Hummingbird Hat

November 8, 2009

This guy made a hummingbird hat. A pair of hummingbird feeders cantilevered off a bike helmet. Yeah, exactly what it sounds like. I can’t stop watching this video. The expression on his face. The thumbs-up. It’s like he’s sticking it to every jerk who ever made fun of his Tilley hat and recumbent bike in high school. This is what those inspirational posters mean when they say you should FIND YOUR BLISS.

ROY FOUND HIS BLISS AND HIS BLISS LOOKS LIKE THREE HUMMINGBIRDS FLITTING AROUND HIS BIKE-HELMETED FACE ON A QUIET AFTERNOON AT THE COTTAGE.

(also: there is birdshit on his shoulder.)

(also: on his chest. just saying.)

(also: i want a hummingbird hat, please.)

(also: some hummingbirds.)

I almost died and it made me happy

June 3, 2009

Fourteen years ago I was stabbed in the throat. This is kind of a long story and it’s not the point of this essay. The point is that after my unsuccessful murder I wasn’t unhappy for an entire year.

Interesting article in the NYT.
Thanks to Elliott for the tip.
