like Lenin in exile, i await great things

please welcome me into the world of daily car communicating, toll roads with bad interchanges, and the throngs of drivers handicapped by local driving customs, hopefully without handicapping anyone in real life.

what, you ask, is this nonsense? please to enjoy, i explain. whether for my unsolicited educational benefit, or for money alone-- not for me, that would be too appropriate-- instead for the hospital of my employ, i am too spend the next month working at the premier community hospital in Framingham, MA. whether it will prove to be a microcosm of internship and residency combined into one harmonious work of art, moving at a relaxed pace of an empty hospital by the lake, or something else entirely remains to be determined.

bizarrefeed

is there a difference between cool and bizarre? often this distinction is blurred in the media, and now it appears that buzzfeed, the preeminent source of buzz and trend detection, has joined the ranks. it was hoped to be a productive synthesis between viral media and social science, but has now become to be filled with noisy material, in large part composed of irrelevant youtube clips. even in the age of the internet, less is more.
