Paratransit Travelogue

I should have written about these adventures long ago. It is something of a secret world, these Para-Transit adventures of mime. Let me explain with some background first. Para Transit services are available in Broward County, Florida where I live. PT services enable people like me, people with disabilities that prevent them from driving a…


Lisa’s Facebook Hell, Part 2

Ok, a big relief here in Zhenland as Lisa’s Facebook problem seems to have been solved. For real this time. As you may recall in my earlier post (here: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/note.php?note_id=243171100520), we had some success logging on to her account last night, however brief. Shortly after logging on, we could no longer get in, receiving the…


Lisa’s Facebook Hell

This story begins with a warning: Make sure you have registered MULTIPLE EMAIL ADDRESSES with Facebook. And make sure that at least one of your email addresses is from one of the big email providers, like GMAIL, HOTMAIL, YAHOO etc. Why? Because this nightmare could be yours. Pass this around. Share it with others. And…


SONG: Winter

Someone once told me that all songs are either about love or death. Ok, I’ll take that. It applies to me to some degree, as my writing as drifted across both of these subjects. Sometimes, the idea isn’t obvious as I really like to bury things in metaphor. It is a challenge I like to…


Number Stations

I admit I am a cryptography geek. Ever since I was a little kid with that first pen filled with disappearing ink, I’ve been enamored with codes, ciphers, ring settings and their hidden secrets. I really find things like the Enigma project and the Navajo code talkers from WWII very fascinating. I think in many…


VIDEO: The American Pixel Part 2

I really never planned on this song or video. I especially didn’t plan on it being a part of the “Dust of the American Pixel” release. But here we are, a month from the official release of my long awaited, long worked on epic work of self-indulgence, and this video is now an integral part…


The Green Challenge

You all know I am a big advocate for the idea of “green” racing, specifically, using racing as a platform to accellerate the various technologies that can help us live in real life more efficiently and intelligently. No matter your stance politically, the idea of an “Energy Technology” based economy may be one of the…


SONG: Melanoma

As far back as I can remember, music has been a savior of sorts. When I had troubles as a kid, I could crank up the stereo and cast my fears and doubts off into a universe of expression channeled through bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Later, as I began to play and…


Seeing the Imperfect Candidate

My initial thoughts on this blog entry were going to center on the racial challenges facing the nation as it comes, at large, to grips with the prospect of Barack Obama as President. Essentially, the issues and views on the issues held by Obama would make him a very attractive candidate to me in an…


That’s How I Would Drive…

It’s not how Kyle Busch gives an interview, or comes across on television. It’s that I say to myself: “That is how I would drive a race car.” NOTE FROM 2020: This marks the day I became a Kyle Busch Fan!
