…If I could turn back time. Welcome back good old Standard Time. This was the weekend we all “fell back” and I must say, I could use the extra hour of sleep. Standard weekend fare. Saturday: Got a haircut Saturday morning. Went to Half-Price Books (one of the good things in Texas) and picked up […]

Me fail English?! That’s unpossible!

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

I LOVE The Simpsons. I think it would be fair to say that I would not want to live in a world where there are no twice-daily Simpsons reruns. My dear friend Brenn sent me this hep link to a complete list of simpsonian neologisms. Ever wonder what “assal horiztontology” meant? How about the origins […]

Fall in Houston

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

It’s finally chilly here in the mornings. No, really, I actually saw my breath while walking to my truck this morning. This weather will only last a couple months before it’s back to hot and sweaty spring again, but I am going to enjoy it while I can. -Dave

Feisty Monkey!

Justine here. Nate sent me a very cool website. It’s all about the Chimp Head for Nate. Apparently this is what he wants for Christmas. I have advised him that certainly Dave and I will take this into consideration but only under the following rather stringent conditions: 1. Nate is under no circumstances to use […]

The Houston Astros are in the World Series

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

I attended the Queens of the Stone Age & Nine Inch Nails concert last night. It was pretty good. Not spectacular, but not bad either. The interesting part of the evening happened when I left the concert venue. I was surrounded by crowds of yee-hawing Texans, screaming about the Astros winning the play-offs. Pick-up trucks […]

Sticking it to the HOAs

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

I though this was funny and interesting… From the New York Times: IT began with a one-liner, a throwaway, a joke: how would you get Stonehenge past a zoning board? Jonathan Rothberg, a scientist who has developed, among other things, an efficient way to sequence the human genome using fireflies and a microchip, posed that […]

Mt Hood

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

Some beautiful pics of Mt Hood in Oregon. We went there on Monday and had a fantastic time. We ate brie, fruit and crackers at the Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood. The lodge is located at 6,000ft (which happens to be timberline in Oregon…hence the name). They also happen to have delicious hand-crafted beer there […]

HPL Filmfest: Day 3

Posted by: Dave In: Film|HPL

No. We have not had our share of horror movies yet. Sunday afternoon found us in the Hollywood Theater in Portland again. The theater is a 2-story building with two smaller theaters upstairs and one main theater downstairs. It is in a very cool part of town called the Hollywood district, filled with pubs, bookstores, […]

HPL Filmfest: Day 2

Posted by: Dave In: Film|HPL

We decided to catch “HP Lovecraft: The Terror Within” at the 1:30pm timeslot on Saturday. The theater had 3 separate screens going the whole time, and this one happened to be in the smaller theater upstairs. The movie was a cross between MTV Road Rules and A Shadow Over Innsmouth. The concept of the movie […]

Oregon coast

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

Last friday Justine and I went to the Oregon Coast…Cannon Beach, to be specific. It was beautiful. The picture above is of “Haystack Rock” a famous rock formation on Cannon Beach. We had lunch at the Morris Fireside Restaurant. Justine had a shrimp salad and I had fish and chips. It was a nice place. […]

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
