merlinmann / hotdogsladies

I’m Merlin, and I make my living at sea, catching wild dolphin fish and tracking the elusive “Savant Crabs of the Farallones.” My ship, “The Mrs. Olsen” is based out of Panama and runs on diesel and unconditional positive regard.

I’m just shy of seven feet tall, and I eat pert near my own weight in baitfish by 10 each morning. My teeth are made of fool’s gold but my eye patch was sewn from General Tito’s baby blanket. Legend is I once killed a man—just because I needed a really good cry.

I do know I’m pretty good at Robotron, french kissing, and skimming ladies’ fashion magazines. I drink scotch whiskey, and I shit scotch tape. I’m an excellent driver and I just finished the rest of your cheeseburger while you were fucking around with your cellphone.

This land is my land from California to the New York island, but you’re welcome to stay as long as you pitch in for gas and never call me “Copernicus.” But you knew that.

Let’s do this thing.

There are two people in merlinmann’s collective.

  1. A Giant Pool of Money |Planet Money

    The current housing market/credit crunch is certainly no secret.  But getting a grasp on what happened and is now happening is a real trick.  Driving back from Florida on Sunday I caught NPR’s "This American Life."  I am not always the biggest fan of the show, but this Sunday they laid the whole thing out…

  2. HW 5.1: The Giant Pool of Money

    "The Giant Pool of Money" by Alex Blumberg and Adam Davidson for This American Life

    The first good breakdown of how the 2008 financial crisis actually happened. This is the story of complicated economic systems, but told through characters, examining the motivations and feelings of people at each step of the process. This approach makes the system concrete, relatable, and engaging as a narrative in a way that an abstract description of the flow of money can’t do.

  4. R.E.M. | Out Of Athens

    By the early nineties R.E.M. found themselves one of the biggest bands on the planet. What they had achieved was beyond their wildest dreams but it had taken them over a decade to get there. This RTÉ Radio One music documentary recorded in Athens, Georgia and North Carolina in the US by Ken Sweeney takes the listener on that journey with R.E.M. out of Athens (Georgia). Without slick videos for the new MTV, or support from mainstream radio, R.E.M. built their following playing an alternative circuit of gigs across America as evangelists for this new music. R.E.M. blazed a trail for every independent band to follow from Nirvana to Pearl Jam.
