"Why are you trashing my scene? You are trashing my scene!"

It's not lupus!

I've watched this four times already, and I can't stop laughing...

Bold claims... Bold, stupid claims

One of the recent Mac commercials (above) have a woman searching for a computer "that works without crashing, or viruses, or a ton of headaches." PC then leaves, leaving the woman to Mac. It's Apple's response to the recent "laptop hunters" commercials by Microsoft.

As if the Mac never crashes... Anyone rushing out to buy a Mac thinking that they'll never had to deal with crashes or headaches are in for a rude awakening. And even though they are rare, Macs also have viruses. So Apple marketing, you're 0 for 3. WTF were you thinking?

I guess for those who hail Apple as the second coming would simply ignore the fact that the Mac crashes just like every other OS, because in their eyes, the might Steve Jobs would never steer them wrong. And iPhones have absolutely no glitches or problems at all.

The sad fact is that... every computer crashes, 'cause every OS sucks.

The Book of Love

On the (possibly series) finale of Scrubs, this song was used near the end, as J.D. fantasizes about what may happen in the future. Both the song and the montage of possible future outcome of these characters are very sweet and touching. I bet most fans got teary-eyed. I know J.D. would have.

As it is, since Zach Braff is leaving the show, and most of the show was told through his character's perspective, there's no way it would remain the same. If the show does get renewed, it will certainly be interesting to see what direction the show takes.

...and here's the clip from the show itself.

Pepsi Throwback

You may have noticed the recent Pepsi commercials where they're now selling the "Throwback" version, made with "natural sugar," and with the older (original?) Pepsi formula.

So, what's the big deal? Well, for years now, Pepsi (along with many other major soft drink brands) have been sweetening their drinks with high fructose corn syrup, instead of regular sugar. It is the belief of many that drinks made with sugar, instead of high fructose corn syrup, taste better.

As you can see, the current version of Pepsi is made with:
  • Carbonated water
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Caramel Color
  • Sugar
  • Phosphoric acid
  • Caffeine
  • Citric acid
  • Natural flavor
It actually does still have regular sugar in it, but obviously not as much as high fructose corn syrup.

Since it's been ages since I've had Pepsi that's not made with high fructose corn syrup, I don't remember what the "original" Pepsi tastes like, and I'm certainly curious to see if I'd like the "original" better.

Pepsi Throwback is made with:
  • Carbonated water
  • Sugar
  • Caramel color
  • Phosphoric acid
  • Caffeine
  • Natural flavor
Now, when they say "natural sugar" in the commercial, they mean beet and cane sugar. So aside from using all sugar instead of any high fructose corn syrup, Pepsi Throwback is also missing citric acid.

So, how is it? Well, it has a "cleaner" taste... there's no after taste. I sort of miss the subtle lemony flavor of the citric acid, but the other subtle taste that's there in its place is not bad, either. Overall, I like it, although it doesn't seem to be definitively better. I'll continue to buy Pepsi Throwback instead of regular Pepsi while it's available.

You're gonna love my nuts

Not that the original informercial wasn't funny enough already, with its ridiculous statements, such as:
  • "You're gonna be slapping your troubles away."
  • "Stop having a boring tuna. Stop having a boring life."
  • "We're gonna make America skinny again, one slap at a time."
  • "You're gonna love my nuts."
  • "You're gonna be slapping away everyday."
But anyway, enjoy.
