Marlo - Mr. F
Today's Balrog entry comes to you in corners! Corners, they are sharper than balls.
I decided that drowning myself in an ocean of freelance work was the best way to welcome spring - hence the lengthily break in Balrog updates.
My parents are coming to visit over Memorial Day weekend, should be fun as the last time they were in Seattle was when I got out of art school.
Speaking of AIS
, I now officially have my Meow Meow Mix
video playing in their south campus lobby on a loop with two other videos, non-stop through July 31st. The other videos are quite long, so I suggest you press 'Stop' and then 'Play' on their DVD player if visiting, as that seems to do the trick. This is just a precursor to my premiere gallery opening of little 3-D led paintings.
I saw good pal Panda yesterday and am thrilled he's alive! And Garhan
will be old soon, happy b-day Funkle!
Consumer Alert! Corner
Today Alice and I went down to the Capital Hill Farmer's Market, which was cool, but even cooler was that on the way back there was a guy on the street selling a variety of goods... including a unicycle! I was pretty excited. I came back a couple hours later, but to my supreme disappointment, the unicycle had already been unipurchased, which I thought was pretty unicrappy.
Alice and I also went to KFC right before Mother's Day, with coupons of course, and then noticed this little disclaimer at the bottom of the Mother's Day special:
Why would they advertise free potatos and then take them away? Kentucky Fried Bastards.
One of my favorite web sites is Weebl's Stuff
. All the Weebl toons on that site are fantastic, but his new Crabs
one haunts my mind all day now.
A big fan as I am of Pets in Uniform
, there is also the baby rock-poster alternative Rattle-n-Roll
! But I'll take pet over baby any day.
I discovered two bands yesterday, both of which are playing shows in Seattle this Thursday, the same day I already committed to go to some Microsoft seminar thing. Booo. But here they are:
(correction: Bellingham's) premiere pirate music band... with modern themes!
- I'm totally diggin' their sound. Very Rentals-esque. I would actually go see their show before the pirate music show I'm troubled to say, that's how much I dig it. Check out Mr. F
I saw Tron
last night at the Egyptian - so rad. Even more rad was the group that goes to see Tron - there was a line outside the theatre!
I overheard this short conversation:
"Yeah man, I had a couple glasses of wine before heading over here."
"Well don't tell that to Master Control Program!"
This week I plan to replace my silly old Windows computer with some dual-boot Ubuntu/Win XP shizzle.
Now that Jason
has been self-proclaimed as 'bored' we might see some action over at the joint-venture MammalBattle.com
