Let's be honest here....I'm back!

Since I last posted, I have been traveling all over California and then started a new job. And I was afraid to post to my blog again because I had not done so for over 3 weeks. I winced at thinking that after all this time, I would write again and think that I could satisfy your needs. So I just didn't.

Then I started a new gig at Fox Reality Channel. That's right. I am helping to launch a new network that is all reality all the time. And let me tell you, this is on an accelerated schedule. But the people are great and the network seems like it'll succeed down the line.

Now let's get crazy with the cheeze whiz...or products as regular people call them.

Recently I did a gadget segment that will be on 'E! Summer Entertainment Guide'. In this segment I give you an overview of some of the hottest gadgets to have for the summer. And lemme tell ya, when you mention the network E! to these PR people, they return your call tout de suite. It was a complete change from what I used to deal with at G-snore. I mean G-bore. wait, it's G4. Hazaa!

Out of all the products I showed, I have to say my favorites are the Fugi FinePix Z1, the Adidas-1 microchip sneaker, and the TomTom GO 700. You need details? Then please, kind soul, read on for the Fugi FinePix Z1.

The Pugi FinePix Z1. Why, Chi-Lan, do you like this camera when Canon just came out with a 7.1 Powershot? Well put simply, Fugi sent me theirs to play with. You can't beat that with a riding crop smothered in peanut butter. But you can make a decent sandwich with it. The Zi comes in silvr or black. But honestly, the black is beautiful. The camera is the size of a deck of cards and packs 5.1 megapixels of picture punch. The Z1 isn't bad when it comes to pictures in low-light, which usually comeout noisier than a Pantera concert. But these are decent. And the 2.5" LCD screen actually adjusts brightness when you enter a low-light situation. For some reason, Fugi's decided that club hoppers NEED a decent 5.1 megapixel camera, and they will fill that void. Maybe they can also kick the doorman's ass for me when he charges me and my buddies $25 at the door. The camera comes out in June.

Oh, I have to go to work now. I am still writing for STUFF Magazine's gadget column and it is going very well. I love working at this new network. and I will write my other reviews soon. Like in less than 4 days, but as I have to do a shoot today, i must leave everybody again.

PS. Tomorrow is my birthday...

You really got it going on Chi-lan! Glad to see you back at blogging and doing really well with your new gigs. I like your "warped" sense of humor. Keep up the good reviews and hope to see you soon in your new jobs!

You guys are so incredibly supportive and kind. I love you and again, apologize for being gone for so long. It was out of shame, then regret, then I said 'shit sawg, throw it in the fuck-it bucket.' and I am back blogging. Know this, you may never get rid of me!!!! : ) and the fuck-it bucket is one of the best things to have at work. better than ice cream.

Finally. For a little while i was felling like i was the only one keeping the fait that you were just out and about having some good clean Chi-Lan fun....ok wow i just made the lamest phrase ever.

ANYWAY. Glad to see our favorite lady of the west coast is back and blogging her way into our hearts. I hope your trip across Cali was fun and that this reallity network takes off. And of course we all want July to come to so we can read your first tech article.

Now if people rememberly properly I promise Chi Lan flowers for V-day...however due to complications of the credit card...ie not having one, I was unable to get her any flowers :(. I would also like to send her flowers for her b-day as an apology however i still have no credit card so for right now all i can do is give her a heartfelt happy b-day. May this year find you with love in your life, money in your pocket, and the only tears in your eyes come from laughing to hard. Happy B-day girl ;).

PS still trying to make myself LA bound though gonna be sad i wont get to work with you :(

So Trent you read the blog of the Assasin.. and didn't like it.

Hey I like typing in Japanese too.
日本語は楽しみである。
However I want Chi to be able to read this.. and I believe she is ABC and doesn't read Chinese either.

該死的I 愛我的電腦。

Actually I am learning Bahasa Indonesian.
Saya gila bule.

Mooch Rex:

google "david sedaris rooster bucket" and see if that helps.

It's from a story he wrote about his brother called "You Can't Kill the Rooster". While I'm not really a big David Sedaris fan (I know, I am virtually alone in that regard), this is one of his best and funniest, esp. if you can get an audio clip of him reading it.

Mooch Rex said...

Thanks Boss of Sad, will do!
