I try to stay away from politics on this blog, but this was too yummy to avoid sharing:
Coreyc reviews for The FountainHead:
By the time you’re twenty, you should know that you can only disclose your affair with this book to select people. You should also know that people who think this book has anything to do with actual philosophy or politics are people you should back slowly away from while telling them it is a wonderful book. You should learn to separate your enjoyment of this book from your utter disdain for those Ayn Rand people, because they are scary and they didn’t read it for the plot. You should also have learned that you will have to apologize to anyone who knew you in the vicinity of reading this book, because you were probably a self-righteous, Principled, selfish asshole for at least two weeks after (and possibly during) the completion of this book.
To quote lonelysandwich :
Sometimes it takes me three or four drafts to get to that magical place where I realize I have nothing to say.
Although I do have this gem of an image to share with you guys — this is a bizzare sign Akash and I encountered outside ABC (a local microbrewery/watering hole) yesterday:
Enter Magic Bus for the iPhone, available at
This web-app simply takes the Magic Bus data feed and reformats it in an iPhone-friendly manner. Each route is listed in a section with its stops, and the number of minutes until the next bus (and the ones after them) at that stop.
Tap on “prefs”, and you can pick and choose only the routes and bus stops you are interested in, since it’s a little unwieldy to see 43 bus stops and 9 routes at the same time. (This also makes the load times faster)
Ironically, I wrote this almost a year ago; I just didn’t have the time to document it and tell people about it. Hopefully, people will use it now!
