I exist only in other worlds.

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

My, but it’s been quite a while since I’ve made a new post. Almost a month gone by–particularly long for me. What in the hell have I been up to? Truth be told, nothing much. Work for work. Some play. Some work at the house. And an awful, awful lot of gaming. I’ve had gaming […]

I can’t believe people pay them to do this.

What does it say, really, when Geraldo is the sane one?

Guitar repertoire and 300

Friday, April 6th, 2007

My highly-limited (and largely partial and/or off-beat, often simply grinding to a halt while tab is consulted) repertoire (and for those not interested, skip straight to a review of 300): Smoke on the water Boys don’t cry (cure) Wish you were here (pink floyd) Belief (john mayer) blue skies (pink floyd) trust (cure) a forest […]

More Cure.

More pictures on flickr. 12 of Robert Smith in total. They were taken with no flash–even after dark. Some have been processed a bit, and some were pushing the limits of the digital zoom, but there were at least a dozen salvageable with technology. And, damn, we were /that/ close. It still floors me that […]

The Cure for the wintertime blues.

Sunday, March 25th, 2007

My beloved friend J. and I headed off to warmer climes for a few days. Neither of us is particularly fond of anything South of where we live, but there was this one thing in Florida that could have easily driven us there, regardless of the sweltering springtime heat. And that would be Robert Smith. […]

24: season 6, hour 13

Monday, March 12th, 2007

Ah, the return of some familiar faces tonight… and the appearance of some, erm, new ones. God, I hope Schroeder lasts approximately as long as Darlene did. Remember Darlene? Three episodes and blown up in a bomb? Sigh. The good old days… Aaaand, the Vice President is a crooked and evil bad guy. Man, whereever […]

Lifetime vamp

Monday, March 12th, 2007

The channel generally for ladies (and fans of really terrible movies staring Delta Burke or a young Kirstin Dunst) has a new self-made series. Blood Ties comes on on Sunday nights, and is aimed squarely at the Buffy/Passions fandom. With the softcore porn of the best bodice-ripper. And the cheezy goth overtones of… I don’t […]

Welcome home, there, little lady.

My first guitar. Are you supposed to name them like cars?

We have a Henson.

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

I was watching this evening’s episode of the Colbert Report, because the special guest was someone familar–BoingBoing’s other editor (and the editor of Make, the awesomest magazine on the planet), Mark Frauenfelder. And as I was watching Colbert and the editor/writer/crafter whing marshmallows at one another, it occurred to me. Frauenfelder is our generation’s Henson. […]

24: season 6, hour 12

Monday, March 5th, 2007

The halfway point of a season of 24. Damn, I knew Bashir was going to buy it. And they totally think he did it. Awww, poor hot Bashir. Who jumped on the bomb to try and save the President. Awww. But, uh-oh, now they really want Lennox. And Chad Lowe is facing a tough choice. […]
