It's a not so great day for America, everybody.

Today, it was announced that Craig Ferguson would be leaving The Late Late Show sometime in December. To be honest, I’m sort of happy this is happening, and here’s why. Back in the summer of 2011, that’s when I first started my love of David Letterman. I was looking back at his old Late Night things, and was really getting into Late Show, even though it was no where near as funny as his old stuff. But then, after the show was over, one night I decided to stay on CBS to see what the show was like. Instantly, I was hooked. It just felt different from everything else on TV, especially with Craig’s gay talking skeleton robot Geoff, which back when he only said about 5 different things was hilarious. The moments when Secretariat would come in and everyone in the studio went crazy were amazing, and it honestly had me laughing out loud, which I don’t do all that often with TV shows now-a-days. Craig just seemed to have fun doing the show. That and the fact that Craig would constantly talk a…

Stop Blaming Television, Parents

I follow a Simpsons blog here on Tumblr, and one of things they do every so often is show an FCC complaint made by a viewer, where they describe what they feel is too inappropriate for broadcast television, and then the clip is shown. And every time, I get really pissed off. I hate how some parents feel that television channels should be responsible for taking care of children rather than the parents. It’s like they honestly feel that the entire world revolves around their stupid kid, and their inability to properly discuss with them what goes on in the real world. Be a parent, and tell your kid to not watch the things you don’t want them to watch, or explain to them that it’s just a television show and to not do or take serious the things in the show. It’s not Fox’s fault, or any network or personality that your kid watched their content. Besides the obvious fact that no one is forcing your kid to be tainted by inappropriate television, there’s this fancy thing called the internet w…

Don't hate on Chromebooks

Everyone’s biased. I am a total Microsoft fanboy. I absolutely love my Windows Phone, and want my next PC to be a Surface Pro 2. That being said, I don’t understand Microsoft’s ad campaign against Chromebooks. Their main points of hatred are: It has to be connected to the internet all the time.You can’t install apps like Office. To anyone that uses the internet argument, honestly tell me how often you use a computer without the internet. It’s 2014, what can you even do on a computer without the internet today? I can think of a couple things, maybe watch a DVD, play minesweeper, play with the screen savers, that’s about it. Would I want to do any of these things? No. Every time I lose internet or have no access to it, I cry. It’s basically the same thing I’d do with a Chromebook without the internet. And honestly, how often do people use Office anymore? Google Docs is free and pretty good. It’s not as good as Office, but it’s free. Not to mention, Microsoft already makes a free office …

I'm confused by the 99% Protesters

I just watched and read an article about how Kevin Rose, an employee of Google Ventures, a tech start-up company and previous host of Diggnation and The Screen Savers on TechTV, had his home protested by an anti-tech army. They’re angry because: The tech boom in San Francisco brings in entrepreneurs who get paid a lot of money.They don’t get any of this money.They have to work for these entrepreneurs at low paying jobs. Hearing these people protest is like hearing a five year old complain they can’t get the toy they want. These protesters seem to think that because start-ups get handed all this money, they don’t actually have to work, that they get to sit around all day. Starting, running, and maintaining a business is extremely hard tedious work that takes experience, non-stop care and dedication. I can’t even imagine the amount of stress these people have to go through all day with the uncertainty of their business sustaining. You can’t just sit back and enjoy the ride, because that…
