My Testimonials

June 16, 2007
echidna is cooler than you will ever be, because he was an old school hardcore punk rocker when you were in diapers. the fact that he has progeny gives me a tiny bit more hope for the survival of the human species. [and on a technical note: the fact that he is developing in Java rather than .Net is a f?!?ing relief.)

2. So much of the fitness and health writing out there is so dry you practically have to hydrate after you read it. I think it’s time we injected some humor into the genre.

3. Most people do not have the time to s... read more

Yes, we're playing

It's true: Engine 88 is playing a show. The deal is it's our old friend Peter Ellenby's book release party (the book is Every Day is Saturday), and he managed to contact a bunch of us old farts and connive us into sharing a backline and coughing up some tunes together. We're probably going to play 5-7 songs.

The show is on Friday October 27th, at Bottom of the Hill. The lineup is actually pretty impressive and fun: John Doe, Carlos, Overwhelming Colorfast, Oranger, an... read more

The real observant among you will remember a while back I dissed the Nike Frees as calf cramp machines. The Frees, for those who don't know, and those shoes that are supposed to strengthen your legs and be more like running barefoot, blah blah. While I generously offered that Nike ...
