Apple’s Jan. 27 Media Event Creates More Tablet Rumors Than You Can Shake a Stick At

Apple Event Invitation

Alright, Let's See It.

It is that time again, time for Apple fanboys to go all out and present as many unfounded rumors as they can possibly muster in a week’s time.

The time leading up to a new Apple presentation has historically been filled with massive amounts of wild stories about what new shiny product the Cupertino powerhouse corporation will be coming out with next.

Though I understand everyone’s enthusiasm for the upcoming event and the possibility of an Apple-branded tablet PC, I think that I am once again going to be underwhelmed by the news. Here’s why.

The Search For a Better Tag Line

Looking for a new tagline

I’ve been attempting to change some stuff around here on Worthless Genius, and I came to the conclusion that I need a better tag line. Though the current one does apply pretty well to what I talk about here, I think it’s about time to switch things up, and maybe head in a new direction.

A Night To Remember

Recently, Frostburg State University’s Center for Creative Writing held a community writing contest which focused on short “Spooky Stories”.

It’s been a long while since I’ve written something creative, so I thought I would make an attempt at this contest without regard for the prize. So, I set out and wrote this story in about 2 hours.

My wonderful wife also wrote a very exciting and subtle story for this contest. I think, for me at least, the knowledge that we were both working toward the same goal excited me, and made each keystroke that much more meaningful.

So, this past week was the due date, and I submitted both of our stories for the contest. Hit the jump to read my story, and feel free to leave comments.

Writer’s Guilt

Gah!!

Every creative person before me has identified and dealt with a little issue that I’m going to call Writer’s Guilt.  Writers Guilt occurs in two distinct–yet definitely intertwined–forms.

It occurs to me that everyone with a creative pursuit must go through this ordeal and come away making a choice in either direction.  I have yet to make that choice, and end up doing 50% on both sides of the coin, rather than picking one and going full force.

What can I do about this?  Let’s first identify the two sides of the story, then we’ll do a little research to find out what ways other writers suggest to get past this social and personal road block.

The podcast that has been held so highly in my heart as the best podcast ever made, Mysterious Universe, has returned after a long hiatus.

There was some speculation about the return, when the website changed to show that things were ramping up, and now we’re finally being treated with brand new episodes.

So how does the new “season” of Mysterious Universe stack up to the classic?
