Mostly everyone knows about Dave Chappelle and these crazy stories about him quiting his show on Comedy Central and well just going to hiding. So finally he comes clean on Oprah. (Serisouly on a side note why does everyone do Oprah after some crazy crisis in their life? Is it in some contract or are her goodie bags really that good? Oprah is turning to the Jerry Springer of celebs. Oh and I wonder how she reacted to “Dave gets Oprah Pregnant ” skit).

So back to Dave. After reading this quote:

Chappelle clarified that when he left the show, dysentery “I wasn’t walking away from the money, women’s health I was walking away from the circumstances, arthritis ” he said. “I was feeling overwhelmed, and some of it felt like as if this was happening deliberately.”

I recalled the Chappelle Theory which discusses how a group calling themselves Dark Crusaders consisting of Oprah, Bill Cosby, Louis Farakan, Rev Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, and Robert L. Johnson. Who were against Dave’s anti black comedy and it was taking their struggle back 50 years. So they worked on destroying him mentally unless he stopped with his “anti black” humor.

Any truth to the “theory”? Is Dave doing Oprah as a redeeming thing to her and the Dark Crusaders?

I found my CD case that had some CDs that I thought were lost or missing. Was really annoyed with their disappearance cause I wanted to share a couple and also really had a craving for them. One of them is Space Hog – Resident Alien.

I had this on tape back in 1995 and when I first went to the US I made sure I got it on CD. I just love this album one of the few I can listen forever on repeat adn know every song on there. I been sining it like a fool in the car for the past two days.

I just love the beat and the feel for the album it is a fun album to listen to and hte lyrics and music just match it right. Listening to it again after all these years brings back some good memmories. One is seeing them live in Dallas. That was great got two tickets. Well I always get two tickets to shows, no rx
one for me and the other for someone else that will join me. I recall I met some other big fan of theirs online she was from Austin or just out of Dallas by Austin and we met at the show and traded some info and were up front on stage singing every word with the band.

It is always great going to see a band that you just love and knowing their lyrics and singing along. It is a fun experience. One that I miss being in Kuwait.

Some of my favorite songs from the album

With all this hate going around the Muslim world it is time for some love and nothing makes hate go away for love like a good laugh. One site that I enjoy visiting for a laugh and really puts a perspective on the Muslim world is Maniac Muslim. This site is well just funny in so many ways and I really can’t just pick one so check out the articles he has written. Well actually I think I can pick one: Shoe Thief Still at Large.

Here is a snippet from it

Other mosque patrons bring their non-Muslim friends in the shoe area to keep an eye on their shoes during the prayer. “It’s a win-win situation for Carl, visit my non-Muslim friend.” said Pervaiz, “He gets to learn more about Islam through the khutbah and at the same time my shoes are safe.”

People always ask me what the future of blogging may be and my response to them is, remedy “It will be dead in a couple of years”. This answer always brings up emotional reactions from the people asking me since they themselves are heavy bloggers. They often quote random new media phrases and ideas of how blogging is a form of expression as well as other media hype.

At this point I usually just say nothing, physiotherapy not because I am wrong, but because if I try to explain my perspective they just wouldn’t understand. I have decided, instead, to write my own perspective here.

Let me define one thing first: I see blogging as an active enterprise in your life. Blog posts don’t come out of the blue; you actually have to sit behind a computer and write something, and then hit publish. It requires a blogger to actively do it.

When I say blogging will be dead in a couple years, I mean that the activity of actually writing something down, sharing a picture, or passing along your links will become passive:

They will just occur on your syndicated site.

I have mentioned this before, but the future is all about syndication and syncing. One of the latest examples is 30Boxes. It is a simple calendar app, but how integrated it is, and how easy it is to create a date is just the start. I only have to write “Lunch with Mo at 1pm Thursday (at Nino’s) tag open” and that entry will be created. Moreover, depending on whom I choose to share this info with, the chosen friends will be able to access it through a syndication feed and sync up with my life. Since I tagged it as “open,” I am saying it is an open invite. That way, my friends accessing the feed can choose to join or to create another event afterwards, such as “Coffee *at Caribou Coffee) after Nino’s at 6pm Thursday tag open”.

This system of ease also works with pictures. Most of our phones are camera equipped but if we want to share these pictures we have to actively do it by taking the picture, choosing it, uploading it, etc. Imagine now if all those steps were moved to just one. You just take the picture. Automagically, it is uploaded to your “Picture Sharing” site tagged with the date/time, and GPS coordinates.

Now just to make it all meta. So I am with Mo at Nino’s at 1. My calendar has that noted, and I took some pictures while I was there. It will all get synced. Those pictures will have descriptions of “Lunch at Nino’s,” and based on who added that to their own calendars will have their names attached to it, and will be able to access those photos.

There wouldn’t be any active process in syndication, it would be all passive. The more things move, the more synced they will get, and the more syndicated it will be. Syndication is the key here. It is also a passive way of visiting websites. I access most of my stuff via feeds. Blog posts, news, pictures etc come to me. I don’t have to actively visit site by site.

So when you remove the action out of blogging, it isn’t a blog about your life anymore.

It is syncdicating your life.

Saw the most amazing rain storm at 4:10. I was up before it started and I just stood by my open window and watched. It was Nature at its best. Lightning, remedy
thunder, order
and rain pouring down hard and fast, cure with a light and sound show to match. You could hear and see the thunder and lightning come closer and closer as it continued slowly down it journey south. The lightning move away further and further and the sound of thunder quieted. Around 5 is when I stopped seeing its distant flicker.

