Word of the day

crepuscular \krih-PUS-kyuh-luhr\, adjective: 1. Of, pertaining to, or resembling twilight; dim. 2. (Zoology) Appearing or active at twilight. Crepuscular comes from Latin crepusculum, “twilight,” from creper, “dark, obscure.” First person to use “crepuscular” in conversation today wins. -Dave

Memories of the Mountain State

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

I was looking through some old photos of Colorado and found this one I took of some old stone ruins. This is just outside of Nederland, Colorado (a short drive west of Boulder). This was near a fantastic 4×4 trail that nearly made me wet my pants.

Da Bears…

A glimpse of Soldier Field in Chicago. I wish I had another week to explore the city. I also saw the Chicago Tribune, which is a very impressive old building downtown. More photos to come. -Dave

Sign in Portland

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

This is a funny picture I took with my phone in Portland. I think this sign is saying “Bicycles, beware of giant Lincoln Logs!”. (Yes, it’s odd to say “picture I took with my phone”…as if it’s always been a normal thing for a phone to do.) -Dave

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

We are mere moments away from the greatest magic trick of all time…making a turkey disappear. Justine and I went for a pre-Thanksgiving walk this afternoon, knowing full well that our efforts would only discount a single spoonful of her mom’s bread stuffing. Nevertheless, we endured the nose-dripping 19F Chicago cold and walked for 30 […]

Gosh, I don’t miss work at all. I have 3 books with me and a smooth bottle of Maker’s Mark. This is already a wonderful trip. – Dave

We’re heeeere…

We just arrived at the mighty O’hare airport in Chicago. Up to this point, my only memory of Chicago is the neon-lit walkway in the airport. I’m looking forward to a relaxing Thanksgiving. – Dave

Goin’ to Hell in Gasoline Underwear

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

I love the website this comes from. You must check out the spoofed covers of romance novels. I think my second favorite is entitled “For the Love of Scottie Mullet” followed by “Chili Supper for Satan.” — H.R.H. Justine

So, my new favorite (little-known) airline search engine is called Kayak. It uses these cool little sliders you can adjust on-the-fly to refine your search. You move the “price” slider and your search results change before your eyes. Same goes for departure and arrival times. We have partnered with them here at the Houston Chronicle […]

Worst album covers ever…

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

I read PitchforkMedia.com every now and then for my indie music fix and this week features a collection of the worst album covers of all time. Here are a few for your viewing pleasure. 1. Ken: by request only. Whatever Ken’s singing, I don’t think I’m man enough to listen. 2. Ted Nugent: Scream Dream. […]

  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?
  • Kevin David Anderson: check out our other wreaths at: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150452725264516.391111.360128594515&type=3
  • 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.
