    Flight Or Invisibility?

    So...waht do you think?  Flight or invisibility?  I would go for flight, I think.  But there is an argument that people who chose flight really want to chose invisibility but have an obsession with nobility that they can't get past.  I don't know.  I do...

    No Need For Mtv's "trl"... I Have Npr's "tal"

    "This American Life" is literally something I just happened upon during a Saturday drive.  I was running from my place in Venice, CA to my friends down in Rolling Hills, CA.  It isn't a long drive but it isn't necessarily quick either. Definitely to short for a book on...

    I always find it funny when people like American accents seeing as I'm American. It always makes me laugh a little.
