I love seeing the Yankees get demolished. Last year when I saw Chien-Ming Wang open for the Yanks in Toronto the Jays lit him up for a bunch of runs early as well. I wonder if he’s got the stuff for the big leagues.

Pitchfork gives music 6.8 →
“Schreiber’s semi-favorable review, which begins in earnest after a six-paragraph preamble comprising a long list of baroquely rendered, seemingly unrelated anecdotes peppered with obscure references, summarizes music as a ‘solid but uninspired effort.’” Oldie but a goodie.

Actually, to be clear, what you need is an economic model that can support a corps of passionate, clear-thinking individuals who are dedicated to vigilantly watching over the progression of the medium....

He overcame this disadvantage through the clever combination of a Portuguese-French dictionary and a French-English one, through which the entire corpus of English idioms was...
This is my favourite sushi restaurant in Vancouver. Their Enchanted Forest Roll defies the laws of ingredient mixing. Also, they have a sweet website, and their online reservations actually work!

With every new design decision, critics cry foul. Without conviction, doubt creeps in. Instincts fail. “Is this the right move?” When a company is filled with engineers, it turns to engineering to solve problems. Reduce each...
