- The Not-So-Prodigal Son Returns.
I am home, I flew in this morning, I went to work, I went to a stellar show at the Troubador. We Shot The Moon, William Tell and Everybody Else all put on a rather great show, I only wish I wasn’t the guy leaving before 11 because I haven’t slept a whole lot. I [...]
- All Quiet On The Western Front.
See what I did with the title there? That is some sort of writing instrument, I dunno which, but it’s clever, like me. It’s also mysterious and exhausted, also like me. So the blog has been a little lacking in interesting things lately, that is mostly because my non-blogosphere life has been a little too [...]
- Brand Tags.
From the world of “Weird things on the internet you aren’t sure what to do with”, comes Brand Tags. It’s an interesting sort of social interaction experiment I guess? Isn’t that what all of these sort of things are supposed to be? Anyway, it’s pretty fun for killing a few minutes. My personal favourite word [...]
A number of years ago in college, the fellow members of our secret society were in a computer lab, doing secret society things, when one of us stumbled upon a CD-R with the words “Y2KHAI” written on them. Since we were in a lab full of Apple’s we popped it in one and one of [...]
- Boston, I Am Yours.
It is official, I will be in the Commonwealth a week from today. You might be like… “Isn’t that kind of a late warning?” Yes, yes it is. I just purchased my tickets yesterday, so I really didn’t feel it was official until then. I fly in on the redeye Thursday night, and have a [...]
- I Watched Jericho, Too.
I found this old article from Australia about what our Congress really met about behind closed doors 2 months ago. Offspring Of Criminals Theorists wrote “Not only did members discuss new surveillance provisions as was the publicly stated reason for the closed door session, they also discussed: The imminent collapse of the U.S. economy to [...]
- Those Liberal Californians.
Today the State of California Supreme Court overturned a ban on same sex marriage. While I personally have had a rather vague opinion on homosexuality and even same sex parenting (I simply have beliefs on all sides of this debate), one thing no one can argue these days is that if we offer benefits to [...]
- Manny Ramirez Is My Favourite Ballplayer.
The reasons why are far too numerous to list. Basically Manny is awesome, the whole Manny being Manny is the most entertaining thing in baseball these days. A few days back Manny was talking about how he could/should win a Gold Glove for how he plays the Monster. He really does play it well, and [...]
- I Am Not A Library.
Yet. I accrue books at a rate equal to the exports of small countries. Setting aside the time to spend with a book is to many a luxury, I suppose. A moment to focus on words actually printed on white pages bound together without any connection to the internet. I still find myself battling to [...]
- All Of Politics Are A Fad.
Joel posted an interesting take on the shape of Politics in his life, I was going to reply, and I thought I would do so here. You should probably read his post if you want this to make the most sense. I support Obama, I hope every day for him to be our next President, [...]
- What It Is, Is A Party.
Tonight in Long Beach will be Paul Maziar’s book release party for his collaboration with Matt Maust, “What It Is: What It Is”. It’s at Open, on Fourth, sometime around 8pm. There will be adult beverages, and probably a lot of people who are cooler than me, and I hope some who are boring. There [...]
- 10 Ways Hillary Clinton Can Still Win.
. . . . . . . . . . (you get it, right?)
- Twitter Has Taken Over My Blog.
So I have noticed now that I Twitter, and now that I added Twitter Tools to my blog, my daily digest posts of my daily Tweets are taking over my blog. It’s kind of lame actually, to me at least. I really wish I could have Twitter Tools do a weekly digest, so my blog [...]
I sat down tonight to watch the first episode of the new season of This American Life. TAL is a program about people and their stories, it first aired as a radio program on public radio (which is where the sometimes infamous parrot story originated) and last year was turned into a television show by [...]
- Be Your Own Apatow.
So a while back Cracked had this brilliantly funny satire on making your own Judd Apatow movie. Let’s face it, Apatow rules comedy right now, and while I don’t back every film he does, he knows who some of the best character actors of today are. In honour of me finally seeing Forgetting Sarah Marshall, [...]
- Fenway Time Lapse
Lovely look at the crowd filing in, field being prepared, baseball being played, beer being drank, Manny being Manny, Red Sox winning, gorgeous day/night in Boston, crowd exiting in Time Lapse. Video by Tom Guilmette.
- AT&T Hotspots, Free For iPhone.
AT&T just opened up all their hotspots in the US to iPhone users. B&N, The ‘bucks and more, now free. You might remember a while back they gave free service to anyone who has their internet service, and pledged to open it up to mobile as well. They have finally done that latter. I am [...]
