the keys to the lamborghini:

ideas in year shorthand...

reading this piece on slate this morning, i recalled a discussion i had at our xmas party last weekend (btw, thanks to those who made it out). chatting with TB and his lady RHB, we began discussing what the shorthand will be for a given year in the next decade. "oh ten" works, and "oh eleven" and "oh twelve" sort of work. but there's no way people will say "oh thirteen". will it just be "thirteen", like "october of thirteen"? will it be "aught thirteen"? that sounds a little more dignified. but then again, using "aught" there sort of conflicts with labeling the present [ending] decade as "the aughts". not sure how this should be handled going forward. TB proposed we could call the coming year "zip ten" and go forward from there....then again nobody would say "zip thirteen" so that's probably dead in the water.

sorry to nerd out, but any thoughts on this?

South Central

According to this article, one can soon take a tour of LA's gangland. My favorite quote from the article:
"It wasn't long ago that organizers decided against a plan to have kids shoot tourists with water pistols, followed by the sale of T-shirts that read: 'I Got Shot in South-Central.' "


I thought Deuce Deuce and the Sauce would appreciate this one. You guys missed the trucker movie festival at one of our local theatres.
