Snakes on a train

March 30th, 2006 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

I was on the subway passing through Harlem yesterday when I heard two elderly women talking about the coming movie attraction Snakes on a Plane. This movie is going to make so much money. They’ve got the Jonny demographic, they’ve got the Harlem old lady demographic, that’s covering a lot of territory already. I can […]

This morning, I spoke with a fellow named Andy Carvin for the first time. We’re going to be on a panel together at Vloggercon 2006 in June. He lives in Boston, and since I will up there this weekend, I thought it would be cool to get together for coffee. So I called him up […]

Google Juice: I’m #3 for “Jonny” and “Goldstein” this morning

March 16th, 2006 · 4 Comments · personal meanderings

So anyone who knows me well knows that I have a bad habit: frequent autogoogling. Something in the web-o-sphere has changed this morning, either Google’s ranking algorithm, or someone is throwing some serious links, ’cause when I googled “jonny” I was ranked third, and even more crazy, I got the same result when I googled […]

Mikey Sklar in the New Yorker

March 13th, 2006 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

I kicked a rat tonight.

March 2nd, 2006 · 5 Comments · personal meanderings

I was walking home yammering on the cell phone with my mom when my left foot connected with a soft meaty lump. I saw the rat scurrying away to nurse its bruised side. I just kept moving. [ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | […]
