my Smashing Darling

Leeann's jewelry Just got featured in Smashing Darling's email! She's #12 in their list - see here.


everytime i think about the iPhone, I get antsy and want one. What a devilish device - makes me want to find a better paying, more miserable boring job just so that i could afford one.

now accepting donations.

currently listening

John in the Morning!
Best Show Ever.

Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
The best book I've ever not enjoyed reading.
Highly recommended must read.

Democrats debate

I missed the debates last night. When I got home from Magic Babies practice, Leeann told me a little about it. I was, of course, a little too eager to judge - i.e. Edwards is smarmy, Clinton (the news will only call her by her first name - it's irritating) is a closet warmonger, and Obama is too religious. I realized, while listening to leeann talk about how well the debates went (i'll be trying to catch the webcast during off-time at work), that she is remarkably more tolerant than i could ever hope to be. She was excited that everybody (some more than others) had great things to say.
I forgot that these are all democrats and I will vote for any of them. There can be no place for my rush to judgment. I'll ease into it!


new name for blog

dot yup.

long time gone

so - no post since February, eh? nice.

I've redesigned my former freelance site's home page (now a online ftp hole for project passing) to be a little less ugly and experimental. I was tired of it being up there - especially so close to my HS reunions where people will undoubtedly be looking for me.

I think i'm going to de-specialize this blog and use it for all purpose. I really pigeon-holed myself when i said "music projects." I got into a habit of not posting when and what I wanted. I'm feeling the urgest of urges to be webby again.

I've got to figure out some things like flash music players so that i can keep a playlist on the side of my projects - for easy access. then i can clutter up the blaaaahg with posts like these.

For reasons in addition to their genius, Kieron Gillen and Warren Ellis are setting a good example of how to maintain (for a few years running!) a consistent web presence. .. as if Blogger could be a host to that.

Content first. Format second.

Welcome back to me.
