Riding my bike to work is fun, even if it is like 91 deg at 8am. I am not quite sure what to make of these callouses on my chode, however.

HOLY CRAP I KNOW THAT GUY
So I’m sitting there reading the archives of Design*Sponge, a blog about nesting and interior design and stationary and silly little things to buy for your home, when the visage of an old friend pops on my screen. Holy shit, it’s Arun! I know Arun as a singer for a punk band, as a brilliant filmmaker, and as one of the smartest, funniest, most politically astute people I’ve...

Nice. This is the kind of change the Republicans believe in. “Political appointees at the Department of Labor are moving with unusual speed to push through in the final months of the Bush administration a rule making it tougher to regulate workers’ on-the-job exposure to chemicals and toxins. “The agency did not disclose the proposal, as required, in public notices of...

Some exclusive video from Gizmodo inside the Lego factory. Follow some ABS plastic granulate as it is sucked through massive pipes, heated, injected into molds, sent to massive storage facilities by robots, retrieved based on current production, decorated as needed, grouped, weighed, shrink-wrapped, boxed, sealed, and packed into shipping boxes. This is the latest in a set of videos taken by...

Hospitals run on emergency generators The airport shuts down Photos courtesy of QC...
ATL is the Abu Ghraib of layover delays. No naked pyramids yet, but I’m pretty sure I’m being metaphorically waterboarded.

The moon is made of meat, my son, the moon is made of meat. And all the meat from which it’s made, has come from gooses feet. (via someone somewhere)
Just posted a new mux with some songs I’ve been digging this week. It’s mostly new stuff, as there seems to be a ton of great music hitting right now. I’ve got piping hot new songs from some old faves (Walkmen, Notwist), some blog grabs (Miles Robinson, Shannon McArdle), some oldies-but-goodies (Dirty Looks, Joan Jett), a great song from a great band that has yet to take off here...

Las Vegas new tagline: “It’s like Disneyland, but with hookers.”
Las Vegas new tag 2: What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Except for the herpes, they follow you home. Also the AIDS. Definitely the AIDS.
Mags is in Venice. I’m at The Venetian. They’re pretty much the same, except there they sell glass and here they sell ass.
last night, i had a dream that my wife and i had a dog named “food.” this is what happens when you fall asleep to iron chef.
It was a little delight to see Finnish music pop up on my internets last night: 17 dots: Stupido Shop is, to my mind, the best record shop in Helsinki. Having been to approximately two record shops in Helsinki, I can authoritatively state that anna is correct. I’ve got family in Finland and so I’ve been over there a few times, and always manage to find some time to wander the...
Beautiful Losers →
Check out the trailer for this quite-probably-awesome documentary about the breakout emergence in the early 90s of a bunch of street-influenced artists (e.g. skate/hip-hop/punk/graffiti), including Shepard Fairey, Harmony Korine, Mike Mills, Geoff McFetridge, Ed Templeton, Margaret Kilgallen, and others I’m less familiar with. Yayboy!
