It's been a year
No, this isn’t about Rosh HaShanah, this is about Cal Baseball. It’s been a year since Cal Baseball was cut. In that year, my relationship with the school, with baseball, and with life has changed so much. I work so much harder at baseball now…. and really, there are so many memories and emotions coursing through me that I can’t think straight. I’ll leave it to Danny...

harrywhogleeks: John Green just casually summing up ~my type~ “Oh, and lastly let me explain something briefly to boys. Gentlemen, nerd girls are the world’s greatest, underutilised romantic resource. And guys, do not tell me that nerd girls aren’t hot because that shows a Paris Hilton-esque failure to understand hotness.”
Music Project: day 2.
Tumblr wouldn’t let me upload the song, so here’s a youtube video of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2a0j1QreTI8 this song reminds me of last time I lived in berkeley. it was back in 2006, and I had seen the movie Hoot, that previous spring, and liked it, but especially the soundtrack (in retrospect, that was the best part of the movie, really one of the few good things about...

Project brain crack idea
OK, for the next week (or so), I’m going to post one song a day, each one will be a song that reminds me of a place/time, I will post along with it, and explanation. I think day one (today) is going to be a song from my young childhood… EDIT: I’ve picked a song, I’m waiting for it to download, it’s hebrew, reminds me of fourth/fifth grade in New York, funny how...

A 9/11 post. What I remember.
I’m from New York, I may not have lived there for long, but I grew up there. Twice. Once as a grade-schooler, once this past summer (and I may talk about that sometime later, but that’s not the point of this post). At the time of 9/11 though, I hadn’t lived in New York for any real extended period of time. Despite this, I was very much connected to New York, both my parents lived nearly their...
Word don't fail me...
They just overwhelm me. And life, it overwhelms me as well. Here’s a picture of the tribute in lights from last year, I remember when the lights were there every night, and to be honest, I think it’s better if it is only on 9/11 of every year. I don’t trust America not to marginalize it otherwise (I don’t trust us as it is not to trivialize this tragedy). This is, in my...

wwnorton: “In Billy Beane’s mind, pitchers were nothing like high-performance sports cars, or thoroughbred racehorses, or any other metaphor that implied a cool, inbuilt superiority. They were more like writers. Like writers, pitchers initiated action, and set the tone for their games. They had all sorts of ways of achieving their effects and they needed to be judged by those effects, rather...
