Aeropress “Ritual” (spec)
This is a short tribute to my Aeropress. Two years ago, one was given to me, and it changed everything.
For a little more than $20, this marvel of science will produce arguably the best cup of coffee you’ve ever made in your home. It makes no sense.
Here’s where to buy it: amzn.to/IiqlhO
Beautiful. And my feelings exactly.
“Everybody Parks Like an Asshole”
One of my favorite parts of hearing a new YLNT is discovering the bits where Adam took something okay funny and did something extra to make it a little magical.1
I still remember how this bit (from September 2009’s “Breakin’ In”) caught me completely off-guard.
Today, it still reminds me why Sandy is the only genius in the room.
Don Draper just had brunch where I had brunch. I had the grilled veggie omelette. He had a scotch, a steak, and any woman he wants.
Oh, you better believe you should monitor that RSS feed.
I mean, it’s a legal document, ferchrissakes.
. January, 2008. Just so we always
remember where it all started. Because, as far as I know? This
is where it all started.
“Say, ‘Hello,’ Autocorrect.”
Thank Heaven I didn’t ask if he was working “heads-down.”
The Pipeline #22: Adam Lisagor | 5by5
Dan’s spanking new interview with Adam is a pure gem. Listen to it (mp3).
If, for the past three years, you’ve been cryogenically frozen, doing time in that Midnight Express prison, or living inside a Tupperware bowl, you may not know Adam Lisagor. Of course, for any variety of reasons, since you’re seeing this thing you’re theoretically reading right now, the chances are good that you do know him and already enjoy one or more of the properties in his growing empire on a regular basis.
If you do know Sandy, you already know he’s just the best. And, Dan’s wonderful, intimate, hilarious, and uncommonly insightful helicopter tour of the varied terrain of my friend’s complex topography is unmissable. Really. Listen to it. It’s good.
Well, that was my easiest renewal of the month.
And, y’know, it’s still true.
Before the Twitter.
Before the prototyping.
Before The Aristocrats.
Before the Kottkeblogging.
Before the Don Draper.
Before the Estelle Getty.
Before the noises rested.
Before all of that intimacy of my properly knowing The Sandwich, there was the meeting of The Sandwich at Macworld 2007.
Regrettably, I remember very little about this particular night; I was, to use a term from internal medicine, staggeringly drunk.
But, I do treasure this picture. Because, it’s like Elvis meeting Nixon. And, Leo Laporte. Who, I’m pretty sure was who Sandy really wanted to meet.
Which is fine and totally understandable. But, again, I kind of can’t remember.
Still. Nice photo.
