Nothing Special
"As I said, I want a show of my own - called Nothing Special"

"Also, Ice-T is the show’s only outlet for dealing with race. Like, it’s a show about rape set in New York City—this is a big opportunity to address serious issues about how black men are treated in the criminal justice system (they’re more likely to get convicted, they’re more likely to get the death penalty, and so on). INSTEAD, though, they just pretend like race isn’t really a thing except for once in a while when Ice-T’s long-lost stepson Ludacris shows up and sex-crimes someone. And then Ice-T is all, "Oh hell naw. [LEMON-FACE]""

The sweet scent of sewage may not sound romantic, but for lovers of urban infrastructure, the Department of Environmental Protection is offering a Valentine’s morning tour of the Newtown Creek Wastewater treatment plant.

Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind

John Donne, Meditation XVII

This is my favourite line from the oft-quoted section of Donne’s Meditation XVII. It seems to be overshadowed by the famous lines it’s nestled between - “No man is an island…” and “Never send to know for whom the bell tolls…”. Anyway, this is my favourite and any attempt to explain why would highlight my inadequate mastery of the English language (compared to Donne), especially when I’ve had a few wines (as I have this evening).

And then there’s this guy named Bob Log, you ever heard of him? He’s this little kid — nobody ever knows how old he is — wears a motorcycle helmet and he has a microphone inside of it and he puts the glass over the front so you can’t see his face, and plays slide guitar. It’s just the loudest strangest stuff you’ve ever heard. You don’t understand one word he’s saying. I like people who glue macaroni on to a piece of cardboard and paint it gold. That’s what I aspire to basically.
