Well, today I'm working on a website for some lawyers, and what I want to do with the major links on the homepage; they have gavel rollovers already, but I also want to make them go "KLONK" when you click on them. So this afternoon, I went around the kitchen using the back of my cleaver on various pots and pans and whatnot to make percussive sounds that I thought might work. I used my video camera to record the sounds. The last four "KLONKs" in this video are the ones that I'll be using.
NB; I'm attaching a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license to this piece, so if you happen to need any klonk sounds for rollover gavels or anything else whatsoever, hey, by all means use these until your little heart's content. With my blessings.

West Oakland Astral Projection
For the past year or so, whenever I'm reading a book, I'll flash on this neighborhood in West Oakland that I used to frequent, but seldom get to in my present life. I'm working on putting together a video that captures this feeling. This piece is a short sketch that I whipped together today.

Ms Holmes is my barber. Has been for years. She cut my hair yesterday, and whenever I get a haircut, the cyst on the side of my head becomes much more visible.
So as it turns out, today I had to go see Dr Stumpf (my internist at Kaiser) about my blood-sugar levels. But when he saw what was growing out my head, he requisitioned a lumpectomy.
I've had this bump on my head for as long as I can remember. Never did a thing for me. I'll be glad when it's gone. Thanks, Ms Holmes! Thanks, Dr Stumpf!
In the hallway that leads to our apartment. That hallway also leads to the laundry room, so occasionally somone will lose something and it stays where it dropped until the person who lost it, or Eddis, picks it up. So these bloomers and a single black sock turned up the other day. Alright. No mystery there.
Then, yesterday, the underpants were gone, but the sock remained. I'm having a hard time seeing that scenario.

Watch the video
Everything's falling apart. My video camera's got the heebie-jeebies, my F:\ drive has gone Alzheimers, and my bike has the arthritis of the crank and is throwing spokes right and left.So today I took my bike to the shop where I bought it. Bay Area Bikes. They were excellent; fixed it all up, free of charge. While they worked on it, I had the opportunity to have a contemplative burrito and put my problems in perspective.

Something that I can hand to people who have allowed me to video them. So they can go there (come here) and see themselves.
Okay okay okay. It doesn't look so hot on this page, but that's because I used the colors from the blog to make the card. Honestly, on any other background, it looks like something, anyway.
