- 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 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 [...]
- Here’s To The Crazy Ones.
You all know it, I think? Maybe you weren’t there for the “Think Different” campaign, maybe you came onboard with the iPod and because Mac’s are cool. Well whatever the case you should either have already read this or you should read it now, or you should read it now because you have already read [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- Early Zeroes Nostalgia.
This would be another installment of “Maps And Notes” however, this one really only took place in the city I lived in. San Diego, circa 1999-2001. There was a lot of great different music being played around then. Remember this was the peak of Blink 182, so not much else besides Blink, UL, Fenix TX, [...]
- 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 [...]
- Awesomenents, The Cure For All.
So this weekend I was in and out of an ongoing funk that I would like to attribute to the still ongoing pounding in my head. All weekend I woke up feeling unrested, and chose to blame it on falling asleep weirdly to whatever I fell asleep to. At some point yesterday after complaining about [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 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 [...]
- Saving Detroit.
I’ve been meaning to post this for a few days. The other day Kyle and I were sitting around talking about our distaste for NASCAR and distaste for the Detroit bailout. Let’s face it, the only people to blame for the Big Three failing are the people in charge, the people who put them in [...]
- 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 [...]
- Detroit Bailouts.
So the auto bailout was postponed yet again today, which goes along with my life being postponed lately. I have been sick, barely able to do anything but watch Gossip Girl at 4pm. My apologies to all who it has affected. The person really affected is me, which is a lot NOT like the auto [...]
- 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. [...]
- 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 [...]
- House Arrest.
I am currently in my apartment, in Long Beach. That alone is more of an accomplishment than you think. You see I am inside a crime scene, blogging, just for you. I know, I’m a charmer. Sometime during my grueling afternoon of photo editing I missed 15+ squad cars, a fire truck and an ambulance [...]
- 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 [...]
- What Do You Do?
The lovely (and soon to be back in town for a week) Lindsay Strannigan sent me this a few weeks back, it’s hilarious, and has a special inside meaning to Lindsay, Brandon Chamberlain, and myself. You see, they like to think my job is their personal tech support, and usually it has to do with [...]
- 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 [...]
- The News Most Of You Know.
So this has been a few days forthcoming, but things are starting to look pretty stable, so I may as well put it on my website. I’m officially typing this from my new office, which is located in my house. Yes I will be operating Department Three from Long Beach now. It’s an exciting and [...]
- Maps And Notes I.
It’s been a while since I blogged, because I’m busy with things I will fill you in on later, but I brought out a post that I had stashed away as a draft and never finished. Today I finished it. I was recently listening to a few older records, and started remembering these amazingly vivid [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- Stealing Signs.
So as I was getting prepared to let you all in on my next post, I came across an interview a friend of mine did with a blog I am a huge fan of. Mark Penxa, interviewed by Uni Watch about the “Stealing Signs” project. Mark and I worked together on a few projects back [...]
- 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 [...]
- Skip Next Week, Start Fights.
This post serves 2 purposes. Some might say it has duality, but I don’t like to brag, I’m humble. The first is that next week I will be rafting rivers, yes more than one. So if you also will be rafting any of California’s greatest rivers (the Tuolumne and Kings) let me know, and we [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
Anyone who can be in contact with Jessie Poland, please let her know I want to marry her. Mostly because of the words she sings (and probably didn’t even write). P.S. Jessie Poland is the real name of Charlotte Sometimes.
- Wake Up, Mr. West.
Last night I had the absolute privilege to see the best musical performance of my life. I can only describe it as a one man hip hop opera. One man on stage, the band/orchestra in the pit below, and one broken spaceship. Kanye West just constantly impresses me with each and every thing he does, [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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, [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- I Don’t Know What This Is.
However it’s fairly cool. Oh, it is this. I believe what it does is take people’s Twitter’s from all over and randomly pulls in ones that use certain words in them. I still don’t know “what” Twitter is, but if I ever find out, I might think this is really amazing or something. This might [...]
- Triple Header, Dual Coast.
I use iCal to keep track of my schedule, and I also use it to subscribe to my favourite sport teams schedules. It’s a handy little feature available for almost any team, and having these calendars sync with my iPhone gives me a constant connection to what said teams are up to. I have these [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- So This Is Twitter.
Okay, I know I should know this, I know I should be using it, and I know I should have been on this train like months ago. Regardless, Chad Pearson has convinced me to give it a go, and I am officially Twitter’ing. For the record, I still have no idea what this all means. [...]
- This Is A No Blog Weekend.
So I’m down in San Diego for the weekend; celebrating my Mother’s birthday (got her an easel, acrylics, watercolours and related supplies), spending time with the niece, moving furniture around, saboteur’ing with some friends. I haven’t been on the internet most of the weekend, and hardly have even seen my computer. So this is me [...]
- Run-On Wednesday.
Here is what I am doing with my life in complete random run-on sentence form for the people who care about what I am doing with my life. I go shopping for yogurt and bread buy way too many things decide that I need to go green and buy reusable bags because they will fit [...]
