  • Phillies Win, Mets Continue to Lose

    Wow. It must suck to be a Mets fan right now. The NL East is all tied up now.

  • Odd Man In game started

    I haven’t started an Odd Man In game in forever, mostly because I thought the players still into it were fine with the private games, but xorg (and my mom) has been bugging me to start a public game. Oddsmobile has begun and the first moves are due Monday.

  • Rogan?

    This video was highly enjoyable for me. Brian is probably the only person who reads this site that ever played Age of Empires though.

  • Interpol @ The Tower Theater

    A friend offered Interpol tickets to Jeanne and I a few days ago. I’ve never seen them live and I’ve heard good things, so we decided to go. The Liars opened up and everyone around us hated them. I thought each of their songs tried to emulate a different band. I had fun guessing whether…

  • Dude_____

    As most of you know I’m a big fan of Jason Zahn’s world famous GameShow. I submitted a bunch of possible word ideas two years ago and today one of my phrases made it’s way to the game: Dude____ I’ve gotten so much crap for this word today.

  • This American Life

    I know I’m late to the party on this, but how brilliant is This American Life? While most shows are about extraordinary events and people, This American Life examines the lives of mundane, ordinary people. They take the time required to find out things like why summer camp is like a cult, or that the…

  • Wayback Machine

    I’ve posted this before, but man you have to love the Wayback Machine at You can go back and view almost anything on the web from the past. August, 2002 One of my first web pages in 1999 Some more… Retro Google BoingBoing circa 1998 A site I designed in 2000

  • Another Rib Try

    I made baby back ribs again for the game today (argh!) and they turned out great. The main difference was that I smoked them with hickory chips and I cooked two racks at a time instead of just one. A neighborhood cat tried to eat them right off the grill. I almost screwed up the…

  • Hang on to your Ego

    Great song, but crazy video. I never saw it until today.

  • Is This Thing On?

    The Tease I mean. Ouch: I shouldn’t be surprised the Phillies won’t be making the playoffs this year, but I always am. I’ve never seen a Phillies team hit this well, but it still won’t make up for bad pitching. The only starters I’d like to see back next year are Hamels and Kendrick. Myers…

  • Chicago AM Stations Heard in Philly?

    My brother swears he can get Chicago’s ESPN Radio 1000AM in and around Philly at night. I was skeptical, but then I looked it up on Wikipedia: Medium wave and short wave radio signals act differently during daytime and nighttime. During the day, AM signals travel by groundwave, diffracting around the curve of the earth…
