Around her head she wore a yellow ribbon.

You know. I was reading an article in Time a couple of days ago entitled The Danger of Yellow Ribbon Patriotism by Joe Klein, and it really got me to thinking about the (so called) war and the effects the millions of decals, magnets, ribbons and signage displayed all over the freaking place. It appears … Read more

So I know I shouldn’t admit this…

I was at Borders the other day (because I bought a book I already had, and had to exchange it) and ran across this Batman Graphic Novel series called Hush. It’s a collection of comics from last year by Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee, and Scott Williams; and it’s awesome! The artwork is superb and the … Read more

Circle, triangle, square… which do you prefer?

Back in bidness!

Back from a brief respite, I am back in bidness selling some shirts to support my geeky habits of computers and the Internet. Check it out and buy! I’m hooking up with Zazzle now, and man do they have Cafepress beat on the colors and variety of shirts. I haven’t bought any yet, but I … Read more

It’s the little things really….

I’m so happy that I finally figured out how to install the latest flash plugin on my computer. I should clarify though, on Linux. See I’m not really a Linux junky, so it was sorta bein a pain in the arse. But no more….. Yay!!!
