“Then someone will make you.” 2012

RT @glichfield: How Israel treats visitors with the wrong kind of name: pointless humiliation. (via @mohamed)

Reconciling what I hear about the modern state of Israel with my reading and viewing of accounts of the Holocaust is difficult and painful, like watching someone who was mugged go through a terrible and negative personality change.

We are, in fact, just cool enough for this place. 2009

We're in our oh-so-cool room at the Ace Hotel in NYC listening to records - yes, vinyl! - on the in-room turntable, Joe reading Good magazine as I putter on the free internet. Hard not to want to stay at an Ace whenever one is available. So pleasing!

===

Correction: Joe is reading Paper, not Good. At least so far.

On the beach in Zihuatanejo, listening to an American 2009

What animal would have a voice like that? Thin, high, happy bray. The teeth sound larger, the jaw juts to the side, when I look with my eyes closed. Long ears. A jackrabbit. Bugs' country cousin, with that tattoo from his service years in Korea.

"Haw!"

Long loping legs and rough hair, Dürer carving in a table leg at an inn. Beer spilled on the table.

Movies! From Africa! 2008

As part of my continuing project to get my stuff stored somewhere other than some musty backup folder on my computer, I've set up a Vimeo account.

You can see my latest films here:

           

At the moment these are a bunch of short clips from my African trip in November 2005, but if I understand the widget rightly it'll update with whatever I subsequently load on there.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
