1. Pictures from the Rasputina/Gary Numan concert.

    08 November 2010

    I finally copied the pictures I took at the Rasputina and Gary Numan concert in October off of my camera. I should have written about the show earlier but various and sundry things prevented me from doing so.

    First off, Rasputina replaced Emilie Autumn as the opening act because she is going to undergo reconstructive surgery on her jaw (if indeed she hasn't already). Her tour has been rescheduled for January of 2011. I'm not that big a fan of Rasputina, to tell the truth. I've tried to listen to their work but it never seems to stick in my …

  2. Home IT fail.

    04 November 2010

    As you no doubt have observed I've been conspicuously absent for the past couple of weeks, at least since returning from a long-overdue vacation with Lyssa in lovely Portland, Oregon.

While on our way back from Free Geek (which is run by some awesome folks - I highly recommend donating time, money, or parts to them) Amberite and I stumbled across a cardboard dog head peeking out of a tree.

  4. Spam sushi.

    25 October 2010

    No, really. It's a piece of grilled Spam on a bed of sticky rice and held in place with a strip of nori. The US dime on the corner of the plate is there to give you an idea of how big it is. It's actually quite tasty and not gelatinous at all because it's been cooked, though it's also too large to eat like most sushi. I recommend using a knife to cut it into bite-sized pieces before eating.

    Served with love at Ohana in Portland, Oregon.
