Giant Squid Observed in Wild [Sep. 28th, 2005|11:10 am]

One of those science stories I've been fascinated by for years. The beast was finally photographed in the wild.
the recovered section of tentacle was still functioning," they continued, "with the large suckers of the tentacle club repeatedly gripping the boat deck and any offered fingers.

[music |Nothing In Return- Roky Erickson-I Have Always Been Her]

This isn't likely, with the A's and Angels likely needing all the remaining Oakland home games next week to resolve the AL West--but it'd be sweet.

Also see David Grann's article "Stealing Time: What makes Rickey Henderson Run?" in the September 12, 2005 New Yorker.

And the iTunes calls the music as I cross the 37ibicon.

When I was 36 it played: Heebie Jeebies, Louis Armstrong--My Only Friend, Magentic Fields--These Days, Joy Division

Then Midnight and:

Well chuffed!

Head from Humpty Dance Video

Yes, a really big head. It was used in the digital undergroud music video for "The Humpty Dance". Now is your chance to do the dance. You must haul it away, it comes in pieces, but I don't know how, and can't help you.

It needs to go soon.

Please someone bring this to the desert. Please.
Your chance to do the Hump.

Meme Morefecta? [Jun. 16th, 2005|08:04 am]

[music |Coffee Brewing - Usability Lab - Manhattan]

As Merlin mentioned, I settled into my NYC hotel last night and snagged a quick meme trifecta. I got a bit overambitious methinks when I hoped to exploit the fine mirror to bring in the Leonard Cohen-Ween thing.

Wrens Boarding

This winter I boarded a black diamond run for the first time at Kirkwood, CA at 9300'. Didn't fall. My lucky Wrens shirt kept me safe.

Good Afternoon, Wiffle Ball [Jun. 10th, 2005|11:04 am]

[music |Don't Shake Me Lucifer - Roky Erikson - I Have Always Been H]

I just called Wiffle Ball. There's a birthday party for a friend in Golden Gate Park Sunday, and I'd like to play some Wiffle Ball. We bought a bat and ball at Cliff's a few weeks ago, but when Kim and I played for the first time the ball took one minute to find a pipe in the sidewalk just big enough for it to disappear into--so I need replacements. They answered the phone in Connecticut "Good Afternoon, Wiffle Ball."

[music |I'm So Glad-Skip James-The Complete Early Recordings Of Skip James 1930]

I have this sensation that my back's bleeding between my shoulderblades. Not teaming, more like spots. When I hook my index finger below my collar back there, I feel cooled liquid and pull it out, expecting to see blood. Nothing, not even moisture. So at least I have that going for me.

Sweet Overambitious Friday the 13th Eve [May. 13th, 2005|03:01 pm]
Michael Ferguson
[music |The Beast And Dragon, Adored-Spoon-Gimme Fiction]

This makes for a fun SF night--when lots of good stuff doesn't overlap, and lays out across the city with convenient geographic sequence.

5:45 Yummy Citrus Club for dinner. Noodles and shrimp with sweet creamy coconut sauce. I'll be cutting that sweetness with some Nuac Cham.
7:00 Yummy Spoon rock music. Across the street from dinner. Free. They delight me to no end.
8:00 A drink at Persian Aub Zam Zam, a windowless oasis with a medieval Persian theme. Opened in 1941.
8:30 Hopefully yummy A's game at SF's "A's bar," Thieves' Tavern. Actually painted yellow and green--with pool, pinball, and great jukebox. Not really a sports bar, as much as a flash point for lots of SF subcultures. Tom Waits and the Replacements and Van Halen and singing along to Hedwig. And the troubled A's play the Yankees.
10:00 Our pal Annie djs at the Attic, playing pop/dance/indie/non-indie rock music from the 60's to the hits of today. Always an air of folderol.
12:30 DJ Jester, the Filipino Fist at 12 Galaxies. Jester will drop Pavement onto Willie Nelson and segue to Jay-Z. He does not care. At all. Also free, for the Onion's party. And the Dead Hensons, a muppet cover band plays at some point. Might have to juggle this with Annie.
