Update: Stand down everyone, Twitter simply lost the tweet then restored it!
A few minutes ago, Android chief Andy Rubin sent out his 6th tweet. A milestone. Never mind that they’re all self-serving promotion with Rubin never responding to anything or really giving anything in the…
My friend Mark compiled a great list of music blogs on Tumblr and we’ve seen this list grow steadily in the past weeks. It has become great resource to discover new music tumblelogs to follow so I decided to do something similar:

Starting right now, you can pre-order your very own copy of On The Bro’d. Unlike this chump of a blog that just has some lame-ass excerpts, the book version of On The Bro’d contains the entirety of Kerouac’s On The Road translated into off-the-chain, crunk-as-hell bro-speak.
Shit drops in April, bros.

Air Canada flight grounded after Ripples the cat escapes and hides in cockpit
There are plenty of things that can delay a flight – bad weather, ground delays, mechanical issues – but a cat getting loose and hiding somewhere in the cockpit normally isn’t one of them.
However, that’s what happened to Air Canada flight 603 from Halifax to Toronto on Wednesday morning.
The flight, which was scheduled to take off at 5:40 a.m., was delayed for four hours after Ripples the cat — brought on board by one of the plane’s passengers — got loose from its carrier and hid inside the plane’s cockpit.
“They were of course first looking [for Ripples] in the cabin, as I understand it. Then it became apparent that it had gone into the cockpit,” says Peter Spurway, vice-president of corporate communications for the Halifax Airport Authority.
“Then it squirmed down into a little space and the game was on.” (Photo: Said Khatib/AFP/Getty Images)

I know other movie geeks are going to have disagreements and that’s fine. And yes, I know some of these movies went more than 3 sequels, but none were ever meant to.
These are rated purely on my enjoyment level of each film and nothing else. Frankly, I’m surprised by how many sequels were better than the original. And I’m not surprised that the 3rd movie is never the best.
