A 7 to 8 dollar 24/48 hour rental, eh?

It's IFC Midnight's "Watch while it's in Theatres" price. It drops to around $3 for a rental once the DVD/Blu-rays release.

Rave: Met a girl from the Kansai region of Japan today, so I requested she say "nandeyanen!". Well, I didn't just get the line, I got the full routine!

Er, let me back up for a moment. The Kansai region is famous for "Manzi" standup comedy, which consists of a "straight man" and a "funny man". A common gag has the "funny man" saying something ridiculous, which prompts the "straight man" to exclaim "nandeyanen!" ("What the hell?!" spoken with a Kansai accent) and swat him across the chest with the back of his hand.

So basically a Japanese Abbot and Costello routine.

The one saying "nandeyanen!" does the swatting sadly.

Rave: my boyfriend has introduced me to Lord of the Rings Online. I like it.
rave: Alannah has tremendous fun pointing out all the 'bad things' for me to kill, and gets fairly upset when I avoid killing said things.
Rant: my Internet connection kinda sorta sucks.
Rave: a couple more months before we move in with him and his glorious connection.
Rant: I fucking hate my joints. Uh, the ones in my body. Not, ya know, weed.

PAX East is a gaming convention started by the Penny Arcade guys and is the virtual replacement for E3.
Yo Mav, I'm real happy for you and Imma let you finish but Hirschoff had the best sig trends of all time.

Rant: Unholy amounts of traffic leading up to the convention center. Funny how many people cut each other off to get to a convention where one of the rules is "obey Wheaton's Law ['Don't be a dick']."

Rave: The look on someone's face when you know they're from out of town and they're stuck in Boston traffic. "How did I end up stuck behind a cab stand? How do people do this every day?"

Rave: Had some unbelievable ceviche afterward. I don't get how sushi places are everywhere but there's nowhere to find good ceviche.

Rave: Okay, restaurants and chefs of the world. If you ask your customer "mild, medium, or hot," here's how you do it: You ask once, not patronizing the customer with that "are you sure you want to try our version of hot" crap. And then, when someone orders their food hot, you do not play around. I immediately added to my tip when I didn't get a follow-up question to "mild, medium, or hot" and ordered a dish where hot meant "by the end of this meal you are going to feel like a dragon."

And in several hours, a space rocket.

I'm now in the mood for Indian food. That's solved my dinner dilemma.
