The lovely Brooke and the almost-as-lovely Buckley visited the Big Apple! We had a lovely time, enjoy a few cocktails and good fun and games were had by all. Yay!

I finally figured out how to repair the damage done to my bedroom door in my fit of Hulk-like rage. I’ve been on the prowl for something thin to cover the door with so I could drill a new (clean) hole and put in a new (non locking) doorknob and I finally figured it out […]
Wow, this is really, really, cool. A 19 year old kid from Australia took “Alice in Wonderland”, sampled some of the voices, loaded the whole thing into Final Cut and remixed into a cool little music video. Alice “sings” reversed words from the show and the whole thing just has this eerie, floaty, cool vibe. […]
One of the little coy tricks I do here on Nakedsponge is when I link to shit on Amazon, I get a 4% credit against the purchase. The big dream behind my TikiJohnny website was that I’d list links to cocktail books and I’d eventually make enough in referrals that I’d be able to get […]
They really do not mess around here. I was stumbling home looking for some nosh and I found a donair stand. Lamb donairs to feed five thousand people? No worries, we got that covered. That is, like, a SHITLOAD of meat.
Well look at this! April Telek, who I basically haven’t seen since my highschool days, is on the cover of Playback Magazine! I may be living in New York but I do like to keep abreast of what’s happening “up north” (it’s good to know, for example, if the DGC strike is likely to happen […]

I sometimes walk past the oddest things here and find I’m unable to refrain from taking out my iPhone and snapping a photo. Check this out. It’s a dumpster literally OVERFLOWING with discarded pickles. What’s the story here? What conversation preceded this? “What the hell are we going to do will all these pickles? Get […]
OMG! Nerd moment here – I played BattleTech like a thousand years ago. It was my first foray into tabletop gaming and it was GREAT! Well, the memories are, anyhow. The mini painting? Not so good. But it was a hoot and now it’s BACK! BattleTech has been dormant for years (it’s best to just […]
I went to a drinks night called “Tech Drinks New York” last night and I got to meet Gary Vaynerchuk from the insanely popular Wine Library TV! Gary had done a spot on CNBC earlier so we checked out the segment in the bar. Today (May 8th) Gary’s going to be on Conan O’Brian, so […]
