I’ll have to stop writing reviews or save the reviews for later. Maybe avoid all GR drama (sometimes impossible). 

I wish there was a “Be Kind to Everyone” month. I fancy some pretty sweet tag lines like “Stop Being an Asshat for Just 30 Days” or “Make Everyone Think You’re Nice (for a month)”, even “I’m going to pretend you’re not a douche until next month.”

I know, I know. This socialist talk is going to get me into trouble, isn’t it?

KONY 2012: Do Your Research

So I saw this video on Youtube when it was still at a measly 50000 views. I was impressed by how rapidly word hit every social networking site imaginable, but I took it with a grain of salt and did my research.

I’m not saying what Invisible Children Inc. is doing is bad; I’m just saying it’s mis-directed and perhaps a little presumptuous. We can do better.

Read some great stuff about it.

Please be in the know.

Although I liked how much attention this has gotten. Perhaps it is time to tackle the entire Africa instability issue. This should not be about what was done or past crimes, but about where to go from here and how to prevent it in the future. Make a future possible, in fact.

Has anyone else seen this horrid garbage?

The “Real” Author of Harry Potter 

It’s actually kind of funny. But at first I was like 

Then, after cooling my head it was all good. But I don’t get what he gets out of this.
