"The secret to effective prayer is asking for things that would have happened anyway." - @TweetOfGod

Ah, the good ole days, when suspension of disbelief only referred to fiction and not the actual news... If TV engagement is up it's for 2 reasons: First, so many great shows on TV. Second, I keep rewinding what I miss while I'm on my iPad... Yo! Affleck has killed it as a director in his last few movies and acting not too shabby either. He deserves benefit of the doubt on Batman role. His taste and chops are better. Thinking tough and ripped as his southie character. Though Liev Schreiber would have been an interesting choice too.. Dear TV Industry, I want every TV Everywhere app to be on AppleTV NOW... I'm interested in running a packaged software company with huge application menus... Reading tech blogs is its own living inside The Matrix... They should have a nap room at @Eataly... Please tell me the rumor that Steve Ballmer will run The NY Knicks isn't true... New term I made up: "Treadmill show." An entertaining television show that one watches on the treadmill and even if every 2nd and 3rd word is missed, you can still comprehend and follow the plot... @ariannahuff gives great dinner... Happy Birthday to pal, Rob Goldberg.
