I woke up late and called Kobalt immediately, I was surprised he answered (it was 8.05). ‘I am so sorry Kobalt, I overslept!’, I said. in an out-of-breath and clearly running voice he replied: ‘Dad, I am headed for the car. I totally know how you feel - I overslept too!’ Like father like son, I love that kid.

i miss the fucking tigers.
I never had a tiger in my life, but I know I miss having them there. I am sure of it. Why? Because Tigers made tomorrow the best god given day of your life - you just hoped you got to see it. The stagnation and boring routine of modern life is dragging us into lethargy - *we* (you and I) are the zombie apocolypse, the walking dead. Our routines are filled with drudgery, only spiced by the...

hey amber rae: The Unconventional Dictionary →
this chick rocks. although I would like to propose this correction: anxiety, experiencing failure early => experiencing the perception of failure early. heyamberrae: I propose a new kind of dictionary.

attention - the new currency online
When I ran my previous video company, this was my motto. Many would ask why paying for video service is so important when they could use youtube for free. Well if you are delivering a message, paying (either time, money, or both) to get in front of someone - you better be sure as hell that you are the only one talking to that user when they get there. Youtube is not conducive to that. Click...

In a post earlier this afternoon, I asked if anyone had run across a helper to generate one. two schools of thought arose: the first was that a business plan was laughable, the second was more of a stringent stare like ‘if you don’t know how, then move on’. I still think that plans are...
is there a simple business plan builder app...
looking around, all I see is subscriptions and downloadables. is there a site with an interactive builder?
when did a ‘subscription’ become a ‘paywall’? ya know - back in my day kids, we had to pay for good information. but you only want what’s free. and now you have gawker. you get what you pay for, and changing the name dosen’t make the people on the other side any different. Journalism costs money. caugh it up or make decisions on poor reporting and speculation.
