So it's been like ten years in this apartment and we never really moved out of boxes ..we're busy people, it's a big space, we both use it as an office, etc. So finally the solution was just "Here Whelk, here is a blank check, go make the apartment nice. I chose a time period (late 30s-ish) and a layout and then spent a long, long time picking out things and cleaning them and shellacking them - so I give you photos from Project Apartment 1939 Phase One! 1 2 3

My internets are acting weird I can get on some sites, but not others. For example, I can't get onto Facebook, Blogspot, The Globe and Mail, Hotmail, or Gmail. I can get YouTube, Twitter, Metafilter, and, obviously, MetaChat. I assume it's some kind of virus thing. Any tips on how to fix this? I've tried rebooting to no avail.

Basebrawl 2013 -- Professional Wrestling at Coney Island It's Friday night. I get off work. I'm thinking to myself that I've two choices for the evening. I can watch a Jean Cocteau film at an arthouse theater or head to Coney Island and watch a bunch of fat dudes beat the sh*t out of each other. Being a classy and refined fellow, I picked Coney Island. The pictures are in the link.

Do you have any once-a-year clothing items? At the fireworks tonight, I was checking out people's dedicated 4th of July duds. Lots of people wear red white and blue, but some people clearly have a piece of clothing they wait all year to bust out. For instance, I keep this one long sleeve navy Tshirt with an outline of the lower 48 states on it to wear to fireworks, and I wear it every year pretty faithfully, and never otherwise. And we saw a guy tonight with American flag jeans, and plenty of flag t-shirts.Read more...
