The Kickstand (in Your Face)

In lieu of the usual Sunday material—sorry guys, still busy—my blog director suggested I post something brief about my blossoming new passion: mixology. (Thanks for the idea, Pip!) Continue reading

What goes around…

It feels like it’s been a month since I last posted on here, and not a week and two days, given all the activities of late. I was going to get at least one Sunday post up since having missed last Wednesday, but I was too busy traversing rapids on a tube and saving lives. (That’s not a complete exaggeration—only a considerable one.) Anyways, there are some pretty major developments that have kept me from attending to my often neglected blog; I wasn’t simply turning the music up to drown out its whimpers. Continue reading

Breaking Knowledge

Chemistry is…

At last—the first real Breaking Knowledge post! After delays for various reasons, I’ve finally managed to open the school doors and offer you all a bit of incite inspired by you know what.

As well as chemistry, one could suggest that Breaking Bad is indeed a study of transformation: one that Walt goes through rather rapidly. And to paraphrase the man himself, “the more rapid the change, the greater the explosion.”

Until next week.

Criterion Top 50

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! It’s Sunday again, and of course that brings with it a corralling of stuff that caught my eye over the past few days. This one’s a bit of a heavyweight contender. Let’s get ready to internet rumble! (Sorry Michael Buffer, I know that was lame. And that was probably too many fight night references.) Continue reading

Free Swag, New Work

RIP, James Gandolfini

I’m not one to follow celebrity news and invade on peoples’ privacy like so many of those rags that occupy the grocery store checkout stands, but I was oddly affected—and I say that because I wouldn’t think something like this would bother me—when I heard of James Gandolfini’s passing. Wanting to increase the regularity of my drawing practices, I decided to do an homage to the man that occupied my television screen, and ultimately heart, as Tony Soprano. I’ve flagged his appearance on Inside the Actor’s Studio—which I’m sure will be a great watch—but haven’t had the time yet to take that in.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I don’t feel it’s perfect by any stretch of its definition, but that’s not always the point. Feel free to grab and print yourself a copy at the link below. You know, if you want to. It’s your choice.

Sexy Scripts and Crazy Posters

It’s only been a few days of using Feedly, but I must say it’s a lot prettier than anything I’ve been using to date. I don’t quite understand some of its functionality just yet—it doesn’t seem to list all of my unread articles in one screen in a readable form, to my knowledge, which is a little strange, but it’s working for now. First world problems, am I right? Anyways, this Sunday’s roundup is a little light, but it’s gorgeous out and you shouldn’t be on your computer anyways. But don’t go just yet! Continue reading
