I’m going back to Kentucky this weekend, where I can feel the freshly cut bluegrass coursing through my veins. Or something like that.
I really like this picture. My friend Pat took it.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m curating the Adult Education lecture series at Union Hall for the next couple of months, and the Sept. 16 lineup is all set. The theme is “School for Scandal,” and complete details are available here. The program is as follows:
“Authenticity and Reality: Lessons from the New York Reality TV School,” presented by the school’s founder, Robert Galinsky.
“The Show-Off,” a cautionary film from 1954, courtesy of Skip Elsheimer at the A/V Geeks film archive, that “demonstrates that nothing scandalizes a classroom more than the wise-ass who sits in the back of the room. Sure, all the kids laugh at him but isn’t he ultimately making things worse for everybody?”
“Takeru Kobayashi Cheated!” an explosive investigation by Gersh Kuntzman, who has seen his share of scandals as a veteran of the New York Post and the current editor of The Brooklyn Paper.
All hosted by Charles Star, a lawyer sans portfolio and a stand-up comedian sans recognition who lives in Brooklyn with his excellent wife, his awesome cat, and a newborn baby genius.

My wife’s cousin’s husband has to have the most beat-ass cellphone that’s still in service. It made me feel bougie. Click it for the full view.

I’m headed to Ocean City, New Jersey, tomorrow for a week-long family vacation. If the timing works out, I’m hoping to catch the Miss Ocean City Pageant tomorrow night. (Although I doubt the costumes will top last year’s.) I’ll post some pics if I make it. Increasingly, the best place to follow me online is Friendfeed. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a service that aggregates all your online activity from various sites so you can share it with friends. My Friendfeed, for example, logs all my posts to Twitter, Flickr, Scribd, Delicious, and to this blog. Pretty useful if you’re into that sort of thing.
