70s Music Break

Redbone

We need a little break. Here, enjoy some great music. Redbone is probably the best known American Indian rock band. It’s sad they’re not more widely recognized. The Commodores were amazing! I could listen to all their music over and over again. Santana on guitar, Alex Ligertwood on vocals. Great song. This is not the …read more…

Moving, Again

I have moved again, hopefully for the last time for a bit. I need to catch my breath. I’ll be at this place for a bit, because while it’s not the best place ever, it is roomy. I have a smallish, but perfectly functional kitchen and dining room (complete with an icemaker—time to start making …read more…

A list of things about the new apartment…

My boss asked me the other day what I thought of my new apartment, and that question created a bit of an overload in my brain, so I gave him an inane, but socially acceptable, response. Here is a list of things I’ve noticed about my new apartment. The recycling gets picked up on Wednesday. …read more…

Miscellany #006

When You Are Clearly Overqualified for the Dance Contest If you can’t see the video above, it’s because DreamHost has once again decided to fuck some of its customers, and not in a good way. Do not use DreamHost. While they are sometimes good (and used to be great) they are often a shitstorm of incompetence …read more…

Cowboy Beans

The Camp Wagon on a Texas Roundup (1900)

I first had these at a graduation party a few years back. They did not look very appetizing to be honest (more about that later) and so I skipped over them at first. By the time I found out what they were, there were hardly any left. These are sometimes called Calico Beans, probably owing to …read more…

If You Follow Me on Social Media

This is a quick guide to where I am on social media and what you can expect to find me doing there. This post will be updated as needed. I have a love/hate relationship with social media. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. Sometimes I hate one social medium most of the time …read more…

Today is Monday, July 3, 2017

Here are ten things. Enjoy. 1. I spent Canada Day like a true American That is, I spent most of the day shopping. It wasn’t my choice, but there you are. Eventually, all Americans end up at the mall and/or the liquor store. 2. I woke up alone and embarrassed… I had jury duty earlier …read more…

Ditto Machines Were the Real Deal

Unfortunately, you can’t get that distinctive smell from a video. It was marvelous.

Biology Class Files

I was going through some old boxes, and I found a handful of old biology class handouts from college. Looking through them, I realized how much fun I had being a biology major, mainly because it involved traipsing through some fairly wild countryside. At any rate, I decided to scan them and put them online. …read more…

How to Interact with White People

Well, it seems that the Trump presidency is a thing now. It’s hard to believe that the United States has its first white president, and he’s a Christian, to boot. Soon, white people will rise to the forefront of the power base in the United States, and they will be everywhere. Because of that, I wrote this …read more…

Incidents in the Experience of White Privilege

White picket fence

A good friend of mine recently sent me a link to “What I Told My White Friend When He Asked For My Black Opinion On White Privilege” by Lori Lakin Hutcherson, the editor of Good Black News, and said that as a result of reading it, he finally understood what white privilege is. In that …read more…

Miscellany #005

I have to admit, I’ve tried this once before. Actually, I’ve tried it two—no, three times before. Well, the fourth time is the charm, isn’t it? Actually, I’m still reluctant about links, which is weird, because the whole point of the web is links. Links are why Tim Berners-Lee (god, I can’t wait to see …read more…
