My Man Bags

I went on an online shopping spree earlier this week and bought some Man bags for myself. I only bought 2, but from the set below, I'm showing 2 because I ordered the one on the left (the more green/olive color), but I received the one on the right (brownish/dark-green). At first I was going to send it back, but I grew attached to the color and didn't want to go through the hassle of sending it back. This one is for when I want to pack my laptop to go.

Now, for my remaining purchase I bought myself a "Jack Sack". It's basically the same man bag that Jack Bauer uses in 24. Can you believe someone actually has a blog (jacksack.blogspot.com) about it? Amazing. This one is for my general use, a book, magazines, some papers/folders, diffuse kits, and pens. You know, the regular stuff.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchases. These bags are nice and sturdy, and I'm ok with it getting a little dirty. I've been mostly using my Diesel bag, but it's a fake my sister bought me from Thailand and it's starting to wear down.

Code Monkey

Jonathan Coulton performs Code Monkey Unplugged. I love this song! It's just so amusing.


Code Monkey get up get coffee
Code Monkey go to job
have boring meeting with boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very diligent
but his output stink
his code not functional or elegant
what do Code Monkey think
Code Monkey think maybe manager oughta write goddamn login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy just proud

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you

Code Monkey hang around at front desk
tell you sweater look nice
Code Monkey offer buy you soda
bring you cup bring you ice
you say no thank you for the soda ’cause
soda make you fat
anyway you busy with the telephone
no time for chat

Code Monkey have long walk back to cubicle
he sit down pretend to work
Code Monkey not thinking so straight
Code Monkey not feeling so great

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you a lot

Code Monkey have every reason
to get out this place
Code Monkey just keep on working
to see your soft pretty face
Much rather wake up eat a coffee cake
Take bath, take nap
This job fulfilling in creative way
such a load of crap
Code Monkey think someday he have everything even pretty girl like you
Code Monkey just waiting for now
Code Monkey say someday, somehow

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you

NIN's Ghosts on Amazon MP3

Look what I'm downloading! Trent Reznor recently released his new album, NIN Ghosts online. You can either buy it or download some of it for free, or "free". I chose to buy it because I think he's a step in the right direction for artists to take and build a closer relationship with fans and would-be-fans; basically cutting out the middle-man. Now here's an artist worth supporting.

Some good reads:
