This isn't exactly timely I know. But we were watching one of those vapid VH1 shows tonight and Boy George was making light of his 80s self. But I wasn't focused on his words because I couldn't take my eyes off the black egg yolk that had run down his head. Now I've seen him sporting this look before and I didn't understand it then either. However tonight, I came to the conclusion that he's lost his mind. There's really no other explanation.

A crude little illustration of why glasses (or lenses) are in front of my eyes most waking hours. Interestingly, my -2.25 correction equals only mild myopia according to the experts whose job it is to know Though if I think about it, I suppose I could go without the correction if pressed. It's just annoying

I can't believe how gorgeous it's been here of late. Yesterday, Marc, Matt, David and I decided to take advantage of it and headed up to Marin for a quick hike. I'd heard about the Cataract Falls trail near Fairfax. All the raves didn't prepare me for the drama of the trail though. Amazing that it's only 45 minutes or so out of the city. Also odd to ponder that as we were clamoring up the mountain under the canopy of redwoods on this 70 day, the northeast was getting hit by the heaviest snowfall on record.

From the Proof that Designers, Print Producers and Press Operators Don't Proofread file, Autoblog found this incomprehensible sign at the Chicago Auto Show. Now I'd guess that the intent is to keep the lil'Rascal crowd under control but you'd think someone would have caught the implication of using the generic vehicles term at an auto show. What's next? No nudity at the adult video awards?

Seems that our friends over at Lincoln are parking the Zephyr nameplate already. In a boneheaded marketing move that's gotta set some sort of speed record, a car that's been on dealer's lots for oh three months maybe is getting a new name. Worse, they're trading a name that's got historical significance and a bit of cachet for one of those numeral-initial bastardizations. This is the Way Forward, Mr. Bill?
