A Comment on the Weather

I got a Christmas card from the nice folks at the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – the Climate Witness division. You may recall the article I wrote for them concerning the pitiful state of Lake Lanier (speaking of which, the scientific review of my story is now available).…Continue Reading

Twitter Updates for 2008-09-02

@MEaves I didn’t see you in the DragonCon parade! What happened to you guys? Balthazar *loved* it anyway. # @mdotadotx Got busted today by the wife for wearing linen after Labor Day. Maybe my wool fedora will make up for it. # Powered by Twitter Tools.

DragonCon 2007

It occurred to me half-way through this week that I hadn’t really said anything about DragonCon on my blog. Well, it’s that time again! The wife, and our surrogate siblings have been extremely busy – staying up into the wee-hours – to get things ready for the event. Whether it…Continue Reading

6 Days ’till Dragon*Con 2006

It’s getting down to the wire and it looks like we just scored a room at the Marriott Marquis for Dragon*Con weekend, thanks to Mike Eaves. He’s one of the other drummers on the Silk Roads track and in the Dragon*Con drumming circle. I’m sure I’ve mentioned the apparent misalignment…Continue Reading

Blue Nails

I was supposed to have gone to the gay pride parade in Atlanta to shoot a video for one of the food vendors. A friend asked me to come make a commercial for him while he was there, though we never got our plan straightened out in time. I has…Continue Reading
