- Amor Vincit Omnia (Love Conquers All)
Amidst all the chaos that was the Vancouver Riots last night, one timeless image appeared. Shot by freelancer Richard Lam, and licensed by Getty (with the version you are seeing courtesy of the Vancouver Sun), the photo was taken amidst police lines, flailing mannequin appendages, and the always predictable cars on fire. Lam has some [...]
- Marketing Driven Creation.
There has always been the debate about how “Art” should be created. Plenty of “artists” claim art is not something that should ever be created with it’s profitability in mind. It’s always said that commercialism ruins the art, whether it be painting, photography, music, film, writing, etc. We got a big dose this year of [...]
- What would your musical password be?
A conversation today led me to the following thought: If you were to have one song, and one song only, be your only barometer on whether someone should be in your life, what song would it be?
- Top Singles of 2009.
This is the yearly series of top lists of the year that is leaving. Singles usually stand out from an album in a way in which a truly spectacular single (or two) can carry a mediocre album and make it good, or in some cases can make a great album seem mediocre by not living [...]
- A Rainy Day Full Of Summer Albums.
What a better way to kick off rain in LA, than to listen to pop albums (and some good old Americana)? Sherwood – Qu – iTunes I’ve know the Sherwood guys for years, dating back to working on their first full length when they were on Sidecho. They write some ridiculously catchy songs with gorgeous [...]
- A Little Update & Something For The Ears.
So I’ve been a resident of the “Ciudad” of Los Angeles for a whopping 4 weeks now, and I believe this is the first Friday night that I have stayed in. I owe that mostly due to the fact that I have great friends and way more people close enough for a last minute hang [...]
- NBC Interviews NAACP President.
Disclosure: I am “white”, a non-minority, am not a member of the NAACP, and the only discrimination I face on a daily basis is by those who hate people who are too awesome. I am not a huge fan of the NAACP. I understand why it was created, I understand all the good it has [...]
- A Question Of Racism?
I’m generally pretty quiet on the topic of racism, but fairly noisy on the topic of race v. ethnicity v. nationality, and this is kind of a weird mix of the both, so I found it interesting. I got linked to this article about this Korean kid in Canada who was kicked out of school [...]
- What’s So Great About Bob Dylan?
I honestly don’t get Dylan. He’s supposedly the most heralded songwriter alive, he’s supposedly this iconic standard that has experienced and found success through the entirety of the music industries existence. I have very good friends of mine who think this man is the most amazing singer/songwriter ever. People believe in this guy on an [...]
- Tours Aillaud.
The Tours Aillaud are some amazing towers in the suburbs of Paris, and they have an amazing almost “camo-pixel” look to them. I’m sure plenty of Parisian’s hate these things, but I find it’s definitely the beginning of a movement that saw the created environment being the integral theme of the architecture. Elime Aillaud finished [...]
- Paintings That Are Not Bad.
SO a few days ago, via Digg or some random Tweet, I came across badpaintingsofbarackobama.com. It’s an amazing idea, but the issue is this.. most the paintings aren’t bad at all, in fact some are spectacular. Insert random rant about people making a website with one function in hopes it becomes the next internet meme. [...]
- My Blog And I Broke Up, We’re Trying To Get Back Together.
My blog got all mad at me a few weeks ago, because I hadn’t taken it out in a few weeks, and because I hadn’t called in days, and the only thing it saw from me was a bunch of Twitter updates. So we broke up, we will see if we can be friends, and [...]
- Isn’t It Funny How Artists Ignore Artistic Progress.
So today I was reading a few weeks old blog by a band I very much respect and am a huge fan of. I won’t name them, because it has nothing to do with the band, maybe a little to do with what they were saying (also I’ve heard a ton of bands saying lately), [...]
- Gene Simmons Pwns Lefsetz.
Gene Simmons, you know of Kiss, was up in Canada talking about his record label. Call me crazy but I have always liked Gene. He is insane, and egotistical, but he believes in himself, and whatever he does and he realises failure will only be at his blame. It’s maybe not the way to go [...]
- An East Coast Update.
