Today is the day I made Wired magazine. Or Maryn McKenna’s Superbug blog, anyway. Shit just got real.
Night Flannel - She’s so lonely My buddy Mitch, making good things.
So many hats, and not a one Aretha. So sad.

No way, sister. I’m Lord Stilton Falkor-Wiggum of Longview. My formula is: Lord/Lady DeliciousTypeOfCheese...
I just did a radio interview. WREC-AM in Memphis. 5 AM. Good times. I was thrown a curve ball question when the host asked about food safety in power outages, since they’ve had a devastating spate of tornadoes. I gave some advice, and then pointed listeners to a website. During a power outage. Yep, just your friendly neighborhood “expert” right here.

Toss a little cash to John Hughes family you cheap fucks. I can’t imagine how big of a fucking scrotebag you have to be to watch a whole movie broken up into a dozen chunks like this. Kids these days,...

I feel like I’m swimming in a piranha-filled lake in a thunderstorm. I know I’m done for, just not which will get me first. I need to go listen to some Rites of Spring and get the fuck over myself.
Limited press outreach is beginning today on a report I’m lead author on, embargoed until Thursday. These are going to be a long four days. Nervous is not even in the world of words I’m feeling right now. My head is swimming in panic. I’m not an anxious guy, but a Zoloft milkshake topped with whipped cream and crumbled up bits of Xanax, Valium, and Cymbalta sounds like a...
Adam Winnik’s animation to Carl Sagan reading an excerpt from Pale Blue Dot (via). My favorite rendition of Sagan’s own words is probably this video. Other valiant attempts include this one and this one and this one. There are oodles more. It’s like a cottage industry, making these, but some are better than others.
What did I miss?
We left for Minneapolis Thursday afternoon. While there, we hit two beautiful art museums, a great children’s museum, a huge zoo, an outdoor sculpture park, an amazing kids book store, a decent brewpub, a fantastic pizza place where they make their own mozzarella, a wine bar and cafe with a separate kids play room, and on top of that, I had waffles every fucking day (even though they kindof...
FUREVER - A documentary film by Amy Finkel Reminds me a little bit of Errol Morris’s amazing pet cemetery documentary Gates of Heaven.

Sadville, population me.
kittykittybangbang: I got some great stuff during Record Store Day. Went to listen to them today and it looks like the needle on my turntable broke during our move a few months ago. I’m looking online for a replacement needle for my 18 year old player. It is not going well. I got some goodies, too, but my situation is even sadder: my turntable is in a box in the basement. Been working on...
“Ten-Twenty-Ten” by Generationals Hot damn, this is good. Saw these affable chaps play a pizza parlor a couple of years back, and I liked the live show quite a bit more than their first record, but I think their new one is going to be worth a solid listen. Again, I say, hot damn. Plus: hand claps. [via]
Too many beers. A good night guarantees a bad morn’.

kittykittybangbang: Books I loved as a kid →
kittykittybangbang: Started by wellofcromulence, I’m focusing on books from 8-12 or so since they’re the ones I remember most fondly. [more] The book that immediately sprang to mind was Rambo III, the novelization of the movie: I am not even kidding when I say I read the shit out of this book. I don’t know how I came to get it, or why. I think it was because I wasn’t allowed...
