The Unbearable Lightness of Blogging

For whatever reason, the creative juices haven’t been flowing around this here blog for some time. I can’t really explain why because I don’t actually know why. It’s just isn’t happening and, as I’m sure you know already, you can’t make it happen. It isn’t as though things haven’t been happening; I just haven’t had [...]

Mac Cult serves itself

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to take this opportunity to present to you proof that not even Apple itself thinks that the Mac can win the Mac vs. PC war. Have a look.

Adios, bye bye

Where in the world is I-66?

This weekend is going to be a long one for me. I’m going somewhere on Friday and coming back Monday. The question, of course, is where am I headed? I’ll give you a few clues.

News reports surface about how many man hours or how much money is lost by companies as a result of employees [...]

Means without ends

I step out of the car into the still city night. The moon and stars above light my path as I walk to the entrance, and all I hear is my feet on the sidewalk. I push the doors open with both hands. From the corner of the room, I watch myself enter and walk [...]

Me vs. You

Comedy Central’s newest Wednesday show, airing at 10:30pm just before The Daily Show, is Important Things with Demetri Martin. I was a little concerned about how his standup would translate to a 30 minute TV show, but it ends up being pretty good. Below is a song called Me vs. You from last week’s show. [...]
