So long Pontiac

Boy, when I was a young teen I wanted a GTO in the worst way. That car personified the whole 'Muscle' car thing for me.

Maybe if they hadn't made the Sunfire they might still be around.

This is just not right

NPR has an interesting story on how the Arizona immigration law began.

I know the got rocks will spin this as best for the country; however a shadow group of corporations including a private prison group should have ZERO say in making laws.

I admit to liking this 'genre'; however when taken with the eye of Charlie Stross it doesn't look like so much fun.

Mr Stross has a great blog post on Steampunk entitled, 'The Hard Edge of Empire'.

Life does fashion

I may be bleeding into blah blah's territory; however it is a big ole internet.

Life magazine has a photo slideshow of some of their covers featuring fashion over the years.

Three Dee Tee Vee

You can't avoid it. '3DTV Without Glasses!'


Here is how the powers-that-be want you to believe 3DTV looks like:

                                   Below is actually how it looks.

Actually the Time Tunneltm effects work pretty good and cost us nada.

This holiday season consumers should spend friviously and spend often!

New blogger alert!

Have a browse of The Flip-Side of Reason.

In the sea of so much blather on the intertubes TFSOR is a dose of realism and art and music and opinion and and, heck it's fun!

Late night talk show wasteland(US version)

It is no secret that almost anything is better than what passes for late night talk tv. Steve Allen is threatening to rise up! (You know, that would be a cool show, all the old late night hosts rising from the grave doing Zombie Talk!)

Conan O'Brien has a new show coming up and if this trailer is any indication it should be a goodie.

See his new trailer here.

Wish I could write

If I were an author I would want to be a mix of Isaac Asimov, Philip K Dick, Robert Heinlein, Charles Stross, Cory Doctorow, Frank Herbert, Brian Aldiss, Larry Niven and a plethora of talented folks past and present.

Since I am just a consumer I am happy knowing that I have been able to experience these folks take on what we call reality.
