Ethan's new theory

Ethan has a new theory. He believes that video games don't cause violence, research does. 

By interrupting people trying to play video games in order to ask them silly research questions, it annoys them, making them more violent.

He also feels that if everyone were busy playing video games, there would be no time to commit violence. We should therefore discourage young people from going outside and interacting with other people in the real world, and instead encourage them to stay home and play video games.

In the category of "Of absolutely no interest to anyone but me"...

Inspired by the gray silk curtains I saw at the Art Deco hotel in LA...

Voila. I'm a man who gets things done.

Once I did that, I was immediately repulsed by our modern white plastic electrical switches. Nothing says "Home Depot" quite like white plastic electrical switches. I can't live my life like that.

Excuse me for a second, I just threw up in my mouth.

I thought, "You know what would really be cool?"

Yeah, baby. Inlaid-pearl push-button switches. Courtesy of

But seriously, I'm really easy to live with. Just ask Jennifer.

What I found in Ethan's pockets

When I took the dogs out last night, I instinctively grabbed the nearest jacket that looked like it would fit.

It was Ethan's.

When I got outside I noticed that the pockets were very heavy...

3D glasses from last Saturday night when we went to see a movie...a bunch of loose eraser...some currency from Nepal that he got from his friend Zoe...and something capsule-like, which I couldn't make out in the darkness.

Oh, my God, is that a pill? Is he buying drugs from Nepal?

I moved under a street lamp to get a closer look.

It was the stub of a Crayon.

May his pockets always be filled with 3D glasses and crayon stubs.

The new movie theater

We went to see "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" in 3D at the Loews theater on Broadway and 84th.

They've replaced all the old theater seats with plush leather recliners. It's like watching a movie in First Class. I suppose.

Eight thumbs up.

"Would you rather have a happy and fulfilling life, or live in the real world?"
