must see: american-the bill hicks story

i’m just gonna go right ahead and say it: bill hicks is definitely one of the top 5 comics of all time. and if you don’t agree, well, at least you’ll have george bush and all your hannah montana records to keep you totally fucked. no wonder fucking denis leary stole EVERYTHING from bill. i […]

soundtrack to your sun-soaked summer: stephen orsak

sweet merciful crap, i love me some summer. but because we here in austin have been so “blessed” with crazy humidity lately, well, i love me some A/C even more. and this ain’t even the hot times yet! but fear not, fellow worshippers of the sun disc: local wunderkind stephen orsak makes the music that […]

do you really know what you eat? : shim recommends farmers’ markets

this blog tends to be all free and cheeky and loosey goosey, so i really hate to get all “serious” on you peeps but, damn, everybody should have access to good, clean food. case and point, i have been putting off posting this for a long fucking time but my conscience has got the best […]

tang dynasty poetry: li pai and tu fu

wtf?! chinese poetry? no, i haven’t been drinking, friends. if ever there was suitable reading material while carelessly floating atop an inner tube at one of our many swimming holes, this is very much it. try that with an ipad. who the shit is li pai? (or li po, don’t get me started…). well, cool […]

insatiable gear lust: pmc MB2S-XBD-A

sweet mother of pearl! whilst on a recent trip to the EU, friends kept telling me about the stellar beers of ze deutschland, and then i heard about their plentiful, world class art museums, all cheap and outstanding. so being a total sucker for cheap and amazing and since getting there from la france was […]

texas-state of the arts: houston

ok, so if austin and houston were in a cage match, my money would be all on austin: we gots the better weather, we gots the loosey-lefty tolerance (ok, we don’t got the jobs, but jeebus they’re 2. 5 mil and we’re 800 thou), we gots the beautiful natch landscape with actual water, we don’t […]

bangin’ for your buck, surround processor part 2: onkyo

i’m not gonna get all specs and white papers and lab measurements on this site. nope. thankfully for me, those days are over; i did my time in that hell, so all you will hear here is one man’s opinion. the stuff i recommend is somewhat based on experience running the numbers, but mostly on […]

sxsw: best of the lesser knowns part 7: titus andronicus

i remember my first festivus. the feats of strength went well, cuz i’d been secretly working out. the airing of grievances, however, were not met with much december 23rd cheer. maybe it was my cadence, maybe it was my timing, or maybe it was because i had a cruel and unusually cruel step-monster that i […]

sxsw: best of the lesser knowns part 6: sex worker

holy shit, it’s monday morning. already. you’re still a wee bit drunk (ok, a lot drunk), you’ve used up all your excuses with your boss, no sick days left, he suspects you of having an affair with his wife (wink wink), and you have to be into work in just under 20 mins. what sounds […]

sxsw->best of the lesser knowns part 1: hauschka

i am embarrassed to admit that at one point in my life, i was a janitor. yeah, it sucked hard, but i liked to eat food and have somewhere to sleep that didn’t reek of piss and feet. but suck as it did, one of the worst parts of the job—worse than scrubbing someone else’s […]
