Dreams DO Come True!

Ok, so once again, I’m in this NJ coffee shop. Something beautiful is happening.

There is  this stigma about coffee shops that paints them as one half beatnik hipster jazz dork hangout and one half shoeless, unwashed hippy headquarters.  One tenant of this perception is the “guy quietly strumming his guitar,” a would-be fixture in every aloof coffee barn in town.

Now, I’ve been in a shit-load of coffee shops and in none of them have I encountered a dude strumming guitar. Sure, I’ve been to some open mic nights, but that is different. However, today, at this very coffee shop, not 10 feet away from me is a floppy-haired, checkered shirt wearing hipster dude with a banged up acoustic guitar and he is strumming it softly! Oh my God!

And, even better, he totally sucks! He isn’t even playing a song! He reminds me of one of my little cousins, just banging willfully away at the family piano, making sounds for the hell of it. He’s like that, except he’s doing it to a guitar and he is probably into Fleet Foxes. This is awesome.

I mean, who the fuck plays acoustic, anyway?

Killing time…or KILLING Time! (Alternative headline: Drugwolf Forever!)

It’s been hours (literally hours!) since this blog has been graced with something related to Star Trek and, by extension, something related to Science Club.

Here to rectify that situation is a video of the noble Enterprise crew saying silly things. The best moments come when the nonsense words seem to coninside with what the character’s mouths seem to be saying. Granted, that’s the whole point of the video, but certain parts pull it off better than others (“Buuurp.” “I smell that!”).

Also, shouldn’t you be listening to “Drugwolf” right now? Or, at the very least, poorly recorded Science Club demos?
