Semi-Conscious: Driving in the Real World

Presented for your ironic amusement, this hip safety video features four diverse teen pals singing such classics as “Intersection,” “Pick Your Spot/Get Up to Speed/Go With the Flow” and “Stay Out of the No Zone.”

If you accidentally get one of these songs stuck in your head, I apologize. At least I didn’t point you at the Monchichi song. Oops.

As to why I’m watching a driving safety video on a Sunday evening? I plead the fifth.

Good news for fellow Top Chef fans


Good news, Top Chef fans, particularly Fabio fans. Fabio Viviani is getting his own show. Not a lot of detail yet, but there’s a bit more here. Dina and I found him charming. He could indeed, as he put it, sell “monkey ass on a clam shell.” Hoping for a fun show and some good recipes. I’d love to eat at his restaurant someday.

I think I owe someone at The Suffolk Voice a cheeseburger


I was very pleased to see a positive review of Devil’s Cape in The Suffolk Voice a while back, but I was surprised and thrilled to get a shout-out in a Watchmen review. I’ve been flattered in the past when people reviewing Devil’s Cape have mentioned Watchmen, but to actually see someone comparing Watchmen to Devil’s Cape is very, very cool (and yes, I realize it’s mostly a matter of timing and referencing a previous article, but I’ll take my thrills where I can find them).

Here’s a quote:

The heroes of Watchmen have a lot in common with the heroes in Devil's Cape. They have no superpowers, they drink, they smoke, and some are mentally unstable but they are all vulnerable to things like bullets, knives, arc welders, cancer, age and nuclear weapons.
