Star Trek

  I've always been a fan of Star Trek TOS. I just watched the episode on TV where they go back to the 1930s and have to prevent history from changing.

I think the ones where they go back in time are the best.

  I have on many occasions claimed that a large part of the reason Houston is faring so well during what is shaping up everywhere else in the country to be an economic disaster (Houston's markets are now downturning, largely due to the falling prices of oil, but at a much slower rate, and with much less unemployment, etc. The housing market is still booming.) is because we already went through such a crisis several years back with Enron.

I recently read a sentence that summed this up very well: "Enron was always Banquo's Ghost at the banquet of Bushonomics."

  After the football games wrapped up, I now have a completely broken bracket since every game went opposite how I predicted.

Which, frankly, I think is as impressive as getting them all right. Every one wrong? Wow.

So my picks for this week then (ignore the bracket from last week altogether):
BAL over TEN
PIT over SDG
NYG over PHI
CAR over ARI

We'll see how that works out. If all my picks aren't again destroyed, I pick:
TEN over CAR for the Super Bowl

  Alright so Dallas lost today. That was very disappointing. Additionally disappointing is watching Houston win and realizing that they are actually quite a good team in a very difficult division and under other circumstances could have made the playoffs. Dallas has no such excuse. They played worse than I've ever seen.

My initial playoff bracket prediction:
NFC                                                    AFC

ARI--+                                              +--SDG
     |--ATL--+                              +--IND--|
ATL--+       |--ATL--+              +--TEN--|       +--IND
        NYG--+       |              |       +--TEN
                     |--MIN vs PIT--|
        CAR--+       |              |       +--PIT
MIN--+       |--MIN--+              +--PIT--|       +--MIA
     |--MIN--+                              +--MIA--|
PHI--+                                              +--BAL

I predict that Pittsburgh wins it all.

I'll update this if things change. I think that Minnesota is a strong team and could beat almost any AFC team. So if Pittsburgh loses early, I wouldn't be surprised if Minnesota won. But if Minnesota wins early... So I'll update this after next week's Wild Card games.

Grace Slick

  From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Slick

Slick and Tricia Nixon, former President Richard Nixon's daughter, are both alumni of Finch College. Grace was invited to a tea party for the alumni at the White House in 1969. She invited the political activist Abbie Hoffman to be her escort, and planned to spike President Richard Nixon's tea with LSD. The plan was thwarted when they were prevented from entering after being recognized by White House security personnel.

Nathan Miller for Historian   
10.00 a; Tue, 11/25/08
  In 11th grade, I ran for class historian for senior year. I lost. I just found my campaign statement though, and it made me laugh:

“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it,” Winston Churchill once quipped, mainly with wit, but with dreadful honesty as well. Truly, most people will tell you today, over 50 years after World War II, that Winston Churchill was indeed a brilliant wartime leader, as was Franklin Roosevelt or Josef Stalin.
But for us, the class of 2006, who will be our next Winston Churchill, Babe Ruth, or Jay Z? Who will soar to new heights? And more importantly, who will be there to record the early, high school days.
Nathan Miller, that’s who. As the historian of the class of 2006, I plan to record our finest moments, from sports to academics, from people to places. History is more than a diary of dates; it is pictures, stories, and memories. So, to paraphrase Churchill, “History will be kind to the class of 2006, for I, Nathan Miller, intend to write it.”
Thank you.

Gangsta Gangsta, Verse 1   
6.54 p; Sat, 11/22/08
  I love those chart representations of popular music. Abi talked about them recently, and I remembered a time when I designed 10 slides of the first verse of NWA's Gangsta Gangsta.

So here it is!

Here's a little something 'bout a nigga like me, neva' shoulda been let out the penitentiary.

Ice Cube would like to say that I'm a crazy mothafucka from around the way. Since I was a youth, I smoked weed out.

Now I'm the mothafucka that ya read about.

Takin' a life or two, that's what the hell I do

You don't like how I'm livin', well fuck you! This is a gang, and I'm in it.

My man Dre'll fuck you up in a minute

With a right, left, right, left, you're toothless

And then you say, "Goddamn they ruthless!" Everywhere we go, they say, "Damn! NWA's fuckin' up tha program."

And then you realize we don't care. We don't just say no, we too busy sayin' 'yeah!' to drinkin' straight out the eight bottle.

Do I look like a mothafuckin' role model? To a kid lookin up to me, life ain't nothin' but bitches and money.

One Day in the Life...   
1.38 p; Mon, 8/4/08
  Author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn died yesterday, the author of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, which many of us read in High School.

Thinking back on the book, it's amazing to me that someone who went through such hell in real life was able not only to write about it, but to also live to the age of 89, into the era when Gulags were no longer possible, the era where Communism is truly on the decline.

I suggest reading the book, or if you have already done so, reflecting upon it.
