I really planned on making it to George’s for a run and a beer last night. However, time passed quickly yesterday and I lost track of it while I was resurrecting Jalapeño Beach.
I miss every other goal this month, but at least I accomplished one!
The process of uploading software and tweaking configurations to get the photoblog back on line took much longer than I expected. The process has yet to be completed as I’ve not found a way to get the photoblog to be displayed without having to tack the “pixelpost/” onto the end of its URL. I’ve attempted to forward “www.jalapenobeach.com” to “www.jalapenobeach.com/pixelpost/” but that seems to fail. All of the Pixelpost code resides in a folder off the root called “pixelpost”, should I not be so anal and just move all of the files up to the root directory?
If any of you networking gurus have tips I’d certainly like to hear them.

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
Let’s say I want sex with a woman. If she doesn’t want sex with me and I allow myself to accept this fact completely then I will probably no longer want her in that way either.
But I doubt it.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
Hey Amazon, How About Using Some Common Sense!!!
Last night I opened the box I received from Amazon on Tuesday. Much to my dismay, Amazon couldn’t be bothered to put fifty cents worth of padding into their box in order to protect the $400 lens I purchased from bouncing around during shipping. What the fuck, yo?! While the lens is packed tightly into its own box would it have killed them to protect it further against the inevitable roughing it would take in shipping? I am more than a little frustrated with Amazon about this and am trying to figure out how to report this poor customer experience. I am even considering returning the lens to Amazon on the principle that I purchased precision glass for my camera and I’d appreciate it if they’d protect my purchase as if they were buying it themselves.
I’d Buy That For
At least Amazon provides reliable downloads of music.
Yesterday I heard that Paul Westerberg (you may of heard of a little band he was in during the 1980’s called The Replacements) had released a new album called “49:00” on Tuesday and was selling it for $0.49. The album which consists of one song entitled “49:00”, which is inexplicably only 43:55 in length, is rather entertaining. I’ve given it at least one full listen and venture to guess that it will be the best four bits I spend this week.
ITP Flickr Pic
One of the many benefits of staying home yesterday was cooking a batch of chicken wings for lunch. There are a few pre-cooked photos on Flickr, but this shot is my favorite.. the aftermath.
Sadly there is no great shot of the cooked wings because I let my bbq get too hot and burned the heck out of the wings. The meat was delicious however…
A Band Without A Drummer? Inconceivable!
Tonight I will be haunting Variety Playhouse again, hopefully camera in hand, to see/hear Tilly And The Wall. I am really looking forward to the show. I’ve seen the band once before and pulled a patented Paulie last-minute concert cancellation once as well.
Tilly And The Wall is unique in that they have no drummer. The source of the band’s percussion is a tap dancer. I shit you not!
Oh YouTube, Your Value To Me Grows Daily
I don’t do drugs, but if I did I would certainly feel like I was on a fucked up trip when I stumbled upon this YouTube video yesterday.
The video is of my all-time favorite band Husker Du (wish I could easily type umlauts) performing and being interviewed on the Late Show hosted by Joan Rivers.
