What I want to know is, when are we going to drop the other shoe and just start referring to it as F***book.

When they die, bad copywriters go to Copywriter Hell. Where they're forced to churn out spam email subject lines for the rest of eternity.

Further proof-- as if any was needed-- that Comic Sans is Evil, and Must Be Destroyed.

At #Starbucks (!), drinking hot chocolate (I wouldn't swallow their stale, improperly roasted, watered-down, one-third-inferior-Robusta-bean faux-coffee simulacra on a dare)...and I'm shocked-- shocked, I tell you-- to hear the following coming over the speakers. 

I for one am not quite ready to welcome our new Corporate Coffee Masters, but well played, Starbucks, well played...even if you did the Diana Krall version and not the infinitely hipper covers by Ella and Louis, or Nat Cole or (my personal fave) Slim & Slam.

Some of the edits are rough, and the plot doesn't make much sense, but this is visually more interesting than Prometheus or anything else I've seen from Hollywood this year.
 
This is well worth watching, great effects - I won't spoil the story line, just watch it already!

Consider the Two For One special as a microcosm of our culture: You pay the same price you would have paid anyway for the privilege of consuming twice as much as you wanted in the first place.

Well, "trippy" is certainly better than "sinister," which is what one friend had to say,.

Another gem from the P-List.

Who knew? Turns out the first American cowboys were Irish, the first cattle drive here was in Boston, and the first cattle baron was an ancestor of...author Thomas #Pynchon.

Great read.  Perhaps someone should update this Wikipedia entry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_drives_in_the_United_States

Turns out there's a film about my old teacher Lou Harrison premiering in Chicago tomorrow. Who's going? 

There's a trailer on the website so you can see what the film is about. 

I studied Javanese gamelon and sulingan (flutes) with Lou for a couple years in college and took classes in world musics and tuning systems from him. He was a very nice man and an amazing musician.
