dawn's virtual veritable cornucopia of simple harmonic motion


we put the F U in fun.

design tool. amazing wallpaper.

gun to your head. it'sa game. of sorts.

skinnier, faster, live arrived today. i must say that cdbaby rocks. they had shipped the cd within 4 hours of placing the order. their e-mail confirmation made me giggle. they offer free cds for repeat customers. they specialize in independent music. they have fun titles for their music styles, such as folk: like ani. they have sounds clips to check out the music before you buy. they have a money back guarantee if you don't like the music you bought. i will be ordering more from them, oh yes.

design tool. wanted fonts. [via strange brew]

dana once mentioned that it was impossible to find stuff in this veritable cornucopia. i've started to put sort of tags on some of the links that i think people may want to find later. for instance the "design tool" above. i've also started putting "shopping" before shopping links. provides a sort of category to search on later. thoughts?


what made my day, case 12 in a series. finally finding a rubber duckie shower curtain. i've been looking for months. don't ask. thanks to dan for his help in finding a store that actually had it in stock.

i'm sorry. i thought they played football at the superbowl. my mistake.

buena vista social club. the music. ibrahim ferrer.

surreal moment of the day [last night, actually]. running into paul szlyk at john harvard's last night. [really need to make the surreal thing into a series. this would be the 3rd time i have used the phrase, surreal moment of the day. there you go. it's a series.]

this would be cooler if it was at least somehow based on your current name, but it's still silly. discover your true name. on the first try, i got Marvellous Orchestrator. and then i played a little more, and the next cool one to pop up was Rhythmic Turtle-Carver.

shakesperian insult generator. Thou puny pottle-deep harpy. [via ben]

in watermelon sugar by richard brautigan is one of my favorite books. it's generally referred to as in watermelon sugar, but the full title on the cover is "In watermelon sugar the deeds were done and done again as my life is done in watermelon sugar." i still remember the first time i ever read it. my dad was straightening up some stuff in the basement. he handed the book to me and said, "here. i think you're old enough for this now." i need to read it again. i need to read more brautigan. i need to figure out why i suddenly have this book on the brain. . .

what made my day, case 11 in a series. this beautiful post by rabi. she says, "did you know friends are the most amazing invention ever?" and i think that is lovely. [another to do: add wokerjabby to where list.]

Controversial Christian theme park to open in Orlando. "The Holy Land Experience, a Christian theme park, is unlike anything Orlando has ever seen. When it opens February 5, visitors will be able to enter a replica of Jesus' tomb, climb the stairs of a faux Herod's Temple and travel down a re-creation of the Via Dolorosa, the street that Jesus walked before he was crucified." of course.

script story #2 [see 1.11 post about the script thing and 1.12 for script story #1]:
one day, i was telling kim [same kim as story #1, not pictured in the storTrooper thing] about something especially sweet that my boyfriend at the time had done [i have no idea what it was anymore]. we were doing the "aaaaaaw isn't that sweet" googlie girlie thing, when kim said, "dawn, i think your boyfriend has my boyfriend's script. can i get it back now. please?"

why the human race is doomed, case 14 in a series. DA prosecutes mom who gave son condoms. what?!? now granted, the article makes it sound like she just handed them over without really discussing it with him. but come on. if she told him to stop, you think he would have? isn't making sure that he is protected a good mom thing to do? isn't acknowledging that he knows what sex is a good mom thing to do? christ. my parents still can't accept the fact that i've probably had sex before.

ok, i am admittedly a huge x files geek. and i always try to give tenthirteen the benefit of the doubt when there are not so great episodes and attempt to decipher what they were trying to do. but sunday's show? it was bad. awful. horrible. i thought i was watching a soap opera during the opening scene. i am losing faith. . . there were a few funny lines, and they made fun of duchovny's name again, which sent me into a giggling fit, but other than that? bad. as tom mccown stated, "When most quality shows have been on the air too long they usually lapse into mediocrity, with only occasional flashes of their former greatness. The X-Files has lapsed into sheer stupidity with occasional flashes of torpor." indeed.

bf: "ok, well, i am just worried cause the reservations are for 7:30 and it's after 7 now. . . "
kim: "no. you're line was: 'you look beautiful now.' let's try that again. honey, don't worry. 5 more minutes and i'll be beautiful."
bf: "you look beautiful now."
kim: "aaaw. thank you!"

tom robbins interview. "What I try to do, among other things, is to mix fantasy and spirituality, sexuality, humor and poetry in combinations that have never quite been seen before in literature. And I guess when a reader finishes one of my books -- provided the reader does finish the book -- I would like for him or her to be in the state that they would be in after a Fellini film or a Grateful Dead concert. Which is to say that they've encountered the lifeforce in a large, irrepressible and unpredictable way and as a result their sense of wonder has been awakened and all of their possibilities have been expanded." tom robbins is my new obsession. and all because of alison, who mentioned once that still life with woodpecker was her favorite book. so i asked for and got it for christmas. and i'm hooked.

what the hell is ginger? "According to the inventor of 'Ginger,' Dean Kamen, his device will be an alternative to products that 'are dirty, expensive, sometimes dangerous and often frustrating, especially for people in the cities.'" more clues. discussion over at metafilter. send along your ideas to be listed here.
me: a trash bag. [hm. the additional clues don't line up with this theory. perhaps the whole thing is a hoax.]
tom: it's a VCR that automatically sets the time so that it doesn't always blink 12:00. Rocket jet pack. Personal transport of some kind. Maybe pedemotive. Fred == flintstone, drove car by pumping his feet, Fred & Ginger. . . Some kind of powered rollerblade. He's an avid aviator, so I'm not ruling out the jetpack either. I'm going to guess that it's person-portable personal trasnportation with a clean power source. Probably ground-based, but maybe a jet pack.... The most realistic is powered rollerblade-type skates, the least realistic is a rocket pack. Or it's a big yellow smiley face with 'This is such a huge scam' written on it.
dave: My first thought was some sort of personal vehicle. Powered walkers? "change the ways cities are designed" hints at some form of transport. Modular buildings? Who knows?
heather: probably has something to do with transportation, can't imagine what yet though.
