What SHOULD Matter?

So apparently size and more matters when it comes to anchors.

Check out Uncle Barky’s thoughts on the matter – interesting.

Do we really care who we hear who killed who from? A pleasant personality and speaking manner is all I require? What about you?

Folks visit the site. See what you think. Is it time change some thangs? Don’t get mad at me I’m just tellingitlikeit T-I-Tiz!

Generous John!! and the Giant Jet! off to Haiti he fleww…

Posted on

I have a friend that complains about how people only help when there is a crisis.  I have another Haitian friend who believes that Haiti will be used as a publicity stunt for many and lose its long fought for autonomy due to the earthquake.  It’s not the earthquake and restructuring he’s worried about it’s the ensuing non-military occupation of his home country that he’s worried about.

In the mean time John Travolta flew his personal Jet to Haiti with 4 tons of supplies, equipment, and physicians. That’s what I’m talking about.  Those that can DO!  While the rest of us either sit around and complain or wish we could.

This is not the first time he’s showed his generosity.  He flew his Jet to help those in need in the aftermath of Katrina as well. If we could all be so generous, this world we be a different place.

Way to go John!  I am now an admirer (never a fan!)

I’m just telling it like it T-I-Tiiz!

Air America Radio goes SILENT today – YOU LOSE.

Posted on

Air America Radio will have an extended moment of silence today. In other words, it will be permanently go OFF Air. It will no longer bring it’s listeners/supporters the alternative progressive news that they are accustomed to receiving since its debut in 2004.

After years of financial struggles and multiple owners, the radio station has concluded that it can not maintain its current financial status and is filing for bankruptcy. Having opened its doors in the RED, surviving the changing mediascape, in addition to an unprecedented economic downturn, the radio station was at best – a long shot.

Having turned to the radio station for its fresh presentation of the politics, I was shocked to learn of its fate. Although a neophyte, Air America Radio, seemed a fixture in our daily lives, as fixed as CNN or NPR. It was an alternative option providing us with some of the progressive voices we know best.

Not everyone thought so

I began to ask myself a question. How come all the hoopla because one company did not survive. In our capitalistic society it’s survival of the fittest. Air America Radio’s is just another company that didn’t make it.

There is more here than meets the eye:

What have we truly lost? What happens to freedom of choice when there is no choice? Air America is another casualty in a long line of casualties caused by the greed that has led to a recession worse than the Great Depression. Moreover, besides our loss of choice, it represents the slow ebb of life from our traditional media sources. Finally, it yet again, brings us square in the face with the reality of our current state of affairs. Air America radio is another good man down.

When the economic downturn reaches your door – you notice and you can ignore it. When it smacks you in the face – let’s just say you have to work a lot harder to ignore it.

I just tell it like it T-I-Tiiz!

Have a moment of silence for Air America Radio. It was good while it lasted.

This is hilarious!!

Please note for all you sensitive people:

This is done very tongue and cheek. There’s obviously a “special setting” or lighting issue being overlooked.  However, with advances in technology, you would think this would NOT be an oversight.

Enjoy!!!Please watch in the spirit of the video. If you leave anything to risque you will not be approved although I welcome your comments pro or con for the video.  I don’t like to censor… Just be easy.  Play like adults. :)

“Hit The Bitch” – A NEW Danish App?

Posted on

First. What do you think about a game called “Hit The Bitch?”  I want you to remember what feelings or thoughts it evokes.  Write em down whatever you have to do, just remember them.

Now…It’s the new Danish platform to promote awareness AGAINST domestic violence.

I first learned about this on Blogher while perusing the health section. Read the article tell me what you think.

There’s a lot of things that can be said:

Does it reach its intended audience? Yes.

Does it promote awareness of the issue? Yes. (look we’re all discussing and even outraged)

Does it promote awareness AGAINST violence? I’m not so sure…

When our younger community is NOT easily swayed by scare tactics or moved by statistics.  Is this the guerilla style tactic we have to resort to in order to reach this audience? Be realistic.  There are tv series about robin hood style serial killers and rogue plastic surgeons….

It’s definitely an “in your face” campaign and may be NOT to the liking of some or MOST folks.  If nothing else…it has people talking/buzzing?  I’ve seen other campaigns like the European Don’t lose your head HIV campaign…it was racy and controversial. (beware of pics before you click!) Even our super heroes have been used to get the message across!  Is this different?

I’d love to hear what teens think about it. What about Danish teens?

Here are some male thoughts on the matter:

What are your thoughts? By all means…let’s discuss.

I’m an OPERA fan! SWITCH TO OPERA~!

Opera is officially My NEW Hero!

Opera is officially My NEW Hero!

I have been struggling lately with lots of COMPUTER woes. My beloved Mac became sluggish.  I kinda’ figured is was due to the usage of 178 GB of used space on my 180GB hard drive.  Being the work-a-holic that I am, I still expect to be productive with GB and I expect my mac book PRO to hang with me during my spurts of productivity (actually these don’t come often).  Well….I couldn’t be productive b/c I STILL need a new External HD and well the MacBook just doesn’t like to have little to NO HD space.  So onward was the search to fix this problem.  The problem is further amplified by the need to research the problem on the computer!! The very same computer that needs an external HD and has only 2GB of memory that seems to disappear with the slightest bit of use.  My internet itself is invariably slow (part of the research) and Airport seems to be working ineffectively (or is it)?  The need to know WHY potentiates a vicious cycle of lack of Knowledge, deficiency of Hardware, and reduced Productivity I’d rather not repeat on a regular basis.  Well, hallelujah!!! in my painful Google search, I came across this one website with some useful tips: <a href”http://zenhabits.net/”   What a great website. I’m still not sure how I got there…maybe Zen found me (no really it had to). It’s a good thing too. Whew! Some of the stuff was a bit over the zen top…bookmarks? shortcuts?  This gadget girl with the small attention span would explore those things later.  Maybe. Hopefully, I’ll try those tips another day. However, the take home message I walked away with TODAY? the one I truly appreciate? …. is…..(drumroll please)……SWITCH to OPERA!!! and so I did. Right now I am enjoying my new experience freshly installed on the Macbook pro with only 2GB of memory left without any problems, Opera. I don’t know if I can get by without my plugins on Firefox and what about my delicious bookmark thingy?

Something can be said for trying something new. Maybe you should too.

I’m just tellin’ it like it Tiiz!!!
