Ideas which I have had, Vol. 1

2 Jun

For under $3, you can design your own bumper sticker. These are great times we live in.

I want to order this one for my car.


The only question is, whose phone number should I use?


In case you were wondering

…what the hell those “Powered by Plinky” posts were about, Plinky is a thing I am trying out. It asks me random questions every week and if I answer them, I can publish them here. Here’s my page over there.

So far the questions are like something from a youth group ice breaker. Boring.

Hello, Karl Marx.

19 Jan

I clicked on a link to this book, Veeps: Profiles in Insignificance: The American Vice Presidential Pantheon from Adams to Cheney, and this happened.


Is Amazon playing a joke on me because I am looking at a book that makes fun of vice presidents? Has something like this ever happened to you? I tried to Google things like “Amazon thinks I am a communist” but all I got were a bunch of books on Karl Marx at Amazon. I clicked on the recommendations Amazon had for Karl based on items he already owns, and here is a sampling – a potato peeler, a bottle opener, and a book on how to organize the proletariat.

Here are some compelling reasons to love the internet. Maybe you know them all, maybe you don’t. (I already shared some of them in my Google reader, if we’re friends there.)

Radio Lab Podcast. I will seriously tear up talking about this because it’s sooOOOo goOOOd. It’s like the very best of This American Life, but SCIENCE. And never douchey. Lucia and 11 frogs told me about it a few months ago when I asked for recommendations and I tore through their archives immediately. I have a crush on Jad Abumrad. A big one. They are two months away from the next season and for now just releasing short pieces.

The Morning News. Links to other news sites but they also write their own stuff. My favorite features are the advice column, The Non-Expert (GO READ How To Say I Love You YOU WILL LOL) and the Letters From section. Right now Rosecrans Baldwin is writing from Paris and Jil Wheeler from Mumbai. I signed Whitney up for their map quiz and I think he won something already.

Sweet Juniper. Husband and wife blogging team. Where the Fleet Foxes cover I posted came from. I want them to invite me over to dinner.

A Cup of Tea and a Wheat Penny. Actually, the Fleet Foxes cover came from here and Sweet Juniper linked to that. So I just started reading it. Pretty great.

Grace Undressed. Former exotic dancer trying to quit the business. She can write.

Pandora. Okay, I know, everyone knows about Pandora. But it saved me while my ipod was broken and the channel I created (Fleet Foxes + Andrew Bird) led me to Slowreader. TRY Politics Music and Drugs РVERY CATCHY.

I can’t get enough of this album cover. I wish I had a poster for my room. I am weak for wet beards.

This makes me giggle

You can buy a t-shirt here with a vague sense of some place in the USA without ever visiting, just like the models who are Photoshopped in to place.
