merry xmas eve everyone

Been about a week now and my eyes are doing great my vision so far is perfect, Lasik is totally worth it and I highly recommend it to everyone. I'm done wearing my shields at night and glad cause that damn sticky medical tape is gnarly.

F word

Image
I hate all things Microsoft, mainly caused i'm forced to use it at work and I cant afford it at home. So it's refreshing to see web apps via web 2.0 slowly taking over. For instance could you imagine using word and accessing your word documents anywhere in the world where there was internet access? oh and collaborating and sharing them with others? Then you have to try Writely it's pretty awesome.

I got lasik yesterday

Image
Yup so far I'm at 20/15, so freakin awesome. Ok so I've been saving all year using some non taxable money to get the procedure done. Went to see the eye doc who said I was a good candidate for wavefront or intralasik, basically the difference between the two is one uses a blade to cut the flap of the eye back and the other uses a laser to do it. Both use the laser to do the actual correction, essentially the blade can cut a thinner amount back but the laser is virtually failsafe (at least that's how I was sold). I opted for the more expensive procedure which took place in san leandro by dr. turner . He's got a ton of experience and has taught it and was voted best at it by various magazines etc. When it comes down to picking a doc you want someone with lots of experience, not for the actual procedure but rather for the situations when things go wrong. You want someone who's dealt with those sketchy situations and knows how to take the right steps to correct the sit

The De Young

Image
Went to the De Young museum on Sunday morning and it was incredible. The architecture is so impressive it almost overpowers the art within, couple areas not to be missed are the observation tower, the fabric room w/the drawers, and the super secret sculpture garden room. The food is great and wicked expensive, be ready it takes about 3.5 - 4 hrs to get through it all. Go early to miss the crowds oh and you get a discount with your fast pass or student id so go work it.

What I'm listening to

Image
Rogue Wave's second album, Descended Like Vultures, makes the complex indie stylings of their 2004 debut, Out of the Shadow, seem almost pared-down; here they flesh their sound out with full, almost romantic arrangements. Guitars alternately swell to anthemic proportions and recede into quiet strumming while vocals are similarly well-balanced, weaving their way through tracks and slipping into harmonies. The upshot recalls both vintage Beach Boys and, of course, labelmates The Shins, whom Rogue Wave shared billing with on a North American tour last year. The Oakland-based quartet's lovelorn, slightly literary lyrics, coupled with lead singer Zach Rogue's semi-mournful delivery, and their full, lush guitars hint at a California sound established by bands like, stalwarts of the San Diego scene, Pinback and Heavy Vegetable. Pick up Descended Like Vultures from Sub Pop or iTunes.

Didn't see SNL last night?

Well a friend of a friend of ours wrote a halarious Steve Jobs sketch, check out the vid . Of other notes we saw Death Cab for Cutie at the Warfield a few days ago and it was pretty good. Not fantastic but pretty good, the downstairs bartenders were making fun of the band (of course they were all sleeve tatooed so they thought they were cooler than you). Oh and the MobMov thing was awesome, Kudos to Brian and Julie for kicking it out. We sat in the middle of nowhere and no one was there at first. So we waited it out and at the last min. they showed up, it was pretty cool no one shows up early cept the newbies. Brian shoots a projector against some wall and leaves his car running the whole time so the has juice for it, the dvd player, and the fm transmitter. He also busts out a huge box of concessions and sodas for only a buck each. He accepts donations for his time but is in no way pushy about it. I highly recommend it.

A Night with Hank

Image
The other night me and the wife went to The Palace Of Fine Arts to go see a spoken word performance by the legendary Henry Rollins . The talk was amazing he went for almost 3 hours straight, this guy is by far the hardest working man in show business, he's a musician, poet, author, and actor. As most of you know Henry is best known for being one of the singers of the legendary L.A. punk band Black Flag. And he currently sings for a band called The Rollins Band, I'm not the biggest fan of this current band but I appreciate the effort. This guy has been all over the world and has so many fantastic stories about everything from fat car worshipping walmart going middle america to subjecting himself to the horrors of a week long train ride through Siberia Russia. He's also done a ton of work for the USO entertaining our troops in IRAQ even though he is totally Anti Bush. He puts his money where his mouth is and is the true voice of Generation X/Y so go have a listen to some of

beautiful overpopulation

An exhibition of photographs from Michael Wolf's new book, Hong Kong: front door / back door opens today at Colette in Paris and runs through 3 December. Having lived in China for over 10 years, the book is Wolf's third monograph that takes the country as its subject and his images reflect both his intimacy with the city and an objective journalist's eye. The upshot is a collection of photos that are as stunning aesthetically as they are rich in content.

