FFS, Internet!

I write these little letters to the Internet, albeit they are few and far-between, mostly as humour. Unfortunately, I’m not in a very humorous mood regarding the Internet lately. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s how long I’ve haunted the hallow halls of social media. I don’t really believe that people are any more or…

Internet, we need to talk

Don’t worry, I’m not breaking up with you… at least not yet. Since I’m classically not proficient at relationships in general, that would be a long, drawn out process that may take more energy than I have. Then again, talking this out might be exhausting as well. It’s not your fault. You’re just doing your…

Double standards and our celebrities

As humans, we seem to have a tendency to, sometimes in our minds and sometimes overtly, reject things that are different than ourselves. To that end, I should admit that I avoided Duck Dynasty for what must surely be that reason. I watched an episode very recently and I have to admit I laughed. A lot….

Internet, I can’t live without you

Personal Responsibility

Is it lost on our kids? Today I read a meme on Facebook. It was a cartoon showing Wile E. Coyote strapping himself to a rocket and lighting a wick to blast himself off, undoubtedly in pursuit of the Road Runner. The insinuation is bad enough even without the comments that followed which included parents…

Why do I like bloggers?

I love bloggers because they will talk about anything. This works out well for me because I will read about pretty much ANYTHING. I love to get to know people. I think it’s fantastic to get to know the world from anybody’s point of view and not always just from the point of view of…

DJ Roulette… again.

I’m a little late coming into this news. During my commute each morning this week, I heard Stu Jeffries’ sweet voice and assumed that Humble & Colleen were on vacation again. I love Stu Jeffries. My problem is that his show is on in the evenings and it’s really an inconvenient time to listen to…
