SE7EN Puppets



I think I already posted this. But it is so rad, it's worth a second. This one has some cuss words, so cover your ears.

Diplo+Dark Meat= I was there




Dark Meat SUCKS. Imagine a hipster troupe of 12 people all playing their instruments as loud as possible. Then put that troupe in a small room.

Diplo's set was ill. Best DJ set I've ever seen.

Knock it off with the boring blogs

Married-people blogs suck.

I've been lurking on some of my high school classmates' blogs tonight- I would say about 86% of those blogs are about married life. And they suck. The blogs are done by good people with good intentions, but the results are not good.

Each blog delves deep into the minutiae of picking out paint colors for Kayleb's new room, or how the Brooklynn finally learned to like green beans.

You don't believe me? Read one. Or two.

They're all using the same blog template too. It's terrible.

With that in mind, I've listed some tips to un-horrible your blog.
____________________________________________________
1) Remove your playlist. No one wants be bored AND listen to Faith Hill's "Lost" or Rascal Flatts "You." Most people would rather get stabbed than listen to your Russian Roulette of crappy music.

2) No more fetus widgets.They look like sea monkeys.


3) Stop exploiting your kids through your blogs. Some of their actions don't warrant a blog entry.

4) You're stuck in your blog. Relate to something you saw on TV (that doesn't have to do with Rascal Flatts new tour or Faith Hill's new fall look).

5) Knock it off with the artsy names for your kids. Simple is better. And if you do use a name from the bible, don't goof with the spelling. You don't have to manifest your creativity through your kid's name.

6) Lose the scrapbook template.

Champion Spirit



The Olympics is in full force. And the world gathers to watch the finest athletes compete in the world. It's a wonderful show.

But take a step back from the Olympics for a bit. During the course of the games you'll see some of the most obscure sports on the planet. Take the pommel horse for example. There are men and women who devote their entire lives to perfecting their routine. These people are absolutely amazing at what they do. But imagine training for decades to spin around on a glorified work bench.

You'd never get to go outside. Or go to late movies. Your events would be lightly attended. It's a life of obscurity. Muscular obscurity.

Musical Duldrums

I'm bored of my music. To the point where I've literally thrown CDs out my car window. And lately there's hasn't been much to cure my ails.

Well I take that back. Podcasts are my saving grace. Stones Throw, Mad Decent, and This American Life. They're musical manna.

I find I unconsciously listen to the same 25 songs until they're sickening to my Limbic system. The cure: Change it up. I started listening to the radio. Georgia Tech's WREK 91.1 has a great eclectic mix. And that turned me onto blues. And jazz.

The radio, podcasts, and the shuffle gods put the spice back through my headphones.

On a similar music sidenote: That Shwayze song BLOWS. Their approachable faux-hipster rap/melodic stylings are not long for this world. It's 14:58 on their 15 minutes of fame.

In case you missed it



This is the NOS car from yesterday's rally semifinals. This vid has an onboard cam.

If there's a lesson to be learned from this: Always carry enough speed. And wear seatbelts.

Missing the Mountains

I'm on a YouTube binge. Watching all the ski movies and amazing powder days that alluded me last year. Here's one that catches the mood.



Song is Royksopp's "What Else is There."
