Cheap Magazine Subscriptions.

Google Checkout is offering $10 off a minimum $10 purchase from a bunch of vendors including and until December 31, 2006. I like the deal at because you can apply it to comic book subscriptions. The cheapest you'll pay for a Marvel subscription is $20 from the website, but with the $10 off from Google Checkout at, you can get a subscription for $14 or less. Not too shabby.

The catch is you are only supposed to be able to use it if you are new to Google Checkout. This means you have to use a new Google account and a different credit card than what you may have already registered with Google Checkout. Getting another Gmail account is no big deal and most people have more than one credit card, so this shouldn't be much of a problem. I wonder, can you register debit cards with Google Checkout too?

To The Spidey Fans.

This is my first attempt at a desktop background. It's 1024 x 768 pixels. Just click the image and "save as", then set the image as the background.

Also, here's Eddie Brock turning into Venom in Spiderman 3.

The Birmingham International Auto Show.

Yesterday, Becky and I went to the Birmingham International Auto Show. I've been to the one in Detroit and the Birmingham version is minuscule in comparison. It's still pretty neat though. The concept cars are always fun to look at and since there are far fewer people at the Birmingham Auto Show, you don't have to wait long to sit in the car of your choice. When I used to go to the show in Detroit, my friends and I would have a contest to see who could be the first to find the car where they forgot to disable the horn (there always seemed to be at least one). There always seems to be one at the Birmingham show as well. Becky frowns upon that little ritual, so I didn't try to hard to find it, though I did hear the horn from time to time. Also, Becky ended up "winning" a Nalgene-style bottle from the people in the Suzuki area. She was pretty happy about that.

Here are some pictures from our day.

This is a Chevy concept car.

Becky is testing out the seat in a Mitsubishi.

ALWAYS keep your eyes on the road, even when dealing with paparazzi.

Ever since I was a kid, I've always wondered why no one ever made a car entirely out of chrome, since people like it so much. Well, this it what it would look like.

That kid holding onto the chain is as shocked as I was that someone finally decided to make an all chrome car.

This looks like a concept car, but the sticker in the windshield means it isn't.

That was the leather seat, I swear.

...or was it?

The coolest dune buggy I've seen so far.

What A Day.

Man, I woke up this morning and it felt a little like Christmas. I finished another draft of a paper that I'm going to try to get published. I finished it last night and sent it to my adviser to read over. That lifted a huge weight off my shoulders and I slept pretty good last night. Then, this morning, I turn on the news and hear that the Democrats have taken the House and could take the Senate as well. Wow. Let's see if they actually make some worthwhile changes. To top it all off though, Donald Rumsfeld is quitting! It's about friggin' time. I hope his replacement is at least slightly better.

Better than all that though, it's currently sunny and 65 degrees here. Nice.

Did You?

By the way, Election Day is probably one of the most important days in the U.S., so why don't we get this day off? How many people (and what demographic) can afford to take off on a Tuesday?
