Honking at Pigeons

On March 27, 2011 By

Feeding birds appears to be a sign of either wisdom, boredom, or senility. I never see young people feeding birds. I assume it’s boredom, but will give it a shot on the off chance that wisdom is involved.

One such wise and/or bored and/or senile individual had scattered birdseed across a nearby street the other […]

Review: iA Writer for iPad

On March 14, 2011 By

I love my iPad for many reasons—its capacity for creative writing is not one of them.

That all changed the second I fired up this $0.99 pearl. Of course, writing is much more pleasant on my laptop, however, iA Writer at least makes it so I can write on my iPad in a way that […]

Dropping the F-Bomb

On March 9, 2011 By

I’ve written about my criteria for moderation of oneword.com entries before. This post is very specific, prompted by an ever-growing pattern I’ve noticed over the last few years. Let me start with one example:

The day’s word: bee

“Nothing more than a struggling person trying to live their lives off […]

The Mayans weren’t predicting the end of the world with their calendar. They just wanted you to buy the next age’s calendar.

Take, for example, my Justin Bieber 2010 photo calendar. It runs out at the end of March 2011. Am I speeding to the supermarket to stock up on canned corn, Space Shuttle ice-cream […]

Ten Thousand And Counting

On January 24, 2011 By

Congratulations to our new best friend, @blueperez, who just became the 10,000th registered oneword™ user.

We are now competing with Facebook at .01% of their 500 million. And going strong.

Following in the footsteps of another .01% peer, Apple, we thought it only fitting to award number ten-thousand with a big, fat […]

Everyday Grammar. Every Day.

On January 9, 2011 By

I saw a huge billboard on Cahuenga at the 101 Freeway in Hollywood tonight. It’s prime advertising real estate with no less than a $20,000US monthly price tag.

The headline reads:

Everyday is Valentine’s Day

This translates loosely to:

Ordinary is Valentine’s Day

Maybe. However, I’m guessing that what they meant was: “Every day is […]

Thou Shalt Sort Of

On January 4, 2011 By

Thou shalt not kill.

This is from the Holy Bible. It’s one of the ten commandments allegedly given to the prophet, Moses, straight from God. It doesn’t say:

Thou shalt not kill. Well, unless it’s for your country. Oh, or if you’re hungry.

God, not being Schizophrenic, kept it simple, as I can only imagine […]

If someone is gay and wants to serve in a military rampant with John Waynes and Pattons—they should. That’s courage and determination if I’ve ever seen it.

I’m happy to hear that someone in the US government has seen the light. In fact, the only people that should be banned from the military are, well, […]

In an earlier post, I had mentioned being anti-stupid.

This was in response to multiple (some harsh and rude) allegations of the site being against freedom of speech. This, to me, is not only comical—but the antithesis of oneword.

Rather than being anti-stupid, I would like to offer a revised, more accurate […]
