I’m an Apple fanboy. I grew up with a Mac and a PC in the house, I gamed on the PC, did everything else on the Mac (papers, movies, photoshop, web). I want an Apple tablet so badly I could cry. And I want it so I can read books and magazines again.

I’m of the opinion that every major American holiday, if not just every holiday, is on some level a ritualistic celebration designed to disguise indulging in vice. Fourth of July is pride, Christmas avarice, Valentine’s Day is lust, and Thanksgiving is, of course, gluttony.
