Reborn Hockey Fan

A funny thing happened this week. People everywhere started talking about hockey. The guys in my office were sending each other video clips. Ira, the doorman at my sister’s apartment, eyes lit as he asked me if I saw the highlights. You couldn’t miss them. Hockey was ESPN’s lead story on Sportscenter a few times [...]

Bedouin Soundclash

Rosen left a comment about music to my post on reading the other day. Althogh Marcus did work hard to earn the nickname KOBC (king of bad calls) in college his taste for music was always spot on. So I dug up Bedouin Soundclash on the wacky web, listened to the band and as I [...]

I do not want to get a haircut in 2007. I think about this very often. On a slow day I probably think about not cutting my hair at least 10 times. I realize this is stupid and wish I would think about world peace or self-enlightenment or get-rich-quick schemes instead. I don’t have a [...]

My Aunt Gail is a laughter coach by trade. She teaches laughter classes in her neighborhood in Harrisburg, PA. Aunt Gail believes in the physical act of laughter. She wants people to laugh, even without the aid of jokes or humor. When people begin to do this the simulated laughter becomes stimulated laughter. I’ve dubbed [...]

Reading is FUN

After going through a bunch of lame books I’m now on a hot streak. I recently read Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. I loved it. It’s a book that is written for my generation. It also happens to be a pretty glamorous movie, but the flick is nothing compared to the novel. You can get [...]

Gilbert Arenas Uncensored

My buddy Jon is the best at sending out dopey links to annoying content that isn’t worth the time it takes to view it. Most of the stuff is truly horrible, but you almost have to click on the link just to see how bad it really is. Here is a perfect example. You see, [...]

2008 — The Year I Will Finally Vote….maybe

I’ve never voted. I’m not really proud of this but I’m not really bothered by it either. Chalk it up to apathy, thats the term people use to explain why more than half the country passes up on their right to vote. My parents and people of their generation seem to be appalled when I [...]

Listening to Music on the Internet

Like most New York City worker bees I have an intimate relationship with my iPod. It helps me zone out when I am on the train or the subway. I will also turn it on at my desk when I need to hunker down and finish a task — usually Jack Johnson, Chili Peppers or [...]

Rail Jam in NYC

I was still at work around 8pm on Thursday night when my old crew from CSTV started texting me to meet up with them in Union Square. It’s always good to catch up with them plus they usually know about gangster style advertising sales parties. So I made the ten block trek down to Union [...]
