Jumbo BLT T-Shirt Designs

Yay! We’ve got a whole bunch of potential T-shirt designs ready to go. BLT‘s wonderful kind backers will be the ones to decide which ones we actually produce. The plan is to make a minimum of 3 of these designs, although I kind of want them all, now that I am looking at them. Old…( Read more )

Coffee Versus Pot by Amelia G on Blue Blood

Coffee Versus Pot

If you ingest caffeine and THC at the same time, does this mean the race is on?
As the slow march towards the end of marijuana prohibition continues, Washington state’s Mirth Productions just announced it is releasing a series of fruit-flavored and cannabis-infused coffees. The new chill…( Read more )

Time Warner, this is why you suck, Part II

Earlier today, I posted: Hollywood is beautiful when it rains. First comfy lazy day in forever. Coffee, 2 hrs work, hike, pizza, Mad Men, Rubicon, salt bath, nap 🙂

A peaceful mood can change so fast. My day was going really fantabulous and I was feeling genuinely relaxed for the first time in a long time.

So Time Warner phoned a line they shouldn’t even have (it’s like the Batphone for need bail or death in the family), jolting me out of a dozing revery such that I partially broke one of my lower front teeth (ow!), and they were calling to try to sell me digital phone service (when their internet service is spotty and their on-demand is downright defective and they keep claiming they will fix it and don’t *and* when I have told them over and over and over to never make sales calls to me.)

Do you take pride in doing what you do well or at least trying to?

starbucks foamSo, Forrest Black and I just went for coffee. Well, it was Starbucks, so he went for coffee and I went for ice water and conversation. I was just reading a thing about how Warren Buffet built his business and wanted to talk about some of the interesting ways he approached things. So we are talking about how insurance companies invest with your premiums and that is where most of their profits come from, and how Warren Buffet’s primary holding company Berkshire Hathaway actually failed at its primary business and no longer actually produces anything to do with what the original brand was about, and various other factoids which are intriguing, if you find business structures interesting.

At a certain point, I noticed some security guards hovering kind of close to me out of the corner of my eye and wondered if Starbucks had any special rules against people with purple and green hair discussing high finance. I couldn’t think of anything particularly awful I was doing, so I went back to my conversation, but there was still this sense of bad energy. The security guards went away, but people started shouting. As some of the people shouting were Starbucks employees, I assume security fled so they would not be witnesses to the people who worked at the shopping center braining someone with a coffee pot, if that was about to ensue. These security guys know where their paychecks come from and it is not making coffee-drinkers happy.

So apparently there was a customer there who wanted foam on his coffee or crema on his espresso or something like that. The chick who took the order didn’t really understand his question, so she answered kind of noncommittally on whether or not he could . . .

I feel kinda icky today. Eating delicious Pinkberry is helping. Meeting friend for (more) coffee shortly.
