BM 2007
Category: video
Probably the most obvious reason why I don't have a real job is because here I am posting about various topics only of interest to me instead of looking for one. But what the hell.

So, my ex hasn't returned from Burning Man yet, and no word from him. That's not necessarily ominous, since he didn't have a ride back, which means he probably got recruited to help with the clean-up of his theme camp's art installation. Although I don't know how much would be left to clean up from the 1,000-foot fireball of an exploding oil derrick.


Yeah, that looks like a mess. But cool! And maybe a little dangerous? It's not like they can test these things in advance. But I guess that's all part of the experience . . .

In other news, my building-mate did return from Burning Man intact. Thank God! Since the plan I had for his cat to fullfill his financial obligations by co-writing a "Fung Shui for your Cat" book with me has already been done. I'm always behind the curve.

Anyway, as long as I'm posting Youtube videos, I think it's high time you met him. He's the one on the left, and his twin brother is on the right.


Oh, and he didn't actually run into Mark at BM as reported in (e:twisted,40896), he was just kidding about that. Guess that's what I get for owning a building with a comedian, haha.

p.s. -- don't I get a bronze medal for "peep most likely to go bankrupt due to estrip-dependency"? Or maybe that's too long for an honorary title, haha.

I don't run the site but I say why not. However there is a bigger problem as to why you can't get the bronze Medal The Silver and Gold Medalists must be determined first. What if you got the bronze medal and then the next two people wound up being not as good as you then you would have to send your medal back and then the former gold medalist would have to send that out to you and it sure could get awefull messy. Ok so there would just have to be a little programing done but... lost my train of thought so hope everything is going good for you out there.

ticket futures
Category: music
Jesus Christ. Tickets for Morrissey's "4 night residency" at the Fillmore are priced at $65. And they're already asking $158-183 each on StubHub, even though they don't go on sale until Sunday 9/9.

Ouch. Doesn't Steven Patrick realize he still owes me from canceling at Now & Zen Fest 2004? Probably not. Oh well, maybe I should just suck it up and buy two tickets at the Fillmore box office, then sell one for $130 and call it even.

ha ha ha ha... are you whining about tickets to a Morrissey show? How... uhm... appropriate.

I will add my whine to that. Last time i saw Morrissey live i came home with a black eye. You think punk shows are rough, try being in the front 2 rows, close enough to be pulled up on stage by Mozz himself and see how many passive frail vegetarian Mozz-a-bes are willing to elbow the person half an inch closer! ha ha ha!!

No Good Can Come Of This
Category:
I got word from my building-mate he won't be back from burning man until tomorrow instead of today as originally planned. Oh, and he ran into my ex on the playa. Now, I'm sure there are many more interesting topics of discussion at hand than little old moi. But the thought of my brand-new co-tenant and my 7-year-ex burn-bonding and possibly trading life stories without me being there to defend myself (it's all about spin-control) kind of freaks me out. I guess that's what I get for staying home with the cat.

Update: Turns out he was just kidding about running into my ex (I set myself up for that one). I'm so gullible!

Why did you end up staying home with the cat?

(e:Paul), don't worry. your jackets are already packed for UPS to avoid possible catamination, haha.

p.s. -- I have an epic craigslist story to tell, which might be interesting on a slow news day. But considering this is a dual-peep birthday weekend, probably not that interesting right now. Happy Birthday (e:Terry) and (e:Mike)!

First of all it is interesting how sometimes we think alike (e:ladycroft) in that first picture I was thinking the same thing but couldn't of the type of "Big Cat" it was. I will admit when there was a fire going in the back at the party at the 24 last night. I did think of ya for a second (not sure of the real amount of time but I think you know what I mean. Before I saw it wasn't your cat I was going to suggest that it starts its own blog maybe it still could I think it would make cat three.

Oops, that link doesn't work because of the (). Check the breed out (believed to be from Egypt) at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abyssinian_(cat) .
twisted - 09/01/07 15:12
He's an :::link:::(cat) Abyssinian. They like to sit on your shoulders (seriously!), and this one likes to drink from running water -- thus the bathroom sink shots. p.s. -- I relocated my toothbrush to a safe place. If I'm getting cooties from anyone this weekend it's not going to be the cat, haha.
ladycroft - 09/01/07 15:03
what kind of cat is that!? it looks like some kind of oriental? that first pic makes it look like a freaking puma ready to puncture your jugular!

decisions, decisions
Category: volunteer
There are currently 562 [link="http://www.volunteermatch.org"]volunteer opportunities[/link] within 5 miles of my zip code.

Maybe I should start out with something easy like:

"Popcorn maker for movie days at homeless shelter"
or
"Pub Crawl Tour Leader" (?!!!)

Although I was thinking more along the lines of:

"STOP BAY AREA KIDS FROM GOING TO PRISON!"

That sounds like a good use of time. Especially considering a gang of potential lawbreakers is even now whooping it up at the playground next to my building. (No offense, kids.)

Although, some of these other options are just so intriguing, like:

"Shamefree Blogger in San Francisco" (I'm shamefree all right, but not for lack of trying).

"Volunteer Victim for Advanced Medical Life Support Class" (Get felt-up by a stranger for charity).

But mostly I'm leaning towards a rash of postings for the Neighborhood Parks Council's new online Park Kiosk, including:

"Building a Flickr Presence on our New (DRUPAL) Web Site"
"GIS-KML-Google Earth Pro Volunteer"
"Photo-Journalism/Social Documentation"

Maybe I'll do one "fun" thing and one "socially responsible" thing. Since the juvenile delinquents of tomorrow are already at the neighborhood park, that could work out.

Volunteering always seems fun. Eventually though I start to feel ripped off if any of the people I am volunteering for turn out to be making money off of the endeavor. Just make sure thats not the case because I swear it makes it all really agravating. The ooportunities where you live sound really pretty fun at least.
