Fall Kicks (at least so far...)

by Peter Rojas

The Science of SleepThe new Engadget – About freaking time, right?

Loomstate Vans -- Even though I don't like Rogan jeans much.

The Science of Sleep – Michel Gondry’s latest. It’s even more abstract and surreal than Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s better, too, and not just because it has Gael Garcia Bernal as the lead rather than Jim Carrey.

Sunday brunch at Babycakes with Jill from Inhabitat, Andrew from The Morning News, and Melissa from Poppycotton.

The season premiers of Lost and The Office - I broke down and signed up for cable just so I could watch these in high-def.

Kanye and Me

by Peter Rojas

Kanye WestHad a close encounter with Kanye West at Barney's this evening. He played it cool and pretended not to recognize me. Still way better than sharing an elevator with Denise Richards and Richie Sambora on my way to a meeting with Sonos at the Trump International last week. That was a little freaky.

Lansing-Dreiden at the Starbucks Salon

by Peter Rojas

Lansing-DreidenI don't normally spend much time at Starbucks -- despite living a block away from one, I hardly ever go, mainly because I hardly ever drink coffee -- but I got sucked into going to one this evening with a free performance by Lansing-Dreiden at the Starbucks Salon on Greene St. here in Manhattan. The Starbucks Salon is a "pop-up" coffeeshop that'll only be there for a few weeks (replacing the pop-up Uniqlo shop that was there for a few months earlier this year), and they're doing their damndest to pull in the young urbanites with a ridiculously full schedule of free shows, readings, and performances. Apparently, it's working.

Note to self

This is Boston, not L.A.

by Peter Rojas

ThisIsBostonNotLA1.jpgLooks like Ryan and I are headed to Boston next month for a conference, and you know that means: Engadget Reader Meetup! We're still on the hunt for a venue, so if you have access to a space, or know of anything suitable (we're expecting between 300 and 500 people), please drop me a line.
