Fancy-Schmancy Columns, Gelato and Mitch Hedberg

An excellent comparison of the Democratic and the Republican Conventions.

“Delegates in both cities have occasionally broken into dancing, and rhythm’s challenge has appeared bipartisan.”

Also check out comments and images by prominent stage designers.  Remember all that shit Democrats got for their columns?  Yeah, the Republicans had columns in ’04.

Mitch Hedberg sadly passed away (in Jersey, did you know?), but he’s pulling a Tupac and coming out with a new album this week.

You know I love it: Bethesda in The New York Times! (Ok, not a big mention, but it’s about gelato, so it’s important.)

This article wasn’t exactly ground-breaking, but I love the headline: “Fancy-Schmancy Kids, Now Much Schmancier”

John McCain is speaking at the Republican National Convention right now.  In front of a green screen.  It’s unintentional, I’m sure, but Colbert will be thrilled.  Oh, it just turned blue…Sigh.  I assume that will work just as well.

    a couple of comments on gelato.

    a) great gelato < great frozen custard. i’ve had great custard (i’m from Wisconsin). i’ve had great gelato (see below). i’m an authority on this. i will fight anyone who says otherwise.

    b) given the lack of even marginal custard in the east, Capogiro in Philly makes AWESOME gelato. still not better than Kopps Custard in Milwaukee, but as good of gelato as one can get on this side of the pond. no fewer than two italian friends agree: it’s authentic.

    There’s also another gelato place I recently discovered in Georgetown waterfront. It’s right near all those waterfront grille/restaurants… past the fountain, up the stairs. Well, I certainly sound helpful! I can’t even tell you the name!
    And! I ate it right after a bike ride, so maybe my tastebuds were just happy—-I can’t really compare it to the other place since I haven’t tried it. But they do offer a lot of flavors. Obviously Chocolate Hazelnut is great!! But the pink grapefruit that I tasted was definitely refreshing too.

    Anyone want to skip outta work and go get some now?!
