The Academy Awards just doesn’t understand INNOVATION. Period. 1

The Academy Awards just doesn’t understand INNOVATION. Period.

In 1978, the 50th Academy Awards presentation took place in Hollywood.  I didn’t watch them (I was less than ten years old) but I still have resentment for that year… a resentment that has been renewed thanks to watching the Oscars last night. You see, the clever Woody Allen comedy...

Flickr Friday: OMG A GIANT CHICKEN!

Joey Snackpants and I with a KFC chicken in Georgia. I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection that I think is kind of clucking cool. You can see the complete set...

Review: Atlas Shrugged

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand My rating: 5 of 5 stars Atlas, freaking, Shrugged. I wound up reading this book in via some strange circumstances. A popular video game called Bioshock had hit the market and a number of people were relating story elements from it to the book Atlas...

Flickr Friday: Tower of Terror for Two

I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection that I think is kind of coolio. You can see the complete set this photo is from here.

Review: Animal Farm 2

Review: Animal Farm

Animal Farm by George Orwell My rating: 4 of 5 stars I often wonder how I dodged the bullet of reading so many “classics” when I was in school. If I read this, I don’t remember doing so. Either way, reading it now (later in life) really reminds you that...

Flickr Friday: Even G1 #Transformers can suck from time to time.

Yes… Cosmos has commonly been pointed out as being the DUMBEST Autobot concept in the G1 universe by myself and Mr. Snackpants at DARE! The Transformers Panel Ultimate.  This fact is only made better by the fact that Teletran 1 can’t even spell his name correctly.  (The pic is one...

Review: Decoded 0

Review: Decoded

Decoded by Jay-Z My rating: 4 of 5 stars I keep reading reviews describing Jay Z’s Decoded as a scrapbook. To me, though, it reads more like a blog. Bloggers tell stories of their lives; they give interpretations of things around them; they post pictures to illustrate elements of their...

Flickr Friday: Check out her, um, “eyes”!

According to Flickr’s stats of my account with them, this photo is the MOST VIEWED photo I have posted.  Gee.  I wonder why.  LOL I occasionally update new photos (and old ones that I scan) on my Flickr account.  Each Friday I post one on my blog from my collection...

So Rhett Palmer and the Vero’s Voice “newspaper” just annoyed the hell out of me. 4

So Rhett Palmer and the Vero’s Voice “newspaper” just annoyed the hell out of me.

Mr. Palmer, Please note that Wikileaks and Wikipedia are NOT the same entity.  Wikipedia is a wonderful project developed as a free online encyclopedia.  Wikileaks is a project developed to distribute information for the purpose of making the intent of world governments a bit more transparent. Opinions are one thing...

Review: Pirate Latitudes 1

Review: Pirate Latitudes

Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton My rating: 2 of 5 stars I love Michael Crichton books. I even like the bad ones. This book, though, was just watered down and read more like an outline for one of Michael’s lesser works. Published after his death, Pirate Latitudes was a “complete”...
