Nice Christmas gifts!! #Christfmas ...

The reports are all over that Major League Baseball’s long-delayed report on the Oakland A’s in Oakland, and if they should be given permission to leave Oakland for San Jose, will be released “soon,” and the verdict is that the A’s will be given permission to move to San Jose. If Oakland Mayor Jean Quan doesn’t want to give Oaklanders...

Christmas is officially here, and it’s marked by Santa Claus’ visit and gifts, and Christmas Eve Mass, what was called “Midnight Mass” but was moved up to 10 PM to give the Pope more time to rest for his Christmas Day Speech. Pope Benedict XVI has practiced for over 60 years. This year, the Pope asked the faithful to look beyond the “superficial...

Merry Christmas everyone! #Christfmas ...

The NORAD Santa Tracker has Santa Claus in Lincoln, Nebraska as of this writing. His next stop is Des Moines, Iowa. What’s the NORAD Santa Tracker? This blogger has blogged about the cool service many times. Here’s a brief: The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement for children to call Santa misprinted...

A friend on Facebook wanted to find the full, original, uncut version of Frank Capra’s Classic It’s A Wonderful Life online. Fortunately, YouTube has it, and the version’s embedable, so you can see it above. It’s A Wonderful Life, starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, is the perfect movie to remind us all of the meaning of Christmas. Here’s...

Why are women jealous of fit women? Ask Megan Avalon. Women bodybuilders, fitness models, and female athletes tend to bring out extreme views, especially from, well, other women. Take what US Women’ Soccer Star Hope Solo had to deal with on Dancing With The Stars 2011 when she was called “too muscular.” Or take this blog post where the author starts...

David Letterman was nice to Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn. In the great tradition of female guests on the show (most notably Jennifer Aniston, Eva Longoria, and Jessica Alba) Lindsey Vonn came on the The Late Show With David Letterman and made an obvious attempt to show her legs. And I mean even to the point of holding up her skirt and pushing it back to make sure you...

After the USA Women’s Soccer Team was eliminated in a most-dramatic finals match against Japan, it looked like the team’s spark plug Abby Wambach would not gain the spotlight she so rightly deserved, and watched as her extraordinary teammate Hope Solo grabbed the many opportunities for stardom (not to mention a whopping increase in Twitter Followers) that came...

TechCrunch Senior Editor Sarah Lacy, who I first met when she was hanging with then-Valleywag Editor Owen Thomas, is the first former TechCrunch staffer (there are a lot of them: Michael Arrington , Paul Carr, Heather Harde, and Lacy) to actually announce that she’s going to announce a first funding round for a new venture – a tech news website called PandoDaily.com. Right...

In 2007, this blogger made a video question for the CNN YouTube Republican Debates for Ron Paul, and it was based on the work of Alan Bernstein of the Houston Chronicle, where he wrote: Texas congressional candidate Ron Paul’s 1992 political newsletter highlighted portrayals of blacks as inclined toward crime and lacking sense about top political issues. Under the headline...

The Indianapolis Colts shocked Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Field Thursday 19 to 16, and moved their record to 2-13. And they did it with just enough defense (the Texans were held to under 300 yards, with 283), just enough offense, (Quarterback Dan Orlovsky, replacing the injured Peyton Manning, threw for 244 yards), and timely plays to win. The victory was the Colts...

Here’s a television recommendation that is definitely a nice Christmas present. While searching Netflix for a new show and series to get into my boyfriend and I found the show Jericho. Now, although the show only aired from 2006-2008 and had two seasons – this show is addicting. We are in the first season about 21 episodes in, and it is probably one of...

Zennie62 will be in Las Vegas for CES 2012 between January 8, 2012 and January 15th 2012, and looking through my press emails, the trend and buzz is concerned with mobile and with 3D. On top of that, there are several interesting conferences within the Consumer Electronics Show that are of note. First off, this blogger’s focus will be on “Digital Hollywood,”...

Twitter loves Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. For a movie, let alone a brand, Twitter can be Heaven or Hell. One well-timed, creatively written tweet can cause a flurry of re-tweets and copycats that can trash a movie just as it’s released. Or, Twitter can be the device that makes an unknown movie a blockbuster, or keeps a film, like Scott Pilgrim Versus...

Whatever Monta Ellis did, Erika Ross Smith’s just opened herself up to a World of bad media. The problem with what seems to be a flurry of sexual harassment claims and charges in the New Media Age is they are starting to make the accusers look really bad. Such is the case with Erika Ross Smith and her claim this morning that Golden State Warriors Guard Monta Ellis...

Reuters and The Chicago Tribune have both reported that Kim Jong-il’s body is going to be embalmed. This means that his body is going to be on display under glass for a while: “”It’s all about idolizing (the Kim family). They keep their bodies preserved to keep the regime intact,” said Hong Soon-kyung, a former North Korean ambassador...

The video below by “dukkhaboy” on YouTube gives some of the flavor of last night’s Oakland City Council Hearing, as Port Of Oakland Executive Director Omar Benjamin talks against the Occupy Oakland Port Shutdown Action of last week, (and in support of a wild resolution to grant extraordinary police powers to prevent future Port shutdown attempts), and...

GOP House Speaker John Boehner (R, 8th District Ohio) should be spanked, horse-collared, tarred and feathered, and just plain slapped in the face for his total fuckhead behavior at the expense of the economy and for nothing more than petty politics. Speaker Boehner – and some of his Republican followers – can’t stand the news that the U.S. Economy is...

The news that Actress Debra Messing is separating From husband Daniel Zelman comes as no surprise to this blogger. Not for any inside info on their marriage, but because of something that hit me this weekend. It seems like the holidays – or maybe the 2011 Christmas Season – brings out the worst in relationships. Last Saturday I saw a friend who was crying...

Ever been “so hungry that you could eat a horse?” Well at the end of November President Obama sparked a lot of controversy when he legalized the slaughtering of horses for meat. Obama signed the 2012 Agriculture Appropriations Bill on November 18, 2011 that allowed the continued slaughtering of what has been over 100,000 horses a year on American soil....

On this first day of the Festival of Lights, just wishing you and everyone a very Happy Hanukkah! Today, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama offered these words: “Michelle and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Hanukkah around the world… We believe that through faith and determination, we can work together to build a brighter, better...

Morrie Turner is the symbol of Oakland’s unique way it expresses its diverse culture. The famous cartoonist best known for his Wee Pals cartoon creations, is as much a part of Oakland’s Soul as the Tribune Tower, Lake Merritt, and the Oakland Coliseum. But, even though Turner’s Wee Pals wasn’t ran in many newspapers in 1965, and because of the...
