So I just sent like 6 emails to prospective new roommates with rooms for rent. Now I sit back and wait for the responses to roll in, right?

Hey have you guys listened to this yet? But seriously!
 
I'd never heard this version of Tom Waits' "Blue Skies." (Apparently it was only released as a 45.)

Oh boy, what a version it is.

Help me, +Krysta Gahagen: I need to figure out how I feel about the new Google+.

The hashtag features are slick. The chat/hangout features are now more streamlined, but not so great for invisibility when online. There is a lot of white space - could be good or bad, depending on who you are. Either way, it's still just Google+, it's still just another social network, and it's still just absolutely destroying Facebook muahahahaha. Or something. The fonts are pretty. +Aaron Wood had some funny posts about the redesign.

I like Google+ in general, but I don't see this redesign as something that's going to get a lot of the users back on for more than just a few minutes (and those minutes will be spent trying to remember what G+ looked like a year ago when they last intentionally logged in, so they can tweet about whether or not they like it).

Just rode my bike right between an Off The Grid food truck gathering on my left and a Body Freedom anti-nudity-ban protest—featuring plenty of naked protesters—on my right, and I think I'm starting to get used to this city.

Keep DRM out of the HTML5 standard. The open web is no place for anti-user technology.

Well go ahead and call the cops. You don't meet nice girls in coffee shops.

Check out this awesome Golden Gate Bridge bike. Looks like it'd be less that totally fun to ride on San Francisco's hills.

Great cover of a song that was already better than it had any damn right to be.

Lots of these Tiny Desk concerts are great, but I think this Raphael Saadiq performance from almost 3 years ago is the pinnacle.
