61. walk it out
everyone's unique viewpoint, without prejudice
writing - criticism
6.15.07 : feature column!

To remind (or, to notify those who already don't know), and in Cliff Notes form, "... from June 1 to June 30... everyone... encouraged to do things a little differently." This being the mandate from our fearless I.M. leader. This of course assumes that I have a set writing style that I can depart from. In a review of my illustrious sixty-six (not counting this gem) column career, I have written six pieces about television, eleven about things I did that were cool, seventeen theories on life...
62. don't hassel the hoff
a discussion on the life and times of david hasselhoff
pop culture - discussion
5.16.07 : feature column!

Unless you're David Hasselhoff, you will never know what it's really like to be David Hasselhoff. You can speculate, you can talk about what he's wearing, but you don't know what it is to be "The Hoff," saving people's lives in a supercomputer on wheels; saving people's lives as a Doctor, saving people's lives as a lifeguard while surrounded by incredibly curvy women; being the King of the Internet. Dallas Maverick's star Dirk Nowitzki, just named NBA's Most Valuable Player, admitted he somet...
63. speaking with a knut
polar bears invite themselves into your home
humor - lifestyle
4.16.07 : feature column!

His name is Knut. You may know him; at only a few months old, some sources say he's on occasion surpassed Britney as the most searched term on the Internet. For those of you not already acquainted with this little bundle of adorableness, let me share a few photos, and more photos. Intrepid Media's ladies have agreed that Knut is sugar-coma inducing cute (for those with premium access, see our boards). I think few would disagree. One Yahoo! reported called Knut cuter than Rachel Bilson , to...
64. thanks for the memories. no regrets.
no one ever says don't quit your night job but i am anyway.
writing - career
1.25.06 : feature column!

It has been my pleasure to serve you all here. However, I must now resign my monthly slot at intrepid media. My reasons are not easily boiled down into any one thing. Part of it is being busy. Another part of it is that the majority of my time at work is spent reading and researching to then write legal papers; papers I hope are so convincing, entertaining and well written, that the Court to which they are submitted will quote all of my words verbatim when writing a decision granting tens-of-m...
65. g-man's pornographic plans
the fbi is supposed to catch criminals. so why are they fighting erotica?
news - criticism
10.19.05 : feature column!

The September 20th Washington Post story, buried 21 pages deep in section "A", led with the headline "Recruits Sought for Porn Squad." This was not to be an elite posse out to relieve sexual tensions throughout the countryside; this was a mandate from U.S. Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales for FBI agents to drop their current assignments and focus on prosecuting "manufacturers and purveyors" of sexually explicit material. This was not to combat child pornography, already illegal under the...
66. tonight we're going to nominate like it's 1971
bush's upcoming two appointments to the supreme court, and its likely non-effect
news - discussion
9.21.05 : feature column!

President George W. Bush has the rare opportunity to offer two nominees to the Supreme Court, replacing the resigning Sandra Day O'Connor and the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist. There are many who fear that these two appointments will have huge ramifications on our future, including some speculation that Roe v. Wade will be overturned. Some are convinced that these two appointments, Hurricane Katrina, and the Red Sox winning the World Series last year are all sure signs that the Apocalyp...
67. travel plans
my affair with driving in new york city
pop culture - discussion
8.22.05 : feature column!

When I travel, I prefer to do it by car. If I’m going on a trip, and time and distance make it at all possible, I will drive. I’ve got a thing about the open road. I had 4 boxes of “Hot Wheels” and “Matchbox” cars that I loved to play with as a kid. My Dad and I would watch NASCAR races frequently. I know that a road trip from New York, where I live now, back to see my family in North Carolina offers me a good time to think and reflect if I’m alone, or to gives me a ten-hour-plus uninterru...
68. talent is in excess
evaluation and admiration for rockstar: inxs
television - discussion
7.20.05 : feature column!

As I mentioned this past December, I dropped Cable Television from my list of monthly expenses. There are a few things I miss watching (Monster Garage, The Shield), but I don’t miss it much. I can’t say that I’ve given it all up cold turkey. With no DSL service in our neighborhood, our only high-speed Internet connection remains with Time Warner cable. This means that a handful of channels still come through that little hexagonal connector in my wall: the major networks, NY1, a bunch of Sp...
69. what are you saying?
on the difference between what is meant and what is understood
writing - discussion
6.20.05 : feature column!

If you’ve ever seen the motion picture Rush Hour, there is a memorable scene where Chris Tucker yells at Jackie Chan, “Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?” If you haven’t watched that film, maybe you understand the feeling anyway. That feeling of not being understood. I know I have. I’ve never resorted to screaming “Do you understand the words…” myself, but there are many occasions in my life where I was horribly misunderstood. I’m not talking about the times I’...
70. the land of the rising star
an american honeymoon in vietnam
general - lifestyle
5.20.05 : feature column!

For my wife and me, traditional marriage was not an option. We wrote our own vows, baked our own cake and saw each other before the ceremony. Amanda even wore a green dress. And much like our nuptials, our honeymoon was not to be a traditional weekend in Hawaii, or a trip to Niagara Falls. We instead chose a 19-day stint in Vietnam. It's been 30 years since the Vietnam War ended. Now, whether you're brushing up on your war history, looking to visit beautiful white sand beaches with deep ...

re: the little red obama

I'm glad someone's paying attention. Obama's biggest problem, I think, is PR.

re: how doing it can help the economy

Even though I'm ambivalent about it.

re: the cylon election?

The column I would have written on the subject. Great capture of the current national mindset... plus Cylons!

re: picking a spouse

absolute truth, and you would know. Thanks for this column!

re: picking a spouse

Brilliant observations, and proof that you have considerable common sense as well (particularly in your choice of wife)

re: no mosque, no mosque

Although I disagree with you, you make the kind of common sense argument I would have made on the other side. If political debate were more like this, we'd be in a lot better shape right now.

re: no mosque, no mosque

I would feel much more charitable towards the G.O.P. if they realized the absurd extent of their hypocrisy.

re: no mosque, no mosque

A little sanity. Thanks.

re: the men who stare at boobs

This. Is. Brilliant.

re: the men who stare at boobs

Funny and provocative. Title is once in a lifetime. Nice work, Jeff.
