Tribute to Elliott Smith

Posted by chrisbenson on November 23, 2013 in Uncategorized |

About nine years ago, after Elliott Smith died, I recorded one of his a cappella songs and I posted it to my blog. For some reason, when I woke up next to my laptop a little while ago, it was playing in Windows Media Player.

I couldn’t have made that happen on purpose if I’d wanted to, so I’m not sure what I did, but I’ve worked pretty hard to get it back up here on my blog right now, so I hope you’ll give a listen.

It’s a little rough, but I knocked it out in a couple of hours one night, and I’m not as ashamed now as I was 9 years ago.

BIC came out with a line of pens “for her” that has turned into a bit of a marketing horror story – the mock-reviews are pretty funny:

Joel Achenbach’s take on the Decade

Posted by chrisbenson on December 27, 2009 in Uncategorized |

I really like Joel’s summary of the first 10% of the 21st century. I especially like his closing paragraph:

“As history marches on, this decade will be known for its stumbles and reversals. The scolds and doubters reminded us that hope is not a plan. But neither is despair a winning strategy. The smart move is to look back at the 2000s glancingly, and then turn, with optimism, to the decade ahead.”
