Super Bowl Sunday And I Don’t Care

Despite the title of this post, this article will have nothing to do with the super bowl. I just couldn’t think of anything.

Today Kim, Sawyer and I will be going to my mother-in-law’s house to spend the day.. but right now I have time to post because Kim is out shipping with my mom. A little Dustin time is something that I rarely get these days, so I’ll try and make the most of it. This morning I was catching up on some news and read an article about the Social Graph API. Very cool stuff, so I ran and updated a bunch of links to see what will happen.

Last weekend Kim and I painted the living room, downstairs hallway and stairwell a peach beige color, which came out really good! There were a few problem spots above the stairs where I can’t reach, so I’m going to ignore them for now. Next weekend (maybe) we’ll paint the kitchen a “straw hat” color. We’ve been here over four years and the walls really needed a paint job.

I’m also attempting to kill all the snails in our aquarium with some drops I bought from the pet store yesterday. Over the past month or two a few stowaways from the last time we bought fish have reproduced into an infestation. In the beginning we just tried scooping them out with a net and flushing them, but lately it has become clear that we can never keep up with that.

Yesterday evening I went to go see Cloverfield with my friend Mike. I have to say that I think that it was a great movie. I won’t ruin the ending, but I love movies that end that way.

The only other thing that I can think of to post today is that I don’t want to forget how to prepare movies for my ipod nano 3g:

 $ mencoder -oac faac -faacopts br=160 \
   -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=libx264 -vf scale=320:240 \
   -sub "subtitle.srt" \
   input.avi \
   -o output.avi

$ ffmpeg -i output.avi -acodec libfaac -ac 2 output.mov

Oh! And Sawyer is totally getting a haircut this week.. well hopefully.. Kim and I have to stop putting it off.
