Down with Critics

Lately, Lisa and I have been going to the movies without reading reviews. She shocked me Friday night by bringing me to see Solo! A Star Wars prequel! I didn't even know that's what we were seeing. I just said "You pick any movie, I'm there." I've gone to hundreds of...

Facial Recognition

Been a little busy last two days. As I type this, I am staring into Siri's eyes. Or eye. I wouldn't have given that a thought, if not for the story circulating today that the Chinese Government is using facial recognition technology to troll for fugitives at pop...

Semi-Handy

I've spent most of a lifetime pretty useless at basic handyman skills. If oil needed changing, a room needed painting, or a household item needed a repair, I was lucky enough that I could hire someone to take care of it. Time was an important factor. But it wasn't...

Attention Hacking

Every performer you watch is there for two primary reasons. To express themselves, and to hold your attention. Whether it's a band, a juggler, or a teacher speaking to a class, the only way to measure performance is to multiply the numbers, and the quantity of time...

Howard Stern

I was mentioned on his show today. I got a text from my brother Richard: "Howard Stern mentioned you a bunch this morning." Huh. Hope he ripped on me. "Not really. Talking about Hall of Fame thing." Thx. I'll have to get a clip of that. "He rips on the National Radio...

TV is Dead. Long Live Video.

I can't tell you the last time I watched a TV commercial. Maybe it was the Super Bowl. Lisa and I binge on Netflix, Amazon, Showtime or HBO. No commercials there. And there's a virtual buffet of great programs. We will never catch up. Even though Comcast is our cable...

Could LSD be the next Medicinal?

If fake news were an actual thing, instead of a political cliche, I'd doubt the story I read today in the Wall Street Journal. I used to subscribe, but I canceled because it was just too expensive - and the Washington Post and New York Times have adjusted their...
