7282 - Time is whooshing past me too quickly.

I have that appointment at 3pm today... I'm a bit apprehensive, but I anticipate positive results. I see one big possible negative hanging overhead, but hopefully that won't cause any issues.

Brother called last night.He's homeless, but asked me where to get a cheap personal DVD player or portable TV. I advised him to save his money, and to save for an apartment or at least to pay his probation officer. He likes to read sometimes, so I also recommended the wonderfully free library nearby. His priorities are really out of control... He'd rather risk going back to jail, but have a portable tv set that requires batteries and safe shelter? His thoughts are some of the most unfocused as I've ever seen... jumps from topic to topic, never sure of what he's even talking about. Thoughts of survival for him.

I'm still amazed that this is all just a bunch of dots. a bunch of pixels on the screen. Heck, the whole world is a bunch of tiny little dots, too, come to think of it. I liked hydrogen atoms better when they has solar-looking nuclei with an orbiting planet electro, rather than the sphere within a sphere look it took on in my later science classes. I like electrons as a little ball, not a cloud.

Not sure why, but I've had a dramatic upswing of site hits. The biggest draw is that torn/mime video, by far. I am very fond of it, too, but Monkey vs Robot is still my favorite.

The Broken Umbrella Archive. He sees Broken Umbrellas, and takes pictures of 'em.

I don't care what anyone says, I like the alternating Orchestra/Disco "wacka-wacka" theme to Space:1999.

Moment of Lyric: (mp3)

But I know
I have MINE and SHE has HERS and HE has HIS
THEY love US and WE love THEM
What's OURS is THEIRS, that's how it is with friends.

300 island resort designed to look like a world map. I love it. Check it out in Dubai... Maybe I could visit my buddies sedef and oneeyed!

Apparently they will be featuring a time machine at this year's air and sea show. Pretty bad typo, and it's propagated on all of the city buses and billboards. It's supposed to be April 30th - May 1st. They got it right on the Website. I wonder how long it'll be before they fix 'em all? This is the first time I've seen the advert pasted on the side of the bus, but it's rather dirty already, so I'll guess it's been on a day or two, maybe a week at the most. I plan on being out of town, or just staying inside most of that weekend. It's a mob scene.


ouch. Poor little barricade got plowed into... I wonder how much damage the car took. I'm not innocent of barricade abuse either, thought I prefer to drown them. (4 paragraphs down)


More Letter-sticker graffiti. BASIX. It looks like the "I" and especially the "X" are from a different set. Pasted to the back of a stop sign near the corner of 17th and Federal.