So I’m sipping on some Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and it’s quite lovely. That’s pretty much going to be the best part of this update, for some of you. I’m sitting in JFK, it’s snowing outside, it looks gorgeous. This is the second time I have been in New York in the past week. I head [...]
- Hey Remember Me? Or, The Least Coast Awaits.
I used to blog here. My name is Randall. How are you? So I have been ridiculously busy in the last few weeks, and there are good reasons for that. I have a ton of work, and I will be over on the East Coast for a couple weeks. Why? Why not! I will be [...]
- An Open Letter To Sigur Ros.
I wrote you once a few months back about this, and my email went un-replied. This is my second attempt. I ordered the Deluxe Edition of “Med sud i eyrum vid spilum endalaust”, I got my download, I even got my physical, and then months went by. You sent me emails to let me know [...]
- AP Versus Shepard Fairey.
Let me preface this by saying I used to love Shepard Fairey, and then I got to the point where I couldn’t stand him (because he started opening his mouth, as opposed to communicating through the medium that made him noteworthy). So at this stage in life, I can’t stand Shep, but I respect the [...]
- The Twenty-Point-Five.
So you know how it is over on Facebook, everyone has this “Things about me” thing going around like that time when your girlfriend got Mono, then all you friends did too (wasn’t that weird?). So, I got this originally from Chad and it was 16 things, and by the time Lindsay sends it to [...]
- Music You Should Like.
So Friday & Sunday (not, Saturday, because Saturday I drove to AZ and back, well I passenger’d mostly) I was helping my good friend Rohan out on his battle with MySpace and code. MySpace, albeit a great company to work with (yes, I’ve cashed a couple of their checks), can be kind of a mess [...]
Sometimes our Gov’t has been ectremely intelligent and creative in how it plans backbones of our daily lives, some times they are not. The Interstates project that Eisenhower was such a big proponent of is one example of the brilliance of logistics in Government, the Zip Code system is another pretty neat one. Here is [...]
- Reason #182809 Why I Love Letterman.
Vinyl. The man has musical performers on his show and doesn’t hold up the CD, he holds up vinyl. Gorgeous, circles of black, grooves of uncompressed, vinyl. And it’s not just once in a while It’s always. It must be show policy. I wonder if a band is allowed to play if they can’t get [...]
- Carson + G2 on Obama.
That there is the cover of The Guardian’s G2 section that ran earlier in the week. One of my favourite people on earth David Carson did the design, and inside is a multitude of other designers takes on POTUS Obama’s speeches. Nice little feature for the design geek and/or political dork.
- MuteMath + Jeremy Larson = Leno.
MuteMath is a simply amazing band. I was fortunate to see them play live a few years back, and it was everything a performance should be. Some bands just get it. These guys made a rather brilliant video that you might be familiar with, then one upped that by recreating it on Kimmel. My good [...]
- Top Secret Project.
I’m starting a project, it’s going to remain secret for the time being, however it needs people involved. If you are at all the creative type, which most of my friends who read the lame-ness that is my blog are, then let me know and be sure you are up for some mystery. We all [...]
- Things That Suck About The People’s Choice Awards.
I didn’t want to do this, but it’s pretty much necessary. 1. Queen Latifah. 2. The whole, “high five the people as you go to the mic” thing. 3. Kid Rock over Coldplay. 4. The constant “Obama won the election” references. Like the actors did anything. 5. Ellen over Letterman. 6. Robin Williams. 7. Two [...]
- The United Plates Of America.
So a few years back when I was the Creative Director of The Militia Group, I had an intern. Actually I had quite a few interns, but most were local and weren’t there for something like 2-3 months. This particular intern came all the way out to California to live and show up every day [...]
- The Two Oh Nine.
So the first post of a new year I guess. I have one last best of 2008 post to get up, and I’m trying to find a sensical way to let everyone in on the “2008 is dead” playlist I spent a good part of last week creating, but that will be in the future, [...]
- It’s The “Of The Year” Time Of Year. Part III (EPs).