Uber Music

Kim Garrison is playing at the Make Out Room in SF 11/7/05, see you there.

For ur viewing pleasure

I've finally finished commenting all the Vietnam/Cambodia photos , enjoy. Whoops just realized Costco/Snapfish make you register to see them, sorry bout that but there is no way i'm moving that and commenting all those photos elsewhere.

Cambodian Monkey Attack Video

So I've posted a video of a moment when we were in Cambodia and there were monkeys on the side of the road. The locals were feeding them by hand and they were very gentle, but we had a banana and they freak for nanas. Jess was about to feed one that was patiently waiting, then alpha male comes at her blindspot for the steal as you will see in this briefly scary then hilarious video .

rolling out of bed

ok so I woke at 4:30am an improvement on the pain of 2:30am yesterday. i've got alot more to catch up on in terms of the ride home from Sappa and the whole Cambodia section, i know i know. in the meantime a cool link. Time Out magazine and Deaf Dumb & Blind Communications are launching The Other Side today. Unlike other travel guides you've seen before these guides are hosted by native DJs who not only curate a CD with music that gives a vibe of the city, they also serve as the hosts of the DVD, which features video tours of must-see and must-do things that are slightly off the radar. Clever. The first three city guides (The Other Side of New York featuring Fischerspooner, The Other Side of London featuring Damian Lazarus and The Other Side of Paris featuring Black Strobe) drop today. Expect another three cities every six months. Produced by URBANATION which have additional content on their site.

my clock is off

we woke up this morn at 2:30am and could not go back to sleep, so here I am, jess cooked us a fat american breakfast and now she's ironing. When the hell are we going to get back to normal? First day of work should be interesting, looks like i'm gonna be dog piled. Downloaded all our photos and movies, gotta tag them all then i'll post a link soon. I've had a raging headache for 2 days now, nothing that starbucks can't fix, ah my first starbucks in way too long.

lost my notebook

Shizer! I lost my notebook on the plane to Cambodia, so bummed as I'm going to have to remember all the little things by memory. I left off in Sapa, I'll continue soon but fyi we are now in Cambodia. Let me start off by saying Ankor, Cambodia is the best kept secret of Asia, it blows the doors off of Vietnam, the people are amazingly warm and beyond freaking cool. The Sofitel here in Ankor is so sick and luxurious you have to see it to believe it. I've got to run to bed but in a nutshell, 2 street lights in town, ox walking next to streets, monkeys nearby walking around, the temples are so tomb raider surreal, monks walking around, every one smiling and bowing....zzzzz

clean dirty clean

We have to leave the comforts of our beloved Sofitel Metropole hotel in Hanoi for the hellish Vietnam train system to Sapa. Our conierge tells Emily someone will meet us on our train with her return ticket, of course that never happens, fortunately she will be reimbursed by the Sofitel when she gets back. We get to the train station in Hanoi and there is a flurry of activity, we are the dear in the headlight suckers and as soon as they take our tickets some crackhead looking kid takes Emily's giant rolling duffle bag and leads us to our train which is hidden behind another train. Rolling our luggage over the tracks and keeping up with Opiumboy is a challenge. He leads us into our jail cell sized cabin and demands 50kDong, I look at Emily and she thinks that is absurd. I offer him 20k he refuses and demands 50k, I cave and offer 30, again he refuses. Emily tells me to drop the money on the bunk and ignore him, he picks up the money and slams it on the bunk and demands 50k. Emily t

Bed bugs bite

We just arrived in the mountain top town of Sappa, by far my favorite place in Vietnam. Fewer people, fewer street hustlers (but not by much), and less traffic. Our last night in Hanoi we went to see a water puppet show that was the highlight of the stay. We then took a cyclo around the old quarter which is essentially the tightest streets packed with people and ministores, very blade runner. I finally figured out if a woman is riding a nice Vespa she is a prostitute as quality of scooters reflect status and wealth. The humid heat in Hanoi was beyond explanation, essentially you walk out the hotel door and your sweating instantly. I'm useless in the day and at night it's not cool but rather warm and sticky. The cities of Vietnam are like trying to function in a greenhouse full of smog. We eat dinner at a place called the City View Cafe overlooking a mini lake that people walk around. After we jump into a cab to pick up some outfits that were custom made for Jess and Em. Turns

