I stayed home the other day. It was Good Friday, a good day to stay home. I mostly stayed home because I was recovering from the Seder I went to at Temple Beth Hatfiloh. Such a lovely community Seder, complete with Kosher wine from Israel. And those four glasses of it were only the start... So there I was, home alone, with the neighborhood dogs. And they were barking for hours. I don’t remember hearing dogs around here barking quite so much. I guess I’m not usually home all day when my neighbors are out. But they barked all day Friday.

Hey Olympia. A couple of rad dudes have been working on an animation at the stump house called Moon Diary. Here's the preview trailer.

(album review)

We here at Timefighters are living a lie. We''ve known it all along, however, only an ocean of drink could possess us to admit this in the company of others. We wake up every morning blinded by the futility of our struggle. It''s not the sun blaring through our curtainless windows that blinds us, it is Time. We can fight Time all we want, but Time will always win. No matter what weapons we wield, no matter what inventions we mother. In the same vein as umbrellas fighting rain, or the Golden Gate Bridge fighting California''s sink into the ocean, Time will always win. That is the lesson we can garner from Paleo''s new (and old) album, Pedestrian Crossing (Little Egypt Records).

You want to know something funny? I talked an 8 ½ month old baby girl out of a tizzy-fit, with her strong-armed in my left hand and a spatula off-handed in my right. Yeah, I cooked a midnight snack with Luka Jane in my arms; waggle your fingers in front of my face about my hot kitchen, moms. We got to watch; sausages sizzle, eggs fry, bread get soft in the toast-en over, feel the crisp window air on our face, and me say, “I got your back” to the baby-sitter.

Along Fourth Avenue and Jefferson Street, characters of all kinds find their way to the greatest treasure a parking lot can offer: Olympia''s most beloved artesian well. The very best water in Thurston County just might spring from that old pipe between spots forty-three and forty-four. Its neck peaks out from cement blocks, with water flowing outward into an almost heart-shaped pool before heading toward a nearby storm drain. A mural with stenciled images of well-goers watches over the humble pipe, reminding visitors of the collective responsibility urged in protecting a shared source of water.

Adventures in Creative Living Pt 2: Reality Check

Like many revolutionary pipe dreams, the reality of the cabin was far less attractive than my hypothesized romantic vision. In many ways the cabin was more functional than I had anticipated. It had both a solar panel for limited light in the evenings and a rainwater collection system. It also sported a propane tank for cooking. Unfortunately, the propane brought living expenses up to par with my current situation. Most disappointing however, was the appearance...
