Wow. Neil Gaiman links to Ghost Town, a photo journey through modern Chernobyl. To quote Gaiman, “Without the photographs it would be like reading a piece of post-apocalyptic 60s or 70s SF. With the photos, it manages to become a journey into hell that I wanted to go on too.” [sic] All my regular journals haven’t seen an update today (except for Lileks, of course, but even his update is a shockingly brief […]

The Exorcist in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies. 3:08 p.m. Just updated my links page with links to various weblogs and Mac-related sites I visit, among other sites. I also updated a number of URLs on my anime art links page. 2:39 p.m. Hmm. Telltale Weekly is sort of an audiobook version of Project Gutenberg . Recordings are available in MP3 and Ogg Vorbis formats, with one-minute previews. You have to pay a small […]

what if we look at everything we ever thought we knew about God, and take out everything that was told or taught to us that we didn’t get directly from God, how much would be left? — Richard Dennee

Good luck on Wednesday, Chris! It’s a beautiful day. It’s the sort of day you expect for the benevolent return of Christ — the first day of the year when pants are just too hot, really. I’m only working half of today, since I put in quite a few hours earlier in the week. And, no, I won’t exult that it was worth it; those times stuck in the office, blearily banging on the keyboard, sucked. […]

OK, lots to talk about today. First up, The Passion. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m amazed at its ability to create soapboxes. Every review and article I’ve read about The Passion is a commentary about some aspect of the movie; I have yet to find a straight review of the film as a film, comparing it to Mel Gibson’s intentions. People seem intent on seeing it exclusively through one particular lens. Case […]

I’ve surprised myself by being rather alert today. Considering that I’ve spent a grand total of maybe four waking hours in my apartment over the past three days, I’m impressed with myself. I should be one of the walking dead right now. Work continues to go well, now that I’m not starting it off with more fun personal pursuits. Brief though they might be each […]

I’ve been going through quite a lot in the past couple of days. After an intense weekend, I had an immeasurably more intense Monday Group. Two of the folks in the group are having a really rough time right now. We ended up just talking about what we want and need from each other, as a small community, to support each other and build each other up. It was good, but powerful […]

I literally cannot write a long entry today; I had a wonderful but jam-packed-full weekend, and now it’s the end of the day at work and I really need to get home in time to pick up my materials and head out for Monday Group. Briefly: I had my 10,000th Day Party on Saturday, celebrating ten thousand days alive. I had a great time with about twenty friends, who all chatted and ate. We had glistening ham, a variety […]

Instead of a real update today, I’ll summarize a few things that happened to me yesterday. Which, now that I think about it, is a real update. Yesterday I had a post-post-post-post-post-op appointment at the Lasik Vision Institute, where they checked on my azure blue orbs (thank you, Jim Theis). But not until they’d made me wait for an hour. Oh well; the Highlander series was on the waiting room TV, and that’s […]

March 18, 2004

And just to show you what happens when anyone can self-publish: Strange Comes the Emissary. 1:36 p.m. I thought of a great subject for a journal entry yesterday. And today, of course, it’s gone. Had something to do with Gundam, though, I think. And yes, I remember that I wrote a pitifully short review of it yesterday. Hmm. Umm. I wrote some yesterday. That’s not news, except for the fact that I wrote 800 words in the past […]
