My thoughts on Apple and Flash.

Okay, people. I’m a geek. I’ve been using computers since I was a kid and still remember DOS. I studied computer science in college. I’ve been designing web pages since 1997, though I still have a lot to learn about some of the newer changes (forgive me, two kids’ll knock you out of the loop).

Quick: Dr. Drew is lame.

I have a much longer subject I’d like to share my thoughts about, but I’d like to address this first. I’ve lost all respect for Dr. Drew. In his latest bizarre interview, Dr. Drew Pinsky (host of radio show Loveline, and television programs Celebrity Rehab and it’s various spin-offs) decided to discuss Sandra Bullock. Specifically,

Is blogging journalism?

When Gizmodo posted their photos of the next iPhone prototype, it seemed to me that all the references to cloak and dagger deals to get their hands on a lost prototype was merely Gizmodo covering up a deal with Apple to leak it. Only, once Apple started sending out nasty notices about the missing device,

Monday Waffles!

Yes, waffles on a Monday. There are many times that I lament the fact that TheBoy works nights, but Monday mornings are not one of them. With his schedule reversed, he’s usually up Monday morning, and we can have a nice big breakfast for just the four of us. Otherwise, we’d have to double the

Kermit was wrong, it’s easy being green.

I admit it. I am an Earth nut. Have been since the 90′s when Earth Day made it’s big comeback. Ventura used to hold annual Earth Day fair’s at the beach where you could learn about Ventura County’s new recycling program, water treatment programs and all sorts of neat new techologies. Vendors sold reusable bags,

Why I loathe PETA.

(Warning, this blog post was written in the span of 45 minutes. I probably could have spent hours and hours, and the span of a month writing it, with full links and whatnot- but I wanted to get this out there.) Today, PETA announced that Kate Winslet narrated a video detailing the horrors of foie

Are video games art? Ebert says no.

What is art? That’s a question that comes up every so often in regards to modern art installations. For those unfamiliar, installations are typically more than a show at a gallery. Usually it’s a showing by a single artist with an over-all cohesive theme that’s been put together specifically for that specific space. At the

Oh, Jim Carrey. Just stop tweeting.

Jim Carrey, once upon a time, I thought you were entertaining. Then you dated Jenny McCarthy and began spouting anti-vaccination nonsense. Yes, nonsense. There have been no studies that positively link vaccines to autism. Indeed, most studies seem to indicate that the timing of when certain vaccines are given is about the time that signs

The worst food blogger?

That’s right. I know of the worst food blogger, and I’m going to name names. It’s me. Maybe it’s because I’ve become so accustomed to food blogs filled with delicious looking food. You see, I have a big problem. When I make something- usually I’m so excited to dig in that I completely forget to

The landslide.

I’m quite familiar with erosion. It all starts gradually, things falling bit by bit… and then eventually after stress, the whole hillside caves way. It’s the same with writing. Whenever I start things like Script Frenzy, I start strong. I keep to my quota for a few days. Then, I fall a page behind. I
