Alison Pipitone

Alison Pipitone -

To me she was by far the finest singer at the artvoice music. She is so freakin' hot. I was watching them whiel hanging out with (e:drchlorine) for a second and then he realized he had some unfinished busineess with the drummer and had to leave.


I spent most of the day hanging out with Bekah. Being with her made my day. She is truly one of the nicest people I know and I always feel comfortable talking to her no matter how little we see each other. I also got to meet lots of other people and even saw this kid who was in my gym class in high school. He is going to Glacier National Park to work for a bit. I am mega jealous of him, that he gets to go Northwest.

Bekah never knew I datd Chris back in the day. I wonder if it was a secret for the rest of the world.

Artvoice Festival

It is pretty crowded for 91 degrees but it is nice that there is much more space than thursday in the square, so it is easy to walk around.

New upcomming features

Soon enough you will be able to post to the site via IM. Sorry (e:ajay) , I gave up on the hope of a perl solution and went with PHP ;)

I will begin offering other IM solutions for the site and I can promise they will be faster than the current estripbot which relies on a multi server XML connection. If this makes no sense to you don't worry. Basically, it just mean sthat you will be able to interact more with the site via the AOL instant messenger instead of a browser. n Okay, now I am off to go boating.

Microsoft is so lame, RSS is cool

Microsoft is so trying to make up for being behind the times by making excuses. It is so typical of them to not provide their new Longhorn RSS hard-drive saving feature in Windows XP. That's outrageous. Are they trying to make people think that saving a small text file to a hard drive is high tech - too high tech for windows XP indeed.

I love how they say thatwith microsoft behind it, RSS can become a popular technology. It has already beeen popular for so long.

Thus far, Apple%u2019s Safari and Mozilla%u2019s Firefox browser currently offer integrated support for RSS feeds in their browsers. Microsoft hopes to do the same with Windows Longhorn and Internet Explorer 7.

However, Microsoft said RSS isn't a regularly used technology and with the world%u2019s largest software maker behind it, it could potentially make RSS into one of the fastest growing technologies. "It's cutting-edge technology but not something that would enlist a ton of new users," said Matt Rosoff, Analyst, Directions on Microsoft. RSS could become more popular if Microsoft builds into its Office apps features that consume information published that way, he commented.

Another different concept that Microsoft is planning on with RSS technology is opening it for developers. For example, Microsoft said it would leave the standard open for commerce sites, such as online retailers and music stores, to update the users with latest information.

The company added that it would make RSS integration available to Windows XP users as well. However, users won't be able to store the information locally on their hard drives. That's an exclusive feature to Longhorn, stated Microsoft.Quoted from: CoolTechZone::Microsoft plans RSS features for Longhorn

Ajay's Going Away Party

Last night a bunch of us met at the pink for (e:jay) 's going away party. He is moving the Bay Area near twisted. I hope they get a chance to meet.

We got to meet (e:uncutsaniflush) and his wife Lee. Had a great time hanging out with them and got to take a tour of there fancy new house afterwards. It was really awesome. Hopefully, lee will start a journal too. She definately has lots of interesting stuff to talk about.

(E:mike) got drunk and I had to drive his car home but he seemed like he was having a good time.

I saw (e:jason) for a bit. He also seemed to be having a good time. It's funny that everyone met (e:ajay) on his last day. We mised the presence of (e:holly) . (e:matthew) and (e:terry) were there as well. I got to talk to (e:springfaire) who I must say is looking pretty fine. She is moving to Colden.

(e:rachel) came with her boyfriend and (e:drchlorine) was there as well charming the ladies of the bar. Somehow I missed (e:rebecca) while outside, (e:terry) said she seemed pretty nice. Where was (e:metalpeter) ?

(e:twisted) was only a half hour by plane away. It was too bad she couldn't have stopped out. Her and (e:ajay) could have probably flew the same plane home today.

For a minute I thought this must be how the WELL people felt when they first met. Next time we should have a picnic.

Thursday in the Square

We went to Thursday in the Square to see Animal. I don't really know them at all, maybe that dates me. There were so many people. More than I had ever seen at the event accept for when th emajor headliners have played. The sound was really quiet. The christian protestors were out in full force. A bunch of skater kids got in the way of the "christian" protesters and put up a big sign that said, "Zombie Jesus, he died for your sins and now he is back to eat you brains." This really outraged the "christians" who then stpod in front of them and yelled about how they had to submit or suffer eternal punishment. I wish I had voice recorded it.

The people were really loud and there were so many of them. In the back, by the beer tents, you couldn't even hear the music.

Michael Jackson

Wow this is insane michael jackson looks like he was embalmed in this picture. seriously, do you think his cosmetologist doubles as embalmer / undertaker. I got the picture from


If you have never checked out, you should see all the crazy stuff they have. However, be forwarned much of it is really disturbing. Like pictures of people getting killed.

(e:shawnr) sent me this on boingboing about how the government is cracking down on online nudity. Apparently, also hosted things like but they had to take down all of their naked stuff in response to the new law that requires you have proof of the age of every person naked on your site. That pretty much kills all the rateme sites. I think it is sad in a way because they were also the only ones that were real people uploading the pictures themselves and avoiding the power structure and style of the porn industry.

I wonder if the law was sponsored by the "legit" online porn industry in order to weed out competition. People will just move their sites to places that don't care - just like wih everything else.

Cell Phone Movie of Robin and Terry

I have a secret plan for cell phone based movies. Here is what this morning looked like to me at 6am with (e:robin) and (e:terry) putting on a performance.


It seem slike the only people out at 6am are the health freaks. There were so many of them. I wonder how many die of heart attacks?
