I’ve spent the last couple days trying to get my new antennae working. I was hoping that, while my brother was in town, I’d be able to get some NFL games for him. Try as I might, though, I could only get three UHF stations (including NBC, PBS, and Ion/Pax). I moved the antenna here,…
I will never read a website hosted through Patheos again. While I don’t mind advertisements, I do mind advertisements with audio that start automatically. At a deafening volume. And that re-spawn, at the same deafening volume, after I turn on mute. Maybe there’s a way to control that. But I don’t care.
Via BoingBoing, please enjoy an opinion piece on a controversial topic. The comments may be better than the OP, and that’s saying something.

I plowed through Double Down, which I recommend if you are one of the relative few who belong both to the set of people who like politics and the set of people who are not put off by tittle-tattle and gossip and long-winded descriptions of a win-at-any-cost mentality. In additional to the tittle-tattle, however, the story…
James Hanley proposes a No Rent Seeking constitutional amendment.
Some things shouldn’t exist. This is one of them. Why is it necessary to brand a child a “flirt”? And not just any child… a child between the ages of 6 and 18 months, as indicated by the product description. Seriously, people. Babies aren’t accessories. They aren’t toys. They aren’t there for your amusement…
Dman, once again, breaks down the week that wasn't.
When the alarm went off this morning, I did the quick "turn it off, turn it back on" thing. Then I realized that I could turn it back off.
Linky Friday makes an appearance! On the docket: Energy, hysteria, culture, government, and work.
Having only just renounced any claims to being either a filmmaker or writer, let me now tell you about what's going on with my writing and filmmaking.
