  • Very frank talk on Conservative Media from a conservative

    Frank talk about the interests of governance vs. conservative media in David Frum: Waterloo: I’ve been on a soapbox for months now about the harm that our overheated talk is doing to us. Yes it mobilizes supporters – but by mobilizing them with hysterical accusations and pseudo-information, overheated talk has made it impossible for representatives…


  • The Sky Above The Port

    The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel. (image via suddenly and crossposted to Nueva Ciudad)

  • Lyrics of the Day; Dialogue of the Day

    Don’t Forget Your Old Shipmates: Safe and sound at home again, let the waters roar, Jack. Safe and sound at home again, let the waters roar, Jack. Long we’ve tossed on the rolling main, now we’re safe ashore, Jack. Don’t forget yer old shipmates, faldee raldee raldee raldee rye-eye-doe! We have worked the self-same gun,…

  • “I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.”

    One of the funniest and most referenced lines by Leah and I from Mean Girls. I think we reference it to avoid the practice. It reminds me of one of my favorite Confucian dictums: “If I am walking with two other men, each of them I will serve as my teacher. I will pick out…

  • Goodness Knows Why

    Quote of the Day, from Film Director Peter Jackson I mean, personally I think that’s one of the most depressing things about the film industry generally today. The writers and directors should be blamed just as much as the studios because really everything seems to be a remake or adapting a 1970s TV show that…

  • Quote of the Day: Jason Zweig

    What A Bear Market Might Teach Us is well worth reading. So I know what it means to scrimp and save, to do more with less, even to do without. The most important lesson that I learned, I believe, is that money is not wealth. Benjamin Graham once wrote that the secret to happiness is…

  • Quote of the Day, and More Bruce Sterling

    From Bruce Sterling: When you get to the future there’s just more future ahead of it. From the audio interview at Massive Change. More: On the WELL and always on his blog.

  • Quote of the Day

    “You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream — the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order — or down to the ant heap of…

  • Disdain for $

    I like this… “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that…

  • Quote of the Month

    The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual. It should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity. If there is any religion that could cope with the modern scientific needs,…

  • Quote of the Day:

    Via We’re all those things right now that you’re not supposed to be. Our management always goes crazy, ’cause we all tell how old we are, and we’re not ashamed of the fact that some of us are in our mid- to late-30s. The L.A. Times did an article on us, and our management almost…
