May, 2009:

Nice to be a place people WANT to visit

My friend Meg was in town as a chaperone for teenagers on a trip.

She got some time away on Thur and we ate a little dinner (and my leftovers leaked a little all over stuff)

Then we went to the Tonga Room.

It is a neat place, but the service was horrible (messed up a Jameson neat twice).

Luckily the company made up for the service.

Bayto Breakers 2009: walking zombies.

I went to my first Bay to Breakers yesterday and it was super fun!

Here are some photos of me and my friends Sara and Travis as zombies.

‘Everything That Happens Will Happen Today’: I almost forgot about this album

Just bought the 2008 collaboration album from Brian Eno and David Byrne “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today.”.

I got the vinyl/MP3 package and I’m digging the digi-ness while waiting for my 180gram vinyl.

There is a really cool deluxe package, but it is $70 (but damn cool).

Now I need to find someone(s) to go to the Show at the Greek Theatre (U.C. Berkeley)

You can stream the album here

My cheap Vizio 22″ 1080p HDTV/monitor is a liar!

I bought this thing at Costco and it was pretty cheap.

It is freaks out when I plug devices into my PC.

And now it puts a message on the screen saying the VGA signal isn’t sending a signal.

It shows this message over top of the signal from the VGA input.

I found it mildly amusing.
