I subscribe to a fantastically good podcast called the Sound of Young America by Jesse Thorn (podcast feed, iTunes subscription, archive).  Jesse posted a link on his blog at MaximumFun.org to a great interview Bill Moyers conducted with John Stewart.  It is quite long (33+ minutes) but it’s well worth it.  If you have a […]

Posted by: Dave In: Blog|Design

I got a little bored with the old look of the site and decided to switch to a more text-focused version. I’m not sure if this is any better or worse. What do you all think? [poll=3]

More blaspheming from Dr. Ding

Posted by: Dave In: Blog|Humor

Click here to read Dr Ding’s newest post. Jesus is coming, look busy. Seriously. I have no idea if/when Jesus is or isn’t arriving. Incidentally, I always picture him in old Birkenstock sandals and some sort of hemp dress getting laughed off the planet due to his poor fashion choices, lack of permanent address, and […]

NYC subway map in smell-o-vision

Posted by: Dave In: Blog|Travel|Weird

Gawker collected, processed and posted smells from travelers in the NYC subway system into a google map.  The next time you are in NYC wondering if that smell was a combination of poop, corndog, armpit and cabbage, you can pull up the smell map and confirm (or even contribute to the map).  From the site: […]

Being in the flow

Posted by: Dave In: Blog|Productivity

What does it mean to be “in the flow” when you’re working or creating or writing or whatever? Here’s an article by Michael Buffington about being in the flow. Good stuff. -Dave


  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?
  • Kevin David Anderson: check out our other wreaths at: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150452725264516.391111.360128594515&type=3
  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
