I’ve recently taken to cruising through StumbleUpon during my moments of boredom or random down time. It’s not a bad way to see the Internet, really. When I opened my account, I typed in a few categories that I figured would be interesting to me, including the following: “food.” I had no idea that such […]
I love the proliferation of food blogs. There are recipes and posts that cater to every taste, whim, creative impulse, ethical choice, and allergy. There are blogs that give history and context, others that focus on perpetuating an aesthetic, and still others that just care about the nitty-gritty of cooking. It leaves me wondering – […]
One of my favorite things to do at work is to turn on an episode of This American Life, and tune everything else out while I work on whatever task is at hand. As you can probably imagine, this has resulted in my burning through a pretty generous number of the popular podcast, and developing […]

Oh, and what you can wear!
Looking for ways to rake in the pageviews, stir up shitstorms, and generally attract a buttload of viewers to your blog? It’s actually quite simple. Abandon all integrity, ye who enter here: I’m about to lead you down a primrose path of debauched, salacious, Faustian buggery, complete with examples of the stories that will simultaneously […]
