seven veils.

  • For some reason (endorphins + nostalgia, most likely) it always makes my day to see good videos at the gym. This morning I got to do the most challenging part of my upper body routine to the super-extra-extended promo for "Why Can't I Be You?" and it was, for those ten minutes or so, the perfect gym video. There should be a fitness class based on it! Bear-Suit Disco Aerobics on Acid. With Scythrop. 6am in the Group Fitness Studio. This would also prevent me from singing lines like everything you do is simply kissable! in front of 'roid ragers.


  • Speaking of nostalgia, today is the anniversary of the day S____ & I met. On Laurel Street in Richmond, outside a bar. After a GWAR show. Allll class, baby.


  • It's clear that I've been doing too much EAD encoding when I accidentally start a list like this with <list type="simple"> instead of just <ul>.


  • News from space always makes me giddy. I could never be in Congress because I would cut every last cent of welfare to get more pictures of Mars. And this news about Saturn's moon is exciting! I'm just being a dorky boy over here, never mind me.


  • It's finally stopped raining in Wimbledon! There are so many exciting matches happening right now that my little tennis-loving head may explode. But I have work to do! Pity me.


  • I still ♥ Bill Clinton.


  • I'm trying to get S____ to paint an Old Master style picture for me but with one important substitution. (It was a tough choice between who got to do the job – Judith or Salome – but I didn't want to get good ol' Joannes Baptista involved, you know, especially on This His [fantastically pagan] Feast Day.) It will look like this...

Bring me the head of Ralph Nader!


is Artemesia Gentileschi an Old Mistress?

I definitely thought we'd be to the Honeymoon On The Red Planet stage by now. Soon, please?

Yes, there are actually Those Types that will never understand that all the lateral side dumbbell raises in the world will never make them as hot as Simon Gallup is in that video.

Yes, she was pretty amazing. I really know very little about her, just that painting & how it always gets compared to Caravaggio's, plus that she was the first woman in some painters' guild. I really like the Judith painting though. Do you have any other favorites?

If the gym was like that, i could actually be encouraged to go!

Wouldn't it be great! Alas, instead there is a lot of posturing & smelliness from the guys on the free weights floor, and a lot of hyperfocused women who will actually get off their treadmills and turn OFF the music if they don't like it.

I just think about the jelly roll that I know my midsection wants to grow & hope for good moments like today.
