A comedy group I’ve gotten into recently has a show called Backpack Picnic that can be found on the ON Networks site. If you’re looking for something new/funny/smart, check them out.
My favorite episode so far is called “Farmer Dinner,” in which a genius farmer son named “Ma jr.” argues with his farmer dad about the physical definition of work until they’re interrupted by “Pa jr.” who has just returned from returned from his new life as a fisherman. What could be funnier than that?
I like the Internet. I like web sites. I spend significant hours of my life with my computer. (I view it as my slave, forced to do my hardest work. But that’s another post.) Despite all of my time and interest, I don’t get the social networking fanatics. I saw an iReport video on CNN about some kids trying to petition the new style and layout on Facebook and I couldn’t help but think, “what?” (Seriously, watch it.)
Is it just me, or were you thinking, “college student?” when that second guy came on? And what about the first kid? He seems like he should be joking, but he’s not. Best of all is when they start talking about the attention the college kid has now with his group. The college kids says it’s annoying because people disagree with him. Ah, a good ol’ dose of reality. Some advise for this kid: when you protest a $15B company’s actions, don’t expect it to be easy. You might actual have to *gasp* work to get what you want if you feel it’s that important.
On the flipside, I hope it works out for him. I hate the new Facebook layout too.
I turned 30 today. w00t!
Thanks to everyone who has played some part in my life and helped me to get this far. My apologies to those of you who were banking on me meeting my demise before now. Better luck in the next three decades.
So I finally got busy enough that it is no longer worth it to spend any time on writing the code behind my own blog. Therefore WordPress is my new overlord. All hail WordPress.
WordPress should allow me to spend more time writing and less time hacking. Who knows, maybe I’ll even retroactively port all of those posts I’ve got reaching back to 2001. (Don’t hold your breath.) Anyway, more to come.
