My posts have been rather lengthy this week, and I know you people have busy lives (well, at least I figure you’re busier than Brad Pitt in “True Romance.”) So a couple of quick-hitting thoughts as I savor Duke’s win over the hated Maryland Terps last night…
First, yet another news story brought to my attention by my good friend (and loyal blog reader) Will Springstead, esteemed sportswriter for the Glens Falls (N.Y.) Post-Star. It seems that a famous inn in Lee, Massachusetts called The Inn at Laurel Lake has been charged with running a prostitution ring. (Insert your own “Paul Revere’s ride” joke here).
You know, I can guarantee you this kind of stuff never went on under Dick and Joanna’s noses on “Newhart.”
**Next up we have a beautiful small clip of Slovakian violinist Lukas Kmit, who, in the middle of a performance, was interrupted by a cell phone ringing. After pausing for a moment, he did this. Awesome.
**Finally, I know we’re all afraid of death. But we’re even more afraid of dying and having no one update our Facebook status letting the world know we’ve stopped breathing.
But stepping in and solving this HUGE problem are the makers of the IF I DIE app. It works like this: You create a final video or “last words” file, and you appoint three “trustees” among your Facebook friends. When each of them has verified that you have kicked the bucket, your last words are posted to your Facebook page.
Because you know, being dead and all, you’ll really be concerned at keeping people up to date.
