I’d play for half my salary if I could hit in this dump all the time.

Some signs from my trip in southern Africa that amused me for one reason or another

An Old Spanish Painting Perfectly Depicts What George Michael And Maeby’s Love Child Would Look Like

This is surreal. And not like in a Surrealist way.

Can we get a positive ID on the artist and/or title for this?

To pluck or not to pluck

— The conundrum of every balding, graying man

Thrilled to be back on OkC.

One day we went surfing, then visited Waves for Change, which, through surfing, gives kids from the townships a safe, fun thing to do after school. It also educates them on HIV/AIDS prevention and other important issues. It’s awesome; you should donate.

My Days-of-the-Week Playlist

"Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down" — Johnny Cash

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn’t hurt
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad
So I had one more for dessert

"Blue Monday" — New Order

Tell me, how does it feel
When your heart grows cold?

"Ruby Tuesday" — Rolling Stones

There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Go catch your dreams before they slip away
And dying all the time
Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind
Ain’t life unkind?

"Wednesday Week" — Elvis Costello

You can lead and I will follow
See us dancing cheek to cheek
You’ll remember me tomorrow
But you won’t give a damn by Wednesday week

"Sweet Thursday" — Matt Costa

Sweet Thursday is calling me back up to Monterey

So I started driving
And left my home behind me
The row there kept reminding
Of pages in your writing

"Friday I’m in Love" — The Cure

I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday too
Thursday, I don’t care about you
It’s Friday, I’m in love

"It’s Saturday Night" — Proclaimers

The drink that I had three hours ago
Has been joined by fourteen others in a steady flow

So let me walk straight, don’t let me feel pain
I’m gonna scratch cars with my key again
'Cos when I go home and fall on my bed
If it doesn’t leave my stomach, it’ll split my head
