What does Jonathan have to say?



Was there history before the Internet?

internetI've often wondered what life was like before cars or air conditioning or even indoor plumbing.  It seems like it would be impossible.  Obviously I never knew life before those things so I can't really imagine it. However, I DID live before there was the internet.  In fact, I received a college degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison without the internet.  Here are a list of thigns I did WITHOUT the internet: 1) Research papers 2) Find movie times 3) Write letters 4) Get directions to something 5) Find out who was the MVP in the 1973 World Series 6) Amuse myself with humorous content 7) Make reservations for dinner 8) Choose a place to go for dinner 9) Book a vacation 10) Buy airline tickets 11) Look at a picture of a supermodel in a bathing suit 12) Buy music Now it seems impossible to do ANY of those things without the internet.  Despite making our lives easier, I sometimes think the internet has made me a believer of anything I see on the computer screen.  If it's on Wikipedia it has to be true, right?  I mean someone is checking that thing to make sure it's accurate.  Right? The internet has not not only made us less productive, but our standards for entertainment have dropped as well.   I spent 20 minutes yesterday watching videos of cats playing with string, paper bags and chasing laser pointer lights.  What the hell is wrong with me?! I'd write more, but I think there's a new video of a elephant scratching his back on a tree.

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
