Lost: The Time-Loop Theory →
Not sure if this is true but… Reading this blew my mind a little. Don’t read it if you don’t want your brain to get all tossed around like flight 815.

A really simple, easy-to-use interface aggregating TV news clips from major sources. I stopped watching live news because really, the internet will tell me everything I need to know, and my TV is now a clunky box I use to watch PBS docs (ok, and Bret Michaels on a really bad day). But this is a good way to get back into broadcast, if you feel so inclined.
Accidentally deleted my Apes and Androids audio post because I thought I was rehosting a song that originally appeared on my friend’s site. Turns out those boys have a different A&A song, “Creepy Girls” up and the whole thing was a wires-crossing deal and I can’t give you the song again for today (how do you retrieve deleted posts…anyone?) In any case, Apes and...
OH MY GOD THIS IS THE CUTEST VIDEO EVER MADE IN...
(via doree): It involves a lion. A real lion! If you don’t think this is the cutest video ever made in the history of the world then you have no heart. i’d have to agree. i don’t usually fall for animals-in-online-videos, but this is just…

(via antiocharonow) Seriously, Luc Sante’s blog gives you hope that people sometimes hit the internet ready to rumble, writing chops wise.

you turn on the tv to the exact scene in friends where ross cannot get his leather pants back on and the lotion and powder have combined to make a paste. really doesn’t get better.

What my mother thinks of my life in NYC (or a...
Me: It wasn't the BEST day.
Mom: You know there aren't any bad days..it is always good to wake up each morning and see the sun....WORK SUCKS!!!!!!
Me: yeah i mean everything is so up in the air right now.
Mom: It is just your microcosm..look beyond. Be the eagle that soars over your life. Namaste. (ed note: I have to assume sarcasm here)
Me: Well right now i feel a little hedged in by my own microcosm
Mom: Well it is fiction or illusion..I live in NM and I see your world totally differently. Do what makes you excited to get up in the morning.
Me: so how do you see my world?
Mom: I see that people in NYC believe that they are in the epicenter. But I think that all of the US is deluded. The energy in the world lies in Asia. (ed note: mom just went to china and is obsessed with asia now).
Me: youre probably right about that
Me: were all just little rats running on our own wheels
Mom: It is odd that you use that analogy...I wrote that I see New Yorkers somewhat like hamsters on a wheel but I decided it was harsh and I deleted it.
Me: its not harsh unfortunately
Mom: Life is short. You need to breath and enjoy the world . You need to value the positive contributions of man (arts and letters) and help the suffering. You need to be able to live and support yourself but that is about it. Deadlines and stress and etc are unimportant unless they work toward something of value.
AND SCENE. (and btw...arts and letters? i love my mother.)

Apparently, people are hiring professional photographers (along the lines of Todd Eberle) to shoot their homes (ala high end shelter magazines) for hanging on the walls or binding in self-indulgent coffee table books. I smell a trend piece! My faves is Ms. Julia Butler who says, “Much in the way you might have portraits of your children taken, we wanted the same quality in a photograph of our...

Beat the Devil →
Ok, so here’s a band that you ought to be listening to in 2008. Their frontwoman, Shilpa Ray, is intense and scary and rad and pretty much a spirituals singer. You know, in the church sense. Start with Plea Bargain.
Cotillion Blues →
Our boys recorded their new (old) song for rcrdlbl and it is available here. This was the song that made me really fall in love with White Rabbits. It sounds like being whiskey drunk in a saloon with all your friends. They are one of the only modern bands I know that play with such precise abandon.
Stuff White People Like
There are a few websites that friends direct me to and I wonder how I lived without them for so long. This is one such site.
Sort of want one of these today. →
