  • Soy Cowboy: Lily Pads & Rock Cod
    After high school, it became something of a fetish of mine to travel from San Diego to Los Angeles and do various sightseeing. One of the things I (and my friend Chris) used to hit was the Art Center College of Design gallery. For us, Art Center was the pinnacle of cool, of talent, of…

  • Fry’s, El Capitan, Geocaching & My Stanky Feet
    Friday afternoon I answered a tweet of the incomparable ChefJoanna which ended up getting one of our houseguests a very full night of work doing such things as separating crab from crabshell. Joanna needed a replacement assistant for the night, her regular assistant having gotten into a car accident. When I called her up on…
  • Three by Missing Persons
    Missing Persons is not a band I ever got way into, but I remember liking their music. My uncle had Spring Session M and we listened to that record on his stereo when we went to Lake Dolores (a long defunct waterpark halfway to Las Vegas). Keep in mind I was 10 years old in…

  • Misc, Art, Mother’s Day
    It’s been a long while since I did a full wrap up of what I’m looking at and reading. So here’s some miscellaneous stuff I’ve read and thought about and watched and listened to. Tom Bickle asked some really interesting philosophical questions today: How entitled?: What’s in a name? Surely, any communication carries with it…
  • Music Vids of the Day
    Both covers. Both awesome. Blitzkrieg Bop (about this song) by Gus and Fin (via BoingBoing): Rock the Casbah (about this song) by Rachid Taha (via Neil Kramer): Now that should start your day off right. It did mine. Off to the pool! And possibly Fry’s Electronics. Possibly.

They were a rock band that reached legendary status in Japan during the 1980s. Their style of play varied from punk to pop rock and they had fans of all ages. The 1990s band…
  • Like Lee Perry, I’m Very On
    “First, he balances drum and bass, to get a basic rhythm” Ah yes indeed it’s fun times. Video link via Positive Ape Express. Hah! Wikipedia claims Lee Perry‘s birthday is March 20th, like me!!! I didn’t know that. If I did, I certainly forgot it. I’ll have to add that to my already proud list…
