The UnSaavy, Technologically Speaking

Is it just me or do some people just not get it? People sit in front of a computer all day long and yet they don't know how to do the simplest of tasks on it. How is that? It's like owning a car but only being able to drive in reverse! Help me out with this one. I went to church on Sunday (I know, I know - rest assured I'm not having a crisis of faith - I was forced to go) and the pastor guy said computers were created by Him, and not the good Him, the bad Him. Even my father, a man who only recently gave up his prized tape player, thanks to a very expensive gift from yours truly, has embraced computers. When he travels with my mom, he makes her bring her laptop so he can surf the net and work on his book (a completely different story). If my dad, who kills bugs with his bare hands, can work a computer, why can't people who spend most of their working lives in front of one learn?

That's enough for now but I'll probably have more to say after I go see Madam Ruth, the psychic, at lunch. Good times!

When all else fails, do something unusual! Posted by Hello

First Time Ever

Everyone and their dog is a blogger, so why not me? Plus, I'm basically a blogger all the time, minus the online part. Inane thoughts about everyday subjects that are at best halfway witty and kinda clever and at worst lame and recycled. Either way, I'm there man! This blogging thing is not so much a new endeavor as a new medium.

I'm going to use my new medium to encourage two new things I've found recently: Veronica Mars and The Shins! Both are so kickass I can do nothing but encourage people to experience both of them. Veronica Mars is a tv show (if you didn't know already) and she rocks. I wish I were half as cool in highschool, which I soooo wasn't. And The Shins - can there be a better band? If you've seen Garden State, they sing the song Natalie Portman's character tells Zach Braff's character will change his life. In the doctor's office. Remember? I'm not sure they'll change your life but New Slang (that's the song she's talking about) is a song that expresses frustrations and hopes in a way I can completely identify with. Hopefully you can, too. I'll send you the mp3 if you want to hear it.

Okay, that's enough for now but I can't wait to do this again!
