Well, I'm here... Arrived from SxSW a few hours ago. Have back to back meetings all day for the next two days, and a business party to attend on Thursday night. I leave around noon on Friday. That basically gives me tomorrow night, if I'm going to get out. But I have early meetings the next morning,...

Chicago: March 16 --> Weekend

I'm going to be in Chicago for a couple of business meetings on March 16th & 17th. Looking to see if there are any shows, on the 17th, 18th or 19th worth extending my trip a day or two, to see. Couldn't just be any old show, would have to be somebody worth it, as I would be paying extra days, on...

I always thought that my first "concert" (concert being defined as a dedicated live music event at a stadium, coliseum or large theatrical venue) was Simon And Garfunkel at Giants Stadium (which I thought was 1981), and my second concert was AC/DC on the supporting tour of For Those About ...

Damn, I thought my love of capes was a well-kept secret. Curse you, Google Earth! Re: wings of the HQ There's also the advertising wing, which we keep sealed off from the editorial wings, of course. Unfortunately, we sealed them up and forgot to give them a way to get fresh food and water, so they ...

"drinlin'" ?

I don't know what that is.

I have a client, and... a woman I'll simple call 'a close relative of BJ,' works at their office. She once mentioned having some evening plans with him. She didn't say "Bill Joel" by name, only referenced him by relation but everybody knows the relationship. The way she said it I'm pretty ...

Noise oh Glorious Noise

A road crew has closed two lanes of traffic on 9th Avenue in order to jack-hammer, causing traffic to block a fire-truck, who's wailing siren is upsetting a big dog on the sidewalk, who is barking ceaselessly. All this commotion is angering the New Jersey commuters making their way to the Lincoln tu...

. You know, Jake, you were digging up and bumping those old threads I'm subscribed to somewhat regularly the last few months (which, of course, sends me an email every time), it all seemed too coincidental.

You're embellishing the facts and dodging the circumstance when this took place. During the 2004 election I had posted some disagreements with you about politics, and to retaliate you began modifying your PHP to strip out the "." at the end of my posts. So I switched to "," then ...
