brooklynmutt: This afternoon Arlen Specter (R-Pennsylvania) announced he is joining the Wu-Tang Clan, a prominent, loosely organized group of hardcore rappers that first formed in the early ’90s. At a press conference with all 9 original members, including the RZA, GZA (pronounced “Rizza” and “Jizza”) and Method Man, a visibly disoriented Specter read from a prepared statement: “My life had got...

mikehudack: blip.tv now has 73% as many viewers in the United States as Hulu, even after their Super Bowl commercial and months-long television campaign. We both dipped in March slightly (fewer days) and grew fairly significantly in April. We’re ranked #81 on the Internet by Quantcast, they’re ranked #49. We’re anticipating that our traffic will probably dip down a bit in May, and then...
Gary Vee was just on TV at the NFL draft
atmanatee: winstonwolfe: He looked like had just taken a sip of two buck chuck after paying $100 for it. Classic. Congratulations NY! You may have just added another chapter to this youtube video, otherwise known as the funniest yet saddest sports compilation ESPN has ever done for a draft. Seriously, must watch stuff: “Everyone said that if Marino was around at that time, they’d take...
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that...– Churchill
At least I got in a good day of fishing earlier.
I pretty much knew that the weather was going to be awesome this weekend but had to make the smart business decision to travel, so as to to close a project that will allow me to have the Summer off. That’s right. The. Summer. Off. I’ll sacrifice 5 days for 3 months anytime. Thats what they call a trade of value. Plus who knew the last weekend of April would be warmer in NYC than FLA??

A tumblr question.
biteofpythias: Maybe this can be topher’s first project? Is it just me, or… when i reblog on my iphone and the existing post comes up in the little text box it unfortunately puts my cursor right near the top of the post instead of down at the bottom. This means that to follow proper reblogetiquette i have to do an annoying series of return/backspace steps to get my cursor down to the bottom of...

4/24/08, the day I decided my life was juuuust boring enough that I needed to start an uninspired blog. I’ll have to dig up some of the old emails & reblogs I received that day and write more about them later. Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty & I started my blog without knowing the first thing about the Tumblr community. Yet somehow, I managed to pick the most...

Obama plans prime-time news conference Wednesday →
herheadhurts: jaimeleighfairbrother: shorterexcerpts: Another quote: “Wednesday’s news conference will be Obama’s third. At the current pace, he is on track to hold one a month.” Look, I’m all for more openness and transparency from government. But stop pre-empting good TV shows. Why not do this on Tuesday? There’s nothing good on that night (though I am apparently in the minority that...

Reason #1001 why the movie version of "Moneyball"...
Rick Peterson, former Mets & A’s pitching coach, will play himself. Really? Really. BTW, the first thousand reasons all have to do with Brad Pitt playing the lead role, as Billy Beane, in Steven Soderbergh’s adaptation of the Michael Lewis book.
I don't care what side you're on
tanya77: spytap: justin: Making fun of people protesting is about as un-American as you can be. I don’t agree, I think it’s just the sort of free speech that makes America what it is. When the God Hates Fags people protest, I should absolutely be allowed to make fun, mock, and otherwise make my derision for their cause known. The ability to protest isn’t the protection of the idea any more...

…he asks how you’re doing & you just casually mention that you have a stiff neck from falling asleep the wrong way on the couch(fuckin’ Red Sox west coast trip). Nothing more is mentioned of it until you go to walk out & he gives you a scrip for Soma. Now my neck is fine but I’m having a hard time walking a straight line.
