"I brings the ruckus?"
Interests: Here are things that I have and that I like: my sons--Nathan and Aidan, my cats--Uncle Lewis and The Admiral, my ipod (which is filled with music from such bands as My Morning Jacket, The Flaming Lips, The Avett Brothers, Radiohead, Van Morrison, and Wilco. You can also find the latest podcast of Tony Kornheiser's daily radio show), my Netflix membership, which I am currently using to watch Mad Men and The Wire and documentaries about typefaces. Here are things that I have and don't like: Psoriasis and Seasonal Allergies

If you had told me 20 years ago that one day I would be able to pay less than 10 bucks a month to watch any episode from six seasons of 30 Rock on my TV anytime I wanted, I probably would have responded : "What the heck is 30... Continue reading

Probably the best explanation I've heard for the suckiness of popular music. ...But not the most profound... Continue reading

I kept hearing a song at work with a drum loop and a catchy little keyboard part that was reminiscent of Schoolhouse Rock. I did a google search for what I thought was called "Dracula Girl". Ha. The song is actually called "Spectacular Girl." It's from an album called "Tomorrow... Continue reading

This time next week I'll be watching My Morning Jacket at White River State Park in downtown Indianapolis. What's more awesome is that I'll also be watching Nate Groves watch My Morning Jacket as he attends his first concert*. This makes me the most excited I've ever been about a... Continue reading

I'm afraid I did the late, great Jeff Buckley a disservice a couple of months ago when I posted that he looked like Ziggy from The Wire. I stand by my opinion regarding the similarity, but I felt that the Screamin' Jay Hawkins cover (Alligator Wine) is amusing but not... Continue reading

Also, at the 1:05 mark look for the dude in the hat as he eats an eye booger.
We don't get to hear speeches very often. Pretty much the only times we sit down and pay attention to someone in front of us at a podium are at church, at funerals, in college public speaking classes, or if we randomly wander into some press conference somewhere. Oh, and... Continue reading

It's been a little over a year since I had my world rocked by the news that my kids would be moving to Florida. This time last year I was dreading the move and wondering and worrying and just generally getting all weepy several times a day. It's been a... Continue reading
