Facebook vs. My own blog

Lately, anything I have found interesting I've posted on Facebook. I do this because more people will see it on FB as opposed to people having to come to blog site. Sorry if this hasn't been active, though I doubt you're that disappointed ;).

Maybe I should post some more techy stuff here? Right now I'm just posting Political Propoganda on FB. Have to combat the GOP...

Wicked

Saturday night, we saw Wicked at the Phantages theater. I'm not all that into musicals, but the story was pretty good. Unfortunately, the music wasn't very remarkable. All the songs had that standard "musical" vibe which I hate. If Hedwig and the Angry Inch every played, I'd go see that in a minute though.

Diana Ross

Last month, Kelly and I went to see Diana Ross at the Gibson Amphitheater (at Universal Studios). In case you didn't know, Kelly is a huge Diana Ross fan. I don't know much about her, but she was pretty good that night. She sang several of the motown hits, and also did some covers. Gordy Berry, Jr. was in the crowd and she dedicated a song to him. I didn't know this, but she has a huge gay following. Sadly, earlier that day her father passed away, so she had to leave right after the show, but despite all this, put on a good show.

The Kite Runner

Last night I went with Tina, Eva, Creighton and Tina (Creighton's wife) to a premiere viewing of The Kite Runner for a charity, The Afghanistan World Foundation. Overall, the film was pretty good. I actually bough the book on Audible a few months ago, but have not listened to it yet, so the plot of the movie was new to me. Some elements seemed far fetched, but it is a work of fiction.

There is a part of the film where the main character sneaks back into Afghanistan during the Taliban rule, and he has to wear a fake beard. Unfortunately, it looks all of the other actors portraying the men of Afghanistan are also wearing fake bears. All I could keep thinking of was Team America.

Slow comments on Movable Type?

Thanks to a quick search on google, I found this page which explains that a spam lookup service shutdown their server, which caused the comment process to slow down because it was waiting for a timeout...

Hopefully Six Apart tells people.

Actually, they did yesterday here

Battlestar Galatica is on!!!

I mean ON!!!!! I forgot it was starting up again and it popped up on our Tivo. We had to watch, and it didn't let us down. For a season premiere it was a nailbiter. I thought they were suppose to resolve the season cliffhangers in the premiere and then set you up for another story arc. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned.

As an aside, I keep watching shows that for look to me like they are all commenting on the state of our nation, a la King George. A lot of the "Do what's good for the people even if it means breaking laws" kind of plots. Maybe I'm just reading into things here....

Drunk Leina Claus

Maybe Leina had a little bit too much eggnog to drink... Posted by Picasa

Leina Claus

Kelly got Leina this really cute santa outfit. She took a whole bunch of pics with her in it and chose one to use as our christmas card. Unfortunately Snapfish sent our cards and they got lost in the mail. No cards for anybody....Maybe they'll show up next month and people will get belated x-mas cards.... Posted by Picasa

Christmas in NYC

We went to NYC a few weeks ago. My birthday gift from Eva was tickets to see Avenue C, which I've been trying to see for the last year. Everytime we'd go to NYC, I'd try to buy last minute tickets for it, but they were always sold out. Eva came to Boston and took care of Leina while Kelly and I went to NYC for the weekend. Thank you Eva for being so thoughtful. We did miss Leina though...;(

Avenue C was pretty funny. Nothing like seeing puppets singing and having puppet sex on Broadway.

Creighton and Tina happened to be in the city that weekend as well so we all hung out. We went to Koi for dinner and it was a sight. A lot of really cheezy people there. Though I did see this guy with a very sweet velvet suit on. Posted by Picasa

CODEX SERAPHINIANUS


I must get this book. It was created by an Italian architect in the 1980's. It's basically an encylopedia to an imaginary world, with an invented scripts and numbering system. It's pricey though, but it appeals to my sensibilities. Check out the images.

The Codex info.

Here's a guy's story on how he found a copy in Rome.

I never knew this flea market existed. I think I'm going to check it out next month. I probably won't buy anything, but I like looking at this kind of stuff. It's every third Sunday from April through October.

Since she's half Taiwanese, Leina got her first Chinese dress. Since

she has about a half inch of neck, it wouldn't button up to give it that

nice authentic look, but she looks cute none the less.
