[From Neverwas Haul]

The Neverwas Haul represents a reimagining of the victorian era, an era when technology and exploration fueled the imagination of the Continent, and gentlemen and ladies of leisure set out in pursuit of the strange and wonderous. Inspired by the works of Jules Verne, the neverwas haul represents a combination of the Victorian love of comfort and imposition of its own values on to the primitive landscape of the old and new worlds and pure, unadultered belief in the overaching grace of technology.

Or something like that.

Music: The Dead Drum Sequence 4.9.09

Since so many of you have asked I just wanted to post my absolute favorite part of the entire Dead show last Saturday evening. Check out this crazy tribal/jungle/thunderstorm drum sequence...



Honestly, as many of you know, my heart was in the desert that night. While I liked parts of the show I definitely didn't dig it as much as Farilla. That said, I believe Farilla and his brother, Matt, enjoyed the show immensely! And quite frankly, that's what mattered to me the most.  Although, I did love all of the people-watching.  Lots of old Dead Heads getting high for the first time in ages...hmmm, a strange trip indeed! 

Photos: The YES Heard Around The World!

Last Saturday Farilla took me to my first Dead concert. He's a big fan of the Grateful Dead and I'm Farilla's biggest fan so it all works out. As soon as the show ended (11:30pm'ish) we hopped in the car and set off for Granite Pass. Sunday marked the 1 year anniversary of Team Limmie-ization. Not even The Dead could keep us from this momentous celebration! A couple of stops and one complete freeway closure later we arrived at The Pass. It must have been about 4am by the time my feet actually hit the dance floor. Thank you, My Love, for getting us there safely! We danced until the first sign of day break. Then, those who were still awake converged on The Church to watch the sunrise together just as Jimmoi & Lizziebot did 52 weeks earlier...

I'm still working my way through last week's CSA box. Since I'm out of Kale, Spinach & Parsley I decided to make my first green smoothie with Swiss Chard. Trust me when I say this actually tastes much better than it may look. Plus it's super filling.

Running: 4 More...



I made the mistake of getting on the machine that was acting up a couple of weeks ago. So silly of me to think the gym folks would actually fix the thing after I complained the first time. I was about 15 minutes into my run with a pace of 6.8mph. Then all of a sudden the machine slows down to 4.5mph. Totally annoying if not dangerous. It did this about 3 times before it decided to just shut down completely.  Hmmm, most definitely...not rad!

Local: Pacific Ocean Park



[YoVenice via YouTube]

Nice 3 minute video of Pacific Ocean Park, aka POP. Located in Santa Monica / Venice California. This was taken from a 1959 documentary called "Where The Mountains Meet The Sea". Rides shown are Sea Serpent Roller Coaster, Sky Ride, Sea Circus, Banana Boat Ride, Midway, Double Ferris Wheels, Diving Bells, and many others in the background. POP was finally taken from us in the early 1970's to make way for, well nothing..It's just beach now.
