I just really like this song:
See the animal in his cage that you built. Are you sure what side you're on? Better not look him too closely in the eye. Are you sure what side of the glass you are on? See the safety of the life you have built. Everything where it belongs. Feel the hollowness inside of your heart. And it's all Right where it belongs
What if everything around you Isn't quite as it seems? What if all the world you think you know. Is an elaborate dream? And if you look at your reflection. Is it all you want it to be? What if you could look right through the cracks? Would you find yourself. Find yourself afraid to see?
What if all the world's inside of your head. Just creations of your own? Your devils and your gods. All the living and the dead. And you're really all alone? You can live in this illusion You can choose to believe. You keep looking but you can't find the woods While you're hiding in the trees.
What if everything around you Isn't quite as it seems? What if all the world you used to know. Is an elaborate dream? And if you look at your reflection. Is it all you want it to be? What if you could look right through the cracks. Would you find yourself. Find yourself afraid to see?

My good friend Shaun Pope and I were debating which was the worst superhero movie ever. I thought it was Batman & Robin. Pope thought it was Spiderman 3. After we could reach a consensus, we decided we would measure it scientifically.
We took an evening to watch them both. With pen and paper in-hand, we counted how many cool things each movie had (E.g. Flying surfboards), as well as all the dumb things (E.g. Robin's rubber lips). My buddy Ryan Skinner also sat in, but didn’t actively take part of the study.
After nearly four hours of bad movie footage, we got the following results:
|Spiderman 3||Batman & Robin|
|Jake||37 Cool - 29 Dumb =||8 Cool||38 Cool - 41 Dumb =||3 Dumb|
|Shaun||31 Cool - 34 Dumb =||3 Dumb||60 Cool - 53 Dumb =||7 Cool|
|5 Cool||4 Cool|
They are both really dumb movies, but Batman & Robin is just a little dumber.
I've been neglecting the website for a month or two, not writing a lot, because I've been re-writing a lot. My book, "Million Dollar Ideas" is now finished. The paperback and ebook are currently available at lulu.com.
The ebook should show up in the ibook store in a few days. The paperback will be available at Ebay and Amazon in a few weeks. Eventually it will be available to order at Barnes and Noble and a few others. Hope you like it.
