Re: Twitter!

I have this feeling you occupy a space that a certain type of person has been waiting for decades to encounter as confirmation of the slippery anti life slope we are on. I've spent a loooooong time wishing we lived in the fantasy worlds of my enemies. My midmorning feed is now full of (a) moms and ...

Re: Inequality

There's ... something I'm trying to articulate here and I can't quite get it - about front row/back row. I don't like the framing but there is a cultural issue in the neighborhood. It kind of has to do with who gets to sneer at whom and where. So, let's make the whole front row / back row environme...

Re: Video Games!

Yeah, I looked to another source for my inspiration. A different king, and his band of knights, and their strategy when things got a little too rough in their quest for The Holy Grail.

I think KC:D has found the perfect balance between stats, player skill, and story telling. Extremely well-done game from a KS funded studio. Ok, so, I got this game and ... is there a part where you actually play a game? No exaggeration it's been 70% or more cut scenes and dialogue with mini games ...

My spice cabinet Chicken dinner. You could get very wealthy by local-time standards bringing $50 worth of 20 cheap-ass supermarket spices back with you. There's that historical rumor that Roman legionaries were sometimes paid in salt, so a $50 sack of salt would probably make you pretty damn rich. ...

Yeah, ditto.

I'm guessing below Arlo Guthrie is Tab Benoit, a really good delta-blues guitarist. If you're local and like the blues, he'd be worth seeing.

I'm trying to convince my wife to go to his show in Hartford on Aug. 7.
