We All Know Real Ninjas Walk in Silence…

But who said anything about gaudy belt buckles?

And I would have remained silent if I thought some of you out there weren’t that ninja-ish. But alas, you are, and I have therefore chosen to inform you of one of the greatest revelations of the tech world: The tackiness of the LED belt buckle can be surpassed!

And it has, in the Egokast Video Belt Buckle, a video and music player that can playback MP3s, MPEG4s and AVIs, storing clips on a MiniSD card.

About $300, payable through Paypal.

Budapests Everywhere

Watch your chain and watch your HD raw footage while abroad. BBC sent their master tapes to Hungary for editing at Tiger Aspect Productions and ninjas swiped that plastic and are now demanding a respectable ransom.

Make it Interesting

If you’re having trouble finding that krush groove it might take a little extra spice. Count Bass D bangs on his akai with mallets.

Already having introduced to mnp the music box and shape of song interpretations of what sound is- we add another to the list- what sound looks like in a bucket of cornstarch.

NYTimes reporter checking out the coffeeshop scene in Holland - my ninja!

NYTimes columnist John Tierney, one of the paper’s more conservative writers on the Op-Ed page, penned a piece this weekend criticizing America’s policy towards marijuana and extolling the benefits of the drug laws in the Netherlands.AA For those who have read a bit on the folly of drug prohibition, or have just thought about the problem, the contents of the article will not be earth-shattering, although it does contain some interesting anectdotes.AA Nonetheless, it is refreshing to see such views in the mainstream press (which of course will inevitably lead to a flurry of comments from Fox "News" et al. that the NY Times is a radical left-wing newspaper, which is obviously true since the New York Times feverishly repeated all of the lies of the Bush administration before the War in Iraq, and delayed revealing the unconstitutional NSA spying program until after the 2004 presidential election…)

Not surprisingly, Mr. Tierney is mum as to whether or not he sampled any of the botanicals from the Green House or the other shops he visited.AA At least he didn’t try to claim he only stopped in at Barney’s for the food (make sure to check it out, both for grub and ganj, next time you are in A-Dam)
If you are a NYTimes or Times Select subscriber, you can view the article here

Doctors Can Be Ninjas, Too…


Ya don’t believe me? Well peep this list of slang expressions and acronyms used exclusively by doctors.

Be careful if you’re diagnosed with neuro-faecal syndrome - you might have guessed, but the doctor’s saying you’ve got shit for brains. A DFO’s doesn’t sound tooo bad though, the "Drunk and Fell Over." What do you think they call genital warts after you leave the clinic? Brothel sprouts!

Those ninja doctors can be real funny girls and guys…

Peep the full list
