Just leave. Thanks for the recession and your ignorance. Note to everyone: Obama will not be an instant cure all for everything Bush (and the rest of the morons who had anything to do with any legislation, democrats included) ruined. I’m not on the Obama bandwagon, but at this point you can’t really screw up much more. So time will tell. Good luck America.

Stop BSing Us, We all Know Steve Jobs is Finished

Face it: The man is in denial and we all fell for it, until yesterday, where he announced he is taking a leave of absence for his health. Quite honestly, everyone is making a big fuss about this and it’s understandable, but it is blatantly obvious that Jobs was completely full of crap. It’s okay though, he just didn’t want to seem weak for the almighty powerful company.

Some bad signs:

  • The man had pancreatic cancer in 2004. I’m sorry, but you just don’t survive pancreatic cancer.
  • He lost weight because of a hormone imbalance? My ass… Stop being in denial
  • Apple withdrew itself from it’s own Macworld Expo and Jobs did not hold the keynote speech.
  • Apple released a vague statement saying something along the lines that it always had a plan for Job’s successor, Jobs is okay, but we just want to throw that out there
  • You ever see a picture of the guy? He is ghastly.
  • Leave of absence? Now it’s just official

So I don’t mean to be negative, and this post is not meant to insult Jobs in anyway. He just wants to keep Apple’s stock up, uhhh…. I mean, he just doesn’t want to share his private health matters with everyone – which is perfectly understandable. predicts the man will not live through this current recession. If he does, it’ll be another miracle.

Still No Class for the NY Mets

January 12th, 2009 9:23pm No comments

In my free time of syllabus week (in between old episodes of the Sopranos and other activities), Keith and I spent some time taking a look at new Yankee Stadium and it looks sick. The 2009 inaugural season patch was rolled out today and is very well done.
2009 Inaugural Patch vs. Garbage vs. Dominos

As you can see, the Mets patch is bland and is very comparable to Domino’s Pizza. Our online staff at the Mirror can design a better, more sophisticated logo that doesn’t consist of a rounded rectangle, two colors and some plain text. This is an absolute embarrassment. First, they sell out to Citicorp, build a new stadium that looks more like a parking garage, then accept a half-assed, bland logo designed by some blind bailed out accountant at Citi. Honestly now.
