AWESOME TABLE ON CRAIGSLIST...

Another great craiglist ad... how could you resist

Coffee Table of POWER!! - $45

Date: 2009-09-23, 7:28PM MST

This is not A table. This is THE table! It has been said (by me) that the table may contain magical powers and was probably blessed by a genie before it left the factory. You can see its amazingness just by looking at its mystical lemon shape (some say more trapezoidal). What does it mean!? Only the wise may know its true greatness. The table will make your dreams come true! The table knows all! The table can see into your mind! The table can see into your soul!
THE GOOD: Because of its unique shape, the table has a lot of surface area without taking up a lot of room and it can fit into some unusual spaces. It is made of very solid glass and can fit in with almost any decor scheme, whether it be casual, modern, elegant, or zombie. There is space between the legs at the bottom so you can put stuff underneath if you want. If you have a cat they can crawl under there and feel like they are hiding, but you can stare at them creepily from the top.
THE BAD: Bad like Michael Jackson!
THE UGLY: It has a chip in one of its legs (probably caused by something cool like a sword fight or ninjas), however it is not super noticeable because of its design. It would be perfect if you want to annoy someone who is super OCD and notices little details. Then the chip would be laughing at them, mocking, glaring in their face! See? The chip in itself has powers.
How can you afford NOT to buy this? Please contact if you are interested and we will set up a time for you to come and bask in the glory of the table. The glass is very solid and heavy, so you will probably want to bring an extra set of hands along (preferably attached to a person) to help move it. And keep in mind that it is glass, so bring your magic carpet, or at least make sure your car or truck is well padded for the ride home. Asking $45 OBO.

AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL FINES...

I was doing some more aerial photos the other day and was told about ATC fines... Air Traffic Controllers can be fined for inappropriate language on occasions. One was recently fined $1000 for calling a British Airways pilot a "weenie" for not complying. I think pilots can be fined too.

The most outrageous one that raised a few eyebrows (and a fine) was when a pilot coming in to Honolulu on a Japanese airline was having difficulties and the ATC person was getting frustrated providing details. The pilot apparently got in big trouble by replying to the question of "havent you been here before?" with "Look, I was only only here once before in 1943 and I didn't stop!"

Ouch. If that does not make sense to you... google "Pearl Harbor"

BIKE RIDING ON TREES

It might start slow but there are some great stunts in here...
at 3:14 tree flip is wild.
At 4:15 stairs is impressive too.

TWO THOUSAND PEOPLE!


Wow, did the Greater Edmonton Teachers Conference and had my first 2000 deep audience. What a hoot. 100 people turned away too. 

What a fun time :-) Crazy!

PARKING MAYHEM

Mom sent this and despite the horrifying music, the footage is really rather amusing... As long it is NOT you in one of these cars I guess.

PRIMITI TOO TAA

Funny I just thought of this again... a wonderful animation short I saw a decade ago and just loved. It was all done on a typewriter. With the advent of youtube, I just keyed it and and here you go. Jaap Blonk does versions of Kurt Schwitter's Ursonate poem too. 

This may not be for everyone, but I loved the weird back when I was a kid too. Lets celebrate truly whacked out stuff! Join in the fun :-)

BEST COMB OVER EVER...

I have a very small bald spot myself and wonder if this might work... You likely never noticed since it is so hard to spot, but if I lean JUST the right way... you might see it ;-). 

Here is a handy way to do a wonder with "what you got". Please note there is a spot of profanity in the last moment of this... but as Penn Gillette says... it is "pretty ____ awsome!"

LOOKING DOWN ON A WHITE CITY?

This must be record for Vancouver. This is unheard of to get this much snow here. I have a heli shoot to do that needs sunny skies and no snow (except on peaks). Fingers crossed!

A REFRESHING DIP WITH SOME REFRESHING DIPS...

Polar Bear 2009! This is New years to me. This was my Silver Anniversary... I have done this 25 times! Egads what was I thinking. This was a cold one with snow on the ground and a wind chill. 

Wahoo. Best to all for 2009.
