Nazi and Justice, Two Coexist!

The Nazi within me thinks it's time to take charge,
The world's a mess; people are crazy.
The Nazi within me wants windows shut tight,
New Locks put on the doors. There's too much
fresh air, too much coming and going,
The Nazi within me wants more respect. He wants
the only TV camera, the only bank account,
the only really pretty girl. The Nazi within me
wants to be boss of the traffic and traffic lights.
People drive too fast, they take up too much space.
The Nazi within me thinks people are getting away
with murder. He wants to be boss of spirit murder.
He wants to be boss of bananas, boss of white bread.
The Nazi within me wants to wash their hands, sit up straight,
pay strict attention. He wants to make certain
they say yes when he says yes, and no when he says no,
He images everybody sitting in straight chairs,
people all over the world sitting in straight chairs.

Tom Anderson


Tom Anderson
Tom Anderson is an American internet entrepreneur. His most notable achievement is the founding of the social networking website ‘MySpace’. Known as ‘MySpace Tom’, Anderson became the default picture of the website that became the favorite website of millions of people.

Anderson was born on 8th November 1970. As a high schooler, Anderson was a computer hacker with the pseudonym ‘Lord Flathead’. He was able to crack the security code of Chase Manhattan Bank, an incident that even led to the FBI coming to get him. However they could not arrest him as he was underage. He attended University of California, Berkeley where he studied Rhetoric and English. Later on he joined a band as their lead singer. He then gained a degree in Critical Film Studies from the University of California in Los Angeles.

He started off in 2000 with a job as product tester and copywriter at a digital storage company named XDrive. This was where he met his future business partner Chris DeWolfe. After XDrive went into bankruptcy, Anderson and DeWolfe started ResponseBase, a direct marketing company which they sold off to eUniverse in 2002. The next year Anderson started working on a social networking site along with some former eUniverse employees which became known as MySpace. It was intended for connecting fans with their favorite bands and sharing music. You can also make blogs, interactive profiles and write posts. By 2006 it had 106 million accounts and 230 thousand new accounts made every day. MySpace started gaining popularity eventually becoming the most renowned social networking website in the U.S. It is listed in the slot number 85 of Alexa Top 500 Global Sites in 2010. MySpace retained the position of most popular social networking site till 2008 until its competitors such as Facebook took over. Anderson was the default friend on MySpace; by September 2008, he had 237,991,950 friends. People called him ‘soul of the website’. Tom also appeared as a cameo in the comedy ‘Funny People’.

Anderson was the president of Intermix Media which was the replacement of eUniverse after being sold to News Corps. In July 2005, MySpace was sold to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corps for 580 million dollars. He was replaced as President of News Corps in 2009 and by 2010 Anderson was not the default friend on MySpace anymore. His name was changed to the profile ‘Today on MySpace’ or ‘TOM’. Anderson also has profiles on other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

With a net worth of 60 million dollars, Anderson has proved himself as a successful entrepreneur. With his trait of opportunism, Anderson saw the gap in social networking and created a website that instantly appealed to the masses. It was his genius mind that could recognize the aspects of social networking that would attract people. He knew his target audience and made a site that would meet their needs. He was the brain behind MySpace (along with DeWolfe, of course!) which became the sixth most famous website in the world.

The Love That Never Fails By George Matheson


There is an eye that never sleeps
Beneath the wing of night;
There is an ear that never shuts
when sinks the beams of light.
There is an arm that never tires
when human strength gives way;
There is a love that never fails
when earthly love decays.

The Love That Never Fails By George Matheson


There is an eye that never sleeps
Beneath the wing of night;
There is an ear that never shuts
when sinks the beams of light.
There is an arm that never tires
when human strength gives way;
There is a love that never fails
when earthly love decays.

Wonders and Poetry

To chuckle mindlessly,
to get up in the morning to smile,
to erase the pain left on the face
of the survivors,
moving forward-
is what we approve?
You believe in (Jidu) the Christ,
I trust (Quanwei) the mighty power,
we will cook on the stove,
eating meals such as cauliflower!
Two brightest stars in the morning sky,
Eyes draw lust,
Birds spread their wing to sing,
Left behind the warm pillow in between,
Heaven in your mind at last?!

On Blocked Exits Posted on June 7, 2013 by emanita01 at Fodder4Thought

When you are convinced that all the exits are blocked,
either you take to believing in miracles
or you stand still like the hummingbird.
The miracle is that the honey is always there,
right under your nose,
only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realize it.
The worst is not death but being blind,
blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous.

~Henry Miller

A Fansy To Enjoy!

A flight away from Australia,
Uganda in East Africa features
rare Mountain Gorilla, multiple lakes,
and extinct volcanoes for hiking.
Uganda's borders are Sudan, Congo,
Kenya, Rwanda, and Tanzania.
Lake Victoria borders Uganda to the south.
Uganda lies in the equator and has three areas:
a desert region, swampy lowlands,
and a wooded, hilly plateau.

For Fathers On Father's Day by Clarence Prince


Seeing as Father's Day is drawing near
Prepare good fathers for the high chairs
Where to receive some genuine cheers
For how much they've truly cared
And for the time that they've shared
Doing the duties of sensitive fathers
Not like those men who are careless
Living their lives tough and heartless
Standing together let's not be scared
Of saying what should've been declared
Truth is there are some who are called fathers
Although they aren't doing the duty of fathers
Even though by name they are known to be
So far their fatherly duty is still yet to be seen
Father, if yesterday you were going your own ways
But today you become a father change your ways
Prepare to start taking on the duty of a father
Be aware this could mean it's time to work harder
With the woman whose child you are the father
Given that God has been the very first father
He has exemplified us of how to take care
In every way that we should live and share
Similar to how He does it for all
Even as ‘He marks His sun to rise
On the evil and on the good,
And sender the rain on the just
And on the unjust (Matt5: 45) '
I will say three cheers due
Unto all the caring fathers
Though I wish every father
Good, bad or unlikable
Happy Father's Day!
