The Mission now has an upscale brew pub.  And even better, it has a kitchen that's open to 1AM seven days a week.  The Monk's Kettle is not a big place.  There are 8-10 booths along the side of the space with high walls for lots of privacy, and a gorgeous wooden bar.  The burgers are fantastic.  The beer selection is staggering - five different brown ales and tens of Belgian ales.  This is a great addition to the neighborhood.

These things are good for one thing and one thing only - enforcing Darwinian laws to help keep the human race at least as intelligent as a chimpanzee.

I love organic cotton fabric. Gaiam is one of my favorite places to shop.

People still use these things?

Children eat the magnets, which stick together in their intestines. Some have died. Many have gone to the hospital in great pain.

Believe it or not I had one of these in Australia and it is relatively safe to use. They make short work of hills. The safety comes from the fact that the blade does not move fast enough to make the mower hover more than a couple of inches off the ground - no higher than the lift on a regular lawnmower.

These things are being recalled all the time. Kids choke on the strings. Not for children under the age of nine.

Most "sticky yoga mats" are made with phthalates, which are terrible for the environment. Better go with a natural rubber mat or some other material.

The hot water heater of the future is here. I just wish it didn't cost ten grand.

A beast on the glass. Reminds me a lot of Big Baby with his strength plus athleticism.  I wouldn't want to have to try and box this man out.

I met a couple of writers from SEO Chicks at Pubcon, and they're pretty sharp.  SEO Chicks is a pro blog - well written articles, lots of photos, and news and views from around SEO - both UK and US.

I also think it's so cool that girls blog.

(just kidding SEO Chicks...)

I'm always hesitant to put new songs on a list of favorites, because there's no way to tell if they're going to stand the test of time.  However, this is a catchy tune.  Look for Vampire Weekend's first full length release in January.

This is one of those extended stay kinds of places.  It's in my neighborhood, and I always thought it was one of those flop house places that homeless folks splurge on every once in a while.  It's actually way nicer than though.  It's very clean, and the whole place reeks of fabuloso.  

There's a little restaurant downstairs that does room service, and the whole place is clean, modern, and sunny.  They have shared bathroom and private bathroom rooms.

The best part about the place is the location.  It's right in the middle of the Mission's great nightlife and restaurant scene, and just two blocks from Bart (the Subway). It's cheap, clean, and a good place to stay at if you're in the process of looking for something more permanent.

This was about as pleasant as a trip to the dentist could be.  The office is very clean, and the staff all smiled a ton and were really friendly.  R&B; is the preferred music if this office, and you haven't lived until you've had Dr. Terry fill a cavity while singing along to Kool and the Gang's Lady's Night.  Seriously, this is my favorite dentist that I've ever been to.

I have a lot of respect for Plenty of Fish. They put up massive traffic numbers, with basically one employee. They never took outside investment, but have been able to build a very good business.

Peroni's a decent beer, and I'll happily drink it if I'm on somebody else's dime.  I'm not sure if it's good enough to pay $5-$6 per bottle in a bar though.  In terms of Italian beers, I prefer Moretti.

I love this Scotch.

This guy was a monster in the soft rock scene - I think everybody's parents probably have a record or two of Dan Fogelberg's. His song "Old Lang Syne" in which he meets up with an ex girlfriend on Christmas Eve who had dropped him to marry an architect, and they drink a six pack in the car - actually is kind of touching. Gotta love the soft rock. As an aside, 56 is way to young to be dying these days... gentleman, go get yourselves a prostate check up.

I added the track.  Get pumped up everybody.

I find this video pretty chilling.  6 years of life flowing by in a few minutes.  Yes, we're all going to die.

I messed around with one of these phones, and it's pretty feature rich.  The Voyager doesn't have the iPhone's gorgeous interface, but it's packed with features.  The best things about it: it has a qwerty keyboard AND a touch screen panel.  Of course it has a camera, and is also intergrated with Verizon VCast meaning that it's really easy to watch videos.

The web browsing experience isn't great, as it's WAP.  I decided to hold off on buying this phone, as it's a first release (and first releases are always buggy), and the new Motorola Q just knocked my socks off.

The second generation Q is way, WAY better than the first. I debated long and hard between the Q and the new Verizon Voyager, besides deciding on the new Q.

I had previously owned the older, silver Q. It was a decent phone, but was terribly buggy. It locked up all the time, the navigation was slow, and I routinely had to pop the battery out to get it moving.

All of these problems have been fixed on the Q. It's as thin as ever, but has a more durable design. There's an easier way to lock the keyboard to prevent your pocket from making unintended calls. And there's still the qwerty keybord, camera, and easy email functionality. Also, the browser is far better than the Voyager, because it's not WAP. It's still early - I've only had the new Q for a couple of weeks, but so far, I couldn't be happier with it.

This is an intense movie, and is more than a little scary. I'm a big fan of Will Smith, and I thought he was solid as the last man standing in a zombie infested New York. The movie has some just incredible scenes in the empty streets of New York. I found myself feeling his character's loneliness and frustration as the movie went on.

The storyline goes something like this. Believing she has discovered a cure for cancer, a doctor unleashes a terrible virus on humanity. Those infected become rabid, and the virus spreads through air (as well as through human contact). Smith is a scientist / soldier who is one of the small percentage of humans naturally immune from the virus. Even as society falls around him, he continues to work on a cure to the virus from a home lab in New York.

There are a couple of unlikely plot twists, but if you can get past those, it's a hell of a movie. Definitely in the same league as 28 Days, and maybe a little better.

Update: Here's an excellent I am Legend review from Wired.

Obama is surging a bit right now. His supporters are far more passionate than Clinton's (who seem more resigned to Clinton's inevitability than in love with her as a candidate), and we shouldn't underestimate the impact of having Oprah endorsing his campaign. While Hillary comes off as opportunistic and mean, Obama seems to genuinely inspire people. Whether this is enough to overcome his lack of experience to bring home the Democratic nomination remains to be seen.

I believe that the winner of the Democratic nomination will (deservedly) be our next President. After the spending, and torture, and incompetence, and war, and corruption of the current administration, my sense is that a functioning democracy such as ours will decide to give the other party a chance.

*Update* Isiah has utterly wrecked one of the storied franchises in the NBA.  And the carnage is long term - with fat, lazy, overpaid, and underperforming players signed on for years.  I don't see this being fixable any time soon.  The way I see it, the Knicks have exactly four players who play hard: David Lee, Nate Robinson (who's 5'9"), Mardy Collins (who is only a borderline nba talent) and Renaldo Balkman (who is a 6'5" power forward).  This is problematic.*

Original Comment: Wow, when you have the biggest payroll in basketball and one of the worst teams, something is seriously going wrong.

You have to look at two places - who's building the team, and who's coaching it. Of course players may be underperforming, but the GM is the guy that hired those players.

And as Larry Brown is coaching it, I don't think the problem is there.

The joke going around now is that the lady who is suing Thomas for sexual harassment asked for $2M to drop the case. Thomas declined, and instead offered $30M over six years.
