Getting to know an Old Friend. Some shallow thoughts on Episode 3 of Community

People were decrying Community after the season opener. Saying it’s a shadow of it’s former self.
Well after watching community religously for the past 4 years I’ve no doubt that community tends to finish strong but open very weakly except on one season where they opened strong had an okay middle and a somewhat weaker but still strong close.

I still feel a little out of sorts which I imagine as somewhat like to people who used to date each other but after a short but meaningful break decided to get back together. Even if we’re jiving before the feeling out stage begins anew.

Hope Episode 3 (Although I also enjoyed season 3 episode 2 it just felt like it was shot just in time for Halloween and was unfortunately delayed by the general delay in all things community for season 3)

Cognitive biases in popular songs

Forget that guff about Rage against the Machine vs. X Factor – truly, a herd of independent minds. What’s more worrying is the large number of basic irrationalities contained in popular songs.

I was at the gym the other day – this finely chiselled physique doesn’t come naturally – and Alexandra Burke came on the TV, singing “The bad boys are always catching my eye.”

Well of course they are. Bad boys hang around on street corners and in malls where you can see them. Good boys on the other hand are working or studying and so are in offices and libraries where they’ll not catch your eye.

This is a sampling bias. It’s an elementary cognitive error.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Elink Video:What’s Playing: The Swell Season – Low Rising

I wanna sit you down and talk
I wanna pull back the veils
And find out what it is I´ve done wrong
I wanna tear these curtains down
I want you to meet me somewhere
Tonight in this old tourist town
And we´ll go

Low rising
´Cause we´ve gotta come up
We´ve gotta come up
Low rising
´Cause I fear we´ve had enough
Low rising
´Cause there´s no further for us to fall
Low rising
Oh for the love of you

I wanna take you to the rock
I wanna jump right in
And see what that big ocean´s got
I wanna turn this thing around
I wanna drink with you
All night till we both fall down
Till we go

Low rising
´Cause we´ve gotta come up
We´ve gotta come up
Low rising
´Cause there´s no further for us to fall
Low rising
And I fear we´ve had enough
Low rising
Oh for the love of you

Low rising
´Cause we´ve gotta come up
We´ve gotta come up
Low rising
And I fear we´ve had enough
Low rising
´Cause there´s no further for us to fall
Low Rising
Oh for the love of you

For the love of you

Low rising low rising

I wanna sit you down and talk

I wanna sit you down and talk about it now

Personal::Sorry I still hate Comcast (Scripting News)

Love and hate have a mathematical relationship: Permalink to this paragraph

hate = love + betrayed Permalink to this paragraph

via Sorry I still hate Comcast (Scripting News).

A phrase has been percolating in my mind for unhealthy chunk of time.

“You’ve crossed the thin line between love and hate”.

long story; don’t ask. just like the similarities between the two.

PS: I use to not understand why people say don’t be callous with the feelings of other people, I probably am a douche, basta damn!

10. Don’t wear a nice watch, for that suggests a fat wallet and also makes a target. I learned that lesson on my first trip to the Philippines: a robber with a machete had just encountered a Japanese businessman with a Rolex — who now, alas, has only one hand.

The West Wing (tv show) Reminiscence – Sonia Sotomayor edition

I remember this The West Wing scene where toby is elated with having someone confirmed as judge., and strangely the scene where president bartlett talks with a very old supreme court judge slowly becoming senile, the judge says “Who can you get me?,  I need someone who ahs a body of work….. I am much better than them in my worst days (on talking about anyone that bartlett can get confirmed)”. Strangely,  I feel that Sonia Sotomayor can actually pass mustard with that judge.

Kudos to the obama whitehouse, we take the victories that we can. Hope the honorable
