Nikon's New Weapon

I'm generally a Canon fan in the general Canon vs Nikon wars, but the new buzz from multiple sources about the new Nikon D90 which has received critical praise for new advancements in camera technology.

The biggest feature that distinguishes this SLR from anything else has to be the D-Movie Mode, which records at 720p HD (1280 x 720 pixels) in Motion JPEG format.
It also has matching features from existing current-gen SLR technology such as decreased noise with ISOs up to 3200, 12.3MP CMOS sensor, built-in sensor cleaning, and a top-speed of 4.5FPS continuous shooting.
The camera shoots in SD/SDHC and the lens system mounts with a wide-range of existing Nikon AF-S lenses.

I'm thinking I need to jump ship! The video feature alone makes this camera one-of-a-kind Digital SLR with video support.

Yummy Italian Style Lunch

I'm back from Alaska! I'll save that post for the next one once I get my pictures uploaded.

I'm sitting here having a really yummy lunch. I'm eating a Chicken Alfredo Rotini (mmmm creamy pasta) paired with an Italian "Sparking Blood Orange Beverage". I can't find a picture or a description of the product online, and I'm kinda surprised that not every product has been documented online yet. It's a refreshing orange drink that has a very dark flavor that's usually tasted more in dark red fruits like cranberry juice. It's name is Italissima Aranciata Rossa. Definitely something new to try!

False Anticipation

Police cruisers arrive with sirens blaring at the corner across from the window in the office. Two cruisers and an unmarked minivan stop in the middle of the street blocking traffic.

Oh boy oh boy. Something is going down? Unfortunately not... They went into a store and came back out after a few minutes. I thought there was going to be someone major action going down, but nothing happened.

An interesting poem

I haven't really read much poetry lately. I left most of that behind a couple of years ago. I was rifling through some pages of a poetry book in my room and I found this boggling piece.

The meaning behind this poem still eludes me.
