Day 15 of NBM: Rainy Day Swag

It was a super-rainy Bike to Work Day today, so I didn’t get the kind of massive haul that’ I’ve gotten the last two years (2013 and 2014). I stopped at only 3 of the 10 stations I’d planned on, because I feel the need to go much slower in the rain and slowly hitting […]

15 Minutes of Undivided Attention to Kim Kardashian (Sort of)

I’ve never given Kim Kardashian much thought, or any of the Kardashians, for that matter.

Oh no, it’s the 15th, and I’ve just discovered the Planksgiving Challenge! That’s all right: I’ve actually been planking pretty much every day for the last few weeks anyway. I call it the “wake and plank” approach: as soon as my alarm goes off, I roll out of bed onto the floor and do four […]

Hey, it’s the 15th: new Night Vale post!

The #1 podcast on iTunes right now is Welcome to Night Vale, an utterly compelling fictional community radio station’s broadcast about the town of Night Vale, a Tim-Burtonesque town in the desert where hooded figures roam the dog park (no dogs allowed) and a glowing cloud rains dead small mammals upon the populace, then becomes […]

15 Reasons Jean Ralphio Is the Best

Exciting development: Buzzfeed has a feature listing the 15 Reasons Jean-Ralphio From “Parks & Recreation” Is An Awesome Human Being. However, those are just gifs. To get the whole picture—the full Jean Ralphio experience—you need to see him in ACTION. Here’s the Jean Ralphio supercut (which NBC will not let me embed): Parks and Recreation: […]
