If you're into reading about antiquated social mores and quaint 50s attitudes about things, check out mystery date, which is very very fun. especially in printed form, if you can find it.

while looking at pitas pages, I saw herjazz, which in addition to being interesting, also has some very good-looking cake in the background.

there was a recent article in the post concerning quilombos, and if you happen to know portuguese, you may also want to check this out. (second link courtesy of patrick hall)

Here is an intriguing photo series of Chloe Sevigny posing as warhol hanger-on Edie Sedgwick. From blairmag, which apparently isn't coming out with new issues anymore, which is really very disappointing.

Would you like to say something to a collection of world leaders? In giant letters on the side of a Swiss mountain? I knew you would. That's what this site is all about. from the New York Times, again.

yesterday, there was this very interesting article in the New York Times about isolated communities in Brazil which have retained aspects of african culture. very interesting. must look more into this.

So, after mucking around with geocities a bit, about half of my web page is up. well, two pages, so I'll probably be putting up more over the next few days. but the point is is that it looks nicer than the old one, although I plan on using some the old pages from over there. I really really wish I had photoshop right now. and a scanner.

Otherwise, I have recently acquired a few good cds. I got this bis cd, and still have my eyes on this other one. I also got st etienne's tiger bay, which, by the way has some fabulous fabulous cover art. And not just that classy picture of them on the front. There's also a sort of mid-nineteenth-century painting (if you could call it that) featuring them in a rustic setting, all dressed in period outfits, which sounds tacky but somehow doesn't really look as tacky when you actually see it.

Inauguration today. Big protest down the block, along with some smaller ones.

Otherwise, I have been checking out some very worthwhile other weblogs - ribbit and mooselessness, both of which I happen to like rather muchly.

recently, things have been rather crazy here. really. like you wouldn't believe. For some reason, the frustration came to a boil when I tried to move my redesigned university of chicago page to some free web hosting (geocities in particular). Geocities sucks, a lot. the first page I ftped up, the title page, a very very simple page with one picture and really a rather nice minimalist page, was horribly mangled by some random string of code that sprawled across the page. and then geocities decided that other pages that I wanted to upload just didn't exist. It was very very frustrating, and I think that I'm just going to try someone else, like tripod. I guess I should go to epinions and epinionate or something, though I haven't really done anything like that before. but then again, I am really really dissatisfied as a customer and just did not not not have a good experience with geocities.

I should have posted this yesterday, I guess. But this is the sort of thing that people always remember a few lines from, but never read the whole thing. Martin Luther King Jr Day is always such an odd holiday.

I almost forgot about Fametracker. Cruel, but I fame has its price, or there wouldn't be a need to audit it.

It seems that some people have gone a little more extreme than the bionic pie brigade.
