Who is Stephen Colbert?  Colbert is a sharp and very funny person, but I don't think I've ever seen him do anything "as himself" he's always playing, well, Stephen Colbert, the satirical caricature.  Will he step out of character for the talk show and give us a person we've barely met?  Seems risky since his fan base loves the character and barely knows the man.  I suppose all public television personalities give us a kind of exaggerated persona to relate to, is that persona the person CBS is hiring? Or will Colbert reinvent himself?

I'm a big South Park fan so on a lark I pre-ordered the new South Park video Game The Stick of Truth, it arrived yesterday and when I discovered it was going to be a turn based RPG my first reaction was disappointment.  I've never enjoyed that style of game play, and greatly prefer more action based first person shooter style games like last years favorites; Tomb Raider and Last of Us.  

Aesthetically given the 2D nature of the South Park universe I think it would have been difficult to come up with any game style that would better complement the world visually.  But what really makes The Stick of Truth is a pretty deep RPG system that somehow manages to be quick, intuitive and fun.   The Stick of Truth single handedly redeems the old school RPG format for me, a great game!

Why not get paid to play?  
Apparently sites like Facebook make a ton of money earning ad dollars when their users use the site.  Imagine an alternative Social Networking site that paid it's users a percentage of the ad revenue.  Would you jump ship from Facebook or Slashdot if you earned money for simply using the site?  How long before users demand a piece of the action?  Just enter your Bitcoin wallet address in your user settings and off you go.

SNL takes over late night Network TV.

I was never a fan of Jay Leno and rarely watched Fallon on his Late Show, but I tuned in to the Tonight Show the last couple nights to see what was going on.   Seth Myers is taking Fallon's old job, along with Fred Armisen leading the house band.   Last night Kristen Wiig showed up and it became clear to me that what we're looking at here is a kind of coup d'état.  Fallon is sort of the perfect Jack of All trades.  He can grab a mic and sing, dance and crack jokes with the best of them, all the while being humble and likeable.  But the real victory here is for Lorne Michaels.  If these shows succeed Michaels will have taken over NBC late night television.  He will have an incredible 8+ hours  a week for exposing his cultivated talents.

If you didn't already feel like a fool for buying a Keurig coffee maker, here is some more evidence that your overpriced coffee maker was a scam. Just throw the damn thing out and get a coffee pot already.

Why do people subject children to needless risks?  I know why colleges do it, they want to make money on the backs of young slaves^^^^^ students who feel immortal.  But why do parents continue to allow minor children under their care to put their brains at risk to play a game?

"_Protection against concussion and complications of brain injury is especially important for young players, including elementary and middle school, high school and college athletes, whose still-developing brains are more susceptible to the lasting effects of trauma_," said study co- author Frank Conidi, MD, DO, MS, director of the Florida Center for Headache and Sports Neurology and Assistant Clinical Professor of Neurology at Florida State University College of Medicine in Port Saint Lucie, Fla. Conidi is also the vice chair of the American Academy of Neurology's Sports Neurology Section.

Story
Introduction
Spending a lot of time not meditating

Poet, Philosopher, Computer geek.

In the Geek realm I mainly do old school IBM mainframe programming, I am one of the last great COBOL programmers. This is actually true if you want to hire me! I also dabble in web stuff and just about any other aspects of computers.

I am working on attaining enlightenment in this lifetime so I have lots of free time spent not meditating!

I enjoy tai chi, photography and music especially classical guitar and shakuhachi flute. If you want to hear about those things drop me a note so I can add you to the appropriate Circle.
