yranadult: As I’m writing this, I’m sitting in a café in near my friend Cory Poolman’s house in Philadelphia. I’ve been hung over for days, I haven’t showered in approximately that same amount of time and having left my toothbrush at the hotel in DC, my breath is zombie rotten. This current trip I’m on…

yranadult: At the moment when a twenty-something man realizes that he will not live the rest of his life with his full head of hair, he will generally go into an immediate state of mourning for his hair before it is even gone. At least, that’s what happened to me, when, at 24, I noticed that my hairline was…
yr an adult: NEW POST!!! The Seven Types of New... →
yranadult: Writing about adults and adulthood, I’ve been especially interested in the general archetypes of young people that keep coming up. While every person is a unique snowflake and all that, I mostly find that as our generation comes of age, there are only a few different categories that people…

yranadult: If you’re like me, in your late-20s, your summers are probably tent-poled by the celebrations of your friends love-contracts, their fiestas of legally bound love, if you will. I had four last summer, three this summer, and god knows how many I’ll have next year. Just this week, I…
A completely self-indulgent recap of all the...
The first time I went to Europe was a three-week trip sailing trip around the Mediterranean. The trip was financed by grandmother, who did the same for all of my cousins. She was an extremely well-read English teacher, who wanted her jumpstart her grandchildrens’ old world cultural educations. Little did she know that I’d spend most of my time on a boat, debating with my fellow travelers about...

yranadult: Last night, impromptu, I had myself a little date-night at the Kabuki Theater in Japantown. And what’s better for a date-night movie than the new Wes Anderson film, still in limited release? It’s positively quintessential! Now, I don’t like to review new movies here ar yr an adult, because there are already so many great places for quality new-release reviews, but I do like to the...
Amazing low-budget clip for the Lushlife/Styles P track. Proof that our music video directors are failing us.
But back when the “Underground” was tagged in capital letters, the...– A pretty much perfect summation of the era of hip-hop that raised me, from Jeff Weiss’ review of the new El-P album on Pitchfork.

#THINGRECAP: Vice/Intel’s Creators Project in San...
yranadult: by Henry Goldman The Creators Project was a thing that happened in San Francisco over the weekend. Ok. More specifically, it was one of a handful of international branded “experiences”, produced by Vice’s marketing wing on behalf of Intel, who, I believe, make robots. The mission of the Creator’s Project is ostensibly to “celebrate art and technology”, but more specifically, it’s to...
Why it might be time to start listening to...
yranadult: by Henry Goldman I was drinking at a friends house last weekend, and, being millenials, instead of just putting on an album, someone pulled out the laptop-projector combo and we played my very well curated vhx.tv rap video playlist. We stood around drinking, sometimes paying attention to the screen and enjoying the antics of Azealia Banks and Odd Future and Fat Joe, et al. Then,...
yr an adult: Should you go to Coachella? →
yranadult: by Henry Goldman If you’re like me, and have been before, the answer is probably no. Here’s my rationale: Coachella costs a TON of money just for the tickets, not to mention food, drinks, travel out there. ATM fees are, like, $400 alone. You either have to camp, with a bunch of teenagers…
Spread the word: I need a new mentor
yranadult: by Henry Goldman If you couldn’t guess, I started this blog because I’m at a bit of a crossroads in my life. I’m close enough to 30 that I’m just trying to think of myself as already there, so I won’t be really down when it happens in 9 months. I’ve had a couple really cool jobs and worked with a ton of awesome people, but I don’t really have a career path right now. I’ve been...
This robot video is special.
Henry’s alternate reality college scenarios
yranadult: by Henry Goldman One of my favorite alternate reality scenarios to ponder, usually while I should be focusing on the road or the client-conversation I’m in the middle of, is what would have happened if I went somewhere else for college. Now, I regularly regard the decision to go to McGill as the best I ever made, based on the facts that it was cheap, it was a good school, it was in a...

Friends! Myself and a few conspirators have started a new blog/tumblr about being a grown up. It’s called “yr an adult” and you should check it out and follow it, on tumblr or in rss or twitter or whatever you do! And holler at me if you want to join up and help with it!
