Ok so I am the super geek (or su if you want to be specific). I've managed to get Linux (Ubunutu) on my iBook. Some may say why? Besides the shear uh, cool factor? Well OSX is beefy, and my poor little computer won't be too happy bout it. I think the better question if why not?

Tom Robbins quote of the week:
" 'But look at you,' Sissy insisted. 'People come from all over to seek your help and you won't let them within forty yards.'
'What makes you think I have anything helpful to give them?'
...'You've told me lots of wonderful things. Don't be coy! You may not be an oracle- I don't know- but you're wise enough to help these people who seek you out, if you chose to.'
'Well I don't choose to.'
'Why not?' By then Sissy was so full of Chink semen she squished when she walked. She felt she had a right to probe his personality.
The old hermit sighed, though the grin never left his lips. 'Look,' he said, 'these young people who seek me out, they're wrong about me. They're looking at me through filters that distort what I am. They hear that I live in a cave on a butte, so they jump to the conclusion that I lead a simple life. Well, I don't and I won't and I wouldn't. Simplicity is for simpletons!' ... 'Life isn't simple; it's overwhelmingly complex. The love of simplicity is an escapist drug, like alcochol. It's an antilife attitude. These 'simple' people who sit around in drab clothes in bleak rooms sipping peppermint tea by candlelight are mocking life. They are unwittingly on the side of death. Death is simple but life is rich. I embrace that richness, the more complicated the better. I revel in disorder and...'
'But your cave isn't disorderly,' protested Sissy. 'It's neat and clean.'
'...I set my cave in order knowing that life's disorder will only mess it up again. That's beautiful, that's right, that's part of the paradox. The beauty of simplicity is the complexity it attracts.'
'The beauty of simplicity, you say? Then you do find value in simplicity. You've contradicted yourself.' ...
'Of course I've contradicted myself. I always do. Only cretins and logicians don't contradict themselves. And in their consistency, they contradict life.' "

Tom Robbins Quote of the Week:
"Tennessee Williams once wrote, 'We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.' Yes, but oh! What a view from that upstairs window! What Tennessee failed to mention was that if we look out of that window with an itchy curiousity and a passionate eye; with a generous spirit and a capacity for delight; and yes, the language with which to support and enrich the thing we see, then it DOESN'T MATTER that the house is burning down around us. It doesn't matter. Let the motherfucker blaze!" --Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates

Tom Robbins Quote of the Week:
"With Julian, it's fast and furious. It's always been sort of desperate. There's such need. We cling to each other, like we were holding on with our genitals to keep from falling into emptiness, a kind of lonely void. I have a feeling that it's like that with a lot of lovers. But with the Chink, it was completely relaxed and smooth and slow and, well, nasty. He giggled and grinned and scratched all the time, and could go for ages without orgasm. A real Roadmaster." -Sissy Hankshaw in Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

T.S. Elliot "Four Quartets"

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-thee
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always-
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

So I thought some might find this quote interesting,
"I can't imagine ever choosing one person for life. It's not that I'm scared of commitment; it's that I'm scared of arguing with someone over whose turn it is to do the dishes, of losing the desire to have sex with the woman lying next to me every night, of taking a back seat in her heart to our children, of resenting someone for limiting my freedom to be selfish." - Neil Strauss

So this weekend was spent at this cool party in Half Moon Bay. They had firespinners, an art studio, full bar. A totally sweet chill space for artists. We all had a good time hanging with interesting people.
Damn ladies, what did I do right in a previous life to be squished between you two?
Fire spinners making my photography look cool.
How many eyes can you find?
Andrew lookin all sexy.
