Mind boggling

October 14, 2011 Leave a comment

There is a 9% unemployment rate in this country and our economy is suffering, but things like this still happen:

  • iPhone 4S mania: There were 1 million pre orders for the iPhone 4s on the first day you were able to pre order it. All those people were prepared to drop a minimum of $200 on a new phone and about $80 – $100 per month on it’s service. The part that boggles my mind is how people can wait hours and even days in line to get one! There are people looking desperately for jobs and then there are the folks who call in sick so they can wait in line for an iPhone 4S.

One of those days

Ever have one of those days, where things just don’t go your way. When something that normally works, just doesn’t. I saw this picture up on the web and the minute I saw it, I could imagine what that dude against the wall was feeling. We live in a time where many have had days where it feels like a bull has hammered your ass!

My Update on Random Things

December 9, 2008 Leave a comment

working_hard

So, it’s been a while since I posted anything worth reading. However, my last post on the MacBook is no bullshit. That thing is amazing and OS X blows Vista away. I’m sorry to say that because I really wanted Vista to be good, but it’s just not there yet.

Anyway, the past month has been tough yet rewarding. I got a new job as a Help Desk Manager for an international company based on Long Island New York. The tough part is getting in the new mix after being with another company for 9 years. You tend to find a comfort zone after a long time and moving on is really hard emotionally and mentally. I made the move to advance my career and all I can say is that it was the right move. I am honestly having alot of fun but the amount of work is tremendous. Getting use to new people and company can be difficult, but so far it’s been pretty easy. The coolest part is actually being able to implement my own ideas and watching the end result, which has been success…to this point. There is still alot of work to do and I look forward to it.

My next update is on my new Video Camera. I recently got a Canon HG20 High Definition camcorder. This camera is truly a blessing and the videos are pure eye candy. It’s got an internal 60GB hard drive, so I never have to worry about tapes. The high definition settings are excellent. There is a even a “cine mode” where the camera records at 24fps and makes your home movies look like an authentic movie. It’s almost surreal when you first see it. I would highly recommend this to anyone in the market for a new video camera.

As a side note…..I want to extend my apoligies to my xbox crew (calmixx, krozzbow, brother jobu, elite fx and capta1nawesome). I haven’t been destroying the locust horde with you lately as I have been very busy and tired. I promise to be on soon enough.

The Race Card

October 14, 2008 1 comment

I haven’t written a blog post in a while due to lack of inspiration. I did post 2 new articles that deal with my usual content, “Entertainment”. Yes, I tend to bash celebrities becuase I just don’t get why they act like assholes when they are so lucky to be in the position they are financially. Anyway, I digress.

I keep hearing how Barack Obama is leading John McCain in all these polls that are being done by the media. These polls really don’t mean shit!! I think that this election is going to come down to RACE. We still live in a society where race plays a big factor in everyday life, it’s unfortunate, but true.

For example…..

– If you were to see a man wearing a turban getting on an airplane, the usual reaction or thought is, “he must be a terrorist”.

– If you see a couple walking in a mall and the man is African American and the woman is Caucasian, the initial reaction is still shock, because of the “Jungle Fever” factor.

– If you see an Asian person, people automatically assume that he must know Karate or owns a Chinese food restaurant

– Contrary to popular belief, hispanic people don’t all live in one house

– All African American men do not play Basketball

Do you see what I’m getting at? No matter how open minded you are, there is still a race factor playing out in your life, like it or not and it will play a huge roll in this election.

I sincerely hope that Barack Obama wins the election, simply because I feel he is the better candidate of the 2. Is he the best person for the job?….NO. I still believe that Hillary Clinton should be in that position. However, that is just not the case. So based on the 2 candidates we have, I choose Obama.

For the people who say they will vote for Obama, don’t change your vote becuase of the color of his skin. If you feel he is the better candidate, then that should be your reason to vote for Obama.

Here’s a final thought. If we were all blind, the only thing that separates us as a people is our intelligence.

Sarah Palin Supporters Calling for Her Exit!

September 26, 2008 3 comments

Seems like Sarah Palin’s supporters are calling for her to step down, stating that she is “out of her league”. After her rare interviews with Charlie Gibson, Hanity and Katie Couric showed her explicit inexperience on many issues.

Frankly, I’m happy to see that Republicans are seeing the light. It’s about time because she truly scares me. I just don’t agree with her policies and her lack of experience is frightening. If she decides to step down she would do the country a favor. I also believe that she is feeling the pressure and she is realizing that she is out of her league.

I applaud her for her resolve, but she is just not ready to lead as a VP. If McCain is elected, she is truly a heart attack away from being president.

Where Is Eminem When You Need Him?

September 21, 2008 Leave a comment

Arguably one of the greatest rappers of all time, Eminem has always been one to cause controversy. His style is crazy but catchy. His rhymes are entrancing. For me it was hard to just listen to the beat of any of his songs because I was so amazed by his lyrics. The man may be white, but he is a great rapper.

I’m writing this post because during the last election, Eminem made a song called “Mosh” which was amazing. He made some of the most incredible digs at the Bush Administration and the government in general.

I hope he comes back and does something for this election. It would really help the younger base of voters who can vote but probably aren’t interested enough to vote.

But mostly I hope he goes after Sarah Palin……She truly is more dangerous than George Bush

Obama’s Big Mistake…Maybe?

September 15, 2008 4 comments

I dig Barack Obama. I can honestly say that I have no doubt in my mind who I am voting for in this year’s election. It will be Barack Obama. However, Senator Obama’s ego may just lose him the election. I don’t know much about Joe Biden and not much about Sarah Palin, what I do know is that the Republican’s are riding Sarah Palin’s coat tails at this time and it’s hurting Obama’s chances.

If Obama had picked Hillary Clinton as his VP, this election would be a wrap. PERIOD! McCain would just be running for show and he would have never chosen Sarah Palin as his VP running mate. Even if McCain did choose Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton would have wiped the floor with her. Hillary Clinton is a very intelligent and experienced woman and she has one of the best political minds on her side…her husband, Bill.

If the time ever came where Palin and Clinton debated, it would be a sad day for Palin. She knows that she would have been done for.

Ultimately, Obama’s ego and not choosing Clinton as his running mate may just cause him this election. I sincerely hope it does not. I believe that McCain and Palin will be so bad for America. McCain would be a good president for the War, but the economy. Palin would be a good VP for energy, but not the middle class. There are just too many variables that would be left to chance with a McCain/Palin administration and the fact that the McCain camp is sheltering Palin from the media really scares me because we know very little about her and how she thinks.

The upcoming debates will make choices much easier for many voters. I am eagerly waiting for them, especaially the Palin/Biden debate. I also believe that overall, Obama will pull ahead after the debates. People are hurting financially now and when Alan Greenspan says that Obama’s Plan is better than McCain’s, we really should listen. When analysts say that Obama’s plan will provide tax breaks to the middle class and only raise taxes for the wealthy, we really should listen. The wealthy are the people who make more than $250K per year.

It’s about time that the middle class gets a break!
