Outside the Chester Beatty museum in Dublin there’s a small gumball dispenser, the kind you see everywhere, only this one wasn’t filled with gumballs, but with gemstones. The charm of this method of delivery is kind of ruined when they had to put this sticker on, to avoid broken teeth and potential lawsuits. For those […]

Eight pints. Eight. Fucking. Pints. That’s almost 4 liters of beer. 4 liters. These Irish guys are crazy. Fun, but crazy. I haven’t been this drunk since Prague. You wouldn’t believe how long it took me to write this entry. Tomorrow? Tomorrow we’re starting class late. Tomorrow we’re ending class early. Tomorrow is Hangover Day. […]

“Wanna go for a beer before your flight?”, my IM flashed. “Nah. Gotta get up real early. Too tired for a late-night beer”. “How about an early-morning beer, then?” the challenge was issued. Several ping-pong messages later the issue escalated an none of us could back down. 4:30am. Gotta be some bar open. We’ll get […]

First, a comment about seating. There’s nothing more depressing than getting nosebleed seats to a great concert. The Flaming Lips are in town the same day I am and there are no tickets available for the stalls with the crowd, only up in the dress circle. And not any seats in the dress circle – […]

In the entrance to the Tate Modern gallery is a large hall, perhaps 20 meters high. Its ceiling is paved with mirrors. On one end is a large, yellow sun – half real, half reflection. The room is kept smoky and misty and dense, and the light is dark yellow like a dying star. The […]
