Mad Men Sucks

Thu, 22 Mar 2012 20:47:22 +0000

When I say Mad Men sucks, I’m of course not talking about the excellence of the content. I’m talking about the number of people who actually watch the show, compared to the combination of its consistent quality and other-worldly media coverage. In the weeks leading up to the return of the show, Don Draper and [...]

Herschel Plays Twenty Questions

Mon, 19 Mar 2012 02:27:38 +0000

Here’s an exchange between my five year-old son Herschel and his mom while they played a game of Twenty Questions over dinner. Herschel: Are you blue? Mom: No. Are you orange? No. Are you yellow? No, and the color is irrelevant. Are you white? No, and I just said the color is irrelevant. What does irrelevant [...]

Who Gives a Truck?

Fri, 24 Feb 2012 01:33:28 +0000

In his latest piece for Slate, Matthew Yglesias argues that cities are threatening to “kill the food truck revolution with dumb regulations.” Many of these regulations are enacted in an attempt to protect local food businesses, but Yglesias suggests that keeping food trucks away from restaurants that sell the same kind of food “would be [...]

Love, Sponsored by Hallmark

Tue, 14 Feb 2012 21:43:16 +0000

This morning I asked my three year-old daughter if she’d be my Valentine. She answered: “No, I’m Jonathan’s Valentine.” And thus continued a never-ending streak of Valentine’s Days marred either by rejection or by a disappointment in my failure to mark the occasion with appropriate gusto. I’ve always assumed my love for my wife is [...]

Herschel Learns a Lesson

Mon, 23 Jan 2012 04:26:26 +0000

Today’s 49er game was a tough loss, but it was worth it because my 5 year-old son Herschel learned an important lesson about sports and life. Right after the game, I took him to his room, sat him down, and gave him the speech. Me: “Son, last year at this time, the 49ers were already [...]

Hitchens Stood

Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:30:07 +0000

For several years I’ve been a member of a San Francisco group called the Luncheon society. Every month or so, the organizer invites some notable person — an author, a scientist, a politician, an astronaut — to join the group for lunch at a local restaurant. In all the years I’ve been attending these luncheons, [...]

The Return of Amigo

Tue, 29 Nov 2011 05:02:13 +0000

My hair was getting too long in back, so I took the same walk I’ve taken every now and then for the past twenty years. I went looking for Amigo. I didn’t expect to find him. The last eight or ten times I’d walked the four or five blocks down to 2nd and Mission, I [...]

Herschel’s Trophy Moment

Wed, 16 Nov 2011 22:43:40 +0000

There have been a few minor rough spots during our son Herschel’s first months of Kindergarten, so my wife and I were pleased to see him having so much fun during his soccer awards dinner, where he was set to receive his first trophy. There were five tables of teams and the evening’s MC was [...]

The Hersch Goes to School

Tue, 13 Sep 2011 15:22:04 +0000

By the time Herschel got home from his first day of Kindergarten, we only had one question: How was Henry? It all started about two weeks prior when I initiated my fatherly duty of getting my five year-old son (and me) ready for the big transition to a post-preschool life. I was determined to do [...]

That is So F’ing Metal

Fri, 05 Aug 2011 22:32:50 +0000

McSweeney’s was kind enough to publish my piece on my experiences at a recent heavy metal festival. An Open Letter to the Guy Who Puked Next To Me at the Heavy Metal Festival. Enjoy.
