Upgrade Hell

Quick run down of yesterday's Mac chaos. Although I've considered myself immune to it over the years, I fell for Apple's distortion field--or as others might call it: upgrade hell. I don't know what happened. I think it all started when I upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite. It worked so well, so smooth, my digital (self) was flawless. Then, … Continue reading Upgrade Hell

Jimmy Carter: A Five-Nation Plan to End the Syrian Crisis – The New York Times

While worstwriter tries to figure out the meaning of birds tangled up in whatnot, our 39th president has a few things to say. Even though I'm not quite sure what he's saying, it's pretty amazing that he's still on top of things. Go Jimmy! Rant on. -t "Bashar and his father, Hafez, had a policy … Continue reading Jimmy Carter: A Five-Nation Plan to End the Syrian Crisis – The New York Times

Oh No. #Yahoo Sucks.

First. Full disclosure. I really dig Yahoo. And I don't mean no disrespect with this worst-post. With that in mind. I've been using Yahoo email ever since I lost my password for CompuServe back in the early 1990s. Which brings me to the following question: how can something that was once so good get so screwed … Continue reading Oh No. #Yahoo Sucks.

The Cherry Bat v. Coincidence v. Coordination

Is it me, dear worst-reader? Am I the only one to worst-write about conspiracies? Wait. It's important to note here--for the sake of posterity--that I don't worst-write about conspiracy theories. Reason? There's a difference, you know, between conspiracy and conspiracy theory. Just as there's a difference between coincidence and central planning--as in central planning of … Continue reading The Cherry Bat v. Coincidence v. Coordination

Now That's A Protest

The inevitable is at your front door. Perhaps not unlike the grim reaper. Remember the reaper? He came along just after you had the canned salmon. Nomatter. As I've stated here & there, TTP and TTIP are inevitable. Obviously protests like the one in Berlin will have some sort of effect on it but I don't think … Continue reading Now That's A Protest

A Photograph

"This vicissitudes of our century have been summed up in a few exemplary photographs that have proved epoch-making: the unruly crowd pouring into the square during the "ten days that shook the world"; Robert Capa's dying miliciano; the marines planting the flag on Iwo Jima; the Vietnamese prisoner being executed with a shot in the … Continue reading A Photograph

Nasty Rant Against Hillary Clinton Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things Or Maybe It's Something Else

Things fly by when one is perched upon a thirty-thousand foot expatriate stool looking down at the new-old world (order) with gusto and admiration and interest. Indeed. The show that is #americant politics is as good as any show there is. Yet some moments even turn my head--with or without The Donald. For the life of … Continue reading Nasty Rant Against Hillary Clinton Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things Or Maybe It's Something Else

VW says rogue engineers, not executives, responsible for emissions scandal

In the wake of all of today's economic chaos and a world governed as though it was a (bad-managed) corporation, people believed that diesel motors were "clean"? On that note. Did you know that Mercedes uses urine in their diesels to keep them clean? Gee. Anyone want to buy some south Florida real-estate from these German mangers? … Continue reading VW says rogue engineers, not executives, responsible for emissions scandal

Talking The Walk

What's that saying? Oh yeah. Walk the talk. Indeed. A tried and true American idiom. It is, in fact, a great saying because it goes so well with all the bullshit of consuming-to-survive in America these days--a country that for many is in a perpetual state of being caught up with buying your life from a … Continue reading Talking The Walk
