I just moved to Reno to attend UNR. What's happening around here? I'm very excited about the move. We're discovering a pretty cool arts and crafts scene... Never Ender and La Bussola and such. We're also looking for some studio space to do bigger things, since we figured that an acetylene torch in t...

Yeah, I was wondering if the Hash House Harriers were out there. I've never come across them, and it seems like they'd fit right in. What do they drop instead of flour?

Mildly curious,

and a damn good salad, too.

I was hunkering down in my tent during last year's dust storm toward the end of the week. I was bored, having read eveything there was to read, including the food labels and the "Keep fire and heat sources away from this tent" label. So I scounged up a mask and went walking. I pointed myself down th...

What I love about Burning Man

I like to pop by the e-Playa while I'm at work, for a quick moment away from, well, work. Then I see in depth discussions about what sucks about Burning Man. So! I love, love, love reliving the approach to the playa. It's almost 6 am, and the sun is thinking about getting around to rising. I've just...

I saw one HUGE dome in '02, at one of the rave camps at the 2 o'clock end of the city. I was rather....distracted, but my impression of it was 25 feet in diameter, quite possibly more. (My frame of reference is my house, a two level geodesic dome house, wood and plaster and everything. It's 25' acro...

He could've sung the phone book, and you'd buy it. If I'm not mistaken, he did an excellent version of "It's not easy being green" once. Or perhaps the Muppets have at last overloaded my brain.

It is nice to see all the flags at half-mast for him, tho.

here's a headtrip for you...

I finished reading House of Leaves a short while ago, by Mark Z. Danielewski. That is a freaky book. It's enough to make you scared of the dark, but not for any of the usual reasons. Very, very good though. I'm reading Always Coming Home right now, by Ursula K. Leguin. It's pretty cool, a collection...

I see stickers on cars from time to time, on my absurd commute. Usually I'm too spaced out to do more than grin or shout "yeaah!" to myself as they drive past me, which I figure is better than the alternative of 'love tapping' them from behind to say "Hi."

The sky isn't really blue this evening, it's just kinda washed out, white-grey, stark. It's like the heat and the dryness have leeched even the memory of blue from the sky. The heat-haze outlines all the surfaces: tents, cars, the Man himself, in unknowing imitation of the flames to come. Up till no...
