i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
so last night i finally got to see sven's entry for last year's h.p. lovecraft festival! it was really pretty cool: "madness from the sea" is a film composed from silent still images strung together to form narrative w/ soundtrack, ala ken burns. it should win an award for "most innovative use of a song from the akira soundtrack." too bad he doesn't have one for this year!
as i was trying to park in front of sven's house, i almost ran over some pre-teens practicing skateboard tricks in the street. they stared at me as i drove past & through them until i got out of the car, at which point one of them said, "that's the coolest thing i've ever seen on a car! can i play with them?" buh! of course!
today i had lunch with half of the librarians at psu doing inventory. i had only meant to go with 3 of them, but it blossomed into 8 by the time we left the building. i haven't done lunch w/ coworkers in 4 months now & i forgot this is how it works. there should be a corallary: the size of the group you want to come to lunch is inversely proportional to the the amount of people who actually do.
