Dust Bunnies on the Cobwebs - Photoblog

 
 
I've been known to respond to open calls only I perceive. One could say that is a bane to end all. Many fellow salonistas make their mark while others leave one. Either way, it's time you're never getting back. Sorry, but I don't make the rules.
 
Please don't… Read full post »

Scout's Rights

scout_badges What are the Boy Scouts of America afraid of?

 

The Boy Scouts have been in the news lately over the issue of gays and lesbians openly participating in Scouting. My encounter with their one-time requirement of membership in an organized religion leads me to believe the worst thing… Read full post »

Take one decrepit blog platform, no please.

Add five years of what we need summon kindness to call je ne sais quoi, because we bloody hell know what the ne sais quoi, and arrive at that place where the bubble-gum is holding once again.

un meneo de mi dedo

New Mexico legislator Cathrynn Brown, R-Carlsbad, introduced a bill with admitted "wording problems" that would make it a crime for rape victims to have an abortion. Something about "tampering with evidence."

NSFW NM



When you dissect the difference between what a third grader ought to know and the performance of your class register's poorest performing sub-group, they nomenclaturize.

How about an "achievement gap?" Sure. Why not?

Hooray! Somebody's ass just got covered.

You poor… Read full post »

If you want to watch the coolest videos, don't go to Gawker and say "show me what you got."

'Cause what they got is your number. (Okay, hard-of-hearing Darth Vader was smirkworthy, but not for the duration.)

What?

 

No, follow the "channel" of somebody cool. To… Read full post »

Visiting with Ghosts (A Photo-Blog)

 
I went for a little drive (okay, a water run) last Thursday and passed through our old stomping ground of Paxton Springs. We lived in its last habitable structure for six years, from 1976 to 1982. You can tell many people called this place home back when the lumber railroad… Read full post »

regaining imperceptibility


my schoolboy knowledge serves me well
wondering where the yellow went
finding cancer in the sky
the tedium we'll circumvent

but surely you will know the deal
shorter, shorter, then it's long
the solstice marks familiar days
but sunrise says there's something wrong

Not to Hit "Send" - a Lost Art

 

Hey there. A(n) x-mas greeting from the high desert. I hit delete on that Texas crap, so your original warm and fuzzies never fully made it. Sorry. Can one rent a clue?

The Resistance of Memory

From what I've made of what I've read, though that makes me an expert in all of nothing, all across the country, something about this latest (and would we could say "last") mass killing resonates in every state. The red state mindset, the blue state mindset, and the white of innocents… Read full post »

It is so petty, whether one is done here, protesting for a while, or too lazy to give lorianne her props and rejoin one's friends elsewhere (where there's air I'm told) and piss you off this time baby. (Mea maxima culpa.)

Art is the Burnisher (of Your Best Work)

 

I've "accused" some of you savvy readers of being artistic, which I've recently been made aware gives you the creeps.

 

Sorry.

 

I don't know how else we'd interact, but I'm willing to give this "new order" a try.
