About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,

iBoo docking station cute, but not so spooky
by Dong Ngo

I don't know about you, but this thing won't scare me.

Speakal, maker of the unbearably cute iPanda, on Wednesday once again got (most of) us charmed with its new cute iPod docking station called iBoo

The audio system comes in the shape of a friendly ghost with design elements that work in most settings: from the bedroom to the office to the kitchen. In addition, the iBoo's small footprint and light weight make it suitable for toting along on the go.

Made to be both an audio player and a decorative piece, the iBoo incorporates design elements as functional components. The smiley mouth, for example, acts as the sensor that receives remote control commands. The eyes, on the other hand, are two mid- and high-range speakers, while the sub woofer is hidden below in the "belly" of the ghost.

The unit features rubberized feet to prevent rattling while the subwoofer is fired up high. Other than the remote, you can also control the volume by touching the iBoo itself. 

The iBoo works as an iPod dock with numerous included cradles. It also has a standard auxiliary 3.5mm input jack for connectivity to an external player. 

The iBoo is available now in red, white, and blue versions, with a price tag of $90 that includes a one-year manufacturer's warranty.
