His chops are too righteous. The helmets can’t handle this level of rock ‘n’ roll.

Wil Shipley Quote

I want to say, in my actions and words, “We are citizens of the world, and as such we all have a responsibility to try to make something better. You can pick what. You don’t have to pick what I pick. Just pick something.”

Hold On A Just A Little Bit Longer

I’ve got one more final and some miscellaneous work to finish up. Not to worry, there are links to add, pictures to post, and stories to tell - just hang on a couple more days. And good luck to all of you on your finals - the pain of the end-of-the-semester makes the Christmas holiday that much sweeter.

Dominique Leon Quote

Taken like a spoonful of Nyquil just before you pass out from flu exhaustion, nostalgia is no harm at all. In fact, it’s positively uplifting, even if that lift up hampers your hipness standing to the point where you might as well be culturally asleep. Short trips to what was probably an imaginary past— immaculate family gatherings around the tree, perfect junior high summers with perfect junior high kisses— aren’t necessarily grounds for an inner guilt trip.

My Favorite Tree

My Favorite Tree

Seven images at different exposures, merged to HDR, colors tweaked, shadows brought out, and a filter applied to cover up the mess. Still doesn’t look the way I’d like. Maybe I’ll get it next year.

Christmas 2006

Merry Christmas, everyone. Do keep your loved ones near as another year draws to a close: in tough times, they are all you’ve got. Speaking of tough times, I’ve been absent yet again not for scholastic reasons but for health reasons. I got a virus that absolutely clotheslined me. I hope you didn’t contract anything like it. And if I’ve seen you recently, I hope I didn’t give this sickness to you.
