I ran across this on the Tool Website, and given that I spent my formative years rockin’ it in Gwinnett County, GA, I just couldn’t resist. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

JULY, 2009 e.v.


What’ll ya have, what’ll ya have?
Frosted orange or Coke with lime?
Walk a heavy dog with a bag of rags
And we’ll get ya to Duluth on time!

What’ll ya have, what’ll ya have?
Wrinkled strings my dog-eatin’ brother?
C’mon, we’ll get ya to that Tool show
But I don’t know nothing about a cover!

What’ll ya have, what’ll ya have?
Trouser-chili or a yellow dog?
Ring one while there’s still some sun
And we’ll thrown in a toasted bun!
(Knowing that you’re on the run)

What’ll ya have, what’ll ya have!
All the way for you and your lover?
A Varsity orange with two straws,
Blame God if there ain’t no cover!


Call in siiiick so I can shred da rad with mo’ rock, pish!

For my birthday this year I got one of the coolest gifts ever, and you’re lookin’ at a close up snap of it. That’s right, a fully customized batch of m&m’s, tailored just for yours truly. A photo of me and juniorflav, the phrases “call in siiiick!“, “shred da rad“, and “mo’ rock pish” (all coined by some of my closest peeps), done up in Mardi Gras colors. So! done did an outstanding job on this one!!

SomaFM Needs You!!

If you want some kick-ass web-based free streaming music, then look no further than SomaFM. I’ve been listening to their “Groove Salad” channel for more than 1/2 a decade now, and it’s done me right every time. And if you become a regular listener, you really should show a bit of love with a $$ donation every now and again. They’re totally listener supported, and are completely worth it.

SomaFM independent internet radio


code.google.com, which is typically used to house open source software for geeks like me, has teamed up with Radiohead to do something untypical (which is somewhat typical for both parties) and has released “House of Cards” up on http://code.google.com/radiohead. The technology behind the video is insane and the distribution mechanism for getting it out to the masses has not attempted by an artist before. Ah Radiohead, changing the game yet again.

From the press release:

No cameras or lights were used. Instead two technologies were used to capture 3D images: Geometric Informatics and Velodyne LIDAR. Geometric Informatics scanning systems produce structured light to capture 3D images at close proximity, while a Velodyne Lidar system that uses multiple lasers is used to capture large environments such as landscapes. In this video, 64 lasers rotating and shooting in a 360 degree radius 900 times per minute produced all the exterior scenes.

I don’t know what most of that means, but I do love me some FRICKEN LASERS!! Any of you fools out there still non-belivers?

Diving is rad.

On a recent dive we actually got a bunch of good photos from a cheap digi-cam in an underwater housing. Of course I fried the thing on the next take, but at least there are these (and no Photoshop majik involved!!)…

Robots Done Good

The droids at stickerrobot.com done did release a couple of pretty cool stickers as of late. The first one is in support of favorite10.com, which is hands down my most frequently returned to website right now (if you want to know why, then contact me and I’ll fill youse in), and the 2nd for our boy Obama. If the Obama design looks familiar, then you nose Shepard Fairley. If not, then you must OBEY. Quality stuff all around, and we can only…

Slice of SF History

A building just came down at the corner of Howard and Hawthorne Streets, across from the world famous(ly bad) strip club, The Gold Club, and in its wake was exposed this old skool advert. Something tells me that it’s not going to be around much longer, so I’ll enjoy it while it is. Wonder how old it is and what’s the story behind it…
