Tailor Made (A Poem)

A Poem Banner

I left my frisbee in your bushes, I’ll be back another time
I’ve been cruising somewhere near the Saratoga line
From my understanding, you’ll be doing fine
And I’ll always have my hometown memories in my mind

Pretty sure you had a big bash, I could see it from the sky
For just a little girl I’m not sure I understand why
You’re going to need an entourage, everywhere you go!
I dropped everything you know!

You haven’t exactly been accessible
And your appetite’s insatiable
Your mansion is historical
But you are still untouchable

Tailor made, I’ll call your bluff! Continue reading “Tailor Made (A Poem)”

Madman Across The Water, Influencer #7

Elton John - Madman Across the Water

“Hello Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Some things they really just never get old
It’s the laughter I feel coming from my mind
Old memories these days aren’t hard to find!”

– Mark Urso

That’s a quote from my record. I put it here just in case, you know just in case Elton, just like I memorized his … might want to memorize mine! Continue reading “Madman Across The Water, Influencer #7”

Nothing Great: The Dropbox Story

The economic forecast for the computer cloud industry calls for rain. Except over the Dropbox application, where it will continue to be sunny and pleasant!

dropbox logoToday’s blog is about Dropbox, a retail application that shines in a very cloudy space in the world of the Internet.

Many people probably don’t know why Dropbox is the winning application to solve hard drive and syncing needs for more users than … (I don’t actually know this, but you can look it up if you want; this is a “do your own research” piece).

If you’re a techie, you know. If you’re a stock analyst, maybe not. That’s like a doctor not knowing why his patient is so healthy!

It’s simple. But you have to do one thing that the Dropbox people don’t require you to do, and which many people don’t do … to experience the invisibly near-perfect app Dropbox really is. Continue reading “Nothing Great: The Dropbox Story”

Some Things Are Not Black Or White (or, Why The Show “Blackish” Is Probably Not Funny, Except I Didn’t Watch It)

just words

How about that show “Blackish?”

It’s a TV show. National.

As you might imagine, I don’t watch it. Really, I only watched a few minutes, and only to confirm in my overheated brain the concept is really what it is.

I feel like I’m going out on a limb, but this is a show named “blackish” because it’s about a group of people who are black, but look kind of like white people … like Obama. I didn’t make this up. I’m just saying it out loud.

It amazes me sometimes the dim wit of creative people Continue reading “Some Things Are Not Black Or White (or, Why The Show “Blackish” Is Probably Not Funny, Except I Didn’t Watch It)”

MANATEES SUE SESAME STREET

Dear Blog Owner,

As a courtesy to you, I’m sending you this copy of a letter I recently sent to Sesame Street:

“While we understand the snuffleupagus character was probably intended to cast an inspiring educational light on our magnificent species, and continue to encourage the industry to make more movies with manatees in them, we feel offended by endless stereotyping of manatees as stupid or comparing us to the much different and less intelligent snuffleupagus.

MANATEES THREATEN IPR CASE

Dear Blog Owner,

It has come to our attention you’re considering naming your band “Manatee Revolution,” which we manatees find offensive, and vow to do things to stop. Manatees are tired of being objectified and having our charm and looks used commercially without our consent.

We also wanted to tell you we formed a committee to organize a fact finding mission to Cancun. Continue reading “MANATEES THREATEN IPR CASE”

Xarelto Versus Bruno Mars

just words

I’m an audio guy. I’ve always been involved in audio, from my radio days to the present; I eventually couldn’t think of anything better to become than a musician!

I’ve always thought fondly of audio. I watch video and listen for the audio. I whisper to my cat. The two of us listen to the birds, crickets and wind.

I have audio cables hanging out of boxes in my house like wysteria. Continue reading “Xarelto Versus Bruno Mars”

Don’t Like Reality? Change It! (A Meditation)

just words

silly puttyReality is like silly putty, meldable and tolerant, like a children’s story that never grows old. And though every moment we interact within a society-bubble, the human magic carpet ride is a personal experience. If you don’t like it … you can show us how to make it better!

We have two realities: the one happening right now, the current and present … and the reality of our memory, an assemblage of events colored by time; shelved, prioritized and recreated at the speed of real time in the wisp of a thought.

Your life is like a big snow globe full of memories. Continue reading “Don’t Like Reality? Change It! (A Meditation)”
