Carl appears to be experiencing 2000

Carl appears to be experiencing one of those lulls he goes through. Nothing posted for 10 days. Anything might be happening. Anything.

Farewell to Charlie Powazek. Sit 2000

Farewell to Charlie Powazek.

Sit silent.
Watch clouds.
Feel death.
Look at the faces of the living.
Remember people who matter to you, living or dead.
Live.

Wow. Lance is writing some 2000

Wow. Lance is writing some really intense shit these days. I mean it's really good, but heavy, you know?

No, no, not the burrito part. Below that.

Noted with great sadness: Phil 2000

Noted with great sadness: Phil is thinking he won't post anymore. I don't begrudge him the right to spend his time as he sees fit, but I will miss his quiet voice and keen observations. Phil, can't you just change the name from the "Daily Phil" to the "Whenever It Suits Me Phil"?

Listen to the voice of 2000

Listen to the voice of wisdom:
"Whenever I'm having a blicky day, I find that a little cheezy Flash animation (along with regular infusions of caffeine and sweet, sweet lovin') make it bearable."
So sayeth The Brad, so let it be done.
(Except that, given the nervous-makin' effect of caffeine on my system, I'll be drinking decaf yummy coffee drinks and the sweet, sweet lovin' will have to wait until after work).

Some people turn to alcohol 2000

Some people turn to alcohol or drugs or mindless t.v. when they're tired & depressed. Me, I project manage ancient Egyptian cities. Very well, I might add. Still, it would be nice if you'd send me a little note or a picture to wash away my blicky Monday.

Patience is a fine thing. 2000

Patience is a fine thing. Especially around recalcitrant machinery. Seth's site will be down briefly, but he'll be back after this commercial break...

Uncle Larry pointed me to 2000

Uncle Larry pointed me to this article about the "women's vote" in this election year. Interesting reading for anyone, it certainly underscores how much the race between Bush & Gore is about branding and how little about issues. Nader is still looking so good by comparison, but Dubya scares the bejeezes out of me. *sigh*

Our thoughts are with you, 2000

Our thoughts are with you, Mark, as you go through this difficult time. Yes, yes, it's true: DSL = B.S. Hell. And, yes, PacBell sucks!

There is so much waiting 2000

There is so much waiting for you at Lileks! View The Gallery of Regrettable Food! Wander past the Ghost Ads! Marvel at the deep meanings to be found in The Art of Art Frahm! Who would have thought one domain could be home to so much goodness?

Don't forget to visit Brad. 2000

Don't forget to visit Brad. Just be prepared; you never know what you'll run into when you poke your nose in his pixels.

Derek understands the charm of 2000

Derek understands the charm of peeking at folks over the top of his glasses. Have you noticed how he always puts his webcam waaay up high so he can look at you slyly? Isn't that just like a writer?!

I've been wading through less 2000

I've been wading through less spam lately thanks to a tip I got on [damn! who was it? arrgh!] Aphasia's weblog. The tip was to set up a filter that takes anything with "to be removed" in the body text and puts it in a folder titled, in my case, "Probably Spam". Not a false positive yet. I've added "This is a ONE TIME E-MAIL transmission" and "further transmissions to you by the sender of this email may be stopped" to the filter list just to catch those other folks.

Wow! Why haven't I been 2000

Wow! Why haven't I been paying attention to Fury.com? Great stuff to be found here. I particularly recommend conversation 10 in the AOLiza collection. [thanks to Need To Know for the link]

Proof that Dinah doesn't read 2000

Proof that Dinah doesn't read her logs: It took me 10 days to link back to Nikolai's linkfest.

Sorry, Mr. Nolan, I've been neglecting you and about 20 other blogs I was reading regularly. Somehow I retreated to a smaller reading list. Just feelin' a wee bit tired these days...

Yes. It's time. Time to 2000

Yes. It's time. Time to sneak up to him as he stands there with legs and arms spread, eyes closed, waiting for proof that everything sucks.

Time to nibble ratbastard on the other ear

and whisper "mmm, baaastard..."

Eric Harshbarger really really likes 2000

Eric Harshbarger really really likes LEGOs. Most impressive creations, indeed. I particularly like the craftsmanship involved in the decorations on the top & sides of the desk. [thanks to Derek for the link!]

Home decorating tip 2000

Ev's pic of the day, "Coffee Table", has got me thinking about the words "coffee table". It makes me want to buy one of those tables I saw at Cost Plus last weekend with the glass display-cabinet-style tops and fill it with coffee beans. Mmm, coffee table.

Hi! Wow. I've been doing 2000

Hi! Wow. I've been doing all kinds of stuff and I forgot to tell you about it. Oh, yeah work, lotsa work, but it's good, you know? And yesterday i had a great day hanging out in San Francisco with my pals Fil, Jun, Bjoern, BJ, Beverly, and Heather. We brunched in the Castro at Luna Piena, visited the Cartoon Art Museum, got some sensory overload at Metreon, recovered with surprisingly poorly-made cocktails at Montage, found MOMA was packed to the gills, so changed gears and went window shopping instead. Heather was looking fantabulous as any international jetsetter should. I bought a dreamy new shirt. Bjoern wore a really nice t-shirt which inexplicably had some words on the sleeve that might make you think it came from Old Navy if you didn't know he has much better taste than that. Fil drove both ways and we learned a new supa-secret way to get into the Castro but we can't tell you otherwise we'd have to kill you. BJ & Bev were cute as a pair of fuckin' buttons as usual. Darling lil' monsters. And Jun? Ah, well, Jun can play the slide guitar and will go eat sushi with Dinah when she doesn't want the fun to end, so Jun is obviously a man of wit and taste.

To everyone's disappointment, especially his, Edmond was sick and spent the day feverishly reading comics, watching cartoons and snoozing on the couch. Poor Edmond! You know what that means, gang? We better do big fun again when Edmond's better!

Is a trombonaphone that which produces a sound like a trombone?

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).
