Dear LeBron James, Jul 8, 10, 2:24 p.m.
I don't care what team you're going to play for. Your choice of team still won't make me watch your boring sport.
Beards Apr 3, 08, 10:45 a.m.
I went to see some bands last week and the bar was full of these young dudes with BURLY ass beards. Not some scruff, or 5 oclock shadow, but thick, haggard beards.
I guess I missed that memo.
Is there a hipster scenester association with beards now? Sort of a tougher emo?
James Blake Dec 27, 10, 6:47 p.m.
So I nabbed the James Blake album from one of the last FMT's. I'd never heard of him before and there seemed to be a lot of hype around this new release.
At first listen, I thought "what the fuck is this?" I actually didn't like it - I think. I listened again, and it started to hit me differently. Now on third listen on a proper surround system, it's excellent.
I think it mixes minimal style with maximum complexity, which I think adds up to contrast. And contrast really tickles my pickle.
So for the JB fans, how does this release stack up to his other stuff?

You're name was mentioned in a book I'm reading. I never realized your name was an actual word. But I'm not known for my vocabulary. haha

I Meet Beck Tomorrow Oct 9, 08, 8:48 a.m.
My friend won a radio contest and the prize is we get to go backstage and shoot an interview with Beck before he goes on! Then we get to film the first few songs of his set!
I've been a fan of Beck for a loooong time, and this is fucking awesome!
*Oh it's a cross promo contest with FLIP video cameras, hence the filming stuff. Then our footage will be used in a "Beckumentary" or some shit. AHHHHHHHHH! Fuck yeah!
Wes Anderson movie posters Mar 24, 10, 6:14 p.m.
Saw these on Flavorpill yesterday. I like the simplicity of the posters, but not sure they are a good fit for someone like Wes Anderson who already has such a strong look to all of his films. Thoughts?
Besides The Pogues Mar 13, 11, 5:55 p.m.
I've been asked to prepare an "Irish Playlist" for a St Patrick's Day party I'm attending. Can any of you recommend any gems that would wow the semi-critical casual music fans?
I love the Pogues btw, but it seems too obvious. Thanks!
Thanks Lisa Feb 8, 11, 6:23 p.m.
My wife and I ordered photobooks of our wedding pictures through iPhoto, and Apple accidentally sent one of our books to this lady Lisa in Utah (We're in Jersey). There's apparently no FedEx ground service where Lisa lives so Apple told her to "dispose of it".
Instead, she sent the photobook to us with a nice note inside and we got an extra book - no charge!
It's nice to see that there are some people in this country who are still willing to do a little work to do something nice for a complete stranger.
Frankenstorm Oct 25, 12, 11:07 a.m.
The storm is a combination of Hurricane Sandy, now in the Caribbean, an early winter storm in the West, and a blast of arctic air from the North. They're predicted to collide and park over the country's most populous coastal corridor and reach as far inland as Ohio.
"It's almost a weeklong, five-day, six-day event," Cisco said Thursday from NOAA's northern storm forecast center in College Park, Md. "It's going to be a widespread serious storm."
Nice knowing ya!

Healthy Confrontations Jun 9, 11, 6:19 a.m.
My friend and I have recently started talking about how most people tend to avoid a non-violent confrontation. They'd rather swallow their pride and not say anything about what's going on, than risk a non-violent verbal callout. So..this is an email I get this morning from my friend.

Exxon Gas Station, Radburn
Gas. I need gas before making the commute to work. I pull into the local Exxon gas station, but the majority of the pumps are blocked off, so I’m forced to pull up in an awkward way, directly facing another car, a mini BMW. A woman in her late twenties is sitting in her car, gassing up, perhaps starting to sweat like myself. The type of fierce, nasty look she shoots me, you'd think I just killed her unborn children.
The audacity I had to gas up in such a way that now forces her to put her car in reverse as opposed to drive is obviously a huge fuckin’ offense. SO...
Like a gentleman I lift my sunglasses up so she can see my sincere, civil face. Through face gestures and hand language I tell her, in a really nice, jesting way, to calm down (hands facing palm down, motioning downward), it’s early in the morning (point to the imaginary watch on my wrist), and then wipe my forehead (the impending heat). Finally, I point to the blocked off gas pumps. That’s it. With a humbling embarrassment she looks away...end of exchange?
There’s a knock on my window.
6:57 a.m., 87 degrees
A man in his late forties/fifties is tapping on my window. He’s a big dude, a bit pudgy; his tight jeans, work-boots, and Chuck Lidell Affliction t-shirt tell me so.
SD lowers his window.
We’ll call him “Affliction”. I’ll be “SD”
Affliction – Bro., what did you say to that girl?
SD – Why?
*They’re far too many ‘bros. and ‘dudes to type into his dialogue, so I’ll leave the majority of them out.
Affliction – Dude, why were you yelling at the girl, bro.?
SD – I wasn’t yelling. I didn’t say a word. All I did was motion for her to calm down, relax. It’s early in the morning, it’s a scorcher (I didn’t say that), and to just generally relax, the majority of the pumps are closed off, and I had to grab this one.
Affliction – Bro., you shouldn’t talk to girls that way.
SD – I appreciate you confronting me on it, but that’s what I was doing to her in a friendly way, you know life is good, relax, I’m getting gas just like her.
Affliction – Bro., dude, that’s not right.
SD – Alright man.
Affliction wasn’t happy with our intelligent exchange, so he proceeded to stand by my car in protest. Uncomfortable, yes. Finally...
SD – What do you want to do? Beat the shit out of each other in a gas station parking lot because I have to get gas.
Affliction – Bro., whatever you want to do.
*At this time, in my head, I said, “Fuck this motherfucker.”
SD – You’ve been taking some MMA classes haven’t you?
Affliction is now stunned by my observation (blatant, duh), psychological profile. Already, he’s defeated.
SD – Maybe I’ve been taking some classes too. Maybe I’ve been training for twenty years. Maybe I’m even a teacher, so maybe we can beat each other down at 7 in the morning. Maybe I have my Kali fighting sticks in my car too. Let it go.
Affliction mumbled some bros., and dudes, turned around, and got back in his very shiny Mercedez Benz.
$50 worth of gas to fill my tank. Don’t we control the oil fields in Iraq, isn’t that why we went there in the first place?
I never liked Chuck Lidell, and Affliction t-shirts are just shirts, not a BJJ, Muay Thai, UFC superman cape giving you professional fighting skills. ‘Get back in your car, bitch. I have to go teach 9 & 10 year olds. As I pulled out, I waved to the girl, she waved back, and apologized.
(healthy) Confrontation – 2
Apathy – 0
Gentlemen, stay cool, and have a great day.

How would you hang this? Aug 9, 10, 11:49 a.m.
All carpenter handy types....
I'm trying to figure the best way to attach this roll of bamboo fencing
To this existing fence frame that I put up.
A handy neighbor suggested those BX staples? The bamboo sticks are about as wide as a pencil and fairly brittle.
Any ideas??? THX!
Big Moon Tonight Mar 19, 11, 4:21 p.m.
Full moons vary in size because of the oval shape of its orbit, with one end closer to Earth. Tonight, the moon will be 221,565 miles away — the closest to Earth since March 1993.
