Movember is quickly winding down.  I am just a handful of dollars away from $500, so if you have the time, please hit my Movember page and drop a few virtual pennies into my virtual jar.

My Movember Page


I went onto Movember to find my page and I entered “Jeremy Baker” into the search.  There are two other Jeremy Bakers on this planet growing an ugly moustache for prostate cancer.

They are:

Jeremy Baker from Turner, ACT, Australia.  I am not too sure what ‘ACT’ is?  Australia Capital Territory?

The dude hasn’t done much with his Movember page… but has raised $100, so good on him.


Jeremy Baker from Wantage, Oxfordshire, England.  He is doing a little better than our Aussie cousin and has raised $200!

Wantage is famous for being the birth place of King Alfred the Great!


Zoner Capt. Kirk sent me a startling public service youtube video today.


I went and listened to, then downloaded a couple a Guns & Roses tracks yesterday.  At first I hated the record, but DW and David Eleanor swear by it… so I gacve it another spin.  I don’t hate it now… but I still don’t like it.  Sorta average.  The track “Chinese Democracy” is growing on me.  Dave says I need to get the song “Better” which is number 3 on the album.   He is telling about an insane guitar part that sounds like a xylophone.

Then he told me about this book “Last Exit to Brooklyn.”  whoa… I think I’ll need to check it out. He no steered me wrong with his last recommendation, “Night.”

We need a David Eleanor Book club to battle Oprah!

Go with yourself.

I thought I liked oysters, but it turns out, not so much.

I went for a beer last night with Double R and his woman friend Katie.  We got to talking about Double R’s infamous birthday party back in 2006 (slaps for shots, deep fried turkey, mud stains on the floor, blood stains on the floor, David Eleanor past out on the grass).  One of the highlights was Drunkle BBQing up some oysters in the half shell.  Coated in garlic, butter, spices, bacon, and who knows what else.  I really like those oysters.

Fast forward a few months and David Eleanor is dating my sister, and the three of us hit Ferris’ for some baked oysters.  Now those were good too.

But today, I tried some fried oysters and I felt a little ill.  Too bad, because oysters ain’t cheap… even though they made me a little sick really sick, I kept on slurping those butter soak seafood stinky fatty things back.


I did buy a mighty fine raincoat today.  Our jar budget is finally paying dividends.  Corj and I looked in the bank account, and after making our first wedding payment, we still had a couple bucks.  Monsoon season is starting on the Island and I commute by scooter.  I had a raincoat, it was this wonderful dated piece that my folk bought me back in like 2000 or so, for Christmas (maybe older).  The coat served me very well over the years.  The zipper was broke, and it was worn in places, but it still kept me fairly dry and I am a dude, so I don’t update my wardrobe too often.  A couple weeks ago, I was helping my brother build a deck and I left the coat behind.  It wasn’t such a big deal because September has been so sunny, but now I think the sun is gone and won’t be back till June.  I need a coat.  I bought a coat.  The end of my story.


Remember this film?

The second half of the trailer for American pie features the song “laid” by British group James.

Everything you need to know about the band James.

Turns out the group has a new album and Pitchfork actually liked the the thing.
You can have a listen to some of the new tracks on their MySpace page.


The dude from Mastadon sucker punched King Khan!


Travis Barker (Blink 182, +44, Transplants) got in a plane crash today!
