In some ways I’m more into podcasts than music right now. I’m going to try to pitch you the idea of podcasts, but I am going to try to explain why they’re my media of choice right now. They’re something that feels fresh and provides me with entertainment. They fill a void in my life that had remained empty since high school - ever since I started college, I have watched...
Books are Stupid, iTunes is Smart
This is what I was thinking to myself as I went to bed last night. I was thinking about the millions of people walking around in our cities with white earbuds stuck in their ears, and how people in the publishing industry are producing great content and being utterly ridiculous about the medium they want to distribute it with.

Hooray! My favorite show on radio is back for a new season, and this first episode is on the concept of choice, which I have been thinking about lately anyway.

There’s some kind of powerful juju going on in craft brewing. I don’t know what it is but it has something to do with Sam Calagione making an award-winning beer by seeking out the help of an archaeological chemist.

Raconteurs - Old Enough This is actually my favorite song off Consolers of the Lonely even though its not really a Jack White song. Upbeat electric organ keeps the slide guitar and violin moving along at a more rock-oriented fast tempo.

Al Gore Is Using Twitter →
Mind:blown. Not only is he using twitter, but during the interview that he tweets about, he says that he’s going to get a twitter app for his iPhone, and then his very next tweet IS FROM HIS IPHONE (it says “from twitterific - an iPhone app). Holy shit.

Somewhat remarkable since James draws Oliver the same(except for the wings, which are new), all he does differently is add a smile and have him be’s cute.I would write about webcomics every day, but that’s not worth it even if you’re good at it.

President Bush is doing a lot of damage to our country right now that will take Obama years to undo in the form of rushed regulations and guidelines.
listen. David Byrne can’t vote. He’s as American as you or I, but he’s not a citizen and he can’t vote today. He’s very concerned about the direction our country is going in, though, so please vote for Barack Obama. Don’t do it for Barack, or yourself, or me. Do it for David Byrne. He needs this.
