On a cold, rainy day in Jerusalem, I create a very comprehensive YouTube playlist of my favorite (the good & bad) of Mystery Science Theater 3000. It turns out it is more than 132+ hours of continuous MST3K... what a marathon!!

It begins here. Please to enjoy :

The Obama "Compromise"

Hope & Change masquerading as More of the Same?

I have just emailed the President(Obama) @ the White House website, approximately how I felt about his 'compromise' over the continuation of the Bush tax cuts. Verbatim :

"I feel pity for the millions of Americans who believed you had the answers to every ill America faces, but sadly my foreign point of view and cynicism proved me right yet again. I wrote about it during the midst of your inauguration ceremony or should it be more aptly known as your coronation ceremony. ( 

You are a poor poker player and have showed your cards too early. You have compromised for no gain or followed down a scripted scenario. To get ourselves out of the situation we are in, WE MUST ALL contribute. Why liberate the rich from their share, right at the time when their prosperity can help us all(not to mention that we helped them out when they needed it)? If we're all in this, why do they get a comfortable pass as others give more than they can, more than is "comfortable"? If you actually care about the majority of Americans that supported you in the election, there is NO WAY you can follow through with the proposed 'compromise'. Calling it a compromise is an ugly & cruel joke. I will encourage my elected representatives to challenge you on this, even if they are members of the same political party you profess to represent."

Matthew Modine spotted in front of Chelsea Market (9th Ave)

A man is talking to Matthew; I'm not sure anyone was listening in between keeping the bicycle steady and checking his phone.

Life or something like it

What do they say about the best jokes?

The best ones mix a little bit of truth with a little bit of exaggeration.

This one was not written by me but it does express much of the situation I am currently in; brought to you by The Oatmeal :

Why working at home is both awesome and horrible

I will never understand people

Apparently while I was watching Inception @ IMAX,I got a text from an unknown (347) phone number :
                              'Hi daddy'.
I checked my address book and it's not listed.

Text back with "who is this ?"
By the time I got home, there was still no response. I decide to call and see if it's someone messing with me.

"Hello..." the phone responds after 2 rings.
"Ha ha ha, this is a recording." Blah,blah,blah.
The rest I will paraphrase : ha-ha-ha, it's my voice mail you dumb ass, leave a message.
So I do. I tell them about text they left and that they probably got the wrong phone number and to work on their texting skills.

I received a phone call, within the last hour from said individual.

"Hello", I answer. Silence.

Again I say "HELLO??". Silence.
Then a whimpering "hello...".
We go through that back-and-forth sequence about 2 more times before I decided to get to the point :

"Who are you?".

She mocks me by repeating my query. At which point I tell her that she text me and I left a voicemail telling her she got the wrong number.

I could tell she was confused.

I then read her text back to her, which she responds with:
"Oh.. that must have been my friend Briana."
I respond, "Yeah. Well I'm guessing you text the wrong person. And I just wanted to let you know." Silence.

She hung up on me.
No apology, not even an acknowledgement of understanding.

To those who know me, I have had reactive responses when it comes to negative "situations". In the wisdom that has come with my years on this miserable blue planet, I now go to my friends for advice. What is the appropriate response in this case? Whats should I do? No answer is out-of-bounds. Surprise me.
