March 26, 2000 – this took place right down the street from where we were living, at the time. i went, set up my (still) camera, and a tripod, and took 30 photos, in rapid succession, with the intent of making an animated .gif of the process… now, 17 years later, i have actually completed that task. go me.
hmm… F11 seems to put firefox into full-screen mode and back again… interesting…
so, SACBO was last weekend. there were no snake suspenderz, but thaddeus and i had some fun with electronic devices for most of saturday.
the most amusing (to me, anyway) part was that, as you can probably see in the picture, thaddeus was playing a guitar-like object. it is, in fact, a guitar, but it had some substantial modifications that included a wireless pickup and a MIDI-actuated sound-producing device that could make any sound you might imagine. there were obvious things, like a sitar-sound, and somewhat less obvious things, like a saxophone and a flute. when the inevitable tourists came, and thaddeus was playing a “normal” guitar-like sound, they would walk on by without even looking up from their screens (really, i don’t understand why people go to festivals like this and spend all day poking through farcebook rather than experiencing life), but when he was playing the saxophone-sound, people would look around to figure out where the sound was coming from, since it was clear — to them, anyway — that there was nobody actually playing a saxophone… and, frequently, they would keep looking for several minutes, looking behind other peoples’ cars, behind the pavilion, and such-like… 😂
sunday, i was the only snake there (there were other musicians, like ranger and annie-bannannie, but i didn’t actually play with them), so i didn’t set up the canopy, but i did play music (sold a few CDs as well), and was joined by this marvelous little girl and her slide whistle…
which may or may not be upside down on your device… my impression was that the lady who took the video may or may not have been fully clued in on the operation of her “smart” phone…
apart from that, there were the expected, and the new art-cars and art-cartists, and, with the exception of the sunday morning security-guard who was being a DICK and not letting me into the fair (i went a block down the street and got in without a problem. 8P ), a reasonably good time was had by… well, me anyway…
nothing except #drumpf and depression happening for the past couple of weeks.
moe stepped on zorah and dislocated her hip (zorah’s, not moe’s), which, naturally, mortified moe, and made it so that zorah has to undergo at least eight weeks of crate-rest before we will discover whether or not she has to have surgery.
the two ounces of space queen that i was gushing about is either not space queen, or, if it is, it lacks the characteristic flavour of space queen, which is one of the reasons i like it. on the other hand, it was cheap enough that i’m not going to complain. 😐
SACBO next weekend. 19th wedding anniversary on the 21st. OCF in three weeks.
one of my favourite strains of medical cannabis is space queen.
a year ago, i declined to pay $420 an ounce for space queen at a dispensary in auburn. in fact, after they told me how much it was, i walked out without saying another word. $420 an ounce is WAY too expensive! 😡
six months ago, i was able to buy space queen at another dispensary, in tacoma, for between $280 and $320 an ounce… the upper end of which is verging on too expensive.
i’ve been going to commencement bay cannabis for about three months now. at first, they didn’t have space queen at all. then, when they got it in, i was paying $180 an ounce — with a 10% discount, because i am over 55 years old… *(BONUS!)*
two days ago, i went to commencement bay cannabis, and bought TWO ounces, for $90 a piece, with a 10% discount, making them $81 a piece…
THIS is how competitive pricing works!
to continue the post started here, it appears that #drumpf “leaked” code-word-protected intelligence about the current US fight against #daesh to russians, and the media is all up in arms about it. the washington post (a decidedly UN-“fake news” source) reported about it in detail yesterday…
but drumpf and his surrogates have stated that this is 100% false — however, after saying that it’s 100% false, drumpf actually tweeted an admission that he had, indeed leaked classified information — but they are bolstering this claim by saying that he has the right to do so, because he’s the president.
furthermore, there have been several other “legitimate” news sources that say that drumpf is a “shoe-in” for the 2020 election, in spite of the democretins gearing up to regain the majority in the 2018 election.
i’m not sure how the world is going to survive eight years of oprobrious orange “leadership”, but if this goes on much longer, it’s looking as though I won’t survive that long. 😡
