Welcoming 2014

0:00 CET - Cheers!

After almost 300 posts in this little blog of mine, I’ve decided to retire this and start anew. 2013 has been great. I’ve experienced and learned a lot, met with interesting people, explored new places and whatnot. Now I’m ready for this year. which will surely be as interesting and fun as the previous one.

Blogging is great. Writing a blog gives you that immense sensational feeling that you are part of this 21st Century globalized world. It gives you an incentive to aim higher.

And I will continue to aim high. So this will probably be my last post for this blog, which will stay open as my little archive. I’ll be transferring to another platform sometime in January or February.

I’m active on Twitter, so follow me: https://twitter.com/joshmaks

Anyway, Happy New Year!

From Christopher Nolan, Interstellar is in theaters November 2014. http://www.InterstellarMovie.com/ 

"We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments, these moments when we dared to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. And perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers and we’ve barely begun. And that are greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, as our destiny lies above us."

From The Smoking Gun, detailing a lawsuit regarding Eminem and a former schoolmate.

OCTOBER 20—Cross one lawsuit off Eminem’s litigation list.  A Michigan judge Friday tossed out a complaint filed by a former grade school classmate of the star who claimed that he was defamed by lyrics from “The Slim Shady LP,” the rapper’s 1999 debut.  In a 14-page ruling, a copy of which you’ll find here, Macomb County Circuit Court Judge Deborah Servitto used rap verse to dismiss DeAngelo Bailey’s suit, ruling that, “The lyrics are stories no one would take as fact/they’re an exaggeration of a childish act.”  Bailey, a 32-year-old sanitation worker, is portrayed in the song “Brain Damage” as a bully who pummeled little Em in a school bathroom in 1982—the same year the rapper’s mother unsuccessfully sued the Roseville Community Schools over the beatings her son allegedly received from Bailey.
