March Madness On Demand Or On De Fritz?

I’ve been paying close attention to the television negotiations for the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. You may have heard that the NCAA is playing around with the idea of expanding March Madness to 96 teams. You may have also asked yourself why mess with the perfection that is the current tournament. Many, including myself, think [...]

Galitzianer Trash

I’m a Litvack. It says so on my birth certificate and my driver’s license. If I lived in California, it would say so on my medical marijuana certificate. I’ve always been proud of my last name. It’s unique, easy to say, and easier to mumble. Best of all, it spawned off a catchy nickname that [...]

The Local Digital Marketing Conundrum/Opportunity

One of the most interesting business opportunities on the L-Hoops radar is the ability for small businesses to leverage digital to locally market to their customers. Put more plainly, how can the pizza place, neighborhood bar, barber shop, arcade, bowling alley or Japanese massage parlor use the web as a marketing tool to drive new [...]

Mosquitoes really BITE

As the only stinger in my near perfect Costa Rican vacation, I’ve decided to declare a holy war against Mosquitoes. In the Littyhoops circle of life, these blood suckers are my square peg. If I ever get my one-on-one, Sunday Night conversation with Hashem, I’ll be sure to grill him on the creation of these [...]

My Apartment: To Stay Or Not To Stay?

My apartment lease is up on at the end of this month. I was supposed to tell my landlord if I planned to stay a few weeks ago. I’m not sure what I want to do, and haven’t had the time or energy to look around, so instead I’ve stalled longer than Steve Traschsel in [...]

Wearing Your Music On My Sleeve

You may have noticed that I often sport a guitar string bracelet or two on my right wrist. I don’t wear a watch (aversion to time) so the bracelet sticks out and people often ask me about it. I’ll usually explain (unless I make up a ridiculous 9x exaggerated story) that the bracelet is made [...]

The Montauk Monster is B-A-N-A-N-A-S

Like most other independently wealthy struggling and chubby entrepreneurs I summer on the east end. But last weekend I found myself in Fire Island. Despite Miss Matt’s insightful and potentially life-altering psychoanalysis, there was only one reason I took the fairy to FI. I wanted to get as far away from the Montauk Monster as [...]

Recipe of the Week: Big Sexy Pops

I enjoy using this blog as a forum to facilitate conversations with friends and anybody else who ventures on over to YBIML. Topics are often diverse and varied depending on what is on my mind or what I think you might want to read about. I thought it might be interesting to share one of [...]

It’s Time For A Shvitz

My friend Kras hit me up this past Saturday morning to hang out. Until then, my plan was to stay in bed as long as possible to try and sleep off a great night of celebrating the Weilgus engagement that somehow ended with a little too much late night Pop Burger. Kras first proposed golf [...]

A Thursday Night — Dodgeball and Mos Def

My Thursday Night I bounced out of work early tonight and headed uptown for some dodgeball playoff action. My team, Dodgeball 2.0, consists of NextNY entrepreneurs and we’ve been enjoying a decent amount of success in our second season. While I’m not in love with dodgeball leagues (awkwardly intense) I’ve enjoyed playing on this team. [...]
