Review of the Last 60 Years of War, Told With Food

Each country is represented by a different kind of food. Americans are — what else — hamburgers and fries. This is the best short movie I’ve seen in a long time… I especially like how the croissants don’t do a thing.

Any guesses to the identity of the other kinds of foods?

It seems like every other day, I’m in New York City. Flying in at 5 PM. Having dinner with people I don’t necessarily want to have dinner with, sleeping, getting up early, going to meetings, and then flying out again.

Tuna and Kobe Beef on Fire (and on a hot rock). That’s extra pyro power.

And yes. I complain. But I do eat well…

We are inaugurating a new GIKKU.COM feature called Song of the Day.  We’re not promising that there will be a song EVERY day, but there will be plenty to come for certain.

Of course, the first Song of the Day has to be the Portal Song – “Still Alive”.  Enjoy with cake.

Gaming the System

Last night at the democratic debates, the phrase “gaming the system” was used over and over again. Allen and I remarked on this while text messaging incessantly to each other. We wondered: can we “game the system” too, just like big pharma and oil companies and people who are trying to avoid joining Hillary’s healthcare plan?

While we consider that, observe the snowstorm from my office window here in TOWNIE TOWN.

Total eclipse, February 20, 2008.  And by happy 80’s cheese ballad coincidence, it’s a total eclipse of the heart — the star in the top part of the image is Regulus, the “heart” of the constellation Leo, the lion.  (The point of light in the lower left is Saturn.)

Given that I’m a Leo, it must be an astrological ill omen to have Bonnie Tyler involved in all this.  Perhaps I will sacrifice several mix tapes on the altar to ward off any evil junior high flashbacks.

Stewardess: So, you just spending a couple hours here?

Me: No, no I actually live here.

Stewardess: Really?
