A resolution for the month of November: Every day at three p.m. instead of having that second cup of coffee I’ll go to the gym and either swim or lift weights for an hour. I did that just now and feel like Big Bird after a run-in with Snuffleupagus (‘Snuffy for short,’ says wikipedia).

An hour at the gym means an hour more to catch up on a long list of neglected podcasts. Today I finally heard Diplo’s rendezvous with Francophone Africa [via Mario]. That shit is hot!!!!
