Here Comes the Sun

So, a week ago Wednesday I bought a new camera. It's a new 7MP Fuji S700 camera and actually looks and feels like a film camera (I was getting very very annoyed with the tiny canon that felt like it was going to break or something if I looked at it wrong). It was a great deal ($250 normally, $200 on sale). So I got it. There's a whole backstory here about how it was on a credit card and a bunch of fun stuff like that, but that's really besides the point.

The point is, for what I spent (or will spend when we pay off this card) on this camera, I got a great still camera that I am supremely happy with. To the point where I am enjoying taking pictures again.

So, to that end, amidst the 3 weeks of off and on torrential downpours, I found some times when the sun was peeking through.

These pix were taken with the new camera and were taken on my way to work. I am quite confident in saying that these pictures blow the sh*t out of anything I could have taken with my other camera(s).

I don't think I'll be resurrecting the photoblog anytime soon but I will probably be posting more photos on this one as I take them.

And now...for your amusement......let the day begin.




Hope your day starts off just as bright.

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. So..um. Yeah. That's all I got.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis. So...no, I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

A Tribute to Limozeen

So...you may recall that I recently got my very first P.O.S. Electric Guitar back. And you may also recall the folly with the "amp" from Freecycle.

And now, dear readers, I will let you in on the dramatic conclusion to those harrowing tales.

From Bob at work I recently got a Vox Pathfinder 15amp which looks a little (exactly) like this:
I have to say, the amp freakin' rocks. It's got built in tremelo, and this killer overdrive feature which makes the thing sound crunchy as all get out.

So tonight, I decided to try it all out. The amp, the POS Guitar, the FAB distortion pedal (purchased the day of the Sam Ash incident), the Alesis drum machine and the Alesis io2.

The results are just...well, funny.

I give you the theme song to the soon to be hit WB-Series, "My 'Tard Husband." I call it "shortbus." Take a listen here. It's about 3MB in size and 4:14 of unbearable cheese (and the guitars get markedly louder at about the minute mark-you've been …
