"Hawaiian and Japanese-inspired breakfast and brunch"…

"–Morning Wood."

Booths at BrunchCon gave out swag and sold merch. One vendor had Chambongs, which are like beer bongs, but for champagne, and a table from Lyft gave out totes that read "brunch so hard mimosas wanna find me." [source]

Idea: A LaCroix float – scoops of Halo Top in LaCroix.

How has KFC not rolled out fried chicken coated in Frito-Lay's "Flamin' Hot" powder yet?

Adam Robot (Hamster Style): Jesus some of these sites. Talk about oldddd.

Adam Robot: I still talk to Crawlspace John.
Jon (Adam Riff™): Oh? Where is he now?
Adam Robot: Married. Has a step daughter. Lives in San Francisco. He runs and climbs a lot, drinks a lot of craft beer. Generally seems like he's doing well.

Jon: Jord (WankerCounty), of course, directed Kong: Skull Island.
Jon: Ish (Armegro) is one of Ben's industry contacts. Small world.
Jon: Aaron (The Marked Fool) became a stoner tattoo artist.
Jon: Dan (Just Plain Dan) joined the band Kayo Dot and is battling cancer.
Jon: Clint (Doofyfuel) died of cancer.

Jon: Do you remember Ty (Funky Fresh)?
Jon: Has he reached out to you recently?
Tony (WankerCounty): I do and no, not since the WC years.
Tony: Why?
Jon: Via Adam Riff™, he contacted me out of the blue today from a homeless shelter in Brooklyn asking me to help him find a date.
Tony: Whuhhh.

Jon: Oh, he has an active Google+ page.

Tony: Oh man.

Three months ago, Kalki (The Hoowa) similarly contacted me out of the blue via Adam Riff™.

I knew him as an Indian med student at Ohio State.

Fast forward to the end of 2017.

From…bobmarleyliveforever at

hello old friend. i moved to hawaii. i remember you said your ultimate goal in life was to win an oscar. i have an idea for a movie that i've already filmed on facebook, twitter, and periscope.

basically, what happened is i moved to hawaii after i got laid off in chicago. remember, i'm a doctor. i figured if oprah did it, there must be a reason. then since i was off, i decided to smoke marijuana to help with my anxiety and depression.

i ended up going a little crazy and on one of those marijuana hero adventures that people sometimes get. but i filmed the whole thing. it's kind of like mr. brainwash and banksy but live on facebook.

anyways, i was thinking the clips could be edited to tell the story. but it's inspired by everything that's happened in pop culture since i first met you around the year 2000. it's been almost 18 years man… and aol instant messenger is gone so this is the only way i have of contacting you. think of me as princess leia sending a message to obi-wan… do you want to make a movie? you're my only hope. literally… b/c i pissed of so many other people on my quest to legalize marijuana for doctors.

and that's what the movie is really about.

I visit his listed website: …

I hate me for loving you

I suppose with punk/emo/hardcore festivals going extinct, you gotta take what you can get.

Cameron Diaz is married to Benji Madden of Good Charlotte?

Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie are sisters-in-law.

Why doesn't a reality show following the Madden Brothers and their wives exist? Total Maddens. Lionel is Laurinaitis.

Debuting in 2015, CAMP MARS is the first of its kind Summer Camp Festival.

Festival-goers can join activities such as archery, drum circle, meditation, stone mandala making, dream catcher weaving, nature writing, a speaker series, 2 different performances by Thirty Seconds to Mars under the stars in Malibu, CA, and so much more.

6:00 AM – 7:00 AM – HIKING OR YOGA
12:00 PM – 2:00 PM – LUNCH IS SERVED
5:00 PM – 7:00 PM – DINNER IS SERVED
11:00 PM – 1:00 AM – NIGHT HIKE
11:00 PM – 1:00 AM – STAR GAZING

Forget Total Maddens. Why doesn't a reality show about THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS' SUMMER CAMP exist?

Previously on Adam Riff™:
I want to wear something to said weddings that's interesting but won't irk the bride or groom's parents.

Jon: $68.99 for the suit, $31.95 for the tie, plus shipping and tailoring.
Drew: Bruh, what are you doing? Buy a suit you can get more than two wears out of. A red suit is not versatile at all.
Jon: [grumbling] Why do you have to be so practical?

Jon: That tie on a red shirt in a black suit doesn't work.

Jon: I wish I had money to burn.


Russell: Plus a Superman undershirt.
Jon: Heh. If only I could grow a mustache to conceal.

MLB FoodFest is a two-day, indoor festival in New York City that gives fans the opportunity to try dishes from all 30 ballparks, from the Dodgers' lauded Cheeto-Lote to the Mariners' toasted grasshoppers.

On top of the eats, we'll also be keeping your IG feed fed with a hot dog art gallery, massive popcorn pit, and more.

The Yankees' signature dish is an adobo bao?

I had vowed never to attend another wedding and…I'm attending two weddings this year.

I want to wear something to said weddings that's interesting but won't irk the bride or groom's parents.

Jon: Damn, mariachi suits are expensive.
Jon: You think a mariachi costume is passable?


Jon: 1. Wearing a beige polo to a wedding?
Jon: 2. Assembling a close approximation of that outfit seems arduous.
Jon: 3. Will anyone get the reference? Particularly since I'm not black?
