You stabbed the devil in the back. To him this isn’t vengeance, this is justice. If you liked John Wick, you’re going to love John Wick Chapter 2. The movie picks up shortly after the first movie. John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, is still angry, still out for vengeance and still, hell bent on getting back his classic Mustang. He’s physically healed from the first movie but, psychological wounds run deep. Wick is still a bad, bad, man. The Boogeyman as Assassin incarnate. And he might need some professional counseling for all that inner rage. At least he’s a got a new dog.Read More
You need a new handwriting font... Why not give Monirom Modern Redux a try? It’s free, 100% gratis. Yes, it looks a little bit like Comic Sans to the untrained eye, but it’s a completely different animal. Cleaner, less sloppy and more deliberate in the strokes Monirom Modern Redux is a version (one of several) of my handwriting. A vanity font if there ever was one.Read More
Originally written on the day after Father's Day 2009 — Republished 2010. I hope this missive is the prodding others need to realize that it's not too late to make amends. You can't choose your family but, you can choose to make the most of the time you have with them.
Forgiveness. Yesterday was the first time I didn’t feel guilty about forgetting to put a Father’s day card into the mail. For the first time in my life I didn’t need to make that call, to hear your voice, talk to you ever so briefly, before you would hand the phone to Mom — but, I wanted to.
That's why I'm compelled to write you this letter. I don't know how the universe works but, I have faith that you'll see it.
I never knew what drove people to write blog posts like, "Why I left Google" or "Why I left Apple" and in so doing put out one’s dirty laundry for all the world to see. If we've learned anything from this era of over-sharing it's that once it is out in the ether, it's there for perpetuity. Those embarrassing pictures, those innuendoes, those out of context unPC statements embedded in the cloud for all eternity.
Then I unearthed this personal gem from the end of the first dot.com boom (see below). It was sent out via company email since this predated Facebook, twitter and even google. (Yes I’m dating myself). After rereading the e-mail I was happy to discover I did not act rashly and, unlike the individuals, I didn't name by name in regards to the "Why I Left Google" blog posts, did not blame others for my departure.Read More
Q: Why are Mustangs made fun of worldwide, even though they are most likely the best selling American muscle car?
A: Mustangs are not derided worldwide as much as they are in the United States. The criticism is limited to the years when Ford took their eye off the ball and ignored the competition.
Exempting enthusiasts who souped up their cars, the Mustang is a “pony car” and by definition not a real muscle car.Read More
