Bob Dylan: A Greatest Singer of All Time

When I saw RS special issue 1066 at the magazine rack, I didn't think twice--I grabbed, paid and read the article written by Bono. Some people say, "Bob is no longer relevant," and to them I say, "eat my shorts!" Bob's one of the greatest, and he is more relevant now than ever. He'll always be. He's in the Norton Anthology of Poetry next to Shakespeare. His music is timeless. I agree with Bono, "the reason I'm never bored of Bob Dylan is because there are so many of them." But I can understand why some people don't like Bob, they just don't get it. And that's perfectly fine. Less fans the better I say.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving.

A friend sent me this and said I should blog it. I merrily concurred. Unfortunately I don't have a girlfriend that can give me the Little Sisters gift. Bummer for me. Cheers and Happy Holidays!

How Much Is Twitter Worth to Facebook?


I'm a little slow on what's been going on in the world of OBEY, but it looks as if they started a propaganda campaign for the protest on prop 8. As usual the 450/450 signed and numbered prints sold out within the first 5 min.

Adbusters I read Culture Jam: The Uncooling of America
How to reverse America’s suicidal consumer binge — and why we must
in college and found this site. The social commentary and art are interesting. Thought I'd share.

Let's hope "Twilight" is at its twilight.

So, I was reading my daily dose of the NY Times this morning when I stumbled upon a new term that we might see appear in the DSM-IV, (obsessive Jonas disorder) OJD. Affecting mostly teen girls and some dandy boys, this mental disorder begins in the preteen raging hormonal stage and ends with a confused semi-delusional sense of self at who knows when. You've probably seen them aimlessly walking around your grocery store wearing skinny jeans and sunglasses indoors. They're bored, unproductive and daydreaming. Maybe they'll buy some Cheetos.

This term was found in a not so favorable yet not so heavy-handed review of "Twilight", a movie that has been adapted from Stephanie Meyer's fictional "The Twilight Saga." We can credit Manohla Dargis for this interesting bit of journalism. Twilight... the Joni...horny teens...what a vicious circle.

T1 network and 115 min.? What is this world coming to? My T1 isn't the only thing that's slow around here; I should have done this the last night when the update launched. No matter. Shortly I'll have my 360 updated and my avatar created. It's only a matter of time. 

Economy on its knees and pleading for mercy!

Market Dives? That's the understatement of the year. The DJI has gone from 13k to 7.5k-- nearly half of the market share.


Obama-rama is almost everywhere. What is Obama-rama? People that act Obama, Obama, Obama... and more Obama. The news, television and radio broadcast Obama. It's in Art. In many circles it's actually cool to share the progressive philosophy that is Obama's. People even wear Obama. And as I have shown here, he's on nearly on every popular magazine in publication--with incredible close-ups showing the perfectness of his teeth. Naturally, they're creating history. For better or worse, Obama-rama is in vogue.

Get your B12. All 41667% of it!

A coworker brought to my attention the unusually high content of B12 in the energy drinks I brought to the office today.

Wikipedia says B12 is essential to body function. In fact, an acute deficiency in B12 is known to cause seriously bodily harm. My coworker, a former vegetarian, informed me that "plants do not supply B12 to humans," which would imply that vegans or vegetarians should use supplements or eat foods fortified in B12. He also said, in sarcastic tone, that you can drink a 4oz shot of this drink and get enough B12 to last you a whole month. I dunno about him, but I'm a little nervous drinking something with a percentage close to 50,000.
