Round-Up: Sat, Jan. 9

Tweet: jimgaffigan: "Did some1 really think naming a restaurant Pizza HUT was a good idea? "We want a name that communicates quality food & 3rd world housing!"

Read: Not a light read, but definitely worth your time. PDF of the first two chapters of the paperback version of Thomas Friedman's Hot, Flat and Crowded. Good summary of the financial meltdown and some big ideas that are being debated about the future of America.
Watch: NSFW Google phone vs. iPhone


Drink: From this clever soda fountain

Listen: Piebald is reuniting at Bamboozle in NJ in May. I hope they make it to LA soon.

I had to read Friedman's The World is Flat in high school, and I actually enjoyed it.
