Please Stand By

AnnouncementThis is a public service announcement. As you can see, the visual styling of my blog is a train wreck. I’ve decided to stop paying what I consider extortion1 to WooThemes for the blog theme I’ve been using for years. As a result, with the latest update of WordPress, my blog has crashed and burned visually. I could pay … Continue reading

Farber Art Installation

I went out and shot several photos of the San Fransisco street cars, had them printed as C prints at Dickerman Prints1. They were mounted  (aluminum back with plexiglass front) by General Graphics.

I hate hanging things on the wall. I measure a dozen times and still end up with things not perfectly aligned. Plus, I didn’t want … Continue reading

You Made It An Awesome Open House!

House - SoftOn April 17th, Steve and I had a thrilling afternoon welcoming everyone into our home, people we hadn’t seen in a long time (in some cases for decades), and others we were meeting for the very first time! I have to confess, we were a bit worried that 170 people said they were coming to the Open House. We were … Continue reading

Continuing the Exploration

In my previous post, Exploring the Backside of the Tracks, I talked about my finding a specific photo location near some Atlanta westside railroad tracks. In this post, I want to talk about what’s by those tracks: The Goat Farm Arts Center. What a very cool place to discover!

The area consists of several buildings built back … Continue reading

Atlanta Driving Is Out of Control

Texting and DrivingI’ve mentioned before that when I lived in Atlanta 8 years ago, I drove like the proverbial bat: insanely fast. However, I never tailgated, weaved in and out of traffic, nor did I text or email while driving. I may have squeezed through a light or a few.

Driving in Atlanta today is like driving in a third world country, … Continue reading

Ok, Ok. So I Lied!

PinocchioI admit it. I told a little white lie. I did it innocently enough. I swear.

Back when I set up my Facebook account I diligently filled in all of the information Mark Zuckerberg requested. I figured it would help me reconnect with people from my past (high school, colleges, etc.).

Later I learned how Mr. Zuckerberg was using all … Continue reading

Comcast: HaHaHaHa!! The Laughs on You!!

You assholes are getting what’s coming to you! And you more than deserve it! You and your absurd 300GB bandwidth limit! Your horrific phone system. Your wretched customer abuse masquerading as support. Frankly, I hope Brian L. Roberts, CEO of Comcast, loses his fortunes, that all of his good employees go to work for Google and Verizon, and … Continue reading

Tobacco & Pipe Shop Versus Facebook

Edwards Pipe and TobaccoIt’s a place from a by-gone era: the tobacco and pipe shops. However, they still exist, though many of their suppliers are long since out of business. Today, I went to such a shop. I went to 3 of them actually—well… kinda, sorta, maybe.

My father died over 18 years ago, in large measure as a result of his addiction … Continue reading
