“Here’s my favorite trick at the grocery store. We’re in the produce section and I start sorting through the watermelons and act like I’m trying to find one that’s ripe. At some point I ask [my wife] to hold a really big one for me while I get the one under it. She puts her purse down, struggles to get a handle on the watermelon and I just grab the cart and walk away. She’s standing there in the aisle holding this damn watermelon and I’m nowhere to be found. She falls for at least twice/year. I never stop laughing!”

Quote from my former manager on Facebook.

There is the premise that if you have to explain a performance art piece it loses its value. However, much like an old movie with a clever twist, if you haven’t seen it by now you can’t blame someone else for telling you that Bruce Willis’s character is a ghost — enough time has passed […]

I’m in the Denver airport, on my way back to Austin. I think I came out $100 ahead, speaking from a gambling perspective, but it’s hard to tell because I didn’t keep my spending money separate from my wagering money. This picture (taken on the layover before our flight into Vegas) is little consolation for […]

I’m gearing up for a weekend in Vegas, googling and planning, coming up with ideas. I came upon a readers poll of the 2009 Best of Vegas from the Las Vegas Review-Journal. You can probably guess the punchline to this question, but you’ll be flummoxed at the follow-up. According to the readers of the Las […]

Dear YouTube Generation- All the way back in 1997, I hosted a page of videos on my web site created using cutting edge technology. They were about 1% the size of the 3-4 minute vlogs we love today, and I was only able to afford hosting them because I was friends with the guy who […]

Please, re-blog “this”:http://whatevs.tumblr.com/post/64545672/im-pretty-sure-tumblr-makes-you-stupid. thegurglingcod: I never entirely bought into the idea of blog years, but I’m not sure what else explains the nostalgia I feel for the pre-Tumblr era. At the risk of sounding as if I am pining for some discursive never-never land, like I was some Frankfurt School refugee who wound up beached […]

Several of us had a near-death experience Sunday, but I wanted you all to know that we’re just fine and explain what happened. Becky, Sandy and I decided to go see the new Batman movie — awesowe, btw — and we got a call from Mike and Kelly that they were going to the same […]
