The Farce of Freedom

I just finished watching "The Interview". 
For those that would like a chance to watch the  newly released production for FREE, GO HERE
I'd like to take a moment and reflect upon the film and my experience. For those that haven't seen the video I'm writing about, please be warned -- SPOILER ALERT!! Stop reading, and go watch the movie, although it isn't necessary as what I'm about to tell you is not a secret. Even if you don't watch this highly critiqued and anticipated political piece of propaganda, you will still find relevance in what I'm about to explain.


Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) are the team behind the popular tabloid-TV show "Skylark Tonight." After learning that North Korea's Kim Jong Un (Randall Park) is a huge fan of the show, they successfully set up an interview with him, hoping to legitimize themselves as actual journalists. However, as Dave and Aaron prepare for their jo…

It's As If No One Pays Attention

There's a question I'm constantly being  asked; "What have you been up to?" 

Now, I understand the intent of asking such a thing; whoever is asking is probably being polite, and observing one of the niceties of social interaction. Other reasons include breaking an awkward silence, catching me with a mischievous smile on my face, or when I move away and don't come back (like what happened in Spring 2014). Even more reasons why someone might ask me "What have you been up to?", could be when they catch me staring at their boobs too long, and are trying to break that uncomfortable silence while I have a glossy, mischievous smile on my face. You know? There are legitimate reasons......I'm just saying......

On the average, I usually simplify things by responding with, "Not much", because it has a tendency to make things easier. In that case, the regular response is a simple, "Same". It's a nice, quick, and fairly painless attempt …

Wacky Weather from the World Wide Web

Cloud computing has just been proven to be environmentally problematic!

Scientists around the world are worried. For years, concerned watch organizations have been warning people about the devastating effects of using practically untested technological advancements or equipment. All technology must go through testing phases before being released to the public, but many are forced through these safety tests by entrepreneurs with a large bankroll. As is the case, it's only many years later when scientists can see the patterns such as health risks, or environmental damage, that can lead to the discontinued use of potentially dangerous manufactured items. A comparison of two recent International surveys between the scientific community, and the general population shows that, scientists are more optimistic than the public when it comes to the benefits of emerging technology. In a contrasting report, scientists are more concerned over the long-term health impacts, and environmental issu…

I don't know what lead me to that party. A night out on the town was one thing, but I knew it was pushing the limits when I chose to leave the bar with the group of strangers I met that night. They were mysterious, seemingly exuding power; the two blondes who could entice with every deft movement they made, the red-head who was the epitome of sexy, the very hairy, boisterous, younger male, and the oldest of the five, a very serious, intense man, dressed in leather and chains. Perhaps I didn't want the night to end. Maybe it was the promise of alcohol and drugs. Possibly the sexual allure of three women. I don't know. All I know, is I went willingly.

How was I to know that my life would be irrevo…
