Now for some more tip grabblin'... I might've had some second thoughts if reader Steve L. had sent in word of several troubling laws they have on the books down in Florida before Our Lady of the Squirrels and myself picked it as our honeymoon destination of choice. We'll just have to watch our step, I guess... and You'll just have to watch reader Mike A.'s latest video tip, wherein the cruel and sadistic Maury Povitch puts a terrified young woman in one dilly of a pickle!

You know, I think I can sum up one big reason I'm not blogging as much these days... too too too much possum. By which I mean that there's a variety of backyard wildlife to be seen from the window next to me here in Portland, so instead of looking for kooky kollectibles or spanish language Cathy comics I'm tending to sit in the backyard when I have a break from work. Which is not so interesting to read about really But it was pretty crazy out there this morning! I think the juvenile squirrels - the fancy-free youngsters that sometimes start Great Squirrel Migrations - are starting to come out of their nests and have set about exploring the trees and pathways through and between them in the neighborhood. Which they are doing by chasing each other all around from tree to tree, using roofs and cross-street wires for bridges, and generally just going bonkers. Trees are shaking, leaves are flying, squirrels are chattering and scolding... it is something to see, let me tell you. As is this overlooked tip that reader Steve L. sent in awhile back - it's actually one of my Flickr contacts who I hadn't thought to link to on my own before Steve tipped him too... cuz I'm lame like that. But now, after long last: Squirrel Photography (literaleeeeeee).

Work's been monopolizing too much of my time recently to allow for much extracuricular typin', but there is always time to type those three magic words... guinea pig hats. And, now that I'm on a typing roll here, please also indulge me in a spot of philosophical musing: aren't all cavy clothes really costumes? Peruse and ponder...

Sparks - B.C. (live)

Yes, now that I've found out how everybody's been putting YouTube videos on their blogs for ever now, you'll be seeing a lot more of these until I get tired of searching thru their archives. Which'll probably be around the time I get tired of looking at Ron Mael and his moustache. So get comfortable...

As does Ram Jam. Particularly the bassist (who I think was in that 'Sister Christian' scene from Boogie Nights).

Hey, I've got some backlogged tips I need to be bloggin' here very soon (thanks readers Steve 'n' Frances!) but first I'd like to point you to a new 'group pool' I've just started on Flickr, Spirit of '76! We've already got 28 members, though only a few folks have had a chance to add anything to the pool as of yet... but I did track down the photo archives of this church youth camp that were tagged with 1976 and they are totally worth the price of admission (which is, of course, freeee) in themselves! So check it out! And, you know, I definitely encourage all folks to start up their own Flickr accounts too, whether you've got 1976 images you could scan in and share or not. It's free (well, there's Pro accounts too, but it's free if you want) and super easy to sign up for, and a good way to share photos with family and friends and etc. Reader Syd knows the score! So does Wil Wheaton! Don't be a pussy, do it up!
