The Geek in Review Ep. 101 – How Mid-Level Associates Can Thrive at Law Firms – with Jennifer Bluestein

We conclude our discussion with Jennifer Bluestein, author of the book Stepping It Up: A Guide for Mid-Level Law Firm Associates, and talk about how associates mature into their roles as lawyers with law firms.

Weekly Roundup: Active Items

Here’s a shortlist of items that have been winners on clients and forum members recently as they refreshed their athletic and workout capsules. It’s been five years since I refreshed my own yoga capsule, and I’ve found some good stuff too. Personally, I’m a big fan of active items from Zella and Sweaty Betty, and many of our forum members swear by Athleta’s active bottoms.

Gillmor Gang: Get Back

Today we sat on the deck with our daughter Ella and her boyfriend Nick. Knowing of my fascination with all things Beatles, Nick gave me a Japanese 45 of Get Back flipped with Don’t Let Me Down. His gift coincided with a 5 minute cut of material from a newly authorized production of a new version of Get Back, the film. A short history follows. In the waning days of The Beatles’ partnership, the band decided to return to a more slimmed down production style, minus overdubs and plus a live feel....

Whicker: Erik Affholter has more on his mind than a catch in 1987

Upon further review, Erik Affholter still doesn’t know. He does remember lying just beyond the end zone at the Coliseum, with UCLA’s Marcus Turner nearby and a football in his hands and a Cardinal and Gold frenzy surrounding him. “Suspended animation,” Affholter said, 33 years later. “I remember looking up at the referee and thinking how mad I would have been if I hadn’t caught it. The call? Honestly, it could have gone either way. Instead, it sent two football teams different ways. UCLA was fle...

Why Volkswagen stopped making its most iconic car, the VW Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle sold over 23 million units in its 81-year run. From its dark origins in 1930s Nazi Germany to the "Summer of Love" in 1967, the VW Beetle is one of the most recognizable cars ever made. In 2019 the final Beetle rolled off the line in Puebla, Mexico — but after eight decades, has it finally hit the end of the road? Scott Keogh, Volkswagen America CEO, says "never say never."

Janis Joplin & Tom Jones Bring the House Down in an Unlikely Duet of “Raise Your Hand” (1969) If you’re a fan of Tom Jones and you don’t care who knows it, then no one needs to justify the jovial Welsh superstar’s lounge-soul covers of pop, R&B, and rock songs to you . Certain purists have been a tougher sell on Jones’ act, including, in 1969, Neil Young, who joined Jones onstage once, and only once, on the This is Tom Jones show and immediately regretted it. But who cares about Neil Young’s cranky dislike of commercial television...

Watch Rare Footage of Jimi Hendrix Performing “Voodoo Child” in Maui, Plus a Trailer for a New Documentary on Jimi Hendrix’s Legendary Maui Performances (1970)

In June of 1969, the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, the band that introduced the sixties to its reigning guitar god, disbanded for good with the departure of Noel Redding following a messy Denver Pop Festival appearance. The story of that gig sounds so apocalyptic—involving heroin, riots, and tear gas—that it reads like cosmic foreshadowing of the tragedy to come: the decades' greatest psych-rockers go out in a haze of smoke. A little over one year later, Jimi is dead. But if he seeme...

It make me think of this song lyric that I heard over and over when I was young: 'Come on fathers, and don't hesitate/To send your sons off before it's too late/You can be the first ones in your block/To have your boy come home in a box.'"Things written by me, just now, in comments to a post on Facebook, put up by my son John, linking to and qu...
