Destroyer - “Bay of Pigs” I’ll...
Esquire is the same as Maxim, right? Like, same byline of “if you’re a dude, do the opposite of everything we write and you should be okay” right? I was just reading their list of whatever amount of books all men should read and Bukowski’s Women was one of them and I said “oh bullshit” out loud.
I didn’t even think about the royal wedding thing until Emily announced just ten minutes ago that she’ll be staying at her mother’s tonight so that she can wake up early and watch it on TV. I guess this is some kind of comeuppance for a few times I went to bars at 10 AM to watch the World Cup or something. The last time I thought about Prince William was June 21st, 2003. I lived...

bmichael: I’ve seen this on my dash quite a bit the last few days. I (honestly, really) have to say, I don’t see what the big deal is. More specifically, I don’t find this sad or slightly tragic. I don’t find the protagonist at all sympathetic or appealing. I don’t know why anyone likes this or cares about it. What is wrong with you? If you don’t feel like looking at the somewhat long webcomic,...
Emily: We need a flash flood plan! Me: Okay. We need an inflatable life raft, first aid kit, drinking water, life jackets, flares, a flashlight - waterproof, rations, matches, cigarettes - Emily: I was thinking more we just plan to grab Millie and run to the top of the parking structure across the street. Me: We at least need ponchos. And a cat poncho.
Two quick stories about cutting in line.
I. When I was six years-old, my dad took me to Dairy Queen. While waiting in line, a large, barrel of a man in flip-flops tapped on my dad’s shoulder and told him that we had cut in front of him. My dad denied that we had cut in front of him, that we had not seen him there, and he was mistaken. The barrel man became hostile at the suggestion that he might be wrong. My dad is a small man,...
Now you don’t ever need to see another commercial for anything.

In my dream world: Sierra reemerges as its own sovereign game developer/publisher and makes a Doctor Who adventure game. Them or Lucas Arts.
Dante forgot to include the layer of Hell that is full of just the people who post in the Rants and Raves section on craigslist.
kind of pointless to take a shower when you aren’t going anywhere even more pointless when you just put on the same clothes you were wearing before where did you put the nasal decongestant?
The two part episodes of Doctor Who, Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit, shouldn’t win a BAFTA or anything, but they’re both two hours of some of the best TV watching I’ve ever bothered to do. Maybe it’s the sinuses talking and legal drugs talking but here it is: if you like Doctor Who (the new ones), you can’t disparage video games that try to tell stories, like, at...

Man, the Doctor is like, all tempered emotion and stuff, huh?
I wrote this over a year ago and I still can’t. Why I can’t eat strawberry-banana yogurt anymore. The alarm sounds. I hit the snooze button. The alarm sounds again. It’s the “Island Getaway” ringtone on my cell phone. I’m confused by the third snooze request. No matter how many times I do it, pressing such a small button when so much is at stake takes getting used to. I’m up by 8:30 or...
Rereading the Bible Silmarillion.
Poor minds talk about people. Average minds talk about events. Great minds talk about ideas. -Eleanor Roosevelt Yes, but! also: awful minds talk about ideas as well. Really annoying ones do it too, all the time. Personally, I’m an event kind of mind. If that makes me average, fine. The ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt can read a litany of my sins when I die. Ideas are great! But there are so...

choire replied to your photo: So I guess a Boulder Awl meet-up is not in order,… Jesus, digging down much? After I read that thing about gawker, I got curious! At least three of those 102 uniques are people I have sent links to about Four Loko at two in the morning.
retrotort replied to your photo: I’ve been drinking sangria since 3pm because Joel… recipe post would be greatly appreciated This will serve about 6 or 7 or something. Also, I improvise when I cook so this isn’t very precise: one whole chicken* one bar of 100% dark chocolate (about 4oz.) half an onion (not red) 5-6 serrano peppers 4 cloves garlic 1 jalapeno 2 or 3 limes ...
