Technology has become increasingly expendable.

Remember the days when old grandma would watch Wheel of Fortune with you on her busted up TV from the '70's? What ever happened to keeping stuff until it dies on you? Nowadays, everything we use has a shelf life of 2 years or less.

My macbook battery died after 304 cycles. I bought it in 2006. It's only been two years since I bought this laptop, and the power cord has already burnt out [I bought another one], the battery died [I bought another one], and there's a new operating system available [I'm not buying it]. Who do you think is to blame for all of this lack of appreciation for old stuff?

I think technology is growing at an increasingly quicker rate each year. Last year, 4GB MicroSD cards were HUGE. Before that, 1GB MicroSD cards were. Before that, there were SD cards. DOES ANYONE EVEN REMEMBER THE ZIP DRIVE FROM THE YEAR 2000? It's scary how quickly technology has grown and how much we forget. So, when you think about buying a new phone after only two years of use, remember that old person who still uses her landline dialer from 1986.

Stop Smoking While Walking!

Okay, we need a rule like this in the city.

For some reason, more people have been infecting my lungs with smog in the last month than ever before. Do people have no regard for anyone else? Why is it that no one complains about this horrible thing? When I'm walking, I don't want to smell tobacco and feel sick. I want to breathe the fresh car fumes and acid rain the city is known for.

Smokers, please stand in place and smoke.



In other news, the 2 train service has been slightly better than it was last year at this time. I've experienced two delays this month and still managed to get to school on time. Hopefully the MTA will step up some more and stop hating on the Bronx.

The T-Mobile Android phone is slowly approaching, and I AM WAITING PATIENTLY! I'm EXCITED! Here's the invite:

I wish we here at BAPie were invited. We can all dream, no? That's a joke for all us Android insiders.

Well, I'm going to go be excited about free ice cream at Tasti D Lite. PEACE!

Fall in Love with Shoes

It's shopping season as everyone prepares for the fall and winter! Due to the summer-like weather in September, this may be the last time this year those precious sandals see the light of day.
Here are some shoes I've seen online that I particularly like.

Quisa 01 Burn Pu Heel

These shoes are very simple, and the burnt mustard color is matchable with many colors.

Quisa 01 Red Heel

These are the same as above, but in a much flirtier color. Red kitten heels spice up the basic jeans-and-t-shirt combination.

Gabriella Rocha 1485 Fabia

With its small point and low heel, these shoes are very simple, comfortable, and subtly sexy.

Made by Elves Lennon Leather Skimmer

These shoes, like the Quisa 01 shoes, go well with many combinations. They are also cute and flat, which makes walking easy.

Bandana Bandit

These shoes are sexy and cute, as well as easy to walk in. They are very unique as well.


Sadly, these are available only in men's sizes, but hopefully as the rise of the Winklepicker continues to gain momentum, women's sizes will appear. The buckled ones are the cutest and give a simple dress a very tough feel.

That's all for now! Enjoy your week and have a nice day.

Stand clear of the closing doors,
