Self portrait.

I'm gonna call this one "half moon." And just to be clear, I barely tweaked the picture. A crop, auto color, a slight blue-shift.

This is outside North Station commuter rail, Boston.

"Oh noes! Donnie Deckchair!"

"Did Jessica Simpsons suddenly get Parkinsons in that video?"



I hate you Ella-chan.

More Ella-chan.

Ella's eye.
MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris told a religious journal that separation of church and state is "a lie" and God and the nation's founding fathers did not intend the country be "a nation of secular laws."

Gee. I wonder if this played into her ruling that Bush had won the 2000 election.


See, THIS is why government employees should be atheists and atheists only. Because you can't claim to serve two masters. What theist can honestly claim the ability to ignore god from nine to five?

They're either fakes or liars.

This might be the only interesting shot I took all week...

Heading into work.

Really? No shit.

What's KD Lang? (Art and Stacey, FBC)

Amy playing "Trixie" in the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Harvard Cast (FBC)

The commute home.

Danger Third Rail.

Score tally.

I can't tell if he just won or if he just lost.

Subways. Where nobody talks to nobody.

My photos from this week's Rocky along with a phonecall from Jim means I'm the official FBC cast photographer. Considering what I think of this cast, it's quite a compliment.

I can't say I'm spasmatically thrilled with any of the pictures but they don't suck outright. Here are a few.

"I, like, cry, when I listen to it."

"I would too."

My life has gone completely ass-over-teakettle in the last month. New job, back into photography, re-realized girls exist.

It's good. It's just disorienting as fuck.

Had a long talk with my mother last night. The call was completely positive ...which is odd in it's own right. She still says things that I consider completely bizarre but it doesn't bother me nearly as much.

For example, my mother won't listen to non-Christian music (says she finds it psychically draining), she thinks Ann Coulter is a good thing, etc. The mind-blower of the evening, however, was the revelation that in the late 60's & early 70's she was a feminist.


Whatever. We didn't argue. She still went on a tear about god but that's ok. It's her life. She's entitled to waste it however she likes. She expressed bafflement at the arrogance of atheism but when I explained that I'm an atheist toward her god in the same way she's atheist toward unicorns, that seemed to sink in.

Anyway, here's a picture of my new "office."

I'm the guy who ships everything. Yes I have to commute three hours per day. Yes I'm getting paid less. But I get to work with Ella, I have weekends off (SCUL, Rocky, parties), I'm in Harvard Square daily and there's plenty of room to move up here.

And speaking of religion, here's another faith-based program that doesn't work worth a shit.

First day on new job. It's boring but it has enough benefits to outweight that fact.

So many things are changing in my life. Kinda nice, kinda terrifying.

Here's the family dog, Clarence, who managed to get his tongue stuck to his nose.

It's been three years since I've owned a camera. Photography is the one artistic skill that I have both talent for and interest in.

I'm currently doing a project to take high-resolution, extremely detailed pictures of the human iris. Before you dismiss the idea, go to your bathroom mirror and take a very good look at your own.

I put some sponsors together and lo!, I'm now the proud owner of a Nikon D50.

And so here is Tank saying hello.

The garden.

And Kathy, Ella's mom, my landlady and second mom.

Ever find a shirt inside-out and you reverse it only to realize that it was ok in the first place and now it's inside-out?

I just did precisely that and immediately thought "ctrl-z?"

Am I the only person who does this??

In the last 48 hours I've munged up an important job interview, overdrawn my account to the tune of $140 in fees alone, my ferret died and last but certainly not least, I got doored.

Though I'm kinda proud of myself on the cycling incident. It was ultimately at least half my fault and somehow, somehow I managed to realize that fact and keep my cool. I have all the genteel of a bull dagger at a pride march when riding in moderately aggressive traffic, nevermind seconds after eating the edge of a minivan passenger door.

On Lebanon:
