Does anyone know Bill Kurtis personally? I think it would be awesome to have him record, "My name is Bill Kurtis and you're reading Snippet Wednesday at kapgar.com" and embed the MP3 in all future editions. Can anyone make this happen?
After all this time finding an iPhone case that allows me to use my cool little Photojojo macro/wide angle lens, guess what happens? If your answer was, "did you lose the lens, you idiot?" you'd be correct. I can't find that stupid thing anywhere. Well, it's not stupid. It's a great lens. I didn't mean to call you stupid, lens. Just come home, okay? We cool.
I love good parodies. They are so few and far between. I found one earlier today in my local bookstore. It's called Goodnight iPad by Ann Droyd (get it?). It looks and reads like a children's book and is even modeled after the classic Goodnight Moon but pokes fun at modern society's dependence on electronic devices of all forms. TVs, iPhones, computers, DVD players, e-readers, etc. Nothing is sacred. And it's so well done. Go out and buy this book. And if you buy an electronic copy... FOR SHAME!!!
The other day, I heard a really depressing song. Well, it's not depressing in the tempo or anything like that, just the lyrics. It's called "Birth, School, Work, Death" by The Godfathers. The implication of the song being that life is nothing but birth, school, work, and death, in that order. Wow. I know there are some days that it feels that way, but to basically sum up your entire life in four words like that? Depressing, indeed.
Speaking of depressing, this whole thing with the resurgence of Rick Santorum in the polls due to wins in Minnesota, Missouri, and Colorado? That's just wrong on so many levels. I get that Newt and Mitt aren't the best candidates. I said as much last week. But Rick Santorum? Whaaaaaa??? Oh Republican Party, you're even more FUBAR than I previously thought. It's time to just kickstart the U.S. political process from scratch, isn't it? Like Hollywood rebooting the Spider-Man and Superman franchises because the previous ones didn't go as planned. Just wipe the slate clean.
Oh well, time to go clean through some more boxes of childhood crap at my parents' house. Figure out what to keep and then throw away or donate the rest to charity.
If only it were as simple with the White House and Congress.
