The Telectroscope is here!

Rob @ 11:10 AM

The Telectroscope, ostensibly a massive telescope burrowed through the Earth connecting New York to London, England.

Of course, it's really just a massive pair of steampunked-out high-definiton webcams with a fun backstory, but how freaking cool is that anyway? I can't wait to check this out.

less than three

Rob @ 11:47 AM

As we parted company at insane o'clock AM after a long working night, I said to Grey (without humor or sarcasm or anything but honesty,) "thanks for dealing with my bullshit."

"Likewise," she responded in kind.

This sort of thing reminds me how rare and special our friendship is. I love my unrelated sister.

In other news, if I were a lady of the feminine persuasion, this is precisely the sort of awesome thing I would wear all the freaking time.

alternative health care

I'm an unlicensed anesthesiologist. The tool of my trade is a large cast-iron skillet administered cranially at high velocity.

Like whoah.

Rob @ 8:38 PM

In a quite lovely, minimally-typoed gesture from our pals, Grey Frequency and I were given shout-outs on the staff page of the latest 2600.

Collect this issue immediately. In fact, get one to read, and one more to put in a polyethylene sleeve and stash in a vault, since we're quite sure magazine collectors of the future will be all over this like stink on rice.

In related news, The Last HOPE (of which Grey and I are on staff) is looming ever closer. Stay glued to that site for pre-registrations and goodies.

Anyone who tracks me down at the conference and mentions this blog post will receive a free hug.
