Succumbing to laziness, no more…?

I’m not quite sure what’s going on but in the past few days, I haven’t really been in the mood to actually think up new material to post. I’ve got one idea in mind that’s been hanging out between my ears since before I even moved. So, it’s been in the works for about three […]

More on the state of journalism

As you may know, I’ve been looking at the state of journalism since I began this blog. Mainly because as a journalist, it affects me almost directly. Well, in my last post, I discussed the idea of a bailout for journalists. I’ll admit that it’s not perfect and it has its fair share of flaws […]

When it comes to alienation, I’m something of a prodigy.” -Joe Goffman No statement better sums up the plot of Jonathan […]

The All-American Rejects’ cover of Britney’s “Womanizer”

The funniest video I’ve seen this year. Although, 2009 is only 12 and a half hours old (here in Idaho, at least), so there may be other who will take its place. But I think it’s going to be a tough one to beat. My favorite part is the accordian at the beginning and the […]
