MacHeist 3 Bundle

o2b
Over $600 worth of Mac software waiting for you at MacHeist 3 Bundle for only $39. Yes, you read that right: forty dollars only! Of that, 25 percent goes to the charity of your choice (from a selection of about 8 or so different options), and you get a free social networking application, EventBox, just for dropping by!

Buy soon, at this link only (I get extra apps, hehe), because when we raise another $165k for charity (approximately 660 thousand purchases), even more software is added to the bundle, making it worth nearly one thousand dollars!

If Andy is short for Andrew, why isn't Sandy short for Sandrew? Hmm? Something to ponder...

Awww fuck! Sometimes, Apple, you advance technology way too fast! Slow it down a little in these things, ok? http://snurl.com/61j78

On DFW...

o2b

I didn’t even realize it, but I had started identifying so much with DFW that I had assumed part of him into my own identity. The character Hal Incandenza, in Infinite Jest, you see, is very, very much like myself. And this is what I didn’t even realize, but… I had started using hal as my login for various websites—meaning short for ‘Halsey’—but it didn’t hit me until after his passing that it was also Hal’s name. Silly me. That’s how much, I suppose, that I identified with Harold Incandenza, tennis star and English language genius of the highest caliber. So yeah, I had started calling myself ‘hal’ instead of ‘billifer’… and I had no idea it was because of DFW. But, of course, now I totally realize it.

Goodbye, DFW. Goodbye, Hallie.

He's gone.

I can't believe that David Foster Wallace killed himself. But I shouldn't be so surprised. His description of depression in Infinite Jest was so wickedly painful that it's obvious he knew of what he wrote. DFW, I will miss your work. Since I never got to meet you, I cannot say much more. But I always wanted to spend an afternoon with you, just chatting about everything in the universe. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. There's a whole world crying right now.

I often wonder whether genius writers feel the pressure and the expectation to die young: they aren't truly worthwhile authors if not, perhaps. 'Tis but one more reason I had to stop writing. I couldn't allow myself to feel the expectations: "great writers are alcoholics" and "great writers kill themselves." And I wanted to be a great writer.

Or maybe it had nothing at all to do with his writing. Perhaps he did it for one of the many reasons that I myself have contemplated. No one but he can ever know.
