Call for technical assistance by TechnoDolt™

Do any of my teched-out readers know if it's possible to put a YouTube video on endless replay, the way I can do with iTunes and my iPod when I want to hear a song a hundred or three times in a row?

I can't seem to find a setting to do it, though I did discover the new (to me, at least) feature that let me create a nifty border for the video up top.

As it is now, I have to keep hitting the "replay" button each time the song ends to play it again.

Annoying — it messes up my chi/flow/feng shui/inner rhythm.

And another thing: Jessica Simpson is more than a magazine cover girl/Tony Romo's main squeeze — the girl can sing.

Car/Bike Anti-Theft Device



From the website:

    Car/Bike Anti-Theft Device

    These rust and scratch stickers are designed to make your beautiful bike (or car) look rusted and scratched so that a passing thief assumes the vehicle is not worth stealing due to its apparent shabbyness.

    This anti-theft device is not guaranteed to work in any way.

    However, Dominic has stuck them to his shiny new red bike and can confirm that it hasn't been stolen yet.

Secret Code Wall Clock — Episode 2: Fire Sale


Back in November of last year when I featured it in Episode 1, this clock seemed just the thing for that special someone who has everything.

Guess not many people agreed with me or the company that was selling it 'cause they've now slashed the price 56% in an attempt to move 'em out.

From the website, once again:

    Secret Code Wall Clock

    What are those mysterious words at the hour markers? Some kind of code? An alien alphabet?

    Wait for the hour hand to come around and each is revealed as "One," "Two," and onwards to "Twelve."

    12" diameter clock has an aluminum frame and glass front.

    Runs on 1 AA battery (not included).


Was $29.95, now $12.98.

The Ballad of Katie Das

Catchy, what?

Now all we need is the song.

But I digress.

My favorite caramel fabricator was featured last week in a story by Mike Sula that appeared in Chicago Reader.

In it I learned all about her unlikely path to the top of sticky mountain.

Bonus: Katie let them into the Das Foods Caramelini factory for a world exclusive look at the creation of a 50 pound batch of her Candied Ginger and Pistachio caramels (my favorite among the eight varieties currently offered).

The video appears up top.

I watched (and listened) with rapt fascination as Katie narrated the seemingly simple, labor-intensive and artisanal process of creating her jewel-like, meticulously crafted pieces of gustatory heaven.

Time to reorder.
