SCC's New Home
What better way to celebrate the past year's hard work and accomplishments than with a "casual river cruise".
2010 Summer Outing
You know what's fun? Websites, that's what. Here are some sites we've built (for kicks), web we like and/or web we support.
Of all the places in the world you would never think had a skate scene… Afghanistan has to be on top of the list.
Skateboarding in Afghanistan
We have this debate surprisingly often and with great enthusiasm around the office so we punched out a site. I mean, why not?
Beatles vs. Stones
You won't catch me tossing my camera through the air to get a good photo, but some people are doing it.

Videos we're in. Videos we made. Videos we found.
A big round hole to accommodate a variety of square pegs.
Ania, SCC's very own resident fencing badass, won the Division 1 Women's Epee Gold Medal in the USA fencing tournament in Atlanta.
Ania Wins a Gold Medal!
When we moved our offices to this location this frame was empty on each floor. So we filled it.
In Case of Emergency
Another beer miracle by Pete Crowley. This one isn't on tap yet, but I had the pleasure of tasting it out of the barrel. Should be here any day now! Oatmeal Stout that has aged for 9 Months in a 19 year old Heaven Hill barrel! Coming soon to a center tap near you (if you happen to be standing in our office).
Bad-Ass Beer of the Month - April 2010

This is what happens when the food is so good that the photographer forgets to shoot until after he's eaten half of the plate!

There is no overwhelming need to read the preface. Really.
Buy this book.
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
Interviewer: "So Frank, you have long hair. Does that make you a woman?"
FZ: "You have a wooden leg. Does that make you a table?"
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
There is no hell. There is only France.
To me, absurdity is the only reality.
The Ultimate Rule ought to be: 'If it sounds GOOD to you, it's bitchin'; if it sounds BAD to YOU, it's shitty. The more your musical experience, the easier it is to define for yourself what you like and what you don't like. American radio listeners, raised on a diet of _____ (fill in the blank), have experienced a musical universe so small they cannot begin to know what they like.
A drug is not bad. A drug is a chemical compound. The problem comes in when people who take drugs treat them like a license to behave like an asshole.
Tobacco is my favorite vegetable.
If you wind up with a boring, miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest or some guy on TV telling you how to do your shit, then YOU DESERVE IT.
May your shit come to life and kiss you on the face.

Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff.
Rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, in order to provide articles for people who can't read.
The more boring a child is, the more the parents, when showing off the child, receive adulation for being good parents — because they have a tame child-creature in their house.
The creation and destruction of harmonic and 'statistical' tensions is essential to the maintenance of compositional drama. Any composition (or improvisation) which remains consistent and 'regular' throughout is, for me, equivalent to watching a movie with only 'good guys' in it, or eating cottage cheese.
Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.
A composer is a guy who goes around forcing his will on unsuspecting air molecules, often with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians.
Remember there's a big difference between kneeling down and bending over.
Jazz is not dead, it just smells funny.
Drop out of school before your mind rots from exposure to our mediocre educational system. Forget about the Senior Prom and go to the library and educate yourself if you've got any guts. Some of you like Pep rallies and plastic robots who tell you what to read. Forget I mentioned it. This song has no message. Rise for the flag salute.
The first thing you have to do if you want to raise nice kids, is you have to talk to them like they are people instead of talking to them like they're property.
The most important thing to do in your life is to not interfere with somebody else's life.
I'll tell you what classical music is, for those of you who don't know. Classical music is this music that was written by a bunch of dead people a long time ago. And it's formula music, the same as top forty music is formula music. In order to have a piece be classical, it has to conform to academic standards that were the current norms of that day and age ... I think that people are entitled to be amused, and entertained. If they see deviations from this classical norm, it's probably good for their mental health.
I'm probably more famous for sitting on the toilet than for anything else that I do.
It isn't necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice — there are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.
The rock and roll business is pretty absurd, but the world of serious music is much worse.
I like to watch the news, because I don't like people very much and when you watch the news ... if you ever had an idea that people were really terrible, you could watch the news and know that you're right.
I have four children, and I want them to grow up in a country that has a working First Amendment.
Take the Kama Sutra. How many people died from the Kama Sutra, as opposed to the Bible? Who wins?

... Both require precision, and poetry usually also involves some degree of linguistic compactness. Also, just as software executes within the context of an operating system, poetry likewise “executes” within the psyche of the reader. A few lines in either form can have a profound impact, sending memory pointers in myriad directions.
While it is the context within which either form executes that largely determines the result, even the slightest adjustments in either form can have a significant effect. Subtlety, clarity, and intimacy with the language are all required traits that get amplified through the power of each discipline.
