Salon: The 15 most hated bands of the last 30 years. I should do a big giant guilty pleasures post because I apparently do not hate the right things? Whatever.

I wonder if Tested still thinks this is the best external hard drive.

Since I put a little image of an Edward Cullen doll on my holiday cards, I can appreciate a T-Rex in a Save The Date.

This is oldish, but Pharrell crying while people dance to “Happy” is super charming.

I’m so happy that the females on SNL are so strong right now. Go watch “Do It On My Twin Bed” again, because it is funny.

Speaking of amazing females, let’s watch Gabi’s “Flawless” creation again, because damn.

Instagram Roundup #101

by Jamie Sanford on August 27, 2014

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Look at how tiny!

Hung out with William during the superishmoon.

Went to Summerfields in Margaretville, NY for lunch on a absolutely stunning August day.

We were in Margaretville to find some of the graves of my ancestors, since a few generations back they all lived there. We even went to the Sanford Cemetery! More on the ancestral hunting soon.

Skip ahead a week to more estate sailing. Can you handle The Magic of Scarf Fashion? I love it.

One of the houses we visited had the most amazing woodwork.

Went to Medieval Times again. We were in the red section.

Formula One -Derland: Belgium 2014

by Jamie Sanford on August 26, 2014

Click here for all Formula One-related posts on JamieSanford.com.

Check out the Formula One wiki for more information.

I skipped a review of the Hungarian race. However, it was pretty awesome. Lewis Hamilton finished third after starting from the pit lane because his car caught fire during qualifying. He keeps showing us over and over how he is one of the best in the field. Here’s the wiki for the race.

Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium is perhaps my favorite track of the year? Check out this amazing elevation change at Eau Rouge. (source)

Gorgeous.

(source) Here’s Fernando Alonso driving up Eau Rouge. Tragically for him he had a penalty because someone from Ferrari got too close to his car before the start. I think he would have had a podium finish. The guy is so damn talented.

So, it rained during qualifying, and Lewis Hamilton got to get through it without having a car malfunction. His teammate Nico Rosberg managed pole position, with Lewis right behind him. I was already worried, because these two do not get along. Mostly, I have been unimpressed with Nico’s behavior.

(source) During lap 1, Nico tried to pass Lewis, and didn’t quite manage to get around him well enough, and then clipped Lewis’ tire. He broke his own wing, but managed to quickly pull himself to the front since he had punctured Lewis’ tire. Lewis fell back and had to ride a flat back to the pit lane. He never managed to catch up too far and retired later in the race, earning no points. Nico ended up finishing second to Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull, who no one is upset with.

(source) He’s always having a good time!

(source) Results.

The post-race was filled with drama, naturally. Nico Rosberg was booed on the podium because the fans were all convinced he did something shady that knocked Lewis out of the race. Then, we heard from Lewis:

“We just had a meeting about it and he basically said he did it on purpose,” said Hamilton. ”He said he could have avoided it. He said ‘I did it to prove a point’. He basically said I did it to prove a point.

“And you don’t have to just rely on me. Go and ask Toto [Wolff] and Paddy [Lowe] who are not happy with him as well.”

“I was gobsmacked when I was listening to the meeting. You need to ask him what point he was trying to make because he just came in there and said it was all my fault.”

Oy. After this, people online questioned the truth of what was said. Awesome Formula One commentator Will Buxton had this:

So the people who were mad at Nico before he admitted to wrongdoing are REALLY pissed now. How unsportsmanlike can you get? We watch drivers go wheel to wheel all the time without hitting each other, these are professionals at the top of their sport who know how to race without putting anyone out for the day. Nico knew exactly what he was doing, and I hope he is severely penalized for it.

Back to racing in Monza in 2 weeks.

Instagram Roundup #100

by Jamie Sanford on August 22, 2014

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

My first Instagram photo was on July 7, 2011. 1901 photos later, I’m still really into Instagram.

I started these posts a while back, and so for #100, I’m sharing my top 20 favorite Instagram photos, so far.

Wow, the old iPhone camera was weak. Vegas vow renewal, 11-11-11.

David during a visit to his storage unit.

Me and a beluga whale. These creatures are magical and while having an absolute interaction with one at the Mystic Aquarium was super delightful, I now understand the error of my ways and feel guilty about going there. I will no longer give money to places that house captive whales or dolphins.

Triumphant moment at the drive-through ATM.

Feeding Randall the giraffe at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa.

Sunflowers after the state fair.

William in one of the best aprons ever.

Experiementing as Batman in Target.

Flatiron, obviously.

Dinner in Savannah with Mom and Dad.

Collection of photobooth strips from Sara and James’ wedding.

Insane sunset in the Badlands.

Fun on the wine tour.

The best day for a little hike.

Birthday outing with Will and Pete.

My buddy Cooper and his giant ears.

A brief stay in the paradise of Bermuda.

Post-dinner group selfie. (I think I can’t do “ussie.”)

A new one, and already a favorite.

You can buy a Currently list from Rukristin Papercrafts to fill out and utilize on your social media channels, etc. You can get a digital version as well, which I used here with Photoshop (and the font of my handwriting) to create.
