"Tears of pain wash the blood away."

A quote from a pbs documentary narrator. A Japanese fighter pilot fights to regain control of his plane after winning a dogfight against an American fighter over Guadelcanal.

What do you do when Playboy (yes, Playboy) conducts a film shoot in your neighbours garden?

bloggidy bloggy blog blog blog

Someone keeps harrassing with me emails and texts telling me to write more blog entries. I am hearby stating to that person that I will not give in, not now, not ever - I shall not write ANY blog entries. Leave me alone. Please.

In other news, Angela and I are going to Summer Camp music festival this Thursday to see Umphrey's McGee, Tea Pot Green and a host of other unmemorable bands. I'll be volunteering at Lollapalooza this year, and you can too, simply by signing up on their website. Ummm what else...considering getting an SLR, not going to Panama can't afford it, might go to California camping in a camper van, there's a hole in the living room floor, getting ready to move to Europe in a few months ...if you need stuff to fill your apartment with, such as a round bed, a butcher block, papa-san chair with stool, TV, N64 with MarioKart and GoldenEye, anything and everything really, put your bids in now, 'cause we got a lot of stuff to be rid of and if you can pick it up it's yours.

Listened to the Wilco and Decemberist and haven't listened to them again since. nuff said.

Some old BCN and Chicago Christmas things are up.

Oli has most of the Lily pictures on his computer, thus the lack of pictures of my child.

For Americans to rid themselves of credit card application mail, see:

Then click on the first option:
Unsolicited Mail, Telemarketing and Email: Where to Go to "Just Say No"

Removal from lists will require a phone call or some letters but the link provides the phone number or, if you're in a mail mood, a template for the letters.

To remove yourself from other mail marketing lists:

Save yourself some headaches, and save some trees for Lily and her short friends of the future.

Everyone poops

Especially Lily.

New vid at last - North Avenue beach

I've just gotten over a long period of dislike for video editing; this is something I rustled up rather quickly to give those back in the UK an idea of how the little one is doing.
