even I have standards

29 Jul

A whole group of us made the trek over to the Navy Yard metro stop and Nationals Park to catch tonights Philly-Washington game after work. Last time, we walked right up to the box office and bought the five dollar tickets about five minutes before game time. Today, however, we stood in line for quite […]

Friday Random Ten: “…” edition

25 Jul

Been a quiet week; few token (but still pretty nice) posts, lots of rain, most of it over a few hours on Wednesday. Here’s hoping it’s a quiet weekend as well. Here are the first ten tunes my Sansa spat out this morning: “Afterglow” – Genesis “Neighborhood #2 (Laika)” – Arcade Fire “Never Said” – […]

just a quick note from “Home”

24 Jul

…though oddly enough, I”m not at home, but rather the Richmond Ballet lobby. Funny? not really. I just wanted to post a link to this, possibly the greatest (or most twisted) home arts and crafts project I’ve seen in, like, ever…a shoebox diorama in yarn of the Peacock family bedroom from the “banned from prime […]

especially a party that I’m throwing!

24 Jul

I have a small fondness for Rocky Horror, but yeah, I’ve mostly outgrown it; Spaced pretty much nailed the limited shelf life of it’s appeal. Still, the original version is a camp classic that any “hip”, “with-it” student of pop culture ought to be at least passingly familiar with. I say “original version”, because apparently […]

ten years…just wow

18 Jul

As of today, Colleen and I have been married for ten years. I wish I could come up with something clever to mark the occasion, but honestly, I’m a little overwhelmed* by the milestone. We’ve had a good run so far; sure, there’ve been a few bumps, but we manage to get past them and […]

Excessive attention to twenty-nine gallons of water

17 Jul

Oh dear, Chuck’s fish blogging again… On July 5, we went out for fireworks, and I came home with a new 29 gallon fish tank. I was getting a little frustrated with my twenty gallon, which served me fine for about two years, but was starting to feel small (and seemed to kill livebearers in […]

mid-week scattering

16 Jul

some random thoughts for a Wednesday: ♦ – I discoverd this week that one member of the US House represents approximately 693,000 people. That’s a LOT of people for one congressman to answer to. For purposes of scale, consider the imperfect comparison to the UK House of Commons, were each MP (were they distributed by […]

Prog-Rock Astrology

14 Jul

I drew one of the crappy cars in the fleet this week, so I was unable to directly jack my mp3 player into the dash-mounted radio for the ride to DC. Rather than deal with the succession of low-power Jesus FM stations encroaching on the FM modulator once Morning Edition was over, I found an […]
