I'm a fighter, not a lover.

Is this the definition of irony?

Last night, while riding my bike through Brooklyn, I saw a trash truck on Flatbush Ave. While stopped at a red light, the trashman driving rolled down his window and tossed his apple core onto the street.

Door-to-door doctoring

Maybe the creepiest man ever.

Why Coney Island Is Dangerous.

So this weekend was the annual Shawn Birthday Weekend Extravaganza. So, for his birthday, I gave Shawnie the greatest gift I could think of... the gift of Handlebars. If I had breasts, perhaps it would have been a different present, but I don't. So this is it--the next best thing.

MMMMM, Brooklyn!

It's restaurant week in Brooklyn.

That means through April 11, you can get a delicious, three-course meal for just $20.06 at more than 150 different restaurants across Kings County.

Participating restaurants listed by neighborhood here.

The adventures of Josh and Josh

Tonight, for the second time in about 6 weeks, I'm seeing Josh Rouse perform. Last time, it was a solo acoustic affair at Joe's Pub. Tonight, it's a full band performance at Town Hall in support of his "Spanish" record, Subtitulos. I'll be in the third row.

Incidentally, my buddy Matt may still have an extra ticket if anyone is interested. "May" is the operative word. His tickets are not in the third row.

Also, everyone's favorite Idahoan (aside from the soon-to-be-birthday-gal, Kathleen, of course) is set to release his fourth record on Tuesday. Until that time, you can stream the new Josh Ritter, entitled The Animal Years, here.

I suppose I look Jewish

Maybe it's the beard.

At any rate, today is the Annual Mitzvah Tank Parade and while I don't really know what that means, other than what I have learned on Gothamist and Wikipedia, it seems to involve assuming that I'm Jewish.

In two completely different parts of the city, young Jewish boys, scattered from their RVs-turned-parade-vehicles, have attempted to capture my ear, based solely on the assumption that I shared their faith.

Happy 104th birthday Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson!

See you October 2nd

Steph the Roommate just ordered the baseball package for cable. That means that we have the option of choosing from 2,430 games to watch, beginning today and running through October 1. More importantly, that means we have the option of watching 162 Red Sox games.
