bike locks cost $100?!! I don't have one yet, as my parents garage in their sleepy suburb doesn't need one. eeeeeeep! Is there like a Bikes For Dummies book I can buy that includes exciting chapters on "Basic Not-Getting-Stolen" and "Traffic Rules" and shit? I don't have a bike mentor that is patien...

I just got a new bike too, but it's living at my parents until I do some things to fulfill my "no new toys until [Thing I've been Procrastinating] is complete" rule. Sometimes I have to bribe myself. However, I am new to city bike riding. I am terrified it will get stolen, or that I'll bike somewher...

nice! took me a minute to realize you could read words on them. I was all "that 7 is backwards. And what is an "h" card? Should I tell him he has a permanent typo? Nah...." haha.

I love it when you crave ice cream and there, magically in your fridge, is a whole half carton of perfect chocolate ice cream. And it's not melty OR hard to scoop out. And it tastes like angels. I am going to eat two bowls.

I guess part of the reason I don't run to dissect every paragraph is I also don't want to be the male/internet version of the groupies eyeing each other at the merch table ... I'm just catching up with all of these entries, and with the articles themselves. It's funny how that description of female...

1.) Duh. It's undefinable. That why it's such a great pejorative term. 2.) These kids today, with their Pabst and footless tights and fake eyeglasses, what is the world coming to?! Though, I think the article kind of has a point though. The internet has certainly made shows easier to know about/get ...

Hipsters: The End of Western Civilization

Pretty decent AdBusters article: http://www.adbusters.org/magazine/79/hipster.html "An artificial appropriation of different styles from different eras, the hipster represents the end of Western civilization – a culture lost in the superficiality of its past and unable to create any new meaning. Not...

This is sort of a semi-irrelevent comment, but the idea of an artist trying to play to the tastes of an audience and failing (I have no idea and don't care if it's true or not for CC) reminded me of a great David Bowie quote: "If I'm going to do something that could be provocative or artistically re...

OK, I have an otter story. Once at the baltimore aquarium, we got to the otter tank just as it was closing, but the aquarium workers let us in just for a minute. We walk in, and I swear the otters were up on the rocks together, eating dinner and laying around, barely moving. The minute they saw us, ...

Occasionally I branch out from my twigs into Raisin Bran....but seriously, have you tried raisin bran lately? WAAAAAAAAAY too many raisins. It's pretty much eating a spoonful of sugared raisins with a few bran flakes thrown in for color. Pretty soon they'll take a cue from Oops All Berries!, and mak...

Ya, FB is by far the most useful and least annoying of the social networking sites, a fact that...well, bothers me for nonsense reasons, as it's so good I quickly gave up all other networks and became centralized (if FB goes, or decides to hate me, what will I do?!).

I can't believe that old salt was 71! I guess he'll always be, like 50, in my mind. I used to watch him with my dad, a secret from my mom, who would never let a kid watch that filth. But my dad and I knew he was really smart and really funny. And filthy. It was awesome. Thanks for the kodak moment, ...

That is a completely unreasonable thing to say. I respectfully disagree. I know it's your friend, but complaining because someone took a good idea and made it better is ridiculous. After all, Guitar Hero just copied Dance Dance Revolution. So Rock Band improved upon the formula started by a game wh...

Haha, well see, I don't know anything about video games. Especially sports based ones. I just have a friend who programs for Guitar Hero and he sees it differently. But really, they were first, so the size of thier marketing budget doesn't matter as it isn't being used to sell a copycat, you know? I...
