High School Me
I’ve posted my mullet several times.
I’ve given up on tumblr until I get three stars on every screen of Angry Birds. Don’t act so surprised.

His entire life, it seems, is a tribute to his resolve and respect for his chosen profession.

Look, I’m trying to avoid sounding like I want to make sweet love to Steve Jobs, but I think that a lot of this antenna thing has gotten really turned around and that people are taking a sort of glass houses attitude and going after Apple. Is it really a big problem? The numbers seem to indicate that, from a customer perspective, it’s not. I personally haven’t dropped a single...

stevewhitaker: not the problem itself. (I’m done. I’ll shut up now. I’m disappointed so far.) I agree that it’s a reaction to the press, but this issue is very much about the press.

Obviously those numbers are somewhat deflated to make their point, but the bottom...
Crap, my bad. Shira Lazar is in Los Angeles. I had taken that screenshot early today and didn’t post it because I wanted to make sure that she wasn’t in L.A. instead of New York. Then I went ahead and posted it anyway. The newsroom threw me off. I see a newsroom and, unless it’s Wolf Blitzer, I think of New York. And that expression? Yes, it happens plenty in NYC. It’s not...
I have only blocked one person on Twitter/Tumblr
squibble: And his name rhymes with MESSDOGG. It was the Polaroid of my scrotum, wasn’t it?
Derek Powazek’s one-strike rule for Twitter →
guillee: If you @reply to me on Twitter and it’s a stupid joke, or a dumb retort, or something you could have just asked Google, there’s an extremely good chance that you’ll do it again. And why sign up for a service that annoys me every time I look at it? And if my choice is between knocking you down in front of everyone […], or simply removing myself from your attention, I think it’s more...

Summer Cold Makes Me Feel the Opposite of Fine
I was hopeful yesterday that my sneezing and runny nose were just allergies. No dice. So I’m home today actually wishing I was at work. That’s how I know I’m sick. We don’t have orange juice but for some reason my wife picked up grapefruit juice for the first time this year. I like grapefruit juice. But, see, my tastebuds and throat are all wack so the juice tastes like...
It was brought to my attention that the Ziploc bag full of quarters I found yesterday appears to have some leftover “oregano” in the bottom of it. I would like to confirm for you whether it truly is an herbal substance or it is, in fact, just a reflection from the flash. However, I’m so fucking high right now.
"A Reader's Manifesto" by B.R. Myers →
I just shared this link with swamibooba but thought others might find it interesting, too. As strange as it sounds whenever I read it back to myself, I have a great respect for the art of criticism. Pauline Kael, Lester Bangs, Anthony Lane — they are writers whose particular gift is for social observation through the lens of what others have created. They are passionate about what they create...
