Beans and Rice!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__r9y5xBwug

I must have seen this PSA a hundred times when I was a kid in the mid-80s, and it made me a beans and rice man for life. We need more catchy...

Re: Will's adventures in The Total Perspective Vortex

That wouldn't be too difficult to implement and definitely has its merits as a solution—more than my scarlet letter, in any case—but it might lead to the level of gamesmanship that Siva talks about...

Re: Will's adventures in The Total Perspective Vortex

I'm not convinced: Will's page, including 20k photo, has to be what, 40k? Even multiplying that by a million people only costs you 40 gigs of server space, which is pocket change. And although users...

Will's adventures in The Total Perspective Vortex

Not quite done listening, but one quick comment on the Wikipedia notability debate. While anyone with a regular show on as august and venerable a website as bloggingheads easily passes any such...

Re: NERRRRRRRRRRRDS!

Oh, and one more point about Maus: while TSE's triad of key pre-Maus Holocaust books is a point well taken, I do think that there's one big difference between Maus and the rest of them, which is that...

Re: NERRRRRRRRRRRDS!

Auster: I think you'll really like that adaptation, then—it really captures the feel of the Auster novella in a way that reflects a deeply thoughtful take on the problems of translating a work from...

Re: NERRRRRRRRRRRDS!

Those are good points, and I freely admit that my take has to do with my own aesthetic leanings—I also prefer Thurber to Perelman, Newman to Costello, DJ Shadow to Girl Talk, etc...i.e., I have a...

Re: NERRRRRRRRRRRDS!
