One man, Ryan McHenry created a bunch of vine videos that showed Ryan Gosling. In these videos he attempted to get Ryan Gosling to eat some cereal, yet he never did. The video is below.
Ryan McHenry has died of osteosarcoma. To honor him, Ryan Gosling has made a Vine video. In this video, Gosling pours some cereal, holds up a spoonful in honor of Ryan McHenry, and then he eats the cereal.
I've never been a huge fan of Ryan Gosling, but I haven't disliked him for any reason. However, this gesture put him into the "Nice Guy" category. You can donate to the Sarcoma UK that is raising funds to research osteosarcoma.
I'm not a fan of Death Metal by any means. But this is quite funny to watch and listen to. Now, if it were just the musical portion, it would definitely be something I could listen to.
This is a Rant from Jason Calacanis. Thing thing to remember about what he says is that he states that fanboys are the ones who think Apple can do no wrong. There are plenty of us that think Apple is a great company, makes innovative products and is pushing the market. Yet, we're the ones who are also willing to criticize Apple when they make a mistake.
Here's the Web 2.0 Bubble... also a good Web 2.0 Primer
New Media Douchebags....
Ok, It's been six years since "9/11". The thing that bugs me most, is the lack of coverage this week by the Media. I did see one story earlier, but that was it. Nothing else. I find this tragic. The price paid by the New York Fire Department and the New York Police Department on that fateful Tuesday is unforgettable. Seeing those Two Towers in flames is something that many will never forget. I've purchased books, I have the papers and the like from that day. Forgetting is not an option. The innocent people who also lost their lives will not be forgotten by their families. The other thing that I find tragic is the fact that we still have a corrupt regime running the country. Some fallacies that have been spewed by the idiots, Weapons of Mass Destruction, "Terrorists are going to attack us", Saddam, etc etc...
Now, I won't say that Saddam was a saint, he certainly wasn't. However, given the current state of Iraq (Read fucked), I'd say he was holding everybody in their own separate corners and maintaining some semblance of order within the country. Now, of course "we" (Read republicans, AKA BUSH & CHENEY), have to go into Iraq and destroy the shit out of it, and pour billions and billions into the damn place and what has come out of it? I mean, yes there are parts that are being rebuilt, but we have billions in wasted tax payers money.
The monetary cost is dwarfed by the human life cost. And no, not just American and British and other Soldiers. I also mean the innocent Iraqis who have given their lives because they were caught in a battle that they didn't start, yet they were the ones who truly suffer; along with the families of the victims. Don't get me wrong, I think that American and British soldiers giving their lives is tragic, and I can't begin to imagine how the families feel, however, nobody concentrates on "the other side" or as the war mongering assholes, Dickless Cheney and Bush, call them "terrorists".
Now, onto the American people. They make me sick, I don't see any action to get Dickless and Bush out of office. I think as though these two should be tried for war crimes. End of story, I want to be on the Deciding Jury for that one. In other words, WAKE THE FUCK UP and see what shit is going on around you. Yes, I realize that we're all very fucking busy, but you know what, We need to take care of this country and get some decent damn health care for all first, make sure our economy is strong (meaning how about we make some shit in this country instead of getting it from overseas), and how about we have a complete reform of the whole damn political system.
On the political system, here's my thoughts. Take the politicians out of Washington, D.C. Force them to live in the jurisdictions that they serve. 5 Day work weeks, 10 hours each day, minimum. Get rid of Pork Barrel spending. Divide up funding based on need. Meaning, If the state has a majority of corn farmers, they get the majority of the subsidies. Force ALL representatives to be fully accountable for all of their spending. They are alloted a set amount of money to run their offices, standard of living is taken into account. Enact a law that says ANY lobbyist found to be attempting to bribe a representative instantly, no questions asked gets 10 years in Jail, their companies fined ten million dollars. All of that money goes to libraries to help educate our children. And what about the politicians, if they're caught, 25 years in jail, their offices closed within an hour, and a special election taken to find their replacement.
Next, force ALL politicians to work the same jobs and hours as their constituents. And I don't just mean for a day, I mean for a year before they are even allowed to take office.. Force them to live on those wages and see whether or not it can be done. I think they'll get the picture real quick. Additionally, CEOs should partake in this exercise too, using the payrate of their lowest paid worker as the pay.
The Final thought for today is that all politicians should have some working knowledge of technology and how it operates. They don't need to know all of the details, buy having those who represent us know how to use a computer, work a webcam, post on youtube, and even be able to run their own fucking blog. No, they don't need to know how to write their own website or do their own graphics. But Need I remind you of Ted 'Tubes' Stevens of Alaska. It is never too much to ask our representatives to have a basic knowledge of what the young generation is doing and capable of doing.
I have many more ideas of which some will like, some will hate. I've said this before, probably not on this blog, but don't make me president, CEO or any other position where I could do some real damage, cause I will. Feel free to leave comments (you must register, trying to combat comment spam).
