Tweet A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times published an amusing piece by Tim Kreider called, “A Man and His Cat.” It’s about being a Crazy Cat Guy, which Kreider was, even if, unlike me, he didn’t post photos of his cat online. (He did sing to his though.) While reading the essay, […]

Tweet While traveling in Europe last month, I did some things that I’d wanted to do for decades. I visited Liverpool, which I first dreamed of doing in 1980. I’m glad Mark Lewisohn, the author of Tune In, the 2013 book about the Beatles that prompted me to finally take the trip, saw that I […]

Tweet As I mentioned, the Women’s Jewelry Association Gala took place Monday night at Pier 60 in New York. The WJA describes itself as “a networking organization dedicated to enriching and advancing the professional lives of the women in the jewelry and watch industries.” I call it a great opportunity for me to meet up […]

Tweet Look who has joined my flat-faced animal family! This is Purrkoy, an Exotic Shorthair kitteh from breeder Lynn Cooke of Callyn Cattery. My older kitteh, FitzRoy (aka #thecatinthebowl), who joined us in 2012, has quite a few Instagram cat friends who were from Lynn, so that’s how we found her and Purrkoy. The name […]

Tweet Today, Eryn and I showed FitzRoy my sterling-silver SRSLY? necklace. “Bat it with your paw if you think this necklace is awesome,” we said. We passed the inspection and can now brag that this necklace has been certified awesome by a cat. You know a cat like this wouldn’t steer you wrong. Follow FitzRoy […]

Tweet I keep flipping through photos from my first trip to England in 1983, hoping to find the picture of my encounter with Roger Daltrey. I kept passing over one in which I was standing by a life-size model of a old-time train conductor; the white t-shirt I was wearing in the shot didn’t interest […]

Tweet The past two weeks have been wild around here! The big news was the announcement that the Columbia Daily Spectator — the undergraduate newspaper of my alma mater, Columbia University — would focus on its website, while reducing its printing schedule from five times a week to once a week. As the chairman of […]

Tweet Gorgeous blogger Faux Fuchsia made me LOL with the comment she left on Tuesday’s post about my work history. It reads, in part: “In the 1st law firm I worked at in 1994, the one where I wished I’d be hit by a bus on the way to work, because it was that bad, […]

Tweet My obsessive photojournalist-like behavior at concerts has paid off! Recently, Eminem’s Facebook invited people to send in concert photos for use on Em’s official Tumblr. I sent in the ones from the G-Shock concert I went to last August and one popped up on Tumblr today. CLICK HERE TO GIMME SOME MORE LOVIN’! You’ll […]

Tweet The puppets of the play Avenue Q sang, “The Internet is for porn.” But, according to my scientific research totally made-up numbers, only 40% of the Internet is for porn. Forty percent is for cats. Ten percent is for idiots to write irrational comments on news sites. Five percent is for very young people […]
