Two things I know something about,

…and saw Oliver Quinn perform a few songs. Pretty great. You should check him out.

You should also check out the gigantic urinal in Bar Lubitsch’s men’s room if you ever get the chance. It’s enormous.

It’s seriously like peeing into an open refrigerator.

I did that once,

This announcement was a little hush-hush for a time, but I can now proudly announce that I am a regular contributor for the new website GeekWeek!

GeekWeek is the project of writer/producer Jeff Katz, and I’m really honored to be included in the family of writers he has on board. The site is your one-stop nerd shop for everything from movies and music to video games and sports. It’s kind of like a few other breaking-news sites out there, but without all of the handouts and payoffs!

I’ve often said that everyone is a geek about something. Personally, I’m a geek for the Muppets, Disney theme parks, and serial killers. But no matter what you’re a geek about, you’ll be able to find up-to-date news on those geeky obsessions at GeekWeek.

Check it out here.

And bookmark it, folks! And keep an eye out for my posts! And be sure to comment on my articles so Jeff knows people are reading them! Exclamation points!

Geeks are the new jocks,

PS: I write these posts mainly because I’m honestly interested in hearing what other music people are listening to. If I come across something that sounds cool, or if it’s something I’m not familiar with, I do seek it out. So please, spread your musical knowledge. This is how new favorite bands and albums are discovered.

…are these five albums:

1) Ween’s “White Pepper”

2) Charlie Haden’s “Nocturne″

3) Vic Ruggiero’s “Understanding New Jersey/Living In Sin”

4) Boss Hog’s “Whiteout”

5) The Chemical Brothers’ “Brother’s Gonna Work It Out”

And today you’re listening to…?

A lot of “white” lately,

…are these five albums:

1) Disc Two Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ “White Lunar”

2) DJ Shadow’s “The Outsider″

3) Nirvana’s “Sliver: The Best of the Box”

Rocking it,
