One does not simply walk into Mortor

Someone told someone who told TJIC who told me about this. Now I'm telling you. Walk into Mortor

From The Lord of the Rings… well not really. 

Happy Birthday Philip Glass

Rock on! (as it were)

Dinner at Cambaz

VC and I went to Cambaz tonight… It’s a new Turkish restaurant downtown. Who knew you could have fun in Hackettstown? Now I’m not talking about one of the fine sports-bars in the nearby metropoli of Independance or Great Meadows (home to Bobalou’s Famous Steaks & Sports Bar and Stumpy’s Sports Pub respectfully). I’m talking right in the heart of Hackettstown, practically within sight of the famous Hackettstown Trading Post lion statues!

The atmosphere was welcoming. The owner’s sister came out and chatted with us about the table decorations (last time, the owner himself forced us to try some specials for free… the 5-hr baked lamb was good). The food was great, with a definitely authentic provincal tang to it. And the belly dancer was really good!

And of course, sharing the experience made it so much better! Heck, I probably wouldn’t have gone out to dinner if it weren’t for VC. And of course, a final thank you to my mom for getting me a gift certificate for the place for christmas!

Hurray for good eats!

My Western Trip

The Burning Man experience has convinced me that I should look into moving west. I’m looking for a place that’s sunnier, a bit slower, a bit more hip and quite a bit hippier. From Feb 22nd til March 2nd, I’m going to be traveling in the areas between San Jose, San Francisco and Grass Valley, looking for a nice place to live.

Revenge of George Lucas

From Boing Boing:

Here’s the text-crawl from the upcoming and final (?) Star Wars movie, Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, as leaked on the Star Wars official site.

General Grievous? Isn’t he a contemporary of Professor Chaos?

Separated at Birth?

Installed Random Image

VC said that my new blog lacked color. She missed the image at the top. So I’m putting a random image thingie at the top. :-)

Shortly you’ll be able to click on the thumbnails to see the full images. I might eventually get around to putting up some real gallery software.

Thanks to Photomatt for the script. Though I instantly noticed that this script doesn’t let me link to images from thumbnails, it just displays them.
