  1. Same here, but truthfully, I'm a bit let down: this sounds like a re-tread. Not that it's "bad" in an absolute sense, but I expected something new, sonically.
  2. Stir-fry: soy cutlet (cubed), red/green/yellow pepper strips, broccoli, carrots, sugar snap peas, black beans

    Land's End is having a 30% off and free shipping deal, ends tonight. Pretty good deal IMO, since their clothing is decent quality.
  4. This happened to my set, twice. They just don't like sweat. I would just get something cheap.
  5. This is so true of SF coffee snobs.
  6. Too bad Rubicon will most likely be cancelled due to the low ratings.
  7. Anyone going this year? You know you want to, since MC Hammer will be there.

    Boardwalk Empire

    Anyone excited about this show? It's premiering Sunday on HBO. Personally, I love Steve Buscemi, and the premise of the show sounds like the HBO shows that I really love (like The Wire and Deadwood).
  9. Just had an amazing lunch with my co-workers at Brenda's French Soul Food in SF. The beignets are to die for. If you are in SF or the Bay Area, I highly recommend this place.
  10. I find the iPad perfectly adequate for reading e-Books. Granted, I don't read while I'm outside under direct sunlight, so the contrast issue has never really come up for me. In fact, I barely even use iBook to read. I do most of my PDF reading on Stanza, and if I do buy anything, I buy it from Kindle and use the Kindle app on the iPad to read it. I'm sure as a dedicated reading-only device, the Kindle would be better, but I also enjoy the other things I can do on an iPad.
  11. iPhone4, 16G black; now just waiting on AT&T to ship it.
  12. I came into work this Monday morning, only to find out that I have to work this weekend. It's no big deal, except I bought tickets to see Pavement in Chicago the very same weekend months ago. And since I've only been on the job for a week, there is no way I can ask the boss to let me off the hook on this. Fuck!
  13. Check out these presets for HandBrake that does the conversion for you: Optimised Handbrake Presets For Encoding Video For Your New iPad Or iPhone 4 | Lifehacker Australia Very easy to use.
  14. The city shut down the annual Castro Halloween party in 2007 (i think?) because of shooting in the previous year, so I don't know if they will crack down similarly on Pink Party the next year. It's very unfortunate that some people just can't party and have fun in a safe manner and decide to act recklessly. According to most reports, the shooting wasn't homophobic in nature, but brought on by a personal argument.
  15. Signed the least on an apartment in San Francisco in the morning, so now I will have a place to live once I start work. Then, at night, went to the Castro with a bunch of friends to check out Pink Party. There was a giant crowd, and everything was going fine, until I heard multiple gunshots about 200 yards away from my group, on the corner of Market and Castro. Cops and ambulances rushed in, dispersed the crowd, and closed off the area. Turns out multiple people were shot, condition and motives unknown. All in all, a very exciting day
  16. Living in Hyde Park, where we have a Giordano's, an Edwardo's, and Medici's, I have to say that I'm partial towards Edwardo's, because they put less cheese in their stuffed pies. Giordano's drown their pies in cheese, and I can't stomach it after just one slice.
  17. Thanks Al (and also Vicky too). I've got a job with the Department of Justice in July in their San Fran office. So I might make a Bay Area meet in the future
  18. I spent the whole day finishing up my final, last paper at the University of Chicago. And having turned in my thesis a week ago, that makes me done with M.A. It has been a taxing year, in terms of intellectual stimulation, but it was all worth it. Now I'm just feeling dazed and not sure what to do with myself.
  19. Umm, I would not pack those winter clothes. It has been hot and humid (the humidity is terrible, but then again, I'm from CA), in the 80s with 70% humidity. I wouldn't worry too much about being cold.
  20. The whole soft-loud, tension-release dynamic of their music is amplified by about 100 times live, as compared to the record. And those guys know how to play: they are equally good during the finess/delicate parts as they are at unleashing the sonic assault. They are able to stop and shift gears on a dime, and damn if they don't pull it off.
  21. The Japanese post-rock band.
  22. Just came back from a MONO show at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. Holy fuck they are amazing live, so much better than their albums.
  23. Has anyone used iAnnotate for the iPad? Most of my school readings are journal articles in PDF, and it would be great to annotate them.
