For the Family

So my great aunt died, the one I only remember meeting a thousand years ago at family events. My mother is still in Indiana, my oldest sister in Seattle, and my middle sis and bro-in-law coming back in town tomorrow night. Which leaves me to do to the family stuff, erupting my plans of getting the brakes done. So I get a free brunch tomorrow before the viewing of someone I barely know. here is hoping on a side note my boss will let me go to the bad side of town to fix my metal on metal brakes before driving 500 miles each way.

Or we die on the way. Hope Adrian lives, just filed out the paperwork for him.

Christmas is Coming

Art by Kim Anno. Beautiful pieces of oil on sheet metal. I didn't ever even think such a medium was possible as getting oil to stick to anything is bloody hard to do, let alone something it can slide right off. These are pieces I would gladly hang on my wall.

Things I'd Probably Make If I Had More Free Time

Berlin-based Mashallah Design & Linda Kostowski have created items of clothing by scanning human bodies and using the data to create sewing patterns. The human form is turned into 3D patterns of polygons, which are then turned into 2D files and used to laser cut fabric. The project was on show at Create Berlin during the London Design Festival earlier this month.

Crystal Head Vodka
Thousands of years ago, thirteen crystal heads were scattered across the earth – and they are greater and more powerful than anything we have the ability to manufacture today. Their workmanship is perfect: they contain no tool marks and have been cut against the natural axis of the crystal, defying the laws of physics. Some say they are artifacts from the lost civilization of Atlantis, some say they date back to the Mayans, still others say they were created by a higher intelligence.

Brought together, the Crystal Heads are said to contain vast knowledge and enlightenment capable of unlocking our most enigmatic ancient mysteries. Alone, each is believed to house radiant psychic energy, which has magical powers and healing properties.

Pinata of Ridiculuousness

Palin: 6 times said the McCain/Palin administration are mavericks.
Biden: 8 times said Maverick to state exactly why McCain is not a maverick.

Really, how can someone want to elect a woman who gives a shout out to a 3rd grade class in the middle of the VP debates? This is not an award show, this is not the setting where you act like any common fool. Stop calling Americans 'Joe 6-pack' as if that is not an incredibly derogatory term to anyone who has a brain. Maybe there are those who are happy with a 6-pack and a blow job every other week, but do I want that person in charge of the country?

Also, typically the point of a debate is to actually answer the questions rather than to keep talking about things you have done in Alaska that have no tie to the actual question at hand. Biden used facts and well phrased statements, Palin barely managed to look like the thoughts she spoke were even her own and not just trained into her head in the last 48 hours.

Jeebus the woman scares me. Here's hoping next Tuesday has a better debate.
