About Me

I live in Houston, if you can call this living. I teach history to 11th graders. They don't appreciate my genius. I'm an active Democrat really only around election time (knock on doors, make a few phone calls, maybe donate a dollar or two if I think it'll do some good). I'm 48. I'm datin a real special gal right now, but if I don't watch my step I may have to edit out this sentence. I have pretensions toward being a director of performance art, although I've only put on one show (as of Dec 2011). I'm currently working on a second show. Our group is called Invisible Lines (www.invisiblelines.net). I mostly drink Shiner Bock beer because it's a mouth full of heaven. I'm a nut about George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr, and John Dewey. I've resisted for three years saying "I told ya so" about Barack Obama (but then again, I supported Biden in '08 so my room for complaining is minimal). That said, I'll certainly vote mediocre over evil any day of the week. I want Elizabeth Warren to run in 2016. And a pony. I totally want a pony.

Crash Course

http://www.youtube.com/user/crashcourse

Great new series on world history. Probably more interesting for history teachers than students. But I'll find out, cause when I'm teaching world history next year, I'll be showing these vids to my kids each week.

Below in this discussion thread will be links to the individual installments.

I hate it when Australians talk. If you want to be taken seriously, drop the goofy accent, Dundee.

And the same goes for you Kiwis. If you've ever seen an episode of Xena or Hercules, you know that most Kiwis can lose that lazy accent with the randomly reassigned vowel sounds as long as you pay 'em to. So get with the program, you losers. And you shut up too, Scotland. I'm coming for you next!
