(via librarianglasses) Just emailed this link to my mom. She’s going to love it.
The Goode Family
I just watched the first episode of the The Goode Family, which is made by Mike Judge and rips on overly-worrisome lefty-types. Its pretty funny! It seems like every review and mention of the show focuses on whether a “conservative” comedy can survive in the mainly left-of-center (or maybe better put, ultra politically correct) network TV world, but I think thats missing the point. ...
Something else that I forgot to mention about Up. Parts of it are pretty saccharine-y sweet, but there is a dark sense of humor that pops up in places that wouldn’t be out of place in Arrested Development or 30 Rock. For example, the following two (paraphrased) quotes: “I was living under your pouch because I love you” - The Dog “Now that you drove my friend away,...
I just saw Up, or as I’ll forever think of it, Grumpy Old Men 3, tonight with Logan and let me say this: it was a blast. Maybe my favorite Pixar movie yet. Its definitely better than Wall-e, and without giving anything away, I’ll just say that as great as the first act of Wall-e was (ie until EVA and the humans show up and turn the movie into an animated version of an Inconvenient...
Something to Say
Here are five pseudo-celebrities that are not commonly clumped together: Fall Front man Mark E. Smith Journalist Christopher Hitchens (yes, thats really him) Hip-hopper and Islands collaborator Busdriver Woody Allen Video game reviewer Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw What they have in common is that, to me at least, all give of the above people have public-images as being able to talk...

Release: UnTumbled 0.1 (Firefox Extension)
I was looking for new projects last night, so heres what I did. I fixed a tiny part of tumblr. I didn’t want the site constantly reminding me that I’m popularity of “8”, so I wrote a firefox extension that removes the “Tumblarity” portion of the site. It also adds a button the the status bar (the thing at the bottom of firefox) that allows you to toggle the...

Old Charlotte Story (LOST)
This story is crusty and stale by now, but its pretty good so I thought I should share it. A month or two back Patrick Ehlers from Sonic Weapon Fence wrote an a letter to the Lost Podcast where he asked, basically, how ashamed we should be in a Lost themed band. (The creators’ answer: only a little) At the same time (I think I have this part of the story right) there was some dispute...
Coming out of the bro-closet
This has been a long time comming, but I’m at this bar in Cambridge and I’m ready to say it now: When I’m meeting new people, my actions are basically indistinguishable from a frat boy’s. I am, situationally, a bro. This is my shameful secret.
I was just typing out Whoopi Goldberg’s name to update my OkCupid profile and started wondering: is she Jewish or something?
How I Know the Culture Wars are Over (Kids Win)
I caught this story about Miss California joining the coalition to protect fair lady marriage from the gays, and I breathed a sigh of relief. If the most prominent people left in this country who oppose gay marriage are Joe the Plumber and a failed beauty model, I think its safe to say gay marriage is coming to a town near you. As a side note, its worth remembering that Obama’s has the...
