jury duty

August 6th, 2009 (06:36 pm)

current mood: exhausted

I am in Jury Duty from hell. We are finally in deliberations and one of our Jurors acts like he's being personally attacked whenever anyone disagrees with him. Hopefully he'll be easier to deal with tomorrow morning after a good night's rest.

I can't help thinking - no matter which side gets a favorable verdict in this case (in any case), the lawyers always win.

Latest funny blog discovery: Texts From Last Night

exempli gratis:

(832): Jennifer and I just ate like 4 jello shots w/ a guy dressed as inspector gadget. We are still in the capital building btw
(281): I love Texas.
(713): Saw 2 former students outside gas station. gave me money to buy 2 12 packs, asked if I wanted to go to their party.
(713): I told them I had a gf and took one of the 12 packs. Come over.
(832): Texas should really raise its teaching standards.

iPhone apps

July 27th, 2009 (01:36 pm)

I just learned through a recent Daily Show episode that there are over 200 (two hundred) fart-related applications in the iPhone app library.

Having second thoughts about developing games for that medium...

I might as well announce it to the world. There's no use hiding anything these days.

I'm on FetLife: Benji was taken, so I'm BadBenji. ;)

protest hipocrisy

current mood: blog,angry,crazy,protests,patriotism

I hate this fucking hipocrisy. When the US beats it's protesters and holds them in jail without charges, it's patriotic, but when Iran does it, it's a human rights violation!

Fuck you!

current song: Regina Spektor-Chemo Limo

I started cutting my own hair because Regina Spektor told me to.

...Maybe you should cut your own hair cause that can be so funny
It doesn't cost any money and it always grows back
Hair grows even after you're dead
And if you kiss somebody
Then both of you'll get practice
People are just people
They shouldn't make you nervous
People are just people like you

Life, Inc. by Douglas Rushkoff

May 4th, 2009 (10:39 pm)

Doug Rushkoff, one of my favorite cultural critics and a brilliant modern thinker, is syndicating his new book, Life, Inc. online. Here is the first installment of the new book.
He begins with a tale about how he got mugged in front of his Brooklyn house one day. The most interesting thing about the mugging, however, is the fact that his neighbors are more concerned about their property values than about the actual safety of their neighborhood. He continues talking about gentrification, the corporatization of modern life, and basically talks about the million "logical" steps that have taken us to this bizarre place of acting against our own self interest.

It's a longish chapter-sized piece, but if any of you get through it, I'd love to hear what you think.
