Sony Boycott

I’ve been boycotting Sony since their DRM Rootkit attack on consumers. Recently Sony/BMG opened their music to DRM-free sale in mp3 format on, and I’ve since been CONSIDERING dropping my boycott.

Bar Photos

I used to be very shy and antisocial. A few years ago I started going to a local bar and began learning to interact with strangers. These days most people laugh at the idea of me being shy, but deep down I still am. Anyway, here are a couple shy-style photos from the bar. Maybe […]
