The fake Gallagher tweet stream is pretty great. Perfect encapsulation of his brand of shitty tea party comedy.
Old Men, Bitter and Otherwise
This morning, I listened to the episode of the WTF podcast with Gallagher. I’d skipped until now it because, really, who gives a fuck about that guy, but I ran out of episodes on my iPhone and figured fuck it. And wow. I’m super late to this game because there was a bit of an internet hub-bub about the episode (145, from about a month ago), since Gallagher walked out...

“America’s leading corporations have found a way to thrive even if the American economy doesn’t recover. This is very, very bad news.” Excellent and enraging.

New documentary by the director of Helvetica and Objectified. Interesting side-note: do you remember that video of the father and son team who sent the weather balloon with the HD camera and iPhone up into space? The dad is the cinematographer to all three of these docs.

My newest 8tracks mix. Stuff it in your goddamn earholes. There’s no theme other than “Mikey likes it,” but I do manage to kick things off righteously, if I do say so myself, with my all-time favorite song about roller skating. Roll again, Bobby Fever!

I return to this op-ed from time to time, when I want to be reminded of both the power of clear thinking and truly wonderful writing. It’s by Simon Schama, a very prolific art historian who is also a bit of a polymath. It was written in 2002 in the lead up to the Iraq War and to call it prescient would be an understatement. It is positively clairvoyant. What makes it so powerful is that it...

So my brother called me the other day. He was looking for something romantic to do with his fiancé for Valentine’s Day. I had just the thing. I had been to one of America’s masterpieces a few years ago, and it was only an hour and a half from his home in Charlottesville, VA. No, I’m not talking about the Natural Bridge. No, I said to him, what you want to do is find something...
Ukeleles. They have their place. That place is apparently 90% of YouTube.
If I had Thor’s Hammer, I’m pretty sure that the only use I would find for it would be to continually and repeatedly pound myself in the head. IDIOT! <BONK!> IDIOT! <THONK!> IDIOT! <THUD!> IDIOT! <CRUNCH!> It’s gonna be another long-ass night. Goddammit.
