Off to Sconny

Another bachelor party for this weekend.  Going to enjoy some time on the lake with a friend from school and relax a bit before my big day next Friday.  There’s still plenty to finalize for the wedding, but overall it seems to be under control.  I’m lucky in that Teresa has handled most of the [...]

Breaking Bad Back

I’ve watched Breaking Bad since the third season, while watching the back log prior. It’s a really great show. All the actors hold their parts very well. If you aren’t familiar with the plot line (all two of you out there), a high school chemistry teacher finds himself with cancer and no [...]

Prose Decomposed #8: Aesop Rock’s Gopher Guts

Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts; Poolside; 0 for 1 and don’t forget spoons twice
Lukewarm folgers; mold on his moonpie
Rooms in his home that dissipate into fruit flies
Suicide lane wide load ride looting in the wake of an amicable marooning
My duty go from moving in packs to sharing food with a cat. [To Moms:] “it’s me, I [...]

Beat the Heat

It’s been a sweltering summer here in Minneapolis.  We’ve been routinely hitting nineties and even up to one hundred degrees lately.  Many out there may be thinking, “Um, I live in the Southern half of the US?”  That’s a pretty common reaction to people in Minnesota complaining.  The big difference in heat up here is [...]

Amazon’s New Deal: Same Day Delivery

On Friday this article on Amazon jumped into my periphery and absolutely floored me.  It’s basically an explanation of how Amazon is going to stop fighting with states about whether or not they should pay the sales taxes associated and instead create physical distribution centers there instead.  I’d assume they would start in large MSA’s [...]

Boss Less Companies?

In the last few months I’ve been seeing a few questions about whether companies should embrace the idea of drastically fewer bosses, or even going without bosses altogether.  I think Valve is a really great example here, though there technically is a “boss” in Gabe Newell, they are purposefully designed to be as flat as [...]

Computer Up And Running, So….

What should I be using it for?  It struck me pretty odd that when my hard drive crashed I didn’t have anything really significant other than pictures.  I’d taken a few trips (Seoul, New Zealand, Mexico) over the years and it would be nice to keep those, but beyond that the only thing that legitimately [...]

Back Up Your Data

Well worth the money, of course.  I just kept putting off an external hard drive and finally, of course, it popped, leaving me without about 6 years worth of photos.  Luckily, the other aspects of this computer were pretty minimal.  Most of my music (at least all of it that I listen to with regularity) [...]
