Funny: Ted Cruz's Face


The distaste for Cruz even extends beyond the US: Germans say Backpfeifengesicht, meaning "a face in need of a good punch.”


“Ever since I was a child, I have had a weaselly, piece-of-shit face that you can’t help but want to hit, and that’s never changed—how many other candidates on this stage can say that?” said Cruz, adding that oftentimes when he looks in the mirror, even he wants to drive a screwdriver through his eyes so he never has to see his stupid, boxy head and waggling, doughy chin ever again. “Let me be clear: When voters look at my shit-eating, smug-as-fuck smirk, they can’t help but want to wipe it off by grabbing me by my waxy hair and smashing my face repeatedly into a tabletop. I believe that’s something every American can agree on.” At press time, Cruz’s explanation was cut off by Donald Trump loudly claiming that none of the other candidates’ faces could even come close to how leathery and enraging his is.

Found Coolness: Centriphone


Nicolas Vuignier 100% shot this video with his iPhone 6 and some string and almost two years of tinkering and tweaking he finally achieved the result he was looking for.  If the result he was looking for was awesomeness, he succeeded.

The Cali' Experience: The Next Phase (The Cannery)



Is this the place to put down our roots?


Homes have gotten a little more expensive since this video was made but the info on the community is still pertinent.


Here we go again!


This video shows a lot of what I have grown to like about Davis.


I run through this neighborhood whenever I am not working and it is still there and so much more mature.  Homes in this neighborhood rarely come up for sale, maybe the cannery will be similar in the future.

Funny: Obama Compiles Shortlist Of Gay, Transsexual Abortion Doctors To Replace Scalia (The Onion)


Obama Compiles Shortlist Of Gay, Transsexual Abortion Doctors To Replace Scalia

“These are all exemplary candidates with strong homosexual values and proven records of performing partial-birth abortions, but am I missing anyone?” Obama reportedly asked himself while reviewing his list of queer, gender-nonconforming, feminist Planned Parenthood employees, all of whom were also said to be black immigrants.

Music: In Defense of the CD (Rolling Stone)


I never got rid of my CDs, though they have been sitting in a non-air conditioned storage unit for the last three summers in Vacaville where it can sometimes hit 110+ degrees (low humidity though) and could likely be damaged I'll find out at some point.  Just reading this article has by rolling stone has made me want to go get them today.

In Defense of the CD


"I know it sounds insane at this point in time, but it wasn't that long ago – two decades, more or less – that many of us actually lauded the arrival of those shiny round discs. Our vinyl was growing scratchy and warped, and cassettes, for all their portability, had serious audio flaws and could break easily. Those gleaming sonic coasters weren't just smaller than LPs; they made music old and new sound clear and clean. Proud anti-digital warrior Neil Young will disagree, but it was time for an audio upgrade, and what we heard – clarity of sound, separation of instruments – was damn impressive in those early CD days."

"Right now, nobody seems to remember any of those upshots. In fact, people don't seem to be just tired of the CD; it feels as if they're actively calling for its demise. When vinyl began dying off in the early Nineties, many people, me included, mourned its passing on many levels. But we didn't dance in the streets that it was in its death throes, the way so many seem to be doing these days with the CD. A friend recently called to ask what he should do with his shelves of discs, since many of his friends were strongly urging him to chuck them. That's right: People were actually saying he should throw his CDs in the garbage. (You can recycle them, you know.)"

Current Events: Groundhog Day (Bill Murray Chekhov Speech)


"When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter. From Punxsutawney, it's Phil Connors, so long."
