The season 1 finale of The Flash achieved truly Moffat-like levels of wallbangery. I mean, this show has always played fast and loose with science, and at this point I accept that's just part of the show; but this time around it's like they were actively going out of their way to have every single plot point be as non-sensical as possible, even just from the standpoint of internal consistency. I think the writers setup stakes they weren't willing to follow through on, then tried for a clever twist ending they weren't clever enough to pull off. There was more wrong with the episode than that, but it's just not even worth getting into. The finale was such a disappointing failure that I'm most likely just done with this show. I don't even care where they go with it next season at this point.

Rosewood looks like yet another "white male specialist partners with female (supermodel) cop" show, except... Wait, the male specialist isn't white!? They can't do that!

Look out iZombie, looks like you might not be the only progressive police procedural next year.

A word to the wise: Don't go eating people's eyes.
Dr. Ian Crozier, who survived an Ebola infection last fall, calls himself a poster child for “post-Ebola syndrome,” which is also being reported in West Africa.

Good stuff. It also extrapolates well to other creative work.

Congress just introduced legislation to “Fast Track” the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP. It’s a secretive deal, negotiated behind closed doors by government bureaucrats and corporate lobbyists, containing dangerous provisions (like SOPA) that threaten Internet freedom everywhere. Internet users deserve a say in decisions that affect us.

"The top 12 NY publishers put out about 5100 fiction titles a year.

"So, if you're the 1 in 13,000 that gets published, you still have to face odds of 1 in 26 to make the NYT Top 15 List.

"Altogether, the odds are 338,000 to 1 that you'll write a bestseller."

Ouch. Still, I guess it's better than winning the lottery...

After reading the post, I saw it was written in 2005. I wonder if things have changed? Still, sobering.

"No one should be asking what we’re going to do if computers take our jobs.

"We should all be asking what we get to do once freed from them."

The beginning of the end of labor as we know it is starting. This will fundamentally disrupt our existing socioeconomic system. Whether this leads to dystopia or utopia rests largely in the hands of politicians.

Yeah. I'm sure they'll make the right decisions.

My stylist was a girl with poofy pink hair and an undercut. I told her I wanted my shaggy hair cut short, but not so short as to show scalp. She set the clippers to number 6 and trimmed the back and sides. After a quick wash, she took scissors to the top and left it several inches longer than the rest of the hair. At the time I thought it looked okay, if not quite what I had asked for, so I deemed it good enough. However, after going home and getting a better look at it, I realized that it was very uneven. So, for the same price I had paid for one visit to this mall salon, I bought a pair of clippers at the store, and had my wife even things out. Now, I'm not sure if this was the absolute first time she'd ever cut hair, but it was definitely the first time she'd ever used clippers. The result? A haircut that was actually even. It looked way better than what the so-called "professional" at Mia & Maxx had done. If you need a simple, short cut, you'd be better off investing in a good pair of clippers than going to Mia & Maxx. And since they couldn't even do a competent job of something that basic, I wouldn't even consider them for anything more complicated.

The large space with an upscale feel creates a positive first impression, but it doesn't take long before you start noticing little problems: weak coffee and generally mediocre drinks; bland and forgettable decor; awkward furniture that's stuck between normal height and highchairs; large tables spread sparsely through the space are great for groups, but provide limited seating that will fill up fast as soon as this place starts getting busier. It's only real selling points are a pool table and the convenience of being right across the street from the Overture Center parking ramp.

Clean, open, well-lit, decent selection, helpful staff. They have awesome produce and a lot of natural/organic options, and the in-store hot Chinese/Italian/Kitchen/Salad Bar mini-food court is decent quality for what it is. Prices are extremely mixed, and seem to change almost at random; often an item will be 2.99 one day, then increase to 4.99 the next -- and it will sport a "Price Reduction" tag. Still, if you buy their store brands (Hy-Vee or Midwest County Faire) or their produce, you can often get a good deal. Just watch out for certain items (e.g., milk) that are priced ridiculously high.

Sadly, ERC is not what it once was. Their new space is cramped and they now steep tea too hot, resulting in a bitter flavor. If you're looking for a coffee shop downtown, I would recommend Barriques instead.

At the Starbucks inside B&N, while still standing a good ten feet away from the counter and in the midst of a conversation, the cashier actually INTERRUPTED us to try and sell us on lunch items. When we got to the counter to order, he tried to convince us to order larger sizes. When our drinks showed up, they weren't what we ordered. When we finally got the drinks we actually ordered and tasted them, I wanted to spit it out -- the Tazo Green Tea Latte tasted like artificial, mildly sweetened rotten grass. Stay far away from this place.

It's a fast food franchise specializing in sandwiches. A little pricier than other fast food places, and a little healthier, but otherwise no different. If you come here for lunch you probably won't regret it, but you probably will forget it.
