You Tell 'Em!

Overheard today on the streets of Brentwood:

"That's EXACTLY what we should be doing! I mean, this chick can't hold us hostage over ONE fucking actor!"

I might as well just direct deposit my paycheck into Stevie J's personal account now that SpongeBob eps have hit the iTunes store.

Oh Snap!

So TechCrunch threw the smack down on us this morning, but neglected to take one thing into account...there is a shitload of Diet Coke in the company fridge. Food for thought.

UPDATE: Om Malik weighs in.

Hasta La Vista, Starbucks (Ugh)

Saw the Terminator this morning at Starbucks. Details on Star Sightings, another pic here.

You Might Not Want to Go In There For a Bit...

Tell us about the nastiest bathroom you've ever encountered.

Speaking of Starbucks...

Here's Starbucks Reviews, a new Ning app I made to review...uh...Starbucks stores.

Starbucks Report #1

Now that I'm all Ninged-out, various L.A. Starbucks stores act as my day-to-day office. I'm therefore starting this series of "embedded" reports to document the near-daily comic gold I get to witness.

To catch things up, here are a few gems from the past several weeks:

LOCATION: Santa Monica and Bundy in West L.A.
DATE: A week ago-ish
A homeless guy came in here the other day (talking to himself, natch) and proceeded to fill two GIANT cups with almost all of the creamer available. He then chilled out for a few minutes (mumbling and picking up trash) before walking out. Oh, and he left behind a WET iBook box. Slow clap.

LOCATION: Santa Monica and Bundy in West L.A.
DATE: A week ago-ish
A guy exploded into the store the other day, screaming at a woman who'd parked her car in front of the parking lot's exit (she was just quickly running in). He dropped about twenty f-bombs before screaming "fuck you, you fat bitch!" and storming out.

LOCATION: Santa Monica and Bundy in West L.A.
DATE: 1/17/05
As I was walking into the store today I spotted a homeless guy doing INTENSE interpretive dance (aided by a circa-1985 boombox) to Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On."


Zeldman throws down a well-balanced, sensible article about the AJAX/Web 2.0 craze.

Momentary Pause

Phew. Been a crazy couple of weeks. We got some questionable results back from a recent prenatal blood screen, which resulted in Sarah getting an amnio, a genetic counseling session, a delayed holiday trip back to Illinois and almost two weeks of near-paralyzing dread.

Finally, at Chuck E. Cheese in Vernon Hills (of all places), I got the call that all tests came back fine. A happy end to a terrifying stretch of time.

Oh, and it's a third boy. Just call me Bryan Cranston.
