New ultimate goal: acquire Irish Wolf Hound.

Edit: Scratch that, acquire six Irish Wolf Hounds, name them after the Road Rovers.
Remember our bargain, wizard.

Ultimate Goal: Acquire Irish wolf hound and genetically engineer it to be ride-able by a 6'6" 250# human being.

Okay, time for another real product review:

Product: Dole Single Serving Strawberry KiwiJuice Blend
Place of purchase: Panda Express
Price: $1.75
Rating: Image ImageImageImageImage
Review: BLEH! I don't know where to start complaining. First off, It's called "Strawberry Kiwi Blend" and what is the first juice ingredient? Not Strawberry as the name suggests, but Apple! Then surly Strawberry should be at least second right? WRONG! Strawberry doesn't make an appearance until the 6th ingredient, 4th fruit juice - there's still Pineapple and Grape in front of it and the ever mysterious "Natural Flavors". Well you know what Dole? I CAN MAKE NATURAL FLAVORS TOO! HERE, HAVE A URINE SAMPLE - IT'S ALL NATURAL!

Coincidentally, that's what it tasted like...well, not exactly(I don't know what urine tastes like, and I don't plan on finding out), but it was pretty gross. Watered down Apple/Pineapple/Grape/Strawberry/Kiwi juice. Think about that for a minute...okay, no more thinking you already know that those flavors should not mix well - and they don't.

OH! And how could I forget: in big bold type on the front it says "100% Juice" and what is ingredient numero uno? WATER! At least it wasn't high fructose corn syrup, which I guess is why it's "100% juice".

And one last point: The bottle is 15.2 ounces, a serving size is 8 ounces, and yet there are a claimed 2 serving's per container, not 1.9 servings(do the math, it actually is exactly 10% less then 2 servings). But I have to give credit to Dole for not lieing about the Nutrition facts. Since it gives facts for 1 serving and whole bottle("2" servings) it says that 1 serving has 100% Vitamin C and 2 has 190% Vitamin C, which co-ordinates with that actual amount you get in a bottle.

In the end, I was definitely not satisfied, but it did quench my thirst. It's not the worst drink I've had(that was drinking fountain water AND paid water from Six Flags Magic Mountain) I won't give it a 1 star, but I don't think it was quite deserving of a 2 star.

...I've never tried this stuff, and thanks to your review and the fact that it's probably not available in the UK I almost certainly will. Hooray for product reviews?

EDIT, much much later: I'm pretty sure there was supposed to be a small, unimportant word like "never" in there somewhere. "...I almost certainly never will"

Dava Grip Tips guitar picks.

Rating 4/5

A really nice pick. Nylon overmolded with rubber gives a thick tip with more flexibility than a regular pick. Excellent grip. Probably the only pick that doesn't tend to spin between my fingers. I could find only one thickness, it was around equal to a .70mm in flexibility. A good all around thickness, but not my particular favorite. The Rubber overmold seemed to come to close to the tip, at times when picking I would strike the rubber and it would sound and feel kinda funky and throw me off a little. Other than that it's worth at least a try.

Just downloaded Trillian Astra Beta, I'll report back in about a week to let you know how it's going for me. So far pretty damn nice, I might actually buy it this time around...

Sennheiser HD 202 Headphones
ImageImageImageImageImage

They were on sale at Amazon a while ago, and my dad bought five for $25.00 each. They are ridiculously good - or maybe that's just me, since I've only used earbuds before. They block out almost all outside noise (even when they're off), but you're not left completely deaf. The quality of the sound is something laptops, radios, and earbuds (least of all earbuds) have never achieved. I listened to some classical music in a test run, and it was like I was standing beside the conductor - in front of the orchestra, and right next to the piano. Haven't tried them with non-classical music yet, but I heard that a loud thumping bass won't work out because the treble and bass are balanced too well. Sound clarity is excellent (given the recording, I guess). They're very light, so it's almost as if I'm not wearing them. Really fantastic headphones.

The Sennheiser are awesome headphones. If I had the money, I'd buy some of those noise cancelling Bose ones, though :shock:
Except that when I say "If I had the money", these are the kind of headphones where they offer a "Buy now, pay in instalments" credit scheme. So, I am not likely to have that kind of money anytime soon.
