LA adventures continue! The other day Clint and I rode up to Griffith Park (apparently Central Park:NY::Griffith Park:LA). We hiked up to Griffith Observatory to get a good view of the smog. While we were there we saw a show at the Planetarium about Mayans and the fabric of spacetime, and the reasons why time […]Read more "A Day of Sport, Part 2"
Part V: Queue Enthusiasts I was thinking earlier today about all of the different forms of transportation that I’ve been part of over the past month. Here is a list: Car Plane Bike Boat Jet Ski Bus Subway Motorcycle By Foot Anyway, my first few days hanging out in LA have been real good, despite […]Read more "Exploding Gophers"
I made it to LA in one piece. I’m on Clint’s couch right now rejoicing in the fact that I am not drenched in sweat like in New York. Anyway, let me wrap up my last few days in New York. Sunday, on a whim, we looked up some comedy in the area and found […]Read more "Flatten and Spread out"
I’ve been talking to a handful of people in New York over the past week and marveling at how much there is going on here. ALL THE TIME. EVERY DAY. EVERY NIGHT. I’ve heard the same thing phrased a few different ways now, that being successful/staying sane/staying healthy is all about being able to choose […]Read more "One of One and a half"
Part IV: The Anthill So I made it to New York without a hitch, other than the fact that its about twelve-thousand degrees here. I have been having an absolute blast so far. They typical day has gone like this: 1. wake up quick, right about noon 2. spend four or five hours walking around […]Read more "The greatest work of Johnny Appleseed"
Thursday was my mom’s birthday. My Dad, my uncle and four of my cousins went to play disc golf at this course that is allegedly the third largest in the country or something like that. We knew we were in trouble on the first hole. The tee and the goal were each on separate hills […]Read more "A Day of Sport"
Part III: Family TraditionSo after some really intense weather, and some classic southern scenery, we finally made it up to Pentwater, Michigan last Saturday night. I guess that the story of the first picture is that the water tower used to be above the Florence Mall, but the city folk didn’t like an advertisement on […]Read more "Funny Tan Lines and Family Affairs"
This is my paper that I wrote for my masters, and I’m going to try to bring it back down to Earth. I’m going to try to give links to relevant topics that I think maybe need a bit more explaining. ::Let me first suggest that you read this other cute little write-up I did […]Read more "In case you were curious about Cantor Sets"
Part II: Amurrikah With Fae and a narrowly-convinced Tim in tow, we loaded up and drove down to Nokomis to go to the beach and see the fireworks. I should state this again. “So it pretty much has not stopped raining since I’ve gotten back. And this isn’t Oregon Haze, this is Florida Thunderstorm rain. […]Read more "Combusting Chemicals"
Part I – Hejira So, Corvallis is just another town that I used to live in. I packed up all my stuff in a storage unit on June 29th and skipped town. I went up and stayed with Megan in Portland that night and she drove me to the airport the next afternoon. We adventured […]Read more "I’m changing all my strings, I’m gonna write another traveling blog."
