Score! I’ve been looking for this. Back the first time I ever read my poetry at a poetry slam. It’s dated 11/2009 I had written a poem to read there I’m Glad I’m Sad and with fear and trepidation I was thinking of what I might mumble for my poor excuse of words when it hit me – why not a poem for the mumbling. Hence the following which is one of two I read that first night. I actually believe that this Google search was the impetus for my start at poetry. Been turning the house upside down for weeks maybe months. Awakening from a self induced coma I thought to exercise my mind both left and right – previously wrong In ceramics throwing I thought to Google “Spokane Pottery” but English being what it is and my fingers often dyslexic Instead I found a broken mike I mistook for amateur night.   OK well there ya go. c ya… –...

Pigsty; Week 6

This is the second blog post on my project to turn my house that is an utter Pigsty into a home. There are a few of my own comments documenting the first couple weeks progress on my Original first Pigsty post. Couldn’t find my camera so used my cell phone…   I have kept to my commitment to do at least fifteen minutes upstairs and fifteen minutes downstairs. However the last couple weeks have been pretty much just that. Sometimes when I look at the mountains of disorganizations it feels overwhelming! On the other hand I have accomplished some other goals. I turned in my Comcast cable boxes and discontinued all television services. I still have Netflix but will let that lapse when my soon to be credit card on file expires. That has given me more freedom to kick my television watching addiction in favor of increasing my knowledge of some certain computer programming skills by way of silverlight ria services, asp.net MVC, WCF / OData and WPF. I submitted some of my ceramics for possible inclusion in an upcoming show. Planted still more grass in the minefield in my back yard, check out http://www.rodaw.com/jeffa/lawn-dog-hole-grass-yike/ posted a year ago. Back to the Pigsty. I discovered a huge closet I had forgotten about. (Inside view) In it I found some more outdated technology to get rid of. Check out these 3/4” top loading VCRs with and A/B edit controller too! A couple small touch ups and this closet will be my first triumph. I consider it the deepest part of my house. Hence the first place to get right!I’ve already started to move things I will keep back in to this closet while the rest of the house suffers even more from my Pigsty to home project. This is the upstairs recreational / music / rumpus room. It’s now filled mostly with things I’ve decided to get rid of by either selling on craigslist, recycling hopefully for a couple dollars and a more ecological disposal or as a last resort hauling to the dump that in this town is an incinerator. Check out this old portable 3/4” ENG tape deck and an audio cart...

Twoosh

(I originally sent this to my staff, a captive office, then thought it might make a good blog post for my two or three visitors per day to www.rodaw.com,) It’s often the simple things in life that can make my day.   I’ve been following this guy Scott Hanselman http://www.hanselman.com/blog/ He works at Microsoft and has had some incredible blog posts about most anything computer and not. Check out his video about his life with diabetes http://www.hanselman.com/blog/TeamHanselmanAndDiabetesWalk2010.aspx I stuck his banner up at rodaw.com and donated $25.00 The video of his insulin pump is interesting tech and his human element is very real. I started following him for asp.net MVC stuff. But have probably learned more about computers and other topics than the MVC… in watching some of his video presentations at Mix0x and such I learned about important sites like http://sadtrombone.com/ and http://instantrimshot.com/ This is a great post for must have utility software. http://www.hanselman.com/blog/ScottHanselmans2009UltimateDeveloperAndPowerUsersToolListForWindows.aspx So anyway I happened to read a blog post of his about twitter and learned what a twoosh is. Twoosh A twoosh is a tweet that is exactly 140 characters, no more no less. You’ve maximized the size of your tweet. Some folks believe this is a sign of skill. You’ll tweet and learn that it’s usually luck. :-) Some folks believe this is a sign of skill. :-) Furthermore Scott has been complaining about a neck ache http://www.hanselman.com/blog/TheProgrammersBody.aspx That’s a lot of background for this. I sent a tweet: jhalbrecht: @shanselman Honestly, Hanselman has huge healing html helping hands hourly  however his head hurts  him .  Hopefully his head heals  twoosh! Original Tweet: http://twitter.com/jhalbrecht/statuses/22308132754 And I got a nod: shanselman: @jhalbrecht well played sir! Original Tweet: http://twitter.com/shanselman/statuses/22340364550 That’s it. This mornings simple thing. Made me dance around my home office a couple moments :-) C ya…. –...

The Harrison Idaho Gig

Three girls on the dance floor three men on the bar stools three shots on that bar and three shots rang out loud three corpus delicti laid out at the morgue Jose Cuervo, Jack Daniels and thee.   I was visiting a friends performance in a little bar in Harrison Idaho. Suddenly three women jumped to the dance floor. Just as quick whatever the above is jumped into my mind. So FWIW there ya have it. –...

After a Half Night of Insomnia and PAWS Tooth Ache

  While trying to stay clean back in 2003, one morning having woken early from intense dreams, Insomnia etc. I wrote this. I’ve been looking for it for awhile. It’s more about life’s condition and living than recovery. Recovery sure does include asking the age old questions – at least it did for me. Well this printed copy showed up as I went through a stack of papers I’m cleaning in my effort to turn a pigsty into a home. As I write this introduction I’ve been clean  a bit over two years now. Longest I’ve ever gone since my first drug use high on Marijuana by a factor of four or more, that is this is the longest period. I think I went six months previously. I’m still an addict but I believe and hope the active part of that behavior is behind me for this lifetime. I’ve been wanting to find this because I remember feeling that I had fairly well put into words a bit of my soul, or how I process that which others may look to god to answer. My answer is that I don’t know, I won’t know, I’m not gona kill myself because I don’t know or die trying to know. Still I will reflect on that not knowing from time to time. OK now some neat nerd stuff. I had long lost the computer (stolen) that the electronic file for this piece was on. I used my Brother all in one printer with OCR capability to read a printed copy I found. Looks like 100% perfect transcription. It was a first generation copy printed on a laser printer. Yikes! My introduction is longer than the piece! Here it is unedited.   September 29, 2003 0708am after a half night of insomnia and PAWS tooth ache I set here with my pen in hand, keyboard and software though it may be. I wax poetic in my own way, limited by the shackles of un<mis>confidence in my writing and communication yet drawn or driven by the age-old and ageless question of what`s it all about, why is it? And what is it? I look for solace in the...
