Homemade organic injera


Now that Pal’s Take Away has officially left the building to open their own sandwich shop, the lovely Ethiopian couple who run the market on 24th and York Hampshire have begun a new endeavor by offering fresh, homemade injera! In case you don’t know, injera is that wonderfully spongy sourdough-like stuff that’s used to eat Ethiopian food in lieu of utensils. And they’re selling packs of six for only five dollars!


Look at all that yeasty goodness! Just don’t do what I did and eat the whole pack in one night, because you might feel somewhat, well, incapacitated the next day…

Fayes introduces a Google Glass antidote

Fayes Video (where I worked for a bunch of years around the turn of the millennium) has thrown down the Google Glass gauntlet with a new pint glass that they’ll be selling in the shop. The glasses will be $9.20+tax, so you can buy two of them, hold them up to your eyes and order $1,480 worth of Fayes coffee, knowing you’ve saved a buck or two not buying Google Glass! What a swell way to support a local business!

Thanks, Mike!

DIY secret skate ramp


Seriously, did someone just roll by and pour concrete here to make their own mini skatepark? How does one even go about doing that? And who goes around tagging “Dodger” in this town???

Car Beat: The Best of Both Worlds

Whenever I see a cool car around the neighborhood, I take pictures and send them to my pal Eric up in Portland who runs Other People’s Things, my favorite car blog. He responds with some knowledge and we post the results here and it’s called “Car Beat.” I prefaced my message to him with this: ”Would’ve gotten better pics, but I was hurtling past aboard a vintage open-top streetcar from Blackpool.” Also I sent him a photo of me in the streetcar with a bottle of Jägermeister in my hand.

Here’s what Eric has to say about this vintage Jag:

First, that streetcar needs to be its own post. Looks awesome!

Second, those are nice pics to be taken at speed with a bottle of Jägermeister in your hand (if it would have been Beefeater this would have been a full-on British post…).

Looks to me to be a great example of the original Jaguar S-Type, and while it spawned the Ford PAG version in the early 2000s, this is the legit ’63-’68 variety.

The S-Type is kind of a missing link between what was then old and new Jaguar. Really it’s one of their nicest proportioned sedans, not exactly long and low like the “new” X and XJ6, but not really upright and old fashioned like the old Type II. For me, these S-Types are the best of both worlds, just a bit of a classic look streamlined with modern updates. The low roofline, short overhangs, and subtle fender skirts are really what do it for me. The aftermarket ragtop is a nice touch as well.

Thanks, Eric! (Here are a couple posts about the streetcar from Blackpool.)

Ahhh, late afternoon in the park
