It’s been three years since Pet Shop Boys brought us something new and the forthcoming album “Elysium” is proving to be well worth the wait.

I’ve taken to walking in the early morning after checking into the office. Our building is right next to The Yards Park and Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, so when it’s nice enough outside, there’s never a lack of great scenery. This morning was no exception.

Cocktails @ Bourbon Steak DC

My love for Bourbon Steak DC is no secret, but we typically go for lunch or dinner, only spending a few minutes at the bar while waiting for our entire party to arrive.

Fat, Flavor and Cheese

A quote from this article–pointed out by Ellie Krieger on twitter–on American cheese producers and the struggle to slim down their offerings really resonated with me. Most of the article is fairly scientific about cheese production and what the reduction in fats and sodium will do, but anyone who’s tried to eat or cook with reduced-fat or fat-free cheese will probably agree with this sentiment…

“When you take a lot of the fat out, essentially cheese will turn into an eraser…”

tv: Archer’s Burgers?

Fans of Archer, Bob’s Burgers or just H. Jon Benjamin will be very pleased. As an Archer fan I’m really looking forward to this. The team behind Archer has produced a crossover episode–airing in Archer’s next season–in which Benjamin will...

ads: Disney Mobile Magic

While I’m more #TeamMaleficent than #TeamGrimhilde1 this ad for the Verizon Disney Mobile Magic app gave me a smile this morning. It isn’t just the modern “Find me Snow White!” angle, but the father portraying the typical mobile device geek...
