bombs going off in my head
Category: music
Full post might come later. But probably not.

My friend Larry has a photo exhibit coming up in Chicago. If you're in the neighborhood, you should check it out!


Damn, he's been to some amazing shows! Of course, he has a few years on me, and had the good sense to move to SF in the 70s. Which wasn't an option for me.

We saw Of Montreal last night at GAMH. What a fucking great show! Shades of Brian Eno and Oingo Boingo (although you totally don't have to get that to get them). Thanks to (e:Jason) for being the first to clue me into OM, or I might have passed. Indie, Outie, Black, White, Purple. I don't pay that much attention to what "type" of music it is any more. Oh sure, there was a day I thought anything post 80s was crap. Those days are gone. There's still crap, but I'm blown away by some of what's out there. I'm just glad I got to rediscover it.

Tonight is SWR at the Fillmore. Yeah, I've seen them a million times. I could pass this time, but Larry is into their new album (which I didn't even know about), so I'm ready to give them a listen. Plus, we're grabbing sushi in J'town beforehand. What more do you want? ;-)

I'm so jealous that you have access to great shows all the time. God hates Buffalo imo.
jenks - 11/15/07 00:09
I like them, but I think I like maritime even more. And they're on tour too- you should check 'em out if they come there. :)
james - 11/14/07 22:21
I love both Brian Eno and Oingo Boingo. I will check them out as soon as possible.

Scenes from an art de-installation
My life has been chock-full of coincidences lately. When I started working downtown, I decided to have lunch with Mark's Burning Man sculptures. Took a pic while I was at it.


A few weeks later (looks like they're going to keep me, btw), I felt compelled to bring the camera to work again. That day they brought in a crane and a flatbed trailer to haul the sculptures away. I shot a few pics again. It was sad.


I love commuting by bike. That phrase cannot even come close to describing the experience . . . Maybe I'll try to describe it later.

live 4 2day
weird week, in more ways than I can say here.

First, some scenes from a housewarming party:

Kitchen sink. Might as well make it scenic, unless you're oh so cynic?

My new neighbor/building-mate helped me hang my murals at 7am the day of the party.


Proof I can still out-drink someone!

The next day, my boss at Autodesk left the company abruptly. Hopefully they'll want to keep me around for a while longer, so I can make enough $ to pay my property taxes?

ps -- I wish I could show you this fabulous color of Cons I want to buy, but they are hard to pin down. I still have $40 credit to spend. No time like the present . . .

jenks - 10/20/07 14:08
ooh, nice orchids! and I like the murals! We need final updated house pix!
metalpeter - 10/20/07 10:16
Glad you have the murals up they look pretty cool. That picture of the baby sleeping with all the stuff around is funny. That being said that is something that is very safe but looks like the kid is in danger, all he has to do is wake up an find stuff in the purse with out mommy there. But it is still a funny picture.
kookcity2000 - 10/20/07 01:01
hey! I used Autodesk at the juice factory to print out stuff.

All I remember is it was a free download and it worked with the plotters untill they installed pro-e on my shizz.

Anyways, with name brand recognition like that, I hope they're dealin you big bank.

I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor
Category: music
One of the great things about seeing a show on Thursday night in San Francisco is getting to hang with the band at Popscene afterwards. You know, get their autograph, take their picture, make out with them on the dance floor. Ok, I personally didn't get to do that last one, but I was close enough to watch!

I didn't do the first two either, but my friend Brenda did. She promised to email me a copy of the pix. Here's my crappy cell phone pic of her autographed ticket stub in the meantime.




omg, Alex Turner is so freakin' adorable!

p.s. -- apparently, this is the userpic of someone who is completely undatable. I sure wish someone had told that me a long time ago. Could have saved me a lot of time and trouble.

twisted - 09/28/07 11:12
We can do that anyway. Thanks (e:strip)!

p.s. -- I wish you could be here for :::link::: LoveFest's official mega-rave right down the street from me tomorrow. Then we could hit :::link::: Folsom on Sunday.
paul - 09/28/07 10:29
Okay, I am seriously jealous of your dancing lifestyle!

I wonder what the deal is with dating? My theory is it is just the guys you date are mostly from online and men that are online are generally after a specific thing. I totally realize that that is a generalization but there is probably some truth to it. You are fun and cute and you have your life pretty together. You must just be looking in the wrong place.

I wish you lived here. Not that it would be easier to find a boyfriend but at least we could hang out and bitch about men over coffee this morning.

So, my 3-5 week part-time contract with Autodesk has already been extended to 11 weeks full-time, and I haven't even started yet. Sweet! Maybe now is a good time to ask for a raise, haha.

Hopefully my background check will come up clean. As long as they don't find my secret blog I should be ok. ;)

you have a little asian girl on display in your office? sounds illegal
paul - 09/26/07 22:02
Congratulations! --Thanks for the package. I put the little asian girl in my trinket treasure box display case on my mantel in the office.
