Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Eartha Kitt
1927- 2008 Eartha Mae Keith (Eartha Kitt)
An American actress, singer, and cabaret star, Kitt is known for her role as Catwoman in the 1960s TV series Batman, and for her 1953 Christmas song Santa Baby. Orson Welles once called her “the most exciting woman in the world.”

Journalist: “can anyone live with Eartha Kitt?”
Eartha Kitt: “That’s not for me to decide. That for someone who decides to live with me to decide. Not for me.”
Journalist: “But are you willing to compromise? Within a relationship?”
Eartha Kitt: “To compromise? What is compromising? Compromising for what? Compromising for what reason? To compromise? For what? To compromise. What is compromise.”
Journalist: “If a man came into your life… wouldn’t you want to compromise?”
Eartha Kitt: *laughs loudly* “stupid…” *laughs more* “A man comes into my life and I have to compromise? …You must think about that one again.” *laughs again* “A man comes into my life and you have to compromise, for what? For what? For what? A relationship is a relationship that has to be earned! Not to compromise for. And that love relationships, I think they’re fantastic, they’re wonderful, I think they’re great, nothing in the world more beautiful than falling in love. But falling in love for the right reasons, falling in love… for the right purpose. Falling in love. Falling in love. When you fall in love… what is there to compromise about?”
Journalist: “Isn’t love… a union between two people? Or does Eartha fall in love with herself?”
Eartha Kitt: “I think, if you were to think about it in terms of analysing… yes. I fall in love with myself. And I want someone to share it with me. I want someone to share me with me. ”
Journalist: “Has that happened?”
Eartha Kitt: *shouts and waves goodbye to someone off screen* “Many, many times, in many ways.”

what most schools dont teach: Coding

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

It’s true — if I didn’t take that one class on how to code in C++ my first year in College, I wouldn’t have been able to pretty much do anything on this website. I wouldn’t have been able to teach myself how to program, and read other computer languages. Yes I was taught the basics, and I feel as though I’m still on the basic level, TheNext2Shine would have died in it’s first few months due to lack of funding and structure.

I don’t remember the first program I ever made. I don’t remember how to even code in C++ anymore.. regardless, it was definitely one of the most beneficial courses I ever took.

OXY – Man Sized Problems

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Man sized problems need man sized solutions.

Oxy face wash gets graphic with a web film that’s sure to get all pre-pubescent acne-ridden boys, and anyone who watches it, for that matter, to gleefully shout out “Gross!” and promptly forward this to everyone they know. Zit-prodding — and eventually zit-popping — abound in this spot by Naked Communications.
