2 reasons not to read the chicago tribune online

Posted by Nathaniel

After not having viewed the Chicago Tribune online for quite some time I was disappointed with the two articles I read tonight. Both contained glaring typos that any simple spell check or proof read should have caught. On top of that, each click of the mouse generated an ad pop-up that had to be closed […]

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, There May Still be Hope

Posted by Nathaniel

If you read this and happen to be my brother, you’ll understand. If you aren’t, read it anyway and lobby everywhere long and hard for such a vision…And continue to thank your lucky Stars that George Lucas had the creative sense (or was it lucrative sense?) to step aside from the galaxy he created so […]

sex dominates elmo

Posted by Nathaniel

As someone in the midst of studying, and very literally at the moment (in the other computer window) writing about Catholic Moral Theology the subject of the below link is very appropriate and also very disturbing. Disturbing to me that our society (read, American society) still gets worked up about other people’s sex lives. For […]

This scooter has been in roughly the same spot for quite awhile now. I assume it moves some, but one never knows. If you look at the seat, the mirror that came off has been sitting there for at least the last month. Of all the things that get stolen in Chicago, it amazes me […]

Craving some Crazy Spicy Eggs from Kitsch’n on Roscoe. Gotta spend the extra buck fifty and get avocado with it. Add a cup of Earl and you are all set. Wish I had a pic. Will have to go back soon to get one.

I feel like Wedge Antilles

Posted by Nathaniel

Can you imagine how Wedge felt when Luke told him he couldn’t do any more good back there? That’s pretty much how I feel about life right now. I don’t mean to extend this sentiment to all of my responsibilities. Certainly as a father I know the good I am doing and will continue to […]

oh netflix

Posted by Nathaniel

Why won’t you let me search for DVDs, even if I don’t have a DVD plan? How am I to be enticed to upgrade if I can’t salivate over what you have that I can’t access at this time? You’re lack of DVD search for steaming only plans doesn’t compel me to pay to search, […]

It is time to leave Afghanistan

Posted by Nathaniel

The American military should be immediately withdrawn from Afghanistan. Drone strikes in foreign countries should cease. These two statements lack reasons on my part. I’m not interested in lengthy discourse at this time, rather I only wish to state my position with this brief entreaty. War is meant to break, to destroy, to maim and […]

Is it too much to ask…?

Posted by Nathaniel

In a previous post I tore down the notion of ‘dictionary’ that permeates our digital creative world. Now, I wish to add something to the mix. Within Microsoft Word 2010 (I’m not sure if this functionality is usable in previous versions or not) one can utilize the built in Dictionary both as a spell checker […]

When did dictionary become merely spell check?

Posted by Nathaniel

While I should ostensbily be working on my grad school homework for the MACD program I am enrolled in at Marquette, I must pause and offer an insight which just arose as I was doing said homework. To functionally manage my work load I rely on a few key tools on my laptop, an msi […]

@petedominick Intellect and Politics

Posted by Nathaniel

I was listening to Stand Up with Pete Dominick on Sirius/XM yesterday or the day before and I caught the tail end of a conversation about political leanings in this country. The basic topic seemed to be about whether or not people really exercised thoughtful contemplation about either the political process or the reasons they […]

Reading Into It

Posted by Mr. Scientist

By:  Mr. Scientist I read a recent article in the WAPO and it got me thinking.  One idea the article references concerns the way that everyone, kids in particular, gather knowledge in today’s world.  In the United States at least, the internet is nearly ubiquitous.  If we want to know something we just go to […]

Redbox = Cheap

Posted by Nathaniel

So the above is true in more ways than 1. And I myself, am pretty peeved about it. I got a movie last night from Redbox. Admittedly I used a promo code but by getting the Blu Ray version they got 30 cents out of me. The process to find a movie was easy, the […]

What is you R2?

Posted by Nathaniel

I told Mr. Scientist last night that this would be the title of my next post. I didn’t have a topic to go with it then but one soon found me. We were talking on the phone as I drove home and soon after stating this as the title I stopped at Walmart to get […]

A word to websites

Posted by Nathaniel

If I visit your site, don’t force me to interact with a lightbox before I can do anything else. Seriously, this is more annoying than Urkel.

laptopscreens.com

Posted by Nathaniel

Many thanks to latopscreens.com. A few weeks ago I dropped my laptop while setting another person’s laptop (safely in a box) down in my office. My laptop (while closed) landed directly on the top/front edge. Visibly there was no damage however when I powered the machine on the damage became clear. There were multiple spider-web […]

If White Castle went away, would anyone notice?

Posted by Nathaniel

I drive by a fair number of White Castle restaurants each week. Without a doubt these are the most drab, boring and unappealing fast food restaurants out there. If I have a chance I’ll take some pictures. But really, I’m not going out of my way. So the first two sentences and the title naturally […]
