If information were edible I’d have put on about 1000 pounds in the past year. The newspapers, the TV, my family, friends, even people standing in line at the grocery store have so much that they need to tell me, AND ITS VERY IMPORTANT! IT’S SO IMPORTANT THAT IT’S ALL IN CAPS AND THE FONT SIZES ARE SO BIG I …[ Read More ]

  I never told you about the time I ate Fred the goldfish. Fred was Karl Needlemeyer’s goldfish, who we usually only watched swimming around his little goldfish bowl as a kind of silent protest whenever Karl’s mom told us that we were getting “too rambunctious” and it was time to go outside and play.

In The Cloud

Tag this entry:

More and more of my life is in the cloud. I’m not sure what the cloud is, or why the geeky powers-that-be have decided my life needs to be in it, but I know that from now on everything important that I do, say, write, listen to, or photograph will be stored up there, right beside ten million videos of …[ Read More ]

My generation is having yet another seriously embarrassing problem, and it has nothing to do with hair loss, erectile dysfunction, or laxative-laced yogurt. Many of us do not understand how to use our TV sets. My wife is a representative victim of this problem.
