Remember when I destroyed my entire music collection of over 5,000 albums? Well, an email from eMusic (rejoin now and get 50 free tracks!) prompted me to start collecting again, although on a much smaller (and more legal) scale. What was my first download? Why, the greatest piece of music ever written, of course!

Pssst. Something I’m really excited to launch is coming. More later.


Click it. A quick visual representation I threw together of some of the assets of 5 major conglomerates. Summary: Time Warner owns the planet.

As a big Batman fan, I loved this short Justice League mockumentary.

Critics of global warming will love this article.

I think the cuttlefish is the most interesting animal I’ve heard of. See this video for an explanation of its shapeshifting, colorshifting ways.

Are we still going to surrender to the NRA?

White to move. Forced mate in 517 moves (no joke!). Can you find it? 🙂

I’ve been hating on pop music for several years now. I think pop music is, nearly by definition, just a boring rehash of (a) pop music from yesterday or (b) a trite transliteration of earlier good music into bland pop conventions. A shockingly clear example of this is given by Webshite here. “How You Remind Me” (the #1 Billboard single of all 2001) plays in the left speaker, and “Someday” (a US Top Ten single from 2003) plays in the right speaker. You can hear it’s exactly the same song.

Webshite writes: “Nickelback… you bastards, you’re taking advantage of those tone deaf MTV brainwashed twats who are too thick to notice you’re releasing songs that are EXACTLY THE SAME as ones you recorded earlier.”

Funniest thing I’ve seen/heard in quite some time.

I’ve decided to hold off on the next Journey into Truth post because I want to do something special with the series that will take a long time to prepare.

I just watched an episode of Morgan Spurlock‘s 30 days wherein an atheist must spend one month living with a Christian family. I feel so sorry for the atheist.

Finally, here’s a snippet of my favorite comment on Al Gore yet:

In fact, the planet “has” been mostly warming up, otherwise our race would not exist: human civilization emerged after the end of the Ice Age. [But what’s wrong with the warming? Gore] mentions that the oceans would rise by almost seven meters. With all due respect, the worst estimate from climatologists is about 7 cm… He calls for a cut in emission of carbon dioxide. But he does not mention the easy solution to the problem, that would also solve a lot of other problems, from Islamic terrorism to the crises with Iran and Venezuela: abandon oil in favor of nuclear power. What he asks us to do, instead, is basically go back to the stone age. Most of the planet would rather wait for the oceans to rise 7 cm.
