Googlism

:: Tags:

Enjelani pointed me to Googlism.com, where you can find out what Google has to say about you. My Results are below. Light gray results are results that either don’t apply to me, or whose content source I don’t know of. :) (read more »)

Bowling, etc.

:: Tags:

I have to refrain from using last names in this entry to avoid having google associate these perfectly respectable musicians with the photos presented here. Paul said to me: “Can you imagine THE MET finding [what you have posted about me on the internet]?? (laughter here).” What he’s referring to hasn’t been linked publicly, but some of the other stuff is pretty funny, too :) It was nice to meet Toby. He’s funny.

Oh, to continue a tradition that Dardy started: Bowling scores: 124, 121, 116, 156. I suck, but I’m consistent! :) (read more »)

Tomales Point, Sandra Cisneros, Sophie’s Party

:: Tags:

Full day yesterday! In the morning, Wendy, Lilli and I drove up to Point Reyes to hike the Tomales Point trail (just over 7 miles), which is supposedly the best place in Northern California to see wildlife. We did see a few herds of elk (complete with protective large alpha male), numerous raptors, and half of a dead bunny rabbit. Unfortunately, all of the vegetation was dried and dead, but I imagine that it would have been beautiful in the late Spring. (read more »)

Check out Ozzie! He’s on the front page of the Arts section of the New York Times today. :)

Old Photo

:: Tags:

I sat alone tonight, doing work and watching “Meet the Parents.” I laughed a lot because the movie was so funny, but at the same time, I felt … alone.

I have to force myself to go to bed now. I hope I don’t just lay there awake, like I did last night.

Here’s an old photo I dug up of my sister and me, on her first birthday. :)

DEMA 2002, Vegas

:: Tags:

I’ve put up some photos of DEMA 2002. I was out there with my wetpixel.com “working press” media badge, and met nearly everyone I’ve heard of in the underwater photo and video industry. It was really amazing, and a bit surreal, to be thrown into the mix like that (I had Jim Watt and the Abernethys taking me around, introducing me to everyone).

Wendy, Jeremy, Victor, Vienna

:: Tags:

Here’s an article about Wendy’s exhibit: “A new exhibit featuring large-format color photographs by Wendy Cheng, winner of this year�s Dorothea Lange Fellowship, is on display in Moffitt Undergraduate Library, opposite the elevators at the front entrance level.”

Victor Wishna and Jeremy Desmon were in town for reunion last weekend, and Mandy drove them up here to hang out on Sunday before the Golijov concert at Mem Aud.

Wendy’s friend Jesse wrote this week’s Shouts & Murmurs piece in the New Yorker. It’s entitled, “The Duel.”

Um… yeah. I thought I had more to say when I started this entry. I just got back from seeing Kurt Masur conduct the SF Symphony play Britten’s War Requiem. Great stuff! Lots of tri-tones.

Also, check this guy. He’s amazing (acrobatics and martial arts).

I’m having identity crisis. Where will I be in two years? Who knows. (read more »)

Stanford Reunion

:: Tags:

I’m currently missing my Stanford ’97 five year reunion because I’m on tour. :( At least I get to see some photos from it on Adam’s web site. Maybe some of my long-lost Stanford acquaintances will be roaming around on Sunday. I’ll be there virtually all day (but unable to participate in whatever events are left), because we are perfoming at Mem Aud in the evening.

“LISP would have spoken, but it had caught a glimpse of itself in the pond and fell in when it tried to meet itself coming.” – The Parable of the Languages

I’m a big nerd. Enjelani posted a link to a brilliant work called “The Parable of the Languanges,” which some of you other software nerds out there might enjoy. It’s quite funny. :)

Strange Call

:: Tags:

Very bizarre. Someone random just called me on my cell:

Lee: “Hey, this is Lee.”
Me: “Uh… hey.” (confused)
Lee: “We talked over e-mail?”
Me: “Oh… uh… ok.” (I sound unsure)
Lee: “415-xxx-xxxx? Is this Goldicocks?”
Me: “xxx” (I correct the wrong number)
Lee: “Oh… I’m… sorry.”

