I think all of you know this already but I'm moving back to Seattle.  I should be arriving on August 11.  (And starting my new job on the 20th.)

That is all. Carry on.

 It's been a couple of months since my last diaries here and some people were concerned about me so I should just let everyone know I'm okay.

This weekend marks the end of Daylight Saving Time, so remember to set your clocks forward an hour at 2:00 PM on Sunday.  It's very important that we all do this at the same time, or else the system falls apart.

From a comment on MetaFilter that was linked to from a weblog I read:
Yeah, "Third World" is the wrong metaphor. It's a dying empire, which will, internally, look like the third world in some parts. 

Basically the US, as a country, is like a rich person that spent an amazing shit ton of money on the best imaginable security for his house, ringing it with multiple moats, missile launchers, thousands of full-time heavily armed guards with the best possible weaponry and equipment, and on and on and on. In fact, this person went so overboard that he borrowed from anyone who would lend to him for all this crazy security. And while the multi-decade project of building this security apparatus was going on, he neglected to pay any attention to the source of his wealth. One by one, the companies he held stock in dissolved, the buildings he owned fell empty because of neglect, the partnerships and social contacts that ensured he stayed on top of the game fell away. His industries were eclipsed by newer, nimbler players. And by the time his security was perfect, he knew nothing but fear and hadn't yet realized that he no longer had anything worth protecting. 

We're currently at the point where the creditors can still be kept from collecting by the massive military machine we've built, but eventually we'll run out of money to pay them, too. And then the whole house of cards comes down.
I just found it a bit ironic, considering who wrote it.

Show starts at 6:00 PM PDT, my set starts at 9:30 (I'm the headliner!) but I'll also be playing in other peoples' sets so you should watch the whole thing.

Saturday is my birthday and I have no plans. Should I plan on making plans or will I just have to experience Carousel alone?

Print Story Twitch
By fluffy (Fri Apr 25, 2008 at 02:00:30 PM EST) (all tags)
One of my coworkers gets this little tiny twitch right by his mouth when he's getting frustrated.  I seem to be pretty good at making him twitch, usually by not understanding something dumb and trivial (like how certain open source applications are so self-important that they have Linux kernel-like version numbering schemes which have no bearing on actual reality, e.g. version 2.4.1 isn't actually that much newer than version 2.2.3).

Now if I can get his whole face to twitch, that'd be something.

Octothorpe - Zombie Son (live in Moscow, ID)

At that point the lead vocalist's voice was basically gone.  But that's me on the drums.  Also there will be audio from the Spokane show shortly in this thread (my solo stuff being Sockpuppet).  Also I have a more detailed writeup over hither.

Portland, Seattle, Spokane, and Moscow shows this weekend.  The San Francisco gig went great and I think I'm onto something with this loop pedal performance thing.