- 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 [...]
- Sometimes I Take Pictures.
A few weeks back I spent a Saturday laughing hysterically, breaking into foyers and pointing my camera at a friend of mine. The goal for the day was some new publicity type shots for William Tell. William finally put a few of them up over at his MySpace (which he revamped) along with a new [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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?
- 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 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- 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 [...]
- Friday Discussion Question.
I know only like 4 people read my blog, and like 2 of them regularly comment, but I am having a discussion post anyway. Maybe I will do this every Friday; maybe I will do this every leap day. Who knows, really. I had every intention of this blog being more about my life and [...]
- Reason #239781 Why I Love Google.
Today Google gave all homeless persons in San Francisco a free phone number and voicemail. I have always been a pretty big supporter of Mayor Gavin Newsom (even with that whole affair scandal, he handled it pretty well) and the strides “The City” (On the west coast, this means San Francisco) has made as of [...]
- Random Recs 2.26.08
Coconut Records – Nighttiming – So I got addicted to “West Coast” way late in the game, and the full album finally came last week, and yeah… I’m pretty much in love with this record. Wearing A Watch – After some six years without, I am back to telling time on my wrist. Scissors For [...]
- Certain Things.
There are certain things for me that will always; render a photographic image in my mind, create a yearning for particular things, begin a private screening of out takes of life events in moving picture form, trigger an onslaught of emotions past. For me these things are typical; for me these things are atypical. Songs, [...]
- Apple Users v. The World.
I’ve been an Apple user for 20+ years, dating back to a Christmas morning in the 80′s where we woke up to a green glow in the living room. It’s been a bumpy road for those years filled with family members becoming Windows users, Apple allowing clone Macs, the ongoing battle trying to convince everyone [...]
- How To Flirt.
Who else finds this one of the most absolutely hilarious things ever? How To Flirt My thoughts upon first viewing: 1. “Hi” is a pick up line? 2. Being from Long Island is a “big red circle with a line through it”. 3. Shouldn’t a video that will be posted online about “how to flirt”, [...]
e·mo·cen·tric adj. 1. One attaining the view that music (specifically emo) is the center, object, and norm of all emotions. 2. a. A limitation in behaviour and/or preferences to music that is played by persons in tight clothes with a heavy emphasis on emotional themes. b. Only affected by the feelings invoked by “emo” because [...]
- Teaching Without.
Pretty amazing story about a teacher in the greater San Diego region who graduated High School, got an athletic scholarship to, and graduated from, college, became a teacher and taught High School for 17 years; all without being able to read, write or spell. John Corcoran “When I was a child I was just sort [...]
- Life Lessons 2.9.08
Excerpts from the lessons we all should have learned much sooner: #27356 Singing “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” at karaoke when the only words you know are the title of the song, is never a good idea. #81279 Upon the bridge of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”, when executing “The Move” (you know the one), [...]
- Freedoms In Education.
I was always one of those people that went through our public eduction system “spitting and cursing”, so to speak. Granted I had my troubles behaving, and I was a class clown of sorts, but more than either of these I was a rabble-rouser. I very early on found myself wanting to challenge the system [...]
- Glow In The Dark.
Is it wrong that I’m looking forward to this tour more than anything this year? It is the absolute perfect line up to quench my inner urban self. I am officially forming a crew to journey with me to this event, bright all over printed hoodies and sweet kicks will be mandatory, call or write, [...]
A few months ago I went to one of the West Coast premieres of a film called Helvetica in Laguna Beach. The film was directed by Gary Hustwit and is about, you guessed it, one of the most popular fonts ever, Helvetica. Kyle, Vincent and myself made the journey down to parts of the OC [...]
- Random Recs 1.24.08
Cloverfield – Of course. Weatherbox – Their new album American Art is quite lovely. Rocks a little heavy, lyrics like a prose. “Tom Brady is a Yankee at heart” Shirts – I will be making these, he just deserves it. He is everything a Bostonian isn’t.
So I saw Cloverfield last Friday. It was pretty much exactly what I was hoping for. The writing was spectacular, the character development was far deeper than what you normally find in Monster/Horror films, the cinematography was a work of art. I know a lot of people in the theatre I was in wanted it [...]
- Randall Paul Jenkins, Live.
So last night I debuted the “RPJ, Live” portion of this website. I am not yet one for the immediate Twittr phenomenon that is sweeping peoples lives, frankly that scares me, however I figure bringing a few of the things about me I do regularly update on the internet into one nice little page would [...]
I drive a red Mini Cooper S, it’s a lovely vehicle, apparently it works just as well on 2 wheels as the 4 I usually keep it on. Two Wheels
- The Fourth.
So the journalistic sub-genre of sports has been all a buzz this season about the San Diego Chargers Quarterback Philip Rivers. I am a proud supporter of “The Fourth” and of course am a huge Bolts fan, so it wouldn’t be shocking to learn that I sport the powder blue 17 on most Sunday’s. Granted [...]
