  1. Animals, Sex, Meat, and Morals

    Kind of a stream of conscious thing on the ethics of eating meat... Why is it acceptable to kill and eat animals but taboo to have sex with them? Let's see, behavior is formally regulated by two major institutions: government and religion. Also, rights are regulated/granted/defined by these as well. Both animal and human. At the begging of civilization, before there was a concept of animal rights, humans were thought to have dominion over animals. They could use them for food and...
  2. Beautiful Baritones

Michael Stipe - R.E.M. Listen to his fantastic voice! Morrissey - The Smiths Listen to his beautiful...
  3. Symbols

    Symbols can be powerful—evoking strong emotions to rise to the surface from some deep, out of view space. I have been subjected to three Confederate flags this last week—all were flying from long wooden poles alongside the US flag—attached to the beds of four wheel drive trucks, validating at least one stereotype perfectly. OK. This is Arizona. I am not in the South. The West should not feel any affiliation or loyalty to the Confederacy. What exactly are these fools embracing and expressing...

    Been Listening to The Cure's Disintegration... this is the effect...

  6. Humble Abode in the Thames Estuary

    I could live in one of these beauties, no problem. All I would need is a boat to get to the mainland. Want to move into the one next to mine and be neighbors? Rusty Maunsell Forts The Maunsell Forts were small fortified towers built in the Thames and Mersey estuaries during the Second World War to help defend the United Kingdom. They were named after their designer, Guy Maunsell. The forts were decommissioned in the late 1950s and later used for other activities... pirate radio...
  7. Scrapbooking: Hobby or Mental Illness?

    Due to my lack of finding full-time work, I recently took up a hobby. It all started with my purchase of a Canon MP560 with print, scan and copy capabilities. Just as a goof, I printed out some digital photos on good photo paper and to my astonishment, really liked the results. The printer even had some easy software already installed for printing the photos in different sizes, filters and in black and white. That’s when I decided to dive into the wonderful world of scrapbooking where I can...
  8. Amazing Cinemagraphs

    Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. Cinemagraphs, which are usually published in an animated GIF format, can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video. They are commonly produced by taking a series of photographs or a video recording, and, using image editing software, compositing the photographs or the video frames into a seamless loop of sequential frames, often using the animated GIF file format in such a manner that motion in...

I see Morrissey has made a return to near the top and...
  10. California Dreaming

    I miss the ocean. While I do love the mountains and rocks surrounding me, I am sadly landlocked here in Sedona. I've toyed with the idea of moving back to Florida—I have family there. And the Tampa Bay area has a wonderful boating community. Unless the ocean returns to the desert basin, I'm out of luck, as far as boating goes here. What about California? It has it all. I use to live in San Francisco and loved it there. But honestly, I prefer the warmer climate down south. I've gotten...
