Google E-Book Store

Google is launching an E-Book store that will allow you to read books on any mobile device that has an internet connection. So instead of worrying about memory and moving books from your phone to your iPad to your laptop, you can simply store your favorites in a cloud. You decide when and where you make it rain.

Got Ayds?

"Lose Weight Without Drugs"

If you're worried about gaining too much weight during the holiday season, try a diet of bad taste.

Have you seen this Santa Claus?

If you see him, call the FBI - or don't, like most everyone else who is keeping their mouth shut about the whereabouts of John Robert Boone aka "King of Pot" aka "Godfather of Grass" and notorious member of the "Cornbread Mafia." Locals consider his offenses closer to that of a modern day moonshiner, rather than a criminal.

Don't forget to buy a Run, Johnny, Run t-shirt or other Boone related items for your special lady this holiday season!

BlackFriday & CyberMonday

Hey e-readerless friends. Amazon is selling their remaining Kindle 2s for super cheap. Do you scoop them up Friday or wait to see what other readers, tabs and pads go on sale on Cyber Monday? Or are you poor like me and just living vicariously through other classmates?

(Wo)man Up

It wasn't long ago that Sarah Palin was plucked from Alaska as part of McCain's desperate attempt to win the presidential election of 2008. Before the campaign was over, Palin was already biting the hand the feeds her. It is well documented that she is uninformed and has little executive experience. She's not good with policy, law, the constitution and all that bookish stuff. But she can work a room. She has a nice smile and a nice wardrobe.

Since 2008 she's quit her position as Alaskan governor to strut it, full time. She's published a book, starred on a TV show and made a bundle traveling the country as a guest speaker in an effort to raise momentum for a 2012 presidential campaign. Her gaffes and divisive politics are entertaining at their lightest and scary as hell at the heaviest, considering a sizable demographic buys what she's selling. What I've noticed is that nobody within the Republican party has the cojones to stand up to her. Not McCain, Bush I or II, or other Republican leaders. Republican 1-man think tank, Karl Rove, has dared question her but each time he's forced to shrink his opinion by Fox News and their viewers. So who is man enough to stand up to Palin? Who has the gravitas? During the 2010 election campaigns female republican candidates were spreading the mantra, "Man Up!" Finally, that someone is...Barbara Bush?

Infected Fantasy

I play fantasy sports. Football, Baseball, Basketball, Hockey...I've even played golf and NASCAR. No matter the sport, injuries occur. In basketball, players often have ankle or knees problems; it's bound to happen when you're seven foot tall and throwing your body around.  This season I drafted David Lee, starting forward for the Golden State Warriors. This month he had two surgeries. Why? Because an opponent's tooth broke off in his elbow during a game, causing multiple infections. I don't really have anything profound to say about this but Really? Why me? Why my team? I know, I didn't lose a tooth or get one stuck in my elbow but David Lee needs to be more considerate to fantasy ball players when he's swinging his elbows in the face of his opponents while fighting for rebounds. Thanks, thanks a lot.

Kid Stuff

Beautiful Losers is part celebration of imagination and part history of east and west coast graffiti, skateboarding, artist subculture of the past thirty years. The artists reflect upon growing pains as they transitioned from juvenile artists to struggling and starving adult artists naively establishing their presence in the art world. This is an inspiring film for any adult who is still compelled to create. For anyone who believes that creativity and imagination are limited to childhood. Not perfect but definitely worth checking out.
