I consider myself a NOBLE DESPOT

A ruler with absolute power.

And the lord said, let there be light. And so it was there was light.

I have not been around lately (due to School). Originally I intended to discontinue blogging but I have decided to take it up again. This time with a better organized idea behind the posts I make. I am thinking about having a daily theme to update on and reflect about with denizens of the internet.

I am for the first time reading the Bible, and as what some refer to as nonbelievers, it's a different experience for me than say if I were raised in an actively religious household. This and other reasons have inspired me to return to Blogger, at least for the time being.

-One of my ideas is to post scripture and historical information about the writings or it's author(s)
-Another (and this is what I would typically do) is to repost and talk about Science in the modern age
-Posting about what I have read in the book "Origins and Evolution of Religion" by E. Washburn Hopkins, a deep text about the different ideas of spirituality in history BCE and CE.

I haven't fully decided how to approach transforming my blog into one or more of these three ideas. I'll respond to feedback and make a decision soon.

I am rather happy to return to the Blogosphere though and look forward to finding more people to interact with through this medium.

Changes coming soon.

A lovely Saturday afternoon. More to come later, for now

Know anything about music?


Found this on 4chan, thanks to someone with a little effort and a strong knowledge of music theory

*I didn't make this!

To wrap up the day, the Onion reveals

Justin Bieber Found To Be Cleverly Disguised 51-Year-Old Pedophile

Cable is doomed and our kids can't stop shooting each other

Saw this coming a while back when I worked at Blockbuster.


Of particular interest to me (quoting from the article linked above)

"Earlier this month, Apple announced that its revamped Apple TVs would be going for just $99 (older versions were $229) and started offering $.99 rentals on TV shows. Google TV, set for release this fall, will turn traditional TV sets into web browsers — and let viewers search for (and watch) the expanding range of television options available online. Netflix's streaming video service, Watch Instantly, is growing rapidly, and has reportedly inspired Amazon to jump in with a similar offering. "Netflix has already won the digital TV/Video War" says Paul Verna in Ad Age. A new Credit Suisse study found that 37 percent of Netflix subscribers between the ages of 25 and 34 watch Netflix streaming instead of TV, while 30 percent of subscribers between 18 and 24 have have ditched their cable TV."

What I don't know is the future of TV. Are people going to be integrating all forms of entertainment into computer systems or even PHONES? I can feel my nostalgia for simpler times bubbling.

Also did anyone hear about that shooting at UT Austin? What the hell?

Just another day done.

I figured I'd post something thoughtful but nothing is coming to mind. I will say that I am very anxious to begin school and establish what I consider to be my ideal living situation. I've waited long enough (about 4 years) to return to school so what's another couple of weeks?

I think I'm going to begin posting in such a format that every couple days I can point fellow bloggers to productions I find either informative or entertaining. Today I am pleased to refer you to a special I recently viewed on HBO about an American's look into the culture and philosophy of Al-Qaeda.

My Trip to Al-Qaeda

I'm a fan of looking at world events from multiple perspectives. If you're curious about some of the lesser known details of what's been plaguing my country for 8 years. It's an award winning presentation.
