Hanging out in Taos, NM

Posted by: Dave In: New Mexico|Travel|Vacation

We’ve headed south for the weekend to Taos, NM.  Having fun walking around the old pueblo.  Google maps said it would take us 5 and a half hours to get here. I did it in 4. – Dave

HP Lovecraft Film Festival 2009

Posted by: Dave In: Film|HPL|Oregon|Weird

Having a great time at the HP Lovecraft Film Festival here in cloudy Portland, OR. This year’s short films were pretty good overall. Some stand out films this year were “Noirville”, “Tinglewood”, “Seance” and “Dirt Dauber.” I’m looking forward to a showing of “The Mist” later tonight, which is a faithful adaptation of Stephen King’s […]

A new two-wheeler

Posted by: Dave In: Colorado|Misc|Travel

I’ve always wanted a motorcycle. So, about two weeks after my knee surgery I visited the Harley Davidson dealership and picked out a red 2010 Road King.  I’ve been riding it for the past 3 weeks and love it. It’s pretty heavy (nearly 800lbs with a full tank of gas) but it handles extremely well […]

The monkeys have moved

Posted by: Dave In: Colorado

That’s right, we’ve officially moved to Denver, Colorado – the land of microbrews and mountains.  Against all advice to “hunker down and stay put in this economy” we thought following our bliss couldn’t possibly be a bad thing. So stay tuned for a couple additional posts on outdoorsy stuff mixed in with all the monkeys […]

Hurricane Ike

Posted by: Dave In: Texas|Weather

UPDATE – Saturday, Sept 12th – We’re all fine here, just without power and water.  It’s like camping, except not nearly as much fun. We are staying in Houston to ride out Hurricane Ike.  We have plenty of food, water, batteries, etc to keep us going.  I’ll try to take some photos or video of […]

Tropical storm Edouard is supposed to hit us in Houston tonight around midnight. Our storm supplies consist of olives, vermouth and vodka.  It worked for Rita, why not Edouard? I’ll try to post some photos or video of the tropical storm experience here later tonight. – Dave UPDATE: Monday, July 04 – 7:55PM (CST) – […]

Gas Buddy

Posted by: Dave In: Business|Places|Travel|Web

No, this is not a pill or a new type of underwear, it is a website that tracks the price of gas by county across the United States.  Green is good.  Red is bad. Check out Gas Buddy here. – Dave

Cactus Music is back!

Posted by: Dave In: Business|Music|Texas

I got a great piece of news today via the magical interwebs. Cactus Music is back in business and will be celebrating their grand re-opening tonight with some live music. I wrote about Cactus Music closing their doors over 2 years ago and was a little disappointed by the announcement. Houston Calling, a great local […]

Election Day November 2007

Posted by: Dave In: Current Affairs|Political|Texas

It’s funny.  I just heard a local news organization say something to the effect of “we’re bringing to bear the most comprehensive election coverage ever in Houston.”  Blah blah, internet…blah blah…podcast…blah blah live blogging…etc, etc, etc. The punchline is – the projected turn-out at the polls is around 10%. I’d say the news organizations can […]

Flying pigs announce: Hell freezes over

Posted by: Dave In: Colorado|Sports

HOLY SHIT THE COLORADO ROCKIES ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES! I am shocked and don’t have much to say other than I REALLY hope they win the series.  I’m not a huge sports fan (I had to add “sports” as a tag just for this post), but I consider them my hometown team and […]

  • 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.
