brian cork’s iPhone 4.8 is NOT okay


today, I gathered myself just long enough to touch base with most of my coaching clients, and to visit with Mike Smoltz at the Northpoint Apple Store. Mike helped me with a new iPhone replacement since my current iPhone 4.8 was rendered interesting in, what is generally being referred to in Milton as “the accident”.

as most of you know, my beloved Big Black Bad-Ass Truck was totaled in the accident Tuesday. and, I’ll be musing through all of this in more detail in the coming week. but, I wanted to share a picture of my iPhone 4.8.

it was found by a police officer about sixty meters from the wreckage (mind you, I was struck from the side with my truck practically at a stand-still). evidently the hand-set evacuated the cockpit of my truck through an .5″  x 8″ opening between the passenger door and the truck frame. …or, it may have created that space. physics, time-space-contiunuum, etc.

all said, though… it (the iPhone) still worked.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

dream on an economy of physics and faith


Why things will change, you ask?

Apparently, at some point in 1980, Herbert Stein had stated that:

“If something cannot go on forever, it will stop”.

I can’t argue against that. And, I’ve both pondered it, and tried. However, I’m not convinced. This proposition, arising first in a discussion of the balance-of-payments deficit, is a response to those who think that if something cannot go on forever, steps must be taken to stop it – even to stop it at once.

But, what if, economics aside, gravity is some how involved, and other elements of physics? Faith, of one kind or another, must certainly be a factor.

Meanwhile, physics aside, I think being referred to as a “Chief Economist” would be cool.

Oh… And, by the way… I’m listening to: Dream On – Glee Cast Version) – and, a worthwhile comparison to Aerosmith’s venerable rendition.

“You have to lose to know how to win… Sing with me. Just for the day. Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away.

For what it’s worth, I’m also reading: The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde on my iPad. It’s an absolute and iconic piece of work.

We, after all, have our scandals. But, we must have faith in ourselves, and one another that we can defy gravity, on no economy of scale, and pull through.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
