I'm a huge fan of #BestCoast   - their previous album was awesome, and this first video from their new album has everything good.

All the hoopla around #fiftyshadesofgrey  with Dakota Johnson reminded me of "A Boy and his Dog" with Don Johnson - 'a rather kinky tale of survival' set in the year 2024, 'a future you'll probably live to see'

You know, I don't remember EVER going to the Roxie back in the day.  But... I've done some things that have done violence to my memory, so it's entirely possible.  And it's hard to think of where else we would have seen a midnight show then, other than the UC Theater.

Some great storm pictures
Professional storm chaser Roger Hill captured these incredible images during this year's hurricane season. He travelled nearly 50,000 miles overall in search of extreme formations like tornadoes and supercells

I could have wished for something a bit less pink, but anything that breaks down the gender divide is welcome

If you haven't seen it already, check out this video from PopSci - it's inspiring. Makes me want to grab some eWaste from the street and head down to Noisebridge.

I didn't jailbreak my current iPhone, but I think I should be able to do it to anything I own.

The Kite patch is a new way to combat mosquitos - and mosquito borne illnesses such as malaria.  It looks like this Indiegogo campaign is for a commercial venture - I'd have been much happier with a non-profit, but they do have giving the patches to families in Uganda as a key component of their crowd-funding pitch.

Here's an awesomely excellent sounding crowdfunding campaign:

Black Girls CODE - Summer of CODE 2013 - The Remix
Help fund the next generation of tech and expose 2,000+ girls to coding during our expanded CODE summer program.

The reasons this is an awesome idea are many. Development studies show that across a whole range of metrics for social wellbeing, the education and uplifting of women is just about the best thing you can do to improve social conditions. Everyone is going on about how important coding skills are, but we know that these skills are not being evenly distributed.  Time and again we are hearing about problems of sexism and racism in the tech industry.  And most generally, every kid should have the opportunity to pursue and learn things that interest them, and we need to do better about making sure all kids in this country have opportunities to learn coding... and music, and writing (826 Valencia), and art, and farming, and physics, and...

Story
Tagline
There's no kill switch on my sweet, sweet style.
Introduction
Nick is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, film buff and occasional reviewer, and former private detective. Raised in San Francisco on classic films, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in cafés with a laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

Occasionally, he does Macintosh tech support, editing, and social media consulting to pay for his coffee. 

He would like a job in nonprofit arts administration, or teaching film/critical media literacy.
Bragging rights
I once rode in an elevator with George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. I've flown around the world - both east to west and west to east - and been on six of the seven continents (no prizes for guessing which one I haven't been on yet).
