Human ingenuity is cool

Posted by: Dave In: DIY|Science|Technology

[youtube]lRRDzFROMx0[/youtube] Wally Wallington, of Flint Michigan, is a pretty clever man.  Using mere levers and counter-weights he has moved some staggering weights (including moving an entire pole-barn about 300 feet). My favorite quote from Wally “Gravity is my favorite tool.” I love seeing examples of people who have accomplished amazing things in such a simple, […]

Swedish Hell

Posted by: Dave In: Books|DIY|Misc|Music

I just finished putting together a massive wall of book shelves and CD racks from Swedish Hell. It took me the better part of 5 hours to complete the whole thing. We are attempting to clean up our apartment and needed some major storage to do so. We were a few weeks away from looking […]

Back in H-Town

Posted by: Dave In: Travel|Vacation

Well folks, we’re back in Houston. The flight was fairly smooth and shortly after we landed we found our way to our favorite asian restaurant in Houston. One good meal (and several glasses of wine later) we are home safe and sound. We will be picking up Queenie tomorrow; so the Above the Aether grotto […]

Goodbye Hollywood Theater

Posted by: davidherrold In: HPL|Mobile

It’s been a great trip to Portland this year. I’m even a bit sad it’s over. The movies were interesting. The people were wonderfully weird. The company was delightful. The festival was even more fun this year because we were experiencing it with friends. Hmmm…I wonder what movies will be playing next year? – Dave

HP Lovecraft Film Festival 2006 – Day one

Posted by: Dave In: Film|HPL|Oregon

After the introduction to the festival from founder, Andrew Migliore and a brief chat with author, Ramsey Campbell, Robert Price gave the Lovecraftian blessing while wearing a yellow mitre adorned with strange symbols while he sported an ear-to-ear, fully-bearded grin. We all opted to catch both block one and block two of the short films.  […]

John and Robbin in Portland

Posted by: davidherrold In: Mobile

Went out to dinner at Greek Cusina and plan on hitting Powell’s bookstore when we’re done.


  • 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.
