So it’s that time of the year again. The family’s all back together, the chestnuts are roasting, the air is cooler, the heart is warmer…

Yes, that’s right, it is time for another volume of Bomb Diggity Jams!

(Note: I’d like to apologize for missing out on the Fall edition…things were just TOO crazy this semester and I didn’t have time to put it all together. But that just means next year’s Fall edition will kick that much more ass!)

Well, no time to talk much. I will say that Side A is for the more contemplative/reflective days of winter and Side B is for the more fun, reminiscing/memory-making days.

Directly inspired by “The Campaign for Berkeley”

See more info on my facebook.

Just go to it…see it…comment on it…spread the word…become a part of a movement.

Together, we can become a truly powerful satirical force.

(Well…I decided that I’ll limit it to my facebook friends…but hey we could still be a movement!)


After the rains washed down my first attempt, I set aside some time to put up my spare while moving out of my apartment.




Mission Accomplished!

Songs of the Day:

The Beach Boys – “Be True to Your School”
Ben Folds – “Bastard”
The Beatles – “Money”
Page France – “Million Man Money Hand”
Rilo Kiley – “The Moneymaker” (What UC Berkeley apparently thinks I am)
