I’ve been collecting things my whole life. It started with comic books. As soon as I could read I had a stash of comics that I refused to get rid of. I was physically incapable of throwing away a comic book. Like lots of kids my age I also got into Star Wars figures (and …
I feel like I had another active year in 2012. That’s good. I like being active. I get a real mental benefit from regular bouts of steady exercise. I know this because I turn into a dick (figuratively, of course, I retain my human form at all times) if I go more than a week …
I’ve been grilling a long time and I think my burger game is pretty tight. I like them grilled because I can cook a half dozen at a time (if I need to) and the smokiness doesn’t jack up our small kitchen (when we cook bacon, the smell/smoke seems to linger forever). I’ve had diner-style (or smashed) burgers before and they’re definitely tasty. I’m not 100% into the greasiness, though, which is probably why I prefer the grilling.
This article at Serious Eats, however, has me straight-up inspired to get some burger smashing going on a cast iron skillet.
I mean, come on. Even I, a long-time grilling advocate, gets some saliva turning at this photo:

I was a huge fan of their last album, despite some of it getting into guitar-noodly free jams. There was enough of a foundation to the songs to keep them grounded and listenable. “Elephant” is definitely on the more psychedelic end of their spectrum but it gets me geeked all the same.

I’m a hearty #2 man, myself. I’ve joked forever about “having a salad” when presented with an opportunity to upgrade to newer, lighter bike parts. Semi-rad uses some math to further the case for GI regularity.
If your full-time job is something other than “professional cyclist,” I think you should save the money you’d like to spend on the newest ultralight bike frame, get something cheaper, and just take a dump before you go on your ride.

These photos from the early-early days of skateboarding are nuts. Looking at the deathtraps these kids are careening around on makes me wonder how any of them lived long enough to tell the tales of their adventures. Some of them are, literally, 2x4s with some old roller skate wheels tacked on. Crazy

It sold out pretty quickly. Kawsone.com was getting clobbered the whole time I was in there. At $315 there wasn’t any way I was going to be able to get one, but it was fun to monkey around with a big time drop. I’m a big, dumb nerd for Kaws. Not so much his Spongebob …
Johnny5 ?!?! 3PO?!?!
I’ve got way too many tee shirts already but this is the kind of thing that I would wear all of the time. I mean, c’mon. Look at the faux-comics ad for it!
I put a Swami-inspired mix together for Mike’s annual music expo: http://summermixseries.com/
This *should* be the link to mine. I’ve had some trouble getting the page to load properly. I swear. Take a couple of months off and you forget how to use the damn internet.
