Saw an old associate yesterday, and our short, in-the-middle-of-the-mall-driveway chat, prompted some thought about what I did during and before twenty-tem . . . Thanks Larry . . . was good seeing you.

2011

Being the second day of 2011, it seems like a good time to update the status of Old School – NEW World . . . maybe the title should be Old School IN a NEW World, meaning, that the 21st Century has finally caught up with me . . . a 25th Century Buck Rogers, technology loving, I-no- resabation-Buchinder . . .

2010

And today, the day after yesterday, I’m cleaning out the 2010 closet . . . getting rid of the stuff that I thought was indispensable – the excess baggage, the straws that would slow the new year down . . . the year of the rabbit/hare . . . I prefer the hare mostly cos they be crazy BIG-ass take-the-red pill, DOWN the rabbit HOLE motherfuckers in the springtime . . . you know, like the March Hare, been hanging with the Hatter, having “tea” and stuffing the Dormouse in the teapot . . . yeh . . .

2010

It seems that there are two or three cycles in my year . . . June through August, September, October and November, then December through May . . . that’s 3 . . . uh . . . O.K.

I got this e-mail from WordPress about my blog . . . I could post the wHOLE text but instead, here’s a taste:

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers.
This blog (Old School – NEW World) was viewed about 5,500 times in 2010. That’s about 13 full 747s.
OMFG!!

In 2010, I wrote 150 new posts, growing the total archive of thie blog to 184 posts.
The busiest day of the year was October 30th with 51 views.
The most popular post that day was Gallery . . . (Did I post nekkie content?) . . .

Where did they come from? Some visitors came searching, mostly for neytiri, higozuiki, kinoe no komatsu, avatar bow and arrow, and shunga.

kinoe no komatsu . . .

. . . ignoring someone

I am buried under 30 pairs of Levi’s and other assorted denim jeans . . .

SPAM

Where was I . . . Oh, if you have a blog on WordPress, you know that there’s some sort of gadget (askismet) that decides if a comment is legit or SPAM!! Sometimes I can tell by the message, for example, a bunch of text saying things like: “29***61dksoi@(ena)MM+-324l” . . . etc, etc, etc. OR . . . “#9.1The Higest BitRate JAV Hardcore High speed Download.” Hmmm, the last one I deciphered: “highest birthrate/jet assisted vehicle” and “Hardcore high speed download” refers to premature ejaculation . . . Onanista propaganda . . .

SPAM

. . . some alien creature is trying to trick me into divulging classified information about predator camouflage codes . . .

SPAM

The following was categorized as spam: “Sending someone a message…they don’t reply…they must be out…then they post a Facebook status. Great, they’re ignoring me.” Now I recognized the sender’s address and the problem is . . . this was a second comment tagged as spam from 歡迎光臨 SEOMAX . . . (I forgot what the first one was . . .). Oh yeh, the site is not in English!! . . . I don’t want to dig out my kanji code book and try to decipher the characters . . . AND I have a Facebook accnt but I haven’t used it for many months . . . so I have become SUSPICIOUS . . . and, I’m ignoring someone . . . and setting out sticky traps (the BIG ones) in various pathways known to be frequented by shadowy beings . . .

MY “pencil” story . . .

Today fakekarl (FK) had a new post, but I must say that the satirical wit has dulled . . . when I read the earlier stuff it was like a needle in my left index finger . . . fakekarl was my new Lenny Bruce . . . now, while I listen to Cibo Matto (a new thing, thanks to a 14 year old genie), I decided to give old FK one more chance before I delete the link . . . I can do that you know.

PENCIL

Back to Cibo Matto (“crazy food” in Italian) for a second or two. . . Cibo Matto reminds me of Vermillion Pleasure Night . . . the song “Know Your Chicken” is a song that could be from “Midnight Cooking” . . .

PENCIL

Artichoke” is probably my favorite track at this particular point in time . . . “peel my petals” . . . “Know Your Chicken” and “Birthday Cake” are right there with their collective noses pressed hard against the glass. (Songs are from “Pom Pom: The Essential Cibo Matto” CD). “Pom” in Korean means, “spring” – here in the U.S. “pom pom” is what the cheerleaders shake while they prance and jump, causing their butts to shiver and twitch – happens at HS pep rallies, basketball and football games!!

PENCIL

I’m a fan of the real Karl Lagerfeld, and for a while FK was as close to the real thing as I could get without leaving the couch. But I think I’ve eaten all the choice bits, so maybe it’s time to move on . . .

PENCIL

Maybe I’ll renew some old acquaintances . . . you know, like MY pencil . . . and sketch book, and Cynthia, La Petenera . . . or . . . I can’t remember names . . . but I do know that the little “retro” Pentax Optio 43WR that I bought for my oldest daughter several years ago, will be pressed into service, as I bought a new SD card for it yesterday (2 GB)

PENCIL

Here’s some pics taken with the Optio 43WR . . .

. . . . Gojira!! (Godzilla)

PENCIL

. . . starting to get back to it . . .

PENCIL

. . . I spent some time fondling the new iPod Touch at Best Buy in Carson City NV, on my way back into the void.

Why am I talking about this? Well, I get tired of taking the Canon out of its bag, turning it on and then framing the shot . . . so, the little Pentax is like “. . . wham, bam, thank you m’am . . . ” short and sweet, no commitment . . . Everyone remembers the “Diana” camera, little plastic toy that leapt into stardom in the artsy photo world way back, like 1970’s and 80’s.

PENCIL

. . . I wanted one (a Diana) but settled for a Spartaflex (2 ¼ sq format) – I don’t know where I got it . . . anyway, I did some work with it using out-of-date film and developer.

. . . the ghost of Diana Vreeland was shaking my hand or something . . .

Oh, if you get a “Big and Tasty” meal at Mac D’s, eat it in the dining area or park somewhere, because it will leak in your lap if you try to drive and eat . . .
