A Lecture at Reed College


The guy just sort of read the paper that he had written. I drifted off a little.

Graffiti Removal






It's been done many times before, but I needed an easy project. I'm busy.

A Good Find


I took a chance on one of the unlabeled CD-Rs in the darkroom. I labeled it.

A rushed night, bad pictures


Those Darlins (with Lin playing drums) came through town tonight. They let me in to watch their sound check, but I only had a half-hour to hang out.

Some girl on the street took this picture of Lin and me.

Then I had to rush over to Mississippi Pizza and play my own show. It was fun, but I wish it hadn't fallen on the same night my friends were in town.

Watchmen


#1 reason why I didn't like it: The graphic novel does not include any sound effects (biff, pow, zap) or thought bubbles as part of its effort to portray a more realistic world than normal comic books. Within the first minute, however, the movie breaks out the standard comic book movie Matrix-style slow-motion, thus completely negating the central idea that these are real people in a real world. While the graphic novel redefined what a comic book could do, the movie just follows the rules of comic book movies.
Also, regarding the above mentioned "schlong" - In the graphic novel, Dr. Manhattan's nudity is symbolic of his distancing himself from humanity. He is not shown completely nude until after we see him leave Earth. Zack Snyder, however, is swinging it around from the Doctor's first scene. Visionary director? Please. This guy does not get it. Warner Brothers should have called me.

I liked the changed ending and the amount of gore, but those didn't save it from being an utter disappointment. Also I wish I had seen it with a crowd of comic book nerds instead of a mainstream audience looking for an action movie (which it was marketed as, which also makes me angry).

San Francisco Birthday Wandering


Every building here is really cute.

So hippie it hurts.

Amoeba music.

Any city with a tower you can see from all over town is ok with me.
