The Problem With Wikipedia, Part 3 [Mar. 2nd, 2008|09:26 pm]
For many of the teeming masses who spend their free time editing Wikipedia, contributing to Jimbo's grand storehouse of knowledge isn't just a hobby -- it's a way of life. Nowhere is this more clear than in the confusing and often disturbing culture that's grown up around this once-promising project like some kind of horrible fungus.

Red tape lurks herein.Collapse )

The Problem With Wikipedia, Part 2 [Mar. 2nd, 2008|08:00 pm]
Now that we've painted a somewhat less than flattering portrait of Wikipedia's headcheese, let's take a closer look at the unwashed legions who enforce his will: the Wikipedia admins.

Profiles in Courage this ain't.Collapse )

The Problem With Wikipedia, Part 1 [Mar. 2nd, 2008|03:09 am]
Let's make no bones about it: if you use the internet, there's a fairly good chance that you use Wikipedia. Some of you may even use it on a daily basis, because god only knows that it beats even Google in the casual disbursement of information.

Wikipedia's supporters tout it as a revolution in human learning, and the idea is certainly a seductive one: a grand repository of knowledge compiled by the collective minds of humanity, tirelessly updated by volunteers around the globe to continuously remain on the cutting edge of information. The reality, sadly, is far less appealing than the idea; less the sum of man's wisdom, more the canvas for an exceedingly high volume of poop-slinging between cabals of overly bureaucratic shut-ins with delusions of grandeur and people with actual academic credentials confounded by a labyrinth of red tape. Wikipedia the "encyclopedia" has long been outstripped by Wikipedia the apparatus, a nightmare of baroque procedures and committees, of Orwellian gibberish and seemingly contradictory rules enforced by those least qualified to be in a position of authority.

In short, it stinks.

Fortunately for you, I'm going to tell you exactly why.Collapse )

You Don't Know Nic [Aug. 6th, 2007|10:14 pm]
Thanks to his winning performances in blockbuster movies like The Rock, Con Air, Ghost Rider, and National Treasure, Academy Award winner Nicholas Cage has become a household name in America, one of that rare cadre of male actors capable straddling the divide between action schlock and Oscar-winning drama. But even hardcore Cageophiles would find little to love in Deadfall, a 1993 revenge/thriller that managed to waste a cast headlined by James Coburn, Charlie Sheen, and Peter Fonda through sloppy direction and a script that happily criss-crosses the line between outright ludicrous and idiotic.

So it's saying something when Cage's acting overshadows every other rotten thing about Deadfall by a landslide -- Cage doesn't simply overact, but taps on some crazed reservoir of primal ham, some unholy crossbreed between roid rage and alcoholic stupor that simply must be seen to be believed. So, without further ado, here's Nicholas Cage -- just two scant years before winning his Oscar for Leaving Las Vegas -- as Eddie, the "lively" pill-popping crazyman you'll have to drink to forget.

Fair warning: those with squeamish dispositions may want to skip Eddie's close encounter with the deep frier at the end of the second video. Copious swearing also means this exhibit is cheerfully NSFW. Enjoy!

I Am Facing Foreclosure IV: Casey in Court [Jul. 20th, 2007|11:45 am]

Mark continues to THREATEN ME and now sends me this STUPID EX PARTY CRAP!!! Especially when I was ASKING FOR SOME TIME TO COOL OFF!!!!!!!
I had NO INTENTIONS OF BACKING OUT!!!! But it was already a stressful situation. When both you guys threatened me I seriously felled like i’m being bullied since I told Mark I will be OUT FOR A FEW HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If our hero sounds close to total meltdown at this point, it should be no surprise -- in the past month, life in Caseyworld has been far from well.

Justice is sweet, and the proof's within.Collapse )

When Cover Versions Go Bad [Jul. 18th, 2007|11:02 am]
Three bands. Three cover versions. Three tone-deaf lead singers. One predictable end result. Listen entirely at your own peril.

...uh, yeah. [Jun. 13th, 2007|01:42 am]

Shop? Joke? Elaborate hoax gone horribly wrong? Or possibly... an unintended sneak peek at Mr. Serin's much-ballyhooed publishing venture? Judge for yourself. I personally like the 'Volume One' in the upper right corner there -- more chilling words were never written.

I Am Facing Foreclosure III: Casey Down Under [Jun. 12th, 2007|12:25 pm]

"No, I did not leave my wife penny-less and run away to Australia! It’s amazing how some people are trying so hard to sabotage my efforts to make an honest buck through my story/publicity."

Just when you think the Casey Serin saga can't get any weirder...

...well, it does. Collapse )
