Last Weeks Interestings recently posted about Lucky Me Mixtapes. Go download the podcast. Its funky.
Speaking of funky, I am reading Kill All Your Darlings by Luc Sante. In a short story called I Thought I Heard Buddy Boldon Say, Sante describes how the word funky came to be popular - eventually leading to a type of music. Highly recommend. The way he uses words describes more than the words themselves or maybe its just his command of the language....

The past year has been a little hectic, hence the lack of posts. I am currently doing some much needed recharging. There is so much that I want to talk to you about but we're going to take some baby steps. I recently went up near Montpelier, Vermont to visit a friend who is building a self-sustainable home. He has built an outhouse, revitalized an old cabin you'll see below, made gorgeous wooden lawn chairs, planted an orchard, preserved a bog.... you get the point. After my own year of balls-out work to rebrand a somewhat massive computer company(obvious not alone), this visit really put things in perspective. I don't really know what this means but I hope the impact will be significant.
4 of us stayed in this wonderful little cabin
This last photo is sadly out of focus but I didn't feel like taking it again. These are various mosses and fungi I collected from the trip. They will nicely compliment the collection from my visit to Ashland, Oregon.
