Gettin’ props from someone i really, really dig

Sasha Frere-Jones thanked me for the Pylon link. Touch me, I’m famous.

Of Local Interest

If you’ve got a minute, let me recommend spending it looking at Jason Thrasher’s Fine Art and Editorial photographs. Jason’s from Athens and a passing acquaintance of mine, and I have seen some of his photos before. I had the abundant pleasure of being there when he got back all of the prints of the […]

Speaking of which, pt. 2

I did some research on tractors before we bought the John Deere L111. I gotta tell ya, having a membership at Consumer Reports has made buying really expensive stuff a lot less scary. The L111 was their top-rated lawn tractor. Consumer Reports doesn’t take ads. They refuse to be intimidated by lawsuits by various charlatans. […]

Interesting how things change

An acre and a half is a lot of grass. Good thing I got one of these, yesterday: Welcome to home ownership. (yes, that’s a cup holder…)

uh, you see what I see?

River of blood, anyone?


I don’t know why. This entry at Billmon caught me off-guard. Pardon me, I need to go close my office door.

I just love the way these people work. So much. Eleven years ago, employees of the Riscorp insurance company made campaign contributions totaling $20,292 to U.S. […]

Oh, this China White? It’s for medicinal purposes

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder what would happen if I offered the same excuses the Bush Administration does for the bullshit it pulls. I mean, following this headline… “U.S. to resume plutonium 238 production-report” with this explanatory paragraph… The newspaper quoted project managers as saying most, if not all, of the new plutonium was […]

I think this meme is my favorite so far

1. What were three of the stupidest things you have done in your life? (I should say that all-in-all, my stupidity has ended up bouncing back and teaching me a very, very valuable lesson each time. So, I don’t necessarily regret the stupid stuff. Like the fixer says- “get addicted to….” but I thank whatever […]
