports & Leisure” question that is of significance.

This David Lanham fellow does some very clean and pleasant digital art over at his site. Check out the Stop Please and Blob Attack wallpapers in the “Goodies” section of his site.

Edit: Apparently Mr. Lanham is a fellow UCF Alum. Crazy.
