S-Town is the new podcast from Serial and This American Life (I highly recommend both shows, especially season 2 of Serial) that chronicles… well, I’ll let them tell you:
JOHN DESPISES HIS ALABAMA TOWN AND DECIDES TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. HE ASKS a reporter to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But then someone else ends up dead, sparking a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man’s life.
Guns take a life in America every 16 minutes. Enough is enough. I know the NRA is one of the most powerful lobbies in Washington (if not the most powerful), but this is ridiculous. It shouldn’t be easier to get a gun then it is to get a driver’s license. It’s time for some Australian styled gun control. Email your representative in the House and Senate to tell them you want gun control NOW!

I’m a fan of screenwriter Max Landis (Twitter handle @Uptomyknees) and a few weeks ago, it occurred to me that I could probably follow him on Twitter, so I did. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised he’s a frequent Tweeter, but brother, can that guy ever Tweet. He’s the Tweetest Tweeter whoever Tweeted.
If you use WordPress for the backend of your site, you should be familiar with the spam content feature because if you do any traffic at all, you’ll get spam comments. They’re not always this obvious – they’re usually more of the, “Hello, this post is very informative and I will be sure to bookmark it for future reference” or something like that, but with lower grammar standards. Then you get these, a keyword stuffer from the late 1990s, selling a product that’s totally irrelevant to the post. Read the rest of this entry
