At 9:08 p.m. a Davis Road resident complained of a man in the area screaming. Police responded and determined that the screaming came from a Bible Reading that got a little too loud. Police asked the worshipers to shut their doors and quiet down.
My first impression of this Texas-based band, was that of unconventional awesomeness. I saw this video and was immediately intrigued to hear more. Coining the phrase ‘Texas Celtic Rock’, this father-son based quartet is bound to leave a smile on your face.
Here are some notes and images from Lois Lane, Girl Reporter, a pitch for a series of illustrated young adult novels I worked on a few years ago for DC Comics. Story by me, with considerable brainstorming help from my pal John Campbell, and art by Project: Rooftop fan favorite Daniel Krall.
My wonderful editor, Chris Cerasi, was a real champion of the series, which we codenamed “Project 77,” and while we had a great time working on it and finding this secret window into the DCU, it doesn’t look like the current leadership of DC is remotely interested in this kinda thing. I thought some Lois Lane fans here on the interwebs might at least like a look at what might have been…
“If a company takes an image that belongs to someone else and pins it on a virtual pinboard, it could receive a letter from the copyright owner, accusing that business of infringing his rights. Such letters can lead to lawsuits and monetary penalties.”
My suggestion for businesses on Pinterest is only Pin images from YOUR website & only “like” pins to show appreciation to your followers, don’t RePin.
This morning CNN came out with a list of the 50 New Tech Tools You Should Know About, and guess what … Flud is one of them! We’re really excited to be featured, but what makes it even cooler is that we are side by side with apps we think are just amazing.

It’s almost been a year since Joel Stein’s notorious column in Time, which had Desis up in arms over the way we are represented and stereotyped in the American media. When I first read the article, I was also initially outraged. It was poorly executed satire that relied upon model minority politics and condescension at its best. However, as the Desi backlash for the article grew on the internet, I began to notice something even more disturbing. On Facebook and Twitter and many other mediums, I noticed that many Desis were decrying the article by affirming their own sense of nationalism and exceptionalism. Countless responses stressed how offended they were that Desis could be discussed “pejoratively” (the effectiveness of Stein’s satire is debatable) when we are so successful and come from such an ancient and beautiful culture. My own sense of outrage over the Stein article was met by a similar sense of irritation as I saw numerous South Asians, many of whom had never taken any type of interest in cultural stereotyping or the politics of race, decry this article by expressing a sense of cultural superiority and nationalism that can evolve just as dangerously as stereotyping and cultural appropriation. This is an issue I have grappled with since I became interested in a career in South Asian and diasporic cultural studies, and I find that little is changing among many members of my community.
