About

Hi.

Thanks for reading my blog, and for wanting to learn more about me.

I’ve never been any good at talking about myself so I’ll just put up some random stuff I’ve heard people say about me in different settings, like when I’m at the grocery store or walking down the street. I think it’s best if I let the people speak.

 “Absolutely brilliant!! One of the finest minds in the world!!!”

“Most nights he doesn’t even feel like going out but after about eight or nine drinks, he can usually manage to have a good time.”

“Stunning! Breathtaking!”

“Hey, he EARNED that chip on his shoulder!”

“He’s got the chiseled physique of a Greek god!”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s running this company someday.”

Just kidding. All the above quotes are totally made-up. Except one. Can you guess which one?

There’s so much more, but you’ll have to learn the rest from reading the blog. Actually, that’s really about it. Not much more here.

But come back often anyway, and remember to leave comments.

  1. Through the power of the internet, it’s nice to say hello to a long-ago DC neighbor. Hello from your Lamont St. Collective neighbor. Awesome blog! Happy New Year. The Naughties will be over and what will the new decade be called? What would you deem it?

  2. I love ur blog but most the quote: I think the natural resources of a country should be used to benefit the people of that country. Unless, of course, those people happen to live in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, or really anywhere outside Europe. In that case, those natural resources should be used to benefit wealthy corporations based in Europe and the United States.
    it’s been my facebook status for today.

  3. Hey!

    I’m loving your site…just started working here at SnagFilms and am saw that you have a section linking our films! So awesome…thanks! Shoot me an email if you get a chance so I can tell you about some other new titles we’re getting in and how we can work together and maybe get some additional traffic to your site.

    Take care!

  4. Hey, I like your blog because it is intelligent most of the time. In the case of the white teenagers from Pennsylvania killing the Mexican immigrant, what do you say about immigrants coming to this country killing innocent Americans for nothing more than greed or ignorance? Why does the Mexican drug dealer get off the hook with you? Why dont blog about that? That incident was stupid in Pennslyvania, but how many times does the same thing happen in California?

  5. Hi Abdul!

    I stumbled upon your blog and I had a very mind-opening experience while reading your posts. Its so bad to know that people who are full of unrequited hate are still so much ‘alive’ everywhere.

    Be back again so keep writing!

  6. Hi there,

    Myles here from Sneak Attack Media, an online media company in NY. We’re working with a very cool company called SnagFilms who are offering full length, award-winning films in the form of a widget—meaning that you can actually embed this little player into your website and offer these films directly to your readers for free. (Snag was just written up in the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and USA Today!)

    We have searched the web for sites we think do a great job covering the topics that are also the focus of some of the films. Since there’s a natural fit with your site, so we’d like to invite you to open one of the first SnagFilms theaters with the captivating documentary, Africa Unite.

    This film widget will of course help you attract and retain visitors (thus increasing your site traffic), but they also benefit the community. By showcasing this growing library of inspirational films, you will support an independent filmmaker and vital causes, while also increasing the time spent on your site by your readers, and adding another reason for new readers to visit.

    The SnagFilms widget basically turns your website into a free online theater, with real films. The SnagFilms movie player does not require a desktop download like other movie players but instead efficiently streams the films. All expenses, including streaming costs, are covered by SnagFilms and there is no additional load on your servers.

    Please check out the just-launched SnagFilms website here: http://www.snagfilms.com

    Below is a bit of info on the film as well as a link to check out the trailer (and the actual widget with instructions on how to embed them.) Please feel free to contact me with any questions at all.

    AFRICA UNITE is a singular and masterfully executed film by Stephanie Black that is at once concert tribute, Marley family travelogue, and humanitarian documentary, igniting the screen with the spirit of world-renowned reggae icon BOB MARLEY in its every frame. In commemoration of Bob’s 60th birthday, AFRICA UNITE is centered on the Marleys’ first-time-ever family trip to Ethiopia in 2005. Includes rare footage of Marley.

    To embed AFRICA UNITE,
    1)visit http://snagfilms.com/films/title/africa_unite/, 2) click SNAG on the SnagFilms widget
    3) Click EMBED
    4) click COPY and then simply paste the code into your site!

    Again, please feel free to contact me with any questions at all. I hope we can work together to bring this compelling independent film to your readers!

    Best,
    Myles

  8. Hi tasha,

    Thanks for reading and for leaving a comment.

    I apologize for not having responded to your comment. I’ve gotten bogged down with work and a couple of other posts have been monopolizing my time. 🙂

    My short un-researched answer is that I think it’s part of a concerted effort to discredit and intimidate journalists from covering the war objectively. This too ties in with our own prejudices, of course. I doubt it would have been so easy to detain a French or British journalist. 😦
