Last time to promote this, I swear. But today the 2nd half of my two-parter on TV Noir with the guys from @playitbackpodcast came out this afternoon! Give it a download, subscribe to the podcast, and leave a good review on iTunes!

This is my hell for the next 6 hours.

Sometimes you need to start a new book and sometimes you just happen to have gotten your hands on a nice little late 70s Penguin Edition of Graham Greene's 'The Power and the Glory.' Today those two things collided together in the best of ways.

Another shameless plug, but head over to iTunes and check out my second appearance on the @playitbackpodcast! This is the first half of a two-parter where we talk all things "TV Noir". Among other shows, you can hear me fanboy about BBC's Luther and Twin Peaks!

She gets me. That's all there is to it. For Valentine's Day, @andreelynns (world-class spouse, barista, & dog-mom) got me this amazing enamel pin of the one and only Nic Cage. This is especially special because this year is the 20th anniversary of Con Air. I don't know what I've done to convince her to stay around, but I couldn't imagine a better person to have been my Valentine 5 years in a row now. #conair #niccage #valentines

It's always really cool to get to see a friend's dream come to fruition. In all honesty, @kingslee12 is the only barber that I feel like I've had good experiences with. It's been awesome being a client of hers from barber college until now, and I was so stoked to get invited over tonight for a cut while the shop is getting finished up. @thekingsbarbers is going to be such a cool place and I can't wait to be a regular.

It's Wednesday so that means we're doing fancy coffee in the office. Pouring on V60 we've got this sweet Colombian from @westoakcoffee.

Well tonight was wonderful.

Everyone, go give @playitbackpodcast a download! The guys had me on to play a game where I embarrass myself because I can't ever seem to remember actors and actresses names, though I do know who they are.

This morning I brewed the last of my Kenyan Karogoto courtesy of @lacolombecoffee that @andreelynns picked up for me in Chicago a few weeks ago. Very tasty and very grapefruity.

This is my 4th book to start in less than a week, compliments of a lighter workload at the shelter. I watched the film based on this movie back during undergrad during my coursework on the death penalty, and have always meant to read the book.

Interesting reads. Currently free in E-Book form from AK Press until the end of the month.
