livin' the dream
Great tea (lots of organics, etc.), decent prices (better than Tea Chai Te), friendly staff, and an awesome atmosphere--love it!
I know a (former) photojournalist who said that EVERY pj with whom they worked is now a wedding photographer. That's tragic, in a sense, and yet I think that for any given moment, there are now probably more "breaking news" photos taken and distributed than ever before. That's rough for the photographers but, all in all, a net gain. True, this gain isn't realized in the same way with journalism (where storytelling skill, bias, insider knowledge, etc. all come to bear upon the value of a journalistic piece) but there, too, the internet and some innovative media groups are still coming up with ideas. And also, I take some amount of solace in results and trends such as The Economist recently observed in a special feature on the state of reporting and news in the world: http://www.economist.com/node/18904136
Still, sorry to hear about the tough times at the WW.
Pfffft. Our boy Dan has much bigger biceps than that.
Wait, why the hell are the beanbag shotguns even able to fire not-beanbag rounds!? That seems like a supremely stupid design ...as this mind-blowing situation demonstrates.
@Ginny, I'm not sure if this is as good as the version WSH posted, here's one I found
Well, it's nice to see that Marissa has found a subject about which she is so passionate that she continues to blog on it ...at the old alt-weekly where she formerly worked. errr... interned. That's commitment. ...or a Labor Dept. violation.
@WSM: to your point, I say, "hasta la vista, buttfucker!"
Remember The Man Show on Comedy Central? Adam Carolla & Jimmy Kimmel objectifying women, fart jokes, midgets, etc.?
Anyway, they had a segment once where they pitched a fitness fad: The Don't Eat So Damn Much Diet. ...which was, I think, the most trenchant observation to come from that show.
Here we have a corollary: if you didn't eat so damn much you wouldn't have to stand in a field, bending one way or another while forcing laughter.
"A Twinkie is HOW many minutes of making an ass out of myself while trying to laugh? Fuck, nevermind.
Pass the kale."
Also, Judge Hudson owns a stake in a consulting firm that worked to thwart healthcare reform. Where are all the people who rabidly complained about judicial bias when it came out that Judge Walker was gay? Or the people who deemed Sotomayor incapable of delivering verdicts because she's proud to be a Latina.
