LOL LOL +Ted Rall 
The politically correct tried to kill the sexist, racist, homophobic classic humor of yesteryear, but Ted Rall won't let them. Try these jokes on for size.

Hmm. Well said. Not much bravery involved in shooting a captive, even if it is Osama bin Laden. 
Navy Seals killed Osama bin Laden, Seymour Hersh says, when he was in Pakistani captivity. Like a fish in a barrel. Yet Seal Team Six still manages to hang onto its hero status. What is up with that?

Read this article, fittingly, just minutes before my birthday begins. Great, crystal clear and lyrically written piece on how not to fear dying, based on extreme rationalist and existential principles. Love it. Thx for this ...
The price of ambiguity is high, yes. But what does it have to do with eliminating the fear of dying. Everything, says our staff existentialist Jason Dias.

LOL, a funny but not too cruel rip on Don Draper. HA! gs 

gs +Ted Rall 
Ted Rall salutes Don Draper, who he wouldn't recognize, and Mad Men, which he never watched. But he's keeping the option open. You know. Like voting.

Man. Despite its title (lol) this is the best review of #exmachina  i've seen yet. By far ... 
There are a ton of naked women in the new movie "Ex Machina," but none of them are real. Jason Dias reviews this intriguing new film, a Turing-esque exploration of tech, sexuality and sentience. Scroll to the bottom to check out the film trailer.

Best #madmaxfuryroad   review I've seen yet -- and it's hilarious, too.  LOL cc +John C. Dvorak +Ted Rall 
In "Mad Max: Fury Road," 5 bizarre things that were able to survive this latest apocalypse. Tina Turner didn't. But Clairol did. Find Jason Dias' borderline-vicious Mad Max review here.

What a day to sing the blues. B.B. King is gone for good. Because B.B. always said "life is for the living" and hated dwelling on death, we won't either. We're just going to collect your favorite B.B. YouTube tracks here. Send me your favorite links with your name and a message. Or paste the…

BB was boss. Saw him three times. Even in his seventies (last time I saw him live) he blew the slicker pop/ hip-hop/ "soul"  "American Idol" tripe out of the water.

Sigh. BB will be missed.

However, he's up there gigging with Jimmi, SRV and Art Blakey right now. I hear the concert's gonna be banging!

Story
Tagline
Founder/CEO, aNewDomain, founding EIC of HTC's BreakingModern.com, NYT best-selling author.
Introduction
I cringe at the idea of media sites and big companies getting the editorial content they need for their sites from ad agencies. So my mission is to provide a far better alternative. I have gathered a team of some of the best journalists, columnists, photographers, videographers and artists in the world. 

Launched by John C. Dvorak, Jerry Pournelle, John C. Dvorak, Ted Rall and me, aNewDomain is a cohesive team of journalists.  We helped start CNET, Wired, ZD Net and E3 -- we relaunched BYTE in 2011, co-launched Dell's Tech Page One in 2012 and now staff and run HTC's killer millennial content site, BreakingModern.com. 

Ping me if you're interested in joining the team -- or if you need a stream of great content. +GinaSmith
