I help a friend out sometimes who has a small startup. I hang out with the desktop support crew there sometimes, they are a stressed out bunch of macho geek’s who smoke cigarettes and eat the wrong kinds of food, all with knowing nod towards Star Trek and pc gaming.
These guys are the under appreciated grunts of the IT world who keep the servers, switches, routers and end users computers going.
Kill City is one of my favorite albums of all time. I would say that it is in my list 75 albums all time. The original vinyl record was green.
Iggy recorded this album in 1975 while on weekend pass from a mental hospital he was going to quit his drug addiction.
I see Iggy’s kill city as a bridge catharsis from his unsustainable drug(heroin) induced lifestyle to his next stages of art/life and creativity.
I don’t know if it is because many journalists are frustrated writers, but it seems when one of their brethren writes a book they tend to give it rave reviews, and tend to hold writers like William Vollman, and Graham Greene in high esteem to name a few writers that were former journalists.
PS I think Graham Greene is one of the greatest writers ever.
I wonder if same elites and economic interests that have been defining this form and phase of Globalization for the last 15 years are still in charge of the direction the process ?
I wonder if the rise of Germany expansion of EU along with rise of BRIC countries has changed the calculus in any way?
Debt ceiling talks are a big scam to cheat the American people out of their Social Security and Medicare.
Rating Agencies like moody’s in bed with Wall Street.
You didn’t hear any of this talk of debt ceilings when wall street was getting it’s bailouts.
Does there really have to be a winner? I picked the Android because that’s what was available to me, and I am falling in love with it, it is like a little Linux box. Very cool.
According to Zbigniew Brezezinski A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the worlds three most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia wold almost automatically entail Africa’s subordination, rendering the Western Hemisphere and Oceania geopolitically peripheral to the world’s central continent. About 75% of the worlds people live in Eurasia, and most of the worlds physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath it’s soil. Eurasia accounts for about 60 percent of the world’s GNP and about three-fourths of the world’s known energy resources.
I am studying the Python scripting language and I am reading the book by Zbigniew Brezezinksi titled the “The Grand Chess Board” from 1997 very good book.
These politicians are putting on a fake dance just like WWF wrestling all in a scripted scam, to reduce the Americans peoples access to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
I really liked the look of this building, read somewhere on the web that it was built in 1909 ..makes sense cause it looks so cool..
