Seinfeld, Coffee, and a Show About Nothing - I read a NY Times interview with Jerry Seinfeld which inspired a full post about the difficulties of interviewing celebrities and Seinfeld short web-based series called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Girls: OCD, It's Back - I wrote a lewd recap of Girls from the standpoint of a dirty, middle-aged man.
Doctor THC - It was time to get a renewal on my medicinal marijuana card and there was a huge difference in seeing a doctor in West Hollywood versus San Francisco.
Pay the Fucking Writer - It's not easy being a freelance writer when it's impossible to get paid. Also, there's a video of a classic rant by Harlan Ellison.
Lee Morgan the Sidewinder - I have been on a huge Lee Morgan kick and I wrote a little bit about the tragic trumpet player.
Writers, Booze, and Drugs - If I had a chance to hang out with 16 of my literary heroes, what kind of drugs or booze would I do with them?
Beck's 'Loser' Turns 20 - Wow. I'm getting old. Beck's Loser is now 20? Are you kidding me?
We also had a very busy week over at Ocelot Sports (@OcelotSports). I participated in a round table about major league baseball win totals (with the gang at Ocelot) and wrote a little something about Mo Rivera...
Round Table: American League Win Totals
Round Table: National League Win Totals
Mariano Rivera and the Summer of 96 - The Yankees closer will be retiring at the end of the season and I shared my thoughts about the best season in his career which happened during the summer of 1996.
Over at Coventry Music (@CoventryMusic), I posted a few things...
Hoopsie Daisy: Snow Dancing - The Lovely Katie Sunshine getting down in the snow to some MGMT.
2001 Video: Kubrick and Soul Train - I couldn't sleep one night so I came up with a video featuring Phish's 2001 and clips from Kubrick's A Space Odyssey and Soul Train.
This week's writing music included...
Lush Life by John Coltrane
The Sixth Sense by Lee Morgan
The Cooker by Lee Morgan
