Father Yod and the Spirit of '76

Woo woo! It finally came — Saira and I each ordered a set. It's a 13 CD boxed set of insane psychedelic rock put out by what amounts to a hippy cult run by Father Yod… Seriously incredible stuff if you like that sort of thing. Captain Trip records just rereleased a limited set of it, so we managed to nab copies.

I also picked up my Maori shirt from Ryan today. It's got to be one of the nicest shirts ever, seriously! I know I said we weren't going to run them again, but they are so nice that I sort of want to (and considering they sold out in basically 24 hours, I think there's a demand). I also got some great mail — some rolls of film, two video tapes of procedures, a CD-ROM of genital tattooing, and some other stuff. I'll go through it later.

Finally, Ryan got his large gauge barbells for BMEshop. As soon as he adds them to inventory, this is where they'll be. I also got my arm traced for another sit on my Frank sleeve on Friday.

13 bottles of beer

I love trying new things. I like trying new piercings. I like driving new cars. I like trying new rendering engines. I like trying new food. …And… I like trying new beer:

I picked all of these up on my way back from FedEx today. Oh, and if you're wondering why BME is offline right now, it's one of two things. First of all, we had a cap of about 7 Mb/s on the site which we lifted this morning… So quite likely the machine just had a heart attack when it found itself doing double that. The other possibility is of course fraud/hacking.

I'll know the details later today. Anyway, if you haven't already, scroll down and look at the shirts. I think we'll run them, I just have to finalize the design and the colors.

New slogan shirts?

So last night we were damn drunk and watching Biography — it included some footage of a gay rights demonstration with signs that said “Thank God I'm Gay” which we both thought was so wonderful (and hilarious) that we thought it might be fun to make shirts.

I really hope no one thinks it's in poor taste; it's intended to be fun. Anyway, tell me what you think.

Death comes soon

As of tomorrow, my trike will be on its way to me. It's disassembled and packed in crates. By the end of the week it should be in Fenton, MI, and then by the end of next week here in Toronto… And then within the month it should be completed!

The nice thing about IAM is that I've met a whole lot of people with knowledge that I don't have — I mentioned slowing the speed of light recently, and a couple people have pointed out that light can be stopped altogether, as well as being made to go even faster! Also, a number of people have mailed me advice on silkscreening (I'm amazed how many IAM members do that professionally). Thanks!
