Looking for LA County Library Card Number (updated)

Looking for LA County Library Card Number (updated)

I’m looking for a library card number for the County of Los Angeles Public Library system. I actually want to use the online digital loan feature at overdrive.colapublib.org, so if anyone doesn’t use that and wouldn’t mind if I piggy-backed on their card please email me. Thanks! Okay, I don’t want anyone to get in [...]

Looking for Demonoid inivitation…

Looking for Demonoid inivitation…

I don’t suppose anyone out there can score yours truly an invite onto Demonoid? The Pirate Bay just ain’t what it used to be… ain’t what it used to be… ain’t what it used to be. UTorrent is still the tool of choice — make sure you get the single-executable version 1.6.

The 12 Most Annoying Types of Facebook Users

The 12 Most Annoying Types of Facebook Users

I swear that I wrote this CNN article re-posted below. It is true like the Bible. True like math. True like jazz (although not Don Miller’s politics, which are NOT true). I fear that if I were to widdle down my Facebook friends by removing anyone who resembled one of these annoying folks — and [...]

Maybe the Girl Should Be Roasted In the Oven?

Maybe the Girl Should Be Roasted In the Oven?

I can barely find words to express the disgust I have for people who torture animals. This article covers the story… Cheyenne Cherry, a 17-year-old non-contributing zero, breaks into an apartment with a 14-year-old… trashes the place… destroys furniture… steals DVDs… and kills a kitten in the oven!?! WTF!? After her court plea deal she [...]

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You [...]

A New Addition… Sawyer

A New Addition… Sawyer

My posting has (again) been sparse… but with good reason. I have a new addition to the family! Our little Sawyer was born a week ago today, and has thus far been consuming much of our time with poop, sleep, crying, and cuddling. We wouldn’t trade him for the world!

So Long USAA Credit Card

So Long USAA Credit Card

After 15 years using a USAA credit card I canceled it today simply because the “specialist” on the phone – Erica Valadez – treated me like I was nothing but a number. Ummm, people are beating down my mailbox to give me credit cards with cute gifts or 0% for a year… and you think [...]

What’s happening with Negative99?

What’s happening with Negative99?

It’s no secret… I haven’t blogged in a month!? Blogging as a personal tool for expression has waned in the shadow of Facebook, Twitter, and any number of new digital tools of personal mass-communication. Unless someone can blog full-time as a profession or committed hobby it is difficult to maintain steady and meaningful content… making [...]
