Here’s an attempt to start up a new regular posting called the “Friday Music Confessional.”

I’ve heard this guy Cee Lo Green’s music for a while. After his song “Forget You” (the non-explict version of his song “F*#($* You”) was performed by Gweneth Paltrow on GLEE, it seemed to blow up everywhere. I don’t think I get through a day without hearing this song on the radio. Now he’s part of that show “The Voice” with some other talented music artists.

So… I have a confession to make. Though I’ve seen a video of Gnarles Barkley’s song “Crazy”, I didn’t realize that they were the same person, and thought “Gnarles Barkley” was a real person. I had no clue it was some duo, and thought, “Heh, Cee-Lo sounds a lot like that “Crazy” singer…“

… Yes, I can be completely oblivious to the obvious.

Check it! My wife and I are on the videos for every TiVo Premiere box being shipped in the country (maybe even the world)!

No, we’re not models or actors like my gaming buddies Rick Malambri or his wife Lisa Malambri, but this opportunity presented itself as more of a happen stance. My wife Joyce has an old high school friend who has been working at TiVo for some time now in the Marketing and QA departments. Being that TiVo is based in the Bay Area, there’s been a couple of times that her friend has been asked to find people to do some in person focus group style sessions. I initially attended one of these after being a long time TiVo subscriber with Direct TV (this was back when Direct TV still had TiVo boxes leased through their company).

A few months later, TiVo was looking for a

I’m not one normally that into sports, though I do follow most of the NBA and the Lakers (not really a band wagoner, my wife is from LA, so I have a reason to like em. =P). Here’s my prediction for the 2011 NBA Playoffs. We’ll see how accurate I am come June! Here’s to a great NBA Playoffs and to the Lakers 3rd Three-peat attempt!

So I got my Gmail account back in 2004 (6/23/2004) when it was still in the Invite only Beta stages. It’s been close to 7 years with a total of over 100,000 emails in my “All” folder. Google’s been constantly giving more and more room to Gmail users (Starting at 1Gb, jumping to 2Gb, and has still blossomed to the 7.569Gb I have today), yet I’m already using 61% of that space!

I looked back to some older entries where I discussed the amount of space and got these stats:

So it really looks like I only have 2 1/2 years until my Gmail box will be full. Sadness.

History of the Onza:

So it’s been nearly a year from the first announcement of Razer‘s entrance into the console gaming market with two new peripherals for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. At CES 2010, they announced (and had a working demo unit) of the Onza controller, and a 5.1 surround sound headset named the Chimera.

Both their products kept getting pushed back, and it wasn’t until January 2011 that they allowed pre-orders for the Onza (while the Chimera is still on hold). Razer did expand both lines a bit further to include two versions of each product. For the Onza, there’s a Tournament Edition with a few more features (adjustable tension sticks, braided cable, rubberized surface) than the Standard Edition. The Chimera was also expanded to have a 5.1 system over a 5.8Ghz band and a standard stereo system over 2.4Ghz.

There’s been much talk on the ASTRO