Interesting. I wonder what the e-mail was about. :)

Photos from tonight. Eyes still burning. Oh, yes. Some old photos from New York that I found on a small memory card are here, too. (read more »)

Insomnia

:: Tags:

In case you are wondering why I am posting so much stuff late at night, it appears that I am suffering from a bout of insomia. It hasn’t been like this since I was in college. It’s not even good, productive insomnia (the likes of what led to projects like “Beanie Baby Hell“). It’s just slothy, depressive insomnia. Very unfortunate.

Totally unrelated: check out the other Eric’s Oct 14th entry. (I don’t know how to link to specific entries on his page, so you’ll have to go searching for it). It contains a photo: the most beautiful photo I’ve seen in a long time.

Paul Groves’ House

:: Tags:

Being the social butterfly that I am (yeah, right ;), I kept driving north after I left Stanford, and ended up at Paul Groves’ apartment in Sausalito. Geoff, Livia, Laura, and Julie were there, eating and watching some golf movie with Kevin Costner in it. Jay showed up shortly afterwards, after being driven crazy by a cab driver who was mistaken in his claim that was familiar with Sausalito. Good times. :) (read more »)

Sathers, Burrito Real

:: Tags:

Burrito Real: I don’t get to eat there often enough, anymore, now that I’m up here in the city (not that there is any sort of shortage of Mexican food up here, but I have fond memories of that place). Elliot‘s cousin, Chris, is in town with his girlfriend, so we (Mandy, Jamie, Me, and the Sathers: Elliot, Monica, Chris) met up at the Stanford PD loft before heading down to Mountain View.

Wen and Char’s Housewarming

:: Tags:

My eyes burn when I close them, and my bed beckons from above. My sister and her roommate Charlotte had a housewarming party tonight at their place in Oakland. I finally had the fortune of meeting a few of Wendy’s friends, whom I have been hearing about for a long time now. The Berkeley Geography crowd is very interesting; everyone seems to have an unusual story to tell (e.g. being a political prisoner in Central America, or doing glaciology research in Antarctica).

Wendy took a bunch of portraits tonight — her first substantial experience with a digital SLR! I think she likes it. :) Unfortunately, I can’t post any of them without first obtaining her permission. (read more »)

House Concert: Claire and Livia

:: Tags:

Claire Bryant and Livia Sohn performed tonight at my place (Shostakovich Cello Concerto and Wieniawski “Fantaisie Brillante”, on themes from the opera, “Faust,” by Gounod). Claire played with a pianist whose name I can’t spell (Kesuke?), and Livia played with Stephen Prutsman (who was sitting at the piano all the way back, slipping lower and lower in his little folding chair :). I really liked Livia’s waltz in the middle of the Wieniawski. It was very convincing. :)

As usual, it was a great crowd. It’s very rewarding for me to throw these events. People ask questions like, “what happens when you put two fingers down on the same string?” — because they are close enough to see what the musicians are actually doing to produce sound.

Incidentally… if you are lurking out there and are interested in coming to one of these events, get in touch with me and prove that you are not psycho. Obviously, I can’t open my place up to any random person out there, but I’m willing to invite a few people I don’t know to each event. :) In the past, I’ve asked one or two people whose online journals I follow, but no one has yet taken me up on the offer.

Comments?

:: Tags:

I’ve posted almost 100 photos in the last 32 hours or so. :)

I would like to open this entry up to some comments — not necessarily related to anything in this site here. Anything to say out there? I’m just sort of curious who you all are.

This has been dangerous in the past… ;)

100% Musicians (sorta)

:: Tags:

Had fun tonight with Jay (read his stories!), Paul, Geoff, Livia, and Livia’s friends Julie, David, and Bourbon.

Then, I got home. Work sucks. Stressful. (As are some other things). At least I got to go out. Photos –> (read more »)

Random Photos

:: Tags:

Photos from the past few days: San Diego, Andy and Carrie’s cats, Norm and Teri, Balloons, Adam Tow, SLSQ, Livia, Jay.

I hate to write this here, in fear that those people coming to see Bill’s wedding photos will come across it, but I … must. Last night we were out at a bar/restaurant until late in the evening (among us were three Austrian opera singers who were SO RUDE to the staff there. it was quite stereotypical). Anyway, afterwards, we were standing on the corner saying our goodbyes, and a man walked up and asked Paul: “You want a blowjob?” Our reaction: blink blink “uh… no thanks.” The Man: “because… I’ll give you one!”

I’m so glad we were there to witness that. hehehe. (read more »)
