Some kind of record

I just have to add this.

Rendering the name of the model from today’s Profile post was slightly tricky, given that many of the language’s letters don’t appear in the standard English/Latin character set. I was up to the challenge of course, but while writing read more

The shit I get up to

So let me tell you a little story, which will not only illustrate what it takes to compose a specific photo, but presents the question of how much of this is creativity with attention to detail, and how much is pointless obsession ;-)

The previous post was a book review that had been started, as I said, many years ago and I somehow didn’t get around to finishing it – it just kept getting read more

Cleaning out the fridge

I mentioned earlier that I might do this, and you’d hoped that I wouldn’t, I know, but here it is anyway because I’m sadistic. In sorting video clips, I realized I had a handful (well, 25) that I’d been pleased to get – they just weren’t enough to justify editing and uploading, and while I’d waited to see if I’d get some more to make a complete read more

Tag ’em and bag ’em

Yes indeed, it’s time for the annual tag roundup, where we examine a collection of solitary and lonely tags to… uh… find out just how lame my humor is. I know you’ve been looking forward to it.

To explain for those who have, amazingly, never encountered this blog before: Tags are those little descriptors at the bottom of each post that help people find related read more

Should’ve known better

I was trying to put together an illustrating image for an upcoming post today, first pondering what I really wanted to portray, then hoping I would get the conditions needed for the shot once I settled on the composition, but this was not to be. I would have known that, had I checked my calendar, because today is National Fail To Produce a Necessary Illustration Day, a holiday that read more

Um, one “adult,” please

Today is the twelfth anniversary of my first blog post, and that means it now has to pay adult prices at the movie theaters – even when it can’t see adult movies, be tried as an adult, or any other functions claimed by that exalted/overrated classification. Kind of a rip-off, really. Just for the perspective, this is itself the 1,934th post, but only the 1,877th that contains nothing read more

Too cool, part 44: “Chopsy”

First off, I apologize for anyone who’s ever seen this before, but not that much, because chances are you can watch it again without being bored. As internet popularity goes it’s a little old, but I doubt it received as much attention as some woman j’accusing a white cat (yes that’s a word.) I’m still not going to have a lot to post in the foreseeable future, read more

The anticipation is killing me!

No, not christmas, though I am looking forward to that, because we have this tradition of reenacting giving birth in a rickety food trough full of hay while curious sheep keep nosing around, and it’s hilarious – it takes talent to adequately produce Joseph’s expression of being cuckolded by a deity. No, not winter season, because fuck that. No, not even the eventual read more

Just so you know

A couple of years ago, I used this valuable space to opine about acting as (as in, pretending to be) an auto mechanic now, I presently feel the need to express similar feelings about working on computers.

Now, don’t get me wrong: I work on computers all of the time, when you define it as, “engaging in tasks that are facilitated or necessitated by a computer,” and read more

Just… one, really


I have a handful of photos from an outing today, but I’m winding down and still have other things to get done tonight, so this is a quick one that’s been sitting in the blog folder. Stay with me, it gets much more exciting.

Okay, no it doesn’t. But stay with me anyway.

When I’m sorting through recent photos to see what to keep and what to discard, right before shifting them read more
