  • Why we can’t be friends when you’re in Hawaii

    My cousin is in Hawaii right now, and I have vowed that she and I can NOT be friends until she is home. Now. She’s a professional photographer, so all of her pictures of her little “vacation” are fucking gorgeous, and because I am not at all petty or jealous, I’ve decided that I’m going […]

    The second in the pictoral essay of CFL coaches is brought to you today by the number 7 and by the letter Q. No, there are no muppets in this webisode. Okay, well, there are muppets in *everything* cenobyte does, at the very least, in spirit. In fact, when Jim Henson died, my best friend […]

    This will be the first in a seven- or eight-post series dedicated to the fine coaches of the Canadian Football League. I decided to do this series as a photo essay when I was watching the football and began seeing striking resemblences between certain CFL coaches and folks..well…what looked like them.
