It's easy being green


Either I'm becoming a hippie, or Al Gore is starting to get to me. I've taken to toting this thing around in my car. Instead of getting plastic bags, I'm telling people I have a bag and shoving my lunch and groceries into this thing. It's not as hard or as annoying as you might think. If I can do it, you can too. Go green!

Cell Phone Photojournalism - Music Edition

I just got some cool little microdisc whooseywhatsey that allows me to download the photos on my cell phone easily to my new laptop. Here are some of the highlights of recent shows.


This photo shows the soundboard guy at the Crowded House/Pete Yorn/Liam Finn show this past Friday. I can only imagine he is thinking that Pete Yorn has too many damn guitars in his little band. It was seriously like Spinal Tap at Live Earth, but way less awesome or necessary. Less is more sometimes. Except when you play 'Suspicious Minds' as your closer. Crowded House was so great that I didn't have the thought to take a picture of them. Sorry guys - good show though!


This is from the July Police show at Citizens Bank Park. It was much better than I, or Mr. Stewart Copeland himself for that matter, ever thought it would be. I embarrassed Spencer by laughing uncontrollably at the unintentionally hilarious visualizations of T-Rex skeletons during the 'Walking in Your Shoes' song. I'm simply incorrigible. UPDATE: It has been pointed out to me that the song is actually 'Walking in Your Footsteps'. Yeah, okay, whatever. The flexing fossils were still dumb-looking.


This was the opening act for Michael Penn at World Cafe Live in April or May. I liked this band, The Last Town Chorus, and they knew how to rock a slide guitar. I tried to take video of Michael, but I had the wrong setting going so I didn't get anything at all. He was awesome though, as always.

Ask an erotic question...

I've been Googling at work for eons and never had such an inappropriate yet funny response. I asked a question about a problem I've had adding a bleed to a document in Quark publishing software. Here is the response I got:

If you have any tips that don't involve gay sex on a starship or something, please let me know.