This will be an ongoing journey through the best of 2008. Thank you for caring. Best Songs of 2008 1. Third Eye Blind – Red Star 2. Mike Dunn And The Kings Of New England – The Edge Of America* 3. The Jealous Sound – Got Friends 4. The Summer Set – …In Color 5. [...]
- It’s The “Of The Year” Time Of Year. Part II (Songs).
This will be an ongoing journey through the best of 2008. Thank you for caring. Best Songs of 2008 1. Augustana – Sweet And Low 2. Gavin Rossdale – Love Remains The Same 3. Mates Of State – The Re-Arranger 4. My Favorite Highway – Getaway Car 5. Jack’s Mannequin – The Resolution 6. Estelle [...]
- It’s The “Of The Year” Time Of Year. Part I (Albums).
This will be an ongoing journey through the best of 2008. Thank you for caring. Best Albums of 2008 1. Coldplay – Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends 2. The New Frontiers – Mending 3. Katy Perry – One Of The Boys 4. My Favorite Highway – How To Call A Bluff [...]
- Cat Cam.
In the ever revolving door that is the conversation of “What is art?” we have a new leading candidate to lead the side of “anything”. A cat. Yes, a cat. Two Pacific Northwest film makers decided to start experiencing the life their cat lives. It’s becoming an ongoing project tht has garnered a bunch of [...]
- And Here I Am.
So life has been crazy, I haven’t blogged in weeks (yet somehow people still come here), and I am finally feeling back on top of things. Here is the wrap-up: I was sick for a good solid 2 weeks, most of it came from breathing pure ash from some of the lovely fires in Southern [...]
- Less Politics, More Free Music.
So we elected an African American, and California has more uneducated and religious voters than I thought (I’m not insulting anyone, the exit polls showed those voting Yes on 8 were in fact both those things). Let’s all relish in the opportunity of being a country that can once again innovate and lead this world. [...]
- My Favourite Election Moment.
Aside from the time John McCain introduced Joe the Plumber (and he wasn’t scheduled to appear) and he was no where to be found, this was my favourite election moment. That’s right, 7-11 did their own polls, and they predict a huge sweep for Obama. The greatest part of this map is how they just [...]
- T Minus 1 Day.
So as I sit here on the phone trying to figure out why Los Angeles couldn’t get my voter information out to me in time, I have been traveling some of the series of tubes. Every once in a while people ask me why I’m voting for Obama, I guess it kind of shocks people [...]
- Stars N’ Stripes.
A few weeks back I was down in San Diego spending the weekend with my family, it was a great time and we even got out on the bay for a Brunch cruise. Along the way I managed to snag the following image on my G9.
- Political Applications.
I was on the phone with my good friend Tell today, and it happened to be at the moment that I discovered the Obama 08 iPhone application. I was utterly thrilled, cause you know, Barack knows the internets. After my moment of jubilation, and my pestering Tell about his Obama 08 BlackBerry application (or lack [...]
- Politics And Baseball.
The baseball season is almost, finally over, maybe. One of my teams managed to not lose 100 games (barely), and the other finds itself in a tough playoff matchup with the Angels. I’m excited to see the BoSox battle the Angels (I typed this as “The Angles” the first time, and it made me laugh [...]
Yesterday my bank failed, then it was sold to JP Morgan Chase. I don’t know what this means for my banking mindset, but B of A has been tempting me lately. Earlier today on the news I was watching a local report on WaMu and a reporter was getting the “word on the street” from [...]
- I’m A PC, But I Was Made On A Mac.
This one is just pure unadulterated bliss. Computerworld reports: Computerworld Several digital images that Microsoft Corp. has posted on its Web site to trumpet its new “I’m a PC” advertising campaign were actually created on Macs, according to the files’ originating-software stamp. Four of the images that Microsoft made available on its PressPass site today [...]
- Alan Greenspan, Still Ruining Our Economy.
With all the financial sector shakeups this last weekend with Merrill being sold to B of A, Lehman’s declaring bankruptcy after multiple failed attempts to salvage it, AIG being saved at the last second by the Fed, and the potential for WaMu (who is currently the official bank ro rpj.com, B of A here I [...]
