"The fundamental truth: a baseball game is nothing but a great slow contraption for getting you to pay attention to the cadence of a summer day."

"Sports is man’s joke on God. You see, God says to man, ‘I’ve created a universe where it seems like everything matters, where you’ll have to grapple with life and death and in the end you’ll die anyway, and it won’t really matter.’ So man says to God, ‘Oh, yeah? Within your universe we’re going to create a sub-universe called sports, one that absolutely doesn’t matter, and we’ll follow everything that happens in it as if it were life and death.’"

For everyone spending their summers indoors at work…



Most of y’all have picked these up by now, but DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie’s two ‘Summertime' mixtapes have had me bobbin my head at my computer for the past week.

The 90’s vibe (everyone’s favorite decade for music) has been the perfect change of pace for me when I get tired of writing code with turntable.fm’s  dubstepilicious ‘Coding Soundtrack' room in the background.

My literary heroes came to life the way I always imagined they would be like. I’m in love with Marion Coltillard’s onscreen characters more than ever. And for the first time ever, there’s an Owen Wilson character who I actually like and can identify with.Most notably for me, I’m nostalgic for a trip to Paris that I took just less than a year ago. It was like Woody Allen went on my facebook, went to my Paris album, and decided to use it as inspiration for all of the shots in the film.

This is how I feel about most of the stuff I see people share in their Facebook statuses. I’m sure the feeling is mutual.

Amy Poehler was one of the featured speakers at Harvard’s Commencement Ceremony yesterday and gave great advice to the Class of 2011 that included being nicer to your parents, putting down your iPhone once in a while and being open and willing to work with others. She also made jokes.

I have a huge crush on her, Tina Fey and Kristen Wiig, probably because I watch too much TV. Or maybe I just like attractive women who make me laugh.

Nope, must be all the TV I watch.

Sometimes people will say, “Music isn’t as good as it used to be back in the day.” And usually my first instinct is to knock them off their fucking high horse with my Lady Gaga CD.

But today, I’m going to agree with those folks.

We use a lot of words to describe something culturally or artistically and sometimes the word itself is impossible to describe using other words. Some of my favorites are umami, je nas se quois and soul.

In the middle of a 40-minute set at the Harlem Square Club in 1963, Sam Cooke did what words often fail to do and defined soul.
