A Must Watch
As Google prepared to launch its smart glasses, Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo revealed in this short futuristic film a chilling vision of what could happen if they are misused and an overly augmented reality is created. I highly suggest watching this.
a song that makes me feel nice
Should I tie your arms afloat to its melody, and anchor my heart to you in hopes
I’ll climb out your mouth?
I was so sure you wanted love,
how could anyone find doubt?
I tied a knot in my heart for you,
though it’s not what you wanted.
sometimes girls are so cute it gives you that feeling like when you’re leaning back too far in a chair and you’re about to fall

This record is going to be huge
In 1983, 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the U.S. At the time, Ben Bagdikian was called “alarmist” for pointing this out in his book, The Media Monopoly. In his 4th edition, published in 1992, he wrote “in the U.S., fewer than two dozen of these extraordinary creatures own and operate 90% of the mass media” — controlling almost all of America’s newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, records, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies. He predicted then that eventually this number would fall to about half a dozen companies. This was greeted with skepticism at the time. When the 6th edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 2000, the number had fallen to six. Since then, there have been more mergers and the scope has expanded to include new media like the Internet market.
In 2004, Bagdikian’s revised and expanded book, The New Media Monopoly, shows that only 5 huge corporations — Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch’s News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS) — now control most of the media industry in the U.S. General Electric’s NBC is a close sixth.
