Oh yeah? Well, "WE built this country on rock n roll". Which is,
alas, a collectivist enterprise known as "groups" and "bands". Actually, this self-built column is quite awesome. :)

Must stop watching RNC footage, speeches, what have you. So close to losing it, really losing it. And yes: TRULY. However, this made my day. The Facebook rants and accusations in it have proved the value of social networking in my eyes if for nothing more than for laughs. Who taped the the turtle to the balloons...

I witnessed another stupid argument about whether Hitler was liberal or conservative today. The correct answer is "Neither. Hitler was a FREAKING Nazi." Supporting arguments by comparing Hitler's methods to any mainstream American political movements are equally factious. Until a political party proposes systematically killing 11-14 million of anybody keep that idiot nonsense to yourself.
From a real estate story in the New York Times I just read: "Ms. ______ grew up in San Antonio and on her parents' ranch in Argentina..." Of course you'll never see "so-and-so grew up in a trailer in Appalachia." Sometimes I really do loathe the Times. So much ass-kissing of the privileged.

Arrogant, yet somewhat accurate. I like the comment about Thai food and salt. Thai restaurants drowning their dishes in salt seems to be strictly a Los Angeles thing, however. UGH. And can I just say that truffle oil doesn't make MOST food you would consider putting it on better? Especially, that rancid, unnatural truffle oil most chefs and cooks seem to be opting for.

Interesting how Brooklyn has become the urban laboratory par excellence. Our future, writ small and many times over.

Pretty concise explanation of motion graphics?
My sister's office building. She works one block away from Times Square (horrified emoticon?!!!). Whereas I would be less than thrilled to be working in such a crowded, popular place, I am certain she thrives in it. And it's right next to where all the morning shows are filmed, and she is constantly at morning show tapings. So it works out, but still...... It would be one long. continuous panic attack if I were her....
