my two favoritest tumblrs right now are as follows:

“He couldn’t stand another night with that smug hookah.”

Unhappy Hipsters simply takes images from old issues of Dwell captions them appropriately.

Selleck Waterfall Sandwich is so difficult to explain, you may just have to head on over and pick your favorite combo (I also like Veggie and Meatball).

Yeah, Thursday night’s a good night.

But Friday night’s better. I mean, this is what we did last Thursday.

The Cat + The Clippers


See? AWESOME FUN. Kitten was a trooper while we trimmed her “tag” fur. Then we cut my hair. YEAH!

Sure glad it’s Friday.

Howard Zinn, 1922-2010

It’s actually taken me off guard how sad I am that Howard Zinn died yesterday. I’m not good a eulogizing, so I’m not going to. Instead, I’m just going to post a lecture that Dr. Zinn gave last year and let that be that.


People shouldn’t be able to make these noises.

It’s like Hoth out there.

I’ve decided that my life (though previously dictated by Star Trek) is now to be commanded by all things Star Wars.

Even the weather.


Engadget Filming!

You know the site Engadget? Once a month they do a hourish long show with tech updates and product demos and stuff like that but SURPRISE they film it in New York. So Lindsey and I trotted over to pick up some free tickets and stood in line with all the other nerds and geeks excited to see bloggers in person.

It was fun! It was the first time I had ever been to a filming of a show, even if the show it’s on TV. There was this one part where they demoed this really cool helicopter that had four propellers and was controlled with an iPhone. [edit: apparently it’s called the AR.Drone] I took a video look!

Jim Carey?

some of you may have seen this totally redonk picture of my parents and myself. Well, get prepared for MORE pictures of my parents after the break!
