Selling out to see a ship…

Thank you Premier Exhibitions, for putting on quite the show… and by quite the show I mean a Disneyland spectacular of commercialism and corporate greed. You sold out lives lost on the Titanic for commercial profit. I drank the juice because I thought it would be a great place to rest a childhood fascination with…

Champagne Supernova

They say that every atom in our body was once a part of our universe. Stars and fragments of greatness are now flowing through my body and with each pump of my heart, microscopic bits of the world are mixed with blood and cells. Do our future family members hide out in the sky, instead…

Microsoft: MS Standards over Innovation

I’m putting Gates and Ballmer on notice. Not only have I seen the Microsoft I’ve come to loathe over these past 15 years pummel farther and farther down the rabbit hole of forced ‘Innovation,’ I’ve seen it completely abandon hope of retaining the market it once had. It’s a lazy ballet dancer at an audition…

Even I surprise myself…

I was packing up to head out to the grocery store about ten minutes ago, when I received a text. I answered, mustered up my greatest courage and just tried to let it go.  Im going to write for a bit, and see what comes out. I know myself, and in my greatest moments of self-confusion…

Saving YouTube Videos

Saving YouTube Videos I posted this in the last thread, but some might find it useful for saving youtube videos, though youtube seems pretty cool allowing violent videos to stay posted for documentation. Enter this code into your favorite text editor and save as whatever.html javascript:if%20(document.getElementById(’download-youtube-video’)==null%20&&% 20 !!(document.location.href.match(/http:\/\/[a-zA-Z\.]*youtube\.com\/watch/)))%20{ var%20yt_mp4_path=’http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt=18&video_id=’+swfArgs[’v ideo_id’]+’&t=’+swfArgs[’t'];%20var%20div_embed=document.getElementById(’watch-e mbed-div’);if(div_embed){var%20div_download=document.createElement(’div’);div_do wnload.innerHTML=’ %20Download%20as%20MP4%20′+%20%20((navigator.userAgent.indexOf(’Safari’)!=-1)?’ (control-click%20and%20 select%20Download%20linked%20file%20as)’:(’(right-click%20and%20select%20Save…

#IranElection

Someday, when the history of this revolution is written, I hope I can learn the names of these people. These aren’t soldiers dying. These aren’t criminals, maniacs, villains or bad people dying. These are children.  -Karin17atgmaildotcom 1:26 PM ET — Attacking the defenseless. What is so shocking about many of these videos is that the…

Letter to Ava: 6.10.09

My beautiful little girl,  There are moments when you are sleeping, (one leg sprawled off the bed and your arms in a monkey-bar-reaching-position,) that I can’t help but watch as you take the smallest breaths and let out tiny snores of preschooler perfection. I come into my room and close my eyes for a while…

Open your hearts, legs and uteruses to Jesus…

  I just don’t get it. The affirmation of your faith that you are going to house as many children as  your glorious uterus can handle to make an army for god. Embryos for Jesus. I just can’t imagine God cheering on the Duggar army as they mercilessly strike anyone down who dare go against their…
