Love watching them play as much as hearing them. I can see myself in that environment. I missed my calling.
Even if you don’t like the language, you have to love the beat and the way this video is shot. The actors are great and the scene is complete political mayhem. This video probably isn’t too far from reality these days. I can watch it over and over.
I’m still upset that Google provided Reader, then killed it. Don’t let the same mess happen with podcasts. Big companies are trying to monetize and monopolize an open standard. Please don’t let this happen. Learn more: PODCAST WARS: $100 MILLION STARTUP LUMINARY LAUNCHES TOMORROW WITHOUT REPLY ALL OR THE DAILY Spotify gets serious about podcasts […]
Summer tracks. 🔥
I probably won’t be able to afford such a moving company the next time we relocate (whenever that may be). Before we move, I hope I remember to watch this video. This company has created a new category of science about moving.
My daughter sent me this video and it is far too accurate (and funny)!
Your terminal is not a terminal: An Introduction to Streams: Streams are just that: streams. In the same way that a river has a stream of water, programs have streams of data. Moreover, just like you can use steel pipes to carry water from one place to another, you can use UNIX pipes to carry […]
I’ve seen John Prine live and even shaken his hand backstage. I’ve seen Roger Waters live. I’m privileged enough that I’ve seen both more than once, but never together. I found this video a while ago, but it always punches me in the gut. So great!
Just an amazing collection of classic guitars.
It is always amazing to me when someone excels at performing and almost looks bored while explaining what they do. Witness Mark Knopfler. There’s more.
I don’t remember how I first stumbled across the amazing pianist VK Goes Wild. Here is a sample of her work covering Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody on a Bösendorfer concert grand piano. It’s no ordinary cover though! She not only meticulously plays the music, but accurately includes what would be the vocals as well. Her music […]
Thom Yorke always amazes me. Time signature? Down beat? Try to find it. It shouldn’t work, but it does.
I have not seen this movie. I will see this movie. What a beautiful thing.
My cousin Andy is an amazing magician. Please enjoy his work.
Micah Cash paired photos with an essay Waffle House Vistas for the Bitter Southerner. It’s excellent. Waffle House Vistas — THE BITTER SOUTHERNER: …nearly every Southerner feels a personal connection to Waffle House. How can a cookie-cutter restaurant chain win over the hearts of millions of people? My answer is inclusivity. In my experience, when […]
I’m a huge fan of Amanda Palmer’s work and this collaboration with Anna Calvi is particularly brave. Usually artists choose something with a great hook you can dance to if they’re going to cover a song. Think Twist and Shout or Louie Louie. Instead, they chose David Bowie’s swan song Blackstar and it’s amazing.
I can relate. —from David Lynch’s Lost Highway.
My son was in a car wreck a couple of weeks ago. That’s why I am at Starbucks right now. My wife drove his busted car to the shop near where she works this morning. I am at the corporate coffeehouse down the road from her office waiting for 5 o’clock to happen here instead […]
Drawing a picture badly I’m not very good at it. But it doesn’t matter. It’s the fun of doing it that’s important. No matter how anybody says it is. It feels good to have made something.
Anxiety and depression are lurkers. For years, I suspected something was wrong with me and I just couldn't figure out what it was. Strike that. Nothing was wrong with me, but I did need help. It took me until May 2018—way too long—to sheepishly mention something to my doctor. Like everyone else I have talked […]
