Why I'd Rather Rent in NYC than Own Anywhere Else

much as ...

Appeasing The Wolf
This post originally appeared on The Famished Freelancer on 12/3/13. Back in 2008, when the economy went to Hell (again), I knew it was time to hunker down. I'd switched to freelancing, which was great for my sanity, but not my checking account. But I didn'...

Life is Just So Fucking Inconvenient

A Tale of Two Cookbooks
With luck, my couscous will look like this. Last week, I read this essay by novelist Michael Chabon about a family trip to Morocco. Long story short, they ate so much couscous that they managed to get bored of it. It's been ages since I've eaten couscous, s...

Sitcoms
I had a great idea for a blog post, but it was right before bed, so I didn't write it immediately. Then I remembered it while messing around on Twitter. So I just tweeted about it instead: Eddie Huang is pissed off that the sitcom version of his life doesn'...
