Hey sports fans! There’s a new basketball podcast out there from 1/2 of the people that brought you What is This Podcast About?, 1/2 of the people that brought you Pantsuits, and the Australian behind The Suburbs.
The first episode kicks off with some in depth analysis of the NBA season answering tough questions like “will Chris Paul be named MVP?” and “what is the most adorable thing will Ricky Rubio do this year?”

I own too many books. The only thing keeping this list from growing is that I am too poor to buy any more at the moment.
Blessed ink and paper, these are the books I own and have yet to read. Warning: this list may have been drawn up while I simply stared at my bookshelf and is likely incomplete.
To quote the title of Mike Hingston’s fantastic book blog I have “too many books in the kitchen!”
I have to get back to reading now or I’ll never be free of these paper-bound shackles…
UPDATE I’ve made the inevitable mistake of adding books to the reading list through the combined efforts of generous friends’ lending practices and Christmas wish lists. I will never be out from under this pile…
yao ming recently launched a public awareness campaign in china targeting the nation’s consumption of ivory and rhino horn, after having spent twelve days last august in kenya and south africa.
poaching kills more than 25,000 african elephants annually, while 668 rhinos were killed last year in south africa alone, meaning that if current trends are not abated, both species will be extinct within our lifetime.
according to shark fin traders and hong kong import statistics, yao’s previous campaign against the shark fin trade is credited with a 50-70% reduction in chinese consumption last year.
"no one who sees the results firsthand, as i did, would buy ivory or rhino horn," yao stated. “i believe when people in china know what’s happening they will do the right thing and say no to these products."
he continued, “we would be outraged if people were killing our pandas. we should be just as upset with what’s happening to rhinos and elephants in africa.”

happy birthday america.

I’m on a podcast!!!!
If you haven’t noticed by now I love two things. 1. The sound of my own voice and 2. BASKETBALL!
So here I am guesting on ‘What Is This Podcast About?’ talking basketball with two of my Canadian buddies who I met over Twitter: Amber and Stu (and I subsequently met Devin via the podcast)
If you love theories about BJ’s curing serious sporting injuries this podcast is for you.
Oh Hey! I made this thing with some friends of mine, so you should probably check it out. Then you should probably rate it and take the time to write nice things about us (or mean things about our audio quality, if you’re a jerk like that).
