IF I COULD BRING SUPERMAN TO LIFE…

Image by Gary Anderson From today’s Daily Post If you could bring one fictional character to life for a day, who would you choose? I’d pick The Man of Steel. We could sure use someone like him in the world right now. This is, of course, assuming that if I bring him to life I…

THE FACEBOOK EFFECT by David Kirkpatrick

I bought this book on my Amazon Kindle a few weeks ago, and have been reading it in my spare time. It’s a fascinating story that is much more balanced then the book which the movie The Social Network was based on. Far from the villain/asshole that that film made him out to be, we…

DEMOCRACY OR IDIOCRACY?

Libyan rebels accused of targeting blacks Rights groups say African migrant workers and black Libyans face beatings and detention by rebel fighters who suspect them of being mercenaries hired by Moammar Kadafi to put down the rebellion. Reporting from Benghazi, Libya — About a dozen African men stood lined along a hallway of the courthouse…

FACEBOOK RELATIONSHIPS

There’s been a couple of interesting changes regarding Facebook’s “Relationship Status” option recently. They’ve added domestic partnership & civil union as an option, a move that has been praised and condemned by members of the gay community. And a new 3rd party app was created to notify you of when your friends changed their relationship…

THE PRINCE’S BRIDE

I stopped at a Target store on my way to work a few days ago, and I saw the above book on the shelves. They’re not even married yet, and you’ve already got a “bestselling” author writing books about them. This is something I’ve thought about for years, and came to mind again last week…

THE GAME

I don’t think I watched it that much when it was first running on UPN/CW, but after it was canceled I started catching the reruns on BET. I found it to be a rather clever show. The focus was on the fictional NFL team, The San Diego Sabers. Derwin was a new recruit, who was…

GO FOR BROKE

When I woke up this morning, as I was still laying in bed, I turned on the TV and watch Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel. They had a story on ex-NFL players who have gone broke. They focused on two, Luther Elliss and Chidi Ahanotu , who both made millions of dollars and are now…

J.R. LUDDITE

Y’know, considering how much time I spend on the internet, and have been for the past decade, you’d think I would have more knowledge of electronics. But the truth is I’m a bit of a Luddite. I still haven’t figured out all the details of MY NEW CRACKBERRY. I want to set it on vibrate,…

GO GET ‘EM, TIGER!

As I write this, Tiger Woods is playing in the Dubai Desert Classic. It’s hard to tell if he has a chance of winning or not. And it’s hard to believe that there was a time when no one would have ever written that previous sentence. There was a time when it wasn’t even a…

LATEST NEWS

Let’s scan a few headlines: Heidi Montag to join ‘Real Housewives’? Good grief. As bad as The Kardashians are, “Spiedi” is even worse. GO AWAY. Please. Dallas TV Series – the Remake 2011 I became obsessed with this series when I was 13. My brother was already a fan, and I started watching because of…

MICHAEL JACKSON AND ME

I’ve heard a little about the upcoming trial of Dr. Conrad Murray regarding the death of Michael Jackson. I haven’t followed it deeply, so I can’t yet make a definitive judgment on the case, I’m not even sure exactly what he is charged with. All I can do is look at the superficial facts. If…

BEAM ME UP, SCOTTY!

Topic from today’s Daily Post: When teleportation is finally possible, where will you beam yourself first? First, we’ll have to assume that this thing has been tested a billion times and used by millions of people before I’d ever even think of trying any kind of teleportation device. I still probably never would, because I’d…

MR. WORST-CASE-SCENARIO

Today’s Daily Post question: Are you an optimist, a pessimist, or something else? Definitely a pessimist. ^^ This glass looks half-empty to me. I’m Mr. Worst-Case-Scenario, I always assume the worst. Although that’s not as bad as it sounds. I mean, this attitude has kept me out of trouble. I don’t commit crimes because I…

HENRY CAVILL IS SUPERMAN!

It’s been all over the news websites this morning, that Henry Cavill has been cast to star in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman movie, due in 2012. And I must say that I think he is an excellent choice, and will be able to play this role very well. I am a huge fan of The…
