 Son's old 1988 stick-shift red e30 BMW is pretty fun, too.…

Supposedly Jane Goodall

“When the aging gorilla is confronted with the much more virile, new alpha-male, he shows submissiveness by grooming the alpha-male, but the gesture is actually a vain attempt by the old gorilla to humiliate his much younger rival.”…

When acid was offered earlier that evening I’d thought back to the only other time I’d tried it, a little bit shared a with a co-worker years before; the only…

Book Clubs and Book Lists

There’s a couple of book clubs I know of presenting books to read for January. One of the book clubs is hosted by our local independent bookseller, the other has spread widely online by a tweet from Duncan Jones, David Bowie’s son.
