Atlantic Antic 2017

September 24, 2017


I’ve blogged about this so many times, please refer to prior year posts. The kiddos are getting older so we actually got to sit down at one place to enjoy food and drinks. It was hot this year, but overall a very nice antic. Food roundup for me:

  • alcupurrias (Spanish church)
  • corn (who knows, it’s everywhere)
  • empenanda (second pass by the Spanish church, seriously good)
  • oysters (from French Louie – they said they had 3,000 oysters and ran out)
  • fries (same place, really good)
  • bratwurst (random German stand)
  • pizza (Brado, my local joint)
  • gumbo (The Gumbo Bros)

What makes this the best street fair in NYC is that on top of the generic street fair food (not that there’s any wrong with the sausage and peppers truck), the local joints are providing the food, drinks and music. Crazy good fun. I need to burp…

I Love Art Because…

Via SMBC, as usual…

It's a shame there wasn't ever a snake-biting-someone's-dick movement in art.

Take Care of Yourself

May 10, 2017

I read two simple things on random blogs today. The first was a poem I really liked and almost posted right away. But I hadn’t heard of the author and googling him showed he was also a socialist politician and these days I’m avoiding politics on the blog. But screw it, in South America in the 60’s lots of people were socialists and it’s a poem.

So via Om Malik who may have the best URL around, a poem by Pable Neruda called Dies Slowly:

He who does not travel,
who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
dies slowly

Follow by John Scalzi (who could be a socialist, who knows?):

Take care of yourself. You’re not getting any younger, you know. Do things that give you joy, with people you like and love. It’s more important than you might think.

Do things that give you joy…

Millennials in the Workplace

January 9, 2017

This is a portion of a one hour episode from Inside Quest. I had never heard of Inside Quest before, their motto is “This is what would happen if TED Talks, Tony Robbins and Oprah had a baby that read a lot”.

This excerpt is 15 minutes and is a fascinating discussion of the struggles of Millennials now that they are in the corporate world. I’ll probably check out the full hour…
