Super Size Me

Friday, October 22nd, 2004 · 6 Comments

Last night Jen and I watched Super Size Me, which is basically the book version of Fast Food Nation. That is, by the end, even if you never eat fast food like us, you’re still feeling pretty disgusted by food in general and the American attitude toward food. It was an excellent movie. The premise, […]

Breaking the Curse

Thursday, October 21st, 2004 · 1 Comment

Last night was a night like any other: I walked the dogs, mowed the lawn, enjoyed some wine, ate some pizza. And then I watched baseball history in the making as the Red Sox became the first team in history to come from a 0-3 game deficit and defeat the Yankees in the ALCS 10-3, […]

Mary Cheney

Tuesday, October 19th, 2004 · 1 Comment

Mike Benedetto sums up best my thoughts on why Kerry’s having mentioned Mary Cheney in the final debate wasn’t a big deal until the Cheneys made an issue of the “bad man” who stated the facts in a respectful way: “Why are they angry? Because it is a political liability to have a gay daughter […]

Red Sox

Tuesday, October 19th, 2004 · 5 Comments

Watching the longest post-season baseball game in history last night, I really found myself enjoying it. It’s been many years since I’ve really followed a professional sport closely — I usually tune in only when the Giants or 49ers are in their respective championships — but this year I’ve found myself becoming a Boston Red […]

Electoral Map Update

Monday, October 18th, 2004 · Comments Off on Electoral Map Update

Nearly a month ago, the Electoral Vote Predictor 2004 showed a Bush lead of 273-255 over Kerry. Not that I’ve put much weight in polling all along, but I’d just like to point out for the record that the map currently shows Kerry polling ahead, 257-247. Good news indeed. Hopefully this will put skeptics like […]

This Weekend

Monday, October 18th, 2004 · 1 Comment

This weekend I partied with friends, new and old. When the Red Sox were rained out, we revamped the Foulke the Yankees site with photos and song. We played into the night. Team F the Yankees… fuck yeah! This weekend we implemented the finishing blueline edits into 100 Faces of Marin. It is now final. […]

SF Trip II

Sunday, October 17th, 2004 · Comments Off on SF Trip II

I’m too tired to write as detailed a recap of this most recent SF trip as I did for the last one, but suffice it to say that I had a kick-ass time with everyone, and was there October 9th through the 13th. The pictures can tell the rest of the story. View all SF […]

Craigslist Albany

Sunday, October 17th, 2004 · 1 Comment

Craigslist Albany has, at long last, arrived. It must have just launched in the past few days since there’s not much activity yet. Now the goal is spreading the word around the Capital Region to make our local version of craiglist as popular and as useful as it is in San Francisco and New York. […]

Jon Stewart on Crossfire

Friday, October 15th, 2004 · Comments Off on Jon Stewart on Crossfire

“You’re as big a dick on your show as you are on any show,” said the Comedy Central host to the CNN host. If you missed yesterday’s episode of CNN’s Crossfire, try to track down a copy (or read the transcript). Jon Stewart was the guest and he really put hosts Paul Begala and Tucker […]

Google has released its long-anticipated Google Desktop tool, which indexes your computer and puts the power of the Google search right on your desktop. Installation is fast and easy, then you access it via your Web browser just like you would view any other Google tool (Web, News, Froogle, etc.). Once installed, it actually runs […]
