Running on Empty

I was a (very) little under pace this week, but it’s also the furthest I’ve ever run. Not bad for the first long run in over a month. Except that I forgot to tape my nipples again and righty actually bled a little.

I am a little worried, though, given that three weeks from today […]

God Doesn’t Care About Your Penis

Lesbian and gay students kissing in front of protesters from Westboro Baptist Church at Oberlin College

Today I went out in the rain, carrying a sign that read “YOUR GOD IS A LITTLE GOD”, to counter-protest the Westboro “Baptist” Church, who apparently drove here from Kansas because a local high school is doing a play […]

I think you’re supposed to play dead.

Not too clear, but you get the idea.

Me, um, driving, apparently

Steering technique? A Yuri joint.

Most of the things you see will be juxtaposed against incredible natural beauty.

The utter lack of safety equipment is just awesome.

Art cars are EVERYWHERE.

The sun sets on the playa

Kite farm

I don’t actually know if this was burned, but I like to think so.

Most fun I’ve ever had with my pants on

Some art is pretty funny.


I did NOT make it out far enough to see if they included Pluto.

Putt-putt in the middle of nowhere

Really sweet bike

Sunset: time to head to Martini Village

Skinny Kitty

Yuri at the Skinny Kitty

Porta-potty prize patrol

The generator WAS running.

Public transit

Two men go into Thunderdome. One man comes out. Then a little later the second comes out.

Terminal City

Nothing like a dust storm to put you in the mood to hula.

Not even as safe as it looks

So dusty

Dan and Dave

Fire spinners

The only thing there’s more of than spinning, is fire.

I miss those crazy bastards.

Thank you, PETA.

Thank you for providing a forum in which I can read things like:

Please honor all living creatures because all life is sacred and we’re all connected to the to one life force which is conscious spiritual energy. Love is the way, kindness, respect, and always, zero cruelty.

And thank you for providing so much […]

Black Rock Bitter

This is actually my first bitter and was kind of a lark; I had no idea so many people would be bringing kegs to Burning Man. At any rate, it seems to have been a hit. It’s pretty great how the simplest recipes generally turn out the best.

UI Theater: iTunes 9 Edition

Until recently, I had only used the word "revolting" in jest.

In case you couldn’t tell, I love grayscale. I love grayscale so much I want to have sex in grayscale, like in that A Ha video. I have the little window widgets in OS X set to grayscale. I hacked OS X so […]

I <3 Mashups

You guys! This mashup CD I got at Burning Man is most triumphant!

(I assume since they were being handed out it’s OK to post it here. If not, someone please let me know nicely.)
