Crafting Links

Uncategorized

Crafting is a decidedly feminine endeavor… <!–break–>So, I’m a man, right? However, I suppose I could give myself permission to find that world very interesting, nonetheless. Something I could see myself addicted to, even… well, maybe except for the sewing of skirts and dresses and purses. That’s perhaps not really my cup of tea. http://www.craftster.orghttp://www.getcrafty.comhttp://www.craftastic.comhttp://www.craftology.nethttp://www.craftivism.comhttp://www.readymademag.com

Bought Something Day

Uncategorized

So I’m a little frustrated that there’s this pervasive thought among the hipsters that spending money on things, especially on "Black Friday" is a great sin against humanity. (among these naysayers are the same hipsters, by the way, that have no problem at all splurging on every new gizmo, fashion accessory, web hosting service, Macintosh, and double-priced organic thai take-out… but I digress).<!–break–>Well, I don’t see anything inherently bad with shopping for things which make […]

Went for a bike ride this morning

Uncategorized

This definitely falls into the "what I had for cereal" category of blog entries, but I need to grease the wheels a bit to get back into consistent writing… I went on a bike ride with Steve and two of his friends (who were on a tandem). It was a tough ride for me for lots of reasons: It was windy out there!?Ǭ? How is it that wind can be ALWAYS in your face regardless […]

Tessera: Character description: Iloei & Composer

Uncategorized

I’m currently in the market for a music composer to do a 70 minute score for Tessera. Style="tribal/ethnic fusion electronica" for live musicians. This is a paid commission. Please send a bio and sample .mp3 (under .5 MB for now. We’ll ask for additional samples as needed) to [email protected]… The following isn’t going to make sense. Promptly ignore it… This was a quick description for a character in Tessera, the performance currently under development by […]

RSS Geekery

Uncategorized

If you’ve never experienced reading blogs and journals via RSS, you’re missing out. RSS has dramatically changed the way I interact with the web. Using a feedreader has enabled me to keep up with many more blogs in a much shorter amount of time… while still leaving me with the option of curling up with one or two rainy-afternoon blogs to read in depth. For those of you unfamiliar with RSS, may I recommend: Lockergnome’s […]

They’re GRRRRRRRRR-EAT!

Uncategorized

Here’s a pretty comprehensive gallery of breakfast cereal mascots… …this proves that when some people have too much time on their hands they manage to create some fascinating little obsessions… And the rest of us benefit from their hard work! So I had pretty successfully repressed Count Chocula from my memory for many, many years. The count creeped me out enormously… I used to imagine him flying into my room at night and biting me […]

Now I’ve gone and done it again.

Uncategorized

Well. Here we are. Whoops! Yet another blog software change… and this time with a redesign. I’d appreciate your dropping a comment if it looks like things have gone horribly, horribly wrong. Oh, 10 points to the person who can guess what I’m holding in that picture up there.<!–break–>A couple of very geeky things to point out: The RSS feed is still not 100% the way I want it (I need to hack in some […]
