Which is scarier?

Two headlines from CNN.com today – 38 dead after being bitten by vampires bats Clay Aiken is a father Both are horrifying, but I’m not sure which one which will give me nightmares first; rabid vampire bats swooping down on defenseless villages and killing 38, or Clay Aiken having fathered what will probably be the […]

Tom Waits

So yeah, Tom Waits. He was in Jacksonville the night of June 30th. Tickets were expensive as sin, but having seen the show, I would have happily paid twice the amount. For those of you who don’t know, I think Tom Waits is the greatest living songwriter and easily one of the most influential artists […]

My Twitter obsession, continued…

So we’re still Tweeting away at work. We started it as a fun way of connecting to a new audience at work; we push out the usual blood/guts headlines, but try to include some personality with our posts when applicable. Personality – the one thing I think most newspapers completely lack. An example: Joe and […]

Solzhenitsyn

So that old Russian bastard died today. He wrote one of my favorite books from my “childhood”, one I still re-read whenever I can. A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch is an amazing read, even if you don’t take it as a useful history lesson. My copy hits about 150 pages, and it’s […]

Not really, they were giving out advanced screen tickets to everyone who lived in Jacksonville or something. Since it was a screener, the security was tight at the […]

Conquering

Having conquered every other aspect of the internets, I have no choice but to tackled the no-man’s land in our digital war: Twitter Twitter occupies the space between meaningful information and self-masturbation. It’s neither useful nor important and it has never been used in a responsible way. Needless to say, I’m addicted. Think about it […]

Shantytown

Just got back from a farewell party at the Shantytown Pub here in mighty Jacksonville. It’s easily my favorite spot since the dearly departed Red Tub in Cola. Different vibe at Shantytown – it’s more of a “hey there’s three people dressed just like Bob Dylan” than at the Tub, where you were more likely […]

Hello internets!

Nuinca.com is alive and kicking. Well, flailing more than kicking, but still live. You’re looking at a fairly straightforward WP install with just a few modifications so far – including a nifty piece of code that randomly inserts a header image. For the moment, nothing too much to post. As I update the site, I’ll […]
