I figured I'd up my indie street cred by giving this a listen over the next day or two at work. That may not be the best environment to listen to it, according to some of Wayne Coyne's comments, but, it's the best I can do under the circumstances.

I'm almost 1/6th of the way through, and you know what? It's actually kinda good - perfect stuff to just have on in the background.

After seeing this all over the internets, I finally watched it. Awesome.

Yes, the shaved ice place I'm at does fucking garbage can sizes of shaved ice, presumably for frat parties and such.

Price? $500-$800.

As a follow up, Bobby's pretty much right: when you start getting up into that largest tub size, you're getting a shit-ton of shaved ice. I'm not sure if it's exactly 10x more than the smallest size, but, I'm sure when you factor in to the time/labor/cost/ice/syrup requirements for filling that thing up, ~$800 is probably about right.

Expensive yes, but, I bet it's worth it!

So I'm doing this thing with 2 of my good friends. We're gonna play games, and talk about them while one's being played.

For now, we're starting with NES games, playing 20 minutes of each one in chronological order of their release date.

This is our first take on it. Not a total train wreck, at least! Hopefully...

This is pretty much the best thing I've seen in at least a week, possibly more.

Do yourself a favor and stay for the whole thing.

Lookit, I might normally turn up my nose at the thought of rather expensive towels, but, now that I've experienced them first-hand, and for something you use every day (sometimes more), I'm here to tell you that they're 100% worth it.

I feel the same way about moderately high thread count sheets (600+).

I'll have to give these towels a try.

Yesterday on the way home from Northpark I decided on a whim to try In-N-Out for the 2nd time in my life (and in about 15 years), since it was right there on the way home, and it was before 5, so I figured it wouldn't be stupid-crowded.

The cones and signs, starting from the access road on 75, directing traffic/cars more or less sealed the deal that, as I expected, I was kinda over In-N-Out the first time I tried it in San Francisco. My order was taken from my car in the drive-thru lane, I sat in line for maybe 10 minutes, got my hamburger and root beer, and ate/drank when I got home.

It's not a bad burger per se, but, it's definitely not anything I couldn't go the rest of my life with not having ever again. How's that for a triple, quadruple even, negative?

That was in fact a particularly great description. Not entirely inaccurate either!

Tl;dr: Superb service at a totally reasonable price offered by down-to-earth people. Longer review: I had recently gone in to the oil change shop down the street from where I work to have my car’s AC serviced/looked at since it was no longer blowing cold air. Since they weren’t equipped to repair it (they thought it might have been a pressure switch or expansion valve), the young man there (Darren) referred me to Jr.’s Euless Transmission, since his mother (April) ran the office and his uncle (Jimmy) was either part-owner or the main technician there (can’t recall). I called ahead, talked to April, and dropped my car off on a Thursday morning, planning to use Uber/Lyft to get back to my office. To my surprise, she offered to ride with me in my car back to my office so that she could just drive my car back to the shop. Fast forward to a few hours later, and when I called to check on its status, she was like ‘Oh, yeah, it was just a couple of relays so we’ve already ordered the parts and expect to have them shortly, after which we’ll get them put in and then I can just drop your car off back at your office for you. Your total will be $108.07.’ I was taken aback for several reasons. First and foremost I’ve never experienced service like that from a repair shop. It’s one thing to turn around a car and have it repaired within a day, but to do so (along with an AC check) for an extremely reasonable price, with only a half hour’s labor, *and* to offer me a ride back to my office as well as dropping my car back off for me? That’s awesome. Kudos to April and Jimmy for running what I feel is a great business with honest folk there who don’t mess around and get stuff done. I’ll come back and tell anyone who’s in need of a mechanic to look no further. I’m cross-posting this review on Yelp and Yellowpages too.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to shaved ice (my standard is a stand in New Orleans, where locals know them as "snoballs"), and this place comes as close as one could get, here in Texas. The ice is consistently smooth, and they've got a good variety of syrups. Plus, they're open until 10 7 days a week! Highly recommended.
