Wow….I didn’t know Roger Simon was retiring! That makes me sad, but glad he gets to relax and enjoy life.
He was an awesome columnist to read. His ‘simon says‘ series on politico.com was one of my favorites. I recommend going back and reading some of his 2016 campaign pieces. I suspect Mr. Simon will be signing the “I told you so” song within the next few months.
Here is his retirement article: ‘A Majority of One Walks Away.‘
Roger Simon was also pretty amazing on TV. Here is Roger Simon on CNN talking about the government shutdown a few years ago:
I was reading this NME article about Pet Shop Boys getting the ‘Godlike Genius’ award, and I realized I never bothered listening to their album ‘Super.’ I watched this youtube clip and loved it:
I ran to the album earlier today. It is pretty good if you like dance-y 80s-ish stuff.
New album from The XX!!!!!
So excited! It’s certainly their most upbeat album.
I see people sharing their opinions on the Russian Hacking events, but they haven’t read the intelligence report yet. Did you know it’s online? You can take responsibility for yourself and actually read it here. It’s an interesting read.
Donald Trump didn’t seem to take away from it the way a decent human being should, and he had more information. It’s pretty stunning to me that we just electing someone who is prepared to sell out our own intelligence community (and prob our military soon enough) in order to side with our greatest rival. Stunning.
I feel like I am living in an alternative universe.

I love ‘The Privateers’ episode because of the ‘Marion Cotesworth-Haye’ character. I want to be her when I grow up:
This story is too much fun, and I’m not really sure why. Check out this NYT piece:
If you haven’t seen the “performance” yet, check it out here:
Today is the last Burrito Friday of 2016. In my opinion, this is one of the most important burrito days of the year. Make it a good one!
If you haven’t already seen my instagram account, you know that I love food, especially Mexican food. I post food pictures all the time. If you are into that sort of thing, please follow me.
Today I plan to go to one of my favorite burrito places and eat a cow tounge burrito. It’s going to be amazing. It isn’t a Mission Burrito, but I am far away from San Francisco.
FYI if you need burrito receipes, I recommend checking this “thedailymeal.com” article on the best burrito recipes. The mission burrito recipe on that article is pretty solid.
I was listening to NPR Music today and heard a song called ‘The Game’ by Gabriel Garzón-Montano, and instantly loved it. Here is the song:
He has quite the biography! I can’t believe I haven’t heard his music until today. Drake sampled his music in one of his songs, and he had opened for acts like Lenny Kravitz. You can see his soundcloud page here.
Listening to his album now, it’s pretty good!
Also he seems to be pretty awesome live! Here is a live version of ‘Keep on Running.’
This is me, trying to buy something from the supermarket, while every sales person on earth tries to upsell me on all the things….
Seriously…I’m not very nice when I’ve been stuck in traffic and just want to buy one thing at the store.
I totally forgot to post this old picture from last years Automattic Grand Meetup. Memories.
