Random Notes

[*] I started taking Flaxseed oil (pills) everyday and a Vitamin Water. I feel more energetic and waking up in the morning hasn’t been the awful–I wish I was dead–experience that it always used to be.

[*]This Free Rice game is amazing. It’s like Puppy War but with an academic rationalization.

[*]Got this quote from someone.

“The first step — especially for young people with energy and drive and talent,

but not money — the first step to controlling your world is to control your

culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To

write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.” Chuck Palahniuk

[*]Have a TON of books I want to get into. This is the list.

[*] I mentioned the word “viral” in my in this post about marketing. I will never use the word again. I just heard someone use it to describe the paid distribution of fliers outside a concert. Officially, done.
