My friend and I have started a podcast about policies (public, private, or otherwise) with interesting consequences. Each episode we look back at a past policy and and then rampantly speculate about a current policy change. He is hilarious, I occasionally say something mildly amusing, and in general we have loads of nerdy fun. iTunes. RSS. Episodes: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 [more inside]

This site came about after a friend attempted to eat 6 Arby's roast beef sandwiches in an hour, on a dare.

In a nutshell, SpitShake lets you create a free, customizable contract that you can print out for everyone involved to sign. [more inside]

Years in the making, my first novel Nothingness is finally available as an e-book on Smashwords. It's a darkly comic satire on America drowning in delusion.

I made a music video envisioning Mitt Romney as a rapper named R Money who likes to rap about how wealthy he is. There is an interesting synchronicity between some aspects of hip hop culture and wealthy media figures like Donald Trump and Mitt Romney that make for a funny juxtaposition, I think. [more inside]

When I was a child, I hated all cooked vegetables, and a good number of raw ones. But the only recourse I had was to not eat them, and try to finagle my way into somehow getting dessert without eating them. But now that I'm older, it's personal. I still hate them. And I'm going ad hominem on all their asses.

For the story of why I decided to write the book, you can read my guest post at the New York Times Motherlode blog. [more inside]
Our three year old just figured out how to use our digital camera and steals it while we aren't looking. These are his pictures. Hipsterized. I ran them through PicYou, and named them as pretentiously as possible. The outcome is more interesting and funny than I could've imagined.
