An Open Letter to Vaynerchuk

25 01 2008

Open Letter to Gary Vaynerchuk.

Hi GV. I’ve been watching your show for sometime now, and while I can’t say I’ve been with you from the beginning I have gone back and watched most of your shows. I’m not 21, and I haven’t had much if any wine. But I’m doing what you did, I’m trying significant flavor profiles week by week and am building my palette. Its something I never would’ve thought to do. You made me think of it.

And its not just me, You’re making everyone think about there wine. How we drink, why we drink, drinking what we like, not listening to others. Its not us thats coming up with these ideas, it was you. You are more than just a wine taster and critic. You’re a teacher. You’ve been teaching to try new things, to get out of the box. And as you you’ve said this is changing to wine world. A wine world that has predominately been held in oligopoly those Sir Gary Vaynerchuks of the wine world.. But you’re breaking those barriers, and claiming that oneself it the only authority to your own palette.

You say at the end of every episode,”You with a little bit of me, We’re changing the wine world”. While this may be true, can you believe before saying, “You with a little bit of me, WE’VE CHANGED THE WINE WORLD”. In the next seven days I don’t think you can.

Gary Vaynerchuk. You’ve done a lot for us. Informed us, Taught and Entertained Us. You can’t leave now. You can’t leave for a long time. You’re revolutionary, and one day it’ll be know. Gary Vee and the Vayniacs, changed the wine world.


Yesterday, Thanksgiving, What I’m thankful for.

25 11 2006

Most people would think, I’ll just say my new MacBook Pro (Which is true, I’m quite thankful that I now run Mac OS X 10.4.x). However there is so much more.

First and foremost I’m thankful for my faith and religion, for the strength it has provided me in the harshest and hardest of times.
Secondly I’d like to thank Charles Babbage/ Ada Lovelace. You guys were the forerunners for what I’m using right now. And then I’d like to thank my family and friends. Not to say you are less than Ada Lovelace, you are certainly not, but I think that I would not be telling people what I’m thankful unless it was for Ada Lovelace.
And now in no particular order:

Srinivasa Ramanujan, Pierre de Fermat, Andrew Wiles, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Issac Newton, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, & Bernard Reimann. You guys were/are pretty freakin’ awesome.

Metallica, Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor), Slayer, Panic! at the Disco, Norma Jean, Five Iron Frenzy, Daft Punk, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, & Alice in Chains. Wondrous Music!

Eugene Atget, Ansel Adams, David Hockney, and various other photographers. You show the world as it is

Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci. You show the world as it might be.

Bill Gates, Kevin Rose,Tim O’Reilly, Linus Torvalds, IBM, Engadget & Weblogs Inc.,Google, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Shigeru Miyamoto, Cliffy B, Bungie, John Carmack,Valve, Intel, AMD, Nvidia, ATI, Sony, Nintendo, & Apple. Thanks for making technology, gadgets, and computing my life and for creating gmail.

George Lucas, Tron, Steven Spielberg,The Wachowski Brothers, Kevin Smith, Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves. Great Movies.

Douglas Adams, Micheal Crichton, J.R.R Tolkien, Robert Ludlum, Charles Seife, R.L Stein, & J.K Rowling. Great Reads, and interaction at an intellectual level.

My best friends (H-dog and K-dog). Thanks Brothers, good times.
All the people I’ve met at college, especially my R.A.


Thanks People

The Smell

22 09 2006

I’m in the computer lab, and I smell Chanel. How wonderous the smell of Chanel (any of them)
Chanel is what you would expect the smell of beautiful women to smell like.
So light and soft, such as their skin, pale and soft to the touch.

Bob Saget… my best friend!

Ok maybe not, but one of my best friends might come to my college. Hooray

Fear its gripping, Sadness is hell, and hell is fear. Therefore sadness is gripping

2 09 2006

Its like the title to an Emo song, you know how they have those super long titles that make no sense. However mine does because it is in fact a piece of mathematical logic. I’ve just added a tag to this post, “How lonely are you”. Although i’ve stated this before, I’m quite lonely, and not matter where I look, no one really wants to be with me. I found one friend I know is going to be awesome, and I have my room mate, but what about those of the fairer sex. Those of such etherealic beauty and magnificent personalities. Am I that bad of a man, as to not gain anyone. It seems to me that so many others can just get a girl and at least have them say “hi” to them. Today I said “hi” to someone I stood in line for 2 hours with and took a picture and she didn’t even acknowledge me.

Maybe no one wishes to be with me. My friends are gone ( or wish to leave), my family couldn’t be any farther away from me in the non-literal sense, and I can’t get anyone to fill those shoes.

Forever lonely
Forever Fearful
Forever Gripped

Dude I met someone from a really long time ago.
