Some quake 3 noobs
Friday, October 27, 2006

These are some people I know from DOV, a DM server in Quake 3. Things would just not be the same without them. Indeed the game would be harder.

Muerte{RSQ}: This young player comes from central america. While his english is very limited, he is still able to say some relevant things about what it is like to be gay in Bolivia. "I will F**K you, some day, I am a man but I still will F**K you."
Dickweed: Dickweed dosnt speak much, he has yet to learn that ~ is a drop down menu. Using T to chat, he is able to grumble some comment now and then about cheaters on his cratering and suiciding way to the bottom of the list.
Chalie: This man is never short on words. From the deep deep deep south (Americas Taint), Chalie comes from a place and time where marrying your sister isnt just an option: its a good idea. Chalie is often torn between his hatred for "dem black folk" and "dem yankee queers", but he daily sings his love for a "little brown jug."

See all the stars (and some noobs) at the DOV server.

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company
Sunday, October 22, 2006
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is the maker of very nice, modest, small houses. Some are just shacks, while the largest ones are full houses that are still "cute". Great for that 3 season shelter deep in the woods or on a little prince type island. Then again, if you are a real man like me you live in an old hogs head by the river and you smoke a cob pipe barefoot.

Have a nice day!
Monday, October 16, 2006

I woke up this morning to a nice image: a big yellow happy face telling me to have a nice day. Now living in the city you get used to many things, including the simple fact that most trees will have plastic bags in them. Indeed these bags can be trapped there for years if no one bothers to remove them. They gather rain, then snow, then bleach in the summer sun, yet generally survive it all for as long as a decade (nerdly observations et. al. P. 24, 25). But never have I had a smiley bag end up in my tree during the night, so that it could shock me in the morning. Let alone have that bag land in the tree in the perfect orientation and facing directly at me. This picture doesn't even capture how perfect the alignment was, it was flat and aiming directly at me until the wind came and I tried to get a pic.

The question now is: should I take it down?

Neck Face
Tuesday, October 10, 2006

Neck face is an artist who has done much work in NYC as well as the west coast. Some very large scale projects can be seen from around the city, including one roof top that has to be 100 feet long. Just a big hairy arm and the tag. I think the style is great.

Trash in our oceans
Tuesday, October 03, 2006
As a person who regularly snorkels and kayaks, I often find the junk left behind by sporting activities along the beaches. The most common items are clay pigeons and golf balls. The set of clay pigeons shown above are a small portion of those shot off during ONE HOUR by several men on Sunday the 1st. Like the golf balls shot into the bay, these ceramic targets do not decompose quickly. They will likely continue to accumulate in the bay and will likely outlive every person reading this post.

The third most common forms of trash underwater are large fishing hooks. I have removed several dozen from one beach alone in the past few years. Many of these are shallow enough to be stepped on by barefoot children, and all of them are made of plastic and stainless steel ensuring that they too will last for decades.

I wonder if piles of golf balls, clay pigeons, or rusty hooks suddenly began to appear on lawns or near schools, how would people react? Few people consider that these chemically harmless clay pigeons are being shot at with lead shot. Countless pounds of lead shot are being released into the bays each year as a result of this. This lead shot can never be recovered, and it is well known that lead is a toxic substance that targets children disproportionately. I would ask people who whish to practice golf or shoot clay pigeons to simply consider going to a range or other designated areas. It is all too easy to fall into an "out of sight, out of mind" attitude about the ocean, but I assure you all of this trash is still out there.
