- Fantasy Baseball 2008.
It’s that time of the year again, baseball is upon us. I love baseball, but it’s hard to be really into every game, every day, every second, that’s why a fantasy league that you set the lineup once a week is perfect. Chad and I did this ESPN league a few years back, and we [...]
- Red Sox Mid-Season Exhibition Games.
Today we (Kyle, Brandon, Josh x3, Yoori and I) took the trek over to Dodger Stadium, which while it’s parking and entrance set up are the best designed public use facilities in Los Angeles (which still doesn’t say much), the rest of the stadium set up is turrrrrible (like Charles Barkley). Apparently someone there thinks [...]
- 132.5 Years Of Free Internet.
So Kyle recently informed me, and then the world (via blogdom) about Charter’s “Internet For Life” auction. You can read his thoughts at his blog, they are not kind to Charter, nor the people bidding. If you dig into the rules about said contest, you find fun tidbits like; if Charter sells their service after [...]
- Thanks, Lindsay.
Lindsay made some post on her blog about her new “Etsy” store, and I being a man, had no idea what this was so I checked it out. I still don’t know what it is, but I am now stuck deciding upon my next table purchase. Normally I would not provide links to something I [...]
- Things Change, Dawson, People Change.
James Van Der Beek has been making strange resurgences in my life lately. A few weeks back it was randomly coming across Varsity Blues on TV, in HD (so we had to watch). Just a few nights ago it was some drunken late night Dawson’s Creek viewing, and debating if we were on Dawson or [...]
- The Papal Stage.
I’m don’t support a lot of things about the Catholic church, but they have the best backdrop ever. Purgatory has definitely done more good in religious inspired art, then in scaring people into not sinning.
- I Definitely, Didn’t, Not Find The Cloverfield Monster.
I know, I know… the boy who cried “I found the Cloverfield monster” strikes again. Don’t believe me, that’s fine, but remember how that whole “boy who cried wolf” thing ended. The destruction of New York City, that’s how. You tell me, if this isn’t the Cloverfield monster, what is it?
- I Hate Sarah Marshall.
The love affair with this film continues today, because I just realised I never passed along the link, yeah THE link, the one you need in your life, the one that made me happy, the one that saved that puppy from the burning fire, the one that invented Gin & Tonic’s. Yeah that one. Brilliant.
- Random Recs 3.22.08
Solea – Finally We Are Nowhere – Texas Is The Reason recorded one of the most perfect albums ever, Garret Klahn can do no wrong. Death Cab For Cutie – I Will Possess Your Heart (Single) – I started listening to this “single” and the vocals didn’t come in till the 4 minute mark, Death [...]
- Remembering, Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
So FSM comes out next month. I’m rather excited, and you may remember my earlier post about FSM, if not head over there to get filled in on what will either be my favourite film of 08, or the end of my crush on Kristen Bell. Recently in the village of Los Angeles the FSM [...]
I came across this lovely blog the other day, which makes fun of all the very apparent photoshop jobs done in marketing. This is the kind of stuff I thought only my friends and I geeked out over, well this stuff and fonts, and Rachel Bilson, who coincidentally is featured in a post at the [...]
- Reason #549607 Why I Love Google.
- I Don’t Really Know The Point Of This.
I like the Daily Mail, it’s a website I frequent a lot, but never directly check daily. Perhaps I should, but then the thrill of it would wear off. I like thrills, such as the thrill of scouring the internet about Project Runway Season 4, after the entire season has aired and you just watched [...]
- Urban Meyer Is Amazing.
The Floriduh (SIC, Ed.) Gators won the National Championship not long ago, in two sports. They recently became pretty lame in both sports, but I really don’t expect that to last long (or I really don’t expect the current teams to survive if they keep this up). Basketball Coach Billy Donovan locked his players out [...]
- I’m Not One For Whiskey, But I’ll Drink It Down Tonight.
That title is a lie, I love Jameson, however the title was amazingly fitting considering today is St. Padraig’s Day. In order to celebrate, I will leave you with this video of a pretty great song which I stole said title from it’s lyrics like a child with no morals. Damion Suomi – Ghost You [...]
- The Dreamers.
Long Beach is filled with dreamers. Not dreamers like you or I, but dreamers who digress towards an inappropriate dose of things that cannot be measured. Or so we should be so arrogant to believe. I dream for success, for a certain level of fame so I can ignore it all with humility, for some [...]
- The Whatever Bias.
So last week I was reading this article on MSNBC.com, and I sort of found it an interesting read while at the same time something tripped me up about it. Finally over this past weekend I realised what it was: This is news? Let me get this straight, some guys theory based on the fact [...]
- Your Blog Is Boring.
Not yours so much, but Kyle Davidson’s. He used to be an entertaining person, complete with a blog, but then he got boring (like Sam Morgan). He will blame this on things such as; not having a laptop, having a job, Michael Vick being found guilty, being busy traveling. But I call rubbish on it, [...]
- Reason #371200 Why I Love David Letterman.
Last night on Letterman, he discussed Eliot Spitzer’s penchant for “banging whores”. Now Letterman has no problem with the practice, he just doesn’t want him doing it on the state’s time. He also took up issue with Spitzer debating what he will do now that the truth has come out, rather than step down immediately [...]
- Random Recs 3.11.08
We The Kings – We The Kings – Yes I love pop music, so sue me. Accepted – I still haven’t seen it, true. However I lied about seeing it last week, this weekend watched a good 45 minutes of it, and set the DVR to record it for next weekends viewing. Justin Long + [...]
- The Interstates.
I love the fact that in our nation, you can get on one highway and drive to the other coast. It’s brilliant. I hate the fact I can’t drive to work (25 miles) on one highway, but hey Los Angeles only ever completed like 1/4 of the highways planned for it. The Interstate system was [...]
- 1 Sign You Shouldn’t Hire This Guy.
So a few weeks back this was posted on the internet and has made its rounds, it has become pretty popular not because what the guy is saying is right (or necessarily wrong), but because of how he says it and how offensive he tries to be. When it comes to people who work on [...]
- The Steve.
Someone had way too much time on their hands, but for that I am thankful.
- SEO v LOL.
SEO, means Search Engine Optimization. Every competent web person is usually savvy with this term, and will tell you what you can do to increase the likelihood that someone finds you on the internet (or better yet, how you can pay them to optimize your page). Then there is the famous “Google Algorithm” and how [...]
- The Making Of (A) Champion.
I am a pretty big nerd when it comes to typography, or for the non Graphic Designers of you, the world of fonts. I abide by the somewhat common belief that any designer can get by on about 6 fonts in their life, 6 fonts is pretty much just about what I’ve used to complete [...]
- Life, As It Were.
A swirling mass of denim and associated items, digital cameras, way too many energy drinks, Rock Band injuries; that is my life as of late. It isn’t always the adventure it sounds like; which is more than it should be. For every moment when I realise I need time away from something, there is a [...]
Over the weekend I added some various, random, writings that span all the way back to 2002. For those of you not in the know, 2002 was when blogging was invented*, and I was right there changing the world. If you peruse these archives, you will find; early morning drives, Cheetah conservation, vague reminiscing, 11 [...]
- Figure 8.
A “Figure 8″ by definition is “a circle that turns around upon itself, on its side is a symbol for infinity”. Figure 8 was also an amazing album by the late Elliott Smith (Good Will Hunting, Heatmiser). The LAist recently ran a story about the renovation of the “Elliot Smith Wall”, which was of course [...]
