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.

Today is the best day. EVER!

Today EMI, the largest record company, announced that all of it’s music will be sold DRM free on the iTunes Music Store.On top of that, they are raising the bitrate for all tracks sold. This is simply a boon for digital music everywhere, as Warner, Sony, & Universal will follow suit, they just have too to keep up. And before that indie labels such as Tooth & Nail, A&M, Fueled by Ramen, will follow suit.

[update: I have since found out Tooth and Nail is a subsidiary of EMI]

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

Life Sucks

21 10 2006

Life pretty much is the largest waste of time.
Look we’re going to die, we can’t stop entropy (mathematically we can, however it has since never happened). WE shouldn’t exist. Yet we do, and what happens. Dumb stuff.

Nothing in life is worth all the other fills the time voids between. Love, love is a lie, create by those who wanted more. Happiness, happiness is mirage for those who believe love. Love is the cause of all unhappiness.

And I’m unhappy.

Always have backups of your pictures. Those are memories you can’t get back. I lost some very good pictures of people I care a lot about, and now they are gone and left me. Like a dream I once had.

Just keep backups.
And Backups of Backups.
