Pearl Jam Web Scavenger Hunt →
Pearl Jam “hid” 9 images that compose the cover of their forthcoming album on the web. The reward for solving the puzzle is a new song from the record and the album cover. This is really cool, even if you don’t love PeeJ.
My landlord left me a voicemail asking if I would be interested in Verizon FIOS. I’ve been waiting for this moment for at least 3 years. In related news, I shaved $40/month from my Time Warner Cable bill by dumping HD-Extra, Cinemax, Starz, and Road Runner Turbo (boost from 10Mbps to 20Mbps).
Flight to LA delayed 5 hours. Luckiy we’re in the amazing JFK JetBlue Terminal 5. Believe the hype.

Adam Yauch (MCA) has cancer →
Luckily the cancer he has is treatable and he should make a full recovery. If you were a jewish boy growing up in NY in the 90s, you probably wanted to be The Beastie Boys at some point. Yeshiva drop-outs, telling their Rabbis and teachers to go fuck themselves, and rapping as well as any non-white group out there. If you hold up License To Ill in the mirror, the letters 3MTA3 say EAT ME. What...
In April, Amanda, Caroline and I drove up to North Haven CT to visit the BustedTees warehouse.

Regarding Palin's rapid departure
arigreenberg: “Nobody suddenly announces a resignation on the Friday evening before a holiday weekend if it’s a positive thing. This isn’t a bid for the presidency. It’s a scandal.” (via marco) This isn’t a scandal or a anything negative at all. Palin’s resignation on July 3rd guarantees her a front page spot on basically every American newspaper on the most America-focused day...
