Soundtrack, alas

Alas, the L Dubs aren't on the soundtrack, but label-mates Mates of State are! And a little Stephen Trask (Hedwig et al.) never hurt anyone.

That's because the 9 no longer exists! There's just a 1 train.

For the record, I am so NY-centric that for the longest time, I thought that "Washington's on the 1" referred to a stop off the subway. Whoops. Stupid, stupid me.

Hey - how'd you sync them up for that final drive-by shot? Magic. Well, no. Playback, actually. Low-budget playback. Portable, battery-op stereo. In the car or by the drum set? On the side of the road, across from the drumset. And since we were so low-budget and were attempting to shoot sans walkie...

LA Awesomeness?

Hey, all you fellow Long Winters fans. Surely, you have exquisite musical and entertainment-y tastes. I'm a humble New Yorker, heading to LA for the rest of the week for a job and I was hoping someone out there would take pity on me and tell me where all the cool kids will be hanging out this week. ...

Is Gibbard ganking J-Rod's look?

I dunno, yo, but I've seen some photos of Senor Gibbard rocking that Tsunami relief show, and man oh man, he sure looks like someone else I know.

90s music

Oh, how I love the 90s, especially early 90s dance hits. Do those count? I'd like to add "To Be With You," by Mr. Big, because that song ought to be covered by EVERYONE.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Okay, my old wives' remedy is vile but it fucking works. I do a lot of voiceover work and I am insanely sinus infection-prone, and sinus-infections give me larynxgitis. I gargle with apple cider vinegar. It is horrid and makes me retch, so I sometimes cut it with water. But still, get that shiznit d...

ah, yes. 5ive ways. Surely 5ive ways. Although I always mentally say "5ive" as "F-ive."
There was some British Boy Band that was called 5ive that was big when I was living over there. Big in the boy band world, anyway. But Merlin's 5ives are much better.

Did you see? In the Wired with James Cameron on the cover? There's a blurb featuring a list of 5 ways that Sprint's customer service makes him feel dirty by this board's very own Merlin Mann?

color me impressed.
