For the first time in the history of this blog, I'm speechless.

Radio rant

I'll keep this short and sweet* since I've already ranted about two individual stations (NPR and KROQ). Does anyone else think it's ridiculous that radio stations are constantly interrupting their programming to brag about playing blocks of uninterrupted music? Last week I heard the following statement between songs: "You are in the middle of another non-stop music block, brought to you by McDonald's." Who are they trying to fool?

*Or "short and bitter," more appropriately. Ha!

Found photos

Artist Jon Rafman scours Google Maps to find incredible photos taken by Google Street View cameras. Check out his work at 9-eyes.com.

I wanted to post more photos, but you really have to view them at full-scale to see the detail. The collection is mesmerizing, ranging from beautiful to downright alarming.

Still got it

Been playing Call of Duty: Ghosts online whenever I can. Good to know that even though I can't play much, I've still got some game.

Breaking news

While looking up information for my last blog post, I came across the following "breaking news" on CNN.

Kim Kardashian's bathing suit selfie
Kim Kardashian posts a bathing suit photo of herself on Instagram

The headline was linked to a video wherein broadcasters engage in an in-depth discussion of the photograph. Stay classy, CNN.

A generous fairy

There has been nothing on TV lately. Things have gotten so bad that I recently watched the first few minutes of The Tooth Fairy starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Trust me when I say that a few minutes were more than enough.

The reason I mention the movie (aside from giving me an excuse to post this awesome photo), is that it reminded me of a poll I just read about. CNN reports that American children are currently receiving an average of $3.70 per lost tooth!

Are you kidding me?! When I was a kid I was stoked if I got a half-dollar coin (and I'm not that old).
