commented on Reader Survey: Is Astrology Real?
I recently got into an argument with someone who claimed astrology was "dangerous". That it was on par with the anti-vaccination mentality. I didn't actually think anyone was stupid enough to take him seriously. Way to prove me wrong, Stranger.

commented on Are Beards a "Disgusting Fad"?
I only have a beard right now because I'm on blood thinners for 6 months. I love shaving and can't wait to get this face carpet straight-razored off. that said, the only thing more obnoxious than beards is beard backlash. just shut the fuck up already.

I just bought an 8-square Kallax in addition to my well-loved, very over-full Expedit. It's already looking pretty packed. For a little more than $100 I could easily justify one of these in a year or so; they're sexy and functional.

commented on Records Collecting Dust: A Documentary That Needs More Women and More Color
To be fair, I'm really hard-pressed to come up with even a short list of noteworthy and accessible women or POC in Southern California to be interviewed for this. That whole scene is white dudes forever. But let's play the game... Since Mario Rubalcaba doesn't count, would Kid Congo Powers? Some of the ladies from the Bangles? Gwen Stefani? Does Patricia Morrison still live in LA? Alice Bag?
Blackmore obviously just called his friends up to be interviewed for this. I know from two decades of personal experience that the bro-y sausage fest in San Diego, OC and LA kinda permeates into everything. I wish it wasn't the case, and that's one of the reasons I left.
