Getting Back Into the Routine

Red Friday: Maybe you've heard about this new craze of sorts that's sweeping the nation. Okay, so its less of a craze and more of a gigantic patriotic ball that American citizens are trying to get rolling.

Basically, its a group on Facebook, click here if you will ----------> RED FRIDAY

The group's main shtick is that they'd like people to wear red, any sort of red on every Friday in open support of our troops. I liked the idea so much, that I went ahead and created this little montage for the event.

It's nothing special, at all, but I had a good time making it.

Free Star Trek Books:

I get free Star Trek books in the mail. Its by far the coolest perk of being a geeky blogger with a humble 55 followers. Simon and Schuster were very generous and simply asked if I'd like to receive their latest novels. Of course I said yes! I LOVE Star Trek, and I LOVE Star Trek fiction! Wait, isn't all Star Trek basically fiction? Whatever...

It's awesome, I love it and I thought I should at the very least give a big thank you to the folks who author and distribute these fantastic novels. In fact, if you like Star Trek or Sci-Fi for that matter, check out these great Star Trek novels here.

Might I suggest Watching the Clock by Christopher L. Bennett? Very compelling novel. Especially for those hard core Trekkies... Trekkers?


I'm going to take a guess that if you're reading this, that you're a blogger, or at the very least, versed in the World Wide Web.

Now I'm going to take another guess. How many times have you simply stated your opinion, be it a short comment on Youtube, Twitter or Tumbler and the next thing you know, someone's verbally attacking you for no particular reason. Whether or not those really do intend it or not, their comments can be harmful. Very harmful. Heck, you may even get insults thrown at you by your friends on Facebook.

That's where Civilnation comes in. Civilnation is a non-profit organization who's goal is to make the Internet, and its denizens, a more friendly, accepting and less abussive place. While I am downright against regulating speech, it is a freedom after all, I think it's imperative that we at the very least educate and try to be examples for the online community.

If you're interested in pledging to Civilnation, or would simply like to pass on the link and get the word around, click here.

Alright, so that's all for today. I'll be getting back to my traditional posting style shortly, but in the meantime I might as well ask another reader question!
