Green Architect
in SFGate

Cool, the founder of this company: good to see this trend. It's an international one. And it's not just at the public/commercial building level. A new site is soon debuting to promote and assist "Green Remodeling".

Damn, that sure was a bloggy post, huh?

i am so cursed i can't even tell you

gawd, it keeps happening! You wouldn't believe the number of times I have lost posts to this blog recently due to Firefox freezes OR oddness of Blogger/Firefox interactions. Whatever, no excuses. I can write stuff in an external editor (my beloved Textpad, f'rinstance) and never have such hassles. Or just write more, cuz we all know that re-writing the paper in one night that the hamster ate, it always gets better (well, at least weirder or at least as weird as HST now writes for ESPN, okay maybe that is only so much and I'm just not keeping close enough score and I wonder who he's voting for, and, oh shit are we still in the parentheses?!?!) than the one you took weeks to work on and had the little frickin' quotes and stuff written on notecards like a dork.

But I still love Firefox, great browser. Keeps biting me though.

I need to re-design this site. Or re-template it at least.

I keep writing posts and then screwing them up. Blogger doesn't like Firefox or vice versa.
I won't get into the details. But anyway. A safe, boring post that I know will get published. And I'll get ambitious again after that.

Cy Hersh speak to the ACLU

In this speech he drops a bombshell that he left out of his New Yorker columns:

And basically what happened is that those women who were arrested with young boys, children, in cases that have been [video] recorded, the boys were sodomized, with the cameras rolling, and the worst above all of them is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking. That your government has, and they’re in total terror it’s going to come out. It’s impossible to say to yourself, how did we get there, who are we, who are these people that sent us there.

We've known for a long time that there were more videos that hadn't been released. And we knew that they had to be even worse that what had come out so far. And there it is, and, no, it can't really get much worse from here.

Am I blogging yet?

Yes, I haven't posted here for 3/4 of a year.  No, I am not off the face of the earth.  Yup, I'm busy.  I'm so glad we can talk like this. 
Capsule update, and promises to write again soon:
  • I am now working at Yahoo! as part of their search engine (technically, I work for Overture, a subsidiary of Yahoo)
  • I commute daily to Sunnyvale, CA in the heart(?) of Silicon Valley (about an hour each way--yikes!)
  • I am not producing any events at the moment--no regular series and no one-off's in the works right now
  • I am not writing enough :-(
  • I AM on a big acting kick; I appeared in an on-stage episode of the Twilight Zone earlier this year and am currently co-starring in the first ever stage version of Zippy the Pinhead (more links on that anon).  The show is going GREAT.  I'm having a blast, and it's been well-received.  You'll hear a lot more on this in upcoming posts.
  • I am off to San Diego this week for Comicon to help Attaboy sell stuff and soak in the pop culture mega-blast!

Expect more posts soon.  Sorry to have been silent so long, though I've been better about my email-listSign-up to it, or just read it online if you'd like.
