The Crucible's Fire Art Festival

What can I say. . .lots of FIRE!! And tons of space for large noisy stuff! I will post photo's or a link to photo's later.

My recommendations:
Take BART, they're shuttling people back and forth to the site.

Be there as close to the start of the event as possible so you can see stuff that is not light based art better.

Wear layers of clothing, last night was pretty nice, but a tad chilly if you're ears are sensitive luckily I brought my ear muffs.

Bring ear plugs.

Take your headlamp for the port-a-potties.

Don't trip over the power cables.

Just so you know:
The are multiple ATM's so you can pick up cash there if you forget along the way.

There are 2 food vendors, I hear the crepes are great. . line was too long and the event was almost over by the time I decided I was hungry. . sigh. . .

Clothing vendors as well as fire and light toy vendors.

I had breakfast today with my friend Patricia (she's visiting from Boston) and gifted me with her mothers brass zills from the 70's! Yeah!! They are very cool and sound great. I'm very excited about this gift because currently I have 2 sets of cheap zills and I really hate the way they sound. . .too tin like for my ears. I think the cheap ones will make their way to a new home very soon.

Helicopters above Union Square/Financial district

WHY WHY WHY are these people buzzing all our buildings around here?? (I'm at Post and Kearney)

We've been listening to this since before noon. . . .

They've been hovering off and on above as well as landing on the Grand Hyatt on Grant at Sutter.

There is no obvious film crew or respective film related trailers . . . I can't find anything online. . .

anyone know what the deal is?? Though we are all aggravated by the noise here in the office, we're still curious as to what all the hustle and bustle is about.

My brother and sister-in-law love me

I just returned from an evening in San Jose with them. They passed me a much belated birthday present of BOOKS!!! It's the Twilight series of 4 books, which I was about to purchase myself. I've not seen the movie yet, despite loving vampire stories. So I'll read this before I rent the flick.

WHY WHY WHY I have to have male roommates that can not fucking manage to clean up their own urine spots from the bathroom floor???? I don't think it's too much to ask that they clean up after themselves!!!! lazy fuckers. . . .

In my life I've lived with 14 males (family and roommates), NONE of them EVER left any urine spots on the floor.

One less punk rocker. . . . R.I.P. Lux Interior of the Cramps>1=28102

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A publicist for the pioneering horror-punk band the Cramps says co-founder and lead singer Lux Interior has died. He was 60.

Publicist Aleix Martinez says Interior, whose real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser, died Wednesday of a pre-existing heart condition at a Glendale, Calif., hospital.

Interior met his future wife Kristy Wallace — who would later take the stage name Poison Ivy — in Sacramento in 1972.

They moved to New York and started the Cramps, with Interior on lead vocals and Ivy on guitar. The group was part of the late '70s early punk scene centered at Manhattan clubs like CBGB alongside acts such as the Ramones and Patti Smith.

Their unmistakable sound was a lo-fi synthesis of rockabilly and surf guitar staged with a deviant dose of midnight-movie camp. Some called it "psychobilly."

Joke sent to me by my cousin

It's sort of politically incorrect. . . .

The Wal-Mart greeter

After landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day.

About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.

As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly, 'Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?'

The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, 'Hell no, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7. Why the heck would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?'

So I replied, 'I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am, I just couldn't believe you got laid twice. Have a good day.'

My supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work....

Litke Properties

Has anyone ever rented from this landlord in the bay area before? I believe that they are mostly in SF and a bit of rental property in Oakland.

If you have or are currently, please let me know. I'm doing some personal research in my quest for future housing.

Thank you, Kim
