Of those 2,200 bands, I listened all the way through at least one song of 1,000 of ’em. Of all those, these are […]

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Wrote this on the plane this morning Like a 21st-century Genghis, Dominate, Slaying any other smells that dare approach the nose. The host, inured to the onslaught by years of abuse, probably.

My experience getting audited by the IRS, and my lessons learned

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

On playing more chess

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

So, I’ve been playing a lot more chess lately. Now that I’m playing more, I’m more comfortable taking risks, and I’m losing more, and I’m winning more too. [ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | […]

The impromptu Avett Brothers haiku ticket contest I launched on craigslist

Monday, April 26th, 2010

I had a ticket to Wednesday’s Avett Brothers show at the Boulder Theater. I couldn’t go, and so I went to craigslist to sell the ticket. I didn’t want to sell it to the first person to email me … that’s boring. So I wrote this in the post: “If you want the ticket, send […]
