Puppet Angel

A blind man teaching an android how to paint?

A blind man teaching an android how to paint? That's gotta be worth a couple of pages in somebody's book.

Loooooooooooong day.

It started with helping frozendragon get all the big heavy stuff out of the basement and over to michaellee's house because she had gotten a truck rental for today. After that hellbob & I headed on over to our friend Art's house to help paint the outside of that so that he can get it ready to sell.
Things I learned.
1. paint sprayers are uber-cool
2. mole chicken is yummy
3. I am old and I really ache right now
4. A not very big bat house can hold 20-25 brown bats

I'm betting that I am stiff as all hell tomorrow. Urg.


I've started a webpage to collect links & downloads & such for free mp3s that I find on the internets. A lot of it is distributed under creative commons licensing. Some of it is links to the site where the copyright holder has made it available.

If you find an artist you like, support them by either buying their music, or donating money, or both!


Can't Stop The Serenity

Joss Whedon's Serenity on the big screen.
On Joss Whedon's birthday.
To benefit Joss Whedon's favorite charity, Equality Now.

31 Screenings Confirmed As Of June 03, 2006
Australia, Canada, United States

The Minneapolis screening: June 22, Minneapolis MN (USA) - Riverview Theater

But I'm too lazy to go all the way to a theater.
And I have a really big TV.
And I have a brand new comfy couch.

So, Friday June 23, Serenity charity screening at the HellHouse! I figure we can easily fit about 10 people comfortably.
Let's say about 7:30 or so.

Bring a donation for Equality Now and come watch the Big Damn Movie on my Big Damn Red Couch. $5, $50, $500, whatever amount you're comfortable with. Or you can PayPal a donation through the www.mnfirefly.com website.

Also, please RSVP so we don't get more people than will fit and so I can plan on how many people I will be feeding! To RSVP just reply in the comments here!

There are two ways to fight a battle like ours. One is to whisper in the ear of the masses, try subtlely and gradually to change the gender expectations and mythic structures of our culture. That's me. The other is to step up and confront the thousands of atrocities that are taking place around the world on an immediate, one-by-one basis. That's a great deal harder, and that's Equality Now. It's not about politics; it's about basic human decency.
