A Few Goodies

There are a few little things I thought I'd write about today. None of which really merit their own post, so bear with me.

Facebook
Apparently, Myspace is totally last week. The kids today are all over Facebook and I can kinda see why. As far as basic setups go, Facebook is kinda like Myspace except without all the ads and crap. I probably have around 500 Myspace friends and I might talk to three of them. Whereas on Facebook I might only have 20 friends, but I would actually want to keep in contact with all of them.

Internet Talk Radio
I hate real talk radio, but for some reason I've been listening to a lot of internet talk radio recently. So far my attention has been split between two programs on very opposite sides of the content spectrum. NPR, which takes a very intelligent and informative aproach to internet talk radio and DEADPIT.COM which is essentially just the rantings of two Kentucky based horror fanatics.

Ecto-1
One of my childhood obsessions is up for sale. According to various internet news sources, one of the cars used in the original Ghostbusters movie is up for sale. The price tag on this must-own vehicle is only $150,000, which is a bargain when you consider the fact that the lights and siren still work.

You should totally buy the Ghostbusters car! You could drive it in parades.... or turn the siren on and drive around in the middle of the night... no one would find out who it was ;-)

The local ambulance/funeral home company in Baddeck (yeah, conflict of interests... I noticed that when I was 9) used to enter an old ambulance (or was it a white hearse?) that looked just like that car in the Canada Day parade every year. And they'd have guys dressed up, wearing super-soaker backpacks, squirting the crowds. Lesson? You don't need to pay the big bucks... just get a hearse and paint it white. Fun times. And Facebook is great, but you never know when someone random from your past will just show up... sketch, methinks, very sketch.

If Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd haven't sat in the car, then it isn't for me.
