My friend told me about this short video contest that SNL is putting on. We had already published this video a while back, but I figured it could make a fun entry in the contest. The final decision is left to the judges, but is heavily influenced by Facebook ‘likes’, so if you can spare a ‘like’, we would very much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance, and stay classy out there!
Dear people who support digital rights management,
Today I purchased the third season of a show I have become a fan of recently. I went ahead and paid a premium to get it delivered in full HD. It looks great on my Apple TV, but you know what happens when I try and view the videos on my older Apple 30″ Cinema displays?
Because my 2560×1600 Apple displays use DVI instead of the DRM-riddled HDMI interface, my media refuses to play on them. Is it any wonder why people like torrents? I understand why you don’t want to play the video that I bought on an unknown device – there’s no guarantee I won’t record it to some other source and distribute it to a mass audience somewhere else. But do you think this kind of restriction is going to make me want to purchase from you in the future?
I love the simplicity here.
Homes of Love hosted its annual Dance for Love fundraising party again this weekend at The Square Room. I forget why, but I missed it last year, and was excited to be able to make it this time around. I was not disappointed. It was the best one yet. If you know nothing about Homes of Love, you should have a look at their website and see what they are all about.
Homes of Love works in Southeast Asia and Africa to establish and maintain loving, small, family-structured homes for orphaned and at-risk children. HOL seeks to reach children before they are trafficked, sexually exploited or put on the streets. We take a preventative approach to these problems common to vulnerable children. We are committed to the holistic, long-term care of these children until they become independent adults in their society.
Fa-la-la-la-la. La-la. La-la.
Today I found a persuasive paper that I wrote back in high school. My school had blocked access to davidangel.net, which gave me the perfect subject for my paper.
“Met a lot of people but never knew them. Bought a lot of things and never used them.”

Almost walked into this guy tonight. Sheesh! I’m not a big fan of spiders. At all. From what I can tell, though, he looks a lot like a
Garden Orb Web Spider (Eriophora transmarina). Scratch that, I have no clue what this guy/gal is. I have seen far too many photos of spiders on google now, though. Sheesh!
