Anyone for bow hunting?

I have a number of “old” computers that still have valuable data on the IDE drives. On the advice of Dave I picked up an external firewire case for IDE drives — it's awesome, now I just have a stack of drives on my desk with marker writing on the side indicating what's on them and I swap them as need be. Very convenient!

Anyway, as I was driving up in the big Jeep up to the computer store to pick that up hardware I got the usual people yelling “cut your hair you faggot” and “nice tattoos queer” and the rest of the BS that probably every guy on IAM puts up with constantly. One of the problems with living in a culture where you can't just shoot assholes on the spot is that people know they can get away with saying whatever they want on the whole… which has the effect of turning cowards into loudmouths.

Anyway, an East Indian guy pulls up beside me as I'm parking, and says to me (in a thick accent no less), “do you like Ted Nugent?” I don't, but I sure did appreciate the genuine humor in his roast, so I replied, “everybody loves the Nuge!” and he drove off with a huge smile on his face.

I don't know if it's my generally dirtbaggish appearance or the truck, but today was definitely a yell-at-shannonfest. Oh, and that photo is from the shoot Phil did at Badur's film screening. I'll have more both on the DVD and on those photos later today.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
