Jam of the Day: Everything Everything - "Distant Past"

Quirky art pop from UK band Everything Everything. If you like Foals crossed with a little of Radiohead's sonic experimentation, you will like this track.

Jam of the Day: City Calm Down - "Rabbit Run"

Brooding track from this Australian band's upcoming debut album In A Restless House.



Love the beard.

Nice bulge.

No grey no play.

I'm a sucker for a Bike jock strap.


Nice furry chest.

Nice furry back and shoulders.

Nothing sexier than a man who reads.



That's a lot of fur.

Cowboy bear.


I love this beefy bear.


Yes, please.

Wow.  Gorgeous.

Woof daddy.


Trucker bear.


Sexy profile and fur.

Big chesticles.


So sexy.



Love the white chest fur.

I'll bring him some coffee in bed.

Just so cute.

I'd cuddle with him.

Sexy otter.

Amazing body.

Wow, I want a chest that big.

Again, I will say it, guns should be banned.

I hate when you can't get a project completed because you have to wait on someone to respond to you.

Last Friday work was so intellectually challenging, I thought my brain might shut down.

I haven't foldered my work emails in over 3 years. My inbox is not happy with me.

Laura is very smart.

If you aren't actually going to have a conversation with me, why do you ever bother initiating one?

As a friend of mine said, you can't argue with stupidity or ignorance.

Pepsi is just gross.

Finally got all our travel plans booked for Bear Week. I feel like I can relax now.

I would love to be relentlessly gay.

I might have said this once or twice to people.

The new Janet Jackson single is pretty underwhelming.

The best relationship is where your partner lets you be yourself.

When Abel is on, he is on.

I can't work a mustache.

I love the word stratagem.


Music Midtown in Atlanta always has the most schizophrenic lineup. They try to be everything to everyone and ends up being an unholy mess.

Lord, this week has been stressful.

It is a travesty of biblical proportions that you can't buy Duke's mayonnaise on the west coast.

I've never understood the appeal of Big Brother.

There was a false alarm in my office building this week. It was interesting how none of us really reacted to it with any type of concern.

Guys, quit trimming. It is not attractive.

Every bear with a laptop is a DJ and every bear with a camera is photographer.


Get rid of the fucking Confederate flags once and for all.

I love when people take pictures out of context.

Change is good, change is good, change is good.

I was at the gym this morning working out on the pec deck and a huge palmetto bug crawled up my leg. I was completely grossed out. For those that don't know what a palmetto bug is, it is basically a flying cockroach. They are nasty.

Some people need to understand what tone is.

This week is the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Always remember.

Scalia is just not a nice person.

Your cute for the day.

Lyrics Rattling Around My Brain

"Shapes in the drink like christ
Cracks in the pale blue wall
I'm walking slowly and quickly but
Always away
Twisting twisting to the floor
Flowers in your mouth and the same dry
Song the routine from laughter land
16 white legs and a row of teeth
I watch you in secrecy

Your dying for the hope is gone
From here we go nowhere again
I'm trapped in my face and i'm changing
Too much
I can't climb out the way i fell in

Jump with me
For that old forgotten dance
The midnight sun will burn you up
Your life is cold
Your life is hot
Your life's too much for words

These occasions are such a relief
Another point another view to send
We start to talk
And it's all so safe
I feed you in my dreams

Footsteps on a wire
High above my head
The stain reveals my real intention
I'm the waiting beast
I'm the twisted nerve
As i dance dance
Back to the body in my bed

Look at the piggy
Piggy in the mirror."

The Cure
"Piggy In The Mirror"

Appealing Things

ObamaCare being upheld by the Supreme Court
Shake N' Bake
The Girl on the Train
Ariana Grande

Annoying Things

Sticker shock
Waiting and waiting for the same sex marriage SCOTUS decision
