This is sort of amusing, but not so great with concepts that are more abstract. It guessed that I was craving happiness, but I was actually thinking of something else.

The Long Winters :: View topic - guitar tabs →
Practicing my guitar this evening, I decided to see if I could find any Long Winters tabs online, and came across this great 12-page thread on the Long Winters discussion board where fans guess at the tabs and John Roderick drops in for commentary/corrections.

“My vision is always about marketing and media. I plan to create ‘collections’ once or twice a year - basically guides that show gents wearing pantyhose in a fashionable way -, print them and send to pantyhose manufacturers, fashion designers and newspapers to show them it’s OK to wear, and, on the other hand, to keep the issue covered in the media. I would also put...

My brilliant friend PH, despite taking the Bar Exam in 5 days, wrote a script to capture all of the iterations of Barack Obama is your new fixie (the your new bicycle hipster edition). Read them here. Barack Obama has pink skulls on his socks.

“More than ever, Roderick looks like someone you ask to leave somewhere. http://twitpic.com/4dd2” Man, I am inflamed with jealousy following Merlin Mann’s Twitter updates as he hangs out with John Roderick, who presumably arrived in SF today ahead of the Long Winters show tomorrow night (Merlin is the Long Winters’ neglectful webmaster).

The Dirty Truth About Plastic | DISCOVER Magazine →
I thought this article was a great layperson-oriented summary of the problem presented by the so-called endocrine-disrupting chemicals that are in certain plastics and pesticides and which have become ubiquitous on our planet, why so little has been done about it, and what the potential effects may be several decades from now. You people know I’m not one to be overly-paranoid about toxins...
