we live in a good time
a time where video cameras are inexpensive
editing software is fantastic
and the sun is always shining.
with those things so many more stories can be told.
like this little 5 minute buddy about a south central bicycle club
noones ever heard of.

i remember going on a date to go to the movie
and we were driven by my date’s mom
who also saw the movie with us
and we all cried
and loved it
and saw it again the next week, minus the chaperone.
no one ever talks about henry thomas, the kid who played el-i-ot
erryone talks about Drew, who was pretty great too.
but this is his audition tape which you need to watch all the way through
if you havent seen the Michael Moore film
or if you are like me, and watch it every 9/11
here it is, somehow.
and here we are,
bob dylan is the greatest.
people are all envious of naked prince harry
or suave ass george clooney
or the guy who gets to drive the zamboni
but why wouldnt you wanna be bob dylan
smart, talented, unique, intense,
cryptic, mysterious, perfect.
for some reason i have two copies of his book
and i have not read it.
i listen every day to dylan.

because you only heard it on bootlegs or in concert, one was never sure if the line was
“Jesus rides a Harley, he never works, or sweats”
or “Jesus writes beside me, he never barfs or smokes.”

but it did allow fans to hear that westerberg was saying
“Jesus rides beside me, he never buys any smokes.”
rhode island’s deer tick kicked ass with this cover.
i once dated a girl and it was like two magnets but pointed the wrong way
i was obsessed with her
and she seemed to like going out with me.
but when we got close it was like something was pushing us away.
we went out time and time again and she was so cute
and i was so tall and handsome back then
but there was a strange lack of spark somehow.
i feel that way about this video by my gf kiki
two of my KPCC colleagues and several of my former LAT amigos
met up last week for ONA LA at the LA Times
a few minutes into this video, fellow Cub fan Ben Welsh takes over
by showing – to me – the most interesting desk at the LA Times
The Data Desk
very small collection of ridiculously smart computer scientists who also happen to be
