My 4am Wake-Up Call

Websurfing and blogging at 4:30am after giving up on efforts to get a decent night’s sleep, battered as I am by the psychic tag team of soul-/jet-lag and economically-induced anxiety (241 days to find a job! I’ll never be able to afford a decent place to live!), and what do I run across?

Want To Get Faster, Smarter? Sleep 10 Hours: New research adds to a growing body of evidence showing the perks of a good night’s sleep.

A study from researchers at Stanford University finds that extra hours of sleep at night can help improve football players’ performance on drills such as the 40-yard dash and the 20-yard shuttle. (via NPR.)

The 400 Blows

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
