This is one of a set of photos that I uploaded to a while back. It's
from a lovely March day that Danielle and I spent at Fort Funston just south of SF, with the Pacific Ocean crashing nearby.

flickr is a fantastic site for sharing photos online. They have all kinds of cool features. I'll post more about it sometime soon.


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

19th Century electronic music

Recently read an entry in Wikipedia about the The Telharmonium which debuted in 1897(!). Interesting stuff, for you paleo-technophiles out there....

morning automatic poem

some sun the only one we get

the fakest English accent you can manage

and the dove on the football on the poster

of the rally of the world that we are sorry

is not our world anymore.

How bad is Bolton? Even worse.

In case you haven't read this, a few weeks old now, from a letter written to the subcommittee considering Bolton to be ambassador to the UN, by a woman who had, um, an interaction with the man...

Mr. Bolton proceeded to chase me through the halls of a Russian hotel
-- throwing things at me, shoving threatening letters under my door
and, generally, behaving like a madman.

That's John Bolton who was the Prez's nominee for ambassador to the UN. A total disaster who served as Dick Cheney's mole in Colin Powell's State Dept. Fred Kaplan from Slate has written several articles which eloquently profile the problems with Bolton.

Read the entry in Wikipedia and Sourcewatch for a lot more info.

That Mac's so Big cuz it's paid for

So if you hear a rapper saying they like Big Macs, don't believe it. They are likely getting paid to say it. Lovely. All that credibility straight out the window.

Stupid Stupid Stupid
Today Is!!! Happy Day of Stupid!

Bishop Joey and the First Church of the Last Laugh will be leading the Saint Stupid's Day parade through the streets of San Francisco. One of the greatest weird traditions of this weird and greatest city. HST would be proud, this is definitely pro weirdness.

For 500837 years of our lords
, Saint Stupid has in the beards of our lords and the streets of San Francisco. Like Karl Malden in a lobotomized yamalke with entourage. Whoooo Booooy!! Am I right?

It's also a ton of fun, and all is sad that I can't be in it today (it's my one religious holiday). I will console myself by gazing at pix from last year's parade. Later check out the after party at 12 galaxies or the Flambe Lounge at Yerba Buena.
