    • There’s no such thing as too many books…until you have to move them all. Oof. Ow. But! After a full day of emptying out one storage unit, packing stuff into a U-Haul, driving over the mountains, and packing half (non-books) into a new smaller storage unit and half (books) home, we are now finally entirely […]
    • Fuck Trump. And if that upsets you, especially because I used such uncouth language, and we on the left must not stoop to such levels if we want to avoid alienating people, read this Twitter thread and re-think your outrage.

    • The West Wing episode we just watched was about filibusters. I started talking about yesterday’s filibuster. At which point Prairie told me to stop talking and accused me of filibustering. (168/366)
    • Chucks of the day (16/?): black low tops with white laces, red inner lining, and red sidewall and heel stripe. #chucks #converse

    • Even after a year, while I really like the results, I still find contact lenses an odd experience.

    • Is the del.icio.us HTML tool broken? I've been noticing some weirdness with my 'Eclinkticism' sidebar, and it appears that the HTML service provided by del.icio.us at `del.icio.us/html/username` may be having some issues. Anyone out there seeing this too?

    • Offshoring Some things from last night's Weblogger meetup that just popped into my head. Politically correct? No. Funny? Definitely.
    • Mixes now Podcast compatible In theory, the post for Difficult Listening Hour 01 should now be Podcast ready, and I'll do the same for all future mix sessions. If there are any problems or issues with this, just let me know, as I've got no real clue what I'm doing here.
    • June Meetup Fun conversations and gadgetry at the Webloggers Meetup last night.
  • 2004
    • Happy Anniversary to me! Today marks three years to the day since I escaped the frozen wastelands of Alaska and starting life in Seattle.
    • Rev. Moon crowned Messiah in Senate office building Should Americans be concerned that on March 23rd a bipartisan group of Congressmen attended a coronation at which a billionaire, pro-theocracy newspaper owner was declared to be the Messiah – with royal robes, a crown, the works? Or that this imperial ceremony took place not in a makeshift basement church or a backwoods campsite, but in a Senate office building?
    • Literary geek (as opposed to literal geek, that is) You are a complete literary geek, from knowing the classics (even the not-so-well-known classics and tidbits about them) to knowing devices used in writing, when someone has a question about literature, they can bring it to you and rest assured; you know the answers.

    • Poems for Laila I discovered PfL when I was in Germany in the summer of 1991. I saw a display stand advertising the release of their second album, and gave it a listen. What I heard was enough to peak my interest, so I bought their first two albums — 'Another Poem for the 20th Century' and 'La Fillete Triste' — on the spot.

    • More constitutional fun By executive fiat, the Constitutional protections of American citizens are now officially contingent upon the whims of the President. So much for a nation of 'laws, not men.' I don't care what your politics are. If you don't find this deeply disturbing...well, I really don't know what to say.
    • Guess I got out in time It was definitely interesting to be able to watch some of the downfall of Andersen from the inside for a while -- and to see the final results as they come down the newswire. Neat stuff.
    • Even permafrost can melt An interesting piece from the NYT about just how drastically global warming -- despite Bush's insistance that it's not a real worry -- is affecting Alaska.
    • Freedom of speech? I welcome anyone to these rallies, and I welcome you to theirs. I hope you will never go to theirs and stop them from speaking. I believe in free speech at every university in America.
