David Sedaris reads one of my favorite essays (from When You Are Englufed in Flames) on This American Life where he visits a morgue on Halloween. His poem inspired by the photo of “extensive mold on the face of a recluse,” is not one to miss.

Happy Halloween,


Shawn Huckins is officially one of my new favorite artists. Thanks cavetocanvas - good stuff.

Ain’t no better concert venue than Songs at Mirror Lake in #lakeplacid! Willie Nelson’s son, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real.

This year, mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love and then speak it again.

I don’t like this expression ‘First World problems.’ It is false and it is condescending. Yes, Nigerians struggle with floods or infant mortality. But these same Nigerians also deal with mundane and seemingly luxurious hassles. Connectivity issues on your BlackBerry, cost of car repair, how to sync your iPad, what brand of noodles to buy: Third World problems. All the silly stuff of life doesn’t disappear just because you’re black and live in a poorer country. People in the richer nations need a more robust sense of the lives being lived in the darker nations. Here’s a First World problem: the inability to see that others are as fully complex and as keen on technology and pleasure as you are.

Happy birthday, America. 

This is disgusting. I hope their parents are as embarrassed as I am for them. When and if I have children, they better be the ones standing up to these kids and saying, “Pick on someone your own AGE - better yet, don’t pick on anyone at all.” I can only imagine what low self-esteem these kids have that they must resort to picking on a 68-year-old woman. Wise words for the human race from Karen Klein: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all - that goes for you, you insolent little spoiled brats out there in the world. The human race really makes me sick to my stomach sometimes. 

On a lighter note, I will be attempting to update my blog soon!


Follow-Up of the Day: Bus Monitor’s Abusers Suspended: Nearly two weeks after 68-year-old bus monitor Karen Huff Klein was verbally harassed to the point of tears, her four teenage abusers have received one-year suspensions from school and the bus.

They have been ordered to complete 50 hours apiece of community service with senior citizens, and they’ll continue their studies at the local “Reengagement Center,” where middle school students with behavior issues are kept on track.

Klein, meanwhile, stands to receive at least $667,000 in donations amassed online after the video of her abuse went viral.
