mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Winner: Fact checkers. They've been in high demand and kept busy. I hope they're being paid per fact checked. Winner: Twitter. Once again, Twitter proved its relevance. Without Twitter, I would have thrown something at the TV or died from implosion, you know, all that screaming inside my head and my chest. Loser: All of [...]

Dear Mark Z, congratulations on the new baby. And kudos for knowing Chinese. I've just added you to the list of "See? These people can learn to speak Chinese. Why can't you?" to show my kids. Oh, don't worry. I am not asking you for money like Kanye West just did. To be fair though, he's [...]

Random Randomness

I confess the reason why I took to Twitter so passionately was because I am the ultimate "idea man". You know, like those people that go in front of movie studios execs to pitch movie ideas? (I learned of the movie industry from TV shows so YMMV) I have lots of one-liner ideas but that [...]

I feel bad for Mitt Romney…

Kind of. For about 10 seconds. It's tough to be a politician nowadays what with the ever shrinking size of recording devices and of course, the Internet. Oftentimes in this hyper-connected, over-sharing, real-time-news-update-by-the-second, meme-obsessed world, WWW is the kingmaker. At the same time, it could also easily topple a career. (Ironically, the same world is [...]

Source: I saw this cartoon via Paul Rieckhoff today.   My 13-year-old is working on a debate project for school. His topic? Support for Death Penalty. (He has turned in a written article against death penalty last week. The teacher wants them to be able to argue from both sides for the topic they are [...]

Friday, 22-April-2011 22:03:12 On my way to see the band The Boxer Rebellion that started at 10. It's 10 now. Am nowhere near Double Door the bar/concert venue. Panic attack 22:04:58 I'm going by myself again. [I went to see them for the first time last September]. With extra tickets. Maybe I'll give the ticket 2 [...]

Hubris. In case you are worried that all your kind compliments may have given me an ever-expanding ego, No Worries, my friend... I emailed several of my Annie Lennox+Sabina-From-The-Unbearable-Lightness-Of-Being inspired photos to The Husband. I got one line in response from him: What are you planning to do with those pictures? And this came only [...]

Only 3 days late. . . (Cue music: "I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me?" Even more a loser because I am partying like it is 1993 to this song sitting at my desk...) . . . Now that we got the obligatory discussion of New Year's resolutions out of the way, [...]

Faraway, So Close.

I came across an interesting article today in which the author questioned the recent brouhaha / vociferous protest against the security measures enforced by TSA while some other, more serious, offense committed by the US government, such as the wrongful execution of  its citizens, did not inspire nearly enough the appropriate amount and degree of outrage. The author [...]

Cold Turkey (A Pictorial)

I have not been motivated to write real posts for a while now because I find lately my stats dispiriting, to say the least... . . . . . Oh well. This kind of provides me with a great excuse to show you this picture I took when I all of a sudden saw something [...]
