Some people presume I lack ambition. This doesn’t particularly bother me, since they are mostly people who have made a snap judgement based on the very little information available to them. Why would they think such a thing? MOSTLY, it’s because I’ve had Funkanatomy up and running for four years now and I haven’t really …

I love my alternative career even …

Joseph Gordon Levitt got married earlier this year and quite a few people took it upon themselves to break the news to me. One particularly vicious one was in the form of a tweet a  person directed at me, where they went “HAPPY NEW YEAR” and linked me to the article talking about the intimate …

So I’m reading this book which is set in like the 1100’s (safe to say that in THOSE days, today’s snail mail would be what instant messaging is to us today) and among a lot of other stuff – power, greed, REVENGE!!!The rise of the clergy, and church building – it traces the story of …
