A New Low

They've done it again; just when you thought you were fully Boulder Whole Foods Battle Hardened, these people manage to redefine solipsism. Lemme tell ya what happened. The other day I'm in the BWF, and I roll up to a cashier with my basket. The cashier was just finishing up…

Elk Insanity

You'd think that after seven years of living in Boulder, CO this shit wouldn't faze me anymore, but, alas. Since there's no way this made the national news, let me tell ya what happened here in our little hamlet of Boulder on New Year's Day. An on-duty Boulder cop shot…

Art & Copy

So, I finally saw this movie I've been meaning to see for a while, "Art & Copy". It's a sad, disgusting (read: excellent) documentary about the collection of whores and egomaniacs working in the advertising business, and, by extension, about everything that is wrong with our society. "By the way…

Change

I finished my last job on Friday, and for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to start the new one the following Monday. Guess that means I start my new job tomorrow, and to say I'm excited would be an understatement. Today was a study in…

Riled about Resumes

I read a recent post on Lifehacker this morning about resume writing (no, I'm not looking for a job, I just read Lifehacker religiously), and readers were encouraged to post their own tips and peeves in the comments. I thought I'd share my thoughts here. (Can you smell the rant…

There's a Reason for the Silence:

I am unable to speak--have been for days--because I saw Bob Costas' Olympic hair. You have GOT to be fucking kidding me. …

Cross-burning Aside, Johnny's Good People

My old college roommate sent me this gem, an a.p. story out of Columbus, Ohio. Read to the end for the kicker; I even put it in bold type, not that it needs any emphasis. Ohio board reviews report of teacher burning kids By DOUG WHITEMAN, Associated Press Writer…

Assbutt

One time, in high school (not band camp), my friend Brian Scargill called someone an "assbutt" in gym class. I'll never forget it. I thought it was brilliant, to call a guy an amalgam of slang phrases for the posterior. While I never forgot the moment, or the expression, I've…

Trolls Near My House

Yeah, that's right, there are trolls guarding the pedestrian bridge over Foothills Parkway just a few hundred yards from my house. This story should give you a good insight to some of the characters that inhabit this fine town of Boulder. I consider these people to be my outdoor pets…

The Problem with Whole Foods

It's not that it's always crowded, it's not the hypocrisy of their touting sustainability while selling Chilean Tomatoes in the Garden State, it's not the fact that they charge five clams for a tomato and cheese sandwich. The real problem with Whole Foods, at least here at the Boulder branch…

Whammy

Peter Tomarken, the host of the 80's TV game show "Press Your Luck", got himself and his wife killed in a plane crash the other day. The ultimate whammy. From the eyewitness reports and the wreckage, it appears that he had a problem with the plane shortly after takeoff, apparently…
