Mini Blog: Static Electricity

I was wearing headphones when I took off my jacket. Let’s just say I now know what static electricity sounds like and it ain’t pretty.

    Whew – good thing you changed to these one or two sentence blogs so you can still go a week without blogging!

Mini Blog: Synchronicity

Synchronicity: the hopelessness I feel watching the Mavericks lose by 24 today mirrors the same sentiment I have for this project I’m working on in my office at 3:38 on a Sunday afternoon.

Mini Blog: First Zogball Game

Joined another season of Zog 3-on-3 basketball and just had my first game today. Somehow, having two 5’8″ girls who played high school and college basketball on your team makes things a lot easier.

Ranking The Beatles

The CEO of SteverOnline sent me an interesting article about a writer attempting to do the impossible and rank all of The Beatles songs in order of worst to best. There are 187 of them, so the thing is super long (hell, I’m only on the second of twenty pages) but I find it absolutely fascinating. I also find the majority of his decision wrong!

So I’ve decided to do something about it! That’s right, for my next feature I shall perform the insane and rank all of The Beatles songs from least to greatest! To make such a grand scheme more manageble, I have simplified the plan to these steps:

  1. Only focus on Beatles-penned songs (ie: no covers!)
  2. Go by just the songs appearing on the UK Beatles discography, the two Past Masters albums (which collect the non-album singles and B-Sides) and the three Anthology albums
  3. Go album by album and rank the songs in order of preference
  4. Then, working from the bottom of each of these ranked album lists, figure out which song I like least
  5. Conquer the world!

If anyone wants to participate feel absolutely free to do so. You don’t even have to rank every song – just the ones you like. But that would be lame!

Mini Blog: Obama Fireworks

I woke up to fireworks going off. I get the feeling people are happy Obama’s about to become president.

Mini Blog: Gangsta’s Paradise Lyrics

Finally broke down and looked up the actual lyrics to Gangsta’s Paradise. Some of the shit Coolio has been saying in my mind for a over a decade really didn’t make any sense.

Mini Blog: Freezing NYC

I love living in New York City. I hate cold weather. Somehow these haven’t really conflicted. Still, feels like 4 degrees here today …

Mini Blog: New Basketball Stats Book

In case it wasn’t already evident, I am a hardcore basketball fan. I am super excited to have just received an old, yellowed, 400-page book published in 1989 on basketball stats. People, it contains stats from the little-known pre-NBA leagues!!

Mini Blog: Blog Typos

I’ve been recently going through my 2008 posts to pick out the best and worst ones. Damn, there are a shitload of typos.
