Bursting the Bubble
I’m not a foodie by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I find much about foodie culture to be pretentious, cumbersome and borderline offensive. But I’ll spare you that rant. However, I do find myself reading Daniel Berman’s FUSSYlittleBlog, if only because he can actually write and addresses […]
The Next Generation is Not Lost
Good news comes to me today from my oldest sister Davelyn’s Facebook:
Kudos for the girls elementary school for incorporating schoolhouse rock into their social studies curriculum. the girls are having fun watching the videos in school and are walking around singing these songs that we sang along with back in the 70’s.

To the relief of many who will later be crushed to discover that unfollowed them on purpose, Twitter finally admitted that a bug exists that unfollows other tweeters without any action or warning:
The bug is causing Twitter users to randomly unfollow […]
Late last week, monologist Mike Daisey was disgraced by revelations that his famous (now infamous?) segment on “This American Life” last Fall, where he recounted his visit to the Foxconn plant where our beloved Apple products are made, was a lie.
His segment, excerpted from his one-man show The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, […]

Why you should stop spreading “Stop Kony”
Ugandan journalist Angelo Opi-Aiya Izama is one of many dismayed by the deliberate misinformation being spread by Invisible Children in their 30 minute propaganda piece “Stop Kony” and what it says about the current situation in Uganda:
“To call the campaign a misrepresentation is an understatement. While […]
And another one: Andrew Breitbart, 43
Shocking news this morning as Andrew Breitbart, controversial conservative blogger and activist, was announced dead of natural causes. He was 43.
Actually, to call him controversial is, for many, a diplomatic understatement. Some saw him as a pariah; he did unfairly cost some people their jobs and, to further […]
So long, Davy Jones
Davy Jones has died from a heart attack. He was 66.
One of my first obsessions with any television show was “The Monkees.” I think it was either VH1 or MTV (or both) that showed them incessantly at one point in […]
