Incubus To Go On Hiatus →
(via:sophiniesom:theoisjonesing) for some reason this only makes me somewhat upset. i mean these guys have been around pretty consistently since i was in fucking 6th grade. so a hiatus for them is seemingly a break to me. i love this band still, but they seriously are one of the only bands who can say they want a break and deserve it. Weird. I was just thinking about Incubus today and...
Slate.com: On Catchphrases →
An article that is equal parts interesting and annoying. I’ve never seen anyone break down the increasing use of catchphrases, and it reminds me of how incredibly irritating we can get with phrase repitition. If I could go back in time and hear a 10th grade version of me, within ten minutes I’d be forced to kick my own ass.

Dodgers Win Despite Not Recording A Hit →
Most people regard baseball as the most boring of the major sports, and tonight’s Dodger game was by all means a snoozefest. However, the Dodgers were victorious in one of the strangest games I’ve ever seen. With the way they’ve been playing of late, I’ll take a win any way they can get it. To make things more interesting, the Dodgers decided to do it in one of the most...
Words That I Find Funny
Word: Moist Why: I think my amusement with this word started back in high school, and more specifically with my friend Zoe. Being arguably my closest female friend back in those days, Zoe was no stranger to crude and disgusting behavior. In fact, she could definitely hold her own with me and the rest of the guys in our group of friends. But despite being able to put up with endless jokes and...
Larry David has perfected the funny asshole act. There’s no one else who can be a tactless prick yet simultaneously hilarious like him. For that, he will forever be in my personal comedy Hall-of-Fame. Really though, who else can do something for a good cause, yet be an insensitive dick that also happens to be painfully hysterical?
Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to...– William Ockham. You’ve probably used his razor. (via topherchris) Great quote. I try to follow this advice, but sometimes I can’t overcome my tendency to talk way too much. Though, I could see the transition working out smoother, easier and more precise once they come out with...
marco: People who have actually met Jakob will recognize that this is a shame. If I hadn’t met him before, I can’t guarantee that I wouldn’t have joined in the mockery and insults. I’ve probably made a lot of bad judgments of people in the past based on limited, misleading views of them from their online content. People have judged me similarly. It’s inevitable. Just like IMs and SMS are...

But, I just read the NYTimes op-ed by Jerry Seinfeld and this quote really caught my eye. Having watched tons of George...

What's That Cable For Again?
I can’t even begin to explain how frustrating it is that I have to replace my computer’s motherboard because three capacitors decided to blow up. I still can’t figure out how I possibly built this thing myself because just looking inside of it causes confusion and mini anxiety attacks. I’m almost certain that I’ll either break something, or I’m going to get...
The weather the past couple of days has gone far enough beyond the comfortable range typical of Southern California that it’s affecting most people’s behavior. Personally, I’ve been complaining more than usual and eating an obscene amount of ice cream. Others may shower multiple times in a day, drink smoothies or shakes, spend more time near fans and air conditioners, or simply...

At lunch today, I ordered and paid for two burritos. They gave me three. As happy as free food makes me, I can’t help but wonder if this is karma rewarding me for good deeds, or if I’ll eventually be punished for inadvertently stealing a burrito.

Slate.com article on our online reading habits.
As my buddy Greg once said, “Hiccups are the biggest mystery not worth researching.” The reason I thought of that quote is because I am curently on the tenth minute of a hiccup fit. For the past year or so, I’ve gotten the hiccups whenever I tried to clear my throat. I can’t understand why this happens. Also, it’s left me with the unenviable position of having to...

topherchris: While it allows the security screeners — looking at the images in a separate room — to clearly see the passenger’s sexual organs as well as other details of their bodies, the passenger’s face is blurred, TSA said in a statement on its website. Would people be as upset and opposed to this if the screener was in plain sight and naked? I think not. I think any problems would be...

Wanted: Apple News Reviewer
everythingontheinternetistrue: I’ve glossed over all tumblr posts, rss feeds and tweets about Apple from the last 12 or so hours. I love and use Apple just as much as the next bloke but the sycophantic behaviour by normally rational people gets tiring especially when those who inevitably come down from their own own uber hyped expectations have a dopamine crash with blogged tears and...

onemoretimewithfeeling: If the Tumblr community had their way, Obama would be President, and Steve Jobs would be VP. The consensus seems to be that they can do no wrong. Free Hope and Macbooks for everyone. If that doesn’t win you the Oval Office, I don’t know what will.

I was an awesome baseball player when I was younger. I don’t mean to brag, I’m just stating fact. I was pretty damn good. Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case. In the days I could confidently swing a baseball bat, I could take swings in a batting cage for an entire afternoon and not let a single ball get past me. Today I went for the first time in a couple weeks, and just...

It’s hard to restrain myself from posting Onion articles every single day, but every so often I have to give in and put one up. Today is one of those days. I have a sneaking suspicion that I’ve already seen something similar, but this article was hilarious nonetheless. Note: It helps if you’re a nerd and enjoy video games. Particularly Grand Theft Auto. Another note: I’m...