Hanoi Rocks

Yesterday we went to a market in Saigon, the market was essentially an open warehouse filled with a packed maze of various products, clothing, and food. It feels like having a pillow pressed on your face while someone points a blowdryer at you. The vendors tap your arm and ask you what you want, it's a bit aggressive by our standards but no harm or offense is intended or taken. You walk down endless isles, if you can call them that, that have enough room for one person to walk down and they are crowded with people, you are constantly walking sideways as you try to avoid stepping on the vendors that are crouched down eating pho. We get overheated and claustrophobia in a short amount of time and need to get out to the street where the cyclo drivers barrage us with offers for rides. Everyone is trying to make a buck, and the Vietnamese people are tenacious to make a sale they keep coming at you even if you say no, the trick is to ignore or say no about 5 times. There is no peace in Sa

Last day in Saigon

Yesterday we did a tour of the Me Kong Delta it was a sobering change to the half day Saigon tour we did yesterday which was essentially a military history tour that left you pretty shaken (I would avoid the war atrocities part its way too graphic). Me Kong was beautiful, tranquil, and relaxing. We took a car there and you can see how development is in it's infant stage here but about to explode. The roads are beginging to improve and luxury apartment buildings skeletons are popping up yet right next to that there are shacks where people live and work out of what looks to be a garage type box in sweltering heat. On the side of the road I saw a 50 something woman with 3 cages stacked, the bottom with full of live rats, the middle had live pigeons, and the top cage was full of live snakes. We finally get to the delta where we are met by street vendors running at our car to sell us traditional hats and photos of the delta in broken English, we buy 2 hats at a buck each. Our guide wa

Safe in Saigon

So the wife and myself arrived here in Saigon today via Tapai China. I feel like i've been at some all night rave and its the next evening and i cant figure out if i should sleep or drink more coffee. I'm still in work mode and i'm worrying how my loose ends are getting tied at present. Anyhow its humid and crowded here, kinda like a dirty new york in shorts. The first thing you notice is the insane amount of scooters, they move like a living organism. Crossing the street here is playing the lotto with your life each time. So much for the relaxing vacation so far, but it's really exciting. There does seem to be quite a bit of pollution and things are just kinda dirty in some places but it seems with the new influx of money (via tourism etc..) things are definately on the up and up. I'm seeing neon billboards everywhere and small businesses are thriving, very exciting from an economical perspective. Gonna do some touring tomorrow as tonight was a stroll around the

TWIT Live at the SF Apple Store

Just got back from TWIT 's first attempt at a live podcast, it was held at the SF Apple store and it kinda sucked for most of the live audience. The content might be cool, but we could not hear shit or see shit. Some genius (no pun intended) sat them at ground level, and did not project them. Considering it was standing room only this was pretty lame, hopefully the next effort will be better.

Sign this to stop the A-holes, Dogs Rule

As you may already know from the news media, the Center for Biologic Diversity, with Brent Plater as their chief spokesperson, has filed a petition with the National Park Service requesting action within 60 days to ban off-leash recreation in all the GGNRA. The legitimacy of off-leash recreation in the GGNRA as described in the 1979 Pet Policy was affirmed by Magistrate La Porte last fall, and re-affirmed by Judge Alsup more recently when the GGNRA lost their appeal. Despite the government attorney's denying that an "emergency" existed at the time of the appeal, those organizations who signed on to an amicus brief authored by Brent Plater of the Center for Biologic Diversity, have signed a petition again authored by Brent Plater of the CBD. You have an opportunity to let the various officials of the National Park Service know how outraged you are with this petition, and the obvious intent of these groups to torpedo the upcoming Negotiated Rulemaking.

Just got back from Kings Of Leon

first night in San Francisco's Fillmore. Missed the opening band but caught the never ending Jesus Mary Chain rip off band called The Secret Machines . As my buddy Frank said, "That was the longest hour of my life". It was all freaking light show, if this band had no light show it would have sucked even worse. They seemed like they may be good cd music, but definately not a live band. Ok so getting to Kings of Leon, they put a solid performance in with all the usual stuff plus a new song. They gave their obligatory, "You guys make last nights place look like d-bags" blah blah blah. I got a great Fillmore poster too, oh forgot to mention the stumbling drunk irish guy behind me who yelled/spat the whole time like he was the singer for Celtic Frost or something.

This is the projector the micronauts used, I must have one. This tiny projector from Mitsubishi is the first of many to use a small DLP chipset to make a tiny, easily-pocketable projector (it’s a nascent trend this year). Two things make the ‘Pocket LED DLP’ possible, and one of them is the new superbright LED backlight that makes this unit not only more power efficient, but let susceptible to the bangs of transport.
