It's Time To Retire The Label African-American

African-African, not an African-American.
Hi, I'm a European-American. If you want to be specific, I'm a Hungarian-Slovenian-American, but I've never donned any of those monikers. Both of my parents were born in this country. Out of the thousands of black people I've met in my life, I've probably met a handful that were actually born in Africa. Yet, we use African-American all the time. I think it's time to retire the label "African-American".

Short Story: The Conversation

"I love you. Sorry, I'm late."
"Hi, I'm sorry I'm late. I guess the excuse doesn't matter. I'm just glad I made it. It's been a while. But I have to tell you this before you go. I love you. I appreciate what you did for me when I needed help. I appreciate the things you tried to teach me. I'm sorry I didn't learn it the way you wanted...

Baracky Meets Spongebob Squarepants

Baracky is about to meet Spongebob.
Some days I wonder what the hell I'm doing. The other day, I ran across a program where you can make these simple animations. So I played around with it for an hour or so until I got the hang of what was going on. And I made "Baracky Meets Spongebob Squarepants."

New YouTube Interface Review - You Be The Judge

Preview of the new YouTube Interface.
A week ago, YouTube rolled out their new Channel Interface. I think when you roll out a new product, you should be really excited about it. Rather than trying to explain it to you. I made a very short video to show you what it looks like. Take a look at the New YouTube Interface and you be the judge.

MANIAC Blogger Has A Massive Amount Of Projects

MANIAC Blogger is just getting revved up. Look Out!
Until about four weeks ago, I did not realize what BUSY was all about. I know I have never worked like this in my life. I've done serious physical labor that literally broke my body, but this is an endurance test. It is becoming commonplace for me to go to Denny's to work and be there for 24, 30, 40 - I was even there for 52 consecutive hours - WORKING. Rather than write a 6,000 word post about all the things I've had my hands on, I made a video. You'll see that the MANIAC Blogger has a massive amount of projects. But I think I'm getting a handle on them all.

Black And White Photography - Pearl Harbor - Vol. 2

Japanese planes begin the assault on Pearl Harbor.
December 7th will be the day that will live in infamy. I think a big guy with glasses said that. Events like this have a profound effect on me, even though I was not alive at the time. Something about understanding the carnage and the horror that can't escape me. I assembled a collection of Black And White Photography on Pearl Harbor and have been sharing them all day with my Tumblr friends. I wanted to put them together in a blog post. The pictures tell the story.

November Page Views Up 25% Over October

November page views jump up 25% over October.
I can feel the momentum building. Blog traffic continues to rise. In November, page views were up 25% over October. October page views were 20,367, while November jumped to 25,457 - enough to be the second best month on this site; however, still about 12,000 short of the 37,000+ page views in May 2011. All of the computer problems that caused the fall-off are behind me and the sky is the limit.

You Just Have To Watch It. Absolutely Incredible !!!!!
