The Fast and the Furious 3

Posted by Mark

Just yesterday I was watching the Rides episode where they built a car for drifting and I was telling Nat how cool drifting is when today I read that the new Fast and the Furious will be based on drifting. Neither Vin Diesel (who co-starred in the first film, but not the second) nor Paul Walker (who co-starred in both) will appear in the new movie which is scheduled to begin filming this fall. [Link]

On a side note, the show Top Gear is currently showing on the Discovery Channel in the States. Hope they come to Showtime also. At the moment you can watch Top Gear every Sunday at 1PM on BBC.

Inner Space

WOW, this is unbelievable… an artist swallowed a pill-sized camera that photographically auto-documented its journey through his body, taking 65,000 photographs in seven and a half hours. The picures are stunning! [Link]

Michael Jackson in Bahrain

Posted by Mark

Pop star Michael Jackson began a vacation at a prince’s palace in the tiny Gulf kingdom of Bahrain, his first trip overseas after being acquitted of child molestation charges, an official close to the royal circle said Thursday.

Jackson arrived with his three children on a private plane from Europe on Wednesday night for an indefinite stay, said an official. Jackson was found not guilty of child molestation in a California court on June 13.

He chose Bahrain because of his brother Jermaine’s first hand experience visiting the kingdom, the official said. “He’s come here to retreat and relax and enjoy the calmness of Bahrain,” the official said, adding that no other member of the Jackson family accompanied the pop star.

Another official said Jackson was a guest of Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the king’s son, in one of the royal palaces. Sheikh Abdullah, believed to be in his early 30s, is a friend of Jackson’s brother Jermaine. He described the visit as “very very private.” Jermaine Jackson has close links with Bahrain’s royal circle. In January, he and Sheikh Abdullah announced plans to launch a charity theme song written by the royal.

Proxify Blocked Sites

Posted by Mark

I hate it when I try to visit a site and its blocked. It doesn’t have to be porn, sometimes regular sites are blocked for no reason! This is why yesterday I signed up for Proxify. For $20 every 6 months I can access any site I want without worrying if its blocked or not. You can try it out for free but I think 20$ for 6 months is a very good deal. Incase Proxify.com gets blocked they have other secret urls you could use. Try it out. [Link]

A9 Maps

Posted by Mark

A9.com has done a minor cleanup to their starting page, they also fixed up their Maps page. While maps.google.com shows you satellite images of countries, maps.a9.com is pictures from the ground of store fronts. Of course not all the cities are available and its only US cities but its still really cool. Using maps.a9 I was able to show Nat every shop I passed by when I was in New York on vacation. Shops which I had forgotten their names I was able to find by maps.a9. Try it out. [Link]
