So I was unemployed most of the summer. Happens. I did the work and pushed myself to get a new job and thought I was in good shape with an offer from an interactive educational software company that was part of a university. I took on a 6-month contract and felt excited about the opportunity. […]
I am a cord cutter. I only pay for internet then use a Roku to watch whatever individual channels I need. (I’ve got some cable login’s that allow me to get passed that part of the channel thing) One of the channels I have on Roku is YouTube. It’s a scaled up version of what […]
Bloody hell! I had to do this one TWICE! OBS failed me, I lost it. Had to do it again. And some people might not hear what I am saying. If you have an issue hearing the talk, try a different browser. I enjoyed this one! Please post any suggestions you might have for the […]
Ta-nehisi Coates is my hero. After reading him on The Atlantic and seeing him on Charlie Rose, I took the plunge and read his book Between the World And Me. The book knocked me back. It is a detailed book of what it is like to be poor and black in Baltimore. It is a […]
I am a huge Twitter user. It’s the primary thing I go to when I have a second. Standing online, taking a shit, spacing out watching TV – I’m on my twitter feed. I’ve been on Twitter since 2007 and have got tremendous amount of value from it. I don’t really talk to many people […]
Ok. Didn’t get fancy with one. Just on my lawn with an iPad. Have to keep working at it. It’s not coming easy. Tough to make all the calls when you can’t watch all the games and you’re parenting. I have so much respect for the youtubers and professional broadcasters who do a great job […]

It’s making me crazy….
craigcalcaterra: It’s an election year so there will be all kinds of absurd stories over the next several months which spin out of politicians’ compulsion to lie and reporters’ obligation to fact check. This morning I came across one involving Ted Cruz and Obamacare. The upshot: Cruz claimed to a crowd that he, an Ivy […]
I believe that everything that is culturally significant in the United States is due to the African-American Experience. Black people in their quest to defy, express and represent life as an oppressed people keep giving to our culture. The collective black experience if made into a single person would be the great American artist. Black […]
I’m up too late and not doing something I need to. Oh its opening day of the 2015 baseball season and Duke won the national championship of basketball…

Writing even once is hard, writing every day is even harder. Everyday that passes I give myself a hard time for not posting something, anything that I thought about. Over the years I have found that when I write, even a little, it makes me feel good. I always THINK about writing or at least […]
This week the nerd world has descended on the decadent hole that is Las Vegas. The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is being held and lots and lots of electronic crap is being hawked. Its the place where absurdly sized televisions, 3D Google glasses and gyroscopic gizmos all share a stage trying to hide the […]
Despite the result to #burnlry the family is still behind City. #mcfc #cute
The specifics are not important, or whether this particular case was handled accurately. The larger problem in the United States is the PERCEPTION, real or unreal, that there are separate sets of laws for the poor or of a racial minority, than for those of wealth and privilege. The narrative is: Cops can kill […]