- An Open Letter To Dawson Leery.
Dear Dawson, It always pissed me off how you screwed things up with Joey. Sincerely, Randall P.S. Go to hell Pacey.
- Things For Your Eyes.
Earlier Today Chad Pearson sent over a link to this lovely video of Mike Dunn playing at an instore in the FLA. I have raved about how great “The Edge Of America” is before, but I’m gonna do it again. Watch this while you are downloading it from Amazon or iTunes. As a bonus to [...]
- Chargers Sign Lance Armstrong.
So I am one of those twittering people, and as I have discussed with most of my close friends, I don’t really “get it” either. But I do it, and every once in a while I sure am glad I am. Yesterday was one of those days. This was why.
- Protesting, And Holding Signs On Street Corners.
Joel posted on his blog the following video. It stirred me up all kinds of crazy, so be forewarned. Just head over to Joel’s blog to see the video. I have a newsflash “peaceful protestors” of Denver, the moment you left the park (where coincidentally the law enforcement had no issue with you) and started [...]
- NBC & Heroes Sponsor Student Films.
Apparently the title of this post is true, because I said so, but not like college student films, we are talking high school, and we aren’t talking that rich private high school with the really great arts program. I love Heroes, it’s probably my favourite show on television (though HIMYM is pretty even), but this [...]
- Font Usage And Re-Usage.
Lately around my place we have been getting pretty into the new HBO mini-series “Generation Kill”, it’s based off a book by the same name, written by a reporter who was embedded with a Marine Batallion (First Recon, out of Camp Pendleton, CA). The book was fairly controversial for how it was received as well [...]
- Earthquake, Update.
So everyone in the LA area felt the 5.8 earthquake that hit Chino Hills. I am in Downtown LA and we felt it pretty good, our building is on rollers so it just kind of rolls with the punches. The most entertaining feature of todays events is when someone in the building gets on the [...]
- Today Is Officially The Day Of Photos.
So in addition to the earlier post about PGM and one of my photos being used, and the fact that today is the P Is For Panda Pandamonium event which includes 5 photos of mine in super large format (20″x30″), today HITS posted about one of my best friends William Tell, and used a lovely [...]
- PGM On Flavorpill And Filter Events.
Everybody’s favourite person Paul G. Maziar has a few of his events featured on Flavorpill, and one of them features a photo I took of Paul when we were in Mexico training to become Mariachis. He will be reading from his book “What It Is: What It Is” and Filter Magazine is presenting the events, [...]
- Official Pandamonium List.
I let you guys all know that I would essentially be taking part in my first showing of any of my art (though one time I did paint a 6 foot tall, 3 foot wide box white, and left it in a huge room for weeks), at P Is For Panda‘s “Pandamonium” event this Friday. [...]
- Back To Reality.
Well with the end of Summer vacations comes the unsettling return to work. I love work, but you do get a bit used to not having to know what day it is, and not really caring what small California highway you are on, or if there are bears along the way. Of course I tore [...]
Exactly a week from today P is for Panda will be having a little get together in the ATL to officially launch the label side of the Panda (I think this also will be one of the first places you can see the new line of Panda shirts, which I am still slacking on contributing [...]
- So I’m Back.
I braved whitewater, and lot’s of 3-4 hour drives, and had an absolutely amazing time enjoying the outdoors of Central and Northern California, along with all the heat. I recommend everyone go to a park, or something, and just lie down and look up and enjoy life.
- Catching Up.
No this isn’t about you and I catching up, this is a rant, be warned. Do you ever get those messages out of the blue on MySpace or Facebook from an old HS (or earlier, or later) friend, whom you truly have some good memories of, and have once over the past 10 years wondered [...]
- Just A Warning.
If you speak negatively about John Mayer, especially failing to actually say anything to back up your opinion (which is wrong by the way) and calling him over-rated and that he knows nothing about music, you will be deleted from my life. You don’t have to like the guys music, you don’t have to even [...]
- Long Weekend Wrap-up.
