Check this out - I saw this digital camera
that is like a (needlessly?) high-tech Polaroid. In addition to taking photos, it also prints them for you out of an attached printer.
But the fantastic part is that the Japanese commercial for them features the cameras actively pooping the photos out. Incredible! Go to http://www.takaratomy.co.jp/products/xiao
and after the animation loads, click on CM Gallery. Amazing.
I could write for days about what's been going on - my utter elation with the election (and my favorite parody, which refers to Obama as Hopey McChange-Pants
). Being proud to be an American, and a Seattleite. Seeing Gwar. Talking to Don Hertzfeldt
. Checking out 9 books on wedding planning all at once. It's been an exciting couple of months.

Maybe work or school or even... sleeping.
(don't remember, don't remember, don't remember, don't remember - drums)
Leave your name and,
Leave your number...
I'll call you back!
In the bad or
I'll call you back, back, back, back, baaaack!
Those were good times. Check out Telekinesis
- I saw them last week at the Sunset and they were superfantastic!
