Now this is great. Seems there’s a crew of people down there in New York City called Improv Everywhere and thier latest “performance” was at The Mercury Lounge, a somewhat legendary rock club in NYC, and next to Katz’s Deli, which I stop at each time I’m there. What Improv Everywhere did was essentially give [...]

So there you have it. As efficiently and as workmanlike as you’ll ever see, the Red Sox dispatched the Cardinals last night with remarkable ease, and the entire New England region collectively exhaled. It is over. Of course, there was a never a curse to begin with – through these years there was only weakness [...]

I couldn’t have possible imagined a sweeter [...]

Quite a surreal evening last night. From the “Tivo’s don’t kill people, people kill people” department: last night I attended a dinner and therefore had to Tivo the Red Sox-Yankees game, which started at 5pm. It was a miracle in and of itself that I got through the dinner and back home without hearing the [...]

Here’s an amusing pattern of songs from the IPod the other day:
Nick Drake – “Place To Be”
The Price Is Right Theme Song
Pearl Jam – “Dissident”
How funny. I mean, how can you not laugh when you’re driving home from work in the car and you hear a Nick Drake song, then suddenly the Price Is Right [...]