These are the things that owned my life this past weekend: Happy Hour, The Summer Gin, Superbad Scrabble, Ice Cream Sandwiches, Honey Wheat Pancakes, Realising Every Better Than Ezra Song Is Trying To Be Another Band, PBR, 21-1 Pool Volleyball Games, Beach Boys, Burgers, Fireworks, Cool Runnings, Betting On Olympic Trials, Falling Asleep On Couches, [...]
- Hands Free.
As I hope all of you living in California know, July 1 is the beginning of the hands free cell phone law. You cannot talk on a cell phone with it pressed against your ear, you can however take your eyes off the road to text, email, blog, check traffic, etc. Yes, I actually do [...]
- Do They Sell Mens Clothes Where You Shop?
… or, You Are Wearing A Girls Shirt. Now that we have all the title possibilities out of the way. Just the other night Kyle and I were discussing the ridiculousness of the V-neck. It’s pretty much a plague the likes of Von Dutch hats. Sure the V is comfortable, and shows off all that [...]
- Supersize The Homeless.
So the other day I stumbled across this promotion McDonalds (or McDonwalds, for those of you that need it) was running for it’s Angus 1/3 Pound Burger. If I may digress in this post, the film “Angus” is one of the better films you have never seen. It has a stellar soundtrack and the movie [...]
- New World Moral Order.
This is a very interesting map, created by Maurice Gomberg in 1941 (published 1942). Interesting the concepts written along with the map. It’s a shame a 3 branched “world police” couldn’t be established to help the betterment of mankind everywhere. Even if it could have, would it have helped?
- Mayer, May Not.
Dan Crittenden’s recent twitter post reminded me that I never posted the brilliance that is the following:
- Firefox 3.
Does anyone understand why the version of Firefox 3 is “220.127.116.11″? Mozilla, if you are calling it Firefox 3, make the version 3.X.X., thank you. EDIT: Answer, because Mozilla decided to direct me to the Firefox 2 download. Because their servers were probably on fire or something? That was awesome. Step your game up! So [...]
- U.S. Open Wrap-up.
I found it fitting not to publish this until the Open actually concluded, and seeing as Tiger just wrapped it up on the 19th hole today, this is long overdue: I was able to spend Father’s Day with my very own Father at the U.S. Open. It was a great day of golf, on a [...]
- Try Giving Them Some Credit.
Our country is so incredibly lost in how it treats young people. It’s no wonder young people in America feel lost or the need to act out. No one possibly thinks these people are capable of greatness. What happened to all the faith being in young people? What happened to giving everything to the future [...]
- Why John Mayer Is One Of My Favourite People On Earth.
Things like this: JM Takeover Of Gizmodo Liveblog Hey guys, John Mayer here. Are you guys excited? I’ve just commandeered the computer of my good friend, Jason Chen, who is also very very handsome. That means a lot coming from a guy like me. My other friend, Moby, is also here. Have you guys seen [...]
- A Twist Of The Update Knob.
So I moved my Photography albums over to my .Mac account, and yes this includes my Photography Portfolio. You might be like, “What Photography Portfolio?” And my reply would be, “The one I was cheating on you with.” Anyway, here it is. I also have an iPhone gallery set up where I will upload pictures [...]
- Random Recommendations 6.2.08
Mates of State – Re-arrange Us Utterly amazing, the best album they have ever written. Chock full of hooks, sugary, angelic, hooks. Chip Kidd – The Learners I finally finished this on my trip up North. It’s a powerful book, anyone who went to art school or designs will probably enjoy it, though I think [...]
- In Case You Were Concerned.
I am in Sacramento, CA, at the airport, wondering why no one uses Bonjour when they are on free open networks. Let’s examine that. How fun would it be to see 30 people randomly pop up on your Bonjour list in iChat and randomly IM you. Aside from the fact that it could be that [...]
- 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 [...]
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 [...]
- 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 [...]
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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- So We Can Build Up Our Future.
I personally do believe, that everyone is familiar with Miss Teen South Carolina already, so we can save that link/video/quote. Anyone that listens to Jim Rome also knows how much he loves to play said audio clip, so it should come as no surprise that I found the following image on Rome’s friend Tom Hoffarth’s [...]
