Theory into Action.  »  a guy named dave
Crashed in Brooklyn last night with my bud, Patrick, who's also the designer behind the NEMstudents.It was a trek and half getting to Columbia this afternoon, but Cleve was there speaking with students. It reminded me of when he spoke at 1FEST, intimately with students. Very real. About their concerns and the direction of this movement. He spoke about the need for students to take charge, to take hold, but for a greater need to develop an understanding of civil disobedience...I spoke with students after the event. We need to think bigger, we agreed. Nobody is going ...

FILM REVIEW: Sully  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Last weekend I was in Los Angeles and I was able to get together with a group of friends and we went and saw Sully the latest movie from Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood (Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, American Sniper) and starring 2-time Oscar-winner Tom Hanks (Philadephia, Forrest Gump, Bridge of Spies). The movie is, of course, a cinematic adaptation of the incredible story of the "miracle on the Hudson" that occurred when a U.S. Airways jet with 155 people on board (passengers and crew) experienced a freak collision with a flock of birds that destroyed both engines a few minutes after takeoff ...

BOOK REVIEW: The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
British author David Mitchell is most well-known for his seminal work Cloud Atlas (which is one of my favorite books of the 2000-2009 decade and was made into a fascinating, underrated 2012 movie by the Wachowski siblings starring Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Halle Berry).  His latest book is The Bone Clocks which I received as a present for Christmas in 2014 and I am ashamed it took me so long to pick it up and finally read  because in my opinion it's even more compelling than Cloud Atlas. The two books have a lot in common in that they are both written using ...

iTunes Selection - Culture Club  »  A Life in the Day
This week's iTunes selection is a protest song, of sorts, from one of the biggest bands of the 80s: Culture Club. The War Song, when it was released, was not viewed kindly by the critics. But I think it's a great song, as did all the concert goers when we saw Culture Club at the Hollywood Bowl a few weeks ago. It's catchy, bouncy, and seems like a happy song, even though it's very anti-war. Take a listen: ...

Yo Bezos, fix your website!  »  Fiat Blog!
Jeff,Merch by Amazon still has the bugs it launched with. Are you going to commit to it, or just let it hang semi-functional? You didn't budget much for it when you set it up; it's a surprisingly bare-bones service for Amazon. Now, given your reputation as an employer, you will probably give everyone associated with Merch by Amazon a hard time for not setting it up flawlessly, but I would ask that you not do that. It's not their fault. The problem is that you are such an unpleasant employer that those who had the skills to set it up ...

After that he shows what he can do with it without reading or receiving any instruction at all. And then he proceeds to test it over the Hudson River! ...

Misheard  »  A Life in the Day
A few days ago, I posted on Facebook that I listened to Alanis Morissette's Uninvited for the umpteenth time and still had no idea what a stoic squirrel was. Caesar commented, "She said 'stoic squirm'". I knew that, of course. The actual lyrics are: It must be strangely excitingTo watch the stoic squirmBut to me and to my ears, I will always hear her singing about a stoic squirrel (possibly fighting against the villainous crows who want to steal his stash of nuts for the winter). And this lead me to musing about other lyrics that I quite easily misunderstood. ...
