via Car Talk, Quotes from Tom Magliozzi:

“It's only a car.”

"Do it while you're young.  You may never have another chance to do anything this stupid again!"

"Happiness equals reality minus expectations"

“How do you know if you've got a good mechanic? By the size of his boat.”

"If money can fix it, it's not a problem."

“Our Humility is what makes us great.”

“Reality often astonishes theory.”

"Life is too short to own a German car.”

“Kids: get away from the cell phones, get away from the computers, and mail someone a fish before it’s too late.”

“Non Impediti Ratione Cogitationis” - “Unencumbered by the thought process.”  Tom’s self-proclaimed motto.

“Never let the facts stand in the way of a good story"

"Some guy I met said it's amazing how we use cars on our show as an excuse to discuss everything in the world—energy, psychology, behavior, love, money, economics and finance. The cars themselves are boring as hell."

“It is better to travel in hope than arrive in despair.”

"If it falls off, it doesn't matter.”

"I like to drive with the windows open. I mean, before you know it, you're going to spend plenty of time sealed up in a box anyway, right?”

To our community of photographers: We're currently working to understand and resolve Sherwin Williams' use of our blog photos —your photos — on its website without permission. The "Chip It" service seems to be a strange interpretation of Pinterest. Full-size images link back to the blog, but the culling of images for commercial purposes is absolutely unacceptable to us, and we're working to stop the practice. Our blog and your photographs are protected by copyright, and we'll be enforcing it. Please bear with us as we wade through the details.

Once it's in social media its like a free-for-all.

You know it's bad when even the Suggest Bot is pushing Blue Head Dead profiles. As far as I can tell Dave hasn't posted anything in 18 months. Hey Matthew, I think you need to do some housekeeping.

Thought I'd do a mid-year clean-up of the local group. Blue heads and names on an empty box were the first to go, obviously abandoned. I guess the profiles are listed by how often they post. I started deleting names at the bottom from people that hadn't posted in over a year but quickly gave up. Like half of the Tucson Googlers fall into this category. OK, it's official, it is a ghost town. Too many abandoned profiles, many just placeholders with no posts at all. And a lot of people that had good intentions and kept up for over a year but couldn't deal with the overwhelming apathy and gave up. By my count, less than 200 are active in a metropolitan area of a million people.
  It does make me curious how other Southwest cities are faring. What's the membership like in Albuquerque or in Las Vegas? Can't say I remember ever seen a post from an Albuquerque member. I know of one person in Vegas but that's about it.

We can't have a frank discourse about rape until we can have an honest discussion about sex in this country. Victorian shackles restrain our thinking too this day. Presentation of the Kenneth Starr findings in the Clinton impeachment was a tiptoe through a minefield of taboos of what some may or may not consider obscene. The HBO's series, Real Sex, has featured people attempting to break these outdated barriers but the crucifixion of Surgeon General Elders for her attempt to even breach the topic of masturbation is a good example of how far we have yet to go.

A murder of crows met a manslaughter of grackles; the park was never the same.

 "Chattanooga-based photographer, Daryl Thetford, creates digital collages. "Branding Day at the Bird Ranch," a fun, brightly colored composition of a sunglass-wearing cowboy rounding up the flock of grackles at his feet. The cowboy was doing rope tricks in Fort Worth, Texas."
 "Thetford replaced his face with that of a friend (he liked the campiness of the sunglasses). One of Thetford's own hands stands in for the the fast-moving cowboy's blurred one."
 "Thetford photographed the grackles in a park on that same Texas trip. He added Chinese characters on their feathers and, in fact, words run all through the background of the picture, some in English, some in Chinese."
 "Other text was sourced from paper stuck on a gas pump, part of a circus sign and writing from a chalkboard at a produce stand. The large stars in the collage's top half were plucked from an old sign."

A recap of Frontline, the Generation Like episode

Depending on your age group you're going to see a completely different Facebook or YouTube than other people. From the videos that are suggested along the right hand side to the recommended posts to the advertising in your stream, it's all tailored to your demographic. One thing advertisers have figured out is after years of exposure to the come-on, people over 30 are not your prime market. They're too resistant. You have to get the kids hooked before they know better and the economy of Likes is the ideal way to turn the teen consumer into the teen marketer.
It's not monetary wealth that gives Facebook its value, rather its worth is based on the volume of Likes they can generate. It's the same social currency that powers Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and all the other platforms.
They visited a company called The Audience. They're a combination of talent agency, publisher, promoter and network all in one. They orchestrate a calendar of content to push their talent, complete with corporate integration. But they don't call it corporate sponsorship. Instead, they congratulate you on the fact that you found someone to fund your art.
They also featured Ceili Everdeen, a total Hunger Games fan. For the amount of time, hours a day, she was devoting to tweeting and re-tweeting Hunger Game content, she could have her own office in Hollywood making 70K a year. But instead she does it all just for a few Sparks, Likes and the outside chance an actor from the series will respond to a tweet. Clips from the movie were kind of a spoiler for me because I have yet to see any of those movies but they did draw some interesting parallels to social media. Surviving meant getting people to like you and people in high places were pulling strings behind the scenes.

I practically do half the route on my morning walk. I still see it as a novelty, like the old trolley, which I rode once.
