This post feels a tad more self-indulgent than most. I saw a banner ad for a tv show called SnowPiercer. There might have been sone video to go with it. It looked ridiculous. I looked further. According to Wikipedia the premise is thus: Snowpiercer is set in 2021, seven years after the world becomes a frozen wasteland, and follows the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a perpetually moving train consisting of 1001 carriages that circles the globe 2.

I wrote the following on January 19th, 2016. I feel it has aged well. A journalist suggested writing down what you believe before the inauguration.

However since I’m continuing the experiment of living life as if social media doesn’t exist, well except for Linkedin, I’m sharing this here: I saw it first on a YouTube ad and sought out the original video on Alaska Airline’s youtube channel. It’s one of the better uses of a licensed song for advertising. Fun, clever, and comforting for those who want to fly. [Read More...]
