Continued Flickr Uploadings – Sedona

Since I upgraded my Flickr account, I have been exporting most of the non-horse.jpg pictures. They are not super-well organized yet, but they are good enough. Here are some pictures from Sedona, Arizona. There is also a picture of my bloody leg when I ran into a cactus while trying to get an interesting picture of some stupid rock.


Honey-soaked Dried Apricots

It is a well known fact to only me that I like dried apricots. When my dad found this out, he went to the Neiman Marcus Epicurean section and got me these Australian Glace Apricots. I don’t know what Australia has to do with the equation, but these things are amazing. I think they are soaked in honey for days until they get all plump and bloated, much like Will and I are about to be on our upcoming trip to Korea.

The Singularity is Near

I’ve known about this book ever since it came out, and I know basically what it already says because I keep up with Kurzweil… but I have finally gotten around to actually reading it. I’m going to have to put this on the recommendation list for all my friends. It provides a pretty compelling vision of the future.

Another Great Flickr Photo

I found this photo on Flickr yesterday. It is about the ugliest cat I have ever seen.

Big Pictures on New Theme

Okay after a lot of monkeying around, I finally got the css and php set up for the new theme. I have no idea why I spent so much time doing it, but I occasionally get pretty anal about some things. I re-jiggered the columns to allow the medium sized Flickr pictures in here. So I will test it out with one of my favorite pictures from Costa Rica.

Still Into Flickr

I am really spending a lot of time in Flickr, uploading and categorizing my stuff from my iPhoto. It is very easy to do, and I am surprised how many people on Flickr have stumbled onto my pictures. Anyway, here is an older pic from last year in Copenhagen, with Peter – one of my friends I met in Eve-Online.


Great Flickr Photo

Now that I have started using Flickr, I am really into it. I can’t believe all the great photographers out there… I was surfing around today and found this incredible shot:

David Brent is the greatest

Now that I have watched both DVDs of The Office (BBC), I can say with all certainty that David Brent, the Ricky Gervais character, is in my Top Five Funny People. He just edged out Carrot Top.

Stuck in Customs Blog Update (from loosely related Blog Name Redundancies)

It’s just not easy maintaining the tech side of the blog. I spend more time than I like using FTP programs, much like I did back in 1994. It’s been 12 years! Why aren’t things more transparent… Actually that new iLife iWeb looks really nice (watch that flash demo) – that’s how all blogging should be. Even though I am an Apple guy, I don’t think I will switch because I am sure the WordPress / .Mac integration is a disaster.

The refresh problem on my blog should be better now that I took off that Wordspew Shoutbox… so now you should be able to see the videos without a problem.

Most of my old entries still do not have pictures since I moved everything to Flickr. Flickr is really great and I am digging it. Be sure to Friend me on there if you are a Flickr user – my username is stuckincustoms.