Lost my T key a while ago. I got it replaced with a white on from an iBook.

Mostly everyone knows about Dave Chappelle and these crazy stories about him quiting his show on Comedy Central and well just going to hiding. So finally he comes clean on Oprah. (Serisouly on a side note why does everyone do Oprah after some crazy crisis in their life? Is it in some contract or are her goodie bags really that good? Oprah is turning to the Jerry Springer of celebs. Oh and I wonder how she reacted to “Dave gets Oprah Pregnant ” skit).

So back to Dave. After reading this quote:

Chappelle clarified that when he left the show, dysentery “I wasn’t walking away from the money, women’s health I was walking away from the circumstances, arthritis ” he said. “I was feeling overwhelmed, and some of it felt like as if this was happening deliberately.”

I recalled the Chappelle Theory which discusses how a group calling themselves Dark Crusaders consisting of Oprah, Bill Cosby, Louis Farakan, Rev Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, and Robert L. Johnson. Who were against Dave’s anti black comedy and it was taking their struggle back 50 years. So they worked on destroying him mentally unless he stopped with his “anti black” humor.

Any truth to the “theory”? Is Dave doing Oprah as a redeeming thing to her and the Dark Crusaders?

I found my CD case that had some CDs that I thought were lost or missing. Was really annoyed with their disappearance cause I wanted to share a couple and also really had a craving for them. One of them is Space Hog – Resident Alien.

I had this on tape back in 1995 and when I first went to the US I made sure I got it on CD. I just love this album one of the few I can listen forever on repeat adn know every song on there. I been sining it like a fool in the car for the past two days.

I just love the beat and the feel for the album it is a fun album to listen to and hte lyrics and music just match it right. Listening to it again after all these years brings back some good memmories. One is seeing them live in Dallas. That was great got two tickets. Well I always get two tickets to shows, no rx
one for me and the other for someone else that will join me. I recall I met some other big fan of theirs online she was from Austin or just out of Dallas by Austin and we met at the show and traded some info and were up front on stage singing every word with the band.

It is always great going to see a band that you just love and knowing their lyrics and singing along. It is a fun experience. One that I miss being in Kuwait.

Some of my favorite songs from the album

5. Space Is The Place
With all this hate going around the Muslim world it is time for some love and nothing makes hate go away for love like a good laugh. One site that I enjoy visiting for a laugh and really puts a perspective on the Muslim world is Maniac Muslim. This site is well just funny in so many ways and I really can’t just pick one so check out the articles he has written. Well actually I think I can pick one: Shoe Thief Still at Large.

Here is a snippet from it

Other mosque patrons bring their non-Muslim friends in the shoe area to keep an eye on their shoes during the prayer. “It’s a win-win situation for Carl, visit my non-Muslim friend.” said Pervaiz, “He gets to learn more about Islam through the khutbah and at the same time my shoes are safe.”

People always ask me what the future of blogging may be and my response to them is, remedy “It will be dead in a couple of years”. This answer always brings up emotional reactions from the people asking me since they themselves are heavy bloggers. They often quote random new media phrases and ideas of how blogging is a form of expression as well as other media hype.

At this point I usually just say nothing, physiotherapy not because I am wrong, but because if I try to explain my perspective they just wouldn’t understand. I have decided, instead, to write my own perspective here.

Let me define one thing first: I see blogging as an active enterprise in your life. Blog posts don’t come out of the blue; you actually have to sit behind a computer and write something, and then hit publish. It requires a blogger to actively do it.

When I say blogging will be dead in a couple years, I mean that the activity of actually writing something down, sharing a picture, or passing along your links will become passive:

They will just occur on your syndicated site.

I have mentioned this before, but the future is all about syndication and syncing. One of the latest examples is 30Boxes. It is a simple calendar app, but how integrated it is, and how easy it is to create a date is just the start. I only have to write “Lunch with Mo at 1pm Thursday (at Nino’s) tag open” and that entry will be created. Moreover, depending on whom I choose to share this info with, the chosen friends will be able to access it through a syndication feed and sync up with my life. Since I tagged it as “open,” I am saying it is an open invite. That way, my friends accessing the feed can choose to join or to create another event afterwards, such as “Coffee *at Caribou Coffee) after Nino’s at 6pm Thursday tag open”.

This system of ease also works with pictures. Most of our phones are camera equipped but if we want to share these pictures we have to actively do it by taking the picture, choosing it, uploading it, etc. Imagine now if all those steps were moved to just one. You just take the picture. Automagically, it is uploaded to your “Picture Sharing” site tagged with the date/time, and GPS coordinates.

Now just to make it all meta. So I am with Mo at Nino’s at 1. My calendar has that noted, and I took some pictures while I was there. It will all get synced. Those pictures will have descriptions of “Lunch at Nino’s,” and based on who added that to their own calendars will have their names attached to it, and will be able to access those photos.

There wouldn’t be any active process in syndication, it would be all passive. The more things move, the more synced they will get, and the more syndicated it will be. Syndication is the key here. It is also a passive way of visiting websites. I access most of my stuff via feeds. Blog posts, news, pictures etc come to me. I don’t have to actively visit site by site.

So when you remove the action out of blogging, it isn’t a blog about your life anymore.

It is syncdicating your life.

One thought on “links for 2006-02-08”

  1. with the exception of the link, considering it’s the title of the target, there are more tags that entry than the number of words, numerals and puctuation combined.

    tag-whore.
