True Confessions Friday:: I’m a reformed name dropper.

You know how “they” (whoever “they” are) say that the things we dislike most in others are the same things we dislike about ourselves?  I would agree that statement is partially, but not completely, true.  Today, dear friends, I am going to confess, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know and sometimes it’sContinue reading “True Confessions Friday:: I’m a reformed name dropper.”

So something cool happened today…

I hate shameless self-promotion…I really do. But this is an instant in which it is necssary–today I am a guest blogger at YPULSE.COM, perhaps one of the coolest, if not the coolest site for youth media/culture on the Internet. I just sent in an idea and it was accepted, so if you’re interested in guestContinue reading “So something cool happened today…”

Tom Cruise Scientology Video

A few weeks ago Tom Cruise did a very bizarre interview about his beliefs on scientology.

Since the unholy alliance, FNN and TMZ have become bed buddies informing the public aboutContinue reading “Fox News Turning Into Gossip Rag”

Golden Compass Pointing Straight to Controversy

I’ll admit that I don’t know a lot about The Golden Compass or all the controversy supporting it.  Although I was asked to join a boycott group against the movie by several on Facebook.  I saw a trailer for the movie when I went to see Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix  (yeah, thatContinue reading “Golden Compass Pointing Straight to Controversy”

Does Al Qaeda blog?

That’s the question on my mind after I read this article about Al Qaeda’s considerable web presence.  The terrorist group now has anywhere from 5,600 to 17,000 websites with as many as 9,000 new ones popping up each year.  It’s hard to track the web activity of the group, because like their leader Osama binContinue reading “Does Al Qaeda blog?”
