Photography for Liberty at the Ballard Locks

The unsupportable events chronicled here have hit far too close to home. We have created, in the fuzzy-headed state of mind following 9/11, a class of thuggish cop who not only misunderstands his mission but is also apparently deaf to reason. We have a long period of work ahead to rebuild from the damage that we have done to ourselves.

I'll be attending this event tomorrow: Ballard Locks Photo Workshop

I'll be wearing this badge:

Wretched Excess vs. Charming Solicitude

Yahoo! News - Squirrel fears over Rooney ring If this had happened in a US park, the squirrels would have been blamed for the ring not being found, and turned into a coat. And several drunken yokels would manage to get themselves killed. Possibly by squirrels, but more likely by accidental shooting.

When a Rahkshi Plays at Being a Vahki

Not so much a MOC as a re-arrangement of parts. The Rahkshi and the Vahki are clearly related somehow. I wanted to see what would happen if a Rahkshi tries to transform the same way a Vahki. It turns out that everything needs to be backwards. The Matoran torso is rotated around the x axis, the shoulders are rotated around the y axis, the arms and legs are swapped (but not the feet and hands!) Also, the legs are connected backwards and upside-down. The result is recorded here:

Bush's Last Campaign! Hallelujah!

Wee Bionicle Frog

Bush administration slouches toward martial law

CNN.com - Officials discuss how to delay Election Day - Jul 11, 2004

I almost wish Halliburton would just declare Dubya "caesar" so that the armed rebellion can get started in earnest.
