June 2006 Archives

Found on Pitchfork's feature 100 Awesome Music Videos which features embedded You Tube vids of some true classics and gems that I've never seen before including the above which is Basement Jaxx's "Where's Your Head At?" from 2001.

I grew up addicted to MTV but once I got to college I only caught 120 Minutes every now and then. The only music videos I see on TV now are when I'm able to Tivo Subterranean. There's a great site that lists the video playlists from Subterranean here: http://www.altmusictv.com/sub/index.html


Found this while researching Domo-kun. I have no idea why I'm into the little brown monster from Japan.

Summer Solstice 2006

| No Comments

I'm always upbeat on the longest day of the year. According to my Tidelog it doesn't get dark here in LA until 9:12 p.m. Tomorrow the days begin to get shorter but summer will be with us until September 22. I'm looking forward to ocean swimming and surfing without a wetsuit for the next three or four months.

The head injury is doing well. I had stitches taken out and the scar is getting smaller each and every day. I saw a neurologist yesterday and today I'm having my first MRI which should be an interesting experience. I'll bring my point and shoot and maybe snap a few pics for my Flickr site.

One of the reasons I publish this blog is to share interesting links with my readers. Lately I've just been bookmarking like crazy using del.icio.us and digg:

Digg is @ http://digg.com/ and del.icio.us is of course @ http://del.icio.us/

A few months ago I tried out the web browser Flock and kind of migrated back to Firefox because of the great extensions. Flock just came out with their first official beta release and I'm posting this blog entry with Flock's built in blogging tool that features a drag and drop GUI. So far so good.

Here's a pic test:

15 stitches

Last Saturday night as I was packing for my Sunday morning flight to Philadelphia I fell in our bathroom and split my forehead open on our sunken tub. Cay has a few grisly pics on her Flickr site. Not for the squeamish.

Cay took me to the Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center ER where a young Dr. McCain stitched me up nicely. It's a y-shaped scar right above my left eyebrow. What a klutz I am.

They did a CATSCAN and on Tuesday I got a phone call from a Doctor Ghurabi saying I have a 2.5mm colloidal cyst in the 3rd ventricle of my inner brain that is non-cancerous and incidental. A benign tumor. It has nothing to do with the head injury. Who knows how long it's been there? I see a neurologist next week and he/she will probably be doing an MRI. Cay has been thoroughly researching colloid cysts and I'm confident it won't effect me. My dad has one and they are fairly common. Possibly heritable.

So my trip to Philly has been put on indefinite hold and Cay is off school as of this afternoon. I'm on a wait and see basis right now as far as plans for the rest of the summer go. I would still love to do a couple triathlons in the early fall especially since I bought a new bike at the beginning of June. I found a Merlin Proteus full Campagnolo Record with Ksyrium SL wheels at I. Martin in Beverly Hills. It's an incredible bike. I feel like a pro riding this thing. I can't believe I've been competing with the old steel framed Panasonic that I rode for twenty years.
