  • Wil is working tonight. I’m being a total lamer not going to MNBF xtina’s New Years party. But it’s too cozy in here, I gotta play computer! #
  • This GT-R1 is sooo much easier to mess around with than the frickin’ Micro BR, I wanna cry. Not true multitracking but still… WAY easier. #
  • Got a new toy, a Tascam GT-R1 field recorder / looper / audio scratchpad thingy. Hope it’ll prove more useful than my fiddly little Micro BR #
  • Got paid for a song in a movie – “Mirage” used in GIGANTIC w/ Ed Asner, Jane Alexander, John Goodman & Zooey Deschanel. Not in theaters yet. #
  • My dad’s RV is bigger than your dad’s RV… #
  • Merry Christmas everybody! For Albanyites & El Cerritles, the Pic-n-Pac on San Pablo & Fairmount has tons of eggnog left, if you need some. #
  • I love my local dive bar!! not gonna tell you the name lest you come ruin it. Customer Appreciation Night – me & wil & xtina all got prizes! #
  • (I didn’t mean YOU-you btw. sorry if it sounded like that.) #

Friendship bracelets

So… I used to make these in the 80s. Yeah. I also had blue hair and worked at a head shop. Anyway these are just a few of the rejects, ‘cuz I gave away (or threw away) most of the good ones.

I think the bracelet on the far right is the point where I decided “enough is enough!” and abandoned the whole craft. I think I was trying to use 24 strings or something insane like that, using super skinny floss. Not only does it induce seizures, it also doesn’t work very well — it gets all distorted and icky if you try to move the design too close to the edge. Blecch.

  • Got all choked up about the All My Children tribute to Myrtle Fargate. Haven’t even seen the show in a few years – where were Palmer & Adam? #

A new hat! Using a pattern by Elizabeth Zimmermann (for the third time). This one’s for myself, I think. And I’m not going to felt it this time. :-)
