I always appreciated that her first lady issue was reading.

Weather Underground is my favorite.

A friend of mine has been flirting with joining Al Pieda, I've urged him to stay out of it but he seems to be sinking deeper into the bowels of the internet.

I don't know if you realized that this is a story from three years ago. It's interesting all the same.

1. A coloring book. I'm working on a picture of some giraffes with my daughter. They are psychedelic giraffes with various color schemes.

2. I hate pets in my games. One of the players in our table top game is playing an awakened dog ranger, he is doing a good job so far.

3. False, it's Red Dawn.

Good luck.

I know some people who worked for that retail company and didn't seem to like it very much.

Neither stayed more than a year.

Experiences may vary.

I'd guess that the service would serve as many people that already owned a cool watch or two as much as it would serve the guy who is looking for status. A watch enthusiast might just enjoy sorting a few different watches over the course of a year.

No but I don't wear jewelry with the exception of my mostly not worn wedding ring.

I don't have any problem with a 40k watch.

I'm sure plenty of people would pony up for a rotating watch rental service.

Their head curator David Lee looks like the watch equivalent of the Portland barista parody. I'm positive I wouldn't rent a watch from him, which I suppose is a shitty thing to say about a guy I don't know but there it is.

A Black friend is reading the Bell Curve right now. Very bright guy. He's an accountant who writes a lot of poetry and has written a few strange ass plays. He's grew up in a Chicago housing project and now works on some of the biggest private development projects in the city. Rabid liberitatian but I I'm still fond of him.

Any way he's a man who has a broad perspective on life and his summery of the Bell Curve is that it seems plausable and well thought out. He admits to knowing little about genetics. I thought it interesting that he took it that way with all the fury I've heard over that book.

It's a strange day when Francis is reading The Bell Curve and my friend Paul is reading Mein Kamph both sitting across from each other on the shop couches, everyone feeling very safe to engage in some real talk. I'm probably on some kind of list, better the FBI than the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The Guardian was still kissing Aung San Su Chi's ass as late as 2016, after she had already made it pretty clear that she wasn't going to get into the way of any genocides. How does the Guardian sleep at night?

What irks me is that I don't use Facebook but they have a file on me because everyone I know uses it and Facebook has their contacts.

I got to see John Maus earlier in the year.

He hasn't toured in seven years or so. My wife wanted to get tickets to see him in New York and I just can't hack that kind of plane ride to see a show so I was glad he came to town.

I missed The Residents who I've seen before but I thought my wife would dig it. A friend of mine worked security at the venue they were going to be at and he told me he'd get me in so I didn't buy tickets. He quit a few weeks before the show. Ah well.

I should see if Shellac is coming to town any time soon, they usually play the best show I'll see all year.
