I miss Jay Leno, so I made a collage of him shaking hands with Robert Smith, Stephen Malkmus, Alex Chilton and Beck.
"Get the laughs, but follow the rules," is the 1st thing I say to myself before getting out of bed every morning.
I want to dedicate this post to all my teachers who said I’d never be a footnote in a Mudhoney biography.
I called a real estate agent today to ask about a listing, and she said, “Just come by our office. We’re located on Hillhurst, across the street from where Dumb Starbucks used to be.”
That made my day. R.I.P. Dumb Starbucks.
The NY Times surveyed bartenders to learn their slang. Always wondered why I heard, “The B.I.B. is here” every time I walked into McManus.

When I was watching the Super Bowl last night, I noticed a familiar face on the Seahawks sideline: my sophomore-year high school PE teacher, Mr. McPherson. He’s now the tight ends coach for Seattle.
Mr. McPherson taught high school PE (and English and Algebra) for only one year in 1996-97 before becoming an NFL coach. As you can imagine, he was a pretty intense PE teacher. When we’d run the mile, he’d run with the class and was in far better shape any of us. He’d lap me a couple of times and would always shout, “C’MON SCORDELIS!” as he passed me.
Even though I’m a diehard 49ers fan and despise the Seahawks, I’m happy that Mr. McPherson has a Super Bowl ring.
