Time to update the resume’s awards and achievements section.
The building where NewsRadio's WNYX office is (1450 Broadway), then and now.
The Program (1993)
The advent of the more stretchy, technical jersey materials has meant that football players with bare midriffs are essentially a thing of the past.
Cars that have murals of themselves
Manhattan hoteliers have figured out that improving the guest experience is expensive, but you can get the same results by destroying the guest’s self-esteem to such an extent that they won’t complain. That’s why they put so many mirrors around the toilet.
Free B- English paper idea: Encino Man has a lot of narrative similarity with The Great Gatsby.
A museum dedicated to the preservation, display, and promotion of board games where a VHS tape plays a critical role in gameplay.
The ultimate endgame for this is a “Colonial Williamsburg”-style living history museum where visitors can watch bored teenagers in period costumes attempt to play the games in a basement setting.
Ford created Taurus for us…
Ford has seen where we’re going…
Ford has seen the future…
Ford as religion.
I don’t really think a car company is a good basis for a religion, because of the frequency of problems with cars versus the frequency of car purchases. It’s probably 4 or 5 to 1, right?
You need something where there’s more control over the product and more frequent purchasing - a soft drink company seems like a better basis for a religion to me. The ratio of problems I’ve had with soda to purchases is probably more like 1 to 5,000 or so.
Safeway has upped its game lately - they are now selling their private label version of Samoas.
Also private label Mallomars… in the Mallomar ‘off-season’ and in Seattle, where I don’t think I have ever seen Mallomars being sold.
This probably reveals how little use I find for it, but the iOS App Store is absolutely dystopian: everything has ads, nothing works correctly, and everyone is attempting to steal your money.
I’m an air conditioning enthusiast. But I was having a problem: there’s cold enough air coming into my bedroom, but it’s all being wasted cooling everything - the desk, the dresser, the closet - while I’m laying in my too warm bed like an idiot.
So I why don’t I just pipe the cold air straight into my bed?
That’s what I did. After I built some cardboard prototypes that worked well enough, I invested about $15 or so in parts to make a better version.
The end of the duct that is winds up under the bed covers should be covered with something, since it is basically sheared metal.
It works better than I’d expected. Since building this, I spend most my free time enjoying the ice cold comfort of my bed.
