12th Street Tacos

Despite formal classroom training, Dora the Explorer and Telemundo Futbol, I’m severely deficient in my ability to effectively communicate in Spanish. Yet my gastronomic penchant for Mexican cuisine continues to be more sophisticated. Luckily, I do not reside in Mexico or I would most certainly be gordo estupido. But I do live on 12th street, [...]

Season 22: The Johnnies Road To The Final Four Begins

Tonight marks my 22nd seasons as a St. John’s fan. I fell hard for the team as an 8-year-old kid in 1989. That season the Johnnies point guard Greg “Boo” Harvey hit a bunch of game-winning last second shots. Jayson Williams and Malik Sealy were the other stars on the team. My local newspaper, Newsday, [...]

LittyHoops Cookbook: The 5 Hour Acai-E Popsicle

A few months back I made an executive culinary decision to invest in a Zoku Quick Pop Maker. This marvelous technological device freezes popsicles in just seven to nine minutes. It’s positively scientific to watch a liquid concoction instantly freeze before thy own very eyes. Not one to lick my own popsicle, I’m somewhat known [...]

The Pro Sweet 16…Will Be Both Televised & Pretty Dope

You may or may not care that the NBA is in the midst of a work stoppage that might wipe out the entire 2011-2012 season. Bill Simmons cares. He recently went all sports guy on us by explaining how the president guy in the movie Dave would be able to solve this lockout. I would [...]

Education Needs To Learn Something New

I’ve been hung up lately on the idea that college, especially private schools, are a financial rip-off. I am having trouble understanding the actual direct value of a $125K (and increasing) undergraduate degree. Even if there are real benefits, I haven’t met many students that realize them. I’m not a big fan of traditional, structured [...]

College C.R.E.A.M. Get The Money.

After my last blog post, it should come as no surprise that I’m about to share an idea that’s bouncing around in my head. It’s happened before on this blog as I’ve pontificated a gambling website to bet on anything and a twitter-based fantasy sports game (for which we actually built a prototype). One of [...]

Ideas About Ideas

If you have a good idea, share it. Connect with every smart person that you know and bounce it off of them. You will learn pretty quickly if your opportunity has real merit. You might even get some help, advice and inspiration from others. Nothing gets me more than having someone tell me that his [...]

Israel News From The Source

I closely follow the current events in Israel. A lot happened last week. I wasn’t sure what to make of these new developments. More concerning to me, I wasn’t sure where to turn to help make sense of it all. So I tried something a bit different. I blocked out all the bloviaters, bloggers and [...]

Demand Media – Digital IPO

You may have noticed Demand Media popped off with an IPO in late January. Demand Media consists of a bunch of nondescript digital properties including eHow, Livestrong, Cracked and Answerbag. They also offer other digital tools such as social media solutions for partner websites, content channels (ex. Youtube Channel) and eNom domain registry service. Here [...]

The Inspiring Silver Project

Last Tuesday afternoon my friend Stacey sent out an email to all of her friends introducing the Silver Project. Stacey created a holiday gift, a very cool calendar (.pdf file), to raise money for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation. It’s a charity for which she has a strong personal connection. Stacey did this [...]
