Contrary Brin: Inception... then science and... →
It took me a couple months to get around to reading it, but this is a fascinating blog post. I especially agree with this passage: I always attend films with one or more “mental dials” turned down. I do this in order to be able to enjoy modern movies without spoiling them by noticing every flaw. Indeed, with some flicks I can (and have to) crank my mental age and IQ down around five. THE...

As usual, Greenwald has it exactly right and succinct too. Are you there, Alert & Knowledgeable Citizenry?
Kos blacklisted by MSNBC on Scarborough's orders →
I never liked Morning Joe because of the host’s ghoulish glee at the use of torture and his hypocritical hatred of all the things that make me think that the USA doesn’t totally suck yet. Now I guess I’ll have to not watch his crappy show even harder! [fixed link from earlier post]

Check out Erykah Badu’s new video, “Window Seat”. Not sure I agree with the mosaic blur, kind of took me out of the moment — reminded me that I was watching a video. She is certainly brave to film a video like that!

I just can’t put into words how troubling this information is. Worse, I believe there are powerful factions in this country intent on increasing the gap between rich and poor. I hope for an end to suffering for all sentient beings.
Letters of Note: Lou Gehrig's Disease →
Seventy years later, and it’s still too expensive to get sick in this country. I really hope our fearful leaders in WADC get their collective heads out of their asses and give us an alternative to the Health Insurance Cartel. As it stands now their progress looks more like re-arranging deck chairs on a cliché. The Democratic Party will never again have as much power as they do now, and...

Man, I (in a totally hetero way) <3 Coco! This story almost makes me feel bad for not watching him host the tonight show. Never felt bad for missing Leno, however.

More Drug War exceptions to the Fourth Amendment. Add this to the tens of thousands of no-knock SWAT raids every year and we swiftly approach a police state. Prohibition is Morally Wrong.

The Man in Black as Killer Whale: Weird Parallels...
I was watching a news story tonight about the Orca Tillicum who killed his third trainer at Sea World last week. Common themes can be seen in both stories: Isolation/Imprisonment, leading to Insanity, and Naked Aggression as a pastime Then of course there’s the color scheme… Of course, aspies like me will most likely have the more “meta” thought that both are...

A detailed review, most of which lines up with my experience so far. The only thing I’ve noticed that Soulskill left out in his review is some occasional audio glitches. I’m so glad they got rid of the inventory system from ME1!

The internet is inscrutable sometimes. What is the significance of the number 1099689, and why is associated with failure? Also, why is every single post on Thereifixedit.com tagged with the mysterious number? Don’t tell me to google it, it doesn’t work.
