America: 30 seconds at a time

America: 30 seconds at a time

I've always been fascinated with people watching.  Seeing smiles on faces energizes me like sunlight energizes Superman. I especially like seeing different cultures and how the react tio the same things, and observing different towns and communities and noticing the subtle differences. Sometimes it's the little things, like the change of a font...

The scripted election of 2016

I'm a Canadian with a television, which means I have to pay attention to the politics of the USA. It's always a crazy show, but the year of 2016 is the craziest in my lifetime, if not in history.  There are so many conspiracy theories floating around, mostly because the campaigns are so crazy, we really can't believe it wasn't planned... or even...

Micro Disappointment 

Micro Disappointment 

​I learned the term Micro Expressions from TV a few years back when Tim Roth starred in Lie to Me. A crime drama where his team used facial expressions to figure out if people meant what they were saying.  I believe that I have been using that concept, without knowing the name, for many years to detect emotions and reactions in the faces and...

I’m obsessive about not being OCD

I’m obsessive about not being OCD

When I talk about being obsessive, people tend to jump to the conclusion I mean Obsessive-compulsive (OCD) and quickly correct them. Recently, I started to reevaluate whether I am OCD or not, because the more I obsess over it, the more the lines become blurred.  The photograph above shows my obsessive collection of the center cardboard from...

Speaking your Chats

Speaking your Chats

A funny thing happened to me recently when I was involved in a text conversation with a friend of mine. I was laying in bed, chatting with a friend using Google Hangouts on my cell phone. At some point it occurred to me the typing on the cell phone was a little tedious, but I didn't have a full keyboard or computer near the bed at that moment, so...

I started watching last nights new CSI series with no expectations. I was curious at most, but didn't spend any time pre thinking about it. I just turned it on and watched the first scene.

Whether you follow the...

Infinity +2

I am about to watch the third episode of Forever. Before I start with the traditional dead body reveal scene, I wanted to acknowledge the overall change I'm witnessing in the new series television dramas this year.  At least in the few I've watched so far, they seem to be throwing us the character back stories right away. They feel rushed to get...

People of the Yard Sale

I found myself at a charity yard sale this weekend with time to spare. Usually I don't pay too much attention to weekend sales in yards and driveways. They've never held much interest for me although I do know, for many people, they're a weekend highlight. I can breeze through a yard sale in under 3 minutes usually. I I just don't need to spend...
