The following comes from Zig Ziglar’s book, See You At the Top. I heard this tonight at an association I frequent. Thanks to Dev for this little gem. (And yes, I’ve been in the whole “self improvement” mentality lately. See #3 and 13 to find out why.)
“Hold the phone. Get the lights. This is it. The night of nights. No more rehearsing or nursing the part. We know every part by heart…” If you watched as much television as I did when growing up, you’d know that the little poem/jingle above came from the Bugs Bunny Saturday Morning Hour. (It was… Read more The Transformation Has Begun!
It’s not uncommon for college graduates to ask themselves “OK, I graduated. Now what?” After all, you spend your entire life up to that point doing nothing but going to school, having people direct you and tell you what to do, then all of a sudden *poof* no mas.

This afternoon I was having lunch with a friend when suddenly our conversation turned to networking.

Sure, I’m still impatient and do my best to speed read through the series — hoping somehow to understand the story line from reading every other pane and looking… Read more The Matrix Comics Online

This shot (not a Photoshop) comes to us via way of UKResistance.co.uk, and proves that the strange fetishes of Japanese teenie-boppers don’t just rule what will be considered cool in the next few years, they also rule the way things are run in the First… Read more Vader in His Spare Time?
Due to the blog spam situation I’ve recently been attacked by (100+ spam postings per day), I’ve decided to require a login in order to comment.
