Chlorophyll, Carotenoids, Flavonoids & Anthocyanins are really popular in Michigan in Autumn. You’ll often hear Michiganders exclaim “I see the colors!” as though referring to mythical hue beasts. Fear not, gentle people of the Midwest: nobody’s dropped acid in your Vernors; it’s science!

Great to see all these companies with vested interests finally jumping on the bandwagon at the eleventh hour. Way to be timely, Tumblr!

staff:

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

From out of the blue…

Edit:
I wound up riding the elevator with the window washer later on. Trying to think of something original to ask him, I said “What’s the strangest thing that’s happened to you in your job?” To which he replied “Uh, nothing. It’s work.” 


Which I guess goes to show every job gets old. How depressing.

Radiator Hospital playing some tracks from their new album (Torch Song) tonight at Vertigo Records. Very happy that they opened with my favorite track (Cut Your Bangs) from the album!

You should probably follow dizzybird records on The Twitters; Like them on The Faceyspaces; Look at their pics on The Instagrams and listen to sweet, sweet sounds on The Soundclouds. If all else fails, you could check their page on the interwebs.

The June version of this ride (Fly to the Coq) was a blast! Check out my post on the event, and Jane Van Hof’s article in MI Craft Beer Magazine.

Many (if not most) of us rode up to Rockford before riding back to Vivant, turning it into a ~30 mile round trip. This time the ride officially starts in GR and goes to Rockford, so it will be the same for me and anyone who’s riding with me.

Get on your bikes and ride!

Pretty Boy Floyd:

I don’t want to go through life eating peanut butter & jelly! I want to go through life eating lobster, and caviar, and taking you with me!

The rest of his instructional video is quite repetitive, but he makes a good point on the importance of eating a balanced diet.

Jane and I cycled up the White Pine Trail to watch Goo Goo Dolls at Fifth-Third Ballpark (Grand Rapids MI) last night. It was a good show, but we had to sit through Daughtry first, and unfortunately we missed Plain White Tees (the opener) as they must have started right after doors around 6:30!

I thought the single-song encore of a Supertramp cover was a strange choice, but I guess it’s a standard of theirs.
