A new Sloan album is on its way! →
Hooray! May 10th.
Hulu - Portlandia →
OK so, nobody gets the Independent Film Channel. But it’s not that hard to find episodes of Portlandia online if you’re trying. And if you’re not watching it, you’re really missing out. If you want to go the easy route, the Hulu link above has clips from the show. Hilarious.

Drink-A-Long with The Warriors movie (1979) |... →
If I drank this would be pretty awesome. “Here are the rules for The Warriors drink-a-long: Make friends with your neighbor, and make sure they’re not cheating. Every time a new gang comes on the scene: Drink. Every time Cyrus says, “Can you dig it!”: Hi-five the person next to you. Every time they (barely) make the subway: Cheer and cheers the person next to you. Every time the...
Pomplamoose Calls the Tune →
I generally preemptively write off any musical duo made up of romantic partners (gag), but Pomplamoose have such a unique sound and are doing such interesting things with their careers as a band that I think they’re worthy of some attention. From this week’s cover story in the SF Weekly. Thanks again for JDK for turning me on to them.

I found this totally fascinating! I also want to know if the partners of the subjects identified as “women who are in steady relationships with men who are not very sexually attractive” were aware of their role in the study. Ouch.

Do you ever read the Craigslist personal ads just for entertainment? My favorite is Missed Connections, but this one is proof that pretty much all the sections are devoid of any even somewhat normal content. Fun reading though.
Maverick's big wave surfing contest likely a no go →
“The official window of time for the contest to occur is closing on Feb. 28, and the event’s wave forecasters said the right combination of swell, wind and weather most likely would not come together before then.”
Money Won’t Buy You Health Insurance - NYTimes.com →
This is a terrifying commentary on the state of our health insurance system. I remember when I graduated from law school and was denied individual insurance by Blue Cross because I take a common, inexpensive medication taken by millions of Americans for a condition that does not have the potential to become life-threatening or expensive to treat. Thankfully, I started my job soon after and got...
Olive Garden introduces "Artisanal Ravioli" →
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN PEOPLE PLEASE STOP ADDING THE WORD “ARTISANAL” to everything??? It doesn’t mean anything. No effing “artisan” sat there and carefully crafted each ravioli that Olive Garden is serving, and even if they did, it would not MAKE THE FOOD TASTE BETTER, which is the *point* of food. SIGH.

Japan suspends annual whale hunt - CNN.com →
Sea Shepherd is getting some great results, forcing Japan to start joining the rest of the goddamn world in the 21st century. If you’re as pleased about this as I am, consider sending them a donation to help fund their efforts.
Amusing random start-up generator.
Who Is Arcade Fire??!!? →
Hard to believe that anyone hasn’t heard of the Arcade Fire, but these post-Grammy snippets are pretty hilarious… i.e. an actual Twitter post: “It’s a weird world we live in when someone called Arcade Fire can win a Grammy n Justin Bieber doesn’t!”
