“This is not a love letter to the Internet. The Internet is a tool. This is a love letter to the people who have learned to use that tool. You have made my life so wonderfully full that I’m fit to burst.” - Slackmistress (my wife, who I met on the internet)

September 26th will now always be the day we found out that Jon Wurster lost that awesome salmon pink shirt. We must never forget the shirt or where we were on this day. Jon Wurster’s diary of Superchunk’s Majesty Shredding tour is required reading. Check it out here.
The Last Time
The last time I spoke to my father was just over a year ago on a Sunday afternoon. When I called him after the Jets beat the Patriots (by the score he had predicted) we did not know that it would be the last time we’d speak but I couldn’t have hoped for a better last conversation. After discussing the game we ended on this note: “It’s too bad you’re not here dad,...

I Can See How This Looked Worse Than It Was
For a brief time my father lived in a very small house, across the street from my elementary school. The house was barely visible through the trees from the asphalt of the playground but from the top of the slide I could see the his roof.

From The Onion AV Club’s review of $#*! My Dad Says: I have always believed that “Shit My Dad Says” is more fiction than reality so I’ve never been a fan of it. That said I felt there was a chance, however slim, to make a halfway decent show out of it. Maybe there is but I don’t think that has happened. I better get to work on the rewrite of my pilot based on Daisy...
People You May Know
Last week my first girlfriend showed up in my “People You May Know” section on Facebook. She and I had all of the firsts that come along with being young and in love including first bitter breakup which happened 16 years ago. We swore we’d still remain friends, and we did…at least in the sense that we’d periodically get back together if we suspected the other was...
