We had a night out on the town alone, the wife and I, and we saw “Red Dawn.” It was a toss-up between this and “Life of Pi,” but the game of ‘paper, rock, scissors’ never fails in making these hard decisions. What I can tell you about this film is that it stands apart … [Read more…]
Lennart Green, the foremost close-up card magician of the world, dazzled the audience of TED 2005. I caught the video today on my Zune and was thrilled. His show is very entertaining, quick witted, and his foreignness is close to my heart (Green is from Gothenburg, Sweden). The TED video is around … [Read more…]

However, I see the potential here. … [Read more…]
I got a Zune for Christmas – a wonderful gift, really. I really wanted to get into the iPod/Zen/etc. scene, but I wasn’t that interested in the whole iTunes thing. I also want video to be a comfortable size and 4:3 aspect ratio. The Zune has that, and is still pocket size … [Read more…]
Davison launches “InventionLand,” not entirely dissimilar from Neverland – without Michael Jackson. The idea is simple, though the results sound very positive. Davison created InventionLand to host inventors in a creative environment where their minds can open up to possibilities as they did when we were children. The images and movies of … [Read more…]
I took a morning stroll through man’s disturbing past and read some articles about Ed Gein recently. If you’re planning on reading through this man’s history, you should probably do so a little later in the day.
