However you may have arrived here, this is the old Not Not Silly Newsroom.

It's a long story -- hardly worth going into here -- but after this place was declared a Brownfield Site, we abandoned it for the NEW! IMPROVED!! Not Now Silly Newsroom.

Welcome Back Coconut Grove Grapevine

Despite my minor feud with Tom Falco, it was with great interest that I noted that he's fired up the Coconut Grove Grapevine again. For those not paying attention, Falco wrote back in September

Me and Pink Floyd and Ivor Wynne Stadium ► Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be

What's left of Ivor Wynne Stadium.
It was sad to note in today's news that Hamilton's storied Ivor Wynne Stadium, home to the Tiger Cats, is almost no more.

People who know me well, also know I don't follow sports. So why would a rickety football stadium bring a figurative tear to my eye? Because I have fond memories of a single day at Ivor Wynne Stadium: June 28, 1975.

Fun With Pictures ► Unpacking The Aunty Em Ericann Blog

Vulcan mind-meld -- you're doing it wrong.
Caption Contest winner: ET
To pick up where I left off in my Unpacking The Aunty Em Ericann Blog series, dear readers . . .

In the wake of Johnny Dollar exposing my nom de plume and sex life -- and while still mightily pissed off -- I created a facebook page called The Johnny Dollar Depreciation Society and invited some people to join. Only 15 people ever did and I promptly forgot all about it. That is, until recently. The other day I added a few more pics of Johnny Dollar that people had sent me over the last few months, as I continue to research my book.

The Fox "News" Spin Cycle ► Episode 35

If Fox "News" isn't anything, it isn't subtle. Tracking which people, or memes, it gives voice to on a weekly basis is to witness its naked bias. The Fox "News" Spin Cycle has been designed from the bottom up to expose that Fox "News" bias, and have a little fun at the same time. 

To be serious for a sec: During a week in which many people -- including President Obama -- spoke about common sense gun safety regulations, Fox "News" promoted none of them, elevating only the most extreme voices in the gun debate. Just another reason why Fox "News" is not "Fair and Balanced." Never has been. Never will be.

Testing An App

This app claims it will allow me to make blog posts from anywhere. Now to explore it and see what else it does.

UPDATE: It turns out that I have explored everything it does. I can add a post, like above, consisting entirely of text and nothing else.

Do you have a Windows Phone? Let me know what apps you find indispensable. I'm still trying to become half as smart as my smart phone.
