Down with Love

Wednesday, April 30th, 2003 · Comments Off on Down with Love

Down with Love hits theaters May 16. It’s a cute movie that reminds me of a 1960s version of the Brady Bunch movies — chock-full of sexual innuendos and gags. It was a fun movie to watch on a Tuesday night, especially since it was free. Every once in a while, Jen and I end […]

Dishwasher Dreams

Wednesday, April 30th, 2003 · Comments Off on Dishwasher Dreams

Today it struck me that it would kick ass to have a portable dishwasher. Living as I now do without a dishwasher has made me appreciate the great invention that is the automatic dishwasher. Yes, I live in a small San Francisco apartment, but it just so happens that my kitchen has this neat little […]

Shove a Cigarette Down Bush’s Throat

Wednesday, April 30th, 2003 · 6 Comments

Yet again the Bush administration tries to prevent something good — heaven forbid — from happening in the world. Why? What the hell is his problem? Does he like that 5 million people die every year from tobacco-related diseases? Does he like that that number will double in 3 years? Has he ever seen someone […]

Santorum Transcript

Tuesday, April 29th, 2003 · 1 Comment

Frank Boosman has an excellent play-by-play commentary on the full, unedited transcript of Sen. Santorum‘s conversation with the AP. Meanwhile, here are some hilarious and oh-so-deep thoughts from the conservative rag Town Hall: Gays are citizens and human beings; you don’t have to like everything they do behind closed doors to appreciate the fact that […]

Iraq’s Most Wanted

Tuesday, April 29th, 2003 · 1 Comment

You know you live in America when a war has barely ended and already companies are trying to capitalize on it. Gotta love it. Pop-up browser windows displaying the above image and taking you here to order your very own kitschy Iraq’s most wanted playing cards for only $5.95. That cracks me up. It also […]

Oil & Violence

Tuesday, April 29th, 2003 · Comments Off on Oil & Violence

Saudi Arabia: Number 1 oil exporter to the U.S. Iraq: Number 2 oil exporter to the U.S. Nigeria: Number 5 oil exporter to the U.S. What do all these places have in common? Blood spill. When the Earth bleeds oil, why do humans spill blood? … Why is “black gold” a common link in many […]

Amazing Race 3

Monday, April 28th, 2003 · 2 Comments

Too bad I’ve never seen The Amazing Race. I just learned that the winners of the most recent one are fellow Vassar alums Flo Pesenti and Zach Behr, both Class of 2001. Flo certainly looks familiar and Zach’s name is familiar, though I don’t think I knew either of them personally, even though our time […]

I recently launched a new services section of my site. In it, I describe the Web consulting and Web hosting services that I now offer. I’m a reseller for TotalChoice Hosting, so if you need your site hosted but need some hand-holding for getting your domain name registered and your site set up, then Gabe […]

Rebuilding Together

Sunday, April 27th, 2003 · Comments Off on Rebuilding Together

If you’re a fairly regular reader of my blog, you may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as much lately as I normally tend to do. I guess it’s basically because I’ve been feeling pretty run down as of late. I’m not exactly sure why, other than I just have all these thoughts and […]

Friday, April 25th, 2003 · Comments Off on TypePad

Very cool: The makers of Movable Type have announced a new product and funding. The new service will be hosted and will surely offer lots more features than MT currently does — I’d bet to include better support for photo blogs and upload of multiple files. It’ll be exciting to test out the beta in […]
