Tribute to Elliott Smith

Posted by chrisbenson on November 23, 2013 in Uncategorized |

About nine years ago, after Elliott Smith died, I recorded one of his a cappella songs and I posted it to my blog. For some reason, when I woke up next to my laptop a little while ago, it was playing in Windows Media Player.

I couldn’t have made that happen on purpose if I’d wanted to, so I’m not sure what I did, but I’ve worked pretty hard to get it back up here on my blog right now, so I hope you’ll give a listen.

It’s a little rough, but I knocked it out in a couple of hours one night, and I’m not as ashamed now as I was 9 years ago.

BIC came out with a line of pens “for her” that has turned into a bit of a marketing horror story – the mock-reviews are pretty funny:

What is with the media? People and animals all over Europe are choking on volcanic ash from the eruption in Iceland and nobody writes about pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis?

Joel Achenbach’s take on the Decade

Posted by chrisbenson on December 27, 2009 in Uncategorized |

I really like Joel’s summary of the first 10% of the 21st century. I especially like his closing paragraph:

“As history marches on, this decade will be known for its stumbles and reversals. The scolds and doubters reminded us that hope is not a plan. But neither is despair a winning strategy. The smart move is to look back at the 2000s glancingly, and then turn, with optimism, to the decade ahead.”
