13-May-2008After Action Report: SIGGRAPH, Petersen Auto Museum, Chris, Canter’s
Last night I went to the SIGGRAPH LA event at Petersen Auto Museum. It was a terrific event and there was much inspiration and food for thought. I met my friend Chris Greazel there. It’s always great to see Chris. Apparently a touch screen “minority report” type interface for visualizing accessories has increased sales of…
Iron Man… the cup!
I actually followed the Iron Man comic for a few years back in the mid-to-late 1980s, so I’m a fan. And it was a hot day, so I splurged on this collectible. A bit of fun, and the Slurpee was delicious.
Several weeks ago, Leah got me a jar of Jelly Bellies for work from CostCo (our houseguests had a membership and we took advantage of it for a wee little while): Here they are yesterday, at the tail end of their existence: I like having candy at my desk. Folks come by, they say hello,…
I could not possibly say it any better than Sassy did in his post: Turkey Time at Vista Seeker: I am a big Thanksgiving fan. It’s a holiday with the sole purpose of getting together, eating, drinking, and being merry. There’s no religious overtones, no consumerism-tainted gift-guilting, and it’s a one-day thing – no endless…
Misc is out of Style
To start with, a random screenshot from a video from 1989: It’s by MC 900 Ft. Jesus. Watch actual videos by MC 900 Ft Jesus below: I enjoy his music very much. He got his name from a vision of Oral Roberts: May 25, 1980, while overlooking his religious center which was in financial difficulty:…
Soyrizo & Eggs
Mexican. Vegan. Kosher. Soy. Awesome.
10-Jan-2004Quorn = SCOP
This stuff called quorn seems a lot like the “scop” (a commodity single cell protein food source found in novels of Bruce Sterling, particularly my favorite, Islands in the Net. And hey, here’s a site called Technovelgy.com: scop. Nifty. Including some other terms from Sterling works.
31-Dec-2003Mad Cow Disease New Year: Animals you eat must be vegetarian
I’ve avoided talking about hot and breaking news for a while. I did not post about the recent quakes in California and Iran; and I’ve somehow managed not to post anything about Paris Hilton. But Mad Cow Disease is a horse of a different color. Go read Alton Brown – It’s a Mad Mad Mad…
23-Aug-2002Power and Weakness by Robert Kagan
There is a great deal of food for thought in Power and Weakness by Robert Kagan, from Policy Review. (via bruce sterling). It’s a long but good article. … The United States is a behemoth with a conscience. It is not Louis xiv’s France or George III’s England. Americans do not argue, even to themselves,…
07-Jul-2002Dial-up in the morning
On Friday, my parents came into town. I’ve been terrifically busy since then. Yesterday we did family racquetball, and then down to Pacific Beach, and then to a Baseball game of my 10 year old cousin Michael. After that we went to Mexican food at Marieta’s in Santee. A very busy day, and I got…
