Jeff gave me a book many moons ago called “The Gendered Cyborg” which is a bunch of feminist art critique. I found most of the book incomprehensible (use smaller words, in context, puhlease), some of it actively offensive (in the ‘inhaling your own exhaust’ sense), and the rest of it mildly disturbing/thought provoking. But if [...]

But I can feel the urge comin’ over me.
AC Grayling is the son of a bitch atheist who is writing an atheist bible. In other words, he’s my competition. (In my tiny, feeble, twitching mind.) And really, he’s not my competition because he’s actually, like, a published author with a track record, and I’m just somebody trying to come up with 52 Sundays [...]
A death metal band with a parrot as a lead vocalist.
So at least I’m being smart and working in the cool of the day. Having accomplished that I can now go about the rest of my day, which involves errands, blech. Katie says she has a line on an apprenticeship position. Later…. Yay, errands all done. Did you know, I didn’t have a single pair [...]
I have not been able to work very hard because even with the ac blasting, it’s rudely hot. Keith and Paul are almost completely moved. Watched Pitch Black yesterday.
As an act of compleat frickin insanity, I ordered Mike a Utilikilt for his birthday. Yes, I ordered it too late, but on the other hand, it’s never too late. Yes, a black one, is there any other kind? A Chinese guy in a kilt? Well, what else is he supposed to wear for occasions [...]
But still pretty funny. This is the Count, who has his song bleeped out in the oddest places.
Great video. It’s all blurry, and yet it is so exciting.
Bruce Sterling pointed to this article. Yesterday the pinball games came home from Victoria. They are Xenon and Star Trek. Xenon needs a lot of work a diode, Star Trek needs a diode is functional. We’re going to get a brass plaque that says, R John Caspell Memorial Pinball Palace, seeing as how the pinballs [...]
46 songs are finished. 95 – give or take – remain. Of those, about ten have been started, but they presented difficulties so I let them slide. No more for today, I’ve been revising and reprinting songs since 6:30 this morning and my brain is fried. Anyway, I’m one third done the writing the songs [...]
Those of you who have heard me sing more than a couple of times will have heard me sing this song – I wrote my own tune for it because I was so struck by the lyrics. Well, I found the original tune! It sounds like a cross between a dirge and a hymn and [...]
Cousin Alyssa is a year old. Pictured here is her interpretation of “Pebbles”. Jerome and Shannon have named their son. He will be Braden. Fine name, wot say ye? ScaryClown is drinking his way across – and being ejected from bars across – Western Europe. In his defence, it’s the guy he’s with that’s getting [...]
That thunderstorm went a long way…. she drove home through it coming back from Pullman. Here is her awesome pic of wheat in Eastern Washington.