- Los Angeles, On A Monday Night?
I usually don’t reserve my blog for things like this, however should anyone in the Los Angeles area be in need of an amazing evening, my good friend William Tell will be playing the Hotel Cafe at 8PM. It will be an amazing time full of pop songs, and people who have way more fun [...]
- Hate Junk Mail?
I have long heard stories of people who try to payback junk mail senders by returning the postage paid envelope full of their own propaganda and other random presort mail. I have never seen an idea as utterly amazing as this. Mailing bricks back to credit card companies? It’s amazing, sure it could get expensive [...]
- Twitter Wars.
So I was thinking about my recent adoption of twitter, along with Chad Pearson’s recent adoption of putting peoples names in his iChat status message, and I realised we could create some sort of uniquely annoying war. We could just randomly post untrue silly things about people (as @ them) and just create an amazingly [...]
- Political Piledrivers.
Last evening, the next President of the United States, the leader of the free world, appeared on WWE’s Monday Night Raw. Yes all of the potential President’s, somehow, were conned into appearing on a wrestling show. Every last one of their campaign managers should be fired. Next up, the decision on the Democratic nomination, live [...]
- My (Soon To Be Un-popular) Opinion On The War.
So I was doing some perusing of the internets the other day, reading this article. It’s not really necessary to click the link, the article doesn’t actually say anything interesting, it just rambles endlessly like our government representation (and this sentence), however it did get me thinking about the war and solutions. You should all [...]
- Darth Cheney Is Brilliant.
Dick Cheney absolutely stole the show at the Radio & TV Correspondents dinner last night. I’m sure he had a brilliant writer working for weeks on this material, but let’s face it the delivery is aces. My personal favourite is around the 3:50 mark, and it just gets better from there. If the last 8 [...]
- One Nation Under Banksy.
Banksy is back at his usual games across the pond. This time he is taking on the big-brother like CCTV that watches over all of London. The Daily Mail gives you the full story on how he set up scaffolding and tarps to pull this large piece off, all right under the watchful lens of [...]
- An Open Letter To Dodger Stadium.
Dear Dodger Stadium, You suck. Not because your stadium has 2 escalators in the whole place even though it was built on a hill, not even because you can only enter the stadium exactly where you are sitting, you suck for the fact that I cannot enjoy a game of baseball without almost dying. I [...]
- Oh, The Irony.
I found this brilliant advertisement on some website for the “Idiot Test”. It’s amazing when people are trying to get across a message on the topic of intelligence and then disobey the established rules of the English language. Is it an idiot test based on the fact no one intelligent would click on it? I [...]
- iPhone Optimized.
A few months back I made the switch to an iPhone optimized admin version of WordPress, so my Mobile posting would be easier. A few weeks back I added an iPhone version (basically just a stylesheet) of this entire blog you are reading. Those of you on iPhone’s already noticed the last one, unfortunately no [...]
- Lobbyists, Obama Won’t Take Your Money.
Daily Kos has a great post about Barack Obama not taking his money and why it has made him even more “prObama” (I made that up months ago, if it ever catches on, take note). The reason why? He is a lobbyist, albeit not one of the evil, trying to control politicians, lobbyists, but a [...]
- One More Day.
So a few years back Chauntelle DuPree from Eisley got together at a writing workshop with Zac Hanson and Jon Crosby from VAST to write/record. I’m not really sure the intricacies of it all, but from it came one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Chauntelle stopped singing for Eisley a while [...]
- Apple Is Awesome.
Recently Microsoft and Universal joint venture MSNBC.com ran an article it probably had to make a few calls about whether or not it should be published. The article basically said that Apple is one of the strongest, hippest brands and that Microsoft is boring and out-dated. Tell you something you didn’t know? I know, it’s [...]
- Sweded Tron.
First I should probably explain what “Swedeing” a movie is for those out there who aren’t familiar with the term. It all comes from Michel Gondry’s film “Be Kind Rewind” which is about a couple guys in a rental store who find themselves with a store full of erased tapes (that they caused). They decide [...]
- 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.
